Steven Gerrard's "strange" comments, Real Madrid looking to Hugo Lloris

ESPN FC's Steve Nicol believes Steven Gerrard's recent comments about his club future are quite bizarre given that he is one of the most important players to ever play for Liverpool.

Will Transfer Talk ever run out of rumours for the thirsty transfer minions? Not likely judging from this latest roundup of bits from all about Europe.

Hugo Lloris has a desire to play on the big stage of the Champions League and a move away from beleaguered Tottenham to Real Madrid could be the quickest way to get there.

So long, Lloris

Real Madrid's search to find a suitable backup/replacement for the hot-and-cold Iker Casillas in goal may end up at the doorstep of White Hart Lane.

The Express say Carlo Ancelotti has a strong interest in goalkeeper Hugo Lloris, even though the Frenchman just signed a new five-year deal with Tottenham.

It seems that Lloris wants...

New faces, style, rotation and workload all add to Rodgers' Liverpool struggles

Liverpool, Arsenal, Chelsea and Southampton are all in action on Saturday in the Barclays Premier League.

"What did we used to talk about before rotation?"

Those words were spoken by a friend during the momentous 2000-01 season when Gerard Houllier's Liverpool won three trophies and navigated the club's debut entry into the Champions League.

After six seasons of Houllier and another six from Rafael Benitez, discussions over the merits and disadvantages of utilising the squad no longer happen. Rotation was an established fact and here to stay.

Houllier constructed a squad to keep moving smoothly through...

Newcastle vs. Liverpool pits lucky Pardew against luckless Rodgers

Liverpool, Arsenal, Chelsea and Southampton are all in action on Saturday in the Barclays Premier League.

If there is one thing, just at the moment, that Alan Pardew seems to have and Brendan Rodgers appears to lack, it is good fortune.

That sounds like the faintest of praise for the Newcastle manager, but it is not meant to be. It sounds, too, like a defence of his Liverpool counterpart -- a whitewashing, an excuse -- but it is not meant to be that, either. A good manager is a lucky manager, runs the cliché. Maybe it is true, too, but it is not quite as simple as that. Football is all about...

Liverpool must not underestimate resurgent Newcastle

Mario Balotelli scored for the first time in eight matches against Swansea in the Capital One Cup, but is that enough to get him firing again?

Liverpool travel to the north-east on Saturday for a lunchtime fixture that all of a sudden looks an awful lot tougher than it did a week ago. Newcastle United were in the bottom three and facing a tough trip to face Tottenham at White Hart Lane on Sunday. They fell behind early, which will have surprised nobody, but came back to win 2-1, which will have surprised everybody, perhaps even themselves.

Three days later they followed it up with an even bigger upset, dumping holders Manchester City out...

Player ratings: Dejan Lovren leads mediocre Liverpool to cup win

Liverpool celebrate Dejan Lovren's late winner against Swansea on Tuesday.

Late drama at Anfield saw the Reds achieve victory against an organised Swansea City side that, just 10 minutes before the end, couldn't have possibly dreamt the night would finish so badly for them. They had looked fairly safe and secure as the game crept into the latter stages.

Balotelli comes to Liverpool's rescue in Capital One Cup comeback

Dejan Lovren's late winner secured a quarterfinal place for Liverpool.

LIVERPOOL, England -- A trio of observations from Liverpool's 2-1 win vs. Swansea in the Capital One Cup fourth round.

1. Balotelli finally delivers

When Mario Balotelli jogged onto the Anfield pitch in the 79th minute, Liverpool were going out of the Capital One Cup and were exiting without a whimper. Indeed, for the second time in three seasons, Brendan Rodgers faced the prospect of elimination by former club Swansea.

Yet one of the benefits of having an unpredictable character is that his impulsive,...
