Liverpool legend helps promote Safer Internet Day

LiverpoolFC.TV - Mon, 20/02/2017 - 18:15

Gary McAllister joined 350 local school children at Anfield to help promote internet safety.

The Liverpool FC Foundation, the club’s official charity, hosted a series of events for Safer Internet Day (SID) 2017. 

The Foundation, working alongside SID tutors, held an education event at Anfield with 25 local schools. Tutors delivered a series of activities to the youngsters to highlight the various dangers online and how to avoid them, as well as the positive use of technology and how to use the internet safely and responsibly.  

The club’s mascot Mighty Red joined Liverpool ambassador McAllister to encourage the students in their tasks and celebrate their hard work. 

SID representatives also delivered sessions to participants of the LFC Foundation’s Premier League Works employability programme at Anfield and youngsters attending the LFC Foundation’s Premier League Kicks programme in Toxteth. 

McAllister said: “It’s very important to educate both parents and kids about internet safety and the potential dangers online. When it’s used in the right way, the internet is a fantastic tool for learning in a fun and engaging way.” 

Andrea Cooper, head of the LFC Foundation, added: “I’m delighted that the LFC Foundation hosted another successful Safer Internet Day. It’s so important that we help to educate both youngsters and parents on the dangers online whilst also highlighting the many positives of new technologies and how to use them in a safe and fun way.”

Liverpool face battle for Inaki Williams

HEAD NEWS - Mon, 20/02/2017 - 17:53

Borussia Dortmund are preparing to trigger the buyout clause of Liverpool and Juventus target Inaki Williams, report Calciomercato.

Williams is widely considered one of the most exciting young talents currently playing in La Liga. Though only 22 years old, he has already found the back of the net 21 times for Athletic Bilbao.

His electric pace makes him near-impossible to stop when in full flow. Williams’ good performances for Athletic also earned him a call-up for the Spanish national team, where he made his debut for his country against Bosnia and Herzegovina last May. His astronomical potential appears to have captured the attention of several European heavyweights.

According to Calciomercato, both Juventus and Liverpool are in the hunt to secure Williams’ services – but they could both be beaten to it by a fellow household name.

Calciomercato cite Spanish reports in claiming that Dortmund have jumped to the front of the queue to sign Williams. They believe that the Bundesliga giants are preparing to match his £42.6million in order to secure his signature in the summer transfer window.

Update on Reds chase for Inter Milan midfielder

HEAD NEWS - Mon, 20/02/2017 - 13:24

Liverpool have been told that Inter Milan midfielder Ivan Perisic, who played for two seasons under Jurgen Klopp, is not for sale.

There have been rumours that the 29-year-old Croatian could be a target for English clubs in the summer and the link to Liverpool is obvious - given that Perisic's career took off under Klopp at Borussia Dortmund.

Italian newspaper La Gazetta dello Sport claim Liverpool, as well as Manchester United and Chelsea are keeping tabs on Perisic.

But Inter chief Piero Ausilio insists the Croatian winger is going nowhere.

"I do not think it is either Perisic's or our intentions for him to leave," he said.

"He is part of a massive project and we do not want to sell our players.

"We cannot envisage an Inter without Perisic.

"We are not going to get rid of our best players."

How Steven Gerrard prepared for Academy role

HEAD NEWS - Mon, 20/02/2017 - 12:48

A cold winter morning at Liverpool’s Academy in Kirkby. Dark and gloomy, rain the air and frost on the ground.

It’s 7.30 and a group of Reds coaches are preparing for their morning five-a-side in the Ian Frodsham Indoor Arena.

It’s a regular game, but this one isn't. Not today.

Because this time, a living legend is joining in. Better bring your A-game.

Steven Gerrard’s return to Liverpool last month caught nobody by surprise. It was on the cards from the moment he called time on his illustrious playing career that he would go back to the club. His appointment in a wide-ranging coaching role at the Academy felt, Gerrard said, like “completing the circle.”

But what is less well known is that Gerrard prepared for his new role by travelling to Kirkby for those morning games, for weeks before his appointment was finalised.

The aim was to get to know the staff at Kirkby. The likes of U18s' manager Neil Critchley and Tom Culshaw, the U13s coach, play in the games, along with other coaches and members of the club’s scouting and recruitment team.

They’re competitive, and of a more than decent standard.

"They're a proper game, very competitive. It could be the Champions League or the World Cup final as far as Stevie is concerned, it's a good game" joked one Kirkby source.

The games also meant early starts for Gerrard, who would be showered, changed and heading home by 9am while the rest prepared for a day’s work. Weeks later, he would be joining them on the staff. He has been working predominantly with Barry Lewtas and his U16 side so far.

The five-a-sides continue though.

Gerrard announced his retirement from playing in November, after two years in America with Los Angeles Galaxy. The 36-year-old made 710 appearances for Liverpool across 17 years, scoring 186 goals, captaining the club between 2003 and 2015. He also captained England at two World Cups, winning 114 caps for his country.

So one imagines he has raised the standard in those Kirkby kickarounds somewhat...

LFC submits planning application to improve Anfield accessibility

LiverpoolFC.TV - Mon, 20/02/2017 - 12:00

Liverpool FC has today submitted its planning application to Liverpool City Council for the club's proposed accessibility improvements at Anfield Stadium.

The plans include an increase in the number of wheelchair bays from 195 to more than 250 positions; adding more than 150 extra amenity and easy access seats around the stadium; improved viewing positions for visiting disabled supporters; and new raised disabled bays in the Centenary Stand for home disabled supporters.

These changes are in line with the new Premier League Accessible Stadia guidelines and have been developed in consultation with the Liverpool Disabled Supporters Association (LDSA) and the official Supporters’ Committee.

The planning application also includes external improvements to the stadium comprising a new lift to give inclusive access to the Centenary Stand and expansion of the Kop to increase the general admission seating by around 470. The proposed new lift tower will be the full height of the Centenary Stand and will take disabled supporters to the upper levels of the stand, where they will access new wheelchair platforms at the rear of the lower tier.

There will also be other work done to the stadium to increase wheelchair positions and accessible seating for both home and away supporters.

The majority of the construction work is planned to be carried out during the 12-week close season in the summer and is expected to be completed by the start of the 2017-18 campaign.
