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

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

Mission Accomplished as Liverpool Secure Top Four Finish

Listen very very carefully and you might hear the faint noise of Liverpool fans co-existing in relative harmony on social media. That’s because our final day win over Middlesbrough, securing fourth spot, meant that we weren’t busy ripping each other, FSG, Jurgen Klopp, James Milner or the referee to shreds. This oddly unsettling consensus probably won’t last long with transfer season around the corner and no doubt the knives will be whipped out again, but until then let’s try to embrace the weirdness.

Klopp Calls The Shots As Sakho Saga Ends

By Umarah Naz. The long running Mamadou Sakho saga finally came to a close on transfer deadline day, when Crystal Palace snapped up the French international on loan for the remainder of the season. Embed from Getty Images This ended six months of furious speculation that had divided the Reds everywhere. Sakho versus Jurgen Klopp has been battle that has intrigued and torn Liverpool fans in equal measure. Both men boast their own huge following which made the situation all the more complicated. On the one hand, there’s a centre-back who was building up somewhat of an iconic status around 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

Is Jürgen Klopp Above Criticism?

By Aaron Cawley, Jürgen Klopp took over as Liverpool manager on the 8th October 2015, replacing the sacked Brendan Rodgers. Embed from Getty Images To date Klopp has been manager of Liverpool for 75 top flight games, winning 36, drawing 24 and losing just 15 games. He currently has a win percentage of 48%.

Liverpool Red-Faced as Anfield Defence Crumbles

By Umarah Naz. For all it’s bad publicity, 2016 was in fact a fantastic year. For Liverpool Football Club at Anfield at least. Embed from Getty Images It had become a fortress again, and one where Liverpool had only lost one match in the entire year. It was a run that fans could be mightily proud of and had visiting teams on the back foot before a ball had even been kicked. After all, home form is key in any clubs progress. But all good runs must come to an end at some point and there’s no shame in losing continue reading

Lucas Leiva Leads Liverpool Into Next Round of the Cup

By Umarah Naz. When Lucas Leiva scores for Liverpool, you just know that the universe is a little off kilter. Embed from Getty Images The last time such a rare phenomenon occurred was 2316 days ago, in September 2010, when we were all a lot younger and a little less grey-haired. If you were strange enough to bet on a Lucas goal, it certainly wouldn’t be from a header. But that’s exactly what Plymouth Argyle had the misfortune (for them) to witness in Wednesday nights FA Cup replay at Home Park. The golden locks of the Reds captain flew into continue reading

By Umarah Naz. Tentative would be the best word to describe the majority of Liverpool fans feelings before the clash against Manchester United at Old Trafford on Sunday evening. The home side came into the crucial game on the back of a nine match winning streak, whilst the visitors remain winless in 2017 in all competitions. Winless but not defeated. Reds have enjoyed an excellent season so far, (with the occasional blip) but no one can deny that the three draws and one loss since beating Manchester City on New Years Eve have been a downer. Hence, the apprehension in continue reading
