5 Realistic January Transfer Targets for Liverpool

5 Realistic January Transfer Targets for Liverpool

Liverpool are on top of the Premier League. Though there is little cause to remedy anything in this Liverpool side right now, they are in the midst of a tense, to-and-fro title challenge, and will face the German Goliath Bayern Munich in the first knockout phase of the Champions League in February. For a variety of reasons, Michael Edwards and Jürgen Klopp have been reticent to delve into the January transfer market during their time at Liverpool, but if there …
Why Liverpool Must Find Their Coutinho Replacement

Why Liverpool Must Find Their Coutinho Replacement

Liverpool’s pursuit of Nabil Fekir looks to be over (for the time being), and with it has come another question: do Liverpool currently have their optimal squad? Or should they return to the market once more, with the intent of finally replacing the man who formerly practised his magic at Anfield? Well, quite simply, yes. It might not be Fekir, nor might it be someone who will fit what Coutinho did immediately, but the Reds aren’t a complete team: at …
Leon Bailey and that

Leon Bailey and that "Concrete Interest"

With the breaking news this morning that Bailey himself confirmed Liverpool have a “concrete interest” in him, I decided to follow on from my pieces on Fekir & Pulisic with a look at the Leverkusen star, Leon Bailey. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VfzKDAPd9VY Above: Reliable Bundesliga journalist, Old Gregg, hinting at a move to Liverpool. My mind wandered this morning to that exact moment I fell in love with him, as a player. I had seen him a few times, mostly in cameos or a …
Can Pulisic Break the Curse?

Can Pulisic Break the Curse?

All major signings come with an element of risk. Will they settle in a new country? Adapt well to the pace of the game here? Or to their new clubs tactical framework? For some players, the risk is an even greater one. Their name is Christian. [caption id="attachment_35751" align="aligncenter" width="480"] Stewart Lee has really let himself go.[/caption] Liverpool's problem with the name 'Christian' began back in 2000 when they illegally approached Christian Ziege and signed him by meeting the exact …
Finding Faux-kir | The Search for Fekir Alternatives

Finding Faux-kir | The Search for Fekir Alternatives

It was either him or us. Someone was going to get hurt here. Fekir or us Liverpool fans. Either his knee would collapse, or the deal to sign him would. He had already been interviewed for the site, done the photo shoot, sold his house in France, told his ex-colleagues what he really thought of them and cancelled his milk order. Then Liverpool pulled the plug. At least that is how I believe it played out based on some reactions …
Why Christian Pulisic would be Liverpool's Ultimate Investment

Why Christian Pulisic would be Liverpool's Ultimate Investment

With football’s ever-growing obsession with the word “potential”, it’s not often one gets to make statements of absolution. Indeed, football is obsessed with making resolute, consummate statements within a game that is transient and is cursed with never really knowing what is real and what is just, essentially, an educated guess. Football clubs have the power of analysis, of an endless stream of statistics and opinions from those most qualified to make decisions, and yet no decision ever made could …
Why Bruno Fernandes Should Be Liverpool's Contingency Plan

Why Bruno Fernandes Should Be Liverpool's Contingency Plan

Monday the 11th of June: one of football’s “firsts” transpired in Portugal, in reaction to one of football’s more stranger stories. Sporting Lisbon, under the tyrannical rule of a despot who’s been described as the football president equivalent of Donald Trump, are forced to accept the news that over a hundred million worth of its assets will depart the club, citing “Just cause” for the termination of their contracts after a group of the club’s ultras attacked their own players …
Five Potential Attackers to Backup Liverpool's Main Men

Five Potential Attackers to Backup Liverpool's Main Men

Christian Pulisic Dortmund’s American sensation, Christian Pulisic has been on the radar of Liverpool (and Klopp) for a while now. Just nineteen and already laboured with shouldering the burdens of club and country, he’s certainly got experience beyond his years. Still raw and unrefined, Pulisic’s sublime dribbling ability is the first thing that stands out whenever he gets on the ball. Alongside that, however is the tendency to come up big when it matters, such as the winner he scored …
Mystery Liverpool FC Target Narrowed By Northcroft

Mystery Liverpool FC Target Narrowed By Northcroft

After the untimely departure of Philippe Coutinho, Liverpool supporters are understandably anxious to pin their hopes to a replacement. The names that are repeatedly thrown out there are Leicester’s Riyad Mahrez and Monaco’s Thomas Lemar. However, reports have varied from tales of deals nearly done to outright dismissals of the links altogether. Two recent journalist interviews have created a serious buzz amongst LFC supporters and may move the media microscope to an entirely different group of players. The Telegraph’s Jason …
5 Players to Replace Phil Coutinho

5 Players to Replace Phil Coutinho

Thomas Lemar The man who this writer once described as being the creative force behind Kylian Mbappe, Thomas Lemar is the man being touted as the replacement for Phillipe Coutinho. There’s a good reason Monaco’s price tag is yet to waver from the €90 million mark – that is the reflection of his importance to Leonardo Jardim’s side. Though a winger by position, Lemar’s dribbling ability and creative incision are belied by a willingness to do the hard yards, and …
