Four From Four - Business as Usual for Liverpool

Four From Four - Business as Usual for Liverpool

We are four games into the Premier League season, so naturally, it’s time for an irritating international break. International breaks, of course, have their benefits: being able to focus on the Ashes, the slight increase in quality in David Squires’ cartoons, managing to go a whole weekend without having some sort of stress-induced heart attack, and for those of us that actually enjoy it, the prospect of seeing your national team play. There are some benefits for Liverpool and its …
Trouble in paradise: Two scandals by Liverpool standards

Trouble in paradise: Two scandals by Liverpool standards

We've reached the first international break, and so it's time to reflect on the first action of the season. The Reds have rattled off four Premier League wins from four and added another continental crown to their cabinet, but there's also been a rare dose of drama. First, we had the acrimonious departure of Anfield star-in-waiting Bobby Duncan, and then came Sadio Mane's outburst, directed at Mohamed Salah, after being substituted at Burnley. So let's take some time to discuss …
Why Liverpool should sign Emre Can

Why Liverpool should sign Emre Can

The professional way in which Emre Can left Liverpool may mean the door is ajar for him to return to Merseyside. There have been no links, no rumours, but with the Germany international not included in Juventus’ Champions League squad, the writing appears to be on the wall for his career there.  Maurizio Sarri reportedly tried to sell him in the final weeks of the window. Having failed to shift other midfielders, the former Chelsea man tried to lighten the …
Observations as the Liverpool Escape From St. Mary’s with a Win

Observations as the Liverpool Escape From St. Mary’s with a Win

Liverpool stayed perfect on the young season with a wild and topsy-turvy 2-1 win over the Saints. Liverpool were equal parts dominant and diabolical as they were lucky to go into the break ahead and then managed to make things difficult at the end despite completely controlling most of the 2nd half. After some brief positive moments early, Liverpool fell under siege to a dogged Southampton side, especially after Milner went off for several minutes with an open cut above …
The lack of full back cover at Liverpool is an uncalculated risk

The lack of full back cover at Liverpool is an uncalculated risk

Liverpool Football Club currently has quite possibly the best full-back pair in the world. Last season was record-breaking for both Trent-Alexander Arnold and Andrew Robertson. Shattering the assists records, while covering the flanks of the best defence in the league. Oh, and they also won the European Cup in one of the most memorable campaigns in recent history. It doesn't get better than that. We are a week away from the first league game of 2019/2020 and to the surprise …
Clyne Injury To Present Midfield Chances

Clyne Injury To Present Midfield Chances

Nathaniel Clyne will miss the rest of 2019 after picking up an injury in Liverpool's pre-season tour of the United States. The former Southampton right back, 28, sustained a knee ligament injury in the European Champions' 3-2 friendly defeat to Borussia Dortmund. It was later revealed that Clyne, who has a year remaining on his Anfield deal, will miss at least six months of action and has departed the Reds' tour to undergo treatment in England. The severity of the …
Heat Stroke In The USA For Liverpool

Heat Stroke In The USA For Liverpool

A year ago, Liverpool put a finishing touch to their USA summer tour by dispatching bitter rivals Manchester United in front of a crowd of about 100,000 on a sunny, hot afternoon. Despite coming off a tough loss to Real Madrid in the Champions League Final, the Reds were in fine form against United and put on a show for the adoring fans, who put in their own fine performance being in full voice throughout the match. One year later, …
Why taking Coutinho back makes a lot of sense

Why taking Coutinho back makes a lot of sense

It's the transfer rumour that just won't go away. The will he, won't he. The shall we, shan't we. Does the heart rule the head or is it the other way around. The summer saga (for want of a better word) for Liverpool fans this summer is whether their fallen hero, Philippe Coutinho, will make a dramatic return to Anfield after what has proven to be an ill-fated 18 months at Barcelona. After raking in the capital as a result …
How Milner Continues to be Liverpool's Ultimate Role Model

How Milner Continues to be Liverpool's Ultimate Role Model

Who else remembers James Milner's arrival at Liverpool four summers ago? It's easy to forget it, in truth. When Brendan Rodgers took him to Anfield on a free transfer ahead of the 2015/16 season, it wasn't a signing that felt game-changing, exciting or fashionable. At 29, there was an argument that the midfielder's best days were behind him, following a stint at Man City in which he proved to be an invaluable utility man. Liverpool signing him almost epitomised that …
Why another loan makes sense for Marko Grujic

Why another loan makes sense for Marko Grujic

When you’re in the 22-24-year age bracket as a footballer, you come to a crossroads. No longer a youth player able to bide your time and develop at a steady pace, there’s a growing awareness that the clock is ticking - you either cut it or you don’t. Where consecutive loan spells would usually spell trouble for such players - see Ryan Kent and Harry Wilson, both of whom face uncertain futures at Anfield with a reduced hope of ultimately …
