How should Liverpool line-up in attack this season?

How should Liverpool line-up in attack this season?

Neil Jones got a lot of Liverpool fans talking recently when he wrote that 'next summer is already being talked up as a big one by sources close to the club'. I chose, based on past experience, not to read into that. Instead, it was another line in his piece that stood out to me. "Wonderful as they are, this will be the fifth season that those three [Mohamed Salah, Roberto Firmino and Sadio Mane, of course] have made up …

Raphinha & The Need For More Options

Time for a central role for Mohamed Salah?

Time for a central role for Mohamed Salah?

Liverpool are back, looking healthy and refreshed after a much-needed post-season break. The 2020/21 campaign was an intense one for the Reds, both mentally and physically, and both Jurgen Klopp and his players looked drained by the time they sealed Champions League football back in May. If one player carried this team more than anyone in 2020/21 it was Salah, who enjoyed another outstanding season while others around him struggled. Liverpool's No.11 scored 31 goals in all competitions, standing tall …
What should Liverpool do with Divock Origi?

What should Liverpool do with Divock Origi?

I won’t hear a bad word said against Divock Origi, but the club need to sell him this summer.  He’s a cult hero for what he did during the 2018/19 campaign and there’s absolutely no disputing that. It is still surreal to think back to that season and his involvement in it. He was chucked on late against Everton with Liverpool looking to sneak a win and he was in the right place to nod home after Jordan Pickford’s error. …
Where does Salah rank among the all-time Liverpool greats?

Where does Salah rank among the all-time Liverpool greats?

Even in a season where Liverpool capitulated at times, Mo Salah was still largely exceptional. Granted, there were occasions when the Reds' No.11 wasn't at his stellar best, but he was comfortably his side's Player of the Year and helped inspire them to an unlikely third-place finish. While Sadio Mane and Roberto Firmino floundered, Salah scored 31 goals in all competitions, and without him, it is hard to imagine Liverpool's campaign being anything other than a disaster. It is now …
Michael Edwards - The Regeneration

Michael Edwards - The Regeneration

For years, the director of football was a nuisance, an obstacle and a hinderance to most managers throughout the Premier League. The mere thought that any old school manager would need either help, guidance or another body to aid the club football was sneered upon, and often dismissed. FSG have had their failings, that is not in doubt , yet it is the overall process from their tenure that should be applauded. They have learned, progressed, installed a working structure …
Divock Origi: One of the most curious LFC careers

Divock Origi: One of the most curious LFC careers

Most Liverpool careers are easy to define. Some are legendary figures who reach world-class levels for the Reds, some are great servants who rarely let the team down and others are disaster areas, to name just a few examples. It is often simple to fit an individual into a certain category, using their back catalogue of performances as a perfect way to gauge them, but then there's someone like Divock Origi. It looks highly likely that the Belgian will move …
Why might Liverpool want Raphinha

Why might Liverpool want Raphinha

There’s been a lot of talk recently linking Liverpool with a move for Raphinha. Italian journalist Gianluigi Longari recently claimed the Reds were ‘leading the race’ ahead of Manchester United and Manchester City.  A lot of people have taken that with a pinch of salt. Why wouldn’t you? After all, why would an Italian journalist have inside information on a Brazilian potentially moving from one Premier League club to another?  However, Longari was one of the first to tweet about …
Liverpool Finish Season Third After Palace Win

Liverpool Finish Season Third After Palace Win

Liverpool finished the Premier League season in third place after a 2-0 win over Crystal Palace at Anfield. The Reds knew that they needed a win to secure Champions League qualification over one of Chelsea or Tottenham and they duly obliged thanks to a brace of goals from Sadio Mane and a dominant performance. For the home team to finish third, just five points off second, in a season where they were decimated by injuries and plagued by misfortune, is …
Late Alisson Winner Keeps Liverpool's Champions League Hopes Alive

Late Alisson Winner Keeps Liverpool's Champions League Hopes Alive

A late Alisson Becker winner secured Liverpool a last gasp 2-1 win against West Bromwich Albion that kept their Champions League qualification hopes alive. Drawing 1-1 against a deep-sitting home team, the Reds won a corner in the fourth minute of the allotted extra time. Trent Alexander Arnold's corner was then met powerfully by the head of the Brazilian and the ball surged past Sam Johnstone for a goal that could be huge in the years to come. West Brom …
