Reds ‘reconsider’ Super League stance & CB plans latest – Liverpool FC Roundup

Liverpool and the Super League – that’s the story of the week and that’s where 90% of the headlines are on Tuesday…along with the usual couple of transfer rumours, of course.


Reds “reconsider” ESL stance

According to a current poll running on TIA Twitter – vote here if you haven’t! – this should make about 70% of you happy. Or slightly happier, anyway.

Reports out of Germany say the Reds are growing “increasingly doubtful” about pursuing the Super League plans as they are, given the (somehow) “unexpected” wave of anger they are facing.

Apparently they are reconsidering their commitment to the proposals as a result.

Good to see they have their finger on the pulse then – how could they possibly not have foreseen the backlash which has emanated from this?

Truth or not to the reports, this will clearly run for some time yet.


CB almost joined…another still wants to

Remember the good old days of the January transfer window when all we needed to do was sift through 25 centre-backs at the last minute to plug the gaping holes in our defence? Good times.

Updates from two of those: Firstly, Duje Caleta-Car wants to leave Marseille and is hoping the Reds return for his services in summer.

Le10 Sport say he’s among the names who will be sold to raise funds for new boss Jorge Sampaoli, if a decent offer is forthcoming.

Meanwhile, Braga president Antonio Salvador says David Carmo almost joined the Reds in the winter window.

The Portuguese youngster had “a foot and a half at Liverpool” but Braga eventually found a way to keep him – though he has since suffered a terrible ankle injury which leaves him out for the season.


All the Super League stuff…

Let’s start with our lads. Our captain and our manager are predictably playing central roles in the response.

If you can stomach it, the London Super Blues play Brighton at 8pm. Otherwise, Norwich face Watford at six – they should both be back up in the top flight next season.
