Historical Transfer News and Team Gossip has been archived below:
Ever since the appointment of Brendan Rodgers as the new manager at Liverpool following the sacking of Kenny Dalglish at the end of the season there have been many widespread rumours regarding new arrivals at the club. Rodgers has clearly stated he is looking to bolster his options in the closed season and there has been much speculation about the players he may bring in and the players that may find themselves on the way out of Anfield.
One of the main stories regarding Liverpool this summer is the future of misfiring striker Andy Carroll who cost the Merseyside club thirty five million pounds at the start of 2011. The striker is thought to be the target of many premier league sides with former club Newcastle said to be leading the chase for the players signature. Rodgers has neither stated that Carroll will leave or stay this summer amid growing speculation that the player does not feature in the managers plans as he attempts to change the style that Liverpool have become so accustomed to playing in recent years.
Belgian international Kevin Mirallas is thought to be on the top of Rodgers list this summer as the Olympiakos player has been in sensational form for the Turkish side ever since arriving from St Etienne two seasons ago. The player has managed to put away thirty four goals in forty nine starts for his current side which is a phenomenal record but Liverpool may need to fend of interest from some of Europe’s top clubs if they are to sign the striker who has a six million pound get out clause within his current contract.
Liverpool are also said to be firm in the frame to sign want away Schalke midfielder Lewis Holtby as the twenty one year old tops the list of several of the top sides in Europe. Schalke though have been very quiet on this matter as they are said to not be interested in the slightest of losing one of their most influential players with Arsenal, Everton and Manchester United also said to be in for the player.
The signing of former Roma striker Fabio Borini has been seen as a major coup for Rodgers this summer as he has worked with and been a huge admirer of the player for some time. The twenty one year old has been in great form for his previous club and is seen as a great prospect for the Merseysiders. The Italian can also play as an attacking midfielder which will be another great boost for the squad as the long term future of Steven Gerrard is not as clear as it once was due to his ill fated injury prospects as he reaches the twilight of his career.
By: brian cawte roy has to go he is a good manager at a small club but this is "LIVERPOOL" AND WERE NOT A SMALL CLUB
By: Colin1 Hodgson hasn't really got a lot to choose from. The whole team needs changing. Unfortunately you need funds for that.
By: Stephen cogley Not only is it the managers fault I also think the players should look at there displays. There trying to blame it down to ownership under hicks and co but look at man utd there in debt don't like there owners but where are they in the league so there just looking for any excuse. What excuse have they got for getting beat on sun by everton was the grass to long lads or was it cos you didn't care. The manager needs to go after all he picks the team and he is not picking the correct system we need 4 4 2 with Torres and kuyt as the 2. When kuyt first came to us he played up front as a forward and scored loads put him back where he should be.
By: Stephen cogley Think the manager should be sacked NOW before it gets worse did you see him laughing at the end of the derby defeat when he was shaking hands. No manager should be that happy his team got beat. Give the job to king kenny
By: otema julius Roy to blame not Benitez as others have stated. the best he has done at LFC is to sell good players and bring in British rejects and outcast from other PL teams. Let any body out their state the quality that make the two British players Roy bought that suits LFC (KOncasty and cole no i mean cooled).Can one compare koncesky to insua or compare Cole to Reira. P'se get rid of Roy before its too late. This one season performer is a very big liability to the team with his tactics of no-wing play but overlap by defenders.
By: redjonjo I wish I knew what hodgson drank before the game then maybe Id have seen the same great play he senn best they ahve played in a good while my arse
Liverpool FC are reportedly interested in adding to their already brilliant squad by signing Isco. Though not many saw it coming, eldesmarque.com have linked the Spanish midfielder with the Premier League table-toppers. Jurgen Klopp’s side has already signed Takumi Minamino from Red Bull Salzburg for £7.25m as a back-up option for his first choice attacking trio. They have also acquired the signature of promising youngster Joe Hardy. They might make a surprising third signing in this window or in the summer if the report is to be believed. Isco was once one of the most important members of the Real
The January transfer window has been much criticised by some managers and pundits as it disrupts teams, especially the selling team, who may have to let go of a key player. But, it also rejuvenates some teams, who buy players that could save their season or even help them win trophies. The Premier League, over the last few years, has seen several teams making huge signings in the January transfer window. Let’s take a look at the 3 most expensive Premier League transfers in the January window: Aymeric Laporte – £57 million This Premier League season has showcased what an
A look at the points table will tell us that Arsenal are currently 10th in the Premier League. But their fans are not much worried about their position. Instead, the Gunners are worried about Liverpool, for the Reds are yet to lose a match. In 22 matches so far, Liverpool have won 21 of them and have dropped just 2 points. With every passing game, they are looking more and more unlikely to drop points and now are posing a serious threat to the ‘Invincibles’ tag the Arsenal fans hold so dear, and rightly so. Jurgen Klopp’s side has mastered
Matchweek 23 of the Premier League once again produced some thrilling encounters all over the country. Manchester City and Leicester City failed to maintain the gap at the top of the table, dropping points in their league games while league leaders Liverpool managed a 2-0 win over arch-rivals Manchester United to take their lead to 16 points, with a game in hand. Tottenham Hotspur, Arsenal and Chelsea also failed to take all three points from the weekend while Watford and Norwich City managed to pick up crucial points in their scrap at the bottom of the table. There were a
Unbeatable? Every game Liverpool has lost since the beginning of last season Defeat has become a distinctly unfamiliar feeling for Liverpool in the past 18 months. And frankly, it’s getting silly at this stage. It really is. It’s almost as if Liverpool are severely allergic to losing and their very lives depend on winning. This season alone they have won 22 of their opening 23 league games, …

Two key positions Liverpool should boost this January Things are pretty rosy in the Liverpool garden right now. Champions of Europe, world champions and in a wonderful position to end their three-decade wait for an English league title, Jurgen Klopp’s Reds could not have asked for a better start to 2020. Clear at the top […] More
14 mins: Lovren spots Elliott haring forward and looks to pick the winger out with a long lofted ball. But O’Leary leaps to pluck the pass out of the sky. Nice. Then Williams finds some space on the right and puts in a wonderful – perhaps even Trentesque – cross, which just evades a queue of attackers.
11 mins: The game has settled into something of a pattern, with Shrewsbury’s players all behind the ball and Liverpool monopolising possession. They’ve lacked zip so far, though, Elliott the latest to misplace a simple pass.
9 mins: Good feet from Laurent, who pirouettes away from two markers in the centre circle, but his side are so deep and don’t have a focal point up front, so his ball forward goes to no one. Liverpool counter and Origi rifles an early sighter just wide.
5 mins: Minamino has seen plenty of the ball so far and looks a livewire, always on the move. He’s playing in the Firmino role of free-roaming centre-forward, constantly dropping deep to link up.
4 mins: Liverpool put together some purposeful early pressure, Minamino twice dispossessed while prowling in the box and Chirivella surging forward with intent.
2 mins: Whalley makes a good run and is picked out well by Golbourne. For a second it looks as though he might just be in … but the flag is up.
The hosts get going and quickly lump a high ball forward to test Larouci.
Dejan Lovren’s in a good mood – Liverpool’s captain for the day grins and giggles as he calls the toss. And it’s Shrewsbury to kick off.
The teams file on to the pitch from a pokey passage – no tunnel club here – and exchange handshakes.
Jurgen Klopp speaks briefly to the BBC and comes pretty close to a full house in cup-tie-against-an-underdog bingo: a “tough pitch”, a “big fight”, fixture congestion and hungry youngsters all get a mention. German efficiency, there.
Meanwhile, in the Women’s FA Cup, Arsenal have gone to West Ham and come away with a thumping win. Report here:
Just the 11 changes for Mr Klopp, then, although that rather underplays the strength of a side that contains two seasoned centre-halves, one thrilling new arrival, perhaps the Premier League’s best all-round midfielder, and at least two spectacularly promising teenage prodigies.
As for Sam Ricketts, his wing-back Scott Golbourne has passed a late fitness test to make it into the XI and Blackburn loanee Sam Hart is on the bench ahead of a potential debut.
They couldn’t, could they…? As the weeks tick by and the wins stack up, the vital question hanging over Liverpool’s season is becoming less about whether they can finally get their hands on That Trophy, and more about exactly which trophies they won’t get their hands on. It’s early days, of course, but Liverpool’s relentlessness is such that you could understand a rising anxiety at Old Trafford about the prospect of their Class of ‘99 finally being equalled, or similar feelings in north London regarding their fabled Invincibles. To do both at once – a supremely distant possibility, but a possibility nonetheless – well, that would leave both those history-makers in the dust.
But first things first. Shrewsbury may be 59 places below Jürgen Klopp’s men but they’ve proven a tough nut to crack in this competition in recent seasons, taking Wolves to a replay last year and West Ham the year before that. And when Liverpool take to the field at New Meadow this afternoon, they will be up against a side they have lost just one of their last 17 FA Cup fixtures on home turf.
Purists are overcoming the pragmatists because with the world watching it’s not just what you do, it’s the way that you do it
When the history comes to be written of this football season, there will be two stories that dominate. The first, barring some kind of bizarre catastrophe (which would in turn become the standout story), is Liverpool’s near faultless procession towards their first title in 30 years. The second – less impressive, perhaps, but no less commented upon – is the arrival of VAR.
Everyone has had their say on the controversial video referee and the consensus of opinion is it has ruined football. I happen to disagree, as I think it just needs to be better thought-out. Junk the nonsensical new handball law and stop absurdly marginal offside decisions (daylight between attacker and defender is a sound proposal), cut the reviews back to a strict time limit and the fuss will die down.
Grenada internationals, Aaron Pierre and Omar Beckles, look forward to Shrewsbury’s giantkilling Cup attempt at New Meadow
“I just went for it,” Aaron Pierre says modestly of the winning goal against Bristol City that earned Shrewsbury a fourth-round tie against the champions of the world. “The gaffer encourages the back three to go forward, it was the last minute of the game and anything could have happened, but luckily it worked out for me.”
And for everyone else at the League One club from Shropshire. Pierre has had his FA Cup moments before, notably when trying without much success to mark Son Heung-min while playing for Wycombe against Spurs three years ago, but Liverpool is the sort of draw that gets a club like Shrewsbury noticed, and by the time he hit his late winner in the third-round replay it had already been made.
Jürgen Klopp believes Liverpool can still improve on their outstanding season as he considers handing Fabinho, Dejan Lovren and Joël Matip their first starts of the year at Shrewsbury on Sunday.
Liverpool recorded a 22nd win from 23 Premier League matches at Wolves on Thursday to go 16 points clear at the top with a game in hand on second-placed Manchester City. Klopp is not “even 2%” thinking of a title party but the depth of his formidable squad has increased with the trio in contention to start Sunday’s FA Cup fourth-round tie.
