Hull City Buildup: Bruce is Disappointed, Hernandez Gets Emotional and Ben Arfa’s Fragility

While much of Liverpool’s pre-match press is sure to be dominated with their post-match hangover following yesterday’s loss to reigning European champions Real Madrid, Hull City go into Saturday’s meeting on a decidedly different narrative. Last weekend’s draw with Arsenal at the Emirates Stadium came as a bit of a shock — and not so…

Liverpool (0) Real Madrid (3): Reigning Champions Show Shambolic Reds a Thing or Three

There was a point in and around the 65th minute when, after cutting Liverpool’s defense open far too easily with a mesmerizing passing move, Real Madrid forward Karim Benzema shared a chuckle with his team-mates after coming within inches of helping his side add a fourth goal. At times it was just that easy. Following…

Real Madrid Champions League Preview: Reds on the High End of Low as Reigning Champs Roll into Town

After labouring to a last gasp win against bottom of the barrel Queens Park Rangers on Sunday, there’s absolutely no question that Liverpool are going to have to do better if they’re going to get anything at all when they host Real Madrid at Anfield on Wednesday. To be fair, when I say “anything”, that’s…

Brendan Rodgers on QPR Win: Post Match Interview and Nowhere Near Expectations

With the match tied at two a piece and mere minutes to go, I don’t think anyone thought that Liverpool was going to get out of Loftus Road with all three points. Low and behold, Raheem Sterling saw another of his crosses diverted past QPR ‘keeper Alex McCarthy in what was to be their final…

Liverpool (3) Queens Park Rangers (2): More Than We Deserved is Enough for Us

Liverpool traveled to London yesterday needing a win to get their season well and truly rolling, and despite deserving less than nothing from a match that bottom of the barrel Queens Park Rangers dominated throughout, they left the Capital with all three points and a bump into fifth place.

We’re this much better now

While much of Liverpool’s pre-match press is sure to be dominated with their post-match hangover following yesterday’s loss to reigning European champions Real Madrid, Hull City go into Saturday’s meeting on a decidedly different narrative.

Last weekend’s draw with Arsenal at the Emirates Stadium came as a bit of a shock — and not so much that they got out of London with a point to their names. Not only did they lead for much of the match, but the Tigers also quite easily absorbed whatever pressure their hosts were able to muster; to be fair, it comes as a surprise that they weren’t three points better off by the time they rolled out of the capital.

Lowlights? Yeah, we got those.

There was a point in and around the 65th minute when, after cutting Liverpool’s defense open far too easily with a mesmerizing passing move, Real Madrid forward Karim Benzema shared a chuckle with his team-mates after coming within inches of helping his side add a fourth goal. At times it was just that easy.

Following an opening twenty minutes in which the hosts pressed their Spanish guests with the kind of gusto one would expect from a team managed by Brendan Rodgers, a moment of brilliance from Cristiano Ronaldo opened the scoring with a sublime effort before the floodgates swung open. While the worlds best player showed his class with the opener, what followed was, and it hurts to say this, what is becoming part and parcel of the Liverpool experience.

Big Game Balotelli

Following the narrow win over Queens Park Rangers at the weekend, Liverpool striker Mario Balotelli has come in for even more criticism with the hit-man spurning a number of chances at Loftus Road.

Although he didn’t sound entirely convincing, Reds boss Brendan Rodgers threw some much needed support behind the embattled 24-year old ahead of their meeting with Real Madrid at Anfield later today. “He scores big goals in big games” said the Northern Irishman of the misfiring Italian striker. “I’m sure he will go into tomorrow, if picked, looking forward. It is just a matter of time before he gets his goals.”
