Hoffenheim Vs Liverpool Playoff Preview | Stats, Key Men & Team News

When Liverpool ended the last season in fourth position, the fans were overjoyed. Champions League nights at Anfield and in other hallowed European stadia awaited them. But there was a small detail to be ironed out. The Reds have a playoff to negotiate before they can actually participate in the Champions League group stage and compete for later stages. On 4th August, they found out that their opponents are going to be European debutants Hoffenheim, who ended their Bundesliga season in …
Liverpool: 2017/18 - Season Preview

Liverpool: 2017/18 - Season Preview

We Liverpool fans are an optimistic lot. It is difficult to find a more optimistic creature in the world than a Liverpool fan during the pre-season. As soon as a few transfers have been signed and a few pre-season friendlies won, most Reds fans start wondering, some more publicly than others, “Is this finally going to be our season?”. The levels of optimism may swing a bit – waning in the summer of 2010 when Roy Hodgson had been appointed …
Liverpool Will Chart New Course With £150m Spending Spree

Liverpool Will Chart New Course With £150m Spending Spree

In my last piece, I made a case for Liverpool Football Club’s American owner, Fenway Sports Group (FSG). I believe that they’ve been good, solid owners who have taken a long-term view towards the revival of this proud, once hugely successful club. A lot of people underestimate just how precariously close the club was to going under when they took over in 2010. In Spain, they talk about how Barcelona and Real Madrid do not worry about carrying the huge …
The Verdict on FSG as Liverpool Owners

The Verdict on FSG as Liverpool Owners

So, it is finally over. The wait for Liverpool’s ‘first’ signing in the transfer season. The recruitment of Mohamed Salah has been announced. I say first given the underwhelming response to Dominic Solanke’s impending arrival from Chelsea for a fee that could be only £3 million. In the latest annual report, the directors at the club stressed on the four key elements of the club’s strategy. The first one is to improve football performance through a positive playing style and …
The Next Step in the Jurgen Klopp Project at Liverpool

The Next Step in the Jurgen Klopp Project at Liverpool

In his first press conference as Liverpool boss, Jurgen Klopp mentioned that history wasn’t something that one carries in their backpack, when asked about the long title drought at the club. His comment suggested that he wasn’t going to be weighed down by the expectations at Liverpool, but was however quick to add that he did not want to wait another 20 years. What made me do a double take was what followed. “If we sit here in four years …
Naby Keita - Where Would he fit in at Liverpool?

Naby Keita - Where Would he fit in at Liverpool?

Naby Keita has emerged as one of Liverpool's priority transfer targets over the last few months and their pursuit of the RB Leipzig midfielder is beginning to heat up. Goal report that the Reds are leading the chase for one of the hottest properties in European football, while the Mirror state that they are prepared to smash their transfer record to land the 22-year-old. That currently stands at £35 million, which they paid for Andy Carroll in January 2011. That was …
Klopp’s Late Substitutions Have Hurt Liverpool This Season

Klopp’s Late Substitutions Have Hurt Liverpool This Season

Liverpool fans are often trolled by competitor fans about always thinking at the start of every season that this will be their season. The Reds' optimism has almost been successful on two occasions in the last four seasons. But it has not materialised in a league title or indeed any silverware in the last few seasons, as at some point in the campaign a slip-up (pun intended) occurred that threw them off the track. Hence the derision from the other …
