Why taking Coutinho back makes a lot of sense

It's the transfer rumour that just won't go away. The will he, won't he. The shall we, shan't we. Does the heart rule the head or is it the other way around. The summer saga (for want of a better word) for Liverpool fans this summer is whether their fallen hero, Philippe Coutinho, will make a dramatic return to Anfield after what has proven to be an ill-fated 18 months at Barcelona. After raking in the capital as a result …
Selecting the perfect 2019/20 Liverpool squad

Selecting the perfect 2019/20 Liverpool squad

After a tiring but ultimately thrilling season, Liverpool are almost ready to go again. A number of players will return to Melwood for pre-season training next week, as preparations for another huge campaign begin for Jurgen Klopp and his staff. It's been a relatively silent summer on the transfer front so far, barring the addition of exciting centre-back Sepp van den Berg, but a few more incomings will surely arrive in the coming weeks, despite what some are reporting. Several …
Liverpool's Fullback Creativity and Recruitment Targets – Part 1

Liverpool's Fullback Creativity and Recruitment Targets – Part 1

Liverpool’s Fullback Creativity and Recruitment Targets – Part 1 An analytical deep dive to profile Liverpool's fullback creativity and answer the question - is it sustainable? This season, Liverpool consistently lacked a midfield set-up that tasked a player to be a high performing creator and goal threat.

Rotation, Rotation, Rotation - Give It A Rest

Rotation, Rotation, Rotation - Give It A Rest

A change is as good as rest is how the saying goes, but with a maximum of eleven games to go and only four-midweek matches, is it time for Klopp to give it a rest with his rotation game? The run-in could favour Liverpool, with City having Chelsea, Spurs and Man Utd still to go, while our biggest game is surely against Chelsea at home. Therefore it's surely time for Klopp to pick his best XI in every game — …

What is Liverpool’s Best Midfield?

What is Liverpool’s Best Midfield?

Comparative to previous years where Jurgen Klopp has had four players to choose from off the bat, Liverpool have benefitted from more options in the middle of the park this season, before the rigour of the campaign could take its toll, at least. It’s therefore been of little surprise to see the German utilise the extra options by tailoring his system to each opponent, obtaining the perfect mix of defensive resilience and attacking ingenuity across the board. However, the injuries …
