Quiet Transfer Window Shows Reds' Growth

Quiet Transfer Window Shows Reds' Growth

I hate transfer windows. I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again. A solid third of the year – and that’s just when it’s open – dedicated to incessant droning about every player under the sun, consistent links and, worst of all, complaining about things that haven’t even happened yet. “Why on earth haven’t Liverpool signed any players yet?” bemoans Steve, 14, from Huddersfield, on 1st July (this is a random example so apologies if your name is Steve, …

Mo Salah and the Social Media Fallacy

Mo Salah and the Social Media Fallacy

“2019 Resolution: time to get in touch, for real.” That was Mohamed Salah’s last ever tweet. His social media presence vanished, disappearing into the vast void of Internet information that once was. Salah’s deletion of all social media accounts has brought with it a series of questions. Why would he do such a thing? Is he cracking under the pressure of such intense scrutiny for winning penalties? Does this mean he’ll score even more goals now he’s done browsing Reddit …
Liverpool's Defence Is More Than VVD and Alisson

Liverpool's Defence Is More Than VVD and Alisson

It’s true that Virgil Van Dijk is the best centre-back in the league. It’s true that his impact on this Liverpool team has been absolutely tremendous, and it’s true that his signing is one of the best that Liverpool have made in years. Likewise, it’s true that buying Alisson Becker was an absolutely crucial piece of the puzzle. Alisson has magnified the issues that Liverpool’s previous keepers have made, immediately established himself as one of the league’s top shot-stoppers and …

Ajax Pair Could Help Liverpool’s Title Bid

Ajax Pair Could Help Liverpool’s Title Bid

The January transfer window is now open. After Liverpool’s first defeat of the Premier League season to rivals Manchester City, it is possible that manager Jurgen Klopp could be tempted to dip into the transfer market. Liverpool still hold a four-point lead at the top of the Premiership and whilst the current squad may have Klopp’s backing, it may be wise for the club to strengthen this month. Having won all their December fixtures and enjoying a successful festive period, …
Liverpool's Midfield - Still Not Consistent Enough

Liverpool's Midfield - Still Not Consistent Enough

Liverpool's unbeaten start in the league came to an end last week, which prompted old insecurities in the supporters. A lot of finger-pointing and scapegoating has taken place since. When the starting line-ups were announced there were only two ways it was going to go - the Reds don't lose, and nobody cares, or City beat us, and we all blame the midfield and Dejan Lovren. The Croatian is a topic for another day. I decided to look into how …

Dejan Lovren's deja vu

Dejan Lovren's deja vu

For many, Liverpool’s defeat to Manchester City must’ve felt like a rerun of a movie you’d seen plenty of times throughout the years. A midfield three lacking creativity, picked solely for their energy and experience of the system being deployed, was swarmed by counterparts possessing superior quality both on and off of the ball. The Reds lacked rhythm and their service to the front three was erratic at best as they struggled to string passes together and stamp their authority …
