What if...Liverpool Actually Signed Konoplyanka?

What if...Liverpool Actually Signed Konoplyanka?

Regret’s a funny thing, isn’t it? When any Liverpool fan sees the words “What if?” their thoughts could very easily be drawn back to any of the misfortunes befalling the club since the famed night in Istanbul, over fourteen years ago. That, to any reasonable Red, was the night their team sold their soul to the devil. The last fourteen years has been the payment, staggered in instalments. Of course, they endured Hicks and Gillett; that was perilous and depressing …
Sterling has nobody to blame but himself...this time

Sterling has nobody to blame but himself...this time

Let's dispel a myth to begin with. The general consensus is that all Liverpool supporters detest Raheem Sterling, never forgiving him for the manner in which he left in 2015. That is well wide of the mark. I don't just speak for myself when I say I've got plenty of time for Sterling, even though he handled his exit badly after that depressing 2014/15 season. Not only a world-class footballer, the 24-year-old has done lots of good off the pitch …
Did Liverpool miss a trick in not re-signing Coutinho?

Did Liverpool miss a trick in not re-signing Coutinho?

Liverpool fans this summer were divided in their desire to see Phillipe Coutinho back at the club. Some argued that it would bring welcome quality and depth to Liverpool’s attack, whilst others argued that the club had moved on from the Brazilian and that his manner of departure was unforgivable. Emotions aside, though, and I see a clear trick missed by Liverpool in not bringing him back.  Minutes played The workload of Liverpool’s renowned front three has been a huge …
Positives For Reds Despite Community Shield Defeat

Positives For Reds Despite Community Shield Defeat

Liverpool lost the seasonal curtain-raiser, the Community Shield, 5-4 on penalties to Manchester City at Wembley on Sunday after the game ended 1-1 in normal time. A powerful Joel Matip header cancelled out Raheem Sterling's opener, in a game that -- despite some fans' indifference to the value of the Community Shield -- neither side, judging by the tempo and commitment exhibited by both teams, would have wanted to lose. Despite the "loss", there were many positives for Jurgen Klopp …
Thank You, Daniel Sturridge

Thank You, Daniel Sturridge

I'll never forget the first time I spoke about Daniel Sturridge at length. I was on holiday with my family in 2008, and in true father-son fashion a footballing debate was going on. My dad was adamant that the state of English football was in a bad way - he was probably right, in hindsight - with no talented teenagers coming through at time when the 'Golden Generation' were not getting any younger. I spent my time singling out two …

Leon Bailey and that

Leon Bailey and that "Concrete Interest"

With the breaking news this morning that Bailey himself confirmed Liverpool have a “concrete interest” in him, I decided to follow on from my pieces on Fekir & Pulisic with a look at the Leverkusen star, Leon Bailey. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VfzKDAPd9VY Above: Reliable Bundesliga journalist, Old Gregg, hinting at a move to Liverpool. My mind wandered this morning to that exact moment I fell in love with him, as a player. I had seen him a few times, mostly in cameos or a …
Finding Faux-kir | The Search for Fekir Alternatives

Finding Faux-kir | The Search for Fekir Alternatives

It was either him or us. Someone was going to get hurt here. Fekir or us Liverpool fans. Either his knee would collapse, or the deal to sign him would. He had already been interviewed for the site, done the photo shoot, sold his house in France, told his ex-colleagues what he really thought of them and cancelled his milk order. Then Liverpool pulled the plug. At least that is how I believe it played out based on some reactions …
Liverpool FC - Getting Smarter

Liverpool FC - Getting Smarter

Liverpool football club is not at the top of the transfer food chain. It's an unpleasant fact but we need to accept it. There are clubs that are richer, stronger and can offer guarantees that LFC just can't. So it's natural that some players will use the famous red jersey as a stepping stone to get to supposedly better clubs. This has been happening for years. Even Steven Gerrard considered it at on point. Just in the past 10 years, …
