Midfield in Shambles: Jurgen Klopp’s Conundrum The Liverpool Midfield: Past and Present They used to say fixtures were won and lost in midfield. That was never quite true in Jurgen Klopp’s successful Liverpool sides. The midfield rarely won matches but they made sure that the team didn’t lose. After a year of chaos in that […]

Curtis Jones: A Promising Rising Star It’s been a good few months for Curtis Jones. The 22-year-old was prominent in the 11-game unbeaten run that closed out the season and his performances at the Under-21s Euros have been impressive. If he played for Dortmund or Napoli the transfer ultras would be demanding that FSG buy […]

John W Henry’s famous tweet directed at Arsenal came to mind this week. “What do you think they’re smoking at the Emirates?” he wrote when the London club tried to prise Luis Suarez away from Anfield for £40 million plus £1 a decade ago. The Gunners may be making FSG’s top dog uncomfortable again. Arsenal’s […]

Trent Alexander-Arnold was excellent in midfield in England’s 7-0 thumping of North Macedonia. His performance did not answer any of the questions that swirl around the 24-year-old, though. Of course he can dominate the central areas against a team as bad as North Macedonia. Gareth Southgate deploying him as an out-and-out midfielder is hardly the […]

There was a sense of unfinished business when the season ended and the new fixture list underlined that. We’re less than two months away from the new campaign and the sooner the action starts again the better. Almost everyone at the club has something to prove. Last season was seriously substandard. There were too many […]

These are the worst two weeks of the year. The season’s over. Except it’s not. There are finals to be played — the FA Cup, the Champions League — and it doesn’t feel right when Liverpool are not involved. It’s even more galling when Manchester takes centre stage in what are two dead weeks for […]

The time is arriving for Fenway Sports Group to make a statement. No, not one of those long, boring open letters to fans — and I’m not available to write one any more — but a message of intent sent out through action. Here comes the fabled big summer in the transfer market. One thing […]

Why everyone hates Liverpool part 1: We’re going to boo the anthem. How stupid do the Premier League have to be to “strongly suggest” that clubs play God Save The King? They put the ball in the club’s court and there’s no way Liverpool can back out of it when every other fixture this weekend […]

Who is the most disappointing midfielder for Liverpool during the Jurgen Klopp era? The obvious answer is Naby Keita. But for me it’s been Thiago. Trent Alexander-Arnold’s performances over the last few games and especially at West Ham have shown the damage direct passing to the forwards can do. Everyone’s favourite floating full back has […]

Let’s put the six goals at Elland Road into context. Roy Hodgson’s Crystal Palace scored five there. OK, we’re starting with a cold shower. But Monday night was a step in the right direction. Quite a few of the team seemed to have their appetite for the game back. Diogo Jota’s two goals were a […]
