Spurs v Liverpool Preview

Liverpool head off to White Hart Lane for their next Premier League encounter, 3 points separating them from 'Arry's Boys in the table where they sit 9th and 6th respectively behind a top four that are starting to pull away from the chasing pack.

The Reds haven't travelled well under the guidance of Roy Hodgson, whose away statistics throughout his career are best left to one side and looked at only when your optimism is at its highest.

Hodgson: Closer To The Nightmare Or The Dream?

Liverpool presently sit in 9th position of the Premier League, fact.

From the possible 42 that have been on offer so far this season, they have not even collected half of those and sit on 19 points after 14 games and a minus goal difference in the hands of Roy Hodgson, not good enough you would normally say with little interest in a second thought on the matter.

Liverpool's problems in recent months, even years, have been very well documented but is unrest and off field problems and failings at the leading Premier League sides the cause of a much closer EPL end to end or has competition just stepped up across the board?

Manchester United's finances continue to come under scrutiny while Wayne Rooney thought he wanted pastures new, across the City at Eastlands Manchester City's star studded squad looks set for a January sale as Mancini continues to play too much of a defensive card with his attacking talent for many a fans liking.

John W. Henry not only has blacker eyeballs than anything unfortunate enough to be still swimming around the Gulf of Mexico but he's also a very clever man. When I was still suckling in 1981 JW Henry was establishing his own company and within 10 years had two offices and one of largest commodity brokerage firms in America and was /is considered an extremely gifted commodities futures trader.

Liverpool 3 v 0 West Ham Summary

Kop That at related • 0 views

Liverpool got back to winning ways at Anfield, as the first half performance given by the Reds was more than enough to leave West Ham without any answers. A result that moves Liverpool up to ninth in the Premier League, just three points off Bolton Wanderers in fourth place.

West Ham were poor on the day to say the least, getting the basics across the back four as often wrong, as they did right.

Liverpool went into the Chelsea game confident after a run of 3 consecutive. Gerrard's hat–trick in midweek against Napoli gave everyone a much needed lift going into a difficult match. Rumours were circulating that Glen Johnson would be starting on the right of midfield, which in my opinion is where he should be playing as his attacking play outshines his defensive attributes.

Poll: Should Johnson Return At Right Mid?

Kop That at related • 0 views

Glen Johnson looks set to make his first appearance back for the Reds tonight after missing the last four games, as they face the visit of Napoli at Anfield in the Europa League. But does it need to be solely at right back?

Johnson, a naturally attack minded wing back more than a defensive minded full back has looked a shadow of his normal self this season, with a mixture of injury, lack of confidence and tactical changes since the arrival of Roy Hodgson credited as being the main reasons for the dip in form, a change that has also filtered through at International level.

Napoli are the next arrivals at Anfield as the Europa League beckons once more, Liverpool will be looking to make it a third win in a row as Roy Hodgson samples an up turn in form if not an up turn in popularity.

With one eye on the visit of Chelsea at the weekend, the likes of Steven Gerrard and Fernando Torres could well be rested once more although Hodgson remained tight lipped on the subject, preferring to "add a little excitement" as to who would take the field with the side already informed.

Alberto Aquilani is a name often touted by Rafael Benitez's detractors as being one of many expensive flops signed by the Spaniard. Yet the accusation couldn't be further from the truth.
