Quiet Transfer Window Shows Reds' Growth

Quiet Transfer Window Shows Reds' Growth

I hate transfer windows. I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again. A solid third of the year – and that’s just when it’s open – dedicated to incessant droning about every player under the sun, consistent links and, worst of all, complaining about things that haven’t even happened yet. “Why on earth haven’t Liverpool signed any players yet?” bemoans Steve, 14, from Huddersfield, on 1st July (this is a random example so apologies if your name is Steve, …
Why Liverpool Were Wrong To Loan Nathaniel Clyne

Why Liverpool Were Wrong To Loan Nathaniel Clyne

Today, it was announced that Liverpool had agreed a deal with Bournemouth to loan out Nathaniel Clyne until the end of the season. The deal will not come with an option to buy for the south coast club – with the deal merely understood to be put in place for the 27-year-old to play more first-team football. Clyne joined Liverpool in July 2015, who were then managed by Brendan Rodgers. Joining from Southampton for a fee worth £12.5million, many Reds …
How Michael Edwards has ruined the Transfer Window for me

How Michael Edwards has ruined the Transfer Window for me

The year has come to an end. As we move into the new year, it is supposed to be an exciting time for us football fans - the games are coming in thick and fast over this festive period, and there is more opportunity for us to revel in what Jurgen's Mighty Reds are accomplishing on the pitch. For me, there was always an added reason to look forward to New Year's Eve - it would bring the Winter Transfer …
Why Liverpool Should Return for Julian Draxler

Why Liverpool Should Return for Julian Draxler

Following a superbly eye-catching Confederations Cup, the stock of one former German wunderkind turned peripheral star seems to have not been higher. Julian Draxler, formerly of Schalke and VfLWolfsburg, is a name hitting the rumour mill once again, with the news that Paris Saint-Germain are set to continue on their path to utter and total supremacy via the purchase of Monaco’s Kylian Mbappe. A forward arsenal of Mbappé, Neymar, Edinson Cavani, Àngel Di Maria, Lucas Moura, Goncalo Guedes and Javier …
Does Andy Robertson join as Liverpool's starting left-back?

Does Andy Robertson join as Liverpool's starting left-back?

As Liverpool confirmed the signing of Andy Robertson from Hull City on Friday afternoon, there was widespread relief amongst the fan-base. Given the Scot's impressive form for Hull and potential to grow, the feeling is there that Liverpool may have finally found the solution to their left-back issue. We've seen the likes of Dossena, Konchesky, Flanagan and Moreno all unsuccessfully occupy the starting position at the club, to the extent that we've ended up using midfielder James Milner there. Surely …
Mbad Idea: Liverpool Already Have Their Number 9

Mbad Idea: Liverpool Already Have Their Number 9

Reports of Liverpool’s chase for Kylian Mbappe have lingered throughout May and June.  The Reds have been tracking him for quite a while and have not been put off by his rocketing notoriety or his price-tag.  Good for them.  Let’s be honest, if he were signed it would change perceptions among supporters and rivals alike and Jurgen Klopp would find an effective way to use him. However, with Mané a key addition last year and Salah brought into the fold last …
Time For Firmino To Break The Curse Of Liverpool’s No.9 Shirt

Time For Firmino To Break The Curse Of Liverpool’s No.9 Shirt

There are a few iconic shirt numbers that you associate with Liverpool Football Club, with both No. 7 and No. 9 very much the standouts. James Milner currently occupies the former once worn majestically by Kenny Dalglish and Luis Suarez, much to the dismay of many who want a more glamorous player donning it, but the latter has been vacant for a year. That is until this week, when it was confirmed that Roberto Firmino would take the honour, with the …
Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain Would Be A Shrewd Piece of Business

Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain Would Be A Shrewd Piece of Business

With Arsenal stalling on a new deal for Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, Liverpool are among a number of clubs linked with a summer move. That’s caused somewhat of a stir from the fan-base, with the reaction varying from apprehension to excitement. If the Ox decides to seek pastures new, Netbet have Liverpool as the favourites to land the attacker. Joining Southampton at the age of seven, Chamberlain propelled himself into the first-team picture in 2010, making his debut at the age of 16. An …
Just Who Is Mohamed Salah?

Just Who Is Mohamed Salah?

It’s always struck me that the LFC footballing world knows more about obscure players than I ever could. Time and again a name will come up and there’ll be sage nods around the fans of an ‘Ah yes, played 40 times for Cape Coast Ebusua Dwarfs in 2015. Good player’ nature while I’m left scratching my head in confusion. This could be due to a lack of curiosity on my part or, most likely, inherent laziness but, when thousands of …
Scouting Luan - The Silky Brazilian

Scouting Luan - The Silky Brazilian

The rumours are coming thick and fast, and while Liverpool stumbles their way towards one form of European football – preferably the Champions League – Jürgen Klopp has spoken of his resolve to improve his team significantly in the summer. Included in that improvement would be a backup attacker, who’s able to fill in when the likes of Firmino, Mané and Origi are unable to maintain the demanding schedule of a team making strides in Europe. Much will be made …
