Steven Gerrard vs Jamie Carragher All-Star Charity Match

The domination that could have been. I have seen this team lineup before… Luis Suarez partnered up with Fernando Torres up top with Steven Gerrard and Xabi Alonso dominating the midfield. It wasn’t a dream. Honest. It was when I continued to play my FIFA season from EA Sports FIFA 2011. Now at the end of the month my video game roster becomes a reality and then some when the Steven Gerrard vs Jamie Carragher All-Star Charity Match happens at Anfield on March 29th. Well and then some, when you put in John Terry alongside John Arne Riise and Frenchman Thierry Henry in the starting 11 to bolster the attack. I know… right? Check out Gerrard’s starting 11:

Gerrard’s XI: Brad Jones; John Arne Riise, John Terry, Stephen Warnock; Ryan Babel, Xabi Alonso, Steven Gerrard (C), Kevin Nolan; Luis Suarez, Fernando Torres, Thierry Henry

Jamie Carragher’s team is pretty fierce as well. Pepe Reina returns to man the sticks with Alvaro Arbeloa at his side, passing it up to Luis Garcia and Raul Meireles with Dirk Kuyt and Craig Bellamy creating havok and space for Didier Drogba to attack. Not bad either. Here is Carragher’s starting 11:

Carragher’s XI: Pepe Reina, Martin Kelly, Jamie Carragher, Alvaro Arbeloa, Luis Garcia, Raul Meireles, Jonjo Shelvey, Craig Noone, Dirk Kuyt, Didier Drogba, Craig Bellamy.

Speaking of the man with the great golf swing…  Haha… As each player got the invite, their social media spread the word. My favorite’s was an old rivalry within the club. John Arne Riise’s tweet about his upcoming match against Bellamy had to be my favorite out of all the former Anfield stars.

I think it will be team Gerrard by a landslide. Who do you think has the stronger team going into the All Star Charity match? It is great to dream what could have been. Terry clearing it to Gerrard, to Alonso out to Suarez blistering down the left. He crosses to Henry flicked by Torres… Goal. Or Carragher to Meireles. He finds Kuyt on the right. Kuyt through ball to Bellamy, who strikes it off Riise’s head, rebounded to Drogba and past Jones for a wild goal. Haha… a man can dream.

So who’s team takes it? Steven Gerrard or Jamie Carragher? Let us know via Social Media by tagging us at @AnfieldShop & @AnfieldShopBlog plus use the hashtag #AnfieldShop

Liverpool On A 10 Game Unbeaten Run In The Premier League

In a bold move by manager Brendan Rodgers, Liverpool started the match on the road at St. Mary’s without striker in the line-up. As it turned out Liverpool didn’t need one to see of a hard fighting Southampton. Goals by Philippe Coutinho and Raheem Sterling guaranteed Liverpool’s 2-0 victory over Southampton. This victory extended their unbeaten run in the Premier League to 10 games. Taking a look at the table, they also sit only three points from third place.

Taking a look at the upcoming schedule, Liverpool play Manchester City, Burnley (who drew versus Chelsea), an FA Cup quarterfinal against Rovers, Swansea (who beat Manchester United), Manchester United followed by Arsenal. Liverpool is still alive in the Europa League as well, thanks to Mario Balotelli’s penalty versus Beskitas (I’ll take it).  The rest of March is pivotal to whether we are celebrating the continued momentum of Steven Gerrard’s final season with Liverpool, versus hoping the rest of the league is struggling as well to keep their ship afloat into May. The way the youthful core of Liverpool is playing with Raheem Sterling and Philippe Coutinho creating the chances, I like our odds.

*Raising my pint glass*

Here’s to a keeping big momentum on our side. Top four or bust, let’s get back in the Champions League next season, eh? …and let’s bring home some silverware for Gerrard’s last run. You’ll Never Walk Alone!

The Anfield Shop wants to know if you thing we’ll be bringing home silverware this season, in either the FA Cup or Europa League. Do you think we’ll finish in the top 4? Let us know via Social Media by tagging us at @AnfieldShop & @AnfieldShopBlog plus use the hashtag #AnfieldShop

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.”

Liverpool, Manchester United, ICC, Miami

Liverpool Squares Off Against Manchester United In Miami

Liverpool, Manchester United, ICC, Miami

This may be a preseason tournament for Liverpool and Manchester United, but there is no such thing as a friendly between these two sides. Liverpool is competing for their first piece of silverware as they are set to face Manchester United in Miami, Florida today in the final of the Guinness International Champions Cup. Brendan Rodgers recognizes lining up against that side down the road, is never to be taken lightly.

“It’s more than football. It’s life,” Rodgers explained. “It is two cities, not very far apart, but historically they have always been huge rivals. It’s arguably the biggest game in the world and for it to be here in the United States is wonderful for the supporters and the organizers. They are the two biggest clubs in Britain and two of the biggest in the world so it will be a fantastic game and we are looking forward to it.”

Liverpool and Manchester supporters are always fired up when these two sides collide. Less than two weeks separate us from the start of the EPL season. What a way to prepare us for this upcoming campaign. Which ever team wins here, will get a head start on momentum going into the season.

“Not many of these games are friendly,” said Rodgers. “You saw the Manchester City game was competitive. Top players see every game as a competition. There are never too many friendlies playing for Liverpool.”

Liverpool and Manchester: A Tale of Two Cities


Liverpool and Manchester: A Tale of Two Cities

by Randy Villarba

T’was the best of times, t’was the worst of times… it was the age of Brendan Rodgers and Roberto Martinez, it was the age of David Moyes and Manuel Pellegrini. It was the epoch of belief, it was the epoch of incredulity. It was the season of Light, it was the season of Darkness. It was the spring of hope, it was the winter of despair. We had everything before us at the end of the season, we had nothing before us at the beginning. We were all going direct to a heaven we have not seen in 24 years, we were all going direct the other way.  In short, the period was so far like the present period, that some of its noisiest Kopites insisted on its being received. For Liverpool or for Manchester, in the superlative degree of comparison only.

It was a season that made us dream. A few weeks back, Liverpool FC fans thought we were going to win the league. Anfield was a choir of blind confidence and faith. We felt the emotion, the energy… After 24 years, on the anniversary of Hillsborough, everything was supposed to be lining up. But now… down the road at Manchester, they are singing songs about winning the title.

When LFC dropped the ball, City took it to the box and scored. Many of the pundits have blamed that slip against Chelsea. Others the stumble with Crystal Palace down the stretch. You could rewind the tape to the Christmas gift we gave Hull. I blame no one. Even though we did not win the league, this season was still a success. The trophy may be vaulted down the road, and the songs of the other city may reign this off season. But at least it isn’t being celebrated at Old Trafford. Congratulations to Manchester City… we will see you in New York this summer at Yankee Stadium. Liverpool FC hits the United States in a Summer pre-season tour with matches in Boston, Charlotte, Chicago and NYC for the International Champions Cup.

Brendan Rodgers was awarded the League Managers Association’s Manager of the Year Award for guiding LFC to second. Luis Suarez is, and remains a solid foundation to the Liverpool squad. The support of the fans, manager and players behind him have pretty much put the fire out on his preseason desires to force LFC out of his contract. Add Daniel Sturridge into the fold and we watched the birth of one of the most prolific duos in the game today in SAS. We are a legitimate contender for the title next season, no question.

Finishing second in league means we overachieved the aim for fourth. We are Champions League bound ladies and gents. We may have not lifted the title… but we did raise our confidence and expectations. We are not aiming for 4th place next year. We are aiming for silverware. We are aiming for trophies. We are aiming to win the league. This season Liverpool got its swagger back. We go again next season. We are Liverpool tra la la la la…

You’ll Never Walk Alone!
