The Fekir problem 0

Posted on June 08, 2018 by Harry Kettle

It’s starting to look like Liverpool are on the verge of signing Nabil Fekir, and when we say it’s starting to look like, we mean that it’s pretty much done. The 24-year-old Frenchman has been in the headlines ever since the summer transfer window officially opened, and it’s no secret that there were a handful of teams who were interested in acquiring his services.

The guy was always going to be a hot commodity given how fast his rise up through the ranks has been, but few could’ve anticipated that he’d be sold for figures over £50 million. Still, it’s going to be a great move for the development of his young career, and many fans will be excited to see him in action in the Premier League.

Are Liverpool a step above Arsenal now? 0

While we may only be in the early stages of the summer transfer window, things are already starting to heat up. Arsenal are enquiring for every high-profile player under the sun, Manchester United are stepping up their title challenge in the form of Fred, and Liverpool have already surprised a lot of people by bringing Fabinho to the club.

Strongest season ever? 0

While the dust is only just starting to settle in regards to the 2017/18 Premier League season, we’re already extremely invested in seeing what’s going to go down next year – which is hardly a surprise. Sure, the World Cup is going to keep us occupied for a few months, but the consistency and the drama of domestic football is something that is always going to capture our hearts and attention.

Fabinho – bad sign? 0

Posted on May 29, 2018 by Harry Kettle

The 24-year-old sensation that is Fabinho made the headlines last night after it was confirmed that he’d be signing with Liverpool, just days after they lost the UEFA Champions League Final in Kiev. However, as reported by Sky Sports, it seems like there was another club in the running to land his signature at the eleventh hour: Arsenal.

The signing is a huge sign of intent from the Reds, especially given that they’ve moved so quickly in the wake of such a devastating defeat. It’s already starting to seem like they’re going to bounce back and learn from their loss to Real Madrid, which isn’t necessarily how most teams would react to a defeat in the UCL final.

The Liverpool result – a pro or con? 0

Posted on May 27, 2018 by Harry Kettle

Last night, Liverpool tried and failed to become the Champions of Europe as they lost 3-1 to Real Madrid in the final. Zidane’s side won the trophy for the third straight year, solidifying their position as one of the greatest teams of all time – and perhaps even the greatest. Many will say that Karius is the biggest story of the evening, and yet, Gareth Bale and Cristiano Ronaldo both did their best to ensure that they stole the show.

On This Day In 2017: Arsenal miss out on UCL 0

Posted on May 21, 2018 by Harry Kettle

It’s time for yet another trip down memory lane, but unfortunately, this one isn’t quite as favourable. Twelve months ago today Arsenal finished off their strong end to the Premier League season with a convincing 3-1 victory over Everton, but unfortunately, the Gunners missed out on a spot in the top four as a result of Liverpool running out 3-0 winners over Middlesbrough.

Arsene Wenger’s side needed to ensure that they bettered Liverpool’s result in order to stand any chance of qualifying for Europe’s top club competition, but for the first time in what felt like forever, they failed.

Arsenal’s interest in Buvač genuine 2

As you probably already know, Bosnian media outlet Pravda BL has reported that Liverpool assistant manager Željko Buvač is set to take over from Arsene Wenger as Arsenal manager this summer, following his departure from Anfield. On the other hand, Liverpool maintain that the man manager Jürgen Klopp refers to as “The Brain” is only on temporary leave until the end of the season due to personal problems, and they expect him back at the club in the summer.

Meanwhile, Sky Sports report they understand that the Gunners’ interest in Buvač is genuine. It seems head of recruitment Sven Mislintat is keen on the (former?) Liverpool man, the man he once worked with at Borussia Dortmund.

While it’s somewhat unusual to look towards your Premier League rivals for a guiding light, that may be exactly what Arsenal need to do in order to summon the strength necessary to overcome Atletico Madrid tonight. They’ll head into their game in Spain tonight with the aggregate score being locked at 1-1, and with just 90 minutes separating them from a place in the UEFA Europa League final, they can’t afford any slip-ups.

Liverpool assistant boss linked with Arsenal job 0

According to reports from Bosnian publication Pravda BL, Liverpool assistant manager Zeljko Buvac could be the next Arsenal boss. There was a recent story that Buvac had left the Merseyside club. However, it has now been confirmed by the Liverpool Echo that the 56-year-old has been allowed leave until the end of the season for personal reasons.

The leave comes at a strange time considering that the Reds are facing Roma in a vital Champions League semi-final second leg on Wednesday night, although Klopp’s side does have a 5-2 lead from the first leg at Anfield.

Arsenal fans shouldn’t dwell on Oxlade-Chamberlain 0

Posted on April 06, 2018 by Harry Kettle

On Wednesday night Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain scored an utterly remarkable goal for Liverpool as they ran out 3-0 winners over Premier League leaders Manchester City at Anfield. The goal, and the eventual victory means that the Reds are on the verge of reaching the UEFA Champions League semi-finals where they’ll likely come up against one of Bayern Munich, Barcelona or Real Madrid.
