Keep on, keepin' on Mr. Gerrard...

With the Reds in free fall, a visit to St. James Park isn’t quite what we need right now. our last 2 league matches have been dour affairs, with a last gasp loss to QPR being compounded by a embarrassing rollicking at the hands of Wigan. A few years ago, a trip to Tyneside would have been a good place to stop the skid. Not anymore. Newcastle sit an astounding eight points, and one place, ahead of us in the standings and with the chance of us catching them looking more like a pipe dream and less like a reality, there’s a real sense of foreboding hanging over our trip up North. On December 31st, we rolled over the Barcodes by a resounding 3-1 scoreline, still it was a nervy finish to a match that could have just as easily gone the other way.

As a reminder, our contest to win an LFC home kit ends on the 30th at midnight. As of right now, there is only a few entries so the odds of winning are better than average. I never thought it would be so hard to give away a free home shirt. It’s simple: take a picture of an ugly shirt you own, post it HERE. It doesn’t matter where you’re from. We will get it to you if you win. As an added bonus, we promise not to spam your email with naked pictures of our staff (unless you’re into that sort of thing). Thanks to SoccerPro.com for making this possible. Visit our Contest Page for more details.

Jordan Henderson still needs a little more time in the oven before he’s lighting up the league, but if God forbid this football thing doesn’t work out, he’ll need to find something else to do besides acting. The Liverpool youngster will be appearing in a new mini-game launching in mid-April on the IAMPLAYR.com website and shot a quick promo with Scouse comedian Darren Farley to promote it. While the Jamie Carragher impersonator does a class job of keeping it together, Jordan has a bit of a hard time holding it all together. The News Desk isn’t one to judge, since we come down with a case of the giggles at least once a day, but really Jordan? We’re a desk and you’re a professional footballer. A England man should hold a tad more dignity, no?

Ok, we didn’t think so either.

This is Fenway.

We talked about it over a year ago, but now the rumours that had every Red in North America salivating have come to fruition. Earlier today, the Liverpool hierarchy confirmed a pre-season friendly with AS Roma at Boston’s Fenway Stadium on the 25th of July as part of a tour of the USA that will include at least one more competitive match. It’s been a number of years since Steven Gerrard and the boys made their way across the pond and the news will be met with a sense of euphoria in a bewilderment at the odd looking pitch. Fenway Park, home of the FSG owned Boston Red Sox, is celebrating it’s 100th birthday this year and the visit of the famous Kopites will be one of many events to mark it’s centenary. The News Desk will have more on this if and when tickets are in our greedy little hands.

(Disclaimer: This is a very long post, about a player who we possibly may never sign. If you have something more important to do with your life, do it now. If you want to find out more about potential LFC target Jackson Martínez, please read on.)

This, ladies and gentlemen, is Jaguares de Chiapas striker Jackson Martínez. A current Colombian international, captain of his Mexican Primera División side, and the second highest goal scorer in Jaguares’ history, Martínez’ stock is rising in world football, thanks mainly for his ability to score goals.

It is not the number of goals as much as it is the manner of scoring that I find particularly impressive – although he has scored an incredible number of goals, both with Jaguares and Colombian club side Deportiva Independiente Medellín, with whom he won a title in 2009.

And on top of his abundantly evident goal threat, Martínez carries something of an interest in LFC. Twice in the last 6 months he has publicly commented that Liverpool is an interesting option for him, but pausing to add earlier this month that there’s “still nothing concrete”. The mere fact he’s talking about us suggests he’s open to a move, but is he good enough for Liverpool? Would he improve our stuttering form in front of goal that has cost us so dearly in our current league campaign?
