Team of the Year Crystallises Liverpool's Progress

Team of the Year Crystallises Liverpool's Progress

So Paul Pogba eh? What a huge shock and weird selection to the PFA Team of the Year that was! In this essay, I will… Just kidding. Whilst I do think it’s strange he’s been selected despite an inconsistent season, I could see how getting shoehorned into a 4-3-3 formation with a clear lack of individual central midfield candidates could end up with Pogba potentially getting in the team, maybe even with less votes than both Hazard and Salah, both …
Out of Contract Porto Stars Would Energise Liverpool Midfield

Out of Contract Porto Stars Would Energise Liverpool Midfield

Liverpool take on Porto next week in their Champions League second leg encounter at the Estádio do Dragão, but the match offers an extra degree of interest. Porto midfielders, Yacine Brahimi and Héctor Herrera, are both out of contract this summer and could possibly be destined for Anfield next season. Liverpool have missed the attacking midfield flair of Philippe Coutinho this season and have yet to replace the iconic playmaker. Goals have been hard to come by from midfield as …
Danny Murphy believes that Philippe Coutinho

Danny Murphy believes that Philippe Coutinho "would never be welcomed back" at Anfield

Former Liverpool midfielder Danny Murphy doesn't think there is any way that Philippe Coutinho could ever move back to Anfield. Speaking with sportingbet.com, Murphy said that he didn't think Coutinho left in the right way and that as a result he has now "made his bed" and needs to deal with the consequences of how his career has seemingly derailed. When asked if he felt Liverpool fans would ever welcome Coutinho back, Murphy said:
"Coutinho would never be welcomed …
Liverpool And The Coutinho Dilemma

Liverpool And The Coutinho Dilemma

I don’t like people messing about with Liverpool Football Club. In the same way others think that ancient scriptures should not be tampered with and that the word of the deities to which they sing should be unbendable, I am of the mind that no one should meddle with the central ethos of the club to further their own means. Of course, this is the textbook definition of zealotry and though I find it bitterly distasteful in others, my own …
Shaqiri can emulate past 'risks' Sturridge and Coutinho

Shaqiri can emulate past 'risks' Sturridge and Coutinho

On current form, Xherdan Shaqiri is Liverpool's most in-form attacking player. The Swiss is yet to put a foot wrong for the Reds despite struggling to earn regular playing time, while his performances for Switzerland have been outstanding. He produced a match-winning display in his country's shock 5-2 win over Belgium on Sunday night, and has now scored two goals and registered five assists in his last eight appearances domestically and internationally. The current signs are immensely positive from a …
Time For Forgotten Man Keita To Excel

Time For Forgotten Man Keita To Excel

It's hard to think of a Liverpool signing in the last decade that brought as much delight as the capture of Naby Keita. Luis Suarez is a name that instantly springs to mind, but when he traded Amsterdam for Anfield he wasn’t the world-beater he would go on to become. Mo Salah and Sadio Mane both arrived to mixed reactions, while the likes of Philippe Coutinho and Roberto Firmino only became global stars once they moved to the Reds, like …
x-Pected Improvement Following Klopp's Upgrade of the Spine

x-Pected Improvement Following Klopp's Upgrade of the Spine

A mere 3 games into a highly anticipated new season and Liverpool sit atop the Premier League table. While it's still early days, with the integration of new players underway, it's extremely satisfying to see the club hit maximum points thus far. 9 points, zero goals conceded, firing at probably only 60-70% of our true level. Improvement is sure to follow as the season progresses. Yet this is the Premier League. The toughest domestic competition in all of Europe, and quite possibly …
Why Daniel Sturridge Can't be the Only Back-Up to Firmino

Why Daniel Sturridge Can't be the Only Back-Up to Firmino

Dear Daniel. I just can’t do it anymore. I thought it would be different, but it wasn’t. You let me down again. I should know better by now, but I keep thinking that things might have changed. Year after year, I thought you would be back to your old self, but as much as you tried you just couldn’t do it. We both pretended it was the same and that nothing had changed, but we need to face the hard …
