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 – 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. It’s slightly weird to see him leave the club to Bayern Munich with no one actually feeling sorry to see him go. More

Liverpool FC – Luis Suarez Should Be Angry With Joe Allen

Posted on 24 Nov, 2013, by in Soccer

Putting another performance to demonstrate he’s the best striker in the Premier League isn’t enough for Luis Suarez, who is always hungry for more. Pinpointing the disappointment of only coming away with a 3-3 draw from their derby match against Everton, it all falls down to the moment Joe Allen missed an incredibly easy shot instead of passing to the more capable Suarez, wide open right next to him.

Posted on 12 Sep, 2013, by in Soccer

There’s not much more left before Luis Suarez returns from his 10-match suspension and can spearhead the Liverpool attack once more.

Liverpool FC – Simon Mignolet Has Been Worth Every Penny

Posted on 2 Sep, 2013, by in Soccer

More than anything else, Liverpool winning the Northwest derby was brought on thanks to their defensive strengths, and not the scoring ability of Daniel Sturridge. Even with Daniel Agger missing his usual partner at centre back, the ability of Simon Mignolet radiated confidence everywhere, not to mention being at the right place at the right time whenever his heroics are needed.

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

Stoke Should Stop Letting Jonathan Walters Take Penalty Kicks

Posted on 18 Aug, 2013, by in Soccer

After so many penalty kicks missed, Stoke still believe in Jonathan Walters. Or maybe their new manager, Mark Hughes, hasn’t watched enough of him in previous seasons. Seeing him miss another one, this time against Liverpool, as his shot was stopped by Simon Mignolet, shouldn’t surprise anyone. More

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