premier league trophy

In as selfish a move as an organization has made in recent times, the Premier League is willing to risk the health of their players, staff and fans in a attempt to avoid TV contract rebates of up to £762 MILLION.

The Premier League are reportedly working on aa plan to restart the season behind closed doors on the first weekend of May with a scheduled finish date of Sunday July 12.

The proposals, which will be discussed in detail on a conference call of the 20 clubs on Friday, would need to be approved by the Government, public health bodies and the PFA.

Liverpool World Champions

The research group CIES Football Observatory have just released its most valuable squads in the transfer market from Europe’s top-five leagues, and it is the current European and World Champions who now sit top the pile.

The Liverpool squad is now worth a whopping €1.4 billion (£1.27 billion), which puts them ahead of every other club on the continent. Second is Premier League rival Manchester City at €1.36b.

Spanish giants Barcelona (€1.17b) and Real Madrid (€1.1b) are third and fourth respectively, with Chelsea shockingly in fifth place (€1.08b) despite having been banned from signing players in last summer’s transfer window.

Bad Loser Klopp Hits Out At Atletico After Defeat

Champions League Trophy

Jurgen Klopp believes Atletico Madrid should play “proper football” instead of relying on counterattacks after they eliminated his Liverpool team from the Champions League on Wednesday.

Diego Simeone’s team beat the Reds 3-2 after extra time in the second leg of their last-16 tie at Anfield, sending the defending European champions crashing out of the competition.

Georginio Wijnaldum’s first half strike took the game into extra time and Roberto Firmino put the European champions in the driving seat just four minutes in.

But Atletico recovered thanks to a Marcos Llorente double and a late goal from Alvaro Morata to make it 4-2 on aggregate.

Klopp Under Pressure As Liverpool Season Hits Bump

Jurgen Klopp was forced to defend his team-selection on Tuesday night as Liverpool’s dream of a historic Treble was dashed by Chelsea.

Adrian’s calamitous error gifted Willian the opener before Ross Barkley’s marvellous solo effort booked Frank Lampard side’s place in the FA Cup quarter-finals.

Klopp made seven changes from the side that lost to Watford on Saturday – and included youngsters Neco Williams and Curtis Jones in his starting XI as well as fringe players Adrian, Adam Lallana and Takumi Minamino.

We made seven changes because we knew it would be intense. We made the changes because there would be a lot of sprints because of how Chelsea play in midfield,’ he said.

Jurgen Klopp Left Surprised By Watford Defeat

Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp admits his side weren’t good enough as they were swept aside 3-0 by Watford at Vicarage Road.

The Reds failed to create any chances in the first 45 minutes and were completely outplayed by Watford after the interval.

Ismaila Sarr netted twice in the second-half, before Troy Deeney sealed the win in the closing stages.

Liverpool remain 22 points clear at the top of the Premier League and are heading for their first top flight title in 30 years.

But the club’s unbeaten run this term is over- and Klopp admits his side weren’t at the races throughout the tie.

Liverpool Unbeaten Streak Ends At Watford

Liverpool’s hopes of remaining unbeaten for an entire Premier League season were ended in sensational style by a rampant Watford at Vicarage Road.

Ismaila Sarr scored twice while captain Troy Deeney added a third in a sparkling second-half display from the hosts as Liverpool’s run of victories was brought to a shuddering halt.

The Reds had won their past 18 Premier League games and another at Vicarage Road would have made history as the longest winning run in the English top flight.

But they never got going against a Watford side who were superb from start to finish.

Liverpool Seeing Success Off Pitch Too

Liverpool made a pre-tax profit of £42million last year despite a record £223m investment on players.

While that top line is well below the record £125m profit for the year ending May 2018, the rewards are being felt on the pitch with the club four victories away from winning their first league title in 30 years.

Figures released on Thursday for the financial year to May 31, 2019 incorporate the purchases of Alisson Becker (£65million), Naby Keita (£52.75m), Fabinho (£43.7m) and Xherdan Shaqiri (£13m).

Liverpool Make It 18 Straight Premier League Wins

Jurgen Klopp hailed Liverpool’s history making side as their latest win took them into the record books – and put one hand on the Premier League.

A dramatic second half comeback enabled Liverpool to turn a 2-1 deficit against West Ham into a 3-2 victory.

They now need 12 points from 11 games to become champions, having won 26 of their 27 Premier League fixtures.

The triumph ensured they equalled Manchester City’s all-time record of 18 consecutive top flight wins (from 2017-18) and it also meant Liverpool matched their own all-time record of 21 straight victories at home, set between January and December 1972.

Klopp Warns Atletico Of Intimidating Anfield

Jurgen Klopp has warned Atletico Madrid that Anfield will be as intimidating as the Wanda Metropolitano when Liverpool look to overturn a 1-0 loss from the Champions League last-16 first leg.

Saul Niguez’s fourth-minute strike was enough to give the Spanish side the advantage over the defending champions.

Madrid’s stadium was raucous on Tuesday with fans orchestrated by energetic Atletico manager Diego Simeone.

“Atletico fans who can a get ticket… ‘welcome to Anfield’,” said Klopp.

Could Man City Be Stripped Of 2014 Premier League Title?

Manchester City’s top-flight triumph in 2014 could be chalked off if a Premier League investigation finds financial wrongdoing by the club, according to a report.

An investigation by UEFA’s Club Financial Control Body (CFCB) has already led to City being banned from European competition for the next two seasons, after the club allegedly overstated its sponsorship revenue.

City are set to take the case to the Court of Arbitration for Sport after releasing a statement saying they were “disappointed but not surprised” by the ruling.
