Time to forget the transfer window | The real stuff starts now

Time to forget the transfer window | The real stuff starts now

Last season was a slog. It was a wonderful, beautiful slog, but it was a slog. With Manchester City so unrelenting, Liverpool had to be at peak form to get close to their final goal of the league title, and even then, we fell - even if just slightly - short. A Champions League winners medal and more incredible memories left fans with a delicious taste in the mouth, but if you’re like me, you were ready for a break. …
The real reason Liverpool shouldn't sign Philippe Coutinho

The real reason Liverpool shouldn't sign Philippe Coutinho

Philippe Coutinho’s rumoured availability has resulted in all logic going right out of the window.  With Liverpool failing to add to their squad this summer, fans are desperate to bring him in back on loan. Not just to give the Reds some much needed attacking depth, but to keep the Brazilian maestro away from rivals with Manchester United, Arsenal and Spurs all reportedly keen on the Barcelona attacker.  It’s a powerplay. One adopted by various Premier League clubs throughout the …
Do Liverpool Know How to be Frontrunners?

Do Liverpool Know How to be Frontrunners?

If you could have one movie character share Michael Edwards’ air-conditioning and have a chat across his desk, who would it be? I’ll pause for a moment while you ponder the possibilities. The right answer is, Ben Affleck. No, not Batman. Edwards doesn’t need to be roughed up just yet. Maybe A.J. from Armageddon could have a heart to heart with our sporting director and let him know just how important it is for us that he makes a signing, …
Liverpool's wonderkid approach will lead to success

Liverpool's wonderkid approach will lead to success

It seems to the case every single year now but this summer transfer window had the potential to be the biggest in the clubs history. With Liverpool just needing to make subtle tweaks to a squad that amassed 97 points and a sixth European Cup, it was, on paper at least, a much easier task than in years gone by.  The Reds didn’t need a £60million-rated goalkeeper being courted by many of Europe’s elite. They didn’t need to part with …
Why taking Coutinho back makes a lot of sense

Why taking Coutinho back makes a lot of sense

It's the transfer rumour that just won't go away. The will he, won't he. The shall we, shan't we. Does the heart rule the head or is it the other way around. The summer saga (for want of a better word) for Liverpool fans this summer is whether their fallen hero, Philippe Coutinho, will make a dramatic return to Anfield after what has proven to be an ill-fated 18 months at Barcelona. After raking in the capital as a result …
Werner vs Pepe - who is the better fit for Liverpool?

Werner vs Pepe - who is the better fit for Liverpool?

Not long ago now, Timo Werner was the man the entire Liverpool fanbase wanted the Reds to sign. However, with interest from Bayern Munich well publicised and RB Leipzig seemingly not keen on selling the German international on the cheap despite his contract situation, interest in him waned and a new player replaced him as desirable number one.  Reports in France claimed Jurgen Klopp and the recruitment team at Anfield liked Lille’s Nicolas Pepe. His 22 goal in Ligue 1 …
Liverpool Must Not Underestimate The Importance Of Investment This Summer

Liverpool Must Not Underestimate The Importance Of Investment This Summer

It's been a fairly interesting pre-season so far. Premier League champions Manchester City have also been heavily linked with Spanish international Rodri, a 23-year-old central midfielder currently learning his trade at Atletico Madrid. Another of Liverpool's rivals, Manchester United, completed the signing of right-back Aaron Wan Bissaka from Crystal Palace - who has drawn many comparisons to the Reds' own full-back Alexander Arnold. The Red Devils have also been linked with Leicester centre-back Harry Maguire, who could be another to …
Why a lack of signings is a positive sign of the times

Why a lack of signings is a positive sign of the times

As we turn over another page in our calendars and find ourselves in July, it's hard to believe just quite the position Liverpool are in. If you'd have told any Red when they were flipping the yearly planners over to July 2018 that, in 12 months time, Liverpool would be the reigning champions of Europe after missing out on the Premier League title by a solitary point, I'm sure the vast majority would have sold their soul to make that …
Liverpool Uncovered: Tier 1 Transfer Tales

Liverpool Uncovered: Tier 1 Transfer Tales

Sometimes the people that care about you the most tell you lies. Yes. It’s true. Or, I might be lying right now, because I do care, dear reader. I really do... Sometimes my wife tells me that my hair looks like it’s growing back or that I’ll eventually fit into my pants again. My parents would tell me my pet fish just liked to sleep upside-down, yet Sharky always seemed suspiciously refreshed after the pet-store opened. The people we trust …
Origi Stay Signals Liverpool's Transfer Intent

Origi Stay Signals Liverpool's Transfer Intent

Divock Origi will be staying at Anfield for at least one more year. Whilst it remains unclear whether the Belgian will sign a new deal with the Reds, although Liverpool are certainly hoping that he will, what is clear is that no offers for Origi will be entertained in this window, even if that means losing the player on a free next summer. There are a number of interesting aspects to this story. The first thing to note is that …
