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

Pepe Reina Liverpool FC LFC Keeper

Reina’s First World Cup Cap & Four LFC Players Advance

Pepe Reina Liverpool FC LFC Keeper Anfield Shop AnfieldShop
Pepe Reina’s First World Cup Cap
In Group B’s final round, our former keeper Pepe Reina received his first World Cup cap when Vincente del Bosque gave him the nod. Surprisingly this was the first time Reina had to man the posts during World Cup play, even though he had 32 international caps cruising into his 33rd. Reina posted a clean sheet with a 3-0 Spain victory over Australia in Curitiba, displaying why he has been old reliable not only for Napoli this past season, but over his tenure with Liverpool FC.

“It is the dream of any player to play in a World Cup,” said Reina on the Liverpool website.

“…I fulfilled a dream, which was to play in a World Cup. Despite the team being eliminated I have the personal satisfaction of having played and having done so with a win.”

Reina is still under contract to Liverpool until 2016, as he returns to Anfield after Napoli failed to throw down the money to keep him.

“I don’t know about my future. I want to be calm about it and there are people who are working on that. I have two years left on my Liverpool contract and the situation is the same as a month ago.

“I’ve not spoken to Rodgers and I don’t know what they think but I have a contract and in the end that is what counts. I have to join up with Liverpool and there’s nothing more I can do.”

Four LFC Players in the Knockout Round
The 2014 FIFA World Cup could still be lifted by a LFC player. Going into the knockout stages, Liverpool still has four players that can lift the World Cup Simon Mignolet of Belgium, Mamadou Sakho of France and of course Sebastian Coates and Luis Suarez of Uruguay.

Where Are You Watching the FIFA World Cup?
Monday through Friday, I’ve been watching the World Cup matches at the office… reacting a little too loud to my smartphone screen. More than the regular work day would warrant. Tomorrow I’ll be watching the US take on ‘Ze Germans’ and Ronaldo +10 play Ghana at the OC Tavern in San Clemente, CA. Let us know at The Anfield Shop on Social Media, where you’ve been watching the World Cup this year? Anfield Shop wants to know.

Philippe Coutinho Liverpool FC LFC Liverpool World Cup 2014 Brazil

Brazil Bound: Liverpool FC Players Headed to World Cup

Philippe Coutinho Liverpool FC LFC Liverpool World Cup 2014 Brazil

Philippe Coutinho was snubbed for Brazil's World Cup, but we all know he should be on that squad.

“My heart it gets so heavy, at the end of May…”

The Die Toten Hosen lyrics typically place where my heart is come June. Not this year though… in 2014, Liverpool FC has a total of 12 players representing their country in Brazil. Most pundits are reporting 10, but they’re forgetting… we just signed Ricky Lambert and don’t for get a Liverpool favorite on loan in Italy.

With all these lads headed to South America… it isn’t too far fetched that we could see a Liverpool FC player lift the World Cup. Easy money is on the home town favorite in Brazil, although they did snub Philippe Coutinho (which was hard to believe, taking a look at his season). I say it’s still never a bad bet to bet in Uruguay… as we all know Luis Suarez is capable of magic. Perhaps this is England’s year? By my blood lines, I am cheering along side our former starting keeper Pepe Reina and Spain.

Lift your pint glasses. Cheers to our men headed to Brazil. Safe travels. But first and foremost… Stay HEALTHY for the love of all that is holy! I love the World Cup… but I personally fall under the school of Club over Country. Like I said earlier, if you cut me… I bleed Liverpool FC.

Bring home the World Cup one of you!

  2. Steven Gerrard (England)
  3. Jordan Henderson (England)
  4. Glen Johnson  (England)
