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 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.

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.

Hence the derision from the other …
