Top four on line in Liverpool vs. Man Utd

50-50 Challenge
 By Steven Kelly

Liverpool should compete in Europe for love and trophies, not just the money

Liverpool won the 2005 Champions League at a time when it still put maximum effort into European competition.

This week marked the 50th anniversary of Liverpool's first win in a European Cup quarterfinal, the first of many. It was a match that stands out even in this club's illustrious history on the continent as it was the only time the Reds went through on the toss of a coin.

The mere thought of Liverpool's 1965 tie with FC Cologne could give Arsene Wenger nightmares. There was no away goals rule then anyway, but the two clubs drew both the original ties 0-0 and were then forced to play a replay on...

Bayern's Guardiola to coach Qatar in 2022; Liverpool want Walcott

ESPN FC's Alejandro Moreno and Janusz Michallik discuss Xavi Hernandez's reported spurning of MLS for Qatari club Al Saad.
Pep Guardiola looks set to take charge of the Qatar national team for the 2022 World Cup.

As the summer window draws ever closer, the transfer rumours and gossip continue to spread.

Top Story: Pep to coach Qatar in 2022 World Cup

Readers of Germany's Sport Bild recently received an eye-opener.

According to the Guardian, the German newspaper published a story indicating current Bayern Munich boss Pep Guardiola could be enticed by a lucrative deal to coach Qatar's national team in the 2022 World Cup, which the country will host.

Keep in mind Qatar, which will not have to quality for...

Skrtel suspension could pave way for Lovren to revive his Liverpool career

The ESPN FC crew react to Martin Skrtel's Instagram post following the news that he has been banned for three games by the English FA.

The three-match suspension handed to Liverpool's Martin Skrtel for his apparent stamp on Manchester United keeper David De Gea was perhaps the least surprising news of the week. Once you've been charged by the FA, the question is not whether you will be found guilty but rather just how many games you'll have to sit out. Contesting a charge is a pointless exercise that at best will fail and at worst will result in an increased suspension.

Skrtel was suitably unimpressed with the verdict, immediately...

Arsenal, Liverpool on alert as Luiz Adriano opens door on Shakhtar exit

After making his Champions League debut for Shakhtar Donetsk in 2007, Luiz Adriano has quickly become a household name with nine goals through four matches.

As the summer window draws ever closer, the transfer rumours and gossip continue to spread...

Luiz Adriano ready to leave Shakhtar?

Luiz Adriano has been a revelation for Shakhtar Donetsk this season, banging in a remarkable nine goals in seven Champions League appearances for the Ukrainian champions.

So, you can imagine the eyes of various managers across the globe lighting up upon hearing the news that the 27-year-old striker is ready to leave Shakhtar once his contract expires in December.

Liverpool's fans shouldn't be upset with Raheem Sterling's wage demands

ESPN FC's Steve Nicol and Ross Dyer discuss the importance of the contract negotiations between Liverpool and Raheem Sterling.

Tuesday was the third anniversary of a tiny event that could well become the focus for football historians of the future.

On March 24, 2012, Liverpool were losing 2-1 at home to Wigan and manager Kenny Dalglish played his last card with five minutes to go. He brought on Raheem Sterling for his debut. He did not score, the Reds lost and the game barely registered with the outside world.

For supporters it was the first glimpse of a talent that, like Robbie Fowler and Michael Owen before him, had been...

Steven Gerrard's legacy must be measured by success and failure

The ESPN FC panel debate whether or not Liverpool's Steven Gerrard will be remembered for his red card against Manchester United and his slip against Chelsea.
Steven Gerrard, Zinedine Zidane and Diego Maradona all didn't get to say goodbye in the way they wanted.

Even Roy Race could not say goodbye quite how he wanted, and he was a fictional character. For those unfamiliar with his work, Race was the comic-book captain, striker and superstar for Melchester Rovers. His animated tales ran for 60 years and were, for successive generations of British children, the gateway drug for a lifetime's addiction to football.

Every Race story ended up with him scoring the goal that won the game, the title, the cup. He normally did so after overcoming all manner of obstacles:...
