Curtis Jones - An Unfortunate Opportunity

Curtis Jones - An Unfortunate Opportunity

Opportunity can be a key instance in any elite form of sport. To be able to take advantage of certain scenarios (in order to achieve personal gain), can make a career in top level football. Patience, readiness, desire and a single-minded determination to succeed can carry one through to greatness, and within this moment, you have to be ready. When Gini Wijnaldum departed this summer, there was an overwhelming sense of loss, given his enormous impact. Names were thrown about, …
Fabinho - A World Class Extension

Fabinho - A World Class Extension

Extending contracts within a transfer window can be underwhelming for many fans. The need to see a marquee signing arrive can become obsessive, to the point of panic. The new shiny toy can be marvelled at, but we must never forget those who got Liverpool to where they are, and where they strive to be. When world class teams achieve great things, the most important task is to ensure the squad is not torn down. In Liverpool’s case, they have …
Will Curtis Jones fill the Georginio Wijnaldum void?

Will Curtis Jones fill the Georginio Wijnaldum void?

Midfielder Curtis Jones enjoyed a breakout season for Liverpool in the 2020/21 campaign, filling the void amid a spate of injuries on Merseyside. The 20-year-old now has the chance to build on his exploits by becoming a first-team regular under Jurgen Klopp. Georginio Wijnaldum’s move to Paris Saint-Germain has opened up a vacancy for a box-to-box midfielder, and Jones has all the attributes to succeed. In his 34 appearances last season, Jones scored four goals in all competitions, including the …

Why Saul makes more sense than Tielemans

Why Saul makes more sense than Tielemans

Liverpool have been linked with a lot of midfielders this summer. There’s a new name every week and then, after a while, you see the same ones reappearing on the list. Youri Tielemans was once again back on the agenda this weekend after reports emerged claiming he’s top of the club’s summer shortlist.  According to Sacha Tavolieri, the Belgian maestro is interested in a move to Anfield and Jurgen Klopp is a long-term admirer of the player.  Earlier on in …
Why Andy Robertson is Undroppable

Why Andy Robertson is Undroppable

When Andy Robertson was signed from newly relegated Hull City, there was a collective air of uncertainty. The left back spot had become (like so many other positions when Klopp arrived) a problem one. With Albert Moreno being swapped in and out with James Milner prior to Robbo’s signing, it was certainly an area that needed addressing. Hull City and Liverpool managed a trade type deal, that was surely separated for accountancy purposes. The overall deal saw Kevin Stewart leave …
Could Kalvin Phillips thrive for Liverpool?

Could Kalvin Phillips thrive for Liverpool?

Euro 2020 is in full swing, and while the thought of even more football felt unappealing after a gruelling season, it has actually been entertaining so far. Two of the best individual performances of the tournament have come from Gini Wijnaldum and Kalvin Phillips, both of whom excelled for the Netherlands and England, respectively. It was painful seeing Wijnaldum impress so much on Sunday night, showing the world how talented he is in a more attack-minded role and giving Reds …
Michael Edwards - The Regeneration

Michael Edwards - The Regeneration

For years, the director of football was a nuisance, an obstacle and a hinderance to most managers throughout the Premier League. The mere thought that any old school manager would need either help, guidance or another body to aid the club football was sneered upon, and often dismissed. FSG have had their failings, that is not in doubt , yet it is the overall process from their tenure that should be applauded. They have learned, progressed, installed a working structure …
Gini Wijnaldum's legacy at Liverpool

Gini Wijnaldum's legacy at Liverpool

Gini Wijnaldum and Sadio Mane kickstarted the Jurgen Klopp era at Liverpool. They were the two big signings during the German’s first summer at Anfield.  Both played a significant part in getting the club into the top four during the 2016/17 campaign. The pair had a key role in the Reds reaching the 2017/18 Champions League final. They repeated the feat the year after, with Liverpool claiming their sixth European Cup in Madrid. A year later, the duo helped the …
Liverpool And Addressing The Unsexy Role In Their Team

Liverpool And Addressing The Unsexy Role In Their Team

Georginio Wijnaldum's long goodbye finally ended in recent days when it was confirmed that Dutchman would be joining Paris Saint Germain. After 179 appearances in Liverpool red, Wijnaldum -- whose contract at the Anfield club expires at the end of this month -- will earn a hefty payday in Paris. Rumours abound regarding who the Reds will choose to replace the durable former Newcastle linchpin in the centre of their midfield. Several names have been linked, including Leicester City's Youri …
