Lovren Fails to Secure Visa, Will Not Join Liverpool on Tour

Bobby Ballentino : No visa for Lovren and I’m hearing Agger may have agreed terms with Barca, change is good but love that dude sad day if its true.

Mr. Snrub: Agger uses American Express, and hopefully he won’t…leave home without it! /also leaves

saintgrobian: And Suarez left because he uses Diners Club. /wait for me!

Redknapp Insists "Fit Lad" Remy Could Not Have Failed Medical

In other news...
Harry Redknapp clarified that the Sun does indeed circle the Earth.

“I have been watching the large yellow thing for years now. It goes from one side of my yard to the other and back around again,” Redknapp commented. “I don’t know what these ‘scientists’ are trying to sell to people, but I have seen it move and can confidentially report that it keeps going around. If they say otherwise, they must have other reasons. I for one will welcome it back when it circles around tomorrow.”

Lovren Squad Number Confirmed... But is it the Right Number?

Seems like Liverpool's in-house numerologist has done well
2 is the most glentle number. 5 is the most dynamic of all the numbers in aggeregate. 6 is the most lovren number. 9 chooses to not be a dick.

Official: Liverpool Complete Divock Origi Signing

So far this summer we’ve managed to sign two players who had complicated contracts/ownership issues (Can and Markovic), sign three players from one club who most likely would have not wanted to sell them (Lambert, Lallana, and Lovren), and a player who probably got more than his fair amount of attention following the World Cup (Origi). We have failed to sign Sanchez (wanted to live in London) and Remy (failed medical/who knows what else), while Moreno and the RB from Madrid are still possibilities. We also got the full amount of the buyout clause for Suarez, despite him having bit someone for the third time and subsequently being banned for four months.

If it stays like this, not a bad job by Ayre and Co. If we sign Moreno, a RB, and another striker a really good job from them.

Agger Allegedly Flies Home Due to Injury, Barcelona Coincidentally Make Bid

Dagger will be good enough for this level until the day he retires, even if that means he’s a shell of himself like carras final two seasons.

Rodgers: "It's Fairly Simple"

This season will likely be the toughest for Rodgers.

Fan expectations need to be held in check. Challenging for a top 4 spot should be the realistic target with a hope that the squad will gel in a similar fashion to last season to possibly produce a title run. But given the improvements of all the top teams already this transfer window there will absolutely be 2 VERY GOOD teams that finish 5th and 6th. Just look at the quality of managers in the EPL now compared to 2 years ago, it’s a significant difference. Rodgers has improved, as has Martinez. Pellegrini and Van Gaal are terrific, and obviously Mourinho has returned.

I have enjoyed supporting Liverpool through thick-and-thin, especially seeing the fans support the club’s managers over the years. Liverpool could very easily have a tough start to the season if it takes a few games for Rodgers and the players to figure out how to break teams down without Suarez. The one thing is that we know Rodgers will have the team organized with a modern philosophy and that he will need the confidence and support of the fans to sing and cheer to encourage the players to take the risks and reap the rewards in place of the swashbuckling Suarez.

For the neutral (and I know a lot of them, here in the USA), Liverpool were easily the most watchable team last season. Pleasing style of play, with quite a few spectacular goals and late finishes. That’s where my bar stands for this season… for Liverpool to retain the title of best team to watch. If they can do that in both the EPL and CL, I expect the Rodgers revolution to continue.

So yeah, it’s fairly simple.
