Why Wijnaldum warrants a new Liverpool contract

Why Wijnaldum warrants a new Liverpool contract

All talk surrounding Liverpool at the moment surrounds when the season will resume and when Klopps men will finally get their hands in that nineteenth league title. This is big issue number one, of course, but under the surface, there are a number of interesting sub-plots simmering away on the back burner that make for quite interesting thinking. One of those issues surround one of Klopp's first signing and one of his most trusted lieutenants, Gini Wijnaldum. Since his arrival …
Kai Havertz vs Houssem Aouar: Who should Liverpool sign?

Kai Havertz vs Houssem Aouar: Who should Liverpool sign?

If reports are accurate, Liverpool plan to flex their financial muscle in the near future. Countless outlets have linked the Premier League leaders with Jadon Sancho while Kylian Mbappe remains a dream target for fans. The new link to Nike has only strengthened the belief that one of these two could soon be plying their trade at Anfield.  However, they aren’t the only players reportedly on the club’s wishlist. According to David Maddock of the Daily Mail, Liverpool are long-term …
The perfect back-up to Fabinho

The perfect back-up to Fabinho

It's difficult to impress when your side loses 6-2 over two matches but Genk midfielder Sander Berge certainly caught the eye against the European champions. According to reports, the Reds are interested in signing the 21-year-old. Though this isn't confirmed, talk is he has an £18million release clause in his deal. To Genk, that is a massive fee. To a Premier League club, however, that is nothing more than a drop in the ocean. Especially when Berge has many traits …
Grujic Granted Growth Grasp

Grujic Granted Growth Grasp

Loaned out Serbian midfielder Marko Grujic could be given an opportunity to stake a claim at Liverpool next season after the end of his second loan spell in the Bundesliga with Hertha Berlin. That is according to The Athletic's James Pearce, who writes that manager Jurgen Klopp has been impressed with the 23 year old's performances with Hertha. The former Cardiff City loanee made such an impression in the German capital in his first loan spell at the Olympiastadion, that …
Liverpool’s Long Goodbyes

Liverpool’s Long Goodbyes

One of these days summer will actually come. It may feel like we’ll be forever chasing City, one point behind, in a perpetual spring where the temperature never climbs above frigid. But the calendar is in-fact progressing. We know that we’re not stuck in a time-warp because Joe Gomez and Oxlade Chamberlain are apparently ready for action. Some morning soon you’ll actually look out the window and see the sun and it will be time to consider Liverpool’s summer signings, …
Liverpool FC and their treatment of youth players

Liverpool FC and their treatment of youth players

The way that Liverpool treat their young players is interesting to me. They seem to fall into two groups under Klopp, and it’s curious to see how Klopp treats, and has treated, both young players and the loan system that they fit into. Take for example, Trent Alexander-Arnold. His meteoric rise may have been accelerated because of an injury to Nathaniel Clyne before the start of the 17/18 season, but it was always clear that Jürgen Klopp intended for Trent …
Liverpool's Fringe Players - to Keep or Not to Keep?

Liverpool's Fringe Players - to Keep or Not to Keep?

For managers, major international tournaments mean disruption, with big players late to return after fulfilling their international commitments. But for fringe players, disruption means opportunity. Many of Liverpool’s stars, including each member of their revered front three, remain in Russia or are enjoying some well-earned time-off after an early exit. Jurgen Klopp has been forced, as a result, to dip into his reserve pool, granting a number players who have not figured in his first-team plans of late, be they …
Edwards' Golden Boy Image Depends On His Next Move

Edwards' Golden Boy Image Depends On His Next Move

Rewind a couple of weeks and Liverpool sporting director Michael Edwards was being suggested as the next Red to be knighted. Michael and Edward were the most common baby names on Merseyside. Local sculptors were providing sketches for bronze statues... of his laptop. The surprise signing of Brazilian midfielder, Fabinho, raised enthusiasm for the transfer window and the season to come to levels that haven’t been seen on Merseyside for a generation. The move was a brilliant one on the …
Emre Can - A Player With Potential

Emre Can - A Player With Potential

Potential is a funny word. It’s a word that can often be used as a backhanded compliment or an excuse for poor performance – well he’s got potential. It can be a word that ignites the feeling of general excitement – he’s got potential. It can be a word to slot in when you’re genuinely not sure on your judgement of someone – he’s got potential. Now potential seems to be tied to a large extent with age, which is …
