Clyne & Henderson In, Matip Out

Clyne & Henderson In, Matip Out

Hello, good evening and welcome to a brief and final Latest News, of the week, where absolutely nothing is wrong. What could be wrong? That television? It was always broken, what of it? Yes, that computer monitor too. The radio too, yeah. What are you implying? Everything's fine. WE SAID IT'S FINE. Football is supposed to be the hot refreshing shower that we take after the increasingly batshit events of the world have sullied us daily. However, on a day when …
Lallana Trumps Them All Says Molby

Lallana Trumps Them All Says Molby

Today, as the people of the United States prepare for the inauguration of a dangerously unhinged vulgarian and the good folk of Britain brace themselves before going through an exit door marked 'Are You Absolutely Sure?' the rest of the world seems to be increasingly riven by conflict and chaos. 2017: it's going great. Amidst such all-pervasive upheaval, it is hardly surprising that within the comparatively insignificant world of football, some seem to be losing their bearings. Bad decisions and …

Xabi Alonso, Thanks for the Memories

Xabi Alonso, Thanks for the Memories

"Woah-oo-ah-ah-ooo We've got the best midfield in the world! We've got Xabi Alonso, Momo Sissoko, Gerrard and Mascherano-ooo"
The good old days eh? As we enter the crunch period in the Premier League, Liverpool fans are going to have to prepare their goodbyes for Xabi Alonso, a man of beauty, on and off the ball. He may have left Liverpool in 2009, but after 149 appearances, 15 goals, 28 assists and 2 unforgettable victories in the Champions League and …
Gerrard: Liverpool Need Daniel Sturridge

Gerrard: Liverpool Need Daniel Sturridge

You know that feeling when you really want to watch the Redmen but you really don't want to watch the Redmen? Here at Latest News, that was the itchy blanket of ambivalence that we snuggled beneath on the sofa and warily changed the channel to BT Sport ahead of last night's cup tie with Plymouth. Within seconds of taking in the comical suit and roll-neck combo sported by try-hard host Jake Humphrey and then realising that 'punditry' for the night …
Liverpool v Swansea Preview - Key Battles

Liverpool v Swansea Preview - Key Battles

Liverpool have played two Premier League games in 2017 and drawn both. Both games were away from home. Both games were a case of the Reds having lost two points, having been ahead for a good part of the games. Jurgen Klopp's men will be back to the happier surrounds of Anfield, when Swansea come visiting on Saturday. By kickoff, it would have been more than a year since the Reds last lost a game at home, and with the …
Lethal Lucas Strikes Again

Lethal Lucas Strikes Again

Most of the Liverpool fans I know for certain to be actual corporeal beings don't have a lot of time for Lucas Leiva as a footballer. In stark contrast, those with whom I only have virtual interactions seem to almost uniformly love the amiable Brazilian. As is often the way in the odd life through which Latest News lurches, the people who live in the computer are often more simpatico. They may not be real but this collection of novelty …
Roberto Firmino's Return to Form?

Roberto Firmino's Return to Form?

It was going to happen eventually wasn't it? Fans were going to start to question the point of Roberto Firmino after his early season form inevitably dropped off. It felt like deja vu and the start of the 2015/16 season repeating itself all over again. You can't say it hasn't been coming though. The former Hoffenheim player scored three goals and grabbed five assists in his first 11 matches and there was a hope he'd finish the season with 20 …
Liverpool vs Swansea City Preview: Can Reds return to 2nd?

Liverpool vs Swansea City Preview: Can Reds return to 2nd?

Liverpool host Swansea City on Saturday looking for their first Premier League win of 2017, three weeks into it! Facing bottom of the table Swansea at Anfield is theoretically the best fixture that the Reds could have been handed this weekend, but there's always the worry of a slip up in this league. THE DETAILS Match: Liverpool vs Swansea City Venue: Anfield Referee: Kevin Friend Date: Saturday 21st January Time: 12:30 BST FORM With 21 games played so far, Liverpool have still only …
Observations from Liverpool's win at Plymouth

Observations from Liverpool's win at Plymouth

Liverpool made hard work of it but they're through to the FA Cup fourth round. A Lucas Leiva header - yes, the Brazilian scored, pick yourself up off the floor - was enough to secure a 1-0 win over Plymouth but it was by no means comfortable. The home side had chances to score and clipped the outside of the post with a great effort in the second-half. You should never be negative when you've won, because that's the important …
