Joe Gomez feels Liverpool squad has a greater connection now after isolation of recent months

Liverpool defender Joe Gomez believes there is a stronger connection among the first-team squad after their return to Melwood last week. Players had been training and maintaining fitness levels in isolation with their families since March. However, Gomez feels that unavoidable separation has led to better relations among the tight-knit unit since they met back up. Speaking to Liverpoolfc.com, Gomez said:
"... we’ve had to have communication in a different way; it’s not been the standard come in and see …

"Perfect, absolutely perfect" - Klopp delights in Reds' return to Melwood

Jürgen Klopp was in a hugely upbeat mood yesterday as his Liverpool first-team squad returned to training at Melwood while adhering to Covid-19 government guidelines. The Reds' backroom staff had quite the task on their hands, as does every other Premier League club this week. Training had to be organised within smaller groups while following social distancing protocol. It's hoped that Premier League action will return in mid-June as the aim is to see out the 2019/20 campaign to its …
Melwood Partially Reopens to Allow Liverpool to Train While Practicing Social Distancing

Melwood Partially Reopens to Allow Liverpool to Train While Practicing Social Distancing

The rest of the matches of this year’s English Premier League was put into a halt since March 13 due to the threat that the 2019 coronavirus carries. Since then, the matches and training have all been cancelled, and everyone didn’t have a solid idea as to when it will all resume. The football fanatics and even the players and everyone else involved in the league have surely been sad about what happened, but at the same time, it’s also …
Rhian Brewster's breakthrough awaits

Rhian Brewster's breakthrough awaits

Rhian Brewster has yet to make a senior appearance for Liverpool, but he is poised to assume an important role in a Champions League-winning squad. On his return to Melwood on Saturday, Jurgen Klopp stressed that the young forward was a key part of his plans for the upcoming campaign. It is an arrival which has been teased for years, but at last it is imminent. One of the reasons Klopp chose not to recruit another striking option last summer, …
Selecting the perfect 2019/20 Liverpool squad

Selecting the perfect 2019/20 Liverpool squad

After a tiring but ultimately thrilling season, Liverpool are almost ready to go again. A number of players will return to Melwood for pre-season training next week, as preparations for another huge campaign begin for Jurgen Klopp and his staff. It's been a relatively silent summer on the transfer front so far, barring the addition of exciting centre-back Sepp van den Berg, but a few more incomings will surely arrive in the coming weeks, despite what some are reporting. Several …

Red Rant: We Don't Need No VVD

I’m all for the unsubstantiated transfer rumour. Football itself and certainly Twitter wouldn’t be the same without them. The incremental steps, when Liverpool is rumoured to be monitoring a player, continuing to monitor, then comes the inquiring, then considering a bid, then surprise competition comes in from a rival club, and on and on… it’s all part of the romance, right? But for clubs at the level of Liverpool the rule has to be that the romance period can only …
Trent Alexander-Arnold - Local Hero

Trent Alexander-Arnold - Local Hero

I know it shouldn’t be important, but it is. I know it should just be about the team, but this isn’t. I know that it shouldn’t matter who scores for Liverpool, but on this occasion it means the world. When Trent Alexander-Arnold wheeled away in celebration in Germany this week, and tried gamely to calm his mind after his magnificent achievement, he knew that any attempt at casualness and insouciance would be an act of folly. He had just done …
Transfer Time: A Brief Cautionary Tale

Transfer Time: A Brief Cautionary Tale

It's really far more than anyone should be expected to bear, you know. There is no way to manoeuvre the minefield that is transfer speculation and retain one's mental equilibrium. I like to think I'm a comparatively calm man, having had my stoicism tested by the slings and arrows over the years, but there's something about the unique cocktail of Liverpool's uncertain fate, the huge investment we have all placed in the importance of Champions League football and the attendant …

Private Jets, Insomnia And Donuts - A Normal Week At Anfield

Here is the latest in a sequence of ways in which writing a daily football column knocks your perspective into a cocked hat. Number 73: Comparing your reality to that of Roberto Firmino. Having missed a day from both my jobs for what the Twitter kids call "reasons," your columnist was left incapacitated enough that he was unable to drive his own beloved mode of transportation to work this morning. It seems as though my employers were anxious to avoid being …
Can Klopp And Liverpool Stay Cool?

Can Klopp And Liverpool Stay Cool?

You know when you've arranged with family or friends that, owing to financial circumstances, you are definitely NOT doing the present thing this Christmas/birthday/whatever? And you know the way that seems like absolutely the correct call at the time and you're definitely okay with it? And do you also know that pang of ludicrous and illogical disappointment when the day arrives and you are indeed present-free? That is very much the feeling that gnawed at Latest News on the drive to work …
