Clause? What Clause? The Luis Suarez Story

Clause? What Clause? The Luis Suarez Story

In this article I will analyse the complicated world of football contracts, in particular focusing on release clauses, buy-out clauses and the difference between the two. Less than a year ago Liverpool fans were subjected to one the most farcical transfer sagas in recent years. Like football’s equivalent of the Stark’s, Marca issued their monotonous warning again and again.  “Madrid, is coming” and Suarez will be leaving soon. Instead we received news of a bid from notorious penny-pincher Arsenezer Scrooge …

Liverpool's Rest of the World Round 3: Preview

You will be able to tell who has been watching every game of the next round World Cup group games, as there will be an army of Marty Feldman's everywhere you go. This is because we are being treated to two games simultaneously, twice per day until Thursday, leaving Friday to remind us what life was like before this football all-you-can-eat started. Here is a look at which Liverpool players you might see play: Pepe Reina - Spain vs Australia …

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), …
Liverpool Perspective: England vs Uruguay

Liverpool Perspective: England vs Uruguay

England will be looking to bounce back against Uruguay after ‘The Three Lions’ slumped to a 2-1 defeat to Italy on Saturday night. England’s second group game will commence at 8PM inside the Arena Corinthians, São Paulo. The last time these two sides met was at Anfield in 2006 whilst the new Wembley Stadium was being constructed - England won that friendly 2-1 but the overall record isn’t great with Uruguay beating England on four occasions, compared to just three …
Luis Suarez To Return Against England

Luis Suarez To Return Against England

Luis Suarez: To Play or Not To Play? If there’s one sign that Luis Suarez is going to feature in his side’s crunch game with England tomorrow, it’s the fact that he’s stopped texting the Three Lions and Liverpool captain, Steven Gerrard back. Well, that and he’s been in training all week. Reports have been circling that the striker will be fit to start at the Arena De Sao Paulo, pairing up with Edinson Cavani in a bid to bounce …

"Soz Abar Us..." | A Liverpool Supporters View

One day, a loving father told his son a story. A story about the Redmen and their mighty exploits, one that captured the imagination like tales from Herodotus and Thucydides and captured the imagination like the sight of a brutal Roman army. I wasn’t born in Crosby or Huyton. I was born in Edinburgh in a different country. But such was the tale told by my father I felt a connection that I hadn’t felt with any other side, even …

The Lion, The Hodge and The Wardrobe

The Lion, The Hodge and The Wardrobe

Watching this World Cup I’m struck between mixture of sadness and joy. Joy because the football on display has so far been sensational. Sadness, as the famous Tartan army isn’t making me dream that we’ll win the World Cup. Scotland, in my lifetime, will never win the World Cup, of course. But that’s not the point. The scenes of Scotland fans putting bath bombs in the fountains at Trafalgar Square should tell you all you need to know. The kilts, …

Liverpool Perspective: England Vs Italy Preview

The time is nearly upon us. At 11pm on Saturday night Steven Gerrard will lead Roy Hodgson’s England side out of the tunnel at the Arena Amazonia for their opening Group D game against Italy. The last time these two sides met in an international tournament the game ended 0-0 with Italy winning on penalties. It will all be different this time though right? I mean there could be as many as 6 Liverpool players starting, however ,with Roy in …
