Does Simon Mignolet Deserve To Be Liverpool's Number One?

Simon Mignolet is often a forlorn figure in the Liverpool team. He gets blamed by many fans when Liverpool lose a game, especially if the goal is conceded as a result of a set piece. I will admit I am not his biggest fan. I have written many an article about him, often criticising him for his indecision, the lack of confidence he gives those in front of him, and his failure to do the simple things right. When Mignolet was brought to Liverpool in the summer of 2013 then manager Brendan Rodgers claimed that Liverpool had bought “one of continue reading

Marko Grujic Can Be Liverpool's Very Own Naby Keita

Marko Grujic, he loves a good pre-season goal doesn’t he. He scored a sensational one against Barcelona last summer and another screamer against Tranmere this time around. At 21, the young Serbian international is facing a big season at Liverpool this season. Grujic was one of Klopp’s first signings as Liverpool manager when the club splashed out £5.1 million for him in January 2016 from Serbian side Red Star Belgrade. Instead of joining up with Liverpool straight away, Grujic stayed on with the Serbian club and help them win the Serbian league title. At 6’3 Grujic has the potential to continue reading

Why Signing Andy Robertson Would Improve Liverpool at Left Back

Andy Robertson, are you kidding me? He plays for Hull City. He cannot be the answer to Liverpool’s left back problems. Benjamin Mendy is available, what about Kieran Tierney, Luke Shaw, Gael Clichy; surely they all deserve to be in the Liverpool team ahead of a 23 year old Hull City player. The above are some arguments I have heard from Liverpool fans in relation to the rumour that Jurgen Klopp is looking at signing Robertson to solve Liverpool’s problematic left back problem. Embed from Getty Images   While fans would love to see Monaco’s Mendy come to Anfield, with continue reading

Mamadou Sakho - Should He Stay or Should He Go?

Does Mamadou Sakho deserve a second chance at Liverpool? Depending on whom you talk to, you will get varying replies. Some like myself will say hell yes, while others will say no — he’s burned his bridges and its time he moves on. I would like to see Jurgen Klopp, forgive and forget Sakho’s past and let bygones be bygones, but I simply cannot see that happening. The fact that Sakho is currently training away from the first team on his own so far this pre season speaks volumes. Klopp does not want him at Liverpool and will be more continue reading

Could Naby Keita Be The Perfect Midfield Partner For Emre Can?

When you think of Emre Can, what do you think of? The workhorse in midfield whose displays often go unnoticed by the majority of Liverpool fans? Or do you think of that goal he scored against Watford? If it is the latter I suggest you stop reading here. Can is one of those players that frustrates you when he plays. He can be described by fans as “world class” and “rubbish” all in the space of 90 minutes of football. For me though it is important that Liverpool do all they can to hold on to the young German midfielder continue reading

Virgil Van Dijk - The Never Ending Transfer Story

Virgil Van Dijk to Liverpool looks like it is back on. The club has made its peace with the Saints and they look like they are now prepared to do business with Jürgen Klopp and Liverpool. The pursuit of Van Dijk feels like it has been a never ending story. I am not sure if many remember the films of the same name from the early 90’s. The big white creature in it used to frighten the bejaysus out of me. There is little doubt that Liverpool are getting a top notch defender in Van Dijk, my only worry is continue reading

Liverpool FC and the Fickleness of Football Fandom

Something that always gives me a giggle when I hear it sung around Anfield is “We Are Liverpool Tra La La La La”. Liverpool FC includes the team, the manager, the owners, the players; heck even the tea lady is Liverpool FC. Then there is “You’ll Never Walk Alone“, the Liverpool anthem. Embed from Getty Images   I wonder if fans when singing the song,  actually think about the words and the meaning of them “When you walk, through a storm, hold your head up high, and don’t be afraid of the dark”. Liverpool fans are a fickle bunch, they continue reading

Jurgen Klopp's New Transfer Priorities in Liverpool's Summer of Intent

So this summer is being called Liverpool’s summer of intent by those in media circles. Liverpool have already signed Egyptian international Mohammad Salah from Roma for a fee in the region of €31 million and, depending on who you listen to, the club look set to break their current transfer record at least twice more this season. According to the ever reliable ITK’s on Twitter, Liverpool manager Jürgen Klopp is tired of the FSG policy of buying young and trying to develop players in to world beaters, and wants players who can come in and have an instant impact on continue reading

Ezequiel Garay - An Alternative to Virgil Van Dijk for Liverpool?

Liverpool have been chasing Southampton’s Virgil Van Dijk for the last six or so months, this is no secret. At the start of this month, people on Twitter claimed the deal was done and Liverpool were happy to pay the £60 million Southampton demanded for their player. As the saga dragged on, Southampton threw a spanner in to the transfer saga by reporting Liverpool to the FA for tapping up Van Dijk. This caused Liverpool to put a halt to their plans to sign the Dutch defender. Embed from Getty Images   This, as you would expect caused uproar on continue reading

Do Liverpool Fans' Transfer Expectations Match Reality?

Woohoo, the summer transfer window is now in full swing and Liverpool, much to the disgust of their fans, have made one signing: Dominic Solanke. Who I hear you ask? Only the player of the tournament in the recent U-20 World Cup. Hardly the start to the window fans were expecting, when you consider Virgil Van Dijk was a done deal a few weeks ago and was expected to be doing The Lean instead of promoting the new Southampton kit. Mohamed Salah was another deal allegedly done weeks ago, and was going to be the second player this summer arriving continue reading
