Liverpool's Wishlist: Mario Götze & Two Other Attacking Targets

Liverpool's Wishlist: Mario Götze & Two Other Attacking Targets

Amidst a few troubles as of late for Jürgen Klopp’s redmen (that phrase in itself gives this writer more motivation for this article than any article written under Brendan Rodgers), the need for goals ranks highest of all. Well, perhaps second to injuries, but at least goals are something that can be altered to favour the excitable German domineering the sidelines. Christian Benteke is the biggest issue of the lot; he clearly doesn’t belong anywhere near a Jürgen Klopp Liverpool …
January is Boom or Bust for Liverpool

January is Boom or Bust for Liverpool

Just one month ago I wrote on this parish about my excitement for the festive period. It wasn't just the thought of excessive drinking and mounds of mince pies that made me giddy, but the possibility of Liverpool building some momentum. The Reds had just come off the back of three successive victories and I was full of confidence. "We’ve overcome our tricky set of away fixtures and are just six points off the top," I wrote. "Drink it in." …
The More Things Change, the More they Stay the Same for Liverpool FC

The More Things Change, the More they Stay the Same for Liverpool FC

Seven points from three games represented an excellent start to the new season for Liverpool Football Club and, its embattled manager, Brendan Rodgers. A battling if blunt display against Stoke, followed by an unconvincing showing against Bournemouth had delivered 6 points from 6, before the Reds turned in an impressive display away at the Emirates. Things were looking decent-ish, at least in terms of results, and the performances seemed to be improving. Step forward West Ham at Anfield! Saturday's absolute …

"Premier League Proven" Proves NOTHING!

Nothing quite grinds Liverpool fans' gears like the words “Outstanding” or “Character”. However, that doesn’t stop Brendan Rodgers from using them at every opportunity presented to him. The reason why those phrases get fans backs up against the wall is because they’re simply not true. We are not outstanding, haven’t been all season. We certainly don’t show character when the chips are down or when we’ve played a high-pressure game; we’ve bottled it and that's putting it politely. This season …
The Risks of Signing Premier League Proven Players

The Risks of Signing Premier League Proven Players

Premier League proven vs Foreign League signings is a debate that continues to rage on. The transfer window fans the flame of this topic and the signings made, or not made, during those windows keep this topic of debate relevant until the next transfer window is upon us. This isn't a new concept, not by a long shot. It's just a newly coined term. 'Premier League proven'. Premier League proven doesn't actually mean you've proven anything in the Premier League, …
One Week Remaining: Do We Need A Striker?

One Week Remaining: Do We Need A Striker?

Paramount. Critical. Fundamental. A Necessity. Each one, and more, of these many adjectives were used to describe Liverpool's desperate need for a striker following the sale of ex-icon Luis Suarez in the summer. The 75 million pound price agreed may be a tad lower than what Reds' fans were anticipating, however we could not afford to bite off more than we can chew, especially where a player who has been involved in three previous 'biting incidents' is concerned. Rodgers responded by bringing in two …
Can Liverpool Afford A World Class Forward?

Can Liverpool Afford A World Class Forward?

This Summer Liverpool has been spending money like it’s going out of fashion. With the unfortunate sale of Luis Suarez to Barcelona, increased TV broadcasting revenue, new commercial deals and champion’s league money the club seems to have more purchasing power than ever before. As we stand, a week before the Premier League kicks off, Liverpool has added 6 players to their ranks and by all accounts are soon to add their seventh with the signing of Moreno. Despite all …

A Crazy Few Days... (Written after January Transfer Window)

It was late Thursday night, that the brilliant Tony Barrett, was reporting that Chelsea had made a bid, and we had rejected it. I was sat in work, with a copy of the Times printing another trusted article, while my colleagues had copies of The S*n, Daily Fail, and every other made up story going. I was brushing it under the carpet. We rejected Chelsea's bid, we move on, right? We have been in this situation before, haven't we? …
