Six games, 18 days: The period where Klopp's squad will be acutely assessed

Six games, 18 days. Forget the 100 per cent start to the new league season, this is the period where the bulk of Jurgen Klopp's squad will be put through the wringer. The European champions will barely have an opportunity to breathe once the team are reunited following the international break and the return to club football. Questions were raised over the manager's decision to not dip into the transfer market for fresh ammunition, and this will be the period …
Joel Matip's impressive start to 2019/20

Joel Matip's impressive start to 2019/20

Liverpool’s win over Arsenal last weekend included several star performers in Jurgen Klopp’s side. Mo Salah was back to his very best as he scored two goals – one of which will be a contender for Goal of the Month, even if Sky Sports’ commentary failed to provide suitable audio commentary to the goal. Virgil van Dijk, Roberto Firmino and Fabinho all performed at the high standards we have come to expect over the last two seasons. Van Dijk was …
Joel Matip: The best partner for Virgil Van Dijk

Joel Matip: The best partner for Virgil Van Dijk

We're four years into Joel Matip's Liverpool career and only now are we getting to see him finally fulfil his potential. He arrived during the summer of 2016 and immediately had fans on his side purely by not being Martin Skrtel. For years prior, the Slovakian had been one of the mainstays in a leaky backline for the Reds. Matip was not just seen as an upgrade but as a better fit in general. His first thought wasn't to retreat …
Selling Dejan Lovren - another gamble

Selling Dejan Lovren - another gamble

Reports in the media today strongly suggest that Dejan Lovren is headed to Italy on a permanent deal. He did not travel with the team to Istanbul, so it's quite possible the rumours are based on reality than your regular summer click-bait. The Croat found himself down the pecking order after representing his country in the World Cup final last summer. After undoubtedly the highlight of his career at that point, Lovren was plagued by injuries for most of last …
Why Liverpool are right to sell Dejan Lovren

Why Liverpool are right to sell Dejan Lovren

After five years of being one of the most divisive players in Liverpool's history, the end appears to be nigh for Dejan Lovren at Anfield. If (trustworthy) rumours are to be believed,  the 30-year-old is on the verge of completing a move to Roma, having accepted that being fourth choice centre-back is going to be no barrel of laughs. The first thing to say is that Lovren deserves credit for actually wanting to go out and prove himself elsewhere, rather …
Lovren Exit Could Pave The Way For Prospects

Lovren Exit Could Pave The Way For Prospects

Liverpool defender Dejan Lovren has continuously been linked with a move to Italy this summer. The Croatian centre half, 30, was a rumoured target for A.C. Milan, with the Rossoneri apparently eager to lend a central defender this summer. Now, however, it appears the San Siro side have competition for the former Southampton and Lyon man's signature from their Serie A rival's, AS Roma. According to a report in La Gazzetta Dello Sport, Roma have turned their attentions towards Lovren …
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 …
Selecting the perfect 2019/20 Liverpool squad

Selecting the perfect 2019/20 Liverpool squad

After a tiring but ultimately thrilling season, Liverpool are almost ready to go again. A number of players will return to Melwood for pre-season training next week, as preparations for another huge campaign begin for Jurgen Klopp and his staff. It's been a relatively silent summer on the transfer front so far, barring the addition of exciting centre-back Sepp van den Berg, but a few more incomings will surely arrive in the coming weeks, despite what some are reporting. Several …
Liverpool's Biggest Moments 2018/19 - The Premier League

Liverpool's Biggest Moments 2018/19 - The Premier League

The 2018/19 season has been over for a couple of weeks now, and it’s been a full month since the Premier League finished, so it seems like a good time to reflect on what was an absolutely scintillating campaign for Liverpool. Now, I wanted this list of moments to be a bit different for a couple of reasons: there are obviously a few that speak for themselves, which could make elements of a top five list a bit predictable. So …
Dejan Lovren: Sell or Keep?

Dejan Lovren: Sell or Keep?

The 29-year-old Croatian defender has slipped down the pecking order at the club over the past season. Long term injury and the performances of Joe Gomez and more recently Joel Matip have meant Lovren currently occupies the space of fourth choice centre back With the summer transfer window almost upon us rumours are beginning to swirl about the players future at the club. AC Milan are reported to be interested in Lovren who is thought to be available for a  …
