Piotr Zielinski - A Look at Liverpool's Midfield Target

Piotr Zielinski - A Look at Liverpool's Midfield Target

The Liverpool part of social media was abuzz on the Monday evening following on from the League Cup defeat. Many of the journalists that are considered to be reliable when it comes to Liverpool news were all reporting transfer links that you'd usually find on a Liverpool fans' FIFA career save. If you're a cynic, which many Liverpool fans are, you may believe the club are desperate for some positive PR and being linked with the likes of ter Stegen …
Bargain Hunting - 10 Players able to sign pre-contracts in January

Bargain Hunting - 10 Players able to sign pre-contracts in January

January is a time for bargains. An entire month of deals and offers as opposed to the overhyped single day even known as Black Friday. You often hear Premier League managers talk about there being no value in the January market but that's just not true. Players that are out of contract in the summer are able to sign pre-contract agreements with clubs in January. Clubs may not be able to address their issues short term in January but there …
The Next One - Who will replace Mourinho?

The Next One - Who will replace Mourinho?

Roman Abramovich finally put Jose Mourinho out of his misery on Thursday afternoon and dismissed him as Chelsea manager. The club will of course spin it as a mutual parting of ways but that's a bit like when you break up with your partner and say it was mutual to save face. A Mourinho-less Chelsea has been on the cards for some time. The early season blip hasn't come to an end, we're half way through the season and Chelsea …
Mignolet Costing More Than Goals - Compared to Cech, Hart & Lloris

Mignolet Costing More Than Goals - Compared to Cech, Hart & Lloris

Simon Mignolet should've punched Benteke. Let's be blunt here, Simon Mingolet should have cleared out Christian Benteke prior to West Brom scoring their first on Sunday. He was unchallenged as he went for the punch with only the Liverpool number nine in his proximity. If he's preventing him getting a clean connection on the ball then he should be going through Benteke. It's not pretty but needs must. I'm certain Christian would forgive a knee in the back from his …
Guilty Pleasure of a Liverpool fan: Ruud Van Nistelrooy

Guilty Pleasure of a Liverpool fan: Ruud Van Nistelrooy

We’ve all got one. The one we weren’t allowed to look at; the one we had to admire in secret, from a distance. One more appropriate to deny than to acknowledge, to dismiss than to appreciate. Guilty pleasures in football usually cross supporting lines. It’s very seldom that one can support one of the top sides and not suddenly themselves in awe, in nearly shameful veneration of a particular talent that not only plays for a rival team, but in …
The Benteke Conundrum - Does He Fit?

The Benteke Conundrum - Does He Fit?

Christian Benteke's arrival was met in similar fashion to that of Moses as he made his way to the Red Sea. In this instance though it was the fan's opinion of the player that was parted. Liverpool fans rarely see eye to eye on a player but the signing of the Aston Villa hitman really had people clambering to give a side their support. On one side you had those blinded by goals, a necessity in the Premier League that …
Why Emre Can Shouldn't Be Written Off

Why Emre Can Shouldn't Be Written Off

The defeat against Crystal Palace was Liverpool's first under new manager Jurgen Klopp and fans are looking for players to blame. It's natural of course. People, not just fans, aren't able to process the unknown very well. If Liverpool lose it has to be because of something, it can't just be one of those things that happens. I'm a fan of Emre Can. The German powerhouse has an abundance of talent but as things stand the majority of this talent …
How Klopp Could Bring The Best Out of The Premier League

How Klopp Could Bring The Best Out of The Premier League

Since the news broke on Sunday evening that Brendan Rodgers was no longer Liverpool FC manager and Jurgen Klopp was favourite to take over at Anfield there has been a mixture of feelings being aired on social media. Fans are either in denial about how good the German is and what he brings to Liverpool or jealous at the fact he much sought after manager is now at the helm of one of your rivals. These are understandable feelings. These …
