The stats that prove Liverpool DON’T NEED Gerrard anymore?

Posted on

first_img Steven Gerrard applauds the fans 1 There can be little arguing that Steven Gerrard is one of Liverpool’s greatest ever players, but after 17 seasons playing at the very top, the time seems to be right for the Kop hero to leave the club.When Gerrard announced that he was calling time on his Anfield career, sections of supporters pointed the finger at Brendan Rodgers for allowing it to happen, but as they enjoy their best spell of the season, the future looks bright for the Redmen.It surely cannot be coincidence that Liverpool’s best run of form has come at a time when their most celebrated, yet ageing star has been largely absent from the team.Owing to injury, Gerrard has been in and out of the first-team for the past six weeks, during which time Liverpool have won FIVE from FIVE when he hasn’t been in the squad.Indeed a closer look across the whole season and this statistic increases.In the Premier League alone, Liverpool have WON ALL SIX matches where Gerrard hasn’t featured, conceding just TWO GOALS and scoring a pretty impressive 14.But it is not just limited to the Premier League where Liverpool have arguably been better off.In ALL COMPETITIONS, the Redmen have played 12 WITHOUT GERRARD, WINNING TEN, drawing one and losing JUST ONCE – the agonising Europa League exit at the hands of Besiktas.Many will dismiss these figures as nothing more than speculative and coincidence, but in truth they are massively encouraging.It will be a sad day when Gerrard finally waves goodbye to the Kop, but fear not Liverpool fans, the future looks promising.Liverpool fans, do you need Steven Gerrard anymore?

Newcastle United manager John Carver hits back at Phil Neville criticism

Posted on

first_img John Carver Newcastle United head coach John Carver has hit back at comments made by Phil Neville suggesting his players were performing like the season had finished already.The 50-year-old watched his side fall to a 3-0 defeat to Everton on Sunday which stretched their recent record to one win in six and prompted the Toon manager to issue a relegation warning.Carver was publicly damning of his side’s display but was left fuming after the Match of the Day pundit stated that some members of the Magpies’ camp ‘had their flip-flips on.’“I was pretty angry when I heard it because he couldn’t be any further from the truth,” said Carver.“I think it’s insulting and I think it’s wrong, especially from ex-players. I’m sure if they were playing now, they wouldn’t like the comments, as I didn’t.”Carver, an internal replacement for Alan Pardew earlier this season, hoped the comments would galvanise his players into proving the likes of Neville wrong, beginning against Arsenal on Saturday.“What I did do was to inform the players about what these people had been saying. I thought it was important that they knew,” said Carver.“Now it’s down to ourselves to show those people out there that we’ve not got our flip-flops on.”Newcastle’s on-field struggles have been compounded by injuries and suspensions, leaving Carver with a severely depleted squad as the Premier League reaches the final stretch.Captain Fabricio Coloccini will miss the next three games through suspension to add to Newcastle’s long list of sidelined players, but Carver remained in high spirits in that regard.Carver said: “The good news is that I’ve not got a selection problem tomorrow because I’ve only got 13 fit senior players, plus two keepers, so that won’t be too difficult.“There’s no sign of anyone coming back in the near future other than Mehdi Abeid, who is a week or so away. We’re working on Rolando Aarons, but everyone else is more or less long-term.” 1last_img read more

‘Liverpool will lose 4-0 to Arsenal if this man plays in defence!’ – Exaggeration?

Posted on

first_img1 Martin Skrtel has been charged by the FA for appearing to stamp on Man United goalkeeper David De Gea in Liverpool’s recent 2-1 loss.He faces a potential three-game ban, which would mean watching the Arsenal, Newcastle and Blackburn games from the stands. It also means Kolo Toure or the often criticised Dejan Lovren replacing him in the Reds’ defence, which has raised a few concerns from supporters.However, given Lovren has suffered lately with an abdominal strain and has withdrawn from the Croatia squad he may not even be fit for the Emirates clash.Here are a few reactions from some worried fans following the decision to charge Skrtel.

MAN’S ATTEMPT TO LURE WOMAN TO ISLAND LIFE LEFT ALL AT SEA

Posted on

first_imgA man’s search for a female companion to join him for a year on an isolated island off the Donegal coast has failed.John McManus, 36, advertised for a “wife/companion” who would accompany him to the island of Inishfree in January.McManus, from Leitrim, wanted the woman to spend the next 12 months with him while he lived off the land and wrote a book about his time. McManus was inspired by Gerald Kingsland, whose island adventures with a partner found via an ad were chronicled in the 1980s book and film ‘Castaway.’It was later reported that McManus had been involved in a scheme in which he offered to impregnate women for their husbands.The unemployed hotel worker offered his services in hotel sex sessions and had once advertised himself as a faith healer and as a “wizard seeking witches to join my coven.”McManus’s ad attracted thousands of queries from curious parties. But just before Christmas, he admitted defeat in his search for an island companion, saying he could not find anyone suitable who could commit for a full year and that he wasn’t planning to go alone.  MAN’S ATTEMPT TO LURE WOMAN TO ISLAND LIFE LEFT ALL AT SEA was last modified: January 1st, 2014 by StephenShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:companiondonegalInishfreeJohn McManuslast_img read more
