Liverpool Ladies support FA Girls’ Football Week


Liverpool Ladies showed their support for the FA’s Girls’ Football Week by visiting several schools in the North West alongside the LFC Foundation to promote the women’s game locally.

Despite a hectic schedule featuring two WSL home games during the past week, several members of Scott Rogers’ squad visited schools to join in with coaching, as well as participating in Q&A sessions and handing out free tickets for last Wednesday’s clash with Chelsea.

A number of the youngsters involved in Girls’ Football Week were also invited onto the pitch at half-time during the narrow 2-1 defeat by the Londoners.

The week began with defender Shannon Beckwith assisting the Reds’ official charity with coaching and also paying a visit to Broadgreen High School, while England international Siobhan Chamberlain went to see Lymm Rovers Juniors in Cheshire.

How a Swansea game in 2012 started it all for Danny Ward

Danny Ward

Chris Shaw

With a second Liverpool start expected to come his way at Swansea City this weekend, Danny Ward wants to build further upon a foundation that was laid in a game against the Welsh side in 2012.

The goalkeeper is ‘likely’ to be between the posts for the Reds at the Liberty Stadium tomorrow according to Jürgen Klopp, who handed the 22-year-old a senior debut in the win over Bournemouth a fortnight ago.

It was a long wait to feature in the starting XI for the down-to-earth Ward, whose very first experience of being in the squad came as a substitute for a League Cup meeting with Swansea at Anfield three-and-a-half years ago.

His personal assessment of that impressive opening outing on the south coast is a modest one, with the Wales international primarily focused on increasing his appearance tally and cementing his status under Klopp.

Klopp explains the latest on Jon Flanagan’s fitness

Glenn Price

Jürgen Klopp has provided an update on the fitness of Jon Flanagan and explained how the defender needs to build up his ‘physical resistance’ in order to get back onto the pitch regularly.

The 23-year-old last made a first-team appearance in March when he captained the side in the defeat away at Southampton.

However, the full-back did feature for 45 minutes in the U21s’ win over Norwich City at the Academy on Monday afternoon.

Flanagan made his comeback to the senior side in January, after spending 619 days on the sidelines due to long-term injury.

Kane and Phillips on the mark as U18s draw at Chelsea


29th April 2016

Steve Hunter

Liverpool U18s finished their Academy season with a point after an entertaining 2-2 draw away to FA Youth Cup winners Chelsea at Aldershot Town FC on Friday night.

Neil Critchley’s side were outstanding but they were denied victory as Blues stopper Nathan Baxter made a series of fantastic saves.

The young Reds started brightly and took the lead after 14 minutes. A great pass from Mich’el Parker released Ben Woodburn in space down the left. The striker found Adam Phillips, who in turn fed Herbie Kane to finish well with a low shot.

The home side drew level four minutes later courtesy of a set-piece. Miro Muheim’s delivery was met by Igo Ugbo, who was left unmarked to head beyond the reach of Caoimhin Kelleher.

The boss on the defence, confidence levels and changes

Jurgen Klopp

29th April 2016

Glenn Price

Just 10 hours after returning from Spain, Jürgen Klopp was back at Melwood to hold a press conference for reporters and preview Sunday’s Barclays Premier League visit to Swansea City – read on to see what the manager had to say…

On whether the Villarreal result affects his selection for the weekend…

That didn’t change, to be honest. We have to respect the intensity of the last game and we have to think about the line-up for Sunday. It is not about next Thursday, because if you think now about next Thursday then you have no chance on Sunday – that’s how it is. We have to, as we always did, respect the Premier League. But of course, we need to have a look on the players. Yesterday we came home [at] half three [in the morning] and I’m pretty sure no-one slept immediately when they came home. It’s intense, it’s busy, so I will see them in one or two hours and make decisions about the line-up.

On his side dropping points from winning positions and whether strengthening defence is his priority…

It’s always in football like this. When you build up a team, you start with the defence – that’s how it is. It keeps you in the game and gives you the opportunity to score once and win the game. Yes for sure, it will be. But not only speaking to the defenders or something like this. We had different problems in this and we solved a lot of them already. Set-pieces were the worst, to be honest, because it’s nothing about the game, it’s a part of the game where we needed to improve and we did. Then we conceded a few other goals, so I’m never happy with conceding goals, to be honest. It’s clear, it’s how we build up a team and that’s one of the biggest targets for the next season. Not for the rest of this season, but for next season and then to build up a stability in this part of the game.
