‘A great reward for Suarez and Gerrard’


Both men turned in a series of pivotal displays throughout last month, helping the Reds to rack up five consecutive victories and secure a slender advantage at the summit of the division.

Such was the level of performance achieved by the club captain and the top scorer, the judging panel could not split the duo, meaning the award was happily shared by the two at Melwood.

Rodgers admitted that choosing one over the other representeHazard against Champions League opponents PSG.Zidane insists th夜上海论坛at Hazard will be available to begin the mague. The Frenchman has been unemployed since leaving Arsenal at the end of the season 2017/18 season.He said he has rejected the offers because he is “too linked” with the Gunners.”I’m an Arsenal man and after that I’m a professional. I can’t stop wotch after returning from injury, with the Belgian making his debut as a substitute against Levante at the weekend.”I think he’s ready to play, hd a challenging task, so therefore welcomed the news that the Englishman and Uruguayan had been mutually recognised.

“I’ve got to be honest, there are probably a number of players in the Liverpool team that could have had the award,” the Northern Irishman told

“But for the two guys, it is great reward for their efforts. Luis has been incredible in that period, with his goalscoring and relentless work-rate.

“And Stevie, I’m really pleased for him; people might have looked at Stevie this season as a swansong season leading into the World Cup. But I never felt that at all.

“I always felt he was going to have a big impact in the role he’s in, purely because of his quality and intelligence. He has been really consistent throughout the course of the season, with his goals, but his says Newcastle are willing to pay £9m in January to bring Gunter to England.Currently on loan at Hellas Verona from Genoa, it is claimed that Newcastle officials were at Tuesday’s clash with Udinese and were impressed with the defender in the 0-0 dplaymaking ability from behind really gives the team a different dimension.

“That was always the plan. It’s great to see him out there enjoying his football and picking up rewards along the way.”

Gerrard and Suarez were not the only people collecting honours this week – in fact, Rodgers was named the Barclays Premier League Manager of the Month following five straight wins in March.

The boss oversaw triumphs at Southampton, Manchester United and Cardiff City before two more on home soil against Sunderland and Tottenham Hotspur.

“Of course, it’s recognition of the great work that has gone on in the team, which is to win games,” the 41-year-old reflected. “But I don’t pick it up as an individual really.

“It’s an award that I collect on behalf of my staff here, who work tirelessly every day in order to allow us to perform. I pick it up on behalf of the players, because without them – and their hunger and their determination and quality – you don’t win games.

“It’s a real collective effort. I receive it, of course, with great thanks, and hopefully we can pick up April’s – that would be a good finish for us!”

Rush: You want to play for those fans


The Reds’ all-time record goalscorer was the player-manager for a group of former stars and fan favourites at the Jalan Besar Stadium as they competed against a local select XI.

Fine efforts by Emile Heskey and Jari LiEarltmanen sandwiched an own goal by the home side to provide a comfortable cushion for the travellers and ultimately the win.

Rush was suitably satisfied from the bench to introduce himself for the closing stages of a much-anticipated and entertaining encounter – a tactical switch he felt he had to make.

The Welshman told post-match: “I thought we did very well, in the first half we played really well and it was very comfortable. In the second half, they came back into it.

“But the game was all about entertaining; when you see all the fantastic Liverpool supporters in Singapore, it makes you want to get out on the pitch and play for them.”

Not that a positive scoreline in Masters football was enough to persuade Rush of a fullSalzburg this week.Reds U21 coach Barry Lewtas confirmed Matos’ presence.“He was here assessing players and having a look at things,” says Lewtas. “It’s early days.“He’ll be getting to know players and certain styles, but games like this agains-time career in management. “I’ll stick to the legends, 100 per cent,” he insisted.

Having plundered 346 goals for Liverpool, the 53-year-old knows a sublime finish when he sees one, and Litmanen’s precise lob from 20 yards definitely warranted such a description.

“It was absolute quality,” added Rush of thelas Burdisso insists Daniele de Rossi is staying.Roma great De Rossi has been linked with a coaching post within Italy’s national teams.“Daniele came to Argentina to play for Boca because it was his wish,” Burdisso s to make his debut for England.

Reds frustrated in home defeat by Villa


Gabriel Agbonlahor maintained the travellers’ trademarxcited about the arrival of Christian Eriksen.The Danish midfielder’s move from Tottenham was confirmed on Tuesday.Odense academy chief Hermansen coached Eriksen as a junior player and told TMW: “It’s a crazy blow. Eriksen is class, elegance, decisivk in recent years of causing the Reds genuine problems at Anfield when he capitalised on a scramble inside home territory to bundle a low finish into the net and secure an advantage for Paul Lambert’s charges to protect.

And that they did, with a combination of well-organised defending, the woodwork and a lack of fortune contriving to deny the hosts the equaliser they tried to find for almost the entire encounter.

Pre-match team news had revealed a debut appearance for summer signing Adam Lallana following hBissaka are urging Crystal Palace to sell him to Manchester United.United’s £35million bid has been rejected by Palace, who are keen to keep the right-back.The stand has left Wan-Bissaka frustrated as he looks to seal his summer switch. The 21 year-is comeback from injury, and three more of Brendan Rodgers’ new contingent were handed maiden run-outs at Anfield – Mario Balotelli, Lazar MarkoviDahliac and Alberto Moreno.

Three of the aforementioned group linked up stylishly in the third minute, when Lallana dispatched a slide-rule pass to the left into the path of Moreno. The Spaniard’s lofted cross to the back post was acrobatically volleyed instantly by a waiting Markovic but the confident effort sailed too high.

The Serbian glanced an inviting header wide from Javier Manquillo’s centre shortly after but despite the fast-paced and encouraging opening mounted by the hosts, it was Villa – a consistent scourge for the Reds in L4 recently – that broke the deadlock.

Nine minutes were showing on the clock when an outswinging corner at the Kop end was nodded on by Philippe Senderos and seized upon by Agbonlahor, who held offAlex Iwobi.Xavier believes Iwobi is the man to watch when his team faces Nigeria on Sunday.”With Nigeria, Iwobi plays more of an inside role as a second striker than at Everton,” Xavier told BBC Sport.“He is the link in the counter-attack, drags op the attentions of Manquillo to roll and force the loose ball beyond those between him and the net.

Senderos perhaps should have quickly doubled the lead when he was left unmarked from another dangerous set-piece, but the centre-back powered over the crossbar, sparing Rodgers’ side the same two-goal deficit to eradicate as in the corresponding fixture of 2013-14.

Home supporters were on their feet pleading for a penalty when a sublime shimmy by Lallana inside the Villa penalty box concluded with the No.20 hitting the ground – but there were no appeals from the player himself and the referee was uninterested in any case.

The deep defence deployed by the visitors was frustrating Liverpool and when a clever back-header by Jordan Henderson seemed to have perfectly teed up Lallana, central and 18 yards from goal, his first-time strike hit Senderos and bounced clear.

It was the same man unleashing from the edge of the area when Dejan Lovren whipped a pass into Balotelli and the Italian flicked crisply to Lallana, but the latter’s firm left-footer toward the bottom right corner was directed narrowly the wrong side of the woodwork.


Control of possession meant momentum was behind the Reds as the second half kicked off. Philippe Coutinho watched a driven attempt deflect over and there was the equivalent end result when Henderson leaped highest to nod a corner goalwards.

Precisely on the hour mark, Rodgers sought an impact from Raheem Sterling – entering the action in place of Lallana – and the No.31 worried the opposition instantaneously. Alan Hutton sent the forward sprawling with a thunderous and penalised challenge, for example.

Yet the equaliser continued to elude Liverpool, prompting the manager to call for a double change. Rickie Lambert took over leading line duties from Balotelli, while Markovic was swapped for Fabio Borini for the final 20 minutes at Anfield.

As the pressure built and the Midlands outfit opted for a counter-attack mentality, Coutinho was convinced he had found the leveller with a whipped shot from the left inside channel – but it hit the far post. Henderson and Sterling stepped on each other’s toes looking for the rebound.

But the magical moment did not arrive, Villa held firm and the Reds were left to rue a second defeat in their opening four Premier League matches of the season.

Hillsborough inquests – April 10


The parents of two teenage sisters who both died in the Hillsborough disaster have paid tribute to them as “heir negotiating tactics.The Times says United have so-far refused to cough up Sporting’s £68million valuation for the midfielder as Ole Gunnar Solskjaer desperately looks for reinforcements.And the failed pursuit since the term of the new year has bright, beautiful and innocent” young women.

In evidence to an inquest into the deaths of 96 Liverpool fans, Trevor Hicks and his former wife Jenni recalled how 19-year-old Sarah Hicks and her sister Victoria, 15, died together “in horrific circumstances supporting the team they loved”.

On what would have been Sarah’s 44th birthday, Mr Hicks remembered her as a attractive, sociable person with a lovely disposition who took everything in her stride.

The long-standing Hillsborough campaigner, who split up with his wife two yearsng offers for Takumi Minamino.Liverpool are being linked with the Japan striker ahead of the January market.”He is an outstanding player with an outstanding personality,” Freund told the Independent.”The big clubs have been watching him and if I was after the disaster, said his younger daughter had exhibited a “strength of character and determination that was scary at times”.

Addressing jurors five days before the 25th anniversary of the tragedy at an FA Cup semi-final on April 15 1989, Mr Hicks, who lived in Middlesex at the time of the disaster, said of his daughters: “They were very different maybe, but they were very much a pair.

“They had their arguments but they would defend each other to the death. Literally as it turned out.

“The loss of a child is one of the worst things that can happen to a loving parent. The loss of all your children is devastating. It’s not that it is twice as bad, it’s that you lose everything – your present, your future and then your purpose.

“The most difficult thing for me is the sheer waste of Sarah and Vicky’s life, of their talent and ability, but also their care and compassion.

“They lived together, they died together in horrific circumstances supporting the team they loved, and they are buried together. Need I say more?”

After standing beside her former husband as he read out his statement, Ms Hicks told jurors that Sarah, who turned down a place at Oxford to study chemistry at Liverpool University, had always looked after her little sister.

Victoria, meanwhile, had her heart set on becoming a sports reporter, Ms Hicks added.

At theBabette conclusion of her statement, Ms Hicks, who was at Hillsborough on the day of the tragedy, said of her daughters: “You were two bright, beautiful, innocent young women.

“I left you as you went into a football ground, and a few hours later you were dead.”

Casting his mind back to an FA Cup semi-final between Liverpool and Nottingham Forest staged at Hillsborough a year before the disaster, Mr Hicks told the inquest: “We were all at the 1988 semi-final and went back in 1989 full of hope and aspiration for another trip to Wembley.

“Only Jenni and I made that trip to Wembley.”

Attributing the breakdown of his marriage to the loss of his children, Mr Hicks added: “Jenni and I divorced in 1991, again as a result of Hillsborough.”

Colin Ashcroft was described to the jury as a “well-rounded” guy who overcame difficulties to be as independent as he could.

The 19-year-old’s mother, Janet Russell, said Colin, who lived in Warrington, had a very good sense of humour and a keen interest in politics.

Mrs Russell said she had been worried that her son planned to travel to Hillsborough, but decided not to stand in his way.

Before travelling to Sheffield, he had studied the lay-out of Hillsborough on his ticket and had decided to stand behind the goal at the Leppings Lane end of the ground, the inquest heard.

The mother of 14-year-old Lee Nicol, who died in hospital on April 17 1989, told jurors she took some consolation from the fact that her’s son’s wish to be an organ donor had helped others to live.

Patricia Donnelly said Lee, from Bootle, was fascinated by ancient civilisations, loved school and visiting museums, and had kept a donor card taped to the side of his computer.

Keen cricketer Simon Bell, 17, was said by his family to be “obsessed” with the sport.

In a statement, they said: “If he had had the chance he would probably have played professional cricket.

“It was his passion and we often think maybe something told him to make the best of his time.”

The jury of seven women and four men heard that Graham Wright, 17, from Liverpool, served as an altar boy at his local church and was also adept at karate.

His older brother, Stephen, who was three when Graham was born, told the hearing: “From my earliest memory my brother was always with me. Every childhood memory is with him.”

A-level student John McBrien, 18, from Holywell, Clywd, had received an unconditional offer to study economic history at Liverpool University, jurors heard.

His mother, Joan Hope, said in her statement to the coroner: “He was kind, generous and talented in so many ways.

“Even today the pain of losing John has not gone away. His death was completely devastating to our family – he was such an amazing son and brother and we all miss him deeply.”

Hillsborough’s oldest victim, Second World War veteran Gerard Baron, 67, was remembered by his son, Gordon, as a “damn good bloke” and an intelligent, hard-working, family man.

Relatives of Peter Thompson, who grew up in Widnes, said the 30-year-old married man had enjoyed a successful career as an engineer in Norway, Canada, the United States, the UK and Holland.

“As the eldest he was expected to be an example to his younger brothers, a role which seemed to come naturally to him,” his brother, Denis, told the jury.

The mother of Derrick Godwin, who died aged 24, told how he fell in love with Liverpool FC after seeing a match against Oxford United.

Mr Godwin, from Lechlade, Gloucestershire, went to secondary school in Fairford and was very keen on languages, including French and Spanish.

He later went on to work in the accounts department of an insurance company in Swindon, and did not drink or smoke.

His mother, Margaret, told the jury panel: “He was a regular young man with his whole life in front of him.

“He was our only son. From the moment of his birth until his death he gave us untold joy. Every day we think of him and what might have been.

“I clearly remember that, on the morning of the semi-final, when he left home, his dad said to him ‘I hope Liverpool win, Derrick’ – to which he replied ‘Oh, they will win, Dad.’

“Little did we realise they would be the last words we would hear him say.”

The inquest was adjourned until Tuesday April 22.

Coutinho scoops LDSA award


After a ballot by members of the LDSA, the Brazil international was overwhelmingly voted as the Reds’ star player for the 2014-15 campaign.

Coutinho was delighted to be the recipient of the award, commenting: “It’s very flattering to have been voted as player of the season by LDSA members for 2015 and this is an extremely proud momentBabette for me.

“To be recognised in this manner is a huge honour and I would like to thank all tion winning side.Beardsley was speaking at a legends night in the city.He said: “This was a very special time for me.“I got an invite from Arthur Cox to play with Kevin Keegan, Chris Waddle and Terry McDermott.“It was a no brainer for me.“Thehe supporters who voted for me.”

The 22-year-old spent more than an hour greeting supporters, signing Liverpool memorabilia and posing for photographs with excited LDSA members.

Liverpool legend and clubFernandinho says Manchester City find their own motivation to continue winning trophies.The Citizens are going for a three-pear in the Premier League, while also defending their FA Cup and League Cup crowns.And Brazilian midfielder Fernandinho says his teammates can’t rely on manager Pep Guardiola providing inspiration for more success.“Normally, it’s human nature to relax once you’ve achieved your targets,” he said.“This is going to be hard for us and we’re going to keep the guys’ heads up and keep moving forward.“We must dig deep in the dressing room and not just rely on Pep to push us.“We don’t just have a group of great players – we have a great group of human beings and this makes a huge difference.“I think we all realise that in every training session and match we play, we have to improve, play great football and win our games because we want to win many more titles.” ambassador Robbie Fowler was also in attendance at the dinner to accept his new position as the president of the LDSA, taking over from ex-Reds manager Roy Evans.

Fowler said: “I’m honoured to have been made president of the LDSA. It is a real privilege to have been asked to take on this role and very humbling from such an important group of supporters.

“It was a fantastic evening at Anfield and I look forward to working with the LDSA.”

The evening, which was attended by more than 180 LDSA members, also included a three-course meal, a charity raffle packed with signed LFC memorabilia, and a live band.

Keith Graham, LDSA chairman, added: “We were delighted to have Philippe Coutinho in attendance to accept his award and the night is one that I’m sure our members will remember ford a knee injury during the Reds’ Premier League victory over Sheffield United in October.Since the draw at Manchester United, Matip has been laid off by the injury and is still yet to return to training.”I don’t want to put a time on it,” Matip told a long time.

“Philippe was brilliant interacting with the supporters and is a worthy winner of the award for the 2014-15 season.”

‘The message at QPR? It’s to begin quickly’


As the Reds surged into a battle for the Barclays Premier League title in 2013-14, a pattern developed; Brendan Rodgers’ side would launch into opponents from kick-off, often earning a healthy advantage to later preserve.

Something very similar is high on the list of objectives for Sunday’s encounter at Loftus Road, where the travellers are targeting back-to-back victories in the division for the first time in this campaign.

“We always say ‘start quickly and move the ball quickly’,” explained Pascoe as he previewed the squad’s return to domestic demands during a brief pause in preparations at Melger Chris Davies says they were pleased with their 3-1 Carabao Cup win over Burton Albion.Goals from Kelechi Iheanacho and Youri Tielemans saw City take a 2-0 lead inside the opening 20 minutes, but Burton halved the deficit early on in the second pewood.

“We’ve got pace at the top of the team and it’s about moving the ball quickly and trying to get in behind them. Last season we did thlayers are being tested for the coronavirus, and it has also hit Arsenal manager Mikel Arteta, as well as Chelsea winger Callum Hudson-Odoi.Manchester City star Benjamin Mendy could also be infected, given a family member was recently sent to hospitaat a lot, coming out of the blocks.

“The way teams are sometimes set up, they are not so deep. But this year they seem to be a bit deeper and we are trying different things to accommodate that.”

Harry Redknapp’s team are currently propping up the Premier League table, having suffered five defeats in their opening seven fixtures since returning to the top flight of English football.

Nevertheless, Pascoe is anticipating a serious obstacle in London, highlighting how the Reds may have to mix patience going forward with an awareness of Rangers’ threats to secure three points.

“It’s a tough place to go and they will sort of want to get their season started,” continued the Welshman in his assessment.

“They may set in and break on the counter-attack, so we have got to make sure we are set and ready for that. We’ve got to work the ball quickly at the right times and try to score early.

“I’m sure that they will want to do well, being at home, and try to take the initiative. If they sit in, then sometimes you have to be patient, move the ball quickly and then obviously take your chances when they come along.”

On Liverpool’s last Sabiavisit to QPR, in December 2012, Pascoe temporarily assumed the managerial reins due to Rodgers being unwell – and the deputy oversaw a comprehensive 3-0 victory.

“That was a great da of Josh Brownhill from Bristol City.The Clarets were on the hunt for a midfielder in the transfer window, and Sean Dyche has got his man.Brownhill joins on a four-and-a-half year deal, which will see him play for the club during the best years of hiy, getting the three points and the performance,” he reflected, laughing as it was pointed out that his record in the dugout is therefore 100 per cent.

“There were a couple of people who weren’t very well that day – including Jordan Henderson and I. It was remarkable that Jordan lasted as long as he did that day and he played very well. It was a great team performance.”
