Why Excitement and Patience Need to be balanced with Rhian Brewster

Why Excitement and Patience Need to be balanced with Rhian Brewster

As if Liverpool fans weren't already licking their lips at the prospect of Rhian Brewster playing a part in Jürgen Klopp's plans for the upcoming season already, they certainly are now after the teenager striker bagged a brace in the Reds' first pre-season friendly against Tranmere this week. While many will be quick to point out that yes, it's only pre-season and yes, it was only Tranmere Liverpool were up against; there's no denying that Brewster looked sharp, dangerous and …
How Hungry Are Liverpool?

How Hungry Are Liverpool?

The Champions League final in Madrid was an incredible night and was certainly the best way to cap off a fantastic 2018/19 season. I was on the streets of Liverpool with hundreds of thousands of others the following day to witness Jürgen Klopp and his team parade the famous trophy and bask in the glory they’d earned. After the heartbreak of the previous year’s final in Kyiv, and after just falling short in the Premier League title race despite racking …
No Need to Sign a Striker This Summer

No Need to Sign a Striker This Summer

After enjoying a goal-laden season Liverpool are apparently in the market for a new striker, after losing Daniel Sturridge at the end of his contract with the club. The club, despite scoring 115 goals in all competitions last season, are believed by some to be short at the front end of the pitch. With Sadio Mane, Mohammed Salah and Roberto Firmino leading the line it's safe to say goals will not be a problem next season. In-depth strength is a …
How Milner Continues to be Liverpool's Ultimate Role Model

How Milner Continues to be Liverpool's Ultimate Role Model

Who else remembers James Milner's arrival at Liverpool four summers ago? It's easy to forget it, in truth. When Brendan Rodgers took him to Anfield on a free transfer ahead of the 2015/16 season, it wasn't a signing that felt game-changing, exciting or fashionable. At 29, there was an argument that the midfielder's best days were behind him, following a stint at Man City in which he proved to be an invaluable utility man. Liverpool signing him almost epitomised that …
Preparing to go again: Klopp's Mentality is Crucial

Preparing to go again: Klopp's Mentality is Crucial

The Reds have been back at Melwood for a few days but it still seems crazy to think about the new season. It only seems like two minutes ago that Reds were bouncing around in Madrid, and then back in Liverpool. But this is it. A new season. Last season’s success answered so many questions that people had of this Liverpool team – and Klopp himself. He finally won a final, but now his challenge is different. He has the …
Don't You Forget About Mo

Don't You Forget About Mo

A question that often gets asked of Liverpool fans is, "Who do you feel is the most underrated player in the squad?". You see the same sort of names provided, more often than not: Gini Wijnaldum, Joel Matip, even Andy Robertson before his excellent 2018/19 season. A player who I feel deserves the tag of most under-appreciated within the Reds' roster, though, is Mohamed Salah. Some of you probably think I'm mad to suggest Mo: 2017/18 PFA Player of the …
Why Liverpool Don't Need An Attacking Midfielder

Why Liverpool Don't Need An Attacking Midfielder

Ever since the departure of Philippe Coutinho to Barcelona in January 2018, one principal question has lingered on Merseyside during transfer periods: how will Liverpool replace him? On the surface, it makes sense, but look deeper and it doesn't really hold water. Since January 2018, a Countinho-less Liverpool have been to two Champions League finals, tallied a club-record points haul in the Premier League and lifted "old big-ears" for the sixth time. So while headlines abound as the Reds are …
Ruthless Reds: How Liverpool Can Build on a Sixth European Cup

Ruthless Reds: How Liverpool Can Build on a Sixth European Cup

Having still not come down from the high of watching the mighty Reds lift number six, it's easy to cast a sentimental judgement on the squad which gave us a night to remember in Madrid. However, this summer is not a time for Liverpool to rest on their laurels. From winning the Champions League in 2005 to finishing second in the league in 2008/09 and 2013/14, the Reds have found themselves in extremely strong positions in the past but we've …
Origi Stay Signals Liverpool's Transfer Intent

Origi Stay Signals Liverpool's Transfer Intent

Divock Origi will be staying at Anfield for at least one more year. Whilst it remains unclear whether the Belgian will sign a new deal with the Reds, although Liverpool are certainly hoping that he will, what is clear is that no offers for Origi will be entertained in this window, even if that means losing the player on a free next summer. There are a number of interesting aspects to this story. The first thing to note is that …
How Should Liverpool's Transfer Window Play Out?

How Should Liverpool's Transfer Window Play Out?

Who else remembers when Liverpool were European champions just three weeks ago, and everything seemed good in the world? Then the transfer window came along - a period of any year that is fast becoming unbearable, having seemed far more enjoyable in the past. When it comes to the Reds' upcoming business, it is no surprise to see opinion split on the matter. On one side, you have those who see this as one of the most important summers in …
