Liverpool Need To Think Big To Replace Divock Origi

Liverpool Need To Think Big To Replace Divock Origi

By all accounts, Divock Origi's time at Liverpool will come to an end in this summer's transfer window. After a brilliant end to the 2018/2019 season, where the Belgian had a telling hand in both the Reds qualifying for -- with two goals in the semi-final against Barcelona -- and winning -- the forward's goal put the finishing touches in the 2-0 victory over Spurs in the showpiece -- the Champions League, the 26-year-old has failed to recapture that form …
Nicolas Gonzalez: A Future Liverpool Forward

Nicolas Gonzalez: A Future Liverpool Forward

Gradually, reports are beginning to emerge that Liverpool's main priority in the upcoming transfer window will be adding more firepower to their forward line. According to the well connected Simon Hughes of The Athletic the Reds will be looking to supplement their stock of attackers with addition(s) and not -- despite some rumours linking Mohamed Salah with a move to pastures new -- to replace any of their current options. With Divock Origi and Xherdan Shaqiri expected to leave, Jurgen Klopp, by …
Tactical Breakdown: Liverpool 0-2 Atalanta

Tactical Breakdown: Liverpool 0-2 Atalanta

Gian Piero Gasperini's Atalanta is a fascinating side. In their 0-5 loss to Liverpool at the Bergamo Stadium they displayed a number of interesting tactical concepts that in themselves were reasonable, astute and innovative, but were ruthlessly dismembered by a Klopp side at its cutting edge best. Central to that performance was the ability of the forwards and midfielders to synchronise their movements to drag the Italian side's players out of key areas, and use direct passing, dribbling and excellent …
Thiago Influence Can Lift Jordan Henderson To Old Self

Thiago Influence Can Lift Jordan Henderson To Old Self

Jordan Henderson is an extremely versatile player, as we've seen throughout the entirety of his Liverpool career. Whether it's been as the midfield anchor, as an energetic, box to box tornado of engine room intensity or -- as we saw in his first season with the Reds, under Kenny Dalglish -- as a right midfielder in midfield four, the captain has been a consistent performer for most of the time since his summer 2011 move from Sunderland. Playing as the …
The Evolution of Liverpool FC’s Forward Line in The Premier League Era

The Evolution of Liverpool FC’s Forward Line in The Premier League Era

In these unprecedented times of lockdown, sanitizer, empty stadiums and the Netflix / Amazon Prime binge, I’ve found myself often searching for new ways to occupy both my mind as well as my body. With the remarkable closure to a triumphant league campaign by the reds, the common football fan was greeted by the unique climax to the 2019/20 Champions League. For me, this end period of the European Cup began as a slow burn that ever so gradually sparked …
Limp Liverpool Crash Out Of League Cup After Shootout Agony

Limp Liverpool Crash Out Of League Cup After Shootout Agony

Liverpool exited the League Cup at the fifth round stage after a 5-4 penalty shootout defeat to Arsenal at Anfield. A drab and forgetful 90 minutes ended scoreless and the Gunners -- through Joe Willock -- won the shootout after Divock Origi and Harry Wilson missed their spot-kicks. Jurgen Klopp elected to make a raft of changes from the Reds' Premier League victory over the same opponents on Monday night, but Mohamed Salah and Virgil van Dijk -- surprisingly -- …
Liverpool Advance Thanks To Lincoln Assassination

Liverpool Advance Thanks To Lincoln Assassination

Liverpool will play Arsenal in the fourth round of the League Cup after they thumped Lincoln City 7-2 away. A brace of goals from both Takumi Minamino and Curtis Jones, as well as further strikes from Divock Origi, Marko Grujic, and Xherdan Shaqiri sealed the much-changed Reds' passage into the next round. The game was seen as a shop window for some of Liverpool's fringe players and Shaqiri, in particular, would have done either his prospects of remaining part of …
Divock Origi: The end of a unique LFC career?

Divock Origi: The end of a unique LFC career?

Divock Origi's time at Liverpool looks to be coming to an end, following an Anfield career that has seen a mix of unforgettable highs, infuriating lows and plenty in between. The Belgian continues to be linked with a move away before the transfer window closes early next month, as Jurgen Klopp aims to get rid of dead wood in his squad. Brighton are reportedly the latest club tipped to acquire his signature - an ideal next step for Origi, allowing …
Potential Solutions To Fill The Origi Role

Potential Solutions To Fill The Origi Role

Divock Origi is a strange case. The Belgian forward has cemented himself into Liverpool club folklore with his contributions in last season's victorious Champions League campaign. The 25-year old scored a brace in the Reds' miraculous 4-0 second leg semi-final tie against Barcelona, sealing their passage to a second consecutive European Cup final. Then, in the showpiece itself, Origi smashed a low left-footed drive past Hugo Lloris to put the final nail in Tottenham's coffin, rubberstamping a 2-0 win which …
The remarkable rise of Liverpool's pre-Klopp Fab Five

The remarkable rise of Liverpool's pre-Klopp Fab Five

Jurgen Klopp is approaching five years as Liverpool manager, which is a frightening sentence to type. Where on earth did the time go? At this point in 2015, Brendan Rodgers was in his final pre-season at Anfield and the Reds were looking to bounce back from the humiliation of a 6-1 defeat away to Stoke. Little did we know at the time, FSG were flirting with Jurgen Klopp during his post-Borussia Dortmund breather, with Rodgers' time all but up. In …
