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 …

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. …

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 …

Why the 2016-17 Pre-Season Will be Different

Another season. Another promised new dawn. Another set of big hopes and expectations from Liverpool for the fans. Starting on Saturday, Liverpool will commence their pre-season training as they begin preparations for the 2016-17 season. And as Jürgen Klopp promised, this will be a pre-season unlike any that the players have seen previously in their careers.

Just as the season came to a close, the floodgates open for everyone in social media – from journalists with real info, to journalists who make up info, to ITK’s seeking for acknowledgement – all looking for fame and recognition by football clubs’ respective fan base. Transfer-mania begins when you see every player under the sun being linked with your club and with Liverpool falling victim to the ‘2+2=5’ transfer algorithm; they are hardly shaded from the limelight. This may …
Liverpool and Dortmund: Uncanny Resemblance

Liverpool and Dortmund: Uncanny Resemblance

The Liverpool squad had been granted a clean slate after the club parted ways with Brendan Rodgers and appointed Jurgen Klopp on October last year. It gave them a chance to prove themselves to their new manager, who is arguably the most popular manager in world football. While many have successfully predicted some players would have difficulties to adapt to the intense system Klopp demands of his players, there were was only one who surprised us most. Adam Lallana. The …
Sadio Mane at RB Salzburg: A Reflection of the Future?

Sadio Mane at RB Salzburg: A Reflection of the Future?

Liverpool have signed Sadio Mane this week, continuing the trend of shopping on the South Coast. The reported fee has ranged between 30 million pounds to 36 million pounds depending on whom you would want to believe. It is a valid question whether the question is of great significance in that if you have stumped up 30 million, 2 or 4 million more should not be the point of focus. What should be the point of focus is the role …
