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 …
Can the Attack Fire Liverpool into the Top 4?

Can the Attack Fire Liverpool into the Top 4?

The Liverpool Echo, more specifically James Pearce, recently published an article informing Liverpool fans that Jurgen Klopp no longer had an interest in Bayern Munich's Mario Gotze and he was happy with his attacking options moving forward into the new season. Given the Reds were looking to bring in Monaco's Kylian Mbappe and Rennes' Ousmane Dembele it does strike me as odd that after only one attacking signing coming in so far this Summer in Sadio Mane, and with Jordon …
Liverpool FC: The Need for a Balanced Midfield

Liverpool FC: The Need for a Balanced Midfield

Jurgen Klopp's favoured formation appears to be 4-2-3-1, so with this attacking format the two central midfielders have a huge role to play in respect of providing cover for the defence. This piece looks at if currently Liverpool have the players to provide that balance and if not, what do they require, to try to provide Liverpool with a ballast against the attacking flair that is evident within the side, to propel the side up the league this upcoming season. …
A look at Liverpool Target Ante Coric

A look at Liverpool Target Ante Coric

The Balkans aren't renown as hot bed for football talent but they're steadily going about piecing together their very own golden generation. In modern day football players now need to be as talented with the ball as they are industrious off of it. Croatian footballers tend to have the knack of merging great technical ability with a high work rate. They're quickly becoming the breeding ground for the perfectly balanced modern day footballer. They're able to produce players like Luka …
