Good or bad business by Liverpool this summer?

It’s been a busy summer of ins and outs at Anfield so far this summer, with more to come it seems. But, has this been a good window for Liverpool with the business that has been done? Players In Joel Matip and Marko Grujic arrived this summer, but both deals were agreed back in January, with Matip a free transfer following his contract at Schalke 04 expiring and Grujic staying at Red Star Belgrade on loan.

Observations from Pre-Season so far

Observations from Pre-Season so far

Liverpool's pre-season is well under way now and after four consecutive clean sheets to go alongside four straight wins the mood around the squad seems buoyant. Reds boss Jurgen Klopp has used these matches to try out different formations, tweaked line-ups and contrasting tactics. After the emphatic 5-0 win against Fleetwood Town he said results aren't important and it's about familiarising the team with how he wants them to play in the new season. Now, normally you take everything from …

Still Spaces To Fill At Liverpool - A Left Back Please

AI writers have got together and what will follow will be a series of articles where in an ideal world scenario, if we could still have one further acquisition to enhance the Liverpool playing squad who would it be, and what position would that player fill. As we know Liverpool have been very busy in the off season bringing in a number of players, in attacking positions  we now have numerous options to cause opponents problems, and how Jurgen Klopp …
Premier League Proven isn't always a negative

Premier League Proven isn't always a negative

The Transfer Window has been officially open for nearly a month now and Liverpool's two biggest signings have been players from within the Premier League. Both Sadio Mane and Gini Wijnaldum arrived at Anfield for a combined £55 Million. Most Reds fans must have a strong feeling of deja-vu about such deals. Since Fenway Sports Group bought the club Liverpool have spent over £200 Million on Premier League proven players with varied success. Despite the questionable success of this tactic …

Just how Important to the balance of the team is Emre Can?

Before the transfer window even opened Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp implied he wanted the bulk of incoming players to be signed before the club flew out to America for their tour. So far the Reds have brought in Loris Karius, Joel Matip, Marko Grujic (although he was signed in January), Sadio Mane Ragnar Klavan and Gini Wijnaldum has joined up with the squad now too. Although some supporters view these dealings as underwhelming given the earlier links to a certain …
Full Faith in Football under FSG

Full Faith in Football under FSG

Football fans are fickle. Liverpool fans seem even more so. Even as I type this out at half-time of our friendly against Wigan, there has been one peak example. Whilst receiving a square ball about 6 yards out from his net, Karius slipped and almost allowed a tap in for a Wigan striker. He recovered, and the ball went out for a corner. Now let me emphasize that this is Karius’ third match for us. He’s now only played 3 …
James Milner must prove doubters wrong again next season

James Milner must prove doubters wrong again next season

When Mamadou Sakho claimed Liverpool’s number 3 squad number on Monday morning, curious Liverpool fans glancing down the squad list were perhaps most disappointed when reminded about the incumbent of one shirt in particular – James Milner and the number 7. The previous holder of that shirt had been the magical Luis Suarez, one of very few worthy successors to the shirt of the king of the kop, Kenny Dalglish, over 25 years ago. James Milner, boring, versatile, and honest James Milner, does …
2016/2017 - The Season of Sturridge?

2016/2017 - The Season of Sturridge?

Love him or loathe him we as Liverpool fans have to accept that Daniel Sturridge's Liverpool career has been a bit of an unsolved mystery. The mystery revolves around whether the year Liverpool finished as runners up in the Premier League and Sturridge hit over 20 goals was an anomaly. As bizarre as it sounds people do loathe Sturridge. They resent the fact we've been so reliant on him and he hasn't been there to shoulder the burden. To them …
Are Formations that Important to Klopp?

Are Formations that Important to Klopp?

The picture below was posted on Social Media recently. It's of Jurgen Klopp holding a tactics board while talking to the squad during preseason. It's a picture that has generated a lot of debate on Twitter with fans talking about how the team lined up on the board. Depending on how you view it will have an impact on what formation you see. If you work under the assumption that Klopp is showing it to the players then it's a …
FSG Tying Klopp Down Is A Statement Of Intent

FSG Tying Klopp Down Is A Statement Of Intent

Liverpool Football Club, once a European powerhouse, found itself out of depth when they resurfaced in the Champions League two seasons ago, facing Real Madrid in the group stage, eventually failing to secure a spot in the knockout stages. The past six or so years, bar a magnificent 13/14 campaign, was a period to forget for us fans. We’ve only managed to qualify for European’s elite competition once in that period. We've been in a state of rebuild since, changing …
