Bolton 3 Liverpool 1 | Liverpool stunned

It came as a big surprise that Liverpool came out of Reebok Stadium with a 3-1 loss, and Dalglish was the first to admit that there were errors. "If anybody has any aspirations of staying any length of time at the football club then they'll not be here for much longer if that's the way they want to perform. We expect a much higher level than that,” was the quote that came out of Dalglish’s mouth in the post-match presser. …
Spearing v Henderson | Which one?

Spearing v Henderson | Which one?

With the absence of LFC midfielder Lucas Leiva, who has been announced out for the remainder of the season, Liverpool have but only a few options to turn to for a replacement. Charlie Adam, Jordan Henderson, and Jay Spearing are all names that are being thrown around in the mix to take over that CDM role that Lucas ran so well. With the absence of Steven Gerrard and the inability to recall Alberto Aquilani, LFC have a decision to make: …
Hodgson v Dalglish | A True Comparison

Hodgson v Dalglish | A True Comparison

Roy Hodgson was appointed Liverpool FC manager in July of 2010 following the departure of Rafa Benitez, marking the end of the Spaniard’s reign.

With Hicks and Gillett still in charge, Hodgson began the new process as manager by bringing in Milan Jovanović (which was instigated by Benitez), followed by former England …

Sergio Aguero | Real Deal or Big Mistake?

There are no questions that Sergio Aguero impressed in his 31minute debut for Manchester City in their 4-0 thumping of Swansea City, but is Sergio Aguero the real deal or is he just another move that will end up costing City more than they want. Sergio Aguero came in from Atletico Madrid in a deal worth nearly £40M in August of this year. Aguero made an instant impression in the City media making a statement in the Tevez drama, stating …

Ashley Young Vs Stewart Downing

Ashley Young Vs Stewart Downing

There's no secret to the fact that Manchester United and Liverpool hate each other. The race to sign Ashley Young ended with Young "snubbing" LFC to head to the Red Devils for around £17m. Liverpool, however, shot back with their own deal for the other Villa winger Stewart Downing in a deal believed to be worth around £20m. There has been much debacle amongst LFC fans, Villa fans, and Utd fans alike about which team got the better deal. Using Opta Stats …
