Dominic Solanke Needs a Championship Season

Dominic Solanke Needs a Championship Season

Liverpool FC’s first signing of the 2017 summer window left many supporters scratching their heads. Rumours of major incomings were being tossed all over social media, which made sense given the momentum that Jürgen Klopp was able to generate following the 2016-2017 season. The Reds were able to finish top-four in the EPL and were guaranteed Champions League for the 2017-2018 campaign, hopes were high. When the announcement that the Reds first signing was Dominic Solanke, the then 19-year-old academy …
A marriage of inconvenience, why Sturridge should stay

A marriage of inconvenience, why Sturridge should stay

After an exceptionally bizarre opening goal for Real Madrid in the Champions League Final, Liverpool were sent into ecstasy upon Sadio Mane’s equalizer. Madrid turned to their bench and tapped Gareth Bale who then scored a worldie, and followed that with a second that was as puzzling as Madrid’s first. Liverpool looked down their bench and saw … Dominic Solanke? A willing but rust-ridden Adam Lallana had already been summoned early on for the injured Mohammed Salah and that in …
Liverpool's Change of Striking Options for 2018-19

Liverpool's Change of Striking Options for 2018-19

With the World Cup in full swing, it’s been wonderfully quiet on the LFC front. Indeed, if the club needed to negotiate a bad story through a usually vigilant media, it could do no better than to do this of all months. The footballing world is caught up in Diego Maradona, VAR and Chris Sutton’s constant tone of confusion and disappointment. But one thing has come out this week. Danny Ings has announced, having received no guarantees about his first-team …
Why Divock Origi still has a Part to Play

Why Divock Origi still has a Part to Play

As Liverpool descend into the usual frenzy of rumours, speculation and leaning on a wall at Melwood (a trend that is worryingly scarce in the Reds’ transfer announcements these days), much has been made of their lack of reserve firepower; a situation amplified by the contract extension given to Rhian Brewster. Indeed, the news arrived alongside a clamour of “Give the kid a chance” with supporters wanting the next impromptu wonder-talent to make his mark on the Premier League. Even …
Three Young Strikers Battle for Klopp's Attention

Three Young Strikers Battle for Klopp's Attention

Three young forwards. One hoping for a second chance. One trying to hang on to his first. And, one still trying to break into the first team. DIVOCK ORIGI Did you ever go away, maybe for a summer holiday or a study abroad and upon your return, instead of getting that expected moment of passion from your significant other, you got that look that says, things have changed? Yeah, me neither, but if it had, I have to assume Divock …
LFC 2017/2018 Player Ratings - Part 2

LFC 2017/2018 Player Ratings - Part 2

After rating the defence, now it's time for midfield and attack. Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain - Average Post-match Rating 6.63, Writers' Season Rating 7.5 The Ox had a slow start to his Liverpool career, appearing mainly as a substitute in the begging of the season. He grew to be our best midfielder as the season progressed before being sidelined by an injury sustained against Roma. His banger against Man City will be on the highlight reel for years. The injury also casts …
Liverpool's Premier League Lineups - a Stats Analysis: Part 2

Liverpool's Premier League Lineups - a Stats Analysis: Part 2

In part 1 of the lineup analysis, I had a look at our goalkeepers and defense. Part 2 will focus on midfield and attack. The midfield Even after Karius' nightmare performance in Kiev, the midfield is still Liverpool's weakest line going into 2018/2019. Emre Can is likely leaving, James Milner will be 33, Jordan Henderson is injury prone and not consistent, the Ox is injured, Gini Wijnaldum has a tendency to disappear at times and Adam Lallana had the worst …
Liverpool's Premier League Lineups - A Stats Analysis: Part 1

Liverpool's Premier League Lineups - A Stats Analysis: Part 1

The Premier League season is over. Man City dominated the season like no club has done in recent (and not so recent) times. For Liverpool, the campaign was relatively successful with the team managing to qualify for the Champions League for the second straight time - something that hasn't happened since a certain Spaniard was at the helm of the club. The Reds conceded fewer than 40 goals for the first since 2010. And Mo Salah won every possible award …
Could Kiev Be A Shot In The Arm For Confident Reds?

Could Kiev Be A Shot In The Arm For Confident Reds?

Confidence is a funny thing. Just look at Dominic Solanke for example. Having struggled in front of goal all season, he took his goal against Brighton on the final day of the season like a world class striker, having played himself into a bit of form with some excellent play in the preceding 51 minutes. Similarly, look at how Christian Benteke has been struggling relentlessly at Crystal Palace. Benteke is clearly not a bad striker, having scored 66 Premier League …
Don't you dare doubt Dom Solanke

Don't you dare doubt Dom Solanke

Twenty-year-old Dom Solanke was signed last summer in a heist from Chelsea. The forward subsequently went on to take the U20 World Cup by storm, taking home the Golden Ball for the tournament’s most outstanding player. A PRESEASON OF PROMISE After showing flashes throughout Liverpool’s preseason schedule, there was a serious buzz around Solanke as it looked like the Reds had pulled one over on the Plastics once again. Daniel Sturridge had been brought in from Chelsea four years earlier …
