Is This Liverpool Team Capable Of Winning The Title?

Now the international break is upon us it seems a good time to take stock and determine if this is the year Liverpool can finally end their title drought or if they’ll be entertaining, but ultimately unsuccessful yet again.

The obvious answer is yes, of course, they can win it and this is reflected in the current football betting odds, with the Reds now second favourites at 4/1. Even after losing to Spurs, Manchester City remain clear favourites and if Pep Guardiola can address a few issues, it’s possible they might be too strong for Liverpool, just like the 2013/14 season.

Yet this looks like being a vintage Premier League season and even though City have looked mighty impressive at times, it’s only October and so much can happen before the destination of the title is decided. Here are a few reasons why this could be Liverpool’s year:

The defence is improving and you’d back Jurgen Klopp to continue to make improvements. This might seem a little ridiculous when The Reds haven’t kept a clean sheet all season, but other than the crazy 3-4 game against Arsenal and the malfunction of a 2-0 reverse at Turf Moor, Liverpool are conceding just a goal per game. James Milner looks a fit at left-back, Joel Matip seems to be one of the best ever free transfers, Nathaniel Clyne is now looking good going both ways, Dejan Lovren looks the player he was at Southampton and Ragnar Klavan is an able deputy.

The only real concern is at goalkeeper, where Loris Karius seems much better with his feet, but looked timid and failed to come for crosses against Swansea and Simon Mignolet has never convinced. It seems Liverpool have two good Goalkeepers when what they really need is one great one. Mignolet has been given chances, now it’s Karius’ turn to show he can improve and become the main man between the sticks that the squad will need if they’re to get near the title.

There is depth to the squad and new players have seamlessly slipped into the team tactics and mentality. It can be difficult adding players to a squad without disrupting the dynamics and it’s especially difficult to manage players’ game time, as no one wants to be warming the bench. Klopp has done a great job of integrating players such as Sadio Mane and Georginio Wijnaldum into the team and there is no doubt that they have improved the performances while the team mentality looks strong. Yet it’s players such as the returning Emre Can, Danny Ings and Marko Grujic that might prove crucial to a title run.

These players either haven’t done enough in training, have picked up an injury or are simply not as good as someone else in their position but in spite of that, they could be decisive to Liverpool’s success. Either coming off the bench or taking the place of an injured player, these are men Klopp will be calling on to do a job for him and his options look very much improved over previous Liverpool squads. Hopefully, these players are up to the job, as injuries will happen and Mane will be off to the African Nations Cup in the New Year, meaning that some players not getting much game time currently, will need to be ready to perform.

Liverpool’s attack will cause problems for any side they face and without the distraction of European football they should be able to maintain the level of performance that has been so impressive thus far. Unlike the 2013/14 season that relied so much on the excellence of Luis Suarez, this campaign’s attack has a combination of fluidity and agility that incorporates many players without being reliant on any one individual.

Philippe Coutinho, Adam Lallana, Roberto Firmino and company all hunt the ball together, are then quick to interchange for the attack and it’s a recipe for disaster for any defence they come up against. The statistics show that this Liverpool team is running more than any other side they come up against and the more they play like this the fitter they’ll get. When Klopp first came to the club, there was a problem with many hamstring injuries incurred, but with a full pre-season behind them and no midweek trips around Europe, this should no longer be an issue and the attacking football we love should continue to flourish.

Seven league games in and Liverpool have only played two at Anfield, have played last years’ Champions and a few of the teams expected to challenge this year, yet they sit on 16 points. There’s a long way to go, but there are a few reasons to be optimistic that this is the year.

Liverpool aiming to convince they have the winning mentality

Liverpool’s recent winning run – helped by a 2-1 victory at Bournemouth – has cemented the belief that Jurgen Klopp has finally installed a winning mentality into the Reds, just at the right time.

A much-changed Liverpool line-up triumphed on the south coast with goals from Roberto Firmino and Daniel Sturridge and, despite featuring a host of second-choice names after the previous week’s heroics in the Europa League win over Borussia Dortmund, it was a routine victory that was marred only by an injury-time strike from Joshua King, which served as a mere consolation for the Cherries.

With the business end of the season well and truly upon them, Liverpool fans are anxious for signs that Klopp’s much-lauded managerial methods are finally delivering consistency and an end result.

Liverpool lie in eighth position in the Barclays Premier League, at the time of writing, just two points behind West Ham United in the Europa League places for next season, but, crucially, with a game-in-hand over the Hammers.

Six games remain in the Premier League for Liverpool to clinch a Europa League place for the 2016/17 season, in the event that they don’t win the trophy in May and automatically earn the right to defend it. However, having gone five games unbeaten since that horrifying 3-2 defeat to Southampton – after having lead 2-0 – Liverpool are now beginning to convince their expectant fanbase that they are the real deal.

Since letting that two-goal lead slip at St Mary’s, Liverpool have earned a credible draw at home to title-chasing Tottenham Hotspur, successfully navigated the home and away legs against Borussia Dortmund, and earned wins at home to Stoke City (4-1) and away at Bournemouth (2-1).

Liverpool face a tough run-in to the end of the season, including the Europa League semi-finals. The latest Europa League odds show Liverpool and Villarreal can barely be separated and, while the former have hit form at the right time, the Spaniards have also won four successive games and sit fourth in La Liga, a full six points ahead of Athletic Bilbao below them.

But with the crucial and potentially season-defining semi-final tie with Villarreal less than a fortnight away, Liverpool can’t afford to lose their focus and have two critical Premier League games before then in which they must maintain their upwards momentum. Klopp will have been delighted with the performances of second-string youngsters such as Brad Smith, Connor Randall, Kevin Stewart and Sheyi Ojo in the win against Bournemouth, but he is sure to restore the majority of his big guns for the passionate local derby with Everton, followed by another home game with relegation-haunted Newcastle United also coming up soon.

The energy-sapping drama of Liverpool’s epic win over Dortmund certainly affected some of Liverpool’s key players, but it has energised their fans, and now the players must truly deliver.

Will Liverpool qualify for Champions League this year?

In the last couple of seasons Liverpool failed to qualify for Champions League but this could be their year. According to football experts Liverpool ar ranked fourth in Premier League this season after Man City, Chelsea and Man United.


By Ivan PC from Vigo, Spain

So the top four finish is realistic and why not considering them title contenders. You can get a football coupon if you want to bet on their chances.

Liverpool was a force in Europe a few years ago and that’s what fans from all over the World are expecting to see again shortly. They were constantly playing in Champions League and had great results. “The Reds” were part of what we called “Big Four” until 2010 when they finished second in Premier League the previous year.

Since then they were on a decline and even if they spent huge sums of money they failed to get back on top. Brendan Rodgers is hoping to break the curse and bring Liverpool were it belongs. The first step was done last weekend when Liverpool managed to beat their rivals Manchester United with 1 – 0.

Rodgers has made not less than 8 transfers this summer. Sakho, Mignolet, Toure, Cissokho, Luis Alberto, Ilori, Moses and Iago Aspas arrived at Anfield while Borini was loaned to Sunderland. The most expensive was Sakho who cost Liverpool €17 millions.

Liverpool to sign Kolo Toure on a free

Liverpool will sign Kolo Toure at the end of the season when his contract with Manchester City will expire.

The 32 years old defender has not been in the first team lately, as he made only 17 appearances for City this season, and this move could revitalize his career.

Jamie Carragher has retired and he will probably partner Daniel Agger in the center of defence. If Toure will reach his best form Liverpool could have one of the best defence in Premier League. Kolo Toure was considered one of the best defenders in the World a few years ago when Arsenal dominated Premier League.

His experience will definitely help Liverpool and considering that he comes for free makes him a quality signing.

Liverpool are trying to get back into top four position, which assures them a qualifying spot for Champions League next season, and this could be the year.

Jamie Carragher to retire at the end of the season

Bad news for Liverpool fans. Jamie Carragher has announced that he will retire at the end of the season.

The 35 years old defender is a legend already in Liverpool. The veteran defender was at Liverpool since he was a child, only 9 years old, and is second in the list of appearance-makers with 723 presences. Ian Callaghan  tops the list.

With Brendan Rodgers as coach, Carra found his playing time limited at Anfield. It is well known that Rodgers is a coach who promotes youngsters into the first team. This is probably one of the reasons why he decided that it’s time to hang out the boots.

With all this said Carragher played the last two Premier League games against Arsenal and Manchester City and he did well. Now even more the Liverpool fans will try to make Carragher change his mind.

Even if he is not playing regularly he is a leader and a role model along with Steven Gerrard. The youngsters have a lot to learn from him.

If he wont change his mind we are all hoping that he will get a role into the coaching staff of the club. It would be a petty to not have him continue with the club he loves.

Head on over to and get the Fox Soccer Plus to make sure that you don’t miss a moment on the pitch this season.

Latest reports from Premier League suggest that Liverpool are close to sign Roma goalkeeper Alexander Doni.
The 31 years old Brazilian is going to be the backup solution for no 1 Pepe Reina.
Kenny Dalglish is trying to not repeat other managers mistakes from the past when they got caught with no viable solution for a injured player.
The transfer sum is not know yet but probably Liverpool will sign the Brazilian on a free.
Liverpool already invested around €100 millions on transfers since Dalglish took the manager job and the fans and owners have big expectations from the squad this year.

Liverpool are still interested in buying a winger with Mata from Valencia and Downing from Aston Villa on the head of the list. If one of the moves will be done then Liverpool will be the first Premier League club who invested more then €100 millions on transfers  this year.
