Radio Silence Of Window A Sign Of Things To Come At Liverpool FC?

Radio Silence Of Window A Sign Of Things To Come At Liverpool FC?

Radio silence makes everyone nervous, particularly when it comes to transfers. Having allowed Coutinho to make his highly anticipated big-money move to Barcelona midway through the season with the top-four, FA Cup and Champions League still all to play for represents a huge risk from Jurgen Klopp and the owners. Naturally, that's sent fans into meltdown over who could possibly replace the Brazilian's verve and creativity in the No.10 role. Such unease hasn't been helped by the stark lack of …
The Presence Of Virgil van Dijk Will Lift Those Around Him

The Presence Of Virgil van Dijk Will Lift Those Around Him

Something that stands out immediately when you look at Virgil van Dijk is the authority he possesses. There is a real aura about him. It is something that has always been evident with the Rolls Royce centre-back, whether it be as a youngster at FC Groningen, someone way ahead of the rest at Celtic or during an outstanding three-year spell at Southampton. The 26-year-old has only made one appearance for Liverpool, so going overboard can risk future mocking, but he …

Why Liverpool will flourish without Phil Coutinho

Why Liverpool will flourish without Phil Coutinho

I want to open this piece by pointing out that Phillipe Coutinho was my favourite player at Liverpool. For the last two or three seasons now, Phil has been Liverpool’s best player and has developed into a real, real talent. The fact that I wrote an article about him two weeks ago saying he’s the best player in the league despite him well and truly losing his spot as my favourite LFC player through his own antics, just indicates how …

Observations as a Virgil Van Strike beats Everton

Observations as a Virgil Van Strike beats Everton

TELL YER MA, YER MA, TO WIPE AWAY ALL YOUR TEARS, NO TROPHIES FOR 20 YEARS, TELL YEAR MA, YER MA. Thanks to big Virgil Van Dijk, Liverpool fans will be able to sing that for another year yet.

Who should partner Van Dijk?

Who should partner Van Dijk?

With the record £75 million signing of Dutch international defender Virgil Van Dijk, Liverpool have taken major steps towards addressing the defensive frailties that have plagued Jurgen Klopp’s side throughout his tenure. Whilst having a world record defender is great, Liverpool can’t expect Van Dijk to solve the team’s defensive problems alone. Almost every team in history that has had a solid defensive record has built their foundations upon a centre back pairing that remains almost ever-present throughout the season. …
Have we underestimated Liverpool's squad depth?

Have we underestimated Liverpool's squad depth?

Over the last month or so we have seen Jurgen Klopp increasingly trust his squad which has seen him rotate a number of his first choice eleven in and out of the side. With the added demands of European football, it was clear Klopp was going to have to utilise his squad players a lot more this season but it should also highlight to us all how the German is building a team which is capable of challenging on all …
