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 …

It has been a tumultuous fortnight for Liverpool fans. What started with indications of ambition from the Reds during this transfer window – two rumoured offers topping their record signing to get in a speedy winger and one of the best defenders in the Premier League, was followed by the underwhelming news that Liverpool have signed Dominic Solanke from Chelsea on a free. Thankfully the youngster has provided some cheer to the Reds with his performances at the U-20 World …

Liverpool Drifting But Not Due to FSG or Klopp

After his side dropped points again to a relegation zone team on Saturday, Jurgen Klopp admitted that the fans were justified in their anger and that the team deserved all the criticism they have received over the last few weeks, and especially after the defeat at the KCom Stadium. Indeed, the fans are justified in expressing their anger over the team's performances. In their last five league games, Liverpool have dropped points to Sunderland, Swansea and Hull, all of whom …
How Liverpool’s New Main Stand Will Play its Part in a Bright Future

How Liverpool’s New Main Stand Will Play its Part in a Bright Future

The Reds have made an emphatic start to the 2016-17 Premier League campaign and the new Main Stand will play an important part in the club’s future success. Jürgen Klopp’s men have won five out of their first seven league fixtures so far this season, including victories over Arsenal, Chelsea and Leicester City. They managed to secure a draw at White Hart Lane too and topped off an impressive start with a second home victory against Hull City when they …
Rodgers Out, Or We're Out

Rodgers Out, Or We're Out

Rewind to the first Brendan Rodgers, Liverpool Football Club press conference. The press, naturally, were gathered and Liverpool’s eighteenth manager was introduced. Tom Werner, the introducing board member, labelled Rodgers as a “forward thinking coach” who would bring a style of “relentless, attacking football”. Fast forward back to the present and the reality is much different. Liverpool are four years into Brendan Rodgers’ tenure and have scored three goals in five games at the start of the 2015/2016 Premier League …
No Success For Liverpool Until Transfer Approach Is Fixed

No Success For Liverpool Until Transfer Approach Is Fixed

Although the application of "never say never" holds very true to the game of football, it is safe to say that in all probability, Liverpool are going to finish outside of the top 4 at the end of the season. While this looked like a given back in November and early December, Liverpool's terrific performances in 2015 which saw them go on a 13 game unbeaten run got back hopes of a top-4 finish amongst the Kop faithful. However, in …
