Why Man City's Loss Against Liverpool Can Be Good For Them

Why Man City's Loss Against Liverpool Can Be Good For Them

How can a loss be any good for a team that has well..lost? Let alone the fact that this is title-favorites Manchester City who are quite ominous when it comes to playing at home. On Saturday, Manuel Pellegrini resigned to his chair watching his side get torn apart by a new look, revived, scarily intense Liverpool, a result and more so the performance, arguably the most surprising element of the weekend. To start with, Manchester City did have a few …
In Defence of Roberto Firmino

In Defence of Roberto Firmino

Transfers in sports carry with them so much hype and hullabaloo. Where else do we root for and jeer against someone's new job? Twelve game into the season, it's not surprising to see the best and worst signings being rated on various media platforms. I saw Roberto Firmino being listed as one of the five worst signings of the summer over here, and whilst I respect the writer's opinions, I would like to argue why he absolutely doesn't deserve to be part of this list.

Liverpool vs Norwich Preview | Team News, Key Men and Stats

On the back of two successive defeats in the Premier League, Brendan Rodgers faces a must win game when Norwich visit Anfield on Sunday. His future at the club is what will dominate headlines regardless of the result, and following a decent draw with a second string side against Bordeaux in midweek, Liverpool need the three points to keep up pace with United, who beat them last week, and Arsenal with both teams still only 3 points ahead of them. Norwich …
Roberto Firmino to Liverpool: Another South American Superstar

Roberto Firmino to Liverpool: Another South American Superstar

So, Roberto Firmino is actually a Liverpool player, subject to a medical. I think it’s fair to say that no Liverpool fan saw this coming with the club in dire straits just weeks ago. Harsh questions have been asked about the manager’s position, the transfer committee and whether Liverpool could attract star talent without their talismanic captain and other leading players to play with week in, week out.   Alas, apparently the Reds can do this despite the manager still …
Roberto Firmino to Manchester United - Necessity or Luxury?

Roberto Firmino to Manchester United - Necessity or Luxury?

If twitter reports are anything to be trusted, then Manchester United have already wrapped up their second signing of the summer - Hoffeinheim's attacking midfielder Roberto Firmino for circa 18m€ (some sources quote €30 million). Although there has been no noise in particular from the British Press on what has been going on behind the curtains at Old Trafford, it looks like the deal could be on and the player could have actually undergone his medical already whilst on international duty, …
