Just Arsenal at related • 0 views
We are building a fans favourite XI based on the current Arsenal formation, and we move onto the three behind the favoured striker now. Many of you will no doubt opt to field both Alexis Sanchez and Mesut Ozil, although the former will be in the voting as a striker also. Unfortunately we don't have [.

Rodgers Urges Patience

Anfield Talk at related • 0 views
Liverpool boss Brendan Rodgers believes his players need to be more patient at the top end of the field if they are to overcome their goalscoring problems.
The Reds have found the net just twice in three Premier League matches - both goals coming in the 2-2 draw with champions Manchester City.
Their problem has been compounded by the limited options Rodgers has up front, having sent Andy Carroll on loan to West Ham and failed to bring in a replacement after a deadline-day move for Clint Dempsey broke down.

Rodgers Rues Carroll Move

Anfield Talk at related • 0 views
Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers admits he would not have let Andy Carroll move to West Ham if he had known he could not replace him.
Rodgers allowed Carroll to move to the Hammers on loan thinking Clint Dempsey would be arriving from Fulham.
Liverpool was then outbid by Tottenham who offered the United States international a more favourable deal.

Responsibility, Teamwork, Goals – We could be onto something

Arsenal Arsenal at related • 0 views

A trip to Anfield is always full of trepidation, despite Liverpool's recent decline, they are still a team that hold many dangers. If the Kop are allowed to get into the game they can be a telling 12th man roaring their team on. With this in mind Arsène Wenger and his newly arranged squad deserve a large amount of credit for making the game a very relaxed enjoyable affair for us fans.

Timbers Blog at related • 0 views
In our final season preview entry for Oregonlive.com, we look at the forwards. While the Timbers have a wonderfully talented group of players up top, there are also questions surrounding each one of them. If the answers to those queries turns out positive, there are plenty of opposing goalkeepers that will have sleepless nights facing this bunch.

Portland Timbers sign former West Ham United forward Frederic Piquionne

Timbers Blog at related • 1 view
The Portland Timbers added some veteran experience to their forward core by signing former West Ham United forward Frederic Piquionne to a contract. He will be officially added to the roster once his international paperwork is received and approved, which likely rules him out for the March 3 match versus New York.

There was a time not too long ago when the U.S. national team enjoyed a wealth of midfield options and a lack of forwards. As the team heads into Tuesday's must-win World Cup qualifier, the Americans are faced with the opposite problem.

Injuries to Michael Bradley and Landon Donovan have exposed a lack of midfield depth and left Jurgen Klinsmann's team lacking attacking punch and stability.

Looks like Deuce might need a new nickname. Clint Dempsey has been handed the number 9 jersey at Tottenham Hotspur according to Sky Sports.

Though it may be a bit presumptuous to put much meaning on Dempsey wearing the number often reserved for a club's star striker, it's another sign Spurs manager André Villas-Boas plans to give Dempsey a significant role.

With the current financia crisis that is engulfing La Liga clubs, never has the development of academy players been more important.

The academy players can provide a steady stream of fresh talent to the first team, as we see in Barcelona, or they can provide a stream of talent that can then be sold off to pay down as club's debt.

Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers may consider a move for former Chelsea striker Didier Drogba, after admitting that he made a mistake in letting Andy Carroll join West Ham United on loan and not acquiring a suitable replacement.

The Forwards: A Statistical Analysis of Heaps' "We Will Attack"

The Bent Musket at related • 0 views

If the Revs were awarded a point for every time you've heard the Jay Heaps mantra, "We Will Attack" we'd be comfortably atop the Eastern Conference. But we're not; and the Revs standings-wise are in no better position than 2011. Even though we find ourselves in the cold, dark and lonely basement of the East, can we say that there has been improvement in the main area the rookie coach sought to improve?

Revolution halt Crew's hot streak, snap 10-game winless skid

Soccer By Ives at related • 0 views



The New England Revolution had not won in 10 matches. The Columbus Crew had not lost in six. With one result, both streaks are over.

The Revolution found a way to cool off Designated Player Federico Higuain and the red-hot Crew, earning a 2-0 home victory to snap a franchise-worst winless skid and halt Columbus' momentum in the race for a postseason berth.
