liverpool fc anfield

Liverpool FC and Southampton will clash tomorrow afternoon at Anfield in a Premier League fixture that features two clubs who are very familiar with one another. That’s because of all the transfer business the two sides have done with each other in recent years. Liverpool have bought so many players from the south coast club in recent transfer windows that it’s been a consistent punchline in the football world.

As for the series itself between the two clubs, it’s been good for the Anfield outfit, but not too one-sided. In 38 league meetings, there have been 10 draws, 10 Saints wins and 18 Liverpool victories.

Notre Dame Football Needs Better Offensive Cohesion to be a Real Playoff Contender

Share

It’s entirely possible that this current Notre Dame football team can replicate what they accomplished in 2012- winning with defense, just enough offense, luck, smoke and mirrors. Through three games the #8 Fighting Irish are undefeated, but unimpressive in two of those three victories.

They may be able to keep going along this season with the current status quo, and get to the college football playoff, but that’s far from likely as the schedule will get tougher in October. In order for the Irish to rise to the occasion and become as formidable an opponent as those appearing on their schedule down the line, they need to solve their offensive issues.

Manchester United have won their last three across all competitions, with all three of those contests taking place away from the friendly confines of Old Trafford. Now they return to the theatre of dreams to face a newly promoted, but surprisingly formidable Wolverhampton Wanderers side.

Wolves have only lost once in six matches across all competitions this season, and already have an impressive draw against reigning league champions Manchester City on their resume. Since that result against the Sky Blues, they have won three in a row and kept three clean sheets against Sheffield Wednesday in the League Cup, West Ham and Burnley in the league.

Florida State Seminoles vs NIU Huskies Game Preview, Prediction

Share

The Northern Illinois Huskies have arguably the nation’s toughest non-conference schedule this season, and next up is a trip to Tallahassee to face the Florida State Seminoles. The voyage to Doak Campbell Stadium is one that has been highly anticipated ever since it was announced a couple of years ago, replacing a home date with Idaho on the schedule.

The players and coaching staff will be really amped, as evidenced by the sound bites they gave at NIU Media Day. Most importantly, this game goes above and beyond football, as it’s a money game that saved jobs at NIU

The Northern Illinois Huskies are visiting Tallahassee this weekend to take on the Florida State Seminoles and it’s a trip that’s about much more than football. Yes, it’s an opportunity to face, and hopefully defeat, a traditional college football blue blood, but getting this game on the books has already yielded a major win for Northern Illinois University.

The 2013 Orange Bowl rematch replaces what had been a home date with Idaho on the NIU schedule. It’s also a $1.6 million payday, courtesy of Florida State University. This cash infusion helped save jobs in DeKalb, Illinois, where they were facing a massive budget shortfall. No, the current Seminoles are definitely not living up to the FSU brand, but this is a special game nonetheless.

Liverpool FC are coming off a thrilling 3-2 victory over Paris Saint-Germain in the UEFA Champions League group stages last night. Roberto Firmino scored the game winner in extra time, overcoming an eye injury he suffered last weekend to rise off the bench and provide the fireworks.

He celebrated with a gesture that mocked his eye fitness issue, and the reaction of teammate Mohamed Salah to the scoring strike inspired controversy. Was Salah angry? Did the Egyptian celebrate his team’s glory? Take a look at the video at this link, which gives you a clear answer.

Share

Cristiano Ronaldo, world superstar of footballing superstars, saw his first UEFA Champions League match in a Juventus shirt end early tonight due to his getting sent off. Ronaldo, who drew a red card in the 29′ on a very questionable call against Valencia, will now miss Juve’s next European clash, and could possibly miss the next two after that.

If UEFA does suspend him for the next three European games, he would miss both contests against his former club, Manchester United. Juventus play at Old Trafford on October 23rd, and if Ronaldo is able to feature in that contest, it would be just the second time he’s been on the visitor’s side since leaving the club in 2009.
