Podolski Scores In Arsenal Win

Liverpool lined up against Arsenal on Sunday with their two front men Fabio Borini and Luis Suarez, after the loaning out of Carroll on deadline day, these two men have the weight of the world on their shoulders as they are Liverpool's front line until January and they need to score goals.

Arsenal on the other hand had plenty of attacking options and the big man Podolski was up front. Unlike ourselves, Arsenal still had options after losing one of their strikers and van Persie was a hell of a lot more influential for them.

The first half for Liverpool began very unsteadily. For a side that is apparently aiming to be so possession focused we only had Joe Allen to show for it. Steven Gerrard as noticed by a few people has been a bit sloppy with his passing a few times already this season and unfortunately Sunday was no different.

A couple of half chances for the Reds were nothing really to shout about and soon enough Arsenal took their opportunity to break. Steven Gerrard's mis…

Gerrard - Different Class

Gerrard celebrates with Lucas after completing his hat trick...
Just as it seemed the cards were down for Liverpool, just when Napoli had capitalised on early strength, the boys in Red thought all hope was lost. But a certain number 8 had a totally different plan of action and when brought on by Roy Hodgson for the second half, Liverpool's game was lifted.
Hodgson fielded another youthful side with the likes of Spearing and Shelvey appearing. Ngog was up front and it was an experienced choice of defence in front of Pepe Reina.
The first half for Liverpool despite its moments was perhaps one to forget. Some half chances from Kyrgiakos and Meireles were our only real threats on the Napoli goal. The Italians however were gaining a hold of the game, Lavezzi was looking stronger and stronger and Hamsik was again causing problems in and around the penalty box.
Lavezzi pounced on his good start just before the half hour mark sending Napoli 1-0 up. A lovely headed ball through to Lavezzi allo…

Takeover: Status - Complete

Welcome to Liverpool FC...
Despite another desperate attempt this morning from Tom Hicks to keep a hold on Liverpool FC, thankfully this evening New England Sports Ventures made the announcement and they are now the new owners of Liverpool FC.
In a deal believed to be worth £300million this will mean that debts owed to Royal Bank Of Scotland can now be paid off and the threat of administration and the docking of 9 points is now gone.
NESV headed by John W Henry (@John_W_Henry) should be thanked for their patience in this very long and testing week for the future of our club. The fact that he and his colleagues didn't walk away speaks leaps and bounds and his comments after the statement show good signs.
Of course Liverpool fans are extremely happy to see the back of Tom Hicks and George Gillett who for three years had a strangle hold on England's most successful football club. At the same time, fans are cautiously optimistic about our new owners. I think it's important that we…
