John Aldridge expects Jordon Ibe to excel amid Raheem Sterling speculation - 1 час 51 минута назад

With Raheem Sterling looking likely to leave Liverpool this summer, John Aldridge has taken to social media to praise 19-year-old winger Jordon Ibe.

The former Reds striker told Kicca that he felt Liverpool should cut their losses with Sterling this summer, pointing to big-money interest from Premier League rivals Manchester City.

“I think Brendan Rodgers should let Raheem Sterling leave for Manchester City now,” he said. “The sooner he leaves the better for all involved.

“All this transfer talk is making a mockery of Liverpool Football Club.”

Moving on from Sterling, Aldridge suggested the club already possess a ready-made replacement in the form of Ibe.

“Raheem is obviously a hugely talented player but Liverpool have a top replacement in Jordan Ibe.

“I’ve been watching Jordan play since he was 15. He’s a terrific player and has bags of potential.

“In fact I think he’s got as much if not more potential than Raheem and will go on to be a better player.

“On top of that, he’s a big strong lad who is very direct with a great shot on him.”

Aldridge continued by offering his take on the saga surrounding Sterling’s future, with his representative, Aidy Ward, playing a big part in his demands to leave Merseyside.

“Sterling is obviously too young to think for himself so his agent has been doing his thinking for him. For the sake of Liverpool Football Club they should take the millions on offer and then everybody will be better off.

“Raheem will be a bit richer and Liverpool will be rid of a player who doesn’t want to play for the club.

“It’s a win-win.

“Manchester City are a big club and Raheem will get paid well and play Champions League football so he will be happy.

“And life at Anfield will go on without him because he’s certainly not bigger than the club.”

Aldridge, who scored 63 goals in 104 games for Liverpool, presided over the transition of John Barnes to the Liverpool first team in 1987.

Ibe has often been compared to Barnes during his short time at Anfield so far, but what Aldridge must consider is that the former is just 19 years old, while Barnes joined as a 23-year-old.

Aldridge would be wise not to heap pressure on Ibe, who remains a raw talent.

Rickie Lambert a transfer target for West Brom – reports - 2 часа 12 минут назад

Expected to leave Liverpool this summer after a poor 2014/15 season, Rickie Lambert is subject of interest from West Bromwich Albion, reports claim.

Rickie Lambert could soon leave Liverpool, according to reports on Tuesday, with Premier League outfit West Bromwich Albion interested in signing him this summer.

James Pearce of the Liverpool Echo writes: “The big frontman, who is expected to leave Anfield this summer, is wanted by Baggies boss Tony Pulis.

“Lambert has also been linked with Queens Park Rangers and Premier League new boys Bournemouth.

“The 33-year-old turned down a £5million transfer to Aston Villa back in February but is now resigned to moving on in search of regular first-team football.”

Lambert’s departure seems inevitable ahead of the Reds’ renewed charge for the top four in 2015/16.

Danny Ings and Divock Origi have already joined Brendan Rodgers‘ attacking ranks and Aston Villa forward Christian Benteke is being actively pursued.

West Brom’s interest may have stemmed from the arrival of scout Mel Johnson, who joined the Midlands side after leaving Liverpool in November.

Pearce continues: “Johnson and fellow Baggies new recruit Andy Thorn, the former Coventry City boss, have been involved in drawing up West Brom’s list of summer targets.”

Lambert’s physical style would certainly suit the rigid, direct tactical system of Pulis’ West Brom.

Still a talented player, a move down the Premier League table could see him flourish.

He would leave with his reputation intact, with Liverpool supporters appreciation his endeavour following his £4 million return to his boyhood club last summer.

Who are Liverpool’s most divisive former players? - 4 часа 25 минут назад

Numerous Liverpool players down the years have split opinion among fans, and Henry Jackson takes a look at some of the most divisive Reds stars.

Football supporters have varying opinions on everything to do with the game; it’s what makes discussing it so fascinating a lot of the time.

Whether it be tactics, signings, managers or many other aspects of football, there is always the potential for debate.

Divisive players come very high up on the list.

While some Liverpool stars past and present are clearly seen as magnificent by the masses, and others truly abysmal, there are those who fans simply can’t agree on.

You only have to look at Brendan Rodgers‘ current squad to see several faces who one supporter will feel completely different about to another.

Jordan Henderson may be Liverpool’s likely next captain, but he clearly still divides opinion, while Martin Skrtel, Mamadou Sakho, Joe Allen and Mario Balotelli also fit into that category.

Those current Reds players are not alone when it comes to dividing opinion, however, with many other former Anfield heroes finding themselves in the same boat in days gone by.

Dirk Kuyt

Although Dirk Kuyt is now generally seen as a terrific servant to Liverpool, there were many during his time on Merseyside who simply never warmed to him—it always seemed baffling, in truth.

The likeable Dutchman may not have been the most technically gifted footballer, and when he had an off-day he was particularly poor, but more often than not he delivered at crucial times.

Barring Steven Gerrard, there arguably hasn’t been a better big-game player for the Reds in the Premier League era, with Kuyt scoring vital goals against Man United, Everton, Chelsea, Arsenal and some major European sides.

The 34-year-old never became the goalscoring sensation some expected him to be when he joined from Feyenoord in 2006, which might be the reason for some of the criticism that came his way.

He made a seamless switch from being an out-and-out striker to a very effective right-sided player though, and gave Liverpool six years of terrific service.

John Arne Riise

John Arne Riise spent seven years at Anfield between 2001 and 2008, and although deemed a top-class left-back by many, there were plenty who struggled to find a fondness in their heart for the Norwegian.

Although an exciting full-back who scored great goals—the free-kick against United remains one of Liverpool’s best ever Premier League strikes—Riise was also criticised by some for shooting too often and lacking a killer final ball.

His detractors will tell you that for every shot that flew into the top corner, another 15 would go straight into the Kop, and his defensive expertise also came into question.

Maybe it was his disastrous late own goal against Chelsea in the 2007/08 Champions League semi-final that turned some against him, but his lack of popularity does seem a little odd.

We certainly wouldn’t complain if the Riise of 10 years ago was Liverpool’s left-back going into the 2015/16 season, would we?

Danny Murphy

Danny Murphy was a classic example of someone who was considered underrated by many supporters, but also overrated in the eyes of others.

The Englishman was always a very dependable midfielder though, and played a key role in Liverpool’s sensational cup treble success back in 2000/01.

Any player who scores three winning goals at Old Trafford should virtually gain legendary status on Merseyside, but Murphy never quite received the adulation some his peers would have, had they achieved such a feat.

He wasn’t the greatest player by any means, and the likes of Gerrard and Didi Hamann were very much superior in the middle of the park, but 44 goals in 249 games from midfield is more than respectable.

Rafa Benitez carted him off to Charlton Athletic upon his arrival in 2004, and although many thought he was sold far too soon, others expressed their relief at his departure.

Emile Heskey

These days, Emile Heskey has almost become something of a cult figure, but to some during his Liverpool days he was a waste of space.

The former England striker was extremely divisive throughout his career, and never more so than at Anfield.

On his day, Heskey could be unplayable, particularly in his earlier days, but there were also occasions when he made Djimi Traore look like Pele. This is where the frustration lay with many fans.

The burly striker was an important player under Gerard Houllier though, and his brilliance in attack with Michael Owen often kept Robbie Fowler on the substitutes’ bench. Maybe that irked some, given Fowler’s unrivalled popularity.

It was never easy to adore Heskey, given his inconsistency, but when he was on top of his game he could be a real handful.

Jamie Redknapp

A generation of Liverpool fans growing up now will only know Jamie Redknapp as Sky Sports’ fence-sitting football pundit, but he was a very divisive member of the Reds midfield between 1991 and 2002.

The ex-England man was never universally loved by the Anfield crowd, perhaps partly due to his unfairly perceived flash Cockney style—Raheem Sterling has also suffered in that respect.

There was always a feeling that Redknapp never reached his potential, largely due to rotten luck with injuries, and his failure to kick on after signing as a hugely exciting youngster frustrated many.

The criticism of the former Tottenham man all seems a little unfair, however, and had it not been for those aforementioned injuries, there is every reason he would’ve been a top-class player for Liverpool.

Blessed with a terrific range of passing, underrated defensive qualities and an eye for the spectacular, Redknapp deserved more plaudits than he received at the time.

Which other players have divided fans during the Premier League era and beyond for Liverpool? Let us know your selections in the comments below.

Joe Gomez: Brendan Rodgers was “defining factor” in Liverpool move - 5 часов 25 минут назад

New Liverpool centre-back Joe Gomez has spoken following his move from Charlton Athletic this summer, and praised Brendan Rodgers‘ role in his transfer.


Joe Gomez was confirmed as the fourth signing of Liverpool’s hectic transfer window earlier in June, and the 18-year-old has spoken about his decision to leave Charlton Athletic and the role Brendan Rodgers played in his £3.5 million move.

“I met [Rodgers] and that was a defining factor. He was positive and has already shown he will give young players an opportunity,” he said.

“I thought carefully where would be the best place and give me the best chance to play – it was Liverpool.”

The Reds reportedly beat Arsenal, Manchester City, Borussia Dortmund and Aston Villa to sign Gomez, and the centre-back said that Merseyside was always his favoured destination.

“I can understand Charlton fans wanting me to stay another year – that it would be best for me to develop – but I’m ambitious and want to keep learning.

“Going to Liverpool was hard to turn down.

“I had my mind set on Liverpool and tried not to let the talk of other clubs distract me. I didn’t really focus too much on anything else.”

At just 18 and with only one season of Championship experience to draw upon, Gomez is not expected to make any waves at Anfield in 2015/16.

But the Catford-born England youth international has high hopes.

“I understand it is a massive club and a step up from where I’ve been playing,” he continued.

“There are a lot more challenges but I’m going in with the aim to challenge for a place, regardless of age.

“I want to prove myself, take this opportunity with both hands and try to play.

“There is going to be a bigger spotlight but I’ve got to thrive under that and use it in a positive way.”

Gomez certainly believes he has the ability to succeed at Liverpool, now he must prove it on the pitch—but Reds supporters must not expect too much from him too soon.
