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

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.

But with the January transfer window approaching, and with Mané soon to depart for the African Cup of Nations, Liverpool, for a club that appeared blessed with attacking talent, suddenly seem desperately short. Yet, a League Cup …

Dahoud, Pulisic, and a Bit of Patience

The more things change, the more they stay the same. That’s such a clichéd turn of phrase. Often, with sayings such as that, meaning gets lost. What does it actually mean? If things change, surely corresponding changes occur. Something can’t possibly change without things changing alongside it, that’s the point of change. It inspires things, it creates other things, and it destroys some things. Through all of the change that’s occurred within the last twelve months at Liverpool, the undying …
