    The Making of Markovic?

    by Chris Rowland. That’s what Serbia’s caretaker coach Ljubinko Drulovic believes. He says Markovic’s transfer to Liverpool can help him become one of Europe’s elite players: “Going to a very strong league will help him even more to become a major player worldwide. “He’s 20 years old and has a long time to play.

    By Chris Rowland. The final preview has the cliched, fabled Group of Death (though England’s is pretty tough) of Germany, Portugal, Ghana (let’s see if anyone can mention them without mentioning Suarez’s handball. Just a note to all of them who do – it wasn’t Suarez who missed the resultant penalty, it was Asamoah Gyan) and [...]

    By Chris Rowland. Along with Group C, Group E may offer the least interest to neutral observers, ie anyone who’s not French, Swiss or England’s last two friendly opponents, Ecuadorean or Honduran, though Liverpool are represented by France’s Sakho. But that doesn’t preclude the possibility of some good games or great goals. That’s the wonder [...]

I don’t think it would be too harsh to suggest Group C may not get the sap rising, but with England, Italy and Uruguay pitted against each other, Group D could be a little tasty. Or an utterly sterile series of safety-first draws. It may be interesting [...]

The massive spending by the Government on new stadia and infrastructure has drawn massive public demonstrations and disturbances and angry clashes with the police. There may be more when the event actually begins. Meanwhile there have [...]

    By Chris Rowland. There are many significant dates in Liverpool FC’s history. 1892. May 25th – 1977 and 2005. Oct 13th 2010 – the date Hicks and Gillett were ousted in court, with Lord Grabiner QC and Justice Floyd both playing a blinder. Let me add another, maybe the most significant of them all – [...]
