What if...Liverpool Actually Signed Konoplyanka?

What if...Liverpool Actually Signed Konoplyanka?

Regret’s a funny thing, isn’t it? When any Liverpool fan sees the words “What if?” their thoughts could very easily be drawn back to any of the misfortunes befalling the club since the famed night in Istanbul, over fourteen years ago. That, to any reasonable Red, was the night their team sold their soul to the devil. The last fourteen years has been the payment, staggered in instalments. Of course, they endured Hicks and Gillett; that was perilous and depressing …
What If...Henderson wasn't sent-off against Man City?

What If...Henderson wasn't sent-off against Man City?

In the latest in our 'What If?' series, Jordan Henderson's damaging red card against Manchester City is bemoaned by Henry Jackson. Anyone who reads my work or has to suffer through my endless tweets will know that I am a big admirer of Henderson. A player who has been almost ridiculously maligned by some down the years, he has now forged quite a career at Liverpool, captaining the Reds to Champions League glory. Next May, he will hopefully become Liverpool's …
We're All Believers Now

We're All Believers Now

The concept of belief is a funny thing. Very close to the end of Liverpool’s incredible, awe-inspiring, death-defying 4-0 win over Barcelona, the question was asked whether there were any Liverpool fans who believed that their team would be in that position, hanging on (if you could call it that, the result was almost never in doubt by the end) to a 4-3 aggregate lead. And I guess everyone has their own story. For me, I was about to board …
Liverpool 4 Barcelona 0 - What happened?

Liverpool 4 Barcelona 0 - What happened? "Football"

What happened? “Football.” The one-word response from Jurgen Klopp somehow summed up yet another breathtaking night at Anfield. With the team missing three of its most vital performers in Mo Salah, Bobby Firmino and Naby Keita, the three goal deficit left for The Reds after the first leg was so insane that it somehow made us feel more confident. It was a set-up made for this crazy club. Who would the manager piece together to take on this herculean task? …

Time For Forgotten Man Keita To Excel

Time For Forgotten Man Keita To Excel

It's hard to think of a Liverpool signing in the last decade that brought as much delight as the capture of Naby Keita. Luis Suarez is a name that instantly springs to mind, but when he traded Amsterdam for Anfield he wasn’t the world-beater he would go on to become. Mo Salah and Sadio Mane both arrived to mixed reactions, while the likes of Philippe Coutinho and Roberto Firmino only became global stars once they moved to the Reds, like …
The FSG Spending Myth

The FSG Spending Myth

With Liverpool in the middle of a critically important transfer window (aren’t they always?), it seems like a perfect time to revisit a recurring myth amongst the Liverpool fanbase: FSG refuse to spend the money to compete for trophies. As an American Liverpool fan, I scoff at the notion that Fenway Sports Group is a bunch of cheapskates who do not like to put money into their teams. This is because FSG also just happens to own the Boston Red …
Mohamed Salah: Liverpool’s Biggest Bargain in The Premier League Era?

Mohamed Salah: Liverpool’s Biggest Bargain in The Premier League Era?

Where Does The Egyptian Rank Among Liverpool’s Best Premier League Signings? The sensational Mohamed Salah has been a revelation for Liverpool this season, but where does he rank among Liverpool’s best value signings in the Premier League era? There are a number of contenders in the running for 2017/18’s various player of the year awards, and Mohamed Salah certainly stands among them. However, if there was an award given out each year for the best signing of the season, Salah …
Liverpool's Attack: From Down Right Disaster To Destructive In Just Three Years

Liverpool's Attack: From Down Right Disaster To Destructive In Just Three Years

Cast your minds back to the gloomy 2014/15 season in which Liverpool parted ways with the talismanic figure of Luis Suarez, replacing him with Rickie Lambert and the ever egotistical Mario Balotelli. From goals galore in 2013/14 to a troublesome goal drought the following season, Brendan Rodgers' side went from a team that could do no wrong to one devoid of attacking verve. The £16million move for Balotelli was a gamble that never paid off, with the forward scoring his …
