Joe Cole - a central midfielder?

Joe Cole - a central midfielder?

During the transfer window there were rumours flying about that Joe Cole would be heading out of Anfield on loan to Spurs.  Those rumours may have been wide of the mark but you can see why there might have been more than a little bit of truth in them, given that Harry Redknapp tried to sign him in the summer and is a keen admirer. Joe Cole didn’t leave and he’s a Liverpool player for the foreseeable future, the issue …

LFC U18's Vs Crewe Report

With their third of the week the young Reds made it eight wins on the spin, showing their grit to come from a goal down away at Crewe. After conceding a penalty and falling behind 1-0 within the first 5 minutes, the team rallied and drew level courtesy of a Toni Silva header. The Portuguese winger bundled home after a Krisztian Adorjan corner, grabbing the goal that certainly his performance earlier in the week against Huddersfield deserved …

LFC U18's Vs Huddersfield Report

The midweek game saw Huddersfield visit Kirkby and another confident performance from the young Reds, who took the lead in the 1st half after Adorjan & Sterling linked up once again.

LFC U18's Vs Stoke City Report

After the FA Youth Cup drubbing of Southend & Raheem Sterling’s 5 star performance it was back to league action for the Under-18’s with 3 games in the space of 8 days.

Liverpool FC Need Wingers...

It’s always hard to calculate transfer costs. Transfer fees can be undisclosed, and additional costs such as agents fees and wages etc are even harder to guess. But despite these obstacles, guesstimates can be made. Looking at the stats we do have, the last four Liverpool FC managers, Gerard Houllier, Rafa Benitez, Roy Hodgson and now Kenny Dalglish, have between them laid out nearly £440 million in transfers, on 172 players. By my count, in total the four of them have laid out £10 million or more on a single player 13 times: …
Sotirios Kyrgiakos: Season so far

Sotirios Kyrgiakos: Season so far

Whenever I see Kyrgiakos, I always think he should be in the film ‘300’ screaming at the top of his voice ‘This is Sparta!!’ rather than being a footballer. So probably playing Centre Half is very suited to him. His strength and aerial ability has been a useful asset in recent years …

Andy Carroll - The season so far

Right, so recently Liverpool have signed Andy Carroll to replace the outgoing Fernando Torres. But what do we really know about the big number nine? Well be looking at his performances for Newcastle this season we can gain a real insight into his game and where he affects play the most on the pitch. Now you might be tempted to jump straight in and say that he is most effective in and around the opposition penalty area, but that is not necessarily the case …
Meireles is more...

Meireles is more...

Whether Roy Hodgson came to Liverpool with Raul Meireles in his little black book of decent midfielders or whether he was merely the grateful recipient of some good scouting from the Anfield backroom staff is a moot point. What is clear is that he has certainly been the most successful of the departed’s recruits …
