Target Should be Top Four, not the Title

August 11, 2017

Liverpool enjoyed a successful 2016-17 Premier League campaign. The Reds were in the title race for around half the season and eventually finished fourth. With Arsenal and Manchester United ending up below them in the standings, the Anfield faithful must have been satisfied with how last season eventually panned out. Jurgen Klopp’s side played good attacking football, and there were a lot of positives.

With the 2017-18 Premier League campaign getting underway this week, Liverpool fans will be hoping for yet another exciting and successful season. The Reds have been quite active in the summer transfer window and have signed three players so far, while they have not lost anyone they could not live without. Andre Wisdom was away on loan at RB Salzburg last season, while Kevin Stewart failed to make an impact at Anfield and Lucas Leiva was able to make only 12 starts in the Premier League in 2016-17.

There is nothing else to say. It’s a club decision, it’s my decision. That’s how it is. I can say 20 times, he is not for sale. If you ask the other question the other way and I say, there has been no assurance, you make the story the other way. There is no story for me. Whatever happens from their side, I say he is not for sale. The answer is — not for sale.” Read More

Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has confirmed that the club will not listen to offers for midfielder Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain despite the constant speculation over his future.

July 11, 2017

Liverpool are reportedly holding the advantage in the pursuit of Benjamin Mendy after Manchester City pulled the plug on the proposed deal.

The Merseyside outfit would potentially face a tricky tie in the play-offs, and for this, the head coach is pushing to quickly seal a left-back signing. Read More

June 23, 2017

Liverpool playmaker Philippe Coutinho has refused to rule out a summer move from Anfield by describing that the speculation linking him with Barcelona as complicated.


The Brazil international contributed 13 goals and seven assists during the previous campaign as the Reds secured a top-four finish in the Premier League. As a result, Jurgen Klopp’s side will be plying their trade in next season’s Champions League which would allow them to attract some of the best talents from across the world.

Coutinho inked a fresh five-year contract with the Reds in January in order to quell any speculation over his future, and the questions still linger over where his commitment would lie at the start of next season. Former Reds striker Luis Suarez had a hidden release clause which was triggered to lure him to Barcelona, but the club are now in a stronger position with Coutinho after they eliminated the buy-out clause option.

The 27-year old has suffered a spate of injuries over recent seasons. His employers Borussia Dortmund are willing to listen to offers from £67 million, according to reports.

Borussia Dortmund have reportedly removed the previous £21 million release clause in the player’s contract in 2015 so they would earn big if clubs want to sign him now.

Liverpool Must Use a Top-Four Finish as a Springboard to Success

May 8, 2017

The Reds’ victory at Watford gives them a significant advantage over the stuttering Manchester duo in the quest for a place in the Premier League top four.

Emre Can’s superb finish is quite rightly being touted as one of the goals of the season but the German’s acrobatics shouldn’t deflect the attention away from a hugely important three points for his side.

Liverpool have been far from consistent this campaign and have regularly slipped up against sides in the bottom half of table, much to the chagrin of Reds fans. Read More

Liverpool Have Not Thrown Away Top Four Place, says Jurgen Klopp

May 4, 2017

Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp says that the club have not thrown away a top four place after the loss against Crystal Palace.


The club came into the game on the back of a good run of form in recent weeks. However, Crystal Palace managed to secure a 2-1 win at Anfield. Even though Philippe Coutinho opened the scoring after just 24 minutes, Crystal Palace managed to pull back level in the 42nd minute through former Red Christian Benteke. The Belgian once again haunted the club with a second goal in the 74th minute, and Liverpool were unable to recover from these two setbacks.

This was the first defeat for the club since the end of February when they lost to Leicester City. They have been able to go on a run of five wins and two draws in the last seven games. Yet, this defeat is much more damaging to the club’s hopes of finishing in the top four, as it has allowed Manchester United with a real opportunity to plug the gap with their two games in hand. United are only three points behind. Read More

April 28, 2017

Former Liverpool forward Stan Collymore reckons that Jurgen Klopp should have swallowed his pride and kept Mamadou Sakho in the team.


The former Paris St Germain defender has been rated as one of the top defenders in the Premier League, but he has been susceptible to the odd issues off the pitch. After being involved in one such issue during pre-season,Sakho was forced out of the first team been definitely. The 27-year-old sat out of the first half of the campaign, and he was allowed to join Crystal Palace on a loan deal till the end of the season.

Collymore says that Sakho was clearly the best defender when it comes to dealing with balls in the box. However, letting him go meant that Jurgen Klopp currently has a back four which is completely unfit for this purpose. Collymore reckons that it has been one of the main factors behind the club conceding an excessive amount of goals. Read More
