LFC legends visit CanTeen charity in Sydney

LiverpoolFC.TV - Mon, 22/05/2017 - 20:55

Gary McAllister, Jason McAteer and Craig Johnson visited the CanTeen cancer charity in Sydney on Monday.

The trio of Liverpool legends met with young cancer patients, took part in a Q&A and signing session and joined in with football activities including SnookFootball and Football Target.

LFC also handed over free match tickets to the 70 children present at CanTeen - Australia's biggest cancer charity for young people (12-15 years) - for Wednesday’s game against Sydney FC at the ANZ Stadium.

The club are in Sydney to host various activities ahead of their post-season friendly on May 24.

McAllister said: “CanTeen is a charity across Australia that really makes difference to young people's lives. We've been supporting them since we first come to Australia and we thank them for inviting us here today.”

Lallana sees room for improvement after season of progress

LiverpoolFC.TV - Mon, 22/05/2017 - 17:15

Adam Lallana wants Liverpool to use their top-four finish in the Premier League as a springboard to compete for honours next season.

The midfielder was on target in a 3-0 victory over Middlesbrough at Anfield on Sunday that secured the Reds’ place in the 2017-18 Champions League play-off round.

But while Lallana is relishing the prospect of competing in European football’s most prestigious club tournament, the No.20 feels he and his teammates - along with any new signings Jürgen Klopp makes in the summer - can achieve more in the coming campaigns.

“There had been a bit of pressure the last couple of weeks but I think we’ve dealt with it fantastically. We got our reward after a tough season,” the England international told Liverpoolfc.com.

“It has been a good season, not just myself but I think the team has come on leaps and bounds. 

“There is still a lot of room for improvement and hopefully we can continue that in the Champions League next season.

“We’ve got top four now, that was one of the big aims this season. Hopefully we can add to this great squad and really compete for silverware next year.”

Reds draw up five-man shortlist for summer window

HEAD NEWS - Mon, 22/05/2017 - 14:45

Jurgen Klopp confirmed Liverpool have money to spend as they finalise a five-man shortlist for the summer transfer window.

The win over Middlesbrough on the Premier League's final day confirmed the Reds' return to the Champions League for only the second time in eight years and with it the promise of increased funds for manager Klopp to spend.

Klopp is increasingly confident of bringing in Fulham's Ryan Sessegnon to add competition at left-back while Klopp is also looking at Hull’s Andrew Robertson in that area after seeing the Tigers relegated from the Premier League.

"Money-wise? We have enough money. That's a difference, of course. We don't hide more money then get it when we need it, it's a normal business," said Klopp, who also has Southampton centre-back Virgil van Dijk and RB Leipzig duo Timo Werner and Naby Keita on his list of targets.

"We are already pretty much done (on recruitment). Do you think I will sit with (sporting director) Michael Edwards and say 'What do you think? What do we need?' - most of the work is already done.

"Now we have decisions that need to be done, negotiations or whatever. But it's all good and we are prepared and we will see what will work out and what won't.

"There is no training in the next few weeks. We fly to Australia (on Monday evening), we have a game, then fly back and the holiday starts for all of us.

"I have a little bit of work to do but it's a few phone calls and a little bit of talking about wonderful things like football, Liverpool and other things, so it's good."

The Liverpool Ladies Development Squad claimed the FA WSL Northern Development League title with a 4-1 win over Durham on Sunday.

A brace from Cassia Pike overturned a half-time deficit, before further strikes by Lizzie Earle and Meg Taylor sealed a result that settled the championship for the Reds.

Vicky Jepson’s side, who won 13 of their 18 fixtures across the season, finished three points ahead of Birmingham City – and many will now hope to feature for the senior team during the ongoing Spring Series.

Ward reaches Wembley after shoot-out heroics & Awoniyi continues scoring streak – Liverpool FC Loan Watch

ThisIsAnfield.com - Mon, 22/05/2017 - 14:00

Ward’s heroics sparked wild celebrations, but more importantly, set up a final showdown against Reading at Wembley where the ‘keeper will be desperate to sign off a fantastic spell with promotion to the Premier League.

We're on the wayyyyyy ?????? pic.twitter.com/Wk5mKIN4ZN

Awoniyi continued his delightful goalscoring streak by netting a third goal in as many games to help NEC Nijmegen to a crucial 3-1 relegation playoff first-leg win over FC Emmen.

Incredibly, the Nigerian came off the bench to score for the third game running, netting his side’s third goal with a finish of such class that it leaves you wondering how he went eight months without a scoring.

After collecting a loose ball on the edge of the box, Awoniyi produced some dazzling footwork to skip inside and create an angle to shoot, sending a classy curling finish into the far corner.

Awoniyi’s hot streak came to a disappointing end on Sunday, however, with the Nigerian frustratingly an unused sub in his side’s 1-0 second-leg win—a result which edges NEC closer to Eredivisie survival.

After missing Red Bull Salzburg’s title-clinching win through injury last week, Andre Wisdom made an instant return to the team for his side’s first game as champions against Admira on Saturday.

Manager Oscar Garcia instantly restored the fit-again Reds loanee at centre-back, where Wisdom has shone in the second half of the campaign as the Red Bulls stormed to title glory.

And Wisdom was in typically solid form on his comeback, helping post another clean sheet in a routine 2-0 win with a faultless defensive performance as he completed the full 90 minutes.

The campaign drew to a close for two of Liverpool’s remaining loaned men this weekend.

Allan Rodrigues signed off a hit-and-miss season at Hertha Berlin on a disappointing note, turning in a poor display as his side ended with a 6-2 thrashing at the hands of Bayer Leverkusen.

The Brazilian started the final-day clash in a two-man central midfield in Hertha’s 4-4-2, but was withdrawn at half-time for an ineffective display in a dire opening 45 minutes which Hertha ended trailing 3-0.

It was a disappointing end to a largely frustrating spell for Allan, who made just 16 appearances in all competitions—only eight of which were starts—failing to register a single goal or assist.

However, the final-day thrashing didn’t take the shine of what has been a positive season for Hertha, who finished sixth to secure a Europa League qualifier for next season.

And Allan, who is set to stay at the club for a second year, will hope to play a part in that European adventure as he looks to produce a more productive campaign in 2017/18.

Meanwhile, Jon Flanagan ended the season in the very position he spent the vast majority of a hugely disappointing campaign at Burnley: on the bench.

The full-back once again watched on as an unused substitute for the duration of the Clarets’ 2-1 final day loss to West Ham at Turf Moor, where Flanagan made a 25th unused outing of the season.

Indeed, playing just 10 times in all competitions, Flanagan’s loan was undoubtedly the least productive of all 16 loanees this season—and arguably the most damaging too, having played such little football on return from long-term injury.

Flanagan will now return to Anfield hoping to convince Klopp he still does have an Anfield future—but it’s hard to see one for him after such an unimpressive spell, and with the squad to be strengthened this summer.

Finally, there was no domestic action for Brooks Lennon who missed both of Real Salt Lake’s games due to international duty with United States at the U20s World Cup in South Korea.

The American played all of his side’s opening clash which ended in a 3-3 draw with Ecuador, and he claimed two assists—delivering perfect crosses to supply his team’s second and third goals.
