Are We Seeing the Rebirth of the Player Manager?

The illustrious career of Kenny Dalglish at Liverpool Football Club has seen his name emblazoned on the terraces at Anfield and sung throughout the Kop with endless fervour.

Is Michael Edwards as Important to LFC as Jurgen Klopp?

Why Virgil van Dijk Is Liverpool's Most Important Player

Such is the level of quality within Liverpool's newly-built squad, there are various players that could lay claim to being the Reds' most important individual heading into 2018/19. Mo Salah is the obvious name that immediately springs to mind, considering the Egyptian's 44 goals last season catapulted him to superstar status. Without his devastating impact in the final third, Liverpool would suddenly cut a far less potent force. The subtle magic of Roberto Firmino also makes him one of the …

Beautiful. The season had emotions galore: elation, devastation, ruefulness, and now nostalgia. But that nostalgia actually masks something that fans are …

Lascelles or Tarkowski: Who's the Better Fit?

The wheels of Liverpool’s busy summer have already begun spinning. Even as they head to a Champions League final, rumours have been rife regarding those who will arrive in the summer: The Independent’s Miguel Delaney reported that Michael Edwards has been tasked with finding a centre-half partner for Liverpool’s perceived most important signing in recent memory, Virgil van Dijk. The first two names out of the block share a nationality, and were both unfortunate to not make Gareth Southgate’s twenty-three-man …
