A New Recruitment Strategy

A New Recruitment Strategy

As Liverpool close in on another painful transfer window, Michael Edwards must soon decide how he is to engage in what could be his final dealings as Liverpool’s Sporting Director. Since FSG installed Michael Edwards into his role, he has had a near faultless record in being able to recruit undervalued players, thus allowing Jürgen Klopp to turn such players into bonafide superstars. The ability to engineer certain deals was always based upon club sales, and given the market is …
The FSG Dilemma

The FSG Dilemma

With the window now shut, it’s a worrying and continuing issue that has seen Liverpool fall behind their immediate rivals in the summer's recruitment. With vast sums being spent by both Manchester clubs, Tottenham & Chelsea, it’s now becoming a worry to see a club at the level of Liverpool seemingly happy to sit on their hands. When Ibrahima Konate arrived early in the summer, it gave the fanbase false hope of what was to come. With other areas of …
Potential Ibrahima Konate Purchase Shows Liverpool's Pulling Power

Potential Ibrahima Konate Purchase Shows Liverpool's Pulling Power

Liverpool will trigger Red Bull Leipzig defender Ibrahima Konate's €40M release clause before signing the Frenchman in the summer, according to reports from The Athletic. The 22-year-old centre half is one of Europe's foremost young central defenders and any move for the 6'4" stopper will represent a coup for the Reds, even if Konate has had his fair share of injuries in the recent past. Should the transfer come to fruition -- and, according to the report in the Athletic, …
Liverpool signing Ben Davies appears well-suited to “quarterback” role

Liverpool signing Ben Davies appears well-suited to “quarterback” role

After days of nothingness mainly made up of endless scrolling through Liverpool Twitter (presumably), Michael Edwards was evidently moved enough by fans’ pleas to leap into action with deadline day looming. With fears the team’s season was slipping further away with every new injury at the back and its knock-on effects through the rest of the team, Liverpool have signed Preston North End defender Ben Davies as part of their attempts to fill their once-gaping void at the centre-back position.  …
Exciting Jota looks the perfect fit for Liverpool

Exciting Jota looks the perfect fit for Liverpool

For so long, Liverpool have been crying out for top class quality behind Mohamed Salah, Sadio Mane and Roberto Firmino. The Reds' front-three have been the best attacking unit in world football over the past three years, but if one of them is missing, their absence is felt hugely. Taking out one of the trio has instantly made Liverpool a far less daunting proposition, with those in reserve not cutting the mustard, whether it be Xherdan Shaqiri or Divock Origi, …
Will Salah or Mane make way for Sancho next summer?

Will Salah or Mane make way for Sancho next summer?

There was a time when everything Man United did was superior to Liverpool:  winning more trophies, having a better manager and signing world-class players. Thankfully, those days are gone. United's latest humiliation at the hands of Tottenham was great to see - until the Reds lost 7-2 a few hours later, at least - and they continue to show no sign of coming close to repeating their past glories. Their woeful attempt to sign Jadon Sancho from Borussia Dortmund is …
Should Liverpool be interested in Diego Carlos?

Should Liverpool be interested in Diego Carlos?

Liverpool were on pace to break the record for most points in a single Premier League campaign before football was paused. Remarkably, the Reds had won 93% of their matches in the English top-flight this term. For a bit of context, the Manchester City centurions, regarded by many to be one of the best sides ever, won 84% of their games.  It highlights just how incredible this Liverpool side is. Upgrading any area isn’t easy but with football perpetually evolving, …
Odsonne Edouard: Liverpool's Potential Back Up Forward

Odsonne Edouard: Liverpool's Potential Back Up Forward

Liverpool's front three, Mohamed Salah, Roberto Firmino and Sadio Mane, are world renowned for their quality and on field compatibility. Behind them in the Reds' pecking order are Xherdan Shaqiri and Divock Origi, both of whom played their roles -- with the Belgian especially prominent in the march to Madrid -- in the club's sixth European Cup triumph last June. However, due to injury and inconsistency of performance when selected, neither Shaqiri nor Origi have truly grasped their chances and …
Liverpool should return to sign La Liga starlet

Liverpool should return to sign La Liga starlet

In football, rejection often closes that particular chapter. Clubs won't continue to their pursuit if a player has made it clear they aren't keen on the move. Sometimes it's to do with pride. Other times it's because the world of football moves fast and teams can't wait around on the off chance a mind is changed. Liverpool, however, are one of the few teams who seem to leave the door slightly ajar if a move doesn't materialise first-time around. Countless …
Do Liverpool Know How to be Frontrunners?

Do Liverpool Know How to be Frontrunners?

If you could have one movie character share Michael Edwards’ air-conditioning and have a chat across his desk, who would it be? I’ll pause for a moment while you ponder the possibilities. The right answer is, Ben Affleck. No, not Batman. Edwards doesn’t need to be roughed up just yet. Maybe A.J. from Armageddon could have a heart to heart with our sporting director and let him know just how important it is for us that he makes a signing, …
