Why Gini Being Let Out Of His Bottle Would Boost Liverpool

Why Gini Being Let Out Of His Bottle Would Boost Liverpool

It wouldn't be an international break in the last year or so without two things happening. One, Liverpool fans worrying about any of their stars being injured in a meaningless friendly on the other side of the globe; or two, the timelines of Reds fans being festooned with clips of Georginio Wijnaldum plundering goals for the Dutch national team. The Netherlands manager, Ronald Koeman invariably plays Wijnaldum as the most advanced midfielder, ahead of Frenkie De Jong and Marten de …

Finding the perfect forward to add to the Liverpool squad

Finding the perfect forward to add to the Liverpool squad

Liverpool went into the summer transfer window looking to add attacking reinforcements. Fans wanted it to happen. Journalists mentioned the need for a fourth attacker.  French media linked the Reds with Nicolas Pepe, German press claimed Timo Werner was a target for the European champions while reports in Spain said Philippe Coutinho was set for a return to Merseyside. Yet when the window closed, Jurgen Klopp hadn’t added any attacking reinforcements.  It’s still early days, but the decision not to …
Liverpool's transfer conundrum is their biggest strength

Liverpool's transfer conundrum is their biggest strength

People will have you believe that Liverpool find themselves in a tricky situation in the transfer market. With Sadio Mane, Roberto Firmino and Mohamed Salah all guaranteed starters for the Reds, finding adequate back-ups for the trio is a task. Not an impossible one but very much a difficult one.  Gary Neville made the point recently that the attacking trident is too good and it’s because of this that players will be reluctant to sign for the European champions.  To …
Did Liverpool miss a trick in not re-signing Coutinho?

Did Liverpool miss a trick in not re-signing Coutinho?

Liverpool fans this summer were divided in their desire to see Phillipe Coutinho back at the club. Some argued that it would bring welcome quality and depth to Liverpool’s attack, whilst others argued that the club had moved on from the Brazilian and that his manner of departure was unforgivable. Emotions aside, though, and I see a clear trick missed by Liverpool in not bringing him back.  Minutes played The workload of Liverpool’s renowned front three has been a huge …
The real reason Liverpool shouldn't sign Philippe Coutinho

The real reason Liverpool shouldn't sign Philippe Coutinho

Philippe Coutinho’s rumoured availability has resulted in all logic going right out of the window.  With Liverpool failing to add to their squad this summer, fans are desperate to bring him in back on loan. Not just to give the Reds some much needed attacking depth, but to keep the Brazilian maestro away from rivals with Manchester United, Arsenal and Spurs all reportedly keen on the Barcelona attacker.  It’s a powerplay. One adopted by various Premier League clubs throughout the …
Havertz Little Patience

Havertz Little Patience

Yes, this is a piece condoning, and perhaps even encouraging, a lack of Liverpool signings this summer. But if anyone’s angered by that, they’re hanging onto a reality that’s long passed them by. After all, Liverpool fans have had it broadcasted on repeat that Klopp and co. aren’t planning any significant investment this summer. Of course, the need for an able backup attacker is still as imperative as it was a month ago, as is detailed by this author’s piece …
Do Liverpool Know How to be Frontrunners?

Do Liverpool Know How to be Frontrunners?

If you could have one movie character share Michael Edwards’ air-conditioning and have a chat across his desk, who would it be? I’ll pause for a moment while you ponder the possibilities. The right answer is, Ben Affleck. No, not Batman. Edwards doesn’t need to be roughed up just yet. Maybe A.J. from Armageddon could have a heart to heart with our sporting director and let him know just how important it is for us that he makes a signing, …
Why taking Coutinho back makes a lot of sense

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 …
