Amazing couple of months :)
Sturridge has been in great form!
Can't wait for more updates after your break!
Just realised that I've commented before, but another comment definitely won't do any harm :) Just wanted to say that I like the amount of detail you have in your story, especially the way you set out the matches, in my opinion it's easier to read :D

Other than that, good luck man! :)

Form will continue

For some, Liverpool's season so far shows the evidence that the premier league title isn't as far away from the clubs grasp as it may seem. In a press conference earlier on this morning, we spoke to Brendan Rodgers to get his take on the teams season so far. He spoke very highly of his players and that of Iago Aspas BUT, what were his thoughts on some saying the Premier League may be a realistic option?;

"It's always nice to get praise. We seem to be the ones gaining the plaudits and rightly so, in my opinion. I think this season we have been superb so far and there is no reason why this form can't continue! I'm confident it will and so are the players. We have to go out into every game believing we can outscore our opponent, and that's what we've been doing. It is the reason for our fine form. We want it more than anyone else."

Brendan obviously has the faith and confidence in his team to win this seasons title, but what were his thought's on some of the individual performances?

"As for individual performances, I think you only need to look at some of our team performances, I'll be honest, we've been bailed out a few times, like against Villa when Iago scored. Being bailed out is obviously not what we want but it does show our commitment and determination to win games. As I said, we want it more than they do. The likes of Iago and Henderson have obviously been second to none, many times. I am proud of them for that, for giving it their all, But this is a team game and I will only be happy when we all pull together as a team. Which has been the case for most games, but if we are to win the league, it must be ALL of the games.

On the slide, but top nonetheless!

Tottenham vs Liverpool

Liverpool, were the team in this game that looked to carry on the fine form but it was Tottenham trying to defy the odds by beating Liverpool, in this game. If the reds were to lose, the top spot could be retained by United, and it'd be their first loss in 2 month (Against Chelsea).

Liverpool, got off to a fine start in the 7th minute with a goal from on form magician Luis Suarez. A free kick on the edge of the box for the reds, and it was obvious who would take it. Luis has a knack for scoring Free kicks in this position, and it was no different this time as he managed to place one right into the bottom corner. The ball looked as if it would rise and rise, but no. the ball dipped so much it almost touched the floor before it was in the net and this was from just 20 yards.

2 minutes later, came another chance for Suarez to show his quality, Jordan Henderson rolled the ball through to the forward and it looked as if a goal was inevitable, however Suarez sliced the ball well wide of the target and the chance went begging.

Not long after, Spurs were awarded a penalty. and who would take it? that's right, Soldado. also known as, Penaldo for obvious reasons. He converted the penalty calmly and the scores were level again. Both teams now had some hard work on their hands.

Jan Vertonghen, one of the best goal getters in his position currently would add his 3rd ever goal against Liverpool 4 minutes from time. Liverpool would be kicking themselves over not holding on till half time and now they had a real job on their hands.

The final goal of the game, sadly wasn't for Liverpool. Dembele in the 67th minute, had his chance to make his mark in the game, a cross from Eriksen would be the cross to spark the Spurs celebrations as Dembele latched onto it with his head and nessled the ball in the top corner.

Player of the month & Monthly Review

Another fine month! sadly we were beaten twice, and drew...but we won just as much as we dropped points which is ok, after all, we stay top for a few more days. The draw against United was disappointing as I thought the penalty decision was a bit controversial, but these things happen against a team like United. The team worked very hard and worked well together, but in some games not hard enough, the Tottenham game for instance. I am not sure how we dropped points at Newcastle, we were brilliant. Our defense once again was very leaky and I can't wait to bulk it up in Jan. I have 2 signings on my mind...I think they will help for a title push, definitely.

Anyway, player of the month is Suarez. What can I say? His goal scoring form was fantastic this month. His Hat-trick against Fulham was just class, and he is really showing his quality.

Yet Suarez failed to find the net v Norwich. I'd return your game, it's broken! :P
P-KIDDY: And I didn't even! I'll be having words with lad!;)
Not the greatest of months, but still great nevertheless. Enjoying this Aaron, keep up the good work!
Some decent results there, shame about the loss to Spurs #YidArmy ;)
A little bit of a letdown but still a decent month. The second half will be yours.
TK: Cheers, TK! I appreciate that:) Will keep it up.

Nick: T'was a shame...For us Liverpool fans anyway;)

Bayern: Let's hope so Bayern, I will look to strengthen my midfield and defense in the winter transfer window!:)
A decent month but I would expect better from you (and Suarez) :P
Hopefully next month you can get back to top form!

New company, brings competition

Just one day into the January transfer window, and Liverpool Football Club have already announced their first 3 signings of 2014. Their first of the signings is a little closer to home with in-form striker Luis Suarez signing a new long term contract with the club, which could keep him with the reds for the next 6 years. If it's money he want's then it is money he has gotten. As of now, the 26 year old will now earn 80K a week. Obviously not as much as the likes of Rooney and Aguero, but certainly enough.

Luis Suarez has played the best part of his footballing career at Liverpool for four and a half years, signing on for a fee of 22.5 million pounds in the 2010-11 season, scoring 49 goals...just one off the 50 mark.

The next signing arrives from the depths of North London. Danny Rose, former Spurs left back, will now play his football at Anfield for at least 3 years, he is expected to act as back up for first team left back Jose Enrique, but nothing can be confirmed yet as to whether he will be a regular starter or simply back up for the time being. He joins for 7.25 million pounds.

He has made only 4 appearances for Spurs this season, which he will no doubt find an abysmal decision to play him as back up, given Tottenham's current situation in that part of the field.

Liverpool's third and final signing so far, is a 22 year old and very talented French central midfielder...Can you guess? No? Clement Grenier! Maybe this signing may come as a surprise to the Liverpool fans as the Frenchman has had absolutely no link to Liverpool this season, or even last season for that matter. This has turned out to be a very Assaidi-esque signing.

Unlike Danny Rose, Clement Grenier is expected to be thrown right into the first team against York on Saturday, in the FA cup 3rd round, it is also thought that, in the long run...This signing could be the answer to Liverpool's 'next Gerrard' problem. Lets all hope! There is nothing more that I personally would like than for Liverpool to find a new young central midfielder in the form of the 33 year old inspiration.

Although signing two new players on the first day of the window, we at BTSport do not believe Rodgers will end here with the signings, earlier on the manager himself said this; "These two new signings will definitely add more competition to the team and also more depth, with these signings, we will have more options when in need of a good rotation and I think it will challenge our current players to step up in the second half of the season. The sigings will be a HUGE boost, however not as big a boost as Suarez will have on the lads, as I can reveal he will be signing a new 5 year contract."

We aren't exactly certain who Rodgers' further targets for the January are, but we believe that among those targets are two young and talented players in the form of; Winger, Mohammed Salah and Central midfielder, Will Hughes.

Stay tuned, more coming up on BTSport.
Nice signings :)
Also, well done on getting Suarez tied down to a longer contract!
Very good signings!
Damn Grenier is going to kill it for you. Nice job
