Goodbye Mr Rodgers

Goodbye Mr Rodgers

18:30 British time. The pundits on Sky Sports were just about wrapping up the analysis on the Arsenal/Manchester United game when they were interrupted by breaking news. News that left Graeme Souness "stunned". Just a few hours after the Merseyside Derby ended in a 1-1 draw at Goodison Park, Liverpool Football club released the following statement:
"Liverpool Football Club has announced that Brendan Rodgers will leave his post with immediate effect after having his contract terminated. The process to …
An Evening With Rodgers

An Evening With Rodgers

I met them both at the Stadium Bukit Jalil press box when the 2nd half started. Duty calls, you see. I was adamant that I spend the 1st half before with my family, eager to impress upon my two elder girls and their cousin sister what it meant to immerse themselves in the game that was being played that evening. The Mighty Reds were in town. And they were up against a select team of players chosen from the Malaysian …

Edin Dzeko May Go To Liverpool In £50m Deal For Raheem Sterling

It appears that Edin Dzeko may be the crucial factor that brings Raheem Sterling to Manchester. The Bosnian striker is, according to reports, being lined up as make-weight in a deal worth £50m to bring in Sterling. Arsenal is apparently now also putting in a bid, intensifying the battle. Intitially, Manchester City were hopeful they could close the deal with straight cash. But now it looks like a player-and-cash deal (plus the club putting the breaks on attempts to stop …

How do you Rate Liverpool's 14/15 Summer Signings?

The summer of 2014 saw Liverpool boss Brendan Rodgers spending £117m in the transfer market in an attempt to boost the club’s title aspirations. After a season that saw the Reds finish second and qualify for the Champions League, the plan was to strengthen the squad in preparation for a crowded fixture list. Of the signings made, though, only a few have made any significant difference to the team. A look at their form this season indicates better times could …
Five Potential Replacements if Rodgers leaves Liverpool

Five Potential Replacements if Rodgers leaves Liverpool

Five wins on the bounce, including an impressive thirteen matches unbeaten had Liverpool dreaming of a second place finish and an FA Cup winners' medal to show for by the end of this campaign. Catching Chelsea would always be a near-impossible task, however, Brendan's men were nailed on pipping City to the runners-up position. Fast-forward a mere two matches later, and 95 % of reds fans would bite your hands off for fourth place. Yes, that's the beauty (or rather …

Bony.... Um? | A look at Liverpool's latest transfer target

Bony.... Um? | A look at Liverpool's latest transfer target

It's official, Suarez has left Liverpool Football Club for the Catalonian sunshine, to join Messi, Neymar and become one of the "new Galacticos". Good for him, but where does that leave Brendan Rodgers and LFC? €90m richer, but seeking to replace 31 league goals, 12 assists and a whole lot of work rate. Rickie Lambert, Adam Lallana and Emre Can have all put pen to paper on Liverpool contracts so far, and Lazar Markovic may well have completed his move …

Fixating on Liverpool's Fixtures

All eyes are now, and have been for the last ten days or so, on events unfolding at the World Cup in Brazil. Thirty two nations, a fantastic location, some enthralling encounters and hitherto unrivalled coverage of all the action, have helped to shift focus away from matters domestic, for the short term at least. Meanwhile, back in Blighty, the home front has come grinding to halt (after Luis Suarez all but sealed England's somewhat inevitable fate over in Rio), …

Searching for the Next Asian star | A chat with Ian Barrigan

Steven Gerrard, Jamie Carragher, Martin Kelly, Michael Owen. All of these former and current Liverpool players have something in common, they all came through the academy during Ian Barrigan's time at the club. Ian Barrigan is the head of local recruitment at the academy, this basically means he  goes out in Liverpool and the surrounding areas and searches high and low for the next Michael Owen or Steven Gerrard. Liverpool of course have a reputation of bringing quality players through the …
