Why Liverpool should sign Dele Alli

Why Liverpool should sign Dele Alli

In all honesty, Dele Alli should already be a Liverpool player and had Steven Gerrard been a little more punctual then he would be. Before Alli had even held talks with Tottenham, the Reds made their move to land him. Brendan Rodgers had talks with MK Dons boss Karl Robinson and a package was being worked out to secure the services of the teenage star. As Alli revealed during an appearance on Football Focus a couple of years back, the …
How Hungry Are Liverpool?

How Hungry Are Liverpool?

The Champions League final in Madrid was an incredible night and was certainly the best way to cap off a fantastic 2018/19 season. I was on the streets of Liverpool with hundreds of thousands of others the following day to witness Jürgen Klopp and his team parade the famous trophy and bask in the glory they’d earned. After the heartbreak of the previous year’s final in Kyiv, and after just falling short in the Premier League title race despite racking …
Audere est Facere: how Spurs' motto captures Liverpool's journey

Audere est Facere: how Spurs' motto captures Liverpool's journey

Over the past decade, the Liverpool country has faced so many false and painful dawns. Cultured Hodgson, the European tourist, settling on Merseyside to push us above the British tropes of non-football. The King's stabilising touch, pulling reveries from past decades to raise the dream of Cup wins upon Cup wins. Rodgers' reckless abandon in attacking the title quite literally. The reality? "If you are in the relegation zone, then you are in a relegation battle." "He didn't ask to …
Lucky Lucky Liverpool?

Lucky Lucky Liverpool?

Lucky, lucky Liverpool eh? Comments about all the circumstances in which luck has favoured the Reds this season are out in force after their late goal against Spurs, courtesy of Hugo Lloris punching the ball onto the back of Toby Alderweireld, and there are a lot of frustrated opposition fans, as well as journalists, keen to jump on the Reds’ lucky streak. First things first, we were lucky against Spurs. No two ways about it. On balance, the second half …
Adios, Mi Amigo - Almost Time To Say Goodbye to Alberto Moreno

Adios, Mi Amigo - Almost Time To Say Goodbye to Alberto Moreno

The international break is typically a time for everyone to take a break and recharge the batteries during a long season. The most you can usually hope for during the week off is having all your players return healthy (which rarely happens for Liverpool) and avoiding any bad news. Yet, a piece of Liverpool transfer news dropped on Monday when it was reported that Alberto Moreno would not be getting a new contract with Liverpool and would be allowed to …
Red Rant: Foxy Klopp Not Ready to Contend

Red Rant: Foxy Klopp Not Ready to Contend

Ron Burgundy had three vulnerabilities in life... women, his dog Baxter, and the fact that he would read whatever was on the teleprompter. Our manager has a similar tick. If Jordan Henderson is available, he'll put him on the team sheet. It didn't matter that Emre Can was miles better. Hendo was in the team. It didn't matter that Gini Wijnaldum was man of the match against Brighton playing the 'six.' Move him out for the captain. A £40 million …
How FSG Found Their Perfect Formula

How FSG Found Their Perfect Formula

May 2010: The Royal Bank of Scotland takes Hicks and Gillett to court in order to force the sale of Liverpool Football Club. October 2010, Fenway Sports Group purchase Liverpool Football Club for £300 million, after the club was perilously teetering above the jaws of administration. Nearly eight years later, mistakes have been made, Liverpool did not progress the way they perhaps ought to have, and yet all it took was a couple of extremely clever appointments to execute the …
Momentum - Assessing Liverpool's Domestic Progress

Momentum - Assessing Liverpool's Domestic Progress

Progress is one of the big buzzwords around Jürgen Klopp’s Liverpool at the moment. The club has finished in the top four for the second season in a row, ensuring back to back Champions League campaigns for the first time since Rafa Benitez in 2009. Moreover, the club has backed that up by making use of their Champions League campaign, reaching the final for the first time since 2007 at the first time of asking under Klopp. But I’d argue …
Three Years And A Week: Liverpool 5 Roma 2

Three Years And A Week: Liverpool 5 Roma 2

It’s the early evening of 19th April 2015 and I’m walking home from Kingsbury tube station. The sun is on my back and summer is on the way, but my heart is heavy. I pull my phone out of my pockets and press the necessary digits to find young Sachin Nakrani with whom I am writing the book ‘We’re Everywhere, Us’ – a tome so magnificent that it still resonates in the Red world despite being three seasons old (will sign …
Liverpool and that Semi-final feeling again

Liverpool and that Semi-final feeling again

When I watched Ryan Babel sprint past a tired Cesc Fabregas to finish off an incredible Champions League night, little did I know it was going to take me that long to experience that feeling again. That feeling! That feeling of being in the semi-final of the UEFA Champions League. That feeling is back again, thanks to a bunch of heroes led by Jurgen Klopp. That feeling is just made all the more special by the happenings of the last ten …
