5 Takeaways From Liverpool's Preseason So Far

Preseason is at the same time very exciting and mind-numbingly boring. Everyone is eager to see the players back in the shirt and on the pitch. No matter how the last season ended, there’s always the promise that THIS season will be EVEN better. And then the latest preseason match starts with 22 guys running around some trying hard, some not, and you remember, oh yeah, these games are just exhibitions with a few moments of entertainment sprinkled around some …
When - and Where - Will We See Woodburn?

When - and Where - Will We See Woodburn?

Ben Woodburn is a player that all Reds fans are heavily invested in. The Wales international burst onto the scene back in 2016, after some impressive performances in pre-season. In November of the same year, Woodburn made his Reds debut against Sunderland, becoming the clubs third youngest debutant. Three days later Woodburn scored his first senior goal against Leeds United in the EFL Cup quarter-final, and in doing so became Liverpool's youngest ever goalscorer, bettering Michael Owen's record by 98 …

Liverpool U23 boss Critchley on Woodburn's "Wow" moment

To describe teenage Liverpool forward Ben Woodburn as a promising youngster with a great deal more to learn might seem an understatement following his exploits for Wales - but that is exactly how he will see it himself, according to one of his first and most recent coaches.

Is Liverpool's Squad Good Enough to Contend This Season?

Is Liverpool's Squad Good Enough to Contend This Season?

‘This is our year.’ It’s been declared year after year by many Liverpool fans and we’ve been on the receiving end of a lot of stick from rival fans, due to the glaring fact we haven’t won the league since 1990, nor any trophy since 2012. However, in recent weeks I have sensed more pessimism from fans taking to social media to express their concerns about the lack of strengthening the positions we need most. With less than a week …
Why Liverpool Still Need Another Winger

Why Liverpool Still Need Another Winger

Liverpool have already added one natural wide player to their squad – the exceptionally fast and talented Mo Salah, who appears to be the sort of world class game-changing signing that FSG and Klopp have promised us this summer. However, despite bringing in a winger, there remains a solid argument that Liverpool remain a winger short – a feeling that will only have been emphasised with the news that both Sheyi Ojo and Ryan Kent are going out on loan. …
Will Klopp Trust Liverpool's Youngsters to Deliver Next Season?

Will Klopp Trust Liverpool's Youngsters to Deliver Next Season?

Having watched Klopp very closely over the past year and a half, it has become clear that there is one trait that he values above anything else and that's trust. A player can have all the ability in the world but if the German doesn't trust him to fit into his system and to play the way he wants them to then you simply won't have much of a future at Anfield. Klopp is so particular about both his defensive …
Liverpool's Two Ways To Build A Squad

Liverpool's Two Ways To Build A Squad

Transfers in football often seem reasonably straightforward. Building a squad is easy - you just isolate areas in your squad where you need another player, either because you’re a player short or because your strongest player in that area is a weak link in the squad. Then... you buy a suitable player. But over the last few years, building a genuine squad has proved problematic for Liverpool. Partly because they’ve bought poorly, partly because there was a lot of deadwood …
Player Ratings as Liverpool sweep past West Ham

Player Ratings as Liverpool sweep past West Ham

ONE. MORE. WIN. REDS. Excellent performance, great team selection from Klopp. Liverpool could have fourth wrapped up before Middlesbrough, but that's unlikely. We can still get third, but let's not get carried away just yet. Simon Mignolet - 6 - Early save from Fernandes set the tone for another good day, wasn't tested too much but helped himself in that regard with another number of good punches from crosses and corners. Nathaniel Clyne - 6 - Beaten early on a …
