Monday Scan for Injured Mamadou Sakho

"I would prefer to lose 4-1 and keep him in the team" sort of makes me want to cry and I’m not even saying that in the "omg i’m crying" internet-type way. what a warm sentiment to express.

edit: also this sucks big time

Liverpool Could Have Landed Ancelotti According to Ancelotti

Farce of Nature: It will be an interesting contest between the styles of world-class managers in a few years: Mourinho, Klopp, Ancelotti, and Guardiola pitted against each other in the same league. It will be exciting.

Balotelli's Mohawk: I don't know. I don’t expect Klopp, Ancelotti, or Guardiola to be managing in the Championship any time in the next few years…

Lesson Time With Professor Klopp

The rhetoric he espouses is seriously powerful. There’s a casual element to him, affable, exuberant; then he starts speaking and becomes undeniable. The repetition of phrase, the use of inclusive plural as a way of building a common bond, the blunt honesty in phrasing and delivery. He is basically delivering a sermon on football, preaching to his players and supporters to believe in themselves and the team.
Testify, Jürgen. Testify.

Injured Sakho Withdraws From France Squad

Now hold on a minute

You may THINK this was a case of a player being injured in the run of play during a club match, but let’s take a closer look, shall we?
Who do France play in a friendly? England.
Who manages England? Woy.
What does Woy do? Break Liverpool players.
Who does Sakho play for? France AND Liverpool.

So, to recap, Sahko knew he was going to get injured playing against England, and decided to take matters into his own hands (or legs in this case) and get injured earlier as to speed up his return date.

Liverpool Could Have Landed Ancelotti According to Ancelotti

think we’ve touched on it before where the pull for a manager is a lot different than the pull for a player. resurrecting Liverpool at a point where the finances are sorted, the ownership is stable, the squad is young and talented, money is increasing the parity in the league, History™, and the stadium redevelopment is underway: its a pretty damn sexy job. its the sorta job that appeals to medium-long term goals that are in line with a manager wanting to make his mark.

a playing career is just too short and volatile and success is too dependent on other variables to just be down to roll the dice on yer prime.
