Sugarcoating Emre - The Can Situation Is A Disaster

There is no right way to leave a club. If nothing else, that’s the lesson that we can take from Liverpool in the last few months and even years. Zeroing in more specifically on Emre Can, it seems to me that there simply is no way that Emre can leave the club that won’t anger the majority of our fans. Let me offer you some plausible ways that Emre could leave. Emre could well, as most people expect at this …

Potential Serie A Talent For Liverpool In The January Window

Since Jürgen Klopp took the seat at Anfield as manager last October, Liverpool could not have asked for a better situation to be sitting in as we creep closer to year's end.

The Christian Benteke link doesn't seem to want to go away and whilst right now I feel as though it's Villa pushing to sell him, I can't shake the feeling come the last week of the window we'll throw an extraordinary bid in for him and make him the 'marquee' signing.

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
