Steven Gerrard, from Liverpool to L.A., is still just a boy who loves football

Hollywood-style start: Gerrard scored on his MLS debut for the Los Angeles Galaxy against the San Jose Earthquakes on July 17.

STEVEN GERRARD TAKES his seat in the front row of a private box at StubHub Center and settles in to watch his first game as a stateside member of the Los Angeles Galaxy. It's July Fourth, and the stadium is sold out, 27,000 strong and festive. The Riot Squad, one of the more notable L.A. supporters groups, has been well-refreshed by the truckload of California beer that Gerrard bought them for their tailgate -- veteran move, that -- accompanied by a hand-signed letter: "I look forward to meeting...

Adam Lallana faces a crucial season at Liverpool as attacking options increase

ESPN FC's Dez Corkhill and Jason Dasey break down Liverpool's shock draw with the Malaysia XI.
Roberto Firmino and Christian Benteke take part in their first training session with their new club

Newly-appointed Liverpool captain Jordan Henderson gave his club and country colleague Adam Lallana all the moral support in the world yesterday on the club's official website.

He made it clear that the former Southampton player knew he hadn't pulled out all the stops in his debut season for his new club, which only made him doubly determined to do so in this one.

Sound familiar? It should, because that's exactly what defender Dejan Lovren has been claiming before the new campaign begins. In...

Rickie Lambert not at fault for unsuccessful Liverpool tenure

Roberto Firmino and Christian Benteke take part in their first training session with their new club

With several clubs reportedly interested in acquiring his services, Rickie Lambert is edging towards the Anfield exit door just one year after he was involved in one of the most "feel good" football stories of last summer: Veteran frontman, returning to the club he had supported all of his life and who had released him as a teenager, after a career mostly spent plying his trade in the lower leagues. It was almost too good to be true.

Unfortunately, signing for the Reds was just about as good as...

Dejan Lovren must improve, but is he lacking protection at Liverpool?

ESPN FC's Dez Corkhill and Jason Dasey break down Liverpool's shock draw with the Malaysia XI.
Dejan Lovren needs help, but may not be getting it anytime soon.

There are various weak spots across the top Premier League sides, but when it comes to Liverpool many believe there is one area that requires more attention than most. Central defence has yet to get an upgrade amid all the summer spending, and the future of Dejan Lovren is certainly up for debate.

The might of the Malaysian All Stars XI ghosted past him like he wasn't there Friday, and in a drab and tired-looking 1-1 draw against the Asian minnows, Lovren continued to look fragile.

It was the kind...

Mario Balotelli offered lifeline by Italian third-tier ASD Lupa Castelli

Former Liverpool winger Luis Garcia gives his take on Mario Balotelli's situation at Anfield.
The ESPN FC crew discuss the future of Liverpool's Mario Balotelli after the signing of Belgium international Christian Benteke.
Former Liverpool captain Steve McMahon tells ESPN FC's Jason Dasey that Liverpool should do everything they can to sell Mario Balotelli.

With his career stagnating after one largely miserable season at Liverpool, it's no secret that Mario Balotelli, or at least his agent, is currently in the process of assessing his career options.

Despite the likes of Inter and AC Milan both reportedly snubbing Balotelli's advances this summer, the want-away Reds striker has still been offered an escape route back to Italian football -- though not quite at the level he was previously accustomed to.

Indeed, the lifeline has come courtesy of ASD Lupa...

Possession-happy Liverpool held by makeshift Malaysians

ESPN FC's Jason Dasey is joined by Dez Corkhill to review Malaysia XI's 1-1 draw with Liverpool.

Despite being held to a shock 1-1 draw by the Malaysia XI, Liverpool completed an unbeaten tour of Asia and Australia in Kuala Lumpur on Friday night.

Brendan Rodgers' side won three and drew one of their four pre-season games.

After Patrick Wleh gave the home side a shock lead in the 13th minute, Jordon Ibe equalised for Liverpool 15 minutes later at the Bukit Jalil National Stadium. Here are three thoughts on Liverpool's first game in Malaysia since 2011:

1. Makeshift Malaysians fight hard
