Again With The International Breaks

Liverpool had three familiar faces in the England national team lineup in a 3-1 victory over Slovenia this past weekend as Jordan Henderson, Adam Lallana and Raheem Sterling all started for Roy Hodgson’s squad on Saturday night. The victory kept England in the drivers seat and on top of Group E for Euro 2016.

The Liverpool lads had a solid showing, and found themselves involved in a couple of the goals. Henderson played the full 90 and found the net in the 57th with a header… unfortunately an own goal. Lallana almost hit the target, but fortunately for England his shot rebounded to the feet of Danny Welbeck who finished the attack with the goal. Both Lallana and Sterling were substituted later in the match. LFC’s Rickie Lambert was also on hand as a substitute for the match, but remained on the sidelines.

For team England, it was all smiles. However with Italy, it was another reminder of how the international breaks can hinder a club. Mario Balotelli left the Italy squad this past week and was sent back to Merseyside with a hamstring injury. Luckily this appeared to be a minor injury, as all reports have Balotelli returning to the lineup to possibly face Crystal Palace. Another good sign that things might finally be steering in the right direction is the fitness of Daniel Sturridge. Perhaps we can finally see what this partnership can do if both are fit for this weekend. Brendan Rodgers certainly wants to get those two on the same page, as a few pundits have put him on the hot seat. I stand behind Rodgers, but we can all agree if the results continue to elude LFC… the hot seat isn’t too far away.

The battle of club and country weighs heavy on a supporter. Where are you watching the match this weekend? Let us know at the Anfield Shop where you are via Social Media by tagging us at @AnfieldShop & @AnfieldShopBlog plus use the hashtag #AnfieldShop

Liverpool vs Chelsea – Live Commentary

Hello Liverpool fans, Randy Villarba from The Anfield Shop here. This is my delayed attempt to live comment on the LFC vs Chelsea match. I was supposed to meet the rest of LFC SD down at Princess Pub in Little Italy, but unfortunately I lost the battle with the snooze button. I will be updating my comments through the 90… but due to the fact I hit the snooze button one too many times this morning… we’ll be starting at the minute 16… WOW it’s already 1-1.

An 8th minute goal by Emre Can and a 13th minute goal by Gary Cahill of Chelsea… oh man I shouldn’t have hit snooze.

20th minute: I thought that was a handball… but it wasn’t. My eyes haven’t focused yet. My coffee is still brewing.

27th minute: I feel Anfield should be singing more…. oh wait. There goes the Kop Choir.

29th minute: So far we are 6 to 5 on shots compared to Chelsea.

31st minute: LFC has double the possession by the minute, at 21 minutes to Chelsea’s 10. Come on lads… we knew we had it in you.

34th minute: Even though we have more minutes in possession… I feel like we’ve been watching LFC in defense more. We’re watching too much of the ball in our own half the last quarter hour, it seems.

35th minute: Miglonet would be my man of the match so far, if he hadn’t let Cahill’s shot in… just saying. He’s been a wall stopping Chelsea’s advances.

43rd minute: Sterling gets hit with a forearm shiver… yet receives the yellow card. Puzzling.

Half-time: It’s 1-1, all even. I am now reminded of why I strongly dislike goal-line technology.

Upon finally seeing the replay of Emre Can’s goal during the halftime replays… golasso!

LFC has 56% possession to CFC’s %46. So far it’s keeping me on the edge of my couch and too nervous to eat breakfast.

Second half started… in the 47th minute and Chelsea is pressing right out of the gate.

48th minute: Ivanovic had his hands all over Sterling. Glad the ref got the right color kit on that foul.

50th minute: LFC seems to be on their heels backpedaling a lot. Chelsea is bring the heat… but the back line is still holding firm.

51st minute: Sterling streaking down the wing, unable to find Balotelli.

56th minute: LFC is being out shot 13 to 7 by Chelsea. Liverpool’s defense is holding tight, but so far can only muster counter attacks instead of building a possession attack.

58th minute: The Kop Choir sings, “Steve Gerrard… Gerrard…”

61st minute: Ivanovic is on the ground, play continues. Long ball to Balotelli… OFFSIDES!

64th minute: Balotelli has a blatant shove right in front of the ref. Yellow card.

66th minute: Chelsea on the attack… this doesn’t look good. Shot, blocked… rebound… sigh. Diego Costa goal. Liverpool trails 1-2. Sigh… still plenty of time in the game, but that felt like a gut punch. Come on LFC!

69th minute: A double sub with Borini and Allen on for Coutinho and Can. Twenty minutes and change lads. Prove something!

74th minute: great lob by Allen, to Borini… Henderson with the shot… deflected. Come on! Pressure LFC!

75th minute: Chelsea chant echoes inside Anfield. Anger rising…

77th minute: LFC corner… wait for it… Gerrard send it in… nothing.

78th minute: Lambert is on for Balotelli. A great effort from Balotelli, but no final ball in the Premier League.

81st minute: Liverpool is having a good run of possession, really starting to make Chelsea work. However, that final ball to the equalizer is still nowhere to be found.

86th minute: Tackle from behind, Diego Costa… yellow card.

87th minute: Gerrard with a bouncing strike…. HANDBALL by Cahill…. but of course no whistle. That was a clear penalty!

89th minute: Diego Costa is still on the grass.

90th minute: Five minutes of extra time. The game isn’t over lads and ladies.

Full time: Miglonet’s last touch sums up how this game went. I am going back to bed.

Songs of the Kop Choir: 10 Liverpool FC Chants

Liverpool FC fans… We’ve had a rough month… okay rough 2014-15 campaign. That result against Newcastle at St. James park did not make waking up at 5:45am PST that much fun. Win, tie or lose (…although I think we all agree we would prefer a win), LFC is in my my veins. No sleep on match day mornings has been part of my weekend mornings since I came back from studying in England.

Even with the rough run we’ve had in the league as well as the Champions League and the Premier League campaign, I still love hearing the Liverpool songs chanted by the supporters. Whether it’s at Anfield or on the road, the support echoing around the pitch always made me proud to be a Liverpool fan.

Even when you find yourself in a LFC pub, the chants echoing off the walls always makes me smile. Other than the iconic You’ll Never Walk Alone, here is a look at 10 of The Anfield Shop’s favorite supporter chants via Kopoholic and ShowMeTheFootball on youtube.com

“In Istanbul… We won it 5 times.”

Fields of Anfield Road

Oh Liverpool We Love You

Steve Gerrard Chant

Brendan Rodgers

Daniel Sturridge Chant

Philippe Coutinho Chant

Mario Balotelli Chant

Liverpool Liverpool Liverpool

We’re Going To Win The League (Hopefully we can sing this one sooner than later… #MakeUsDream)

Liverpool Faces Real Challenge

The midweek Champions League 0-3 trouncing of Liverpool at Anfield by Real Madrid was certainly the litmus test letting us know exactly how the LFC squad measures up. The reigning champions of Europe marched right into Anfield and only needed 45 minutes to prove their point, underlined by three clinical goals. The applause that Christiano Ronaldo received for his masterful display when was substituted, was Anfield’s tip of the cap to the better side that day. It has been a rough month for Liverpool and our place in the Premier League table as well as in our ECL group shows the uphill battle LFC now has before them.

Real Madrid now sits on top while Liverpool sits in third place in Group B behind PFC Ludogorets Razgrad due to goal differential. All three teams under Madrid, including FC Basel 1893 only have 3 points through one round of Champions League play. All is not lost, as long as LFC gets results in their next go around with Group B, especially against Basel and Ludogorets. Social media went into a panic after the Real Madrid game. While a lot of the points raised from the posts and tweets were arguably valid, one thing Liverpool fans need to take into perspective is be grateful that we are finally included in the discussion about Champions League football. Things could be worse… we could be Manchester United or Tottenham Hotspurs on the outside looking in.

Speaking of Manchester United, we are currently sitting right on top of them on the EPL table. So all is not lost. It is a long season, with plenty of time to right the ship. While catching the juggernaut that Chelsea FC is this season seems like a reach, finishing in the top four at campaign’s end is still an attainable goal. Not only attainable, but a gauge of a successful season or not for Brendan Rodgers and Liverpool. To not be in the Champions League football equation next season would not only be a major disappointment, but may weigh heavy into considering the future of Steven Gerrard with Liverpool.

Plus the panic that everyone is starting to have about the EPL campaign is a little premature. We are sitting above United and are currently out of the top 4 only by goal differential as we sit tied with West Ham on points. Granted Chelsea is 9 points clear, but let’s not split hairs here. As soon as Liverpool pushes to the top half of the top four, then we can start the discussion on what needs to happen to catch up with Jose Mourinho and the lads at Chelsea.

The eventual return of Daniel Sturridge will boost LFC’s goal scoring ability, and hopefully in turn finally open Mario Balotelli‘s Premier League goal scoring account. The transfer window is right around the corner, and Rodgers and company are well aware of the gaping holes in depth that Liverpool have. I’m optimistic. You should be too. “At the end of the storm, there’s a golden sky.”

Sing Loud LFC! Daniel Sturridge Returns! REVISED: Oh Wait… One More Month

(This article was written before the announcement that Daniel Sturridge will be out another month with a calf strain…. ughhh… I apologize getting excited about Sturridge’s return. I have revised the article with the new injury update. His injury was my fault for celebrating too soon… or Roy Hodgson’s… I don’t know, I’m not a doctor.)

Sing his name so it echoes off the rafters of the stadium, pub or living room you are catching this weekend’s match at, Daniel Sturridge rises again. The possible return of Liverpool striker Sturridge against Queen Park Rangers tomorrow is like rolling out the muscle car you have been working on for weeks to cherry out. LFC took the new Sturridge led team for a run around the practice track… it had to be towed back in the garage for a calf injury.

Hopefully Sturridge’s eventual return is the final piece to the goal scoring engine that LFC needs to return back to their title challenging form. Liverpool fans feel like the title bus has been sitting parked in the garage since last season, and are ready to get back to the goal scoring confidence and attractive football we were all getting used to seeing from our boys.

In honor of this weekend’s return to action we’ve got a new promo code. Take $10 off any purchase of $50 or more. Use code ‘Take10′. Ends on Saturday October 18th.

“We’ll have to see where he is at tomorrow and go from there,” Liverpool boss, Brendan Rodgers said to reporters.

“He’s been out a long time, nearly six weeks.”

“Daniel has made us a real threat and when you take him out of the team the model of your game is different,” said Rodgers.

“But when he is playing he is one of the top European strikers. It’s important for him to be playing games.”

Sadly, Sturridge is not going to be back for some time. We were hoping that the return of our main hitman would free up Mario Balotelli, so he can break his Premier League duck. Balotelli has scored in the Champions League, but not in the EPL. It will be a rough go, as recent reports in the last hour now say Sturridge will be out for another month, after suffering a calf strain in his first session back since his thigh injury.

“If it was my choice, I would always go with two strikers. It’s the way I like to play,” Balotelli said in Sport Magazine.

“But I am working, and I can see already that the Liverpool fans really like me, although I know that maybe they are a little upset because I don’t score. I see they appreciate that I am working hard, though,which is nice for me.”

The roller coaster of the international break is over. Let’s leave the Roy Hodgson discussion for the next time our boys report to international duty. Tomorrow… against QPR… #WeGoAgain

LFC’s International Break: The Good, Bad and Ugly

Liverpool is once again on an international break as the European Qualifiers are here. The Anfield Shop wants to keep you up to date with how our Reds are doing as they report for international duties.

The Good…
Rickie Lambert cheered his Liverpool teammates from the bench as Jordan Henderson, Adam Lallana and Raheem Sterling were all on the pitch for England’s 5-0 dismantling of San Marino. All three Reds had a strong showing on the field. Better yet, they survived injury free. Speaking of injuries, Daniel Sturridge was reported to be back at the training grounds at Melwood. Not a moment too soon, as Liverpool could really use his goals right about now.

The Bad…
Sturridge’s thigh injury under Hodgson’s watch last international break has us all on edge when our boys aren’t with Brendan Rodgers. Having to deal with Hodgson’s use of Liverpool keeps LFC fans on edge, especially as Hodgson lashed back out at Rodgers’ critiques of the use of his players earlier this week.

“I need to win games, just as he does,” said Hodgson. “I need my best players. He (Sterling) has played quite a lot but there must be six or seven who have played as many minutes. I do not expect managers to tell me whether players should be selected, no more than I would dream of telling them who to pick.”

The Ugly…
Is there no end to the injuries? As frequent as the injury bug has hit Liverpool, the international breaks always make me nervous for moments just like these. Dejan Lovren is down, adding to Liverpool’s already dwindled back line. Early reports were that Lovren had suffered an injury in training with Croatia for their upcoming European qualifiers.

Sky Sports was reporting that according to the Croatian Football Fedration, a statement on the CFF website read: “During training on Wednesday, Lovren felt pain in the abdominal wall… Igor Boric (a specialist) at St Catherine Hospital showed there was a tear and he will not be ready for performances in Sofia and Osijek.”

Take an injured roll call… Joe Allen, Emre Can, Jon Flanagan, Dejan Lovren, Mahmadou Sahko, Daniel Sturridge. Liverpool players seem to be dropping like flies. It is all about the next man up, as when you are competing against the best in Europe… there are no breaks. After the English Premier league matches return against Queens Park Rangers, Liverpool will have to face Real Madrid.

Jordan Rossiter: Who is This Lad?

Jordan Rossiter first joined Liverpool’s youth system at age six and eleven years later he made a dream debut for the first team squad in Tuesday’s Capital One Cup third round match against Middlesbrough. Rossiter’s 30 yard strike from distance was on a low laying rope from fate when he pounced on Rickie Lambert’s rebounded shot.

“It was brilliant. I’m made up,” said Rossiter in the Liverpool Echo. “To score on my debut, I couldn’t have asked for any more. It’s a dream come true to be honest.”

“I got told by the manager at training on Monday that I’d be starting. I was a bit shocked but I couldn’t wait to get out here.”

When the ball hit the net in the 11th minute, it spelled relief not only for the fans at Anfield, but the pressure on the shoulders of a 17 year old lad. The joy on Rossiter’s face when he scored was a well welcomed highlight for LFC fans. When he celebrated and jumped in the air, it seemed like he may never land. Rossiter put in a solid 79 minutes of play before being substituted to a well deserved round of applause from the Anfield faithful.

“I was a bit nervous but playing with some of the best players in the world helped,” said Rossiter. “I was speaking to a few of the senior players before kick-off who just told me to enjoy it. It was a great opportunity for me and they helped me through.”

The emotion on Rossiter’s face was priceless. It reminded me why I love this game. At age 17 I was listening to punk rock, questioning authority and staring university right in the eyes. At 17, Rossiter became Liverpool’s second youngest scorer behind Michael Owen. Rossiter has a solid future of Anfield within his grasps. Not to get too hyped up on the lad early… we have seen plenty of promising young starlets come and go through Liverpool’s Academy. We can only hope what we have seen of this kid is a sign of things to come.

“I can’t even explain it. I can’t even remember what happened,” Rossiter said. “I’m looking forward to getting home and watching it on the TV. To score at Anfield is just a great feeling.”

“I thought he was excellent, showed really good composure, his temperament was good and he followed up the finish really well, because it wasn’t an easy one, he had to play it through bodies,” Rodgers said in a Sky Sports interview.

There are so many topics of discussion, disappointment and news hitting the wire about our beloved Liverpool. Liverpool’s surprise struggle to hit the net until the last moment against Ludogrets in our Champions League debut. Let’s try to put the struggle to find the goal against Aston Villa after Gabriel Agbonlahor’s goal at Anfield (even though we dominated possession) behind us. West Ham United last weekend…. ugh… enough said.  Liverpool’s goal struggles continued against Middlesbrough (until the penalty kicks, of course).  Sadly, now the recent reports that LFC was named as one of the squads by the UEFA financial fair play investigation. Just for today, let’s put our worries on hold and focus on the young lad that had goal number one in Liverpool’s 14-13 win over Boro.

“I know I need to keep my feet on the ground and keep on improving. If I do that then hopefully I’ll get more appearances in the future,” said Rossiter.

With Liverpool’s match against Everton this weekend, we should mention that Rossiter grew up in the Everton Valley and actually was a childhood Everton fan. Before you break out the torches, so were Jamie Carragher, Robbie Fowler and Ian Rush. Speaking of Fowler… God was the first person to say that Rossiter had the potential to be the next Steven Gerrard, after he watched him in the 2013 NextGen series against Inter Milan.
