Liverpool FC – Glen Johnson Doesn’t [email protected]#$ Up For Once

Posted on 30 Nov, 2014, by in Soccer

It’s a bad, disappointing and weird season for Liverpool. So weird that it turns out benching Steven Gerrard isn’t such a bad idea, and getting rescued by Glen Johnson twice in one match actually results in victory. More

Liverpool FC – Daniel Sturridge Needs a Striker Next to Him

Posted on 18 Aug, 2014, by in Soccer

Despite the enthusiasm, Raheem Sterling doesn’t create another SAS partnership with Daniel Sturridge. Liverpool, as their second half of an opening win clearly showed, need another striker to make their best formation work. Rickie Lambert might not be the best solution, but for now he’s the best solution for a dual-striker partnership the club has. More

Liverpool FC – Luis Suarez Gets His Goals Eventually

Posted on 8 Dec, 2013, by in Soccer

Unlike previous years, Liverpool are picking up the points they’re meant to, which means that through a comfortable opening schedule, they’ve had very few results one could call disappointing. However, things get tougher very soon, and for that, it’s going to take a lot more than Luis Suarez and his incredible scoring ability to remain among the top 4 with a slight advantage in the race to a Champions League ticket.

Liverpool FC – Luis Suarez Makes Tactics Look Great

Posted on 27 Oct, 2013, by in Soccer

There’s a chance that the whole summer saga has actually turned Luis Suarez into a better player. Maybe in the back of his mind he hated Brendan Rodgers and still wants to leave Liverpool, but it really doesn’t matter as he scores hat tricks, forms a deadly partnership with Daniel Sturridge and makes the unusual team tactics seem perfectly natural.

Liverpool FC – Glen Johnson is a Problem & Opportunity All at Once

Posted on 13 Sep, 2013, by in Soccer

Despite all of the signings made by Liverpool this summer, they do lack depth at certain position, highlighted by the latest Glen Johnson injury, which will probably force Brendan Rodgers to use someone who isn’t natural to the right back position, or a player like Andre Wisdom who doesn’t provide the skill set the manager wants to see in the position.

Liverpool FC – Luis Suarez Very Happy About Philippe Coutinho

Posted on 3 Mar, 2013, by in Soccer

If you thought Luis Suarez was happy about getting a striker to play next to in Daniel Sturridge (missing the match due to injury), having an attacking midfielder in the mold of classic playmakers like Philippe Coutinho feeding him through balls is probably making him, and everyone on the Liverpool team, more than slightly happy.

Liverpool FC – Luis Suarez Has to Play Next to Daniel Sturridge

Posted on 18 Feb, 2013, by in Soccer

If recent weeks haven’t proven it already, the 5-0 demolition of Swansea showed Brendan Rodgers what everybody knows – Liverpool have to play with two forwards, strikers more likely, in the lineup. Fabio Borini is once again injured, so as it should be, it’s pretty much up to Luis Suarez and Daniel Sturridge. More

Liverpool FC – Steven Gerrard & Joe Allen Doesn’t Work

Posted on 15 Feb, 2013, by in Soccer

Instead of moving forward, Liverpool take steps back. Further from contention for a European spot in the Premier League, and not really in a good position to turn their Europa League knockout tie on its head, as Brendan Rodgers learnt once more that playing with Steven Gerrard and Joe Allen together isn’t good for a team that simply doesn’t know how to play defensively.

Lucian Bute Still a Mystery

Posted on 6 Nov, 2011, by in Boxing

Now, after beating Glen Johnson, Lucian Bute, the Romanian – Canadian IBF Super Middleweight champion is 30-0 with 24 knockouts in his career. Still, the unimpressive line of fighters he’s beaten for the past 8 years leaves us doubtful as to where he ranks among the world’s best. More
