Liverpool Need To Shore Up The Defence Or Win Nothing

Liverpool Need To Shore Up The Defence Or Win Nothing

The dust may have settled after Liverpool’s 2-2 draw with Sevilla, but the fume is still very much alive and well. Another slick attacking display was ruined by defensive incompetence, with the La Liga outfit scoring with both shots on target at Anfield. How many times does that seem to happen these days? Whether it be Dejan Lovren continuing to alienate himself from the fanbase, Jordan Henderson not protecting the back-line or Emre Can proving to be erratic - this …
Liverpool Not Signing A Centre-Back Is Unforgivable

Liverpool Not Signing A Centre-Back Is Unforgivable

Liverpool have made plenty of glaring errors throughout history, both on and off the pitch. Allowing Tom Hicks and George Gillett to buy the club was a horrific decision, in hindsight, and appointing Roy Hodgson was ineptitude of the highest order. The list goes on. In terms of transfer business, not bringing in a top class centre-back this summer has to be one of worst mistakes for a very long time. I’m a fairly laid-back fan, but every time I …
Virgil Van Dijk - The Fake News Saga

Virgil Van Dijk - The Fake News Saga

Ok Reds, I can't take it any more. Three months of shallow and brainless analysis of the Virgil Van Dijk transfer saga and I've had enough. The information in the public domain simply doesn't make sense. There is no way Klopp chooses to enter this season with the present choice of centre-backs, does he? At least that is something we can all agree on. So what's up? What is the truth behind the headlines? Well the time has come for …
Does Klopp Want To Prove A Point Or Win Trophies?

Does Klopp Want To Prove A Point Or Win Trophies?

Heavy Metal. Sometimes it gives you an adrenaline rush. Sometimes it blows your ear-drums out. Heavy Metal Football. Most of the time it has been great. Certainly entertaining. Competitive enough to get very close to silverware and has returned us to the Champions League. Against Manchester City the Reds came out with a formation made up of two centre-backs, one notoriously attack-minded full-back, another who is seen as a future attacking midfielder, and six other outfield players who were either …
Pressure on Joe Gomez to Shine at Centre-Back

Pressure on Joe Gomez to Shine at Centre-Back

Every Liverpool supporter has their own take on the Reds’ summer transfer window, with some pleased with the business done and others left disillusioned about missing out on certain key targets. Whatever your stance, one thing that seems unforgivable is not bringing in at least one new centre-back, with a move for Virgil van Dijk fizzling out in rather pathetic fashion. It has been a problem for so long now, and with other areas of the pitch looking so strong, …
Liverpool's Phenomenal Summer Transfer Window

Liverpool's Phenomenal Summer Transfer Window

So the transfer window is finally over. After months of scrutiny, Liverpool have their squad for at least the front half of the season and plausibly the entire campaign, given Jurgen Klopp’s January transfer record. So, with Mo Salah, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, Andy Robertson, Dominic Solanke all coming in, not to mention Naby Keita next summer, and despite a mad scramble, no Virgil Van Dijk and no Thomas Lemar, how do we as supporters feel about this? Not overly happy seems …
Liverpool's Summer Window: Through the Looking Glass

Liverpool's Summer Window: Through the Looking Glass

The transfer window is not like any other window. When you open most windows, you know what you will be getting. If it’s a wet day, raindrops will slant their way into the room. If it’s a breezy day, you know the curtains will rustle but the room will feel much fresher. But given that Liverpool qualified for the Champions League last season for only the second time during the reign of current owners Fenway Sports Group, did the Americans, …
Liverpool's Transfer Window: A Missed Opportunity

Liverpool's Transfer Window: A Missed Opportunity

What a curious transfer window; after snapping up Robertson, attempting to convince Virgil Van Dijk to join, and registering an interest in Naby Keïta, the Liverpool transfer front went silent. Then, suddenly after trouncing Arsenal, Michael Edwards and his team sprung into life, wrapping up a seemingly dead deal in securing the services of Naby Keïta for the coming season, on a bargain transfer, before moving onto Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain shortly afterward. With a day to go, expectations of Lemar and …
Naby Keita is a Red - Take a Bow, Michael Edwards

Naby Keita is a Red - Take a Bow, Michael Edwards

So Naby Keita is a Red. In sensational style, it was announced on Monday and confirmed on Tuesday morning by the club, that a deal had been struck to bring main summer target Naby Keita to the club next summer in a deal worth his £48m release clause plus a premium for signing him early, believed to be between £3m and £7m. And what a deal. Now I’m not here to wax lyrical about Keita. Plenty of other people have …
Welcome to Liverpool (In 2018), Naby Keita!

Welcome to Liverpool (In 2018), Naby Keita!

We've got him, he's ours. I feel like a child who has just wandered downstairs on Christmas Day, and so should you. Naby Keita is a Liverpool player. A Red. A Scouser. Admittedly, many people - myself included - hadn't heard of him this time last year. But, if a week is a long time in politics, then a year is a long time in football. Indeed, politics has played some role in the transfer, with the rare way in …
