Should Milner Be Left Back On The Bench?

Should Milner Be Left Back On The Bench?

Hey, you! Yes, you - the person refreshing their Twitter feed incessantly with a daft grin plastered all over their face. Now, I realise you're all excited by the apparently imminent arrival of Virgil Van Dijk and Mohamed Salah, but weren't you the one that was having a good old moan a couple of days ago about the club's lack of ambition? Didn't you compose a string of strongly worded Facebook posts about how Liverpool's unwillingness to spend a fortune …
Scouting Virgil van Dijk: What would he bring to Liverpool?

Scouting Virgil van Dijk: What would he bring to Liverpool?

If you’re somehow new to supporting Liverpool Football Club and have dived into the realm of hilarity, chaos and speculation, then you’re a brave soul indeed. Yet, the overriding sense of optimism coming out of the 2016/17 amongst the Reds’ fanbase has manifested itself in the targets: Liverpool are aiming high, and look pretty confident in realising those hefty ambitions. One of their greatest challenges of the transfer window, however, will be prying Virgil van Dijk from the greedy hands …
Liverpool FC Need to Adapt to Modern Transfer Market

Liverpool FC Need to Adapt to Modern Transfer Market

For the second time since 2008/09, Liverpool FC qualified for the Champions League. The club appears to finally on the right track to achieving its long-term ambitions of first returning to the top table of European football, and second, to win titles as part of that. Essential to meeting these objectives consistently is the signing of new players, for the starting XI, which would help Liverpool progress from a team that just pipped Arsenal to fourth spot, to a consistent title …
How The Perfect Liverpool Squad Should Look Next Season

How The Perfect Liverpool Squad Should Look Next Season

Another season has been and gone, but unlike so many at Liverpool since they decided to stop winning everything, 2016/17 has left us with a feeling of great warmth. The Reds’ title challenge may have fizzled out after a very promising first four months, but sealing Champions League qualification has to be seen as a huge positive. It is very easy for Liverpool fans to have a sense of entitlement, given the club’s incredible history both domestically and in Europe, …
Transfer Time: A Brief Cautionary Tale

Transfer Time: A Brief Cautionary Tale

It's really far more than anyone should be expected to bear, you know. There is no way to manoeuvre the minefield that is transfer speculation and retain one's mental equilibrium. I like to think I'm a comparatively calm man, having had my stoicism tested by the slings and arrows over the years, but there's something about the unique cocktail of Liverpool's uncertain fate, the huge investment we have all placed in the importance of Champions League football and the attendant …
Observations from Liverpool's Defeat to Southampton

Observations from Liverpool's Defeat to Southampton

Liverpool's horrid start to 2017 continued with yet another defeat. The Reds have now won just one of their seven matches since the turn of the year, missing out on a return to Wembley after a frustrating night against a weakened Southampton at Anfield. The visitors were without the injured Virgil Van Dijk and started 22-year-old Jack Stephens alongside Maya Yoshida. It should have been like lambs to the slaughter for the likes of Firmino, Coutinho and Sturridge, but the …
EFL Cup Semi-Final Preview: Reds Look to Bounce Back

EFL Cup Semi-Final Preview: Reds Look to Bounce Back

It has not been the best start to 2017 for Jurgen Klopp's Liverpool. In the 2 games that the Reds have played, they have had two draws. The first one - a 2-2 stalemate at Sunderland - might be excusable, given that it kicked off less than 48 hours after a taxing game against Manchester City. But Sunday's goalless draw in the FA Cup against Plymouth Argyle is inexcusable. Even with the much-changed team, Liverpool should be beating Plymouth. So, …
Defenders for Liverpool to Target in January

Defenders for Liverpool to Target in January

Virgil van Dijk Perhaps the most obvious choice; given Liverpool’s affinity with buying Southampton players as of late; but Virgil van Dijk may well be the one key Southampton player Liverpool actually spend money wisely on. Of course, Sadio Mane and Nathanial Clyne were shrewd, if not slightly over-priced; but van Dijk has the potential to fix a glaring problem in Liverpool’s lineup; having a partner for Joel Matip that can be relied upon. The travesty that occurred against Bournemouth …
Liverpool - A Squad in Crisis?

Liverpool - A Squad in Crisis?

A mere few weeks ago Liverpool were well and truly flying, yet a flurry of injuries, including one to Phillipe Coutinho, suddenly dampened the mood around Anfield, and the recent humiliating defeat to Bournemouth only sought to worsen the atmosphere surrounding Liverpool FC. But with the January transfer window approaching, and with Mané soon to depart for the African Cup of Nations, Liverpool, for a club that appeared blessed with attacking talent, suddenly seem desperately short. Yet, a League Cup …
