How should Liverpool line-up in attack this season?

How should Liverpool line-up in attack this season?

Neil Jones got a lot of Liverpool fans talking recently when he wrote that 'next summer is already being talked up as a big one by sources close to the club'. I chose, based on past experience, not to read into that. Instead, it was another line in his piece that stood out to me. "Wonderful as they are, this will be the fifth season that those three [Mohamed Salah, Roberto Firmino and Sadio Mane, of course] have made up …

Time for a central role for Mohamed Salah?

Time for a central role for Mohamed Salah?

Liverpool are back, looking healthy and refreshed after a much-needed post-season break. The 2020/21 campaign was an intense one for the Reds, both mentally and physically, and both Jurgen Klopp and his players looked drained by the time they sealed Champions League football back in May. If one player carried this team more than anyone in 2020/21 it was Salah, who enjoyed another outstanding season while others around him struggled. Liverpool's No.11 scored 31 goals in all competitions, standing tall …
What should Liverpool do with Divock Origi?

What should Liverpool do with Divock Origi?

I won’t hear a bad word said against Divock Origi, but the club need to sell him this summer.  He’s a cult hero for what he did during the 2018/19 campaign and there’s absolutely no disputing that. It is still surreal to think back to that season and his involvement in it. He was chucked on late against Everton with Liverpool looking to sneak a win and he was in the right place to nod home after Jordan Pickford’s error. …
Where does Salah rank among the all-time Liverpool greats?

Where does Salah rank among the all-time Liverpool greats?

Even in a season where Liverpool capitulated at times, Mo Salah was still largely exceptional. Granted, there were occasions when the Reds' No.11 wasn't at his stellar best, but he was comfortably his side's Player of the Year and helped inspire them to an unlikely third-place finish. While Sadio Mane and Roberto Firmino floundered, Salah scored 31 goals in all competitions, and without him, it is hard to imagine Liverpool's campaign being anything other than a disaster. It is now …
Divock Origi: One of the most curious LFC careers

Divock Origi: One of the most curious LFC careers

Most Liverpool careers are easy to define. Some are legendary figures who reach world-class levels for the Reds, some are great servants who rarely let the team down and others are disaster areas, to name just a few examples. It is often simple to fit an individual into a certain category, using their back catalogue of performances as a perfect way to gauge them, but then there's someone like Divock Origi. It looks highly likely that the Belgian will move …
Is Donyell Malen the answer?

Is Donyell Malen the answer?

Liverpool have already addressed a key deficiency in their squad depth with the signing of Ibrahima Konate from RB Leipzig. But their next priority, even ahead of a replacement for Georginio Wijnaldum, must be recruiting a quality, versatile forward. With the Africa Cup of Nations set to begin on 9 January 2022, the Reds could be without Mohamed Salah and Sadio Mane for a full month of the season. Liverpool can't hope to simply 'survive' that period by assembling a …
Mo Salah - What Next...?

Mo Salah - What Next...?

Mohamed Salah, a player with two stints to his name within the Premier League, stands as a genuine world class player in the modern game. His personal goal record is phenomenal, his under-appreciation outside of Anfield equally so. A player brought in to add firepower to the reds, with pace and goals from wide, delivered from the second he arrived. With a power shift of Christiano Ronaldo & Lionel Messi afoot, there are few players of Salah’s level on the …
Who is Donyell Malen and why might Liverpool be interested?

Who is Donyell Malen and why might Liverpool be interested?

For a team reportedly not in a position to add an attacker this summer, Liverpool are being linked with a lot of forwards.  The most persistent one seems to be to Donyell Malen. The 22-year-old is having the season of his career with 24 goals and seven assists across the Eredivisie and Europa League for PSV.  According to reports, his form hasn’t gone unnoticed and a host of clubs from across Europe are keeping tabs on the former Arsenal youngster. …
New Mohamed Salah Contract Needs To Be Liverpool's #1 Priority

New Mohamed Salah Contract Needs To Be Liverpool's #1 Priority

Mohamed Salah’s future at Liverpool has been speculated about frequently over the course of the last few months.  After Salah granted an interview to Spanish newspaper AS in December in which he didn’t immediately dismiss the prospect of one day playing for Real Madrid or Barcelona, many fans wondered whether the Egyptian was trying to engineer a move away from Anfield.  Others, however, including the Athletic’s Simon Hughes, are of the opinion that the Reds’ number 11 is keen to …
