Montoya is reportedly set to join the Reds (Picture: Getty) Liverpool transfer target Martin Montoya will reportedly make a decision on his Barcelona future in the coming days. With Dani Alves signing a new deal at the Nou Camp and the acquisition of Aleix Vidal, Montoya’s situation looks to be in some doubt. The Spaniard, who is apparently being chased by Brendan Rodgers, will decide whether he wants to leave in the next few days, according to reports in Spain. The Reds have reportedly agreed terms and tabled a £7.3million bid for the defender, and it appears he could replace Glen Johnson who looks […] Read more →
Mario Balotelli celebrates scoring a Champions League goal against Ludogorets (Picture: REUTERS) Mario Balotelli has hit back at his critics over his Liverpool goalscoring record after insisting he will start netting more goals for the club. The Italian striker has endured a difficult start to life at his new club since completing a £16million move to The Reds from AC Milan in the summer, having netted just two goals in cup competitions and failing to open his goalscoring account in the Premier League. Despite struggling to replace the goals of former Liverpool star Luis Suarez in his short time in Merseyside so far, […] Read more →
Brendan Rodgers at Liverpool’s academy day this week (Picture: Getty Images) It’s been another difficult week for all involved with Liverpool – the setback of Daniel Sturridge’s latest injury arriving to cast gloom just as the clouds appeared to be parting ahead of the busy fixtures ahead. Sturridge’s injury and absence until the New Year is a huge blow, made worse by the fact he’s already missed 14 games and how badly Liverpool have clearly missed him. Eight points and only eight goals in the eight Premier League games since he last played for the Reds back in August, doesn’t paint […] Read more →
Brendan Rodgers and Mario Balotelli are yet to hum the same tune (Picture: Getty) There are many strands to management but it boils down to three areas of expertise; assembling a squad, improving your players in training and picking the right team. Slightly more nuanced but often just as vital are the subtle arts – like deflecting the blame when it all goes wrong. Jose Mourinho is a master at this. Seriously. The Chelsea boss has regularly put himself at the centre of a media firestorm to erect a smokescreen around the deficiencies of his team, allowing his players to work […] Read more →
Jamie Carragher (left) needs to return to Anfield (Picture: PA) Liverpool continue to have defensive problems despite bringing in two new full-backs and a centre-half in the summer. Dejan Lovren was heralded as a leader that could martial the Reds’ defence and prevent Rodgers’ defence from conceding too many goals, but the goals are still being leaked at the back. This is, undoubtedly, a bigger concern than last season because Liverpool are struggling to score goals with Luis Suarez no longer at Anfield and Daniel Sturridge constantly injured. Sturridge and Suarez helped paper over the cracks with their goals last […] Read more →
This is pretty awkward (Picture: Metro) It’s been well documented that Mario Balotelli is having an unproductive debut season at Liverpool, but this stat pretty much sums up how bad it has been. Balotelli has only found the net once, against lowly Ludogorets in the Champions League, but has managed to be more prolific when it comes to changing his barnet. Yep, he’s managed three different styles since arriving, starting off with a plain black Mohawk, before graduating to a wild ‘Liver bird’ effect. He’s now got a classic blonde strip across his head, but will no doubt be changing […] Read more →
