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 …
Why Coutinho To Liverpool Doesn't Make Sense

Why Coutinho To Liverpool Doesn't Make Sense

Let's start with a little housekeeping. Football fandom can sometimes imbue in supporters a sense of "I didn't fancy her anyway", a jilted ex-lover sentiment when it comes to talking about footballers who have left their club, especially in acrimonious circumstances. But lets called a spade a spade, Phillipe Coutinho -- despite the last two and a half years of his career, where the Brazilian has stagnated at both Barcelona and Bayern Munich, being chequered -- is a brilliant player. …
Do Liverpool need Philippe Coutinho?

Do Liverpool need Philippe Coutinho?

It’s that time of the year again. With transfers being discussed, Philippe Coutinho is once again being linked with a return to Liverpool. It’s been a regular occurrence ever since he forced his way out of Anfield to secure a dream move to Barcelona.

Where would Luis Garcia fit into this Liverpool team?

Where would Luis Garcia fit into this Liverpool team?

It’s easy to imagine how Liverpool greats from the Premier League era would fit into this current side. There’s are obvious places for Steven Gerrard, Luis Suarez, Xabi Alonso and Jamie Carragher. You could even shoehorn Philippe Coutinho back into this side, too. Maybe even Fernando Torres at a push.  But very few people would ever think to mention Luis Garcia.  However, I’m of the belief that he’s very much a Jurgen Klopp sort of player and that the German …
