Liverpool (1) Crystal Palace (3): Fairy-Tale Endings Rarely Happen

There’s no eloquent way to start this off and I won’t even try; that’s not the ending that anyone expected and certainly not the farewell that Liverpool captain Steven Gerrard deserved. That being said, quite often only fairy tales end the way you’d expect. Adam Lallana looked to be sticking to the prescribed plot when…

New deals

Raheem Sterling’s contract saga may be rumbling on with even more twists and turns adding intrigue to the plot, but two Liverpool players took dramatically different paths than the 20-year old with Jordon Ibe agreeing to a new five year deal and Jon Flanagan extending his current agreement by one more year.

“I’m over the moon. It’s something I’ve been looking forward to. I’ve spoken to the gaffer and I’m happy it’s over and done with. Now I just want to kick on into next season, as well as the last game of this one,” Ibe told the club’s official website. “Liverpool are a great club and I like the philosophy here. I’m enjoying it – I’ve just been brought into the first team and I’ve enjoyed the games I’ve played in. Hopefully I can just keep doing well at the club.”

It’s not you, it’s your agent…

Well this is deteriorating quickly, now isn’t it? Planned talks between Liverpool and Raheem Sterling’s agent Aidy Ward that were set for Friday have now been cancelled with the player’s representative launching a scathing attack against the club and pundits that are criticizing his handling of the 20-year old.

After initially playing down rumours that his client would reject any future offers from the Reds with an eye towards leaving in the summer, the tide has since turned dramatically. “I don’t care about the PR of the club and the club situation. I don’t care. He is definitely not signing. He’s not signing for £700, £800, £900 thousand a week. He is not signing,” Ward is quoted as saying in the London Evening Standard. “My job is to make sure I do the best with them (my clients). If people say I am bad at my job, or they are badly advised it does not matter.”

Pipe down

Although Liverpool boss Brendan Rodgers could still end up getting the axe from the Reds American owners when he meets with hatchet man Mike Gordon at Anfield later on this month, multiple sources are saying the main talking point on the table, besides this abject failure of a season, will be the clubs transfer policy and the committee supposedly at the helm of it.

Despite spending over an above the insane amount of money they flogged bite happy star striker Luis Suarez off to Spanish giants Barcelona for, not a single signing made by Liverpool made a significant impact on Merseyside this season. Now, only a crass, ignorant nincompoop would paint all of them with the same brush with a number of mitigating circumstances interrupting the development or integration of a few of them, but by and all, there’s something rotten in L4.

Alberto isn’t making a fuss

Mention the Europa League to Liverpool supporters and we may make a funny face, but Reds fullback Alberto Moreno, who won the competition with Spanish side Sevilla last season, isn’t grimacing at the prospect of playing in it next season.

At the end of the day, for the 22-year old anyway, silverware is silverware. “I’m a big fan of the Europa League, you know I can go home and look at my medal in my trophy cabinet at home which I’ve already won, I love it,” he told the Liverpool ECHO. “For any player and any fan, winning any trophy – not least at a European level – is absolutely something positive. We always want to win trophies, let’s face it, and I enjoyed it when we won.”

I’m going where, now?

With Raheem Sterling looking likely to leave Anfield this summer, Liverpool will be looking to replace the pacey winger with a players that can operate in a similar role. Although youngster Jordon Ibe looks like he’ll be up for the challenge in the future, the Reds could really use a ready made replacement for the here and now.

While it might seem like a bit of a long-shot, that player could very well be Barcelona attacker Pedro Rodriguez with a number of sources citing that not only is he unhappy with the pecking order at the Camp Nou, but that the Catalan giants would entertain offers in the region of £7mil for his services — quite a bit below what you’d expect a forward of his ability to command in the transfer market.
