Gini Wijnaldum's legacy at Liverpool

Gini Wijnaldum's legacy at Liverpool

Gini Wijnaldum and Sadio Mane kickstarted the Jurgen Klopp era at Liverpool. They were the two big signings during the German’s first summer at Anfield.  Both played a significant part in getting the club into the top four during the 2016/17 campaign. The pair had a key role in the Reds reaching the 2017/18 Champions League final. They repeated the feat the year after, with Liverpool claiming their sixth European Cup in Madrid. A year later, the duo helped the …
Mane - Regression or Revival?

Mane - Regression or Revival?

After arriving from Southampton in Jurgen Klopp’s first summer, it was rumoured that Sadio Mane was in fact the Mario Gotze alternative. Gotze was a prodigy whilst playing under Klopp at Borussia Dortmund, and the chance to reunite seemed logical. Sadio Mane, a flying winger and sometimes front man had a sensational yet inconsistent side to him, and it was feared that the Senegalese front man was a risk. A deal north of 30m was agreed, and Sadio Mane became …
New Mohamed Salah Contract Needs To Be Liverpool's #1 Priority

New Mohamed Salah Contract Needs To Be Liverpool's #1 Priority

Mohamed Salah’s future at Liverpool has been speculated about frequently over the course of the last few months.  After Salah granted an interview to Spanish newspaper AS in December in which he didn’t immediately dismiss the prospect of one day playing for Real Madrid or Barcelona, many fans wondered whether the Egyptian was trying to engineer a move away from Anfield.  Others, however, including the Athletic’s Simon Hughes, are of the opinion that the Reds’ number 11 is keen to …
Liverpool Need To Think Big To Replace Divock Origi

Liverpool Need To Think Big To Replace Divock Origi

By all accounts, Divock Origi's time at Liverpool will come to an end in this summer's transfer window. After a brilliant end to the 2018/2019 season, where the Belgian had a telling hand in both the Reds qualifying for -- with two goals in the semi-final against Barcelona -- and winning -- the forward's goal put the finishing touches in the 2-0 victory over Spurs in the showpiece -- the Champions League, the 26-year-old has failed to recapture that form …
Much Maligned Firmino Missed In UnIntense Liverpool Loss

Much Maligned Firmino Missed In UnIntense Liverpool Loss

Let's face it, Roberto Firmino -- at least in front of goal -- has regressed as a player over the course of the last two seasons. From a record high 0f 15 Premier League goals in the 2017/2018 season, the Brazilian's numbers have steadily dropped and he finds himself on eight league goals this season, the same figure he registered last term. Of course, anyone familiar with the Brazilian internationals game knows that his on-field role is about much more …

Liverpool Fall To Record Fifth Home Defeat In A Row in Chelsea Loss

Liverpool Fall To Record Fifth Home Defeat In A Row in Chelsea Loss

Liverpool fell to club-record fifth consecutive Premier League home defeat with a 1-0 loss to Chelsea at Anfield. Mason Mount's first-half goal separated the teams in a result that could well prove a hammer blow to the Reds' Champions League qualification prospects. Controversy ensued when Jurgen Klopp replaced Mohamed Salah late on, despite the Egyptian looking like the host's best chance of manufacturing a goal, with Sadio Mane and Roberto Firmino -- both of whose performances were well below their …
Mohamed Salah: Liverpool's Underestimated Leader

Mohamed Salah: Liverpool's Underestimated Leader

Leadership comes in many forms. When you mention the word in the context of Liverpool, several names come to mind. Jordan Henderson, James Milner, and Virgil van Dijk -- three of the four members of the first team's leadership group, along with Georginio Wijnaldum -- are all associated with being leaders, whether that's through their vocal presence or by virtue of their respect-commanding aura. A name you seldom hear mentioned when it comes to leaders in the Reds' squad is …
Laboured Liverpool Fall To Anfield Defeat To Everton

Laboured Liverpool Fall To Anfield Defeat To Everton

Liverpool fell to their first Anfield Merseyside derby league defeat to Everton since 1999 after a 2-0 reversal against their neighbours. The loss means the defending champions have now lost four home league games on the spin. Goals from Richarlison and Gylfi Sigurðsson condemned the Reds to defeat after an insipid, lifeless performance from the hosts. Injuries and VAR controversy -- the two banes of Liverpool's season -- reared their ugly heads again with Jordan Henderson being forced off with …
Thiago Influence Could Help Liverpool Evolve From False 9 Tactics

Thiago Influence Could Help Liverpool Evolve From False 9 Tactics

Roberto Firmino was back to his best in Liverpool's recent 3-1 win away to Spurs. The Brazilian opened the scoring on the cusp of half time and showed the movement, touch, and sublime link play of old as the Reds scored their first league goals in over a month. The number 9's goal, a tap in after his intelligent delayed run saw him arrive in the six-yard box in time to tap in Sadio Mane's left-footed cross, was his sixth …
