Where does Rodgers need to strengthen?

AFTER an underwhelming start to the season which has seen Liverpool not only lie astray of the Premier League leaders market, but also suffer a Champions League exit, it’s quite clear lessons need to be learned from the summer’s transfer moves.

The difficulty in January is that both funds, and quality of players available, will be of a different level. Liverpool will therefore have to be astute in the market, and pack certainty when going in for a player.

Liverpool To Raid The January Sales, But Who Should They Sign?

 

Brendan Rodgers

BRENDAN RODGERS has a lot to think about at the moment. Getting back to winning ways is first and foremost. The two results against Stoke and Leicester have gone some way to remedying that. Then there’s solving the problem which is Mario Balotelli, getting Daniel Sturridge back to full fitness, and anticipating whether Steven Gerrard will sign a new contract. And all that’s on top of some much needed reinforcements come January.

There have been plenty of names thrown around ahead of the opening day of the window on January 1, with the likes of Martin Odegaard, Edinson Cavani, and Mats Hummels all being linked with a move to Anfield. But who do we need? Who do we want? And more importantly who will we get? Continue Reading →

HARD CASE: An honest book from an honest footballer

THERE was a lot of fuss recently when Roy Keane brought out his second autobiography, the thoughts of a football ‘hardman’ with a decent number of medals who had played at more than one club in his time.

How would that hardman measure up to a man from another era, a man who won plenty of silverware for Liverpool, a certain Jimmy Case? We’ll never know, of course, although many of those who played with or against Jimmy Case would put the former Reds midfielder well out in front. Anyone on the wrong end of one of his shots certainly would.

‘Casey’ brought his own autobiography out recently but without any of the hype that accompanied the thoughts of Mr Keane. Continue Reading →

Liverpool’s summer signings – A progress report

INSPIRED by the sheer ruthlessness in front of goal provided by Daniel Sturridge and Luis Suarez, Liverpool came within a whisker of winning the Premier League title in 2013-14, eventually finishing two points behind Manchester City in second. But the departure of Suarez, coupled with the added demands of Champions League football forced Brendan Rodgers into a busy summer in the transfer market.

With so much to live up to, there has been intense scrutiny on the new faces at Melwood as the club’s form has been woefully inconsistent this time around. Of the eight that arrived, none have been spotlighted more than enigmatic Italian Mario Balotelli, who returned to England following 19 months back in Italy and has continued to be a magnet for publicity.

Audio: Reaction to LFC’s defeat in Madrid

LIVERPOOL’S defeat in Madrid last night wasn’t the end of the world and the club still have it in their hands to make it into the knockout stages. Before the game news leaked (via the Spanish press initially) that Rodgers would be making several changes to his team.

After the game Rodgers explained his decision:

COMPETITION: WIN TICKETS TO LFC ISTANBUL REUNION

Members of Liverpool’s triumphant 2005 Champions League winning squad are putting on a show next year to celebrate ten years since that crazy night – and you can be there courtesy of Anfield Road.

We’re giving away two pairs of tickets to the Istanbul Reunion Night, to be held at Liverpool’s Echo Arena on May 25 2015.

It’ll be a night to remember the highs and lows of a night that even now takes some effort to believe really happened. Three down at half time, three all at full time, Shevchenko missing that penalty. As if that wasn’t enough we then had the homecoming with the streets of Liverpool lined with fans welcoming that famous trophy to its new permanent home as well as showing their feelings for the people who brought it for us.

Istanbul Reunion

The Istanbul Reunion Night will be a one-off, for one night only, giving everyone who went through that roller coaster of a night the chance to relive the memories from what is arguably the greatest moment in Liverpool’s history.

Tickets are available now on pre-sale (visit www.5times.co/istanbul to get the code) and as you can imagine are already selling fast.

No surprise. As Jamie Carragher says: “If the fans who were in Istanbul on the night come and create that same atmosphere, the roof will come off the Arena.”

To enter our competition for tickets, answer the following question:
