Why Liverpool Can Win The League (Redux)

Why Liverpool Can Win The League (Redux)

Last summer I wrote a piece on how I thought it was possible Liverpool could win the Premier League title. I felt most of the points that I made in that article were largely valid, although of course things didn’t pan out the way we hoped. Overall, the lack of a centre-back signing, Phil Coutinho turning into a huge snake and Man City going full cheat mode were the big reasons we didn’t end up winning the league, but here …
Xherdone - Shaqiri is a Red

Xherdone - Shaqiri is a Red

So Xherdan Shaqiri is a Liverpool player. This has been one that has threatened to run for most of the window, but in the end, LFC wrapped it up with little fuss and little mess, courtesy of a £13m release clause in his contract after Stoke were relegated from the Premier League last season. It’s been a strange summer for Liverpool, one that started in earnest with Fabinho’s signing on top of the already incoming Naby Keita, threatening to completely …
Xherdan Shaqiri: A Multi-Faceted Low Risk, High Reward Buy

Xherdan Shaqiri: A Multi-Faceted Low Risk, High Reward Buy

With England now out of the World Cup and the impending realisation that football will in fact not be coming home, attentions will return to the summer transfer window with fans desperate for further incomings. Naby Keita and Fabinho drew widespread optimism amongst Liverpool fans, enhancing belief that Klopp can secure his first piece of silverware and mount a real challenge on the Premier League title. Shaqiri meanwhile, seems to have polarised opinions; a mixture of buoyancy and despondency, the …
Why Not Shaqiri?

Why Not Shaqiri?

Ever since Liverpool were first linked with Xherdan Shaqiri, I have found myself one of a large portion of Liverpool fans who were at once disappointed with and confused by the prospective signing of the Swiss international. Six years ago this would have been an exciting signing, with Shaqiri the prospect in high demand across Europe. Indeed, if the Liverpool of six years ago was here today, this might still be an exciting signing.  But it’s not summer 2012 and …
The FSG Spending Myth

The FSG Spending Myth

With Liverpool in the middle of a critically important transfer window (aren’t they always?), it seems like a perfect time to revisit a recurring myth amongst the Liverpool fanbase: FSG refuse to spend the money to compete for trophies. As an American Liverpool fan, I scoff at the notion that Fenway Sports Group is a bunch of cheapskates who do not like to put money into their teams. This is because FSG also just happens to own the Boston Red …
A Long and Red-Empty Summer

A Long and Red-Empty Summer

It’s only been four weeks since Liverpool lost the Champions League final, and yet I miss football. I miss Mo Salah and Sadio Mané and Bobby Firmino all playing together and not trudging through games for their international sides. I miss big Virgil bossing the defence. I miss the Scottish Roberto Carlos. I miss Liverpool. At first, you almost feel relieved. A weekend off. A chance to breathe. A few weeks of being able to plan your social life – …
The Case for Xherdan Shaqiri

The Case for Xherdan Shaqiri

Following an impressive start to their summer with the signing of Fabinho and the impending arrival of Naby Keita, Liverpool have looked to bolster what was their most glaring weakness of the season, shining brightly in the eyes of every fan who watched their side go down to Real Madrid in Kiev. A lack of depth. Xherdan Shaqiri, having been relegated with Stoke this season, has emerged as the cut-price option to bolster the Reds’ attacking unit. Should they bring …
Alternative Fekirs: Where should Liverpool turn to next?

Alternative Fekirs: Where should Liverpool turn to next?

It was definitely going to be Thursday, then absolutely Friday, then without question Saturday… but at 8pm Saturday night, the Nabil Fekir saga came to an abrupt halt. Depending on which party you believe, Liverpool had reservations once they had the opportunity to review the details of Fekir’s knee reconstructions from two years prior or Liverpool were simply using the knee as an excuse to try and renegotiate a lower fee at the last minute. Regardless of who you believe, …
