Prior to the capture of Virgil Van Dijk for a world record transfer fee for a defender and the following summer spending spree which saw four new faces walk through the Shankly gates, Michael Edwards and co conducted much savvier business via calculated risks including the now irreplaceable Mo Salah.

Liverpool's Long-Term Planning

Liverpool's Long-Term Planning

Football teams can enjoy success in one of two ways: an immediate gain via trophies that eventually peter out into a transitional phase where the club must effectively ‘go again’ or a long-term vision, a five-year plan of progression towards consistent triumph.

As good as Brendan Rodgers’ side were that year, benefitting from the electric attacking combination of Luis Suarez …

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.
