Leandro Paredes - The Midfielder Liverpool Lack?

Leandro Paredes - The Midfielder Liverpool Lack?

Jurgen Klopp has refused to rule out any incomings between now and the end of the transfer window. There's still hope within the fan base that the Reds will bring in a left-back to displace/challenge Alberto Moreno as well as a controlling/tempo setting midfielder to turn a 7/10 window into a potential 9/10 window. The latter seems less likely given Liverpool are pretty stocked when it comes to midfielders. Depending on what formation Klopp decides to go with will see …
Good or bad business by Liverpool this summer?

Good or bad business by Liverpool this summer?

Players In Joel Matip and Marko Grujic arrived this summer, but both deals were agreed back in January, with Matip a free transfer following his contract at Schalke 04 expiring and Grujic staying at Red Star Belgrade on loan. Grujic immediately captures your …
Observations from Pre-Season so far

Observations from Pre-Season so far

Liverpool's pre-season is well under way now and after four consecutive clean sheets to go alongside four straight wins the mood around the squad seems buoyant. Reds boss Jurgen Klopp has used these matches to try out different formations, tweaked line-ups and contrasting tactics. After the emphatic 5-0 win against Fleetwood Town he said results aren't important and it's about familiarising the team with how he wants them to play in the new season. Now, normally you take everything from …
Premier League Proven isn't always a negative

Premier League Proven isn't always a negative

The Transfer Window has been officially open for nearly a month now and Liverpool's two biggest signings have been players from within the Premier League. Both Sadio Mane and Gini Wijnaldum arrived at Anfield for a combined £55 Million. Most Reds fans must have a strong feeling of deja-vu about such deals. Since Fenway Sports Group bought the club Liverpool have spent over £200 Million on Premier League proven players with varied success. Despite the questionable success of this tactic …
Farewell to Liverpool's Lesser Bearded Dragon - Joe Allen

Farewell to Liverpool's Lesser Bearded Dragon - Joe Allen

It’s never truly worked out for Joe Allen at Liverpool, has it? Hailed as the man to translate Brendan Rodgers’ ‘Death by Football’ philosophy onto the pitch, the wee man battled a shoulder injury throughout his first campaign with the club and has struggled to nail down a first-team spot ever since. But then came the beard. Allen’s cult status with the Reds took a meteoric rise when the first pictures emerged of the previously baby-faced midfielder sporting stubble. It …
Just how Important to the balance of the team is Emre Can?

Just how Important to the balance of the team is Emre Can?

Before the transfer window even opened Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp implied he wanted the bulk of incoming players to be signed before the club flew out to America for their tour. So far the Reds have brought in Loris Karius, Joel Matip, Marko Grujic (although he was signed in January), Sadio Mane Ragnar Klavan and Gini Wijnaldum has joined up with the squad now too. Although some supporters view these dealings as underwhelming given the earlier links to a certain …
James Milner must prove doubters wrong again next season

James Milner must prove doubters wrong again next season

When Mamadou Sakho claimed Liverpool’s number 3 squad number on Monday morning, curious Liverpool fans glancing down the squad list were perhaps most disappointed when reminded about the incumbent of one shirt in particular – James Milner and the number 7. The previous holder of that shirt had been the magical Luis Suarez, one of very few worthy successors to the shirt of the king of the kop, Kenny Dalglish, over 25 years ago. James Milner, boring, versatile, and honest James Milner, does …
Why the 2016-17 Pre-Season Will be Different

Why the 2016-17 Pre-Season Will be Different

Another season. Another promised new dawn. Another set of big hopes and expectations from Liverpool for the fans. Starting on Saturday, Liverpool will commence their pre-season training as they begin preparations for the 2016-17 season. And as Jürgen Klopp promised, this will be a pre-season unlike any that the players have seen previously in their careers. Klopp has long stressed on the importance of pre-season, and how the work in this month and a half would determine a lot of …
Liverpool's Transfer Committee Shows Patience is Necessary

Liverpool's Transfer Committee Shows Patience is Necessary

Liverpool have this reputation in the transfer market for being grossly negligent in their recruitment of players. Make no bones about it, Liverpool have spent recklessly in the past and signed some average players for extortionate fees. There's no denying that and there's no escaping it. As supporters of the club it's our cross to bear. Fans of other clubs taunt us with the fees we've splurged on players like Andy Carroll, Dejan Lovren, Adam Lallana, Lazar Markovic and Christian …
Mixing It Up - Klopp's coaching and Liverpool's Cash

Mixing It Up - Klopp's coaching and Liverpool's Cash

The fume has always been a constant feature of LFC’s transfer window in the Twitter era. Failing to land a target and LFC targeting underwhelming players always set LFC’s” twittersphere” ablaze for days. Also a constant feature is the penchant of journalists and agents to link every man who calls football his profession to a transfer to Liverpool. One change in this summer’s transfer window is the concept of “a perfect Klopp” player. Being linked with an underwhelming name, for …
