Why German Star Isn't A Good Fit For Liverpool

Why German Star Isn't A Good Fit For Liverpool

The coronavirus pandemic has postponed silly season, for now, but every now and then a rumour that makes you do a double-take emerges. The latest one was that Liverpool wanted to sign Manchester City’s Leroy Sane.  Now, the Reds did try to bring the Germany international to Merseyside prior to his switch to Manchester but missed out and instead signed Sadio Mane. If reports are anything to go by, Jurgen Klopp is a fan of his compatriot. However, despite Sport …
Why Liverpool Should Avoid Cantwell Punt

Why Liverpool Should Avoid Cantwell Punt

Liverpool love a good punt on a player from a relegated side. In three of the last four summer's, the Reds have salvaged some gems from the wreckage of sides destined for the Championship. First, Georginio Wijnaldum and Andrew Robertson -- two players who arrived with relatively inexpensive price-tags and who have now established themselves as key players -- arrived from Newcastle and Hull respectively in the summers of 2016 and 2017. Then in the summer of 2018, Xherdan Shaqiri …
The perfect Andrew Robertson replacement

The perfect Andrew Robertson replacement

Max Clark was a surprise name recently linked with a move to Liverpool. The 24-year-old came through the ranks at Hull City and replaced Andrew Robertson in the starting XI following the Scotland captain’s move to Anfield. Prior to the 2017/18 campaign, Clark spent time on loan with Cambridge United. He stint as first-choice left-back for the Tigers was short-lived and in the summer of 2018 he moved to Vitesse.  He battled against former Manchester United full-back Alexander Buttner for …
Slick Sancho Could Offer Liverpool New Edge

Slick Sancho Could Offer Liverpool New Edge

The talk of Jadon Sancho Liverpool has heightened in the past few days. The 19 year old England international winger joined Borussia Dortmund from Manchester City in the summer of 2017 and, after making his Bundesliga debut in January 2018, has established himself as one of the most exciting young talents in Europe at the Westfalenstadion.  Sancho excelled in the 18/19 season, his first full senior campaign, assisting goals a monstrous 17 times in the Bundesliga, as well as netting …
Gomez: The Reason LFC Don't Need a Superstar Centre-Back

Gomez: The Reason LFC Don't Need a Superstar Centre-Back

I found myself watching England in the UEFA Nations League third-place playoff last weekend - a pretty sad state of affairs. When your Sunday looks empty on the social front and no other 'proper' football is on, it's (just about) better than nothing, though. The standout figure as the Three Lions edged out Xherdan Shaqiri's Switzerland was Trent Alexander-Arnold, who put together a masterful performance highlighting why he is one of the world's most exciting full-backs. It was no surprise …
The key areas Klopp will strengthen in the transfer window

The key areas Klopp will strengthen in the transfer window

Alas, it's here: silly season. The transfer rumour mill is in full swing and the window hasn't even been open for a week. It will undoubtedly be another crucial window for Jürgen Klopp and Liverpool, as they look to cement their place as contenders to Manchester City's Premier League throne. Rumours are already rife about who will and won't be joining the Reds over the coming weeks, and whether it will or won't be a busy window again this year. …
Five Strikers That Would Suit Liverpool

Five Strikers That Would Suit Liverpool

It seems clear that Jürgen Klopp has a plan. In the last six to twelve months, Liverpool have toyed with a 4-2-3-1 system – the kind that the German used at Dortmund regularly. With the midfield stagnating in the 4-3-3 and Liverpool’s dazzling forwards looking starved of creativity, it makes sense to withdraw Roberto Firmino to his favoured role as the #10 and look to play with a more traditional, clinical striker. This striker would have to be able to …
Lucas Paquetá: Can Liverpool Catch the Carioca Isco?

Lucas Paquetá: Can Liverpool Catch the Carioca Isco?

Last week I wrote an article laying out the possible signings that Liverpool could consider as an alternative to Nabil Fekir. All of them had drawbacks, but my ultimate conclusion was that Thomas Lemar still made the most sense after a year of trying to sign him from Monaco. In the days since, Lemar has signed for Atletico. My second choice would have been Malcom, but he is in negotiations with Inter that are, in all likelihood, too far advanced …
Why Rúben Neves Would Be Liverpool's Midfield Conductor

Why Rúben Neves Would Be Liverpool's Midfield Conductor

There will always be archetypes that footballers fit into. Creators, destroyers, poachers, leaders, midfield maestros. That “maestro” trope will be overused, as is the tendency of footballing media. It’s natural to categorise, but what exactly does that trope mean? Maestro? Is he a magic-wielding passer of the ball? Is he tricky with his feet, guiding defenders one way while fully intending to go the other? Does he possess trickery or guile? Is he selfish or will he play others in? …
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 …
