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 …
No Need to Sign a Striker This Summer

No Need to Sign a Striker This Summer

After enjoying a goal-laden season Liverpool are apparently in the market for a new striker, after losing Daniel Sturridge at the end of his contract with the club. The club, despite scoring 115 goals in all competitions last season, are believed by some to be short at the front end of the pitch. With Sadio Mane, Mohammed Salah and Roberto Firmino leading the line it's safe to say goals will not be a problem next season. In-depth strength is a …
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 …
Liverpool Players At The Forefront of Brazilian Success

Liverpool Players At The Forefront of Brazilian Success

Brazil sailed through to the Copa America final with a 2-0 victory over their eternal rivals, Argentina, on Tuesday night, thanks in no small part to Liverpool players. It is a testament to Liverpool’s growth in recent years that they have players playing in key roles for a footballing powerhouse like Brazil. Goals from Manchester’s City’s Gabriel Jesus and Liverpool’s Roberto Firmino further extended Lionel Messi’s wait for international silverware with Argentina. The diminutive Barcelona number ten tried his hardest …
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 …
Liverpool's Mohamed Salah scores again as Egypt advance in AFCON

Liverpool's Mohamed Salah scores again as Egypt advance in AFCON

Liverpool's Mohamed Salah made it two goals in two games as he helped Egypt to top Group A of the AFCON with a 100% record. The Reds' number 11 scored an excellent free-kick to open the scoring against Uganda in the 36th minute. Egypt went on to win 2-0 and qualify for the last sixteen of the AFCON with the maximum possible 9 points.
Has Oxlade-Chamberlain Become Over-hyped?

Has Oxlade-Chamberlain Become Over-hyped?

Jurgen Klopp has assembled arguably the most likeable Liverpool squad in memory. Whereas in the past, supporters would have a small selection of genuine heroes to choose from, they are now spoiled for choice. Everywhere you look, there are superb, Champions League-winning footballers who are also warm, down-to-earth characters, from Alisson in goal right the way through to Sadio Mane in attack. One player who manages to even stand out from this crowd is Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain: a loveable person and …
Why Liverpool Must Spend This Summer

Why Liverpool Must Spend This Summer

In any other era of football history, a 97 point haul in the league would guarantee the league title. Unfortunately for Liverpool, this is the era of Manchester City and their state-sponsored, law-flouting spending and their club record points tally wasn’t sufficient to claim the clubs first league since the 1989-90 season. Liverpool’s squad, as the league table indicates and the Champions League victory further reinforces, is excellent. It is, however, not deep enough. Until the required quality is added …
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 …
