Simon Mignoletseals his future with Liverpool

Thursday, January 28th, 2016

Simon Mignolet has secured his future with the Premier League club Liverpool at least until 2021 but this is a decision that has brought mixed reactions to the supporters of the English team as Mignolet has certainly made a number of impressive performances but there have been a few occasions in which the Belgian shot-stopper has let down the team.

Consistency is not the strong suit of Mignolet but nonetheless, it seems like everything he has done with Liverpool has been enough for him to secure his long term future in Anfield.

“I’m very pleased that I can be at Anfield and a part of Liverpool for a long future. I know signing a new contract comes with new responsibility. I’m getting older as well and coming into the years where people would say those are the years a ‘keeper is at his best. I know with a long-term contract, you get more responsibility and I want to take up that role because I’m the sort of character that wants to be a leader, wants to speak in the dressing room and wants to help the defence’’ Liverpool’s Simon Mignolet said as he expressed his happiness in signing a contract renewal.

The Belgian goal-keeper struggles when it comes to distributing the ball and trying to command his penalty area as he has made consistent errors throughout the last 3 Premier League seasons which has led to Liverpool dropping points on important matches. (more…)

Danny Ings doing very well

Thursday, July 23rd, 2015

Very few are able to come through the ranks as quickly as Danny Ings has done.

It’s not that long when he was featuring for Donchester Town, a division six team at that point of time.

Just a few seasons down the line from there, he would find himself rubbing shoulders with some of the biggest names in the circuit in the English Premier League.

The youngster has penned a Liverpool deal recently and he is absolutely over the moon to have joined a cub with such a history about it.

Talking about his new journey and what he is looking forward to, the forward who is only 22 at the moment, said, “I can’t express my excitement. To have this opportunity coming my way this soon, it’s unbelievable. But, I know I need to work on my game even more if I have to prove myself at this level.”

“You can never allow yourself to get complacent as a player and I am not such a character to take things for granted. I believe improvement is the key for a young player and for that, you always have to put the hard yards.”

When asked about Brendan Rodgers and how he sees him as a Football manager, Ings said, “He deserves a lot of respect for his work at Liverpool over the recent years. If you are a youngster, he is exactly the type of person you want to work with because he would always back you and would give you a lot of opportunities.” (more…)

Brendan Rodgers has refused to criticise Steven Gerrard

Wednesday, April 1st, 2015

Liverpool boss Brendan Rodgers has refused to criticise Steven Gerrard for playing a huge role in the 2-1 defeat against Manchester United. The Liverpool captain came on as a substitute at half-time, but his influence on the match lasted just 38 seconds after he was sent off for a clear stamp on Ander Herrera.

Gerrard had made a crunching tackle on Juan Mata only seconds before. The sending-off changed the game in many ways. Even though it helped Liverpool get a late equaliser through Daniel Sturridge, they were unable to push on and get the much-needed equaliser.

There was a feeling that Liverpool would not have conceded the second goal in the 59th minute if Liverpool had the full complement of players. The club could not question the decision taken by referee Martin Atkinson, as the Liverpool midfielder intentionally made a stamp onHerrera. Gerrard was expected to make a major impact in the match – after having done so in the last eight Manchester derbies. This match was especially important to the 34-year-old, as it would be his last Manchester Derby. Gerrard is leaving for LA Galaxy at the end of the season. He has already spoken about helping Liverpool finish in the top four and lift the FA Cup title before departing. (more…)

Tony Pulis speculates of Saido leaving Club in January

Tuesday, January 27th, 2015

West Brom manager Tony Pulis has admitted that striker Saido Berahino could leave the club before the end of the January transfer window amidst interest from Liverpool. It is believed that the Merseyside outfit are ready to cut their losses on Mario Balotelli and bring inBerahino.

The England U21 international has been in fine form this season and his nine goals is significantly better than Balotelli, who is yet to open his league tally for the season.Berahino is reportedly valued in excess of £ 25 million by West Brom and Pulis has said that the club will sell him only if they receive an unbelievable offer.

Berahino was a relatively unknown quantity just 12 months ago, but he has come through into the first-team by showing incredible maturity and composure for his age. (more…)

Lawrenson wants Liverpool to sell Johnson

Thursday, December 18th, 2014

Former Liverpool defender Mark Lawrenson says that he expects his former club to finally sell defender Glen Johnson during the January transfer window. The former Chelsea right back was brought to Liverpool in 2009 for £ 16 million from Portsmouth. He has been a major hit at Anfield after being first-team regular from the start. Johnson has not had much competition in his position, but this has finally changed after the arrival of Javi Manquillo in the summer. The Atletico Madrid player may have joined only a loan deal, but Liverpool have the option to buy him on a permanent basis in the summer.

Looking at the performances of the young Spaniard, it is looking highly likely that Liverpool will not think twice about parting with the £ 6 million transfer fee thought to be demanded by Atletico.

Johnson is on the wrong side of 30 and his performances in recent months have not inspired a lot of confidence in the team. A succession of injury problems coupled with poor form have seen Johnson lose his first-team spot to the likes of Javi Manquillo. Lawrenson also says that manager Brendan Rodgers does have enough options in the youth academy with the likes of Jon Flanagan pushing for a starting spot.

“Roy Hodgson effectively called time on Glen Johnson’s England career last week. And I wouldn’t be surprised if the right-back finds himself heading elsewhere in the New Year. Having not yet been given a new contract, it’s clear Johnson is not part of Liverpool’s long-term plans, with Javi Manquillo and, when fit, Jon Flanagan vying for the right-back slot.

Johnson can walk away from Anfield for nothing in the summer.So I’d expect the Reds to look to cash in on him in January,” said Lawrenson. Johnson’s contract expires in the summer and there have been no new talks.
