Liverpool Must Improve

Liverpool Must Improve

Absurd title, isn’t it? Allow me to explain... Every Premier League game these days feels like a ‘must win’ for Liverpool Football Club. Such is life when you’re effectively chasing perfection and trying to outdo this Manchester City outfit. The opening five (admittedly kind) league matches have been expertly navigated by Jürgen Klopp, yielding the perfect 15 point return that Liverpool fans dreamed of when the season began. Now though, as summer ebbs away and the Champions League kicks off …
Liverpool's Money Factory

Liverpool's Money Factory

Liverpool sold academy striker Bobby Duncan to Fiorentina after the Serie A side made an offer to sign the 18-year-old permanently. The Reds will reputedly pocket €2million upfront with a 20% sell-on fee for the former Manchester City underage player. Duncan wasn't the only player out the Anfield exit door on European Transfer Deadline Day. Ryan Kent joined Rangers -- who he spent last season on loan at -- for a fee in the region of £7,000,000. The English duo's …
Joel Matip: The best partner for Virgil Van Dijk

Joel Matip: The best partner for Virgil Van Dijk

We're four years into Joel Matip's Liverpool career and only now are we getting to see him finally fulfil his potential. He arrived during the summer of 2016 and immediately had fans on his side purely by not being Martin Skrtel. For years prior, the Slovakian had been one of the mainstays in a leaky backline for the Reds. Matip was not just seen as an upgrade but as a better fit in general. His first thought wasn't to retreat …
Oxlade-Chamberlain adds another dimension to Liverpool midfield

Oxlade-Chamberlain adds another dimension to Liverpool midfield

The 4-1 dismantling of Norwich City or the Super Cup triumph over Chelsea should be the highlight of the two weeks old 2019/20 campaign but the biggest positive so far arrived in the 2-1 victory against Southampton.  No, it wasn’t Sadio Mane continuing his destructive 2019 with a goal and an assist. It wasn’t Roberto Firmino opening his account for the campaign just days after coming off the bench to change the game against Frank Lampard’s side in Istanbul.  It …
Sancho and Liverpool would be a match made in heaven

Sancho and Liverpool would be a match made in heaven

Borussia Dortmund have positioned themselves well to recoup an eye-watering fee when they part ways with Jadon Sancho next summer. The Bundesliga runners-up have rewarded the England international with a new, improved deal as recognition for his fine performances over the past 12 months.  The 19-year-old is now believed to be on £190,000-per-week, an absurd amount for a player plying their trade at the Westfalenstadion. It is believed the former Manchester City youngster turned down the advances of Manchester United …
Klopp Crusade For Marginal Gains Bodes Well For Future

Klopp Crusade For Marginal Gains Bodes Well For Future

Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp drafted in the services of a professional surfer to teach his players how to cope with stress ahead of the new football season. Sebastian Steudtner, a German surfer, was a guest of the club at their pre-season training camp in Evian last week to speak to the first-team squad. In a bid to help players cope with on pitch anxiety and stress, Steudtner headed a session for the squad in a swimming pool which focused on …
Man City 1 Liverpool 1 - Community Shield: Who Was Man Of The Match?

Man City 1 Liverpool 1 - Community Shield: Who Was Man Of The Match?

With the Community Shield – a match part-preseason friendly, part-trophy competition – you can construct any narrative you want. You can easily overreact to the result: If you win, it’s laying down a marker to start the season; if you lose, it shows you’re not ready to make a serious title challenge. You can also dump a big bucket of cold water on the results: If you win, it doesn’t mean much; if you lose, the side just hasn’t hit …

In goals, Alisson will continue his reintegration into the team after his summer break. The Brazilian number one committed a …
Expectations vs Reality: What does the season hold for Liverpool?

Expectations vs Reality: What does the season hold for Liverpool?

To say that last season was one that exceeded expectations would be unfair, but to look back at the levels of performance and consistency Liverpool achieved is remarkable. It felt like a title challenge was just around the corner under Klopp, but to do so well, amassing 97 points and losing just once and still missing out, was a huge achievement in itself. The levels of consistency that Liverpool showed were remarkable, and their efforts were rightly rewarded with silverware …
