Transfer day deadline, Deja Vu

Borussia Mönchengladbach match report, daily mirror,, liverpool european cup

Well here we go again, two days left of the transfer window where prices start to go through the roof because managers aren’t willing to sell their best players, yet those who actually want to strengthen their squads, like us, have left it way too late. Its not rocket science to see where we are lacking, we create chances but have no one to finish them. We paid an inflated price for Andy Carroll and to be fair to him we haven’t supplied the crosses he needs to make an impact, we just don’t play that way.

We have been linked with strikers from around the world from Lukas Podolski, Klaas Jan Huntelaar, Jackson Martinez, Luc Castaignos amongst many others, throw in the loan deals for Jermain Defoe, Darren Bent etc and its not hard to see every agent on the planet knows the same and are pushing their players.

Lukas Pololski, one of the many players linked to Liverpool.

In my opinion: I could understand us not buying anyone if we had been putting the likes of Suso, Raheem Sterling or Conor Coady on the bench and trying to blood them in and see what they have to offer. We now have seven subs on the bench and I have always believed that we should be putting one of those players on the bench and bring them on with 5/10 mins to go, especially when games are won, or at home when we are trying to turn one of our many draws into a win.

Who would have thought with all the draws at home, forth place would still be an option? But it is and with the boost that a cup final has now given the club and beating the Mancs to move into the fifth round of the FA Cup, it’s now that we need to bring in that much needed striker and maybe a winger.

It will keep everyone on their toes and like a long distance runner who has that extra kick at the 200 metre mark, take them past the rest of the field and give us that extra kick as we battle for that forth place.

What price would you give for two cups and forth place? It’s there for us, because teams like Chelsea and Arsenal haven’t gone out and got the players they need so are we going to do the same? Hopefully not, Tuesday at midnight we will find out.

The forgotten Semi Final


It’s 34 years since Liverpool beat Borussia Mönchengladbach to reach their second successive European Cup final – but who’s ever seen the second-leg goals since? By The Liverpolitan I can remember it as if it were yesterday. Rainer Bonhof, stood hands-on-hips at the intersection of halfway line and touchline, preparing to take a free-kick.

The glare of the Anfield floodlights refracted through a big bulb of snot about to fall from his nose like the drip of a faulty tap. And my owlfella suddenly leaping up from the front row of the Kemlyn Road Stand, brandishing a bar of chocolate and shouting, “Ere are Bonhof lad – wanna piece of me Mars Bar?” To this day I have no idea why my late father did this, but at the time it felt so right. read more

The Hillsborough Tapestry


Hillsborough remained in the headlines throughout 2011, not least because of the online petition that triggered calls for the full release of documents for debate, and lately more lame remarks by insufferable former tabloid editors. Meanwhile another hugely successful Don’t Buy The Sun concert was largely ignored by the mainstream media, surprise surprise, as the Justice Campaign and Hillsborough Family Support Group continue to maintain powerful presences in the city and elsewhere. read more

New Stadium debate


It seems Fenway Sports Group (FSG) have made a decision on the proposed new stadium. They have decided to go ahead with the pre Hicks and Gillett stadium plans once they have secured the finance to start construction. This all means there will be no need to submit a new planning application, which according to reports would have been required by the Hicks and Gillett design. FSG have been working with Manchester-based architects AFL, the firm which submitted the original design when Liverpool announced their intention to move to Stanley Park back in 2000. read more
