The future's bright for Klopp's young mentality monsters

The future's bright for Klopp's young mentality monsters

Different team, same old story. To say Liverpool's progression to the Carabao Cup quarter-final was a rollercoaster would be a huge understatement after the 5-4 penalty win following a 5-5 draw against Arsenal at Anfield. It was a night where Klopp placed his faith in youth once more and Liverpool's stars of the future repaid that faith with a vibrant - if a little harem scarem - win. The Reds lined up with senior players such as Milner, Lallana, Oxlade-Chamberlain, …
Liverpool 5-5 Arsenal (5-4 pens): Who was man of the match?

Liverpool 5-5 Arsenal (5-4 pens): Who was man of the match?

It may only have been a League Cup Round of 16 tie, but this will go down as a classic. Liverpool's youth contingent, above all local lad Curtis Jones, will remember for it for the rest of their still-nascent careers. Twice in this match Liverpool were dealt hammerblows - falling 4-2 behind in catastrophic fashion before Joe Willock's wondergoal threatened to render their valiant comeback meaningless. But evidently the relentlessness, the unwavering belief which characterises the first-team is pervasive. Virtually …
Liverpool 5-5 Arsenal (5-4 pens) - Player Ratings as Mini Mentality Monsters advance in League Cup

Liverpool 5-5 Arsenal (5-4 pens) - Player Ratings as Mini Mentality Monsters advance in League Cup

Well, where do we start? Arsenal scored five goals at Anfield. Liverpool had a bunch of kids and a few experienced men on the pitch. This should never have ended like it did for the Gunners, but it was a tribute to the mentality Jurgen Klopp has built at this club. Liverpool's mentality these days just does not allow them to give up, and it was an outstanding finish to what can only be described as a mad night at …
Klopp Creating Liverpool Siege Mentality

Klopp Creating Liverpool Siege Mentality

Jurgen Klopp reneged on entering into the transfer market this summer to reinforce his first team. Despite links to several players, including Nicolas Pepe and Bruno Fernandes, the German elected to keep his powder dry and not add ready-made first-team options to his squad. Legitimate arguments were made that the European Champions needed to add depth to their squad in the left-back and forward line positions, in particular. But the Anfield club -- doubtlessly under instructions from their hug wielding …
Lovren Exit Could Pave The Way For Prospects

Lovren Exit Could Pave The Way For Prospects

Liverpool defender Dejan Lovren has continuously been linked with a move to Italy this summer. The Croatian centre half, 30, was a rumoured target for A.C. Milan, with the Rossoneri apparently eager to lend a central defender this summer. Now, however, it appears the San Siro side have competition for the former Southampton and Lyon man's signature from their Serie A rival's, AS Roma. According to a report in La Gazzetta Dello Sport, Roma have turned their attentions towards Lovren …
Wilson, Woodburn & Kent: What next for Liverpool's young trio?

Wilson, Woodburn & Kent: What next for Liverpool's young trio?

Liverpool wouldn't feel like Liverpool if supporters weren't airing some sort of grievance relating to the club, even at this wonderful time. The current grievance of choice is the Reds' summer transfer activity, which has seen them sign just one player so far: young Dutch centre-back Sepp van den Berg. There is a frustrating element to Liverpool's business, without question, with fans desperate for Jurgen Klopp's men to kick on and make the most of being European champions. While the …
Liverpool's wonderkid approach will lead to success

Liverpool's wonderkid approach will lead to success

It seems to the case every single year now but this summer transfer window had the potential to be the biggest in the clubs history. With Liverpool just needing to make subtle tweaks to a squad that amassed 97 points and a sixth European Cup, it was, on paper at least, a much easier task than in years gone by.  The Reds didn’t need a £60million-rated goalkeeper being courted by many of Europe’s elite. They didn’t need to part with …
Defender expected to sign for Reds from PEC Zwolle this week

Defender expected to sign for Reds from PEC Zwolle this week

PEC Zwolle's teenage defender Sepp van den Berg is expected to sign for Jurgen Klopp's Liverpool from the Dutch club later this week.

Van den Berg has made 22 appearances in the Dutch Eredivisie for PEC Zwolle, making his league debut for the club just three months after his 16th birthday. According to Matt Law in The Telegraph, Liverpool …
