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

Luis Suarez: He's Not The Messiah, He's A Very Naughty Boy

By Aaron Cawley. For those of you who have watched Monty Python’s Life of Brian, you’ll get the title of this particular piece. Who’s the messiah? Well it’s Luis Suarez. The admiration from Liverpool fans for the Barcelona forward sickens me. Suarez is a great player, that, there is no doubt of, but his carry on and behaviour in his last two seasons at Liverpool was nothing short of despicable. Embed from Getty Images From courting a move to Arsenal, to his racist comment to Manchester United player Patrice Evra and the whole fiasco that followed that. Then there was continue reading

Dejan Lovren's New Contract: Why John? Why?

By Aaron Cawley. Throughout their illustrious history, Liverpool have always had top quality centre backs. Players like Sami Hyypia, Phil Thompson, Alan Hansen, Jamie Carragher, Phil Neal and Stéphane Henchoz, all invoke memories of sturdy Liverpool defences that didn’t get turned over too easily. Embed from Getty Images Liverpool have missed a strong pillar at the heart of its defence since Jamie Carragher retired in 2013, and over the last four years they’ve become some what of a leaky ship in defence. Brendan Rodgers attempted to plug the leaks when he brought in Mamadou Sakho and Dejan Lovren, but with the continue reading

FSG at Liverpool: Should They Stay Or Should They Go?

By Aaron Cawley. If you are of a certain generation, you will remember a song from The Clash entitled, “Should I Stay Or Should I Go?”. But what does this song have to do with football? At the moment, there is a building faction within the Liverpool fan base that want current owners, FSG, out of the club. And I’m quite sure John W Henry has at least once thought about those famous song lyrics in difficult times. Embed from Getty Images Being a Liverpool fan in the current climate is difficult. We have just had a January where the continue reading

Are Jurgen Klopp's Liverpool Just Another One Man Team?

By Aaron Cawley. Rafa Benitez had Fernando Torres, Brendan Rodgers had Luis Suarez and now Jürgen Klopp has Sadio Mané. What do all these players have in common? Well, without them in the various teams Liverpool don’t aren’t the same entity. Embed from Getty Images Look at how bad Liverpool became after Torres and Suarez were sold. No goal threat and regularly finishing outside the European positions. Getting rid of Suarez eventually cost Rodgers his job at Liverpool and while Kenny Dalglish came in to Liverpool with Torres leaving, if he been able to hold on to the Spaniard I continue reading

Is Daniel Sturridge Still Important To Liverpool?

By Aaron Cawley. Daniel Sturridge, the fastest ever player to score fifty goals for Liverpool. The player who spends more time on the treatment table than on the pitch, yet still has a massive following amongst fans. Embed from Getty Images This following is something I don’t understand. For a little over fourteen months, I have said it is time for Liverpool to cash in on the injury-prone striker. He doesn’t fit the Jürgen Klopp model as he doesn’t seem to have the ability or desire to press from the front as Klopp expects his forward players to do. This season Sturridge continue reading

Those Pesky Day Trippers and the Anfield Atmosphere Problem

The atmosphere at Anfield is shit at the moment, this is something Jürgen Klopp has attempted to change on more then on occasion by trying to inspire fans to get behind the team. But according to some fans the reason that the atmosphere is so flat is solely down to pesky day trippers. Embed from Getty Images You know the ones. They fly into Liverpool every match-weekend, spending an extraordinary amount of money to get to games, and when they do they get there they’re the ones who have taken tickets from real Liverpool fans, those who live in and continue reading

Where Has It All Gone Wrong For Liverpool

By Aaron Cawley. At the start of the season, if you had asked any Liverpool fan what they expected they would have said a decent cup run and a Champions League place. So far, Liverpool have had that decent cup run, getting knocked out of the EFL Cup semi-final to Southampton, losing 2-0 on aggregate. In the league, Liverpool currently sit fourth, two points ahead of fifth placed Manchester City and four points ahead of Manchester United, who are down in sixth. Embed from Getty Images But it seems things are starting to unravel on the pitch. Liverpool are without a continue reading
