Are Formations that Important to Klopp?

Are Formations that Important to Klopp?

The picture below was posted on Social Media recently. It's of Jurgen Klopp holding a tactics board while talking to the squad during preseason. It's a picture that has generated a lot of debate on Twitter with fans talking about how the team lined up on the board. Depending on how you view it will have an impact on what formation you see. If you work under the assumption that Klopp is showing it to the players then it's a …
Liverpool Supporters: Price Tag Over Talent

Liverpool Supporters: Price Tag Over Talent

Summer transfer window. It’s that time of the year when Liverpool fans are in a state of hysteria. In fact, throughout the calendar year, Liverpool Football Club are constantly linked to players probably more than any other football club. LFC has been an easy target for ITKs, agents, and small media outlets. But just how easy is it for them to manage traffic and clicks? Sam McGuire has brilliantly focused on that topic here. Fans from almost every football club …
A Vital Attribute in a Liverpool Signing

A Vital Attribute in a Liverpool Signing

Just as the season came to a close, the floodgates open for everyone in social media – from journalists with real info, to journalists who make up info, to ITK’s seeking for acknowledgement – all looking for fame and recognition by football clubs’ respective fan base. Transfer-mania begins when you see every player under the sun being linked with your club and with Liverpool falling victim to the ‘2+2=5’ transfer algorithm; they are hardly shaded from the limelight. This may …
Sadio Mane at RB Salzburg: A Reflection of the Future?

Sadio Mane at RB Salzburg: A Reflection of the Future?

Liverpool have signed Sadio Mane this week, continuing the trend of shopping on the South Coast. The reported fee has ranged between 30 million pounds to 36 million pounds depending on whom you would want to believe. It is a valid question whether the question is of great significance in that if you have stumped up 30 million, 2 or 4 million more should not be the point of focus. What should be the point of focus is the role …
Divock Origi | Time to Shine

Divock Origi | Time to Shine

The transfer period is a funny and fickle time; it’s now become almost bigger than league games, where fans spend all summer concentrating on refreshing twitter feeds and reading gossip columns. There are constant debates about whomever signs the biggest and best players must be the best team, and opposition fans ridicule the teams that have not been active. With the excitement (or anger) surrounding the new addition of Sadio Mane, the fans have been talking about him, his inclusion …
Sadio Mane: Already Labelled

Sadio Mane: Already Labelled

Okay. I’ve almost succumbed to the fact that we’re going in for another Southampton player in Sadio Mane. Which would make him the fifth player Liverpool has signed from the south west club in 3 years, costing us another hefty £30m, which would coincidentally make him Liverpool Football Club’s third most expensive signing, with Roberto Firmino moving down the billboard, leaving Christian Benteke and Andy Carroll standing firm in top spot. Seems as if we should just buy shares at Southampton …
Trust Klopp to Sign the Right Players

Trust Klopp to Sign the Right Players

We're all bad liars. No matter how much we say "we trust Klopp" as things stand we don't, not wholeheartedly anyway, and repeating it won't make it any more truthful. The sad thing is it's through no fault of his own. The enigmatic German hasn't even had a summer transfer window in charge of Liverpool yet but the scars from previous regimes are too ugly to ignore. Upon his arrival, Klopp talked about turning doubters into believers and for the …
Being Insanely Sane In This Transfer Window

Being Insanely Sane In This Transfer Window

Ever since the arrival of Loris Karius, Liverpool social media has been The Joker, a narcissistic person who just strives on causing pain and fear into everyone. For a month now, Liverpool Football Club has transformed itself into a mime that just went dark, and not one person has a clue on which player we’re after. You name him, we’re linked with him. I mean, even with the low amount of followers I have, I could probably start mass hysteria …
Sadio Mane - The Dembele Alternative?

Sadio Mane - The Dembele Alternative?

Paul Joyce sent Twitter into a bit of a meltdown with the news that Liverpool were looking at £25 million Southampton attacker Sadio Mane as an alternative to Mario Gotze. Reports surfaced earlier this week about how the German looked set to join Liverpool, even agreeing personal terms, before an amazing u turn saw him sack his long term agent and imply his future was with Bayern. Initially many people were sceptical of the link. £25 million for yet another …
