Liverpool is in New York City, in preparation for its sold-out game at Yankee Stadium on Wednesday against Premier League rival Manchester City.
My son and I attended the Liverpool practice yesterday in Princeton. It was a quietly whispered open practice with just a few hundred fans there, and the team including Brendan Rodgers, made sure that everyone got their autographs or a word or two.
Liverpool Football Club has announced the signing of 19-year old Belgium striker Divock Origi.
Liverpool paid £10m to acquire the services of the young forward on a five year deal from French club Lille, but he will remain at the French club for a further season on loan.
Origi has netted six times in his 40 appearances at Lille, and impressed many during the World Cup, where he displaced a misfiring Romelu Lukaku as starting striker and netted the crucial goal in Belgium's 1-0 win over Russia.

Can €100m signings help Liverpool mount serious title challenge? - originally posted on Soccerlens.com
At the beginning of last season, few gave Liverpool a chance of breaking into the top 4. Regardless to say, practically no one gave them any chance of being genuine title contenders. Even individuals from within the club publicly stated that finishing in the Champions League places is top priority.
Just over a month ago, BeIn Sports broke the story that former Atletico Madrid and current Monaco star Radamel Falcao was heading back to Madrid to join the European Champions.
Falcao, who I consider to be the best center forward in the world, seemed like a natural fit for Madrid. While defenses were scared of Madrid's BBC (Bale, Benzema, Cristiano) attack last season, they would have been terrified at the thought of facing Bale, Falcao and Ronaldo.
It's a throwback to Tottenham's preseason last July, and if it weren't still so raw, it would be almost comical. With the departure of Luis Suarez, Liverpool is scrambling to repair the delicate threads of their lineup, which was so crudely torn apart by the Catalan Club. While Reds fans wonder what to do with their Suarez kits, Brendan Rodgers is wondering if and how he can muster the Kop for another push at the title but with their talisman no longer heading their attack, will Liverpool be able to sustain their dazzling form of last season?

Liverpool had gone through a sort of mixed emotion last week. The club celebrated the signing of Southampton defender Dejan Lovren but had to cancel the deal for Loic Remy, because of the player's medical concerns.
The Southampon fire-sale continues with centre-half Dejan Lovren the latest Saint to jump ship ahead of the new season. The Croatian centre-half follows former Southampton team-mates Rickie Lambert and Adam Lallana to Liverpool in a move worth £20million to the south coast side.
Never one to eschew a chance to throw the cat among the pigeons, QPR boss Harry Redknapp has questioned the story that Hoops' striker Loic Remy failed his medical ahead of his £8.5million move to Liverpool.
The general consensus among the UK footballing media was that a heart issue had caused the French striker's move to Liverpool to crash and burn.
A solitary goal from Raheem Sterling was enough to see Liverpool pip old foes Olympiakos in the Super League of Beautiful Friends And Eternal Happiness Super Champions Cup in Chicago last night, with recent £20million signing Lazar Markovic making his first appearance for the Reds.
Despite it looking like all systems were go a few days ago, Liverpool have pulled out of the £8.5million deal to sign Loic Remy from QPR after the striker failed his medical.
Remy had flown out to Bostonto undergo his medical and finalise the finer details of the transfer, but Liverpool held fire on completing the dealafter issues were raised over the results of his physical examination.
I don't know if it will, but the transfer of Loic Remy to Arsenal could be back on. It seems as though Arsene Wenger has been linked with a move for the talented French striker forever, with some Arsenal transfer rumours claiming this summer that the Prof had finally got his man. But apparently Wenger [.
Liverpool may make an offer for PSG's Ezequiel Lavezzi following the collapse of the Loic Remy deal.
The PSG frontman is thought to be surplus to requirements as they step up their pursuit of Angel Di Maria. In order to buy the Real Madrid forward, the Parisians must first off-load some players and Lavezzi, who is valued at £18 million, is one of them.
So, as I'm sure you will have heard, Liverpool have missed out on the signing of Loic Remy after the Frenchman failed a medical in Boston with Reds staff. With speculation travelling around about the whole ordeal no matter how the final decision was made and who made it, Liverpool fans can't help but feel disheartened after missing out on the striker.
Many Chelsea fans couldn't understand a quote from Joe Cole shortly after he signed for Liverpool. We had read that he felt that he had joined the biggest club in the world. Cole now sets the record straight.
Speaking in an interview with CFCUK, Cole said:
‘When I joined, the guy interviewing me said "you've joined the biggest club in the country" and reeled off the trophies they'd won.
