How Does Diaz Compare to Mo Salah at Roma?

In the aftermath of the Diaz transfer being confirmed, those involved on the Under Pressure podcast were investigating the stats behind the Reds' new signing. In an effort to compare different leagues, Dan Kennett used two different academic studies (that you can read here and here).
"Arguing about domestic league strength is something that soccer fans seems to never tire of. (“Could Messi do it on a cold rainy night in Stoke?”) Many of these conversations are anecdotal, leading to …
Liverpool's Perfect Transfer Window?

Liverpool's Perfect Transfer Window?

It was so close: had Nat Phillips been sold on a permanent transfer for a fee of around £10m, and Liverpool secured the signature of Fabio Carvalho from Fuham then FSG, Julian Ward and the departing Micheal Edwards would have achieved a 'perfect' transfer window according to Dave Hendrick on AI Scouted. As it turned out, and explained in far more detail on the above episode, Phillips joined Bournemouth on loan and administrative issues prevented Liverpool from completing the Carvalho …

Fabio Carvalho - The Endgame Won’t Alter

The start of this winter transfer window was full of frustration, as the entire fanbase were concerned that FSG would never back any January purchases. Then, much like the past Fabinho deal, a target arose, and was swiftly announced as a red. The speed and confidence with how the deal was confirmed was beyond satisfying, and should point to a more aggressive transfer policy. The signing of the Columbian international, Luis Diaz, was both unexpected and spectacular. The rumblings of …

I've also seen some compare him to Sadio Mane and Roberto Firmino. He is the sort to take something personally. If someone fouls him,  he will …
Luis Díaz - The Lowdown

Luis Díaz - The Lowdown

Not since Ibrahima Konate arrived at Anfield have I been able to submit a piece on a new Liverpool signing. Yet as the first month of 2022 draws to a close, the final period of the transfer window appears to have delivered the Reds' fanbase at least one new signing. Whereas all top level football fans are spoilt, expectant and usually unrealistic within a time of pandemic, Liverpool fans have every right to be relieved at what must be considered …
Where does Luis Diaz fit into Liverpool's team?

Where does Luis Diaz fit into Liverpool's team?

So, it is Luis Diaz. Having been linked with a host of attackers over the last couple of months, the decision has been made and the Colombian looks set to be the latest addition to the Liverpool forward line. At the time of writing this, anyway. We could end up with another Nabil Fekir situation.   For now, everything seems to be moving smoothly.  In a previous feature on the site, we have looked at why Diaz might’ve been targeted. This …
Why Liverpool want Luis Diaz

Why Liverpool want Luis Diaz

Money will have played a part in the club’s decision to opt for Diaz over others. This is not a case of Liverpool being cheap or FSG being tight though.  The Reds have been linked with Arnaut Danjuma and Harvey Barnes over recent months.   Both ply their trade on the left of attack and would be an eventual replacement for Sadio Mane. Both would cost in excess of £60million - Danjuma has a release clause and Leicester always seem …
