West Bromwich Albion Preview: There’s More than Enough Talent to Expect a Performance

After their disappointing display at Wembley last weekend, if Liverpool still have any realistic hope of salvaging what has been a miserable season, they’re going to have to kick-start a revival against West Bromwich Albion tomorrow. This club might be all about winning trophies, but at this point in time, qualifying for the Champions League…


West Bromwich Albion Buildup: Kemp Changes the Perspective, Pocognoli Doesn’t Understand and Fletcher Likes the Attitude

They might be mired in a bit of a relegation scrap at the moment, but after losing out to Aston Villa in the FA Cup semi-final last weekend, West Bromwich Albion is one of the last teams they would have wanted to try to bounce back against. You can double down on that statement now…


Liverpool (1) Aston Villa (2): You’re Never Going to Luck into a Trophy

What’s really odd about this is that only a couple of years ago, we were the team for the big occasion. Maybe it’s the hang-over talking, to be fair I’m not too sure, but I’m really concerned about our penchant for stumbling at the worst time. Against the run of play Philippe Coutinho continued his uncanny knack for…


Aston Villa FA Cup Preview: We’re Prepared to Do Things the Hard Way

If you think we’ve got one foot in the final, you’re just flat out wrong. I’ve banged on all season about there being no easy matches, and despite Aston Villa’s struggles in the Premier League, this falls firmly in line with what I’ve been saying. We’ve seen miraculous things at Wembley down the years and…


Aston Villa FA Cup Build-up: Sherwood Will Enjoy Himself, Benteke Does What He Wants and Cleverley Believes in Magic

Aston Villa’s Premier League status isn’t completely safe quite yet, but the Villans won’t be worrying about that one bit for at least a little while with Sunday’s FA Cup semi-final meeting with Liverpool taking the focus directly off the relegation scrap. After bringing in former Tottenham Hotspur boss Tim Sherwood for the struggling Paul Lambert…

When Liverpool boss Brendan Rodgers took over at Anfield in the summer of 2012, Jordan Henderson looked almost certain to leave the club with the former Sunderland man resigned to the bench for much of the Northern Irishman’s first year in charge. Growing in leaps and bounds over the last two seasons, the 24-year old is now the favourite to take over the captain’s armband from the outgoing Steven Gerrard as he put a pen to paper on a lucrative five-year deal yesterday.

In one ear and out the other

With the long term futures of Daniel Sturridge, Philippe Coutinho and now Jordan Henderson wrapped up, the focus will no doubt be doubled up in the coming weeks on contract rebel Raheem Sterling, but in a recent interview, the Reds winger reiterated that he’s not going to let it throw him for a loop.

“Everyone has their opinion on me at this moment in time but I’m just a kid who loves to play football and to try and improve every day and be the best I can be,” said the 20-year old when asked about being criticized by sections of the Liverpool support and in the media. “It just goes in one ear and goes out the other. I don’t read anything, don’t look at anything and, for me, it’s all football. I’m genuinely focused on doing my best for this football club.”

How about an update?

Liverpool resume their push for a top four finish when they visit the Hawthorns on Saturday, but much like the surprising loss to Aston Villa last weekend, they’ll be doing it without a number of key players.

Lucas Leiva and Mamadou Sakho, who have both been key to the Reds recent defensive revival, remain sidelined with their respective injuries and will not travel with the squad to the West Midlands. Daniel Sturridge, who also sat out the debacle in the capital with an ongoing hip problem adding heaping even more misery on what’s already been a miserable season, remains unavailable with Reds boss Brendan Rodgers unsure when he’ll be fit and firing. “We’re unsure at this moment” said the Northern Irishman in his pre-match press conference. “He’s certainly not available for the weekend.”

Although Liverpool will resume their chase for Champions League football this weekend when they visit West Bromwich Albion, after crashing out of the FA Cup in such a spectacular fashion on Sunday, much of Liverpool boss Brendan Rodgers pre-match press conference predictably revolved around that. With speculation surrounding his future once again swirling, the Northern Irishman talked at length about his ambition for the club and how it relates to the owners vision of how they will move forward.

Five more years

Ending months of speculation, Liverpool vice-captain Jordan Henderson has put pen to paper on a new five-year deal that will see him almost double his salary and stay at the club until the year 2020.

“I’m over the moon that it’s finally done. There has been talk about it for a while now,” the vice-captain told the club’s official website after putting pen to paper. “I really feel that it’s a good time for us to look forward to the future, with the squad we’ve got, the manager, the size of the club and the fans we’ve got. I really think, over the next few years, we can challenge and start winning trophies. That’s the next phase; we’ve improved massively over the last few years, and I think the next phase for us is to start challenging for titles and trophies as well.”
