Emre Can woeful as shambolic Liverpool suffer West Ham defeat

Shaka Hislop blames Liverpool's defence after their shocking home defeat to West Ham on Saturday.

Liverpool's season took a dreadful turn as they were trounced 3-0 at home by West Ham on Saturday and saw Philippe Coutinho sent off.

Coutinho now misses the trip to Manchester United after the international break, and Brendan Rodgers will have to pick up the pieces after this shock.

West Ham fully deserved their victory, and while the scoreline might have flattered the visitors a little, Liverpool deserved nothing from the game, as they were error-riddled in defence and insipid in attack.

Liverpool nightmare as West Ham stun Anfield with Coutinho sent off

ESPNFC's Shaka Hislop reflects on his former club West Ham's first win at Anfield since 1963, leaving Brendan Rodgers with much to ponder.

LIVERPOOL, England -- Three thoughts on West Ham's stunning 3-0 victory at Liverpool in the Premier League on Saturday afternoon.

1. A nightmare for Liverpool

When examining a shock result, you must decide whether it was the favourites playing particularly badly or the underdogs excelling. It's always a blend of both, of course, but here it was primarily the former.

West Ham defended perfectly well, but they offered little attacking threat, and their two goals came almost out of nothing.

Liverpool flop Mario Balotelli is confident but fragile, autograph says

Mario Balotelli's nightmare spell at Liverpool was cut short this week when he joined AC Milan on loan.

As a marker of just how much scrutiny Mario Balotelli's return to Milan is being put under, Italian website Sportmediaset have employed the services of a professional calligrapher to examine the striker's autograph.

Indeed, Sportmediaset have posted a video of Candida Livatino's expert analysis and apparently, Balotelli's squiggle reveals he is a "confident but fragile" young man.

Who'd have thought?

"The signature of Mario Balotelli is very interesting and it says a lot about him," Livatino claims.

Liverpool at Anfield a nightmare for West Ham, but curse can't last forever

ESPN FC's Shaka Hislop says Liverpool have been fortunate with some key decisions going in their favour so far.
ESPN FC's Shaka Hislop says Liverpool have been fortunate with some key decisions going in their favour so far.

Liverpool's 2015-16 fixture list has to be the weirdest they've ever been given -- it alternates between very difficult away games and easy home matches, with West Ham at Anfield next up this Saturday.

Supporters are bouncing between gratitude for any sign of improvement one week and fully expecting victory the next. Of course, whenever you speak of expecting your team to win a match, a number of other problems present themselves, but in the case of West Ham at home, it's hard to speak in any other...

Liverpool's best and worst of recent transfer spending

ESPN FC's Shaka Hislop responds to James Milner's comments that Liverpool "have closed the gap on the teams that finished in the top four positions in the Premier League."

Earlier this week my colleague Steven Kelly wrote an excellent article on Liverpool's 2014 transfer window. It is regarded by many as one of the worst in the club's history, yet there is still the opportunity for some of those players to alter people's perception of the business conducted by the Reds a year ago.

Emre Can, Dejan Lovren, Alberto Moreno, Adam Lallana and Divock Origi may yet prove it wasn't a complete write-off. In truth they won't have to do a great deal to avoid the tag of "worst...

Balotelli's Milan contract: No clubbing, no smoking, no crazy haircuts

No more haircuts like this for Mario Balotelli.

If the good folks at Gazzetta della Sport are to be believed, Liverpool striker Mario Balotelli is going to have his work cut out trying to stick to the rules of his new loan contract at AC Milan.

Balotelli, who has a lengthy rap sheet of misdemeanors -- including smoking regularly, having fireworks in his bathroom, posting material found to be 'racist and anti-Semitic' on social media, partying before games, as well as multiple training ground issues -- will be forced to adhere to a...
