Xherdan Shaqiri

Liverpool have been linked with a slew of attackers ever since we lost the Champions League final. Nabil Fekir seemed to be on his way to the Reds but that deal fell through due to a medical issue.

Following the failure of that deal, we have been linked with a move for Xherdan Shaqiri, who would be an amazing option.

However, there still seems to be one problem with most of these transfers. We have to wait for the World Cup to end for any new signings, or at least that is what most of the papers are saying, and that is something we have to avoid at all costs.

Sign them quick and watch them perform

One thing that has been a fixture under Jurgen Klopp is our tendency to sign players early. Naby Keita’s deal was announced a year back while Fabinho was signed even before the transfer window opened.

Of course, there have been a few misses here and there like the Virgil van Dijk deal but in most cases, we bring players to Anfield early on so they can gel with the side and understand the Jurgen Klopp way.

Sadio Mane and Mohamed Salah

Mohamed Salah and Sadio Mane, the two wide men, were also brought in early and in each of their debut seasons, they started off with a bang.

Mane scored that sensational goal against Arsenal at the Emirates while Salah was in the thick of the action against Watford last season.

The pair had a lot of time to understand how we play and that is why we must sign an attacker before the World Cup ends.

Apart from getting done with the long-drawn negotiation process, it would also provide Klopp with ample time to devise a plan to utilize the player effectively.

The German would know what he wants from his new signing but to have the player training with the side from the beginning is an entirely different proposition.

Be it Fekir or Shaqiri, or some random star who has made a name for himself in the World Cup, the deal has to be done quickly and announced too.

Nabil Fekir

The worst feeling for fans is the endless wait for a quality signing to come in. Hence, Klopp and the rest of the management have to get going and save us from the drudgery of waiting around.

It is quite possible that we have been spoiled by Klopp, thanks to the extraordinary work done by the German. Our side is playing incredible football and we are certainly on the rise.

Most of our signings are doing well and with a manager that has a clear vision of what he wants, the only thing missing is a trophy or two to go along with it.

However, that could seriously change next term. Hopefully, we will have that one extra world-class attacker in the side by mid-July rather than a few hours before the transfer window ends.

Liverpool star fails to hide frustration despite celebrating PSG winner

Published

on

Mohamed Salah didn’t score in Liverpool’s thrilling 3-2 win over Paris Saint-Germain. Instead, he almost cost us the game.

The former Roma attacker gave the ball away as PSG scored their equalizer in the 83rd minute. However, Roberto Firmino saved us with an incredible goal in stoppage time.

A video surfaced of Salah throwing a bottle after Firmino’s goal. Although the Egyptian celebrated the winner, he was seen flinging a bottle away.

Rio Ferdinand hinted this wasn’t frustration and claimed the Liverpool attacker had his own way of celebrating. The former Manchester United defender was quoted by the Metro saying:

“I think Salah’s celebrating in his own way. His hands were up at the beginning of that. The first picture [shows] his hands were up [celebrating].”

Salah hasn’t been at his best since the start of the season and only has a couple of goals to his name. Sadio Mane has taken up the scoring mantle in his place and has five goals to his name while Firmino now has three.

The Egyptian might have felt relieved at the winner. However, the 25-year-old was responsible for Kylian Mbappe’s goal and his muted celebration could be ominous for the opposition in the coming weeks.

Salah has been taking shots and finding the open spaces but things aren’t going well for him. There is no doubt that once he starts scoring regularly, there will be no stopping him. All he needs is a bit of luck this season.

“Who did the Pirate better?” – Some Liverpool fans go crazy after Klopp copies celebration post PSG win

Published

Roberto Firmino scored the winning goal in an enthralling encounter against Paris Saint-Germain. Liverpool led 2-0 but were pegged back to 2-2 in the 83rd minute.

The Brazilian didn’t start the game but produced the telling moment in the 91st minute. Anfield went wild after the game and Firmino had another brilliant celebration in the spur of the moment.

The attacker covered his left eye after beating the PSG keeper. This could have been in reference to the eye injury he picked up against Tottenham last weekend.

Jan Vertonghen poked the Brazilian but it didn’t matter as we beat Tottenham and did the same to PSG too.

Firmino has had a number of celebrations in recent years such as “shooting the gun”, “kung-fu kicks” and taking his shirt off and getting yellow carded.

Jurgen Klopp also got into the act as he copied Firmino’s latest celebration during the post-match interviews and a number of fans reacted to the boss doing this bit.

(Video) Watch Sadio Mane completely destroy Neymar with filthy skill during Champions League clash

Sadio Mane

Liverpool’s match against Paris Saint-Germain was the pick of the clashes from the first round of Champions League fixtures and what a tie it was.

The Reds raced into a 2-0 lead, thanks to goals from Daniel Sturridge and James Milner. PSG weren’t giving up without a fight as Thomas Meunier pulled one back before half-time.

Kylian Mbappe scored in the 83rd minute but Roberto Firmino had the last laugh with the winner in the 91st minute.

The clash featured some of the best players in the world but there was one moment of brilliance from Sadio Mane.

The Senegal international couldn’t score in the game but he did destroy Neymar on the pitch. The incident happened in the first-half as Mane was attacking down the right and the Brazilian was trying to defend.

A move here, a drop of the shoulder there and poof, the Liverpool man burst into the box. Neymar was taken to the cleaners and it set the tone for the Brazilian to barely figure in the game.

Mane was excellent in the first half as we harried and bullied PSG into submission. The Senegal man didn’t score a goal but he surely made life tough for the French side.

We have started our Champions League campaign in excellent fashion and our next European tie is against Napoli in Italy.
