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 …
Three Players That Could Leave Anfield This Summer

Three Players That Could Leave Anfield This Summer

The summer transfer window is nearly upon us, as managers will have the opportunity to adjust their squads ahead of a fresh campaign. Jurgen Klopp will have huge questions to ask himself during the off-season, as Liverpool look to refresh their squad to build another title-winning side. The Reds remain among the favourites to regain their league title next season, and gamblers will be able to claim a Paddy Power promo code before making a wager. But, which stars could …
End of the road for Naby and Ox at Liverpool?

End of the road for Naby and Ox at Liverpool?

Well that's that for another season. Liverpool managed to salvage their campaign in impressive fashion, producing an unlikely 10-game unbeaten streak and somehow finishing third in the Premier League. From looking like Europa League football was a guarantee next season, and a return to bleak Thursday nights, Jurgen Klopp's side showed their monstrous mentality, standing tall and displaying great resilience. While positivity is now in the air, Liverpool cannot afford to rest on their laurels, with another important summer transfer …
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 -- …
