Sturridge and Ibe in “hip-hop battle”

International Champions CupBRENDAN RODGERS and his Liverpool side are out in the States as part of their pre-season preparations and, of course, to ‘build the brand’. Away from all the marketing speak it’s an opportunity for the club’s legion of fans based across the pond to see their heroes in person, something fans back home in England maybe take a touch for granted.

As always the club will look to involve its stars in local culture in some way and in New York last week that entailed getting a couple of players to take up a challenge relating to hip-hop.

Daniel Sturridge and Jordan Ibe were the pair selected for this task and LFCTV caught it all on camera, as seen below.

If you haven’t got time to watch the whole quiz yet there’s also a shorter clip featuring Sturridge performing a Drake song:

Tonight the Reds take on their old rivals from down the East Lancs, Manchester United, in the final of the tournament they have been competing in whilst over in the US. The Guinness International Champions Cup (not to be confused with the UEFA Champions League, which of course Manchester United aren’t involved in this season) comes to an end with the two North West England giants taking each other on in Miami. Kick-off is 8pm local time, 1am Tuesday morning UK time.

What does the 2014/2015 season hold for Liverpool?

THE Anfield faithful have always held a strong belief that their team will once again compete for major honours following a relatively barren spell from the Champions League triumph in 2005. Their dreams and aspirations may now be met by Liverpool’s resurgence as a major Premier League contender following a wonderful 2013/2014 campaign where they came so close to lifting the title. Lessons were learnt from the manner in which Liverpool threw away a wonderful opportunity to win their first league title since 1990, but it should take nothing away from the excellent job Brendan Rodgers has done to make the club competitive again.

Could the 2014/15 season be a winner for Liverpool?

LIVERPOOL saw their hopes and dreams of winning the Premier League dashed this year as they were pipped at the post by fellow North Western rivals Manchester City.

The Reds had a devastating loss after finishing second with 84 points, while Manchester City beat West Ham United to leave them top of the league with 86. With such a close final result, Brendan Rodgers will surely be hoping he can strengthen the team’s weak spots and help secure their first ever Premier League victory in the 2014/25 season.

Liverpool will be kicking off the Premier League on 16th August with a match against Southampton, which should make for a particularly interesting game given the team’s recent transfers. Rodgers has poached both forward Rickie Lambert and midfielder Adam Lallana from Southampton, guaranteeing good chemistry between the two for their first match. Continue Reading →

LFC reveal menacing new third kit

FOLLOWING on from the brand-new all-red and brand-new all-yellow kits, Liverpool today officially revealed the third of their new kits for the summer, this time in all-black. With red on it. Not quite Dennis the Menace – and just as well, given the imminent departure of Gnasher.

The kit will be used as a “third kit” in domestic games and as the away kit in the Champions League, where Liverpool will be making their first appearance since the departure of Rafa Benitez.

VIDEO: Adam Lallana joins LFC – “I can’t wait to get started”

ADAM LALLANA has signed for Liverpool from Southampton as the Reds continue to add new faces to the squad that finished second in last season’s Premier League. Lallana is the second of those new faces to come from Southampton, joining former Saints team-mate Rickie Lambert who signed before the World Cup.

The 26-year-old expressed his gratitude to his old club, where he began as a schoolboy, but was eager to get this new stage of his life underway: “I’d like to thank everyone at Southampton for what they have done for me,” he told LFCTV, “I’ve been there for the best part of 14 years.

CHIELLINI: SUAREZ BAN “EXCESSIVE”

ITALY’S Giorgio Chiellini, the player on the receiving end of Luis Suarez’s latest on-pitch indiscretion, says the Uruguayan’s punishment from FIFA was too harsh.

FIFA acted after video footage showed Suarez apparently sinking his teeth into Chiellini’s shoulder, fining him two-and-a-half days’ wages, banning him for nine international games and adding a complete ban from football for four months. That four month ban not only means he misses 13 Liverpool games, it also means he can’t even set foot inside a football stadium until the end of October.

Chiellini is more upset about Italy’s early elimination from FIFA’s World Cup in Brazil, the Azzurri following their victory over Roy Hodgson’s England with defeats to Costa Rica and Uruguay.

Suarez fit for the World Cup? Try and stop him.

WHEN Liverpool fans first heard that Luis Suarez had been injured in training for Uruguay and needed surgery the instant reaction was one of fear: Could this mean he missed a chunk of another season for the Reds? Then word came out that it was the kind of injury that takes anything from two to six weeks to recover from, meaning he’d be over it by the time he was due back for preseason at Melwood. Relief. Then the fear returned with the realisation that Uruguay might be more concerned about getting some use out of one of their most important players than about his availability for a domestic league season.

Would they rush him back too soon?

The problem is, if Suarez does make his comeback from injury a little quicker than The Reds’ medical staff back in England would like, it’ll be as much down to Luis Suarez as it will be down to the Uruguayan staff. Imagine trying to stop Luis Suarez from getting on that pitch. The boy lives to play, lives to win, if he can walk he’ll try and get on that pitch.
