Liverpool positive PR spin is actually a negative

Liverpool positive PR spin is actually a negative

Sometimes, the PR offensive used by the club to justify something can be a little tiring. In the aftermath of missing out on Timo Werner, journalists close to the club opted to use what would’ve been the total cost of the deal to bring the Germany international to Anfield as opposed to just the transfer fee.  In truth, the cost of a transfer should be known. It should be used like transfer fees are used so there’s a little more …
Werner and FSG: Why It's Okay To Be Somewhere In The Middle

Werner and FSG: Why It's Okay To Be Somewhere In The Middle

It has been a while. With no football on the radar during the COVID-19 shutdown, Liverpool supporters have been reduced to reminiscing about lifting their ninteenth league title in July. With the Reds looking certain to win the Premier League at a canter this season after thirty years of hurt, the other positive developments for the club came off the pitch, in the transfer market. There has always been one player who appears to be a dead cert to sign …
The FSG perspective: Why signing Werner was never going to happen

The FSG perspective: Why signing Werner was never going to happen

In the two years of nearly unbridled on-the-pitch success that have hailed since the devastation of the Champions League final in Kyiv, the phenomenon of the LFC transfer saga meltdown is one that has been a distant and bitter memory – serving solely as a timely reminder of just how sweet the present-day existence of a Liverpool fan has been. However, the prolonged period of online peacetime was abruptly ended last night, as a hailstorm of fury exploded across the …
The Time for Timo Werner is over

The Time for Timo Werner is over

Liverpool’s love affair with Timo Werner seems to be over. The £50m transfer looked to be nailed on just a few months ago, with Liverpool prepared to spend the money on a player who was worth every penny of it. Werner was the dream transfer, the player who could offer an alternative to the current front three, and give Liverpool genuine rotation up front, as well as being young enough to lead the line once Salah, Mané and Firmino have …
Bayer Leverkusen wonderkid could be perfect for Liverpool

Bayer Leverkusen wonderkid could be perfect for Liverpool

Since the return of the Bundesliga, all eyes have been on Kai Havertz and Timo Werner. Despite the increased scrutiny, the two Germans have responded well to this. The former has four goals in two matches while the latter netted a hattrick against Mainz after putting on a creative clinic against SC Freiburg.  They’ve justified the hype and then some. But they aren’t the only two players who have really impressed since the return of football. Havertz casts a large …

Why Red Bull Fountain Is Perfect To Quench Liverpool Thirst

The rumour's linking Red Bull Leipzig's Timo Werner with a transfer to Liverpool shows no signs of slowing down. After the rapid forward fired a hattrick in Leipzig's 5-0 crushing win away to Mainz on Sunday, journalist Raphael Honigstein -- the author of the Jurgen Klopp biography, Bring The Noise -- confirmed that Klopp was in touch with Werner via video conference over Easter, which added a heavy measure of kerosene to that particular transfer gossip fire. It now appears that, despite …
Why Timo Werner is perfect for Liverpool

Why Timo Werner is perfect for Liverpool

Everyone knows all about Timo Werner.  He’s been perpetually linked with a move to Liverpool ever since his debut season with RB Leipzig. Over recent weeks, the noise has increased and it feels as though it’s a matter of when and not if the German international makes the switch to Merseyside.  However, many aren’t appreciating just how useful Werner would be for Liverpool. He’s being pigeonholed as a goalscorer and nothing more. That isn’t necessarily a negative, some players build …
Bobby Firmino vs Timo Werner: Can Klopp Have His Cake and Eat It with Forward Duo?

Bobby Firmino vs Timo Werner: Can Klopp Have His Cake and Eat It with Forward Duo?

When a legend speaks, it usually pays to listen. So when former Liverpool midfield maestro Didi Hamann weighed in on the Timo Werner debate, there were plenty of ears lent to the German’s opinion. Speaking on The Football Show with Jamie Redknapp and Jamie Carragher, Hamann queried where his compatriot would fit into Jurgen Klopp’s starting eleven, and echoed the sentiments of many who believe that a link-up frontman like Bobby Firmino – rather than an out-and-out striker like Werner …

3 positions Liverpool need to strengthen this summer to become invincible

Football should soon return from its current state of paralysis and Liverpool will be given the opportunity to finally wrap-up their first Premier League title. The Reds currently sit a staggering 25 points clear of Manchester City at the top of the table having lost just one of their 29 league games so it's just a matter of when, not if, Liverpool secure the title and end their 30-year drought. Liverpool are already 5/6 favourites with the bookmakers to retain …

Why Liverpool might be interested in Victor Osimhen

You can tell football is close to a return. Transfer rumours are slowly starting to emerge with greater regularity. The usual suspects have been on the agenda for Liverpool with Timo Werner and his release clause dominating talk. Mario Gotze and his contract situation has seen him linked with a reunion with Jurgen Klopp. But perhaps the most interesting report over recent days has been the one claiming the table toppers are interested in Lille forward Victor Osimhen.  The 21-year-old …
