Finding Faux-kir | The Search for Fekir Alternatives

It was either him or us. Someone was going to get hurt here. Fekir or us Liverpool fans. Either his knee would collapse, or the deal to sign him would. He had already been interviewed for the site, done the photo shoot, sold his house in France, told his ex-colleagues what he really thought of them and cancelled his milk order. Then Liverpool pulled the plug. At least that is how I believe it played out based on some reactions …
Liverpool FC - Getting Smarter

Liverpool FC - Getting Smarter

Liverpool football club is not at the top of the transfer food chain. It's an unpleasant fact but we need to accept it. There are clubs that are richer, stronger and can offer guarantees that LFC just can't. So it's natural that some players will use the famous red jersey as a stepping stone to get to supposedly better clubs. This has been happening for years. Even Steven Gerrard considered it at on point. Just in the past 10 years, …
Alternative Fekirs: Where should Liverpool turn to next?

Alternative Fekirs: Where should Liverpool turn to next?

It was definitely going to be Thursday, then absolutely Friday, then without question Saturday… but at 8pm Saturday night, the Nabil Fekir saga came to an abrupt halt. Depending on which party you believe, Liverpool had reservations once they had the opportunity to review the details of Fekir’s knee reconstructions from two years prior or Liverpool were simply using the knee as an excuse to try and renegotiate a lower fee at the last minute. Regardless of who you believe, …

Trust Michael Edwards - He's Smarter Than Us

It’s been a very strange and very fraught weekend for Liverpool fans. The timeline is sketchy, details are even sketchier but on Thursday night, it was announced that Liverpool had wrapped up a deal with Nabil Fekir. On Friday morning, Lyon denounced that, and rumours flooded that Fekir had failed his medical. Those rumours were largely debunked, and speculation ran rampant but the announcement of Fekir never came, until finally on Saturday night, Lyon announced that the deal was dead. …
Nabil Fekir: The Perfect Fourth Man?

Nabil Fekir: The Perfect Fourth Man?

Liverpool are on the march to Kiev. Amidst the blitzkrieg of goals, celebrations and stunning attacking tsunamis, however, is quite the stark realisation. Liverpool got to the Champions League final off the back of a scintillating, devastating, and unparalleled front three, with a lion tamer of a manager orchestrating their rise to potential infamy. But there needs to be a fourth. Phil Coutinho once rounded out the quartet, and the signing of Mohamed Salah was an excellent one solely for …
Lovren's Actions Speak Louder Than Words

Lovren's Actions Speak Louder Than Words

Dejan Lovren is mentally weak. I don't like making assumptions or accusations like this, especially when they're towards people I don't personally know, but this is just something you can't ignore. All players want to be loved but Dejan Lovren seems like the sort that needs positive reinforcement to function. Less than one week after saying he doesn't want to be the made the scapegoat again this season he's making Patrick Ronaldinho look like Sergio Aguero. Poor defensive positioning against a Malaysian side …
