There are two categories of people who keep a very close eye on things like injuries, acquisitions and transfers. Supporters and bettors. Few clubs have as ardent and keen fans as Liverpool FC, and recently there have been several rumours of planned transfers to Liverpool. For supporters, this may promise future success against bitter rivals like Man Utd. For bettors, the true value of such rumours can make the difference between winning or losing a wager. If you have information on how Liverpool will perform next week, .

Top Players Always In The Focus

Being one of the premier football clubs in the world, Liverpool FC counts some of the best players of all time in their ranks. Naturally, the issue of recruiting new talent and buying established players is constantly on the mind of managers, fans and bettors alike. Conversely, supporters often worry that favourite players will be transferred to other clubs. The constant trading of players between Premier League clubs is the cause of much speculation. Not only supporters but also bettors, commentators, journalists and anyone with a stake in the game want to be the first in the know.

Liverpool FC has been the recent subject of several player transfer rumours. Notably, the Brazilian talent to be on his way to Barcelona. As if this wasn’t enough, fans may also have to worry about the Welsh talent Ben Woodburn being snatched by the Spanish. The wealthy Barcelona club reportedly has its crosshairs set on either, or both, of these young players. While this player trading has become an integral part of the sport, many fans and commentators lament it.

Many Complain About A Commercialised Sport

Being one of the most popular and successful football clubs in the world, Liverpool FC is part of an enormous industry, turning over gastronomical amounts of money each year. Liverpool had a turnover of £302 million in 2016 and made a £60 million profit in 2015. In 2016, the almost €2 billion more than any other European league. Such amounts of potential profit naturally create incentives to trade players in a more or less clandestine and opportunistic fashion. In light of this, many fans worry about a commercialised sport which is losing its soul.

The owners of the top football clubs, some critics would argue, profiteer on the emotional and cultural investment that fans and supporters have in their clubs. Football is losing some of its soul when short-term profit, rather than loyalty and a sense of belonging, governs which club a player ends up joining. The players themselves often have no say in where they end up, turning them into mere pawns in a game of profit.

Use Whatever Advantage You Can When Betting

Your interest in player transfers and other club news might be that of a bettor, rather than a fan or supporter. You will then be keenly aware of how beneficial it is to know the things that no one else knows. A mere sliver of insight can give you the edge you need to figure out the best wager on any given game. Do you have some inside knowledge, or simply think you’ve got the next game figured out? Why not take a chance, go ahead and place your bets on this game as many other betters do daily.

Using a betting site or online bookmaker to lay down your wager on the next Liverpool FC game is a great way to create some extra excitement as you watch it. Betting is, after all, not just about chasing a big win, but also a popular way to inject some adrenaline into everyday life. Whether or not you’re a rabid supporter, watching a game can get a lot more fun with a wager on the line.

Legendary Chelsea defender predicts Liverpool’s Premier League fortunes this season

Former Chelsea skipper John Terry has provided his predictions for the Premier League top four this season and he believes Liverpool will be joined by Manchester City and Chelsea. He then added that Manchester United and Tottenham Hotspur would be left to fight for the fourth position. (h/t the Daily Mail)

“My top three for this season will be decided between City, Liverpool and Chelsea,” Terry said in an exclusive interview with the Daily Mail.

“That leaves United and Spurs fighting for fourth.”

As things stand, both Liverpool and Chelsea are joint leaders alongside Watford – with four wins from their first four fixtures. Defending champions Manchester City are fourth after dropping two points in their 1-1 draw against Wolverhampton Wanderers.

Tottenham Hotspur are fifth, having lost one of their first four fixtures, while Arsenal and Manchester United currently find themselves in ninth and tenth respectively.

Liverpool have started in a stunning manner, winning four out of four games as we stepped into the international break with a 100% win record. The Reds have scored nine goals and conceded just one in four outings, which makes for pretty impressive reading.

A number of players have started well this season, while some are yet to impress. There seems to be an extra hunger to score goals and although the season has a long way to go, the early signs are promising.

£13.5m Liverpool star explains how he can help the Reds win the Premier League

Published

on

Xherdan Shaqiri believes his experience can prove vital in Liverpool’s pursuit of the Premier League title.

Shaqiri, 26, joined Liverpool from Stoke City for a £13.5m, after the Potters were relegated to the Championship at the end of last season. The 26-year-old spent two-and-a-half years at Bayern Munich and was part of the squad that won two consecutive league and cup doubles.

The nippy forward also won three Swiss league titles with Basel and Shaqiri now wants to add to that trophy haul with the Reds.

“The aim is for the club to win something – that has to be the goal of our team,” Shaqiri told Liverpoolfc.com.

“We have to take every game and try to win it, then close out from your mind the last game you won and think: ‘OK, we go forward now and look to the next game.’ It is like this that you win titles and I hope we are going to do that this year.

“First of all, we want to try to play very good football. But we also know it is not always the case that good football wins, so we need to know how to win games – that’s important – and to be competitive with other teams.

“As a new player I want to show my football. Most of the players know me already from the Premier League and from Bayern and I have a good amount of experience.

“I won many titles with Bayern and I want to try to give this experience to this Liverpool team which is still young and try to help them win something.”

Jurgen Klopp brought in Shaqiri to provide competition to our devastating attacking trio of Mohamed Salah, Roberto Firmino and Sadio Mane, who scored 91 goals between them last season. We have won all four of their Premier League games this term but Shaqiri has been limited to just two cameo appearances so far.

However, the diminutive attacker made a case for his selection as Switzerland crushed Iceland 6-0 in the UEFA Nations League. Despite the Swiss ace’s fine show in national colours, it is tough to see him displace his fellow forwards in Klopp’s first-choice XI.

Not Mane or Salah – Jurgen Klopp speaks out about £10m Liverpool star’s future

Andrew Robertson

Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp paid tribute to Andy Robertson after the left-back led Scotland out at Hampden Park for the first time during the international break.

Robertson, 24, endured a slow start to his Anfield career following his £10m move from Hull City last summer. However, he gradually picked up the tempo and has now made the left-back position his own.

Now integral to both club and country, Klopp has praised the defender for his hunger, desire and leadership abilities. Robertson’s first match as captain was one to forget as Scotland suffered their worst home defeat since 1973, losing 4-0 to Belgium on Friday. But that did not stop our gaffer from heaping praises.

“Andy is a fantastic fella. He is a very smart and nice person. He can be a leader in the future, 100 per cent,” Klopp told Liverpoolfc.com.

“He made big steps in the last one-and-a-half years since we worked together. That’s really cool. He has made big steps in the last four or five years since he started his career. So it’s a nice story.

“He is still young but he is a leader already and he will be even better in that in the future.”

Robertson has enjoyed a remarkable rise over the last few years. After all, he was playing lower league Scottish football for Queen’s Park in 2013 after being rejected by Celtic early on in his career.

The Scotsman is an attacking full-back, whose speed down the left flank is simply thrilling to watch. From getting rejected by Celtic to playing Champions League football for Liverpool, Robertson indeed has come a long way.
