Top Of The Pile Liverpool Must Start Again

Liverpool are Champions of Europe. I still enjoy saying that. But even if it feels as though the dust has barely settled on a terrific and historic 18/19 campaign, the quest to match last season or even have a better one, in 19/20 has already begun. Even though it’s still a month until the Premier League begins in earnest, pre-season is already underway. The hard work has to start again, and nothing means anything. When the new season starts, everyone …
Liverpool’s Search For The Second Shaqiri

Liverpool’s Search For The Second Shaqiri

Eyebrows were raised when Liverpool opted to trigger the £13.5m relegation release clause in Xherdan Shaqiri’s Stoke City contract in July 2018. The Swiss winger had long been linked with Liverpool, from his Basel days throughout his stints at Bayern Munich and Inter Milan, so the Reds’ interest in the player may not have been surprising. The question posed by many, however, was whether Shaqiri, the man, would have the correct character and attitude to play second fiddle to Liverpool’s …
Preparing to go again: Klopp's Mentality is Crucial

Preparing to go again: Klopp's Mentality is Crucial

The Reds have been back at Melwood for a few days but it still seems crazy to think about the new season. It only seems like two minutes ago that Reds were bouncing around in Madrid, and then back in Liverpool. But this is it. A new season. Last season’s success answered so many questions that people had of this Liverpool team – and Klopp himself. He finally won a final, but now his challenge is different. He has the …
Don't You Forget About Mo

Don't You Forget About Mo

A question that often gets asked of Liverpool fans is, "Who do you feel is the most underrated player in the squad?". You see the same sort of names provided, more often than not: Gini Wijnaldum, Joel Matip, even Andy Robertson before his excellent 2018/19 season. A player who I feel deserves the tag of most under-appreciated within the Reds' roster, though, is Mohamed Salah. Some of you probably think I'm mad to suggest Mo: 2017/18 PFA Player of the …
Why Liverpool Don't Need An Attacking Midfielder

Why Liverpool Don't Need An Attacking Midfielder

Ever since the departure of Philippe Coutinho to Barcelona in January 2018, one principal question has lingered on Merseyside during transfer periods: how will Liverpool replace him? On the surface, it makes sense, but look deeper and it doesn't really hold water. Since January 2018, a Countinho-less Liverpool have been to two Champions League finals, tallied a club-record points haul in the Premier League and lifted "old big-ears" for the sixth time. So while headlines abound as the Reds are …
Ruthless Reds: How Liverpool Can Build on a Sixth European Cup

Ruthless Reds: How Liverpool Can Build on a Sixth European Cup

Having still not come down from the high of watching the mighty Reds lift number six, it's easy to cast a sentimental judgement on the squad which gave us a night to remember in Madrid. However, this summer is not a time for Liverpool to rest on their laurels. From winning the Champions League in 2005 to finishing second in the league in 2008/09 and 2013/14, the Reds have found themselves in extremely strong positions in the past but we've …
Liverpool's Biggest Moments 2018/19 - The Premier League

Liverpool's Biggest Moments 2018/19 - The Premier League

The 2018/19 season has been over for a couple of weeks now, and it’s been a full month since the Premier League finished, so it seems like a good time to reflect on what was an absolutely scintillating campaign for Liverpool. Now, I wanted this list of moments to be a bit different for a couple of reasons: there are obviously a few that speak for themselves, which could make elements of a top five list a bit predictable. So …

LFC's 2019/20 Fixtures - The Road to the Promised Land

It's only been two weeks since Jordan Henderson lifted big ears in Madrid and we are already moving on to next season. Liverpool supporters eager to see the club build on the success of the past year are now hitting plane tracking websites and looking for our famous van: https://twitter.com/lfcxsam/status/1140367753536311298?s=21 (Un)Fortunately Michael Edwards and co have been so brilliant over the last half a dozen transfer windows, that I don't really care about silly season. The club targets the right …
Five left backs who could replace Alberto Moreno

Five left backs who could replace Alberto Moreno

The confirmation that Alberto Moreno will be leaving Liverpool after a five-year stint at the club finally came this week. The Spaniard has found it impossible to prize minutes away from Andy Robertson who is arguably the world best left back at this moment in time. This announcement means the club has no obvious back-up for Robertson and they must look to rectify this during the summer transfer window. With game time severely reduced, it may be hard to get …
