Rating Liverpool's Transfer Window

Rating Liverpool's Transfer Window

The new Premier League season is finally upon us, and after last season's changes, the transfer window slamming shut comes with it. Liverpool were the biggest spenders in England this summer, and fans and pundits alike are touting Klopp's men for a big season. But just how good was their transfer window? In: Following the Champions League final on the 26th May Reds fans weren't in the highest spirits. Salah's injury coupled with Karius' blunders (no matter what caused them), …
The Strange Case of Liverpool Fans Enjoying the Summer

The Strange Case of Liverpool Fans Enjoying the Summer

Jurgen Klopp has done it - he made us (most of us, including me) believers. For the first time in ages, I was able to enjoy my summer without worrying about Liverpool football club. And I have to admit it was strange. I didn't feel the need to read rumours, I didn't F5, didn't track flights or vans - I finally trust the people making the decisions. And that is the overwhelming feeling among the supporters, which has never been …
The FSG Spending Myth

The FSG Spending Myth

With Liverpool in the middle of a critically important transfer window (aren’t they always?), it seems like a perfect time to revisit a recurring myth amongst the Liverpool fanbase: FSG refuse to spend the money to compete for trophies. As an American Liverpool fan, I scoff at the notion that Fenway Sports Group is a bunch of cheapskates who do not like to put money into their teams. This is because FSG also just happens to own the Boston Red …
Colombia’s Yerry Mina Could be Perfect for Liverpool

Colombia’s Yerry Mina Could be Perfect for Liverpool

“That's him, strong, quick, both feet, can head like crazy, jumps through the roof. He's all you need.”
If someone was trying to convince you that Yerry Mina was the perfect modern-day centre-half, the above quote could conclude their argument. Mina has shone so far at the World Cup, avoiding the rustiness one would expect from someone who has barely seen the field since January (he has played 377 minutes since arriving at Barcelona), and Tuesday’s clash between …
Asensioooooo... is probably just looking for a new contract

Asensioooooo... is probably just looking for a new contract

Picking up the paper Wednesday morning in Madrid, the headline made me spit out my coffee... OK, tinto verano. “180 Milliones por Asensio,” read the top of the page. Unfortunately underneath that it read “MARCA,” which is not the most reliable publication in the world for transfer news. It falls somewhere above Don Balon and below your Uber driver's twitter feed on the reliability scale.
Liverpool? This is not the moment to talk about this. - Marco Asensio

Edwards' Golden Boy Image Depends On His Next Move

Edwards' Golden Boy Image Depends On His Next Move

Rewind a couple of weeks and Liverpool sporting director Michael Edwards was being suggested as the next Red to be knighted. Michael and Edward were the most common baby names on Merseyside. Local sculptors were providing sketches for bronze statues... of his laptop. The surprise signing of Brazilian midfielder, Fabinho, raised enthusiasm for the transfer window and the season to come to levels that haven’t been seen on Merseyside for a generation. The move was a brilliant one on the …
Why The Fume Over Liverpool's Summer?

Why The Fume Over Liverpool's Summer?

I write these words on 14th June - World Cup day. It would be too much to suggest that you’ve noticed my absence from this website but, trust me, I haven’t stroked a keyboard for a fortnight. There are many reasons for this - work has been busy, every weekend has been booked up and my new novel is almost ready for publication, but there’s a more dominant reason. I’ve had nothing to say. Seriously, there isn’t much to get …
Patience As The World Cup Disrupts LFC's Spending Spree

Patience As The World Cup Disrupts LFC's Spending Spree

For Liverpool fans it’s an exciting if slightly impatient time. Naby Keita and Fabinho are set to join the club on the 1st of July, symbolising a complete restructure in the club’s midfield. Fans are still expecting upgrades in every position – defence, midfield and attack – with the possibility of an upgrade on Loris Karius also in the works. But the issue is that this year, the transfer window is shorter. The World Cup is underway, and the window closes …
The Case for Xherdan Shaqiri

The Case for Xherdan Shaqiri

Following an impressive start to their summer with the signing of Fabinho and the impending arrival of Naby Keita, Liverpool have looked to bolster what was their most glaring weakness of the season, shining brightly in the eyes of every fan who watched their side go down to Real Madrid in Kiev. A lack of depth. Xherdan Shaqiri, having been relegated with Stoke this season, has emerged as the cut-price option to bolster the Reds’ attacking unit. Should they bring …
Liverpool FC - Getting Smarter

Liverpool FC - Getting Smarter

Liverpool football club is not at the top of the transfer food chain. It's an unpleasant fact but we need to accept it. There are clubs that are richer, stronger and can offer guarantees that LFC just can't. So it's natural that some players will use the famous red jersey as a stepping stone to get to supposedly better clubs. This has been happening for years. Even Steven Gerrard considered it at on point. Just in the past 10 years, …
