Liverpool: All the latest Liverpool flavoured news, views, rumours and other assorted bits and bobs

Liverpool must be buzzing today. They’ve just beaten Barcelona! The European champions for crying out loud! Well, whilst the players smile away, any neutral who watched the game must be wondering why they bothered. With most of the press being, shall we say, kind to Rafa & Co, the same can’t be said for the […]

"The danger for Liverpool is if they think they have already done the hard work by winning in Spain… We are the defending European champions and we will not relinquish the trophy without a fight." Ronaldinho As much as I dislike some of Barca’s stars, I would never write off a team containing Ronaldinho, Eto’o […]

The wags at T-shirts365 don’t miss a trick. In this case, the trick is producing a t-shirt called ‘The Craig Bellamy School of Golf’, just days after Bellamy showed the world his swing. Ouch, it’s zeitgeisty! Available in green, red or white, for the princely sum of £14.99. BUY IT

News reaches us that Premiership chairmen are going to be forced into cutting ‘obscene’ ticket prices because fans have just about had enough of being the victims of daylight robbery every weekend, and as a result, football has reached a tipping point. Two top-flight chairmen have expressed the same view, both of whom predict price […]

Q: Who put the ‘ouch’ in Crouch? A: Blades striker Rob Hulse, whose stray boot connected with the blonde giraffe’s face during Liverpool’s 4-0 defeat of Sheffield United on Staurday. There goes Peter’s catwalk career… The injury to Crouch was the only downer of the game for Liverpool, although I’ve read several reports claiming that […]

As I said to my flatmate last night, I love Barca as a club –€“ great fans, great history, the fact they refused to sully their shirt with a sponsor for so long etc. – but they have the most annoying players in the world: Ronaldinho raises his chubby arms – is it me or […]

Benitez fines squad

February 20th, 2007

With some people saying "It’s all lies. I’d be more ashamed to believe it than anything. If you could conjure up an eyewitness report or a police record, that’d be great" about the Craig Bellamy story on these very pages, it’s worth pointing out that today, Rafa Benitez is set to hand out the punishment […]

Riise and Bellamy kiss & make up

February 19th, 2007

This recent photo, courtesy of Liverpool’s official website, proves, beyond any doubt, that the alleged Riise/Bellamy karaoke incident is a drizzle in a teacup. Look how happy they are!

Is Craig Bellamy the dimmest man on the face of the earth? His move to Liverpool was a slightly risky one on Rafa’s part, but we can all presume that he thought Bellamy may pull his finger out and keep his head down as his stint at Liverpool would probably be his last chance to […]

Liverpool fans one year ago

February 7th, 2007

I know it’s a cheap gag, but I couldn’t resist. Surely the Liverpool fans must be a little embarrassed by all this takeover business?

Hopefully, a bright and red future ahead of us. I shall reserve my comment to later and not jump to conclusion. But it is exciting times indeed. [The Red Cauldron] Liverpool, with a proposed new stadium and increased transfer funds, will be looking to firmly place themselves in between Chelsea and Manchester United – and […]

Rafa Benitez referred to Everton as a small club at the weekend and it ruffled some feathers.  The Spaniard said after Saturday’s 0-0 Merseyside derby: "When you play against the smaller teams at Anfield you know the game will be narrow." Everton chief executive Keith Wyness responded on the club website and said: "Benitez is […]

One of Pies‘ all-time favourite moments! A worse for wear Peter Crouch sings along to Ini Kamoze’s Here Comes The Hotstepper before posing for a photo (seemingly unaware that he was being filmed all the while!). [Rob Parker]

The Liverpool manager shows why most footballers favour footwear with studs as he takes a tumble in last night’s 1-2 victory over West Ham! [Rob Parker]

Yesterday, as a treat for their suffering fans, West Ham put some half time entertainment on for their game against Liverpool. Bonnie Tyler belted through a rendition of Total Eclipse of the Heart in an attempt to stir the home fans into action. Hilariously, this backfired massively when Liverpool emerged enthused by the power of […]

Lucas Neill has decided on the latter. Despite interest from Barcelona after his impressive World Cup and a contract on the table from Liverpool, Neill has made the distinctly sideways move from Blackburn Rovers to West Ham. The reason? If we are to believe the rumours the Hammers will be paying the Australian international £60,000 […]

Free travel to football matches

January 22nd, 2007

Fans who have experienced the thrill of an away match will know how addictive it is. The trip down, the pre-match pints in a strange pub, being in a strange ground. It’s like a holiday with a football match stuck in the middle of it! However, loads give it a wide berth because they can’t […]

With the news that Djimi Traore has joined Portsmouth from Charlton for £1m, let’s look at the great man in action. Slightly unfair to compare him to Zizou… but funny all the same. [Mof Gimmers]

I don’t think we’ve featured this classic footballing moment before, but Bruce Grobbelaar and his wobbly legs is always worth seeing again. You surely need balls of steel to do something like this in a European Cup final… still, it paid off for Grobs as Liverpool beat Roma to lift the trophy.

Rafael Benitez has issued an apology to Liverpool fans following their 6-3 trouncing by Arsenal at Anfield last night: "It is a bad night for us all and all we can say is sorry to the supporters." He avoided blaming Jerzy Dudek for his first-half blunders, saying: "Now is not the time to point the […]

One to watch: Jamie McCarthy

January 9th, 2007

A host of English and Scottish clubs are currently battling it out to capture 16-year-old Hamilton Academical wonderkid Jamie McCarthy. The midfielder/Neil Lennon Mini-Me scored his first senior goal against Livingston at the weekend.

When I heard that Graham Souness was to take control of Wolves, I naturally thought it would be something like a fight to the death with an entire pack. Well, it isn’t. Old pig heart, Graeme Souness, has claimed that he’s made a £20m bid to take control of Wolves, despite the club denying the […]

Wembley heartbreak

January 8th, 2007

For the first time in years, fans could once again sing "Wemb-er-ley… Wemb-er-ley" as, with any luck, this season will see the FA Cup final go back to its spiritual home. Of course, Wembley doesn’t just hold great memories, but some heartbreaking ones too… that’s what the national stadium is all about.

http://newsimg.bbc.co.uk/media/images/41757000/jpg/_41757802_robocrouch_getty270.jpg With Liverpool being decidedly average so far this season, January sees Rafa Benitez given the opportunity to flex his Spanish muscle in the transfer market… and with his sights set on David Villa from Valencia, someone will have to make way. It appears that Peter Crouch is all set to be shipped out for a reported £12million… but who is daft enough to pay an inflated price like that?
