Liverpool FC – Pepe Reina Leaves as an Unwanted Man

Posted on 6 Aug, 2014, by in Soccer

There were times during the eight seasons Pepe Reina played for Liverpool that he looked like the best goalkeeper in the Premier League. That wasn’t the case in recent seasons, and it was quite clear that no matter what, he wasn’t going to play again under Brendan Rodgers.

Liverpool FC – Brendan Rodgers Doesn’t Need to Make Too Many Changes

Posted on 14 May, 2013, by in Soccer

From pessimism early on, to fierce optimism later, and a more realistic approach as Liverpool end the 2012-2013 season without a European spot clinched for next season. And still, Brendan Rodgers has plenty of attacking talent on the team: Luis Suarez, Daniel Sturridge, Philippe Coutinho and others, which leaves him in need of a less than drastic change to push Liverpool a little bit higher next season.
