Liverpool FC – Mamadou Sakho Has a Bright Future at His New Club

Posted on 18 Sep, 2013, by in Soccer

It seems like Mamadou Sakho arriving at Anfield has come just in time, with Daniel Agger picking up a rib injury that might keep him out for at least one match.

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 – Daniel Sturridge & Simon Mignolet In Charge of Perfect Start

Posted on 25 Aug, 2013, by in Soccer

It’s funny to think that Daniel Sturridge might have been the odd man out in the Liverpool striker situation considering his prolific start to the season while Luis Suarez is out, suspended. On the other end of the pitch, another recent signing, Simon Mignolet, is making up for his transfer fee and for the man he replaced between the posts after only two matches. More

Liverpool FC – Kolo Toure is the Centre Back They Need

Posted on 20 Aug, 2013, by in Soccer

While Liverpool have been quite busy (and unsuccessful) in the transfer market this summer looking for a centre back, one of their lower-profile signings, bringing in Kolo Toure on a free transfer, might have been the answer to their defensive problems. More

Liverpool FC – Daniel Sturridge Doesn’t Care Who Is Next to Him

Posted on 18 Aug, 2013, by in Soccer
