Profiling Liverpool's Squad Depth Ahead of Next Season

Profiling Liverpool's Squad Depth Ahead of Next Season

After Liverpool secured qualification into the Champions league for next season, attention turned to the summer transfer window and who the Reds would be signing to both improve and bolster their squad heading into next season. One of Liverpool’s main weaknesses this season has been their lack of squad depth, which has been highlighted following injuries to key players such as Coutinho, Mane and Lallana. When the Reds have everyone fit they are as good as any team in the …
FSG: Shape Up or Ship Out

FSG: Shape Up or Ship Out

It's happened again... it's happened agai-ai-ain... Tottenham Hotspur, it's happened again!
So goes the now famous Arsenal song that was aimed at Spurs fans every season for two decades, when the day arrived each year, and it was confirmed that, yet again, their North London rivals wouldn't finish above them in the Premier League - what became known as St. Totteringham's Day. Clearly, that song was rendered irrelevant the season just gone when Spurs finished some eleven points …

Van Dijk Saga Embarrassing For All Involved

Van Dijk Saga Embarrassing For All Involved

What started as a hugely optimistic week in Liverpool’s summer transfer plans has come crashing down in the most embarrassing fashion. On Monday, Liverpool were hopeful of agreeing a fee for Mohamed Salah, with the Egyptian high on the list of priorities to add some extra fire power to Jurgen’s team ahead of a new campaign. With 19 goals this season in all competitions, Salah would bring acceleration and flair to the table - two ideal assets in breaking down …
Van Dijk and the Consequences of High Wages

Van Dijk and the Consequences of High Wages

So the word on the street is that Liverpool will have to offer, and are offering, £200k a week in order to secure the signature of Southampton central-defender Virgil Van Dijk. And if it’s true, and if the club can get the deal over the line, neither of which are 100% certain just yet, then that will be a massive statement of intent from FSG. But whilst there are a vast number of reasons to be excited about this deal, …
Alexandre Lacazette: Under the Microscope

Alexandre Lacazette: Under the Microscope

Alexandre Lacazette, who appeared bound for Atletico Madrid, before a transfer ban scuppered those plans, very recently claimed that the Premier League is a:
'Great league, with interesting teams'.
Perhaps the most interesting of all teams right now is Liverpool FC, a club 0dds-on to secure the services of £50-60 million rated Virgil Van Dijk, and headed by Jürgen Klopp. However, would Lacazette suit Liverpool, and if so, what would he bring to the club? For this analysis it would …
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, …
