Where would Steven Gerrard fit into this Liverpool team?

Where would Steven Gerrard fit into this Liverpool team?

While it's practically impossible to improve on the kind of perfection that this Liverpool team has embodied over the last two year... it's always fun to fantasise, isn't it? So with that being said, here's a Liverpool legend that might just fit into the greatest LFC side of our generation. Steven Gerrard. And before we get started, I don't think it's unfair to say that Captain Fantastic as he was so often referred to wouldn't fit into any of the …
Shaqiri can emulate past 'risks' Sturridge and Coutinho

Shaqiri can emulate past 'risks' Sturridge and Coutinho

On current form, Xherdan Shaqiri is Liverpool's most in-form attacking player. The Swiss is yet to put a foot wrong for the Reds despite struggling to earn regular playing time, while his performances for Switzerland have been outstanding. He produced a match-winning display in his country's shock 5-2 win over Belgium on Sunday night, and has now scored two goals and registered five assists in his last eight appearances domestically and internationally. The current signs are immensely positive from a …
Xherdan Shaqiri: £13 million of ever-growing importance

Xherdan Shaqiri: £13 million of ever-growing importance

When Liverpool secured the services of 'The Alpine Messi', Xherdan Shaqiri, during the summer transfer window, his arrival on Merseyside was greeted with a mixture of scepticism and optimism.

So far, this morning, and Latest News has waited ALL morning, there has not been so much as a whiff of anything newsworthy. We were dangerously close to this becoming one of those dreaded opinion columns, y'know, like that Downey fella used to write, when the midday news dump brought a couple …
The De-Evolution of Philippe Coutinho

The De-Evolution of Philippe Coutinho

I remember when we signed Philippe Coutinho from Inter Milan. I hadn't seen much of him other than a few games at Espanyol and the odd Inter game, one of which being their 4-3 victory over Spurs when Gareth Bale grabbed a hattrick. It was the Welshman that grabbed the headlines but I was quietly impressed by with the Inter number 29. Such tight close control, an eye for a pass and the technique to execute it. He had that …

Give us a Hand - Samir Handanovic | AI's Xmas Wish List

As I was in a maze on how to begin this piece, I was duly provided a helping hand by our manager himself as he outlined the reason for dropping Simon Mignolet in favour of Brad Jones for the game against Manchester United.
I felt I had to change it because we have to find solutions throughout the squad to be better, I said to Simon that it's for an indefinite period - Brendan Rodgers on Dropping Mignolet
