Aspas Nets First Goal In FA Cup Win

Image
What should have been a straight forward FA Cup tie for Liverpool on Sunday at stages looked tenuous as the Reds struggled to stamp their authority on the game with a weakened XI. A goal from Iago Aspas in the second half settled what could have been a nervy fixture and an own goal from James Tarkowski late on ensured Liverpool's progress to the next round where they will face either Burton Albion or Bournemouth.

Oldham under their young manager Lee Johnson began the game in a very positive fashion, at times it was easy to question which side was the Premier League outfit. Whilst Liverpool could perhaps note the excuse that their side was weakened it wasn't really acceptable, the side on the pitch should have been performing much better.

In the first half for the Reds it was Luis Alberto who had the best of the chances for the home side, one shot taken perfectly, unfortunately flew wide of the post and Liverpool were forced to continue to withstand some Oldham pressure in the…

It was an easy win for the Reds who had goals from new signings Luis Alberto and Iago Aspas whilst Raheem Sterling and Martin Kelly also joined the score sheet. The first goal conceded in their pre-season also appeared in this game for Liverpool as Gonzalez found the back of the net for…

Transfers For LFC So Far...

I'm sure you've all been keeping an eye on that transfer window so far this summer and hasn't it been interesting? Usually as a Liverpool fan you end up sitting around bored at this stage of the season until some relatively unknown youngster forces the L4 transfer window open and we finally see a bit of action. It's different this year though, there's been a hell of a lot of talk and a decent amount of action and below is a round up of the ins and outs at Liverpool Football Club so far...

First in for manager Brendan Rodgers was the out of contract Kolo Toure. After finishing up with Manchester City the 32 year old seemed keen to continue his career at a top level and whilst some people have been having digs at the signing I think for a free transfer Brendan's done a savvy deal there. With the missing experience of Jamie Carragher, Toure even if he doesn't play week in, week out will bring some wisdom to the dressing room, an invaluable asset in my eyes…
