Bring Me Ivan Toney

Bring Me Ivan Toney

Now and again an opposing side can cause such a stir it has the manager (on the receiving end) look deeply into said team, and more importantly their players. I wrote about the RB Salzburg tie from a few years back and how the intelligence, elegance and work rate of a certain Takumi Minamino, prompted Liverpool to make move for the gifted attacker. Whereas this deal hasn’t worked out from a first team point of view, the low fee paid …
The Liverpool Players In Their Final Days

The Liverpool Players In Their Final Days

The final few embers of the Brendan Rodgers regime still remain, with Jordan Henderson, James Milner, Joe Gomez and Divock Origi now rotation pieces of varying quality, within Jürgen Klopp’s squad. As part of any management era, there is always incoming failures that have a shelf life. Under the Brendan stewardship, the hits were few, and the misses often spectacular. This past summer saw a few more players moved on, in what is commonly a summer of attempting to release …
Klopp’s Campaign Management

Klopp’s Campaign Management

Stubbornness, single mindedness, arrogance and an absolute inability to adjust one's methods, can be the downfall of even the best managers in modern football. In recent years we have seen the likes of Arsene Wenger and Jose Mourinho, unable to adapt to the modern needs of Premier League football, with both departing the division at relative low points. The signs are often evident, the fall off from brilliance usually gradual, but the reason for the decline always consistent. Football changes, …

Liverpool's Divock Origi conundrum

Liverpool's Divock Origi conundrum

The Divock Origi situation is interesting.  Liverpool are believed to want £20million for the Belgium international. Interested clubs are reluctant to go that high, with Wolves reportedly willing to pay £10million for the 26-year-old.  On one hand, clubs know he’s not part of the first-team picture at Anfield having made just two Premier League starts last season and seven when the Reds won the title. His last league goal for the Reds was on the final day of the 2019/20 …

Time for Liverpool to dispose of the deadwood

Time for Liverpool to dispose of the deadwood

Silly season is officially underway. The Euros and Copa America are done, the beginning of the new Premier League season is still a month or so away, so it's time to obsess over transfers. As per usual, Liverpool have been linked with a host of players, whether it be Florian Neuhaus, Saul Goodman - I mean Niguez, I've been seeing too many Breaking Bad GIFs! - Federico Chiesa or Kylian Mbappe. The Reds certainly need additions in the summer transfer …
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. …
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 …
