Liverpool's Transfer Policy: Does it Need Changing?

Liverpool's Transfer Policy: Does it Need Changing?

Football, as we are constantly being told, is a game that hovers on the ever-wobbly thread of a single decision. It is not, as we are also constantly being told, a game that is made by a single manager, but rather the circumstances which surround a decision made by a single manager. Yet it is these single, individual decisions which can form the basis – or indeed cast a swift change of fortune – when considering the entire season as …
Fed Up of Transition at Liverpool FC

Fed Up of Transition at Liverpool FC

Here we go again….another transitional period awaits Liverpool Football Club. In fact, for the past 20 years Liverpool Football Club and the word transition have been together hand in hand. Only seven months have passed since our title charge and we now need to replace our legendary captain in a few months time. We may also need to find ourselves a new manager considering a fourth place finish is looking a remote possibility based on our inconsistent form. Furthermore, the …
Brendan Rodgers: On Thin Ice

Brendan Rodgers: On Thin Ice

The weekend saw Liverpool's run of abject form continue, as they slumped to a fourth consecutive defeat, further extending their winless run in the Premier League. Not since an injury time own goal spared the Reds' blushes at Loftus Road on 19th October, have Liverpool recorded three points. In fact, a last gasp home win over Swansea, in the Capital One Cup, continues to be the Anfield side's only victory in the last seven - a run which has witnessed …

Rodgers vs The Committee - Is It Only A Matter Of Time?

We’re all experts when it comes to transfers aren’t we? Whether you are an armchair scout who watches hours of football or a more casual fan who relies on YouTube clips, the chances are you have an opinion on who you think the club should buy. As a result, you simply can’t understand why your club isn’t snapping up the players who you know would make all the difference to the team. Now there’s a school of thought that the …

Liverpool's Transfer Window Shopping

Less than a working week to go before the new season gets underway, and Liverpool have played their last two pre-season friendlies, in preparation for the big push. Games against Jürgen Klopp's Borussia Dortmund and Sean Dyche's Burnley, provided Brendan Rodgers's team with their final two tests, in a summer which has taken the Reds to Ireland and the USA, via Preston, before returning to Anfield. Two victories (4-0 against Dortmund at Anfield last Sunday, and 2-1 against Burnley behind …
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 …
Javi Manquillo | The Right Man For Right Back?

Javi Manquillo | The Right Man For Right Back?

Moves to help curb the frailties of the Liverpool defence seem to be gathering speed now, as Liverpool seem set to sign Atlético Madrid full back Javi Manquillo on a two year loan, only a matter of days after signing Dejan Lovren. For some, the name Manquillo will only bring back memories of the horrific neck injury he suffered in a recent Copa del Rey semi final against Real Madrid. For others, it will make them ask "who?", with the …

How Transfers Work, Sometimes Don't - and Why.

How Transfers Work, Sometimes Don't - and Why.

I've been thinking about writing something on this for a while, the way transfers work today - or don't in many cases, the seemingly infinite variables and how they differ from those those of yesteryear, and the carefree days of yore - if you believe in all that. There was however an obvious snag, in that although I'm middle-aged, well educated, well versed in all kinds of funding bidding, project management and acquisitions in the arts and education sector, I'm …
Why Bony and not Benzema?

Why Bony and not Benzema?

In the last few weeks I’ve sensed a real feeling of discontent regarding the calibre of players Liverpool have been linked to, Premiership names such as Wilfried Bony, Loic Remy and not with players like Karim Benzema and Gonzalo Higuain. I've seen a lot of people say things like "The players we have signed now are players we could have easily gotten without CL". First off, I don't think that is true and here’s why: Emre Can would have likely …
