Time for Liverpool FC To Show Their Depth

Time for Liverpool FC To Show Their Depth

Liverpool have a deeper squad than they have in previous years. This is not a fact that I’m going to dispute, although I’d definitely make (and will make) some arguments that that depth isn’t as deep as maybe it’s being made out in some areas, and certainly hasn’t drastically improved over the summer. Nevertheless, Klopp has slowly been building a deep and impressive squad that the four acquisitions in the summer have moved relatively close to being a very top …
Adios, Mi Amigo - Almost Time To Say Goodbye to Alberto Moreno

Adios, Mi Amigo - Almost Time To Say Goodbye to Alberto Moreno

The international break is typically a time for everyone to take a break and recharge the batteries during a long season. The most you can usually hope for during the week off is having all your players return healthy (which rarely happens for Liverpool) and avoiding any bad news. Yet, a piece of Liverpool transfer news dropped on Monday when it was reported that Alberto Moreno would not be getting a new contract with Liverpool and would be allowed to …
Chelsea Cup Defeat Highlights How Far Liverpool Have Come

Chelsea Cup Defeat Highlights How Far Liverpool Have Come

That winning run wasn't going to last forever, was it? Any Liverpool defeat generally has to be considered disappointing - although some under Roy Hodgson felt like a blessing in disguise - and Wednesday's League Cup loss to Chelsea did sting a little, especially given the nature of it. In the grand scheme of things, it is not a result that is going to derail the Reds' season, however, and it was always clear that the League Cup was very …

Is Andy Robertson Europe's Most In-Form Left-Back?

Is Andy Robertson Europe's Most In-Form Left-Back?

Trace your mind back about 14 months and a huge amount of trepidation surrounded Liverpool's acquisition of Andy Robertson. Alberto Moreno's hit-and-miss form had called for an upgrade at left-back, with plenty of exotic-sounding names across Europe touted as ideal replacements, such as the forever Liverpool-linked Ricardo Rodriguez. Instead, Jurgen Klopp opted to sign a scrawny-looking 23-year-old Scottish lad from Hull City, who had just been relegated to the Championship. It was understandable why his arrival didn't garner resounding positivity, …
Integrating Fabinho and the Need for Patience

Integrating Fabinho and the Need for Patience

Patience isn’t a word that gets heeded much in the modern era of football. Instant gratification has been normalised and expected, and signings are often cast aside as “flops” in as short a space as six months. And that’s fine because some signings don’t work. But, if one casts their mind back to the final season of Brendan Rodgers’ tenure, you’ll notice that Liverpool’s current number nine was far from the maniacal presser and vital fulcrum that he would become …
Andy Robertson - Best Left-Back in the Premier League

Andy Robertson - Best Left-Back in the Premier League

I must confess that I was amongst those potentially frustrated when Liverpool decided not to spend big money on a left-back last summer, instead plumping for Hull’s Andy Robertson. However, once I did some digging on Robbo, as I have several friends who support Hull, the overwhelming response was that it was a very positive signing and one who would be good value for money. Nevertheless, I think it’s fair to say that Robertson has, pound for pound, probably been …
Joe Gomez and the Need for Patience

Joe Gomez and the Need for Patience

On Sunday, Joe Gomez made his long-awaited Premier League debut at centre back for Liverpool. Signed from Charlton back in 2015 with an eye to a future as a Liverpool centre-back, Gomez has so far followed the well-trodden path for youthful centre back prospects at Anfield - playing at fullback. This path has often been a problematic one, with Jamie Carragher the only player I can think of who has successfully carved out a first-team spot at centre back after …
A Back Four Ready to Compete? - Liverpool FC Squad Analysis

A Back Four Ready to Compete? - Liverpool FC Squad Analysis

Liverpool kicked off the season with a delightful 4-0 win on Sunday, conceding only two shots on target and rarely looking in trouble. The back four was among the youngest seen in recent memory during a Premier League game and played together like a group of players ready to kick on this year. Virgil van Dijk anchored a defence with an average age under 23 years old, continuing to prove himself the most gifted leader the defence has seen since …
Liverpool FC Squad Analysis: The Depth Chart

Liverpool FC Squad Analysis: The Depth Chart

There are two weeks to go until the summer transfer window slams shut, locks and closes its shutters. Jurgen Klopp has apparently announced there will be no more signings with his comments last week - "We have everything we need for the next season because I don’t think we will do anything more, I’m pretty sure of that." Having written this piece for AI for the past two summers, this year I'm excited to bring you the Depth chart for …
