Liverpool have Squad Depth to Cover for Injuries

Liverpool have Squad Depth to Cover for Injuries

Injury is a word I thoroughly hate, especially if it concerns a Liverpool player. We’ve been down this road before, particularly last season where we could field quite a strong lineup with the number of injuries the Liverpool squad had absorbed. We missed key players who were unavailable for very important fixtures, Mamadou Sakho walking off the pitch at Wembley during the Capital One Cup Final against Manchester City last season as an example. Once again, two months down the …
The Sakho Conundrum

The Sakho Conundrum

The last few months have been nothing short of a roller coaster ride for Liverpool’s #3, Mamadou Sakho. Being accused (falsely) for taking an illegal substance, subsequently missing out on very important matches for Liverpool, to being acquitted of those charges a a few months later. Then he picked up an injury, got sent home from the preseason tour for his tardiness and apparent stubbornness on a few occasions, to eventually being out of favour at Liverpool Football Club. Mamadou …
Tottenham vs Liverpool Preview: Reds aim to bounce back!

Tottenham vs Liverpool Preview: Reds aim to bounce back!

After a midweek pick-me-up against Burton Albion on Tuesday evening, Liverpool get stuck back into Premier League action on Saturday with their third league game of the season, away at Tottenham Hotspur. It's Liverpool's third straight away game before the international break, and it's after Saturday's game that fans can look forward to Anfield's expanded Main Stand being put into use on Match day 4, against Leicester City. Form It's been a mixed start to the season for each side, …
Loaning Out Sakho Makes No Sense

Loaning Out Sakho Makes No Sense

Liverpool fans have been starved of 10.30pm news for weeks now but after the news broke that the club were open to loaning out Mamadou Sakho many fans were left ruing their recent demands for transfer news. Sakho is by no means a fan favourite and the suspension towards the end of last season coupled with being sent home from the pre-season tour has widened the gap between fans who rate the Frenchman and think he should be starting and …
Who is Liverpool's Leader?

Who is Liverpool's Leader?

There are two types of leadership. First would be a leader who leads by default. He’s the type of personality that is allowed to lead or dictate only by his rank. Then you have, in my opinion, the true leader. One who leads and is followed through merit by gaining the utmost respect from his colleagues, teammates, and even a ranking officer.  And you need that on the pitch. You need someone who would only need to stare at you, …
Still Spaces To Fill At Liverpool - A Left Back Please

Still Spaces To Fill At Liverpool - A Left Back Please

AI writers have got together and what will follow will be a series of articles where in an ideal world scenario, if we could still have one further acquisition to enhance the Liverpool playing squad who would it be, and what position would that player fill. As we know Liverpool have been very busy in the off season bringing in a number of players, in attacking positions  we now have numerous options to cause opponents problems, and how Jurgen Klopp …
Liverpool's Defence: The Lost Art Of Keeping A Clean Sheet

Liverpool's Defence: The Lost Art Of Keeping A Clean Sheet

…And Liverpool’s right centre back conundrum. Ever since the halcyon days of Jamie Carragher’s partnerships with Sami Hyypia and Daniel Agger Liverpool fans haven’t witnessed a truly balance centre half pairing at Anfield. We’ve seen Skrtel, Kolo and a selection of left sided centre halves trying to fill the void at right centre back. The club’s transfer committee and last two managers have bought in a growing list of specialist left sided centre backs. Sakho, no doubt the club’s best …
James Milner must prove doubters wrong again next season

James Milner must prove doubters wrong again next season

When Mamadou Sakho claimed Liverpool’s number 3 squad number on Monday morning, curious Liverpool fans glancing down the squad list were perhaps most disappointed when reminded about the incumbent of one shirt in particular – James Milner and the number 7. The previous holder of that shirt had been the magical Luis Suarez, one of very few worthy successors to the shirt of the king of the kop, Kenny Dalglish, over 25 years ago. James Milner, boring, versatile, and honest James Milner, does …
Liverpool FC: The Need for a Balanced Midfield

Liverpool FC: The Need for a Balanced Midfield

Jurgen Klopp's favoured formation appears to be 4-2-3-1, so with this attacking format the two central midfielders have a huge role to play in respect of providing cover for the defence. This piece looks at if currently Liverpool have the players to provide that balance and if not, what do they require, to try to provide Liverpool with a ballast against the attacking flair that is evident within the side, to propel the side up the league this upcoming season. …
Mamadou Sakho: President of the Liverpool Country

Mamadou Sakho: President of the Liverpool Country

As things stand, Mamadou Sakho is without a doubt, the most loved player of Liverpool Football Club. Since arriving from Paris Saint-Germain in the summer of 2013, he has stolen the hearts of Liverpool fans with his amusing, humble personality. I remember once he hopped into a stand filled with Liverpool fans, and acted like a ridiculous fan boy, screaming at Skrtel, Lucas, and Adam Lallana for an autograph until the latter finally made his way to him and signed …
