Liverpool’s transfer activity will be highly scrutinised after scraping 4th place in the league and getting into the qualifying stage of the Champions League. Manchester City for instance have already purchased Bernardo Silva from Monaco and have apparently tied up a deal for Benfica’s keeper Ederson for a huge £34.7m.
This has prompted a social media meltdown from Liverpool fans, though the 2016/17 season has just barely concluded. The transfer window does not officially reopen for a month, but that does not mean business cannot be done now. So let’s have …

If you’re looking to catch your favourite Premier League teams on their pre-season tour this summer then there are a few different places you’re going to need to have a look at. With an El Classico pre-season friendly heading over to America, and some of the Premier League teams heading to Asia, Europe and America too, there’s going to be plenty of action to catch wherever you are. If you’re heading out to America to catch your teams then you need to make sure you carry out an ESTA renewal …

Though he is Liverpool’s Captain Jordan Henderson still provides a divide in opinion between not just Liverpool fans, but football followers in general. Whereas some can appreciate his industrious nature, others tend to see him as an individual who has stolen a career as soon as they hear his name.
When Kenny Dalglish bought Henderson for an initial £16 million fee (that had the chance to rise to £20 million) from his hometown club Sunderland in the summer of 2011, not surprisingly, numerous eyebrows were raised. Henderson had come through the …

The recent gossip and disappointment surfacing about Liverpool being a selling club baffles me to some extent as you’ve got to digest the news with some context.
Swiss researchers: since 2010 Liverpool have made more money than any club in the world from selling players – £378m. Valencia second £370m

Most of our recent money influx has come from the sale of players like Torres (wanted away with a tiny part of the money got from selling him astutely being invested in the Uruguayan biter), Suarez (claims …

When Philippe Coutinho was chosen by his peers as part of the PFA’s 2015 Premier League Team of the Year, it seemed as though the world was about to fall at his feet.
His prodigious natural talent had seen him entrusted as playmaker-in-chief and potential heir to Luis Suarez as Liverpool’s most talismanic player. It suggested that better times were looming large on the horizon for both the player and the club, despite the team’s laboured efforts on the pitch and the largely clueless management of Brendan Rodgers.
Fast forward seven months …

It is not very often that a manager will lead his players to salute the fans after his team draws. Jurgen Klopp is not like any other managers, though, and he did just that. At the end of the game against West Brom on Sunday, the manager led the Liverpool players to the Kop where they all saluted the fans for the support they gave.
Liverpool was 2 – 1 down against West Brom until the 96th minutes. Divock Origi managed to rescue a point for the Red thanks to a …

An emotionally charged rendition of ‘La Marseillaise’ set the scene for an International friendly fixture between France and England on Tuesday night. Both sets of players and supporters sang the French national anthem as the Wembley arch was lit up in bright red, white and blue.
This show of solidarity, for the unspeakable atrocities in Paris, then materialised into a half-decent game of football that the home side won 2-0.
England fielded their youngest team for over half a century and were the better side throughout. The Tottenham trio of Eric Dier, …

Another season, another mediocre Liverpool start. Life post-Suarez has yielded little. The man scripted to fill his void is in treatment more than on turf. Brendan Rodgers (may his character rest in peace) has wasted millions on failing, baby-faced ‘prodigies’ from far-flung leagues. Yet again, us Never-Walk-Alone-ers have to bear the likes of Joe Allen and Lucas Leiva, patrolling a midfield once occupied by Gerrard and Alonso. My tears could fill the Mersey twice over.
Rodgers, the epitome of a managerial enigma, has gone. It was only a matter of time. …

The new appointed Liverpool manager has become popular on news coverage on the last few week. Liverpool fans and legends hail the 48-year-old German would be a success to land a trophy for the club; despite before his first match result.
Jürgen Klopp takes a charge as Liverpool stand on 7th in the premier league and under disappointing result in the several tournament, including Capitol Cup, and UEFA League group stage. However, his then glorious Dortmund’s history will also convince to inspire the return of Anfield glory.
3-years contract for the FIFA …

‘The normal one’ has arrived. Jurgen Klopp, an already popular figure in the UK endeared the media in his unveiling as the new manager of Liverpool Football Club. He tells us he is not a genius but is excited to be here and will work as hard as possible to make his new side a success after 25 years without winning the league. At Borussia Dortmund he won the title in only his 3rd season and even more impressively defended that title the next year. After seeing his team decimated …
