Liverpool (0) Hull City (1): That Sums This Season Up Nicely

That’s Liverpool’s hopes of securing a top four finish done and dusted then; after Manchester United slipped up to Everton at the weekend, the Reds had a perfect opportunity to steal a march on their bitterest rivals, but their lethargic display at the KC Stadium will almost certainly cost them a place in Europe’s elite…

Liverpool (0) West Bromwich Albion (0): It’s Not a Point Gained if it’s an Opportunity Wasted

The hits just keep on coming; under normal circumstances you may call that a point gained, but considering how we controlled such a large portion of the match, Saturday’s goalless draw with West Bromwich Albion turned out to be very much an opportunity wasted. Jordon Ibe smacked a shot off the crossbar after good interplay…

Liverpool pulled within touching distance of top four rivals Manchester United with a last gasp win against relegation threatened QPR yesterday on Merseyside. Philippe Coutinho’s first half effort was nullified when Leroy Fer volleyed the visitors back in to the match with just under 20-minutes left to play, but Reds captain Steven Gerrard dusted himself off after seeing his spot-kick saved by Rangers ‘keeper Rob Green to glance in a header and seal the points for the Anfield outfit.

The skipper rounds out the highlights

Steven Gerrard’s penultimate home match of a storied career looked almost certain to end in despair after the skipper missed a chance to send his side ahead from the penalty spot, but a late header from the mercurial captain ensured that he not only left the pitch to a standing ovation, but that his side also retained their outside chance of sneaking into the top four.

Philippe Coutinho, in typical fashion, put the Reds in the drivers seat as the hosts bossed Queens Park Rangers all over the pitch, but they paid dearly after squandering a number of good chances when Leroy Fer volleyed home a Joey Barton corner. Hoops defender Nedum Onuoha was shown a yellow card on either side of Gerrard’s poor spot-kick as the visitors looked to hang on for a much needed point, but the 34-year old got on the end of a well taken Coutinho corner late on to snap the Anfield outfits poor run of form.

Sticking around

Although Liverpool have been widely tipped to sign a new goalkeeper to provide both cover and competition for Simon Mignolet, in a surprising move, they have offered a new deal to long-standing number-two Brad Jones.

The Australian shot-stopper moved to Anfield from Middlesbrough back in 2010 and it was expected that the 33-year old would be on his way out the door this summer when his deal expires having made only 25-appearances for the first team since arriving on Merseyside five years ago. Now, it would appear that the club has changed their mind and will look to retain the services of Jones for at least a little while longer with Reds boss Brendan Rodgers confirming that talks are ongoing.

Just one step ahead?

The transfer window isn’t even close to being open yet, but the rumour mill has been humming along nicely with PSV Eindhoven sporting director Marcel Brands unable to shut-up about the future of their highly coveted youngster Memphis Depay.

While Liverpool will certainly face some challenges trying to attract top level talent this summer with the likelihood of securing Champions League football low, but Reds boss Brendan Rodgers has confirmed that they’ll be looking to make a splash when the window opens on July 1st. If marquee players is what the Northern Irishman wants, he’d do much worse than to take a punt on Depay who has said on more than one occasion that a big money move away from the Eredivisie champions is exactly what he’s looking for.

Looking like a team very much lacking in both commitment and ideas, Liverpool have been stumbling along since their 13-match unbeaten streak was unceremoniously ended by bitter rivals Manchester United at the end of March. One only needs to look to our last two outings — a boring draw with West Bromwich Albion and an embarrassing loss to Hull City — to prove that point. Although Champions League football is now more or less out of the question and even qualification for the Europa League looks like it could be in jeopardy, Reds boss Brendan Rodgers has stressed that his team is going to keep playing until the final whistle is blown.
