Bruno Fernandes could be Liverpool’s very own Bernardo Silva

Bruno Fernandes could be Liverpool’s very own Bernardo Silva

Bernardo Silva has crafted a reputation for himself as the opposition player every fan seems to want in their team. It’s understandable as to why this is the case. The Portuguese magician is a defensive forward. Everything Roberto Firmino is praised for, the City man does too. He’s managed to combine work rate, flair and a robustness not usually associated with players of his style into what could be described as Pep Guardiola’s perfect player.  What he does for City …
Liverpool Must Not Underestimate The Importance Of Investment This Summer

Liverpool Must Not Underestimate The Importance Of Investment This Summer

It's been a fairly interesting pre-season so far. Premier League champions Manchester City have also been heavily linked with Spanish international Rodri, a 23-year-old central midfielder currently learning his trade at Atletico Madrid. Another of Liverpool's rivals, Manchester United, completed the signing of right-back Aaron Wan Bissaka from Crystal Palace - who has drawn many comparisons to the Reds' own full-back Alexander Arnold. The Red Devils have also been linked with Leicester centre-back Harry Maguire, who could be another to …
Why Keita could be key to Liverpool becoming English Kings

Why Keita could be key to Liverpool becoming English Kings

In the context of a football match, a midfielder receiving the ball, dawdling on it, eating a few seconds of time before laterally recycling it is no big deal. It happens umpteen times in the course of every game. In the case of Naby Keita’s Liverpool career, however, it could be symbolic of the Guinean fully acclimating to both Jurgen Klopp’s tactical demands and the pressure’s associated with playing for a worldwide footballing institution such as the Reds. In a …
Moments For The Underdogs: Joel Matip and Divock Origi

Moments For The Underdogs: Joel Matip and Divock Origi

 ‘I like being the underdog so they don’t expect what’s going to happen…’
The biggest moments aren’t always meant for the biggest players, the best players, the ones who you’d expect to take up the mantle when everything is on the line. Those glittering, do or die moments can spark the emergence of those who have faded into the background, the underdogs in a group of top dogs who make their mark where no one thought it possible. …

Hot in the City - Facts & Figures from the Money Talks Podcast

A near flawless league campaign saw Liverpool become the first team to secure 97 points and not win the league. They were bested by Manchester City who, in consecutive seasons have achieved an unprecedented and colossal 198 points, enabled by their manager and squad. Understat's xPoints model has Liverpool on 83.45 points, whereas City is on 90.64. This disparity, far greater than the actual points difference is the product of all the chances faced and created, by both sides, simulated …
Obsessed: Everyone Can't Stop Talking About Liverpool

Obsessed: Everyone Can't Stop Talking About Liverpool

"People don't like winners."
Pep Guardiola was remarkably defensive but also equally defiant at his press conference. He would go on to state that his club simply does not get the same respect afforded to Liverpool. It's probably true. Over the past few months, he has likely faced as many questions about Liverpool as Jürgen Klopp. Liverpool is the team that simply refuses to go away. Unshakeable, and impossible to throw off, Liverpool took Manchester City all the …
Why Madrid Must Be Liverpool's Crowning Moment

Why Madrid Must Be Liverpool's Crowning Moment

This Liverpool team has to be remembered. This has been the main thought going round my head in recent weeks, during what has been one of the most emotionally draining seasons in memory. For anyone under the age of 40, I doubt I'm alone in saying a Reds side hasn't felt this special before - none have left you feeling so connected and in love with it. There have been some top class teams since the glory days, but this …
Time For Klopp's Liverpool To Stop Being Nearly Men

Time For Klopp's Liverpool To Stop Being Nearly Men

In Jürgen Klopp’s first season as Liverpool manager, his team reached an excellent two cup finals, losing the League Cup final on penalties to Man City, before throwing away a 1-0 lead at half-time to Sevilla in the Europa League final, a competition that included sensational wins over Man United, Villareal and most notably Borussia Dortmund. Now at the time, and certainly with hindsight, Liverpool fans certainly felt that these cup finals were the Reds ahead of schedule, and not …
Observations as Liverpool Miss Out on the Title

Observations as Liverpool Miss Out on the Title

This was grace in defeat, going down in the most beautiful way. Liverpool pushed and pulled and forced their way to 97 points, they made City work for the title. Amassing more points than the Invincibles and any United side managed by Sir Alex Ferguson, there could be no shame in not winning the most coveted prize. Sadio Mane signs out with a bang A team encapsulating so many attacking riches, Sadio Mane has stood up to become No.1 so …
Naby Keita Ensures Liverpool At Their Best

Naby Keita Ensures Liverpool At Their Best

Naby Keita. Look, I’ve been on board the Naby train since Day One. I maintain that he’s the most complete midfielder that this club has had since… well you know. He’s the best two-way midfielder in the Premier League and possibly in Europe, and he’s an absolutely incredible athlete. I’m getting all the superlatives out of the way in the first paragraph because I don’t want to be accused of being biased or having an agenda later on. Yes, I’m …
