Should Liverpool Have Signed a Defender in January?

Should Liverpool Have Signed a Defender in January?

Well, yes. As it stands right now, Joe Gomez’s injury cloud has only darkened – perhaps turning into a dreaded storm cloud should his spell on the sidelines span further than Liverpool’s tie against Bayern Munich in February – and Liverpool are still without an actual right-back. All while still remaining firmly on top of the Premier League table. If Liverpool wish to stay there, they may need a functioning defence. As it stands, they’re standing on a giant’s shoulders, …
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, …
Liverpool And The Coutinho Dilemma

Liverpool And The Coutinho Dilemma

I don’t like people messing about with Liverpool Football Club. In the same way others think that ancient scriptures should not be tampered with and that the word of the deities to which they sing should be unbendable, I am of the mind that no one should meddle with the central ethos of the club to further their own means. Of course, this is the textbook definition of zealotry and though I find it bitterly distasteful in others, my own …
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 …
Do Liverpool need a Christmas Caulker?

Do Liverpool need a Christmas Caulker?

To a casual observer, Steven Caulker's six-month loan move to Liverpool in January 2016 represented the most bizarre of transfers. It's very rare that top-six Premier League teams actually bring players in on loan, rather than sending them away, especially from a team - Queens Park Rangers in this case - floundering in the Championship. However, the deal made some sort of sense when the context was added. Caulker, a phoenix from the ashes With Martin Skrtel and Dejan Lovren …
Brexit Babes Boom in Value as January Approaches

Brexit Babes Boom in Value as January Approaches

Brexit!  And you thought you would be able to avoid politics in the warm, comfortable cocoon that is Premier League football.  Any small nudge to the freedom of movement principle could have a nuclear bomb sized impact on England’s top division.  Liverpool start a maximum of 5 UK born players for any given match these days.  Of all of the players who have seen the pitch this season, 12 players are foreign-born while 7 originate from the British Isles.  For …
Midfield Reinforcements For Liverpool: Pre-contract Targets To Add Creativity

Midfield Reinforcements For Liverpool: Pre-contract Targets To Add Creativity

Liverpool's midfield benefitted from £100m in investment over the summer with the surprise signing of Monaco's Fabinho, and the arrival of Naby Keita - signed from RBL last summer. However, with the injury to Oxlade-Chamberlain, we've still had to suffer through games with Gini Wijnaldum, James Milner and Jordan Henderson in the engine room. As we've seen in recent games, the three from last season's team are able to provide a solid midfield to counter teams like PSG and Man …
Radio Silence Of Window A Sign Of Things To Come At Liverpool FC?

Radio Silence Of Window A Sign Of Things To Come At Liverpool FC?

Radio silence makes everyone nervous, particularly when it comes to transfers. Having allowed Coutinho to make his highly anticipated big-money move to Barcelona midway through the season with the top-four, FA Cup and Champions League still all to play for represents a huge risk from Jurgen Klopp and the owners. Naturally, that's sent fans into meltdown over who could possibly replace the Brazilian's verve and creativity in the No.10 role. Such unease hasn't been helped by the stark lack of …
Goretzka's Pro-Active Approach Makes Him An Ideal Signing For Liverpool

Goretzka's Pro-Active Approach Makes Him An Ideal Signing For Liverpool

There’s been a lot of rumours floating about in recent weeks and few seem to be making as much noise as Leon Goretzka to Liverpool. With 12 months remaining on his contract, the Schalke midfielder is being scouted left, right and centre as attentions slowly begin to turn to the January window. Despite securing the services of Naby Keita for the 2018 season, Jurgen Klopp’s side could do with midfield reinforcements in January, with a lack of ingenuity and creativity …
