 Very few – if any – footballers have had a better ecstasy witnessed by Dirk Kuyt as he threw the Eredivisie trophy into the jubilating atmosphere of the city of Rotterdam few weeks ago.

Francesco Totti for one can object, afterall the 40-year old on the last day of the Serie A season and in his last match as a professional footballer, with the score tied at 2-2, scored the last goal to paint off an emotional goodbye to Romans as they wept for the exit of a living monument.

Bring up as many examples you can and still, you will struggle to put a blind eye on the reality so good it sounds more like a fairy tale – a 36-year old veteran scoring a hat trick to lead his boyhood club to a title they failed to win for 18 years.

When Kuyt left Feyenoord for Liverpool big things were expected of him, given how he topped the Eredivisie’s scoring chart. Liverpool was his first stop on his sojourn away from The Netherlands. Although he ended up collecting only one League Cup in 2006despite being largely phenomenal throughout his stay at Anfield. (more…)

Christian Benteke Reflects on His Time at Liverpool

Thursday, September 22nd, 2016

Christian Benteke recently brought his time at Liverpool to an end after making a move to Crystal Palace.

He has become the record signing at the London outfit after having cost almost £ 30 million. Liverpool have been able to recoup most of the transfer fee that they paid for the striker one year ago. Brendan Rodgers expected the Belgian international to be the final piece in the jigsaw. After all, he has scored plenty of goals even with a struggling Aston Villa team and was only expected to be better at Liverpool surrounded by a number of world-class players.

This was not the case as Benteke never settled under the tactics of Rodgers. The Northern Ireland manager is someone who likes to play his football on the ground, while Benteke is at his strongest when the ball is whipped into the box with a lot of pace. The powerful presence of the Belgian couple of with his ability to attack headers made him a force to be reckoned with. Even after the exit of Rodgers midway through the season,Benteke’s situation did not improve since his replacement Jurgen Klopp also had similar tactics. Now, the striker has lashed out on those who have branded him as a flop.

English Premier League team, Liverpool FC are reported to be involved in a mega-money takeover bid. The takeover is from the Middle East. According to Starsport, talks are at an advanced stage with prospective owners. The deal is one that would avail current head coach of The Reds huge transfer funds to acquire the best talents and take Liverpool higher.

The deal is reported to be a possibility this summer. English team, Liverpool, currently owned by Fenway Sports Group, is valued around £650m. The American sports investment company bought The Reds for £300m in October 2010. The team has since increased in value. It was ranked the eight most valuable football club by Forbes. The ranking considered top clubs worldwide in the survey but ranked The Reds that much due to the brand built overtime.

The team is currently 9th in the EPL with 2 games in hand. However, the team has had decent performance over the recent time in the league. Liverpool narrowly lost the capital one cup to Manchester city this season. The keenly contested match ended in a penalty shoot-out where their rivals proved better.

Liverpool manager Kenny Dalglish has criticised both Andy Carroll and Pepe Reina after the 2-0 defeat suffered at the hands of Newcastle United during the weekend. Following the loss, Liverpool now trail Newcastle United in the sixth place by a massive level 11 points with only seven games remaining in the season.

A lot of indiscipline was displayed by the Liverpool players during the match against Newcastle. As a result, Dalglish has criticised both the players who were the chief culprits in the match – Andy Carroll and Pepe Reina. Former Newcastle striker Carroll received a caution in the first half after a dive, while Pepe Reina was sent off in the match following a head butt of a Newcastle player.

Andy Carroll was substituted in the 80th minute after a very poor performance, but it brought out the worst in the striker after this apparent displeasure over the substitution. The striker angrily remarked at the bench while going down the tunnel. Reina also was involved in an altercation with Newcastle United player James Perch, which left the Liverpool goalkeeper with a red card to his name. As a result, he will be missing the next three matches for Liverpool including the huge semi-final clash with Everton in the FA Cup.

“We have not got a problem with people showing desperation or disappointment or frustration but we need to channel it better than we have done. It ended up with a lot of frustration and disappointment and I think the frustration and disappointment was a result of the actions that Pepe took. He got a deserved red card, and then Andy came off and went up the tunnel,” said Dalglish. Dalglish has come under criticism for the poor run of Liverpool, which has been their worst in more than 50 years.
