Trouble At Liverpool?

Hero: Luis Suarez Celebrates Another Goal, But How Long Will He Stay?

There is cause for speculation at Anfield today, with reports suggesting that key striker Luis Suarez is unhappy at the club, and his lack of first team football. The Uruguyan has seen his place in the squad claimed by new signings such as Kevin Volland, and has made only 9 league appearances this season, scoring 3 goals.

By contrast, fellow striker Kevin Volland has made 17 appearances, but scored only 2 goals, while Daniel Sturridge has a record of 5 in 8. Summer Signging Kevin De Bruyne has scored 4 goals in 13 appearances, as Hamann continues to rotate his strikeforce, presumably to keep his opponents guessing.

But Suarez is firmly of the opnion he should be the first name on the teamsheet: "I think my record in past seasons speaks for itself; since I arrived here, I have made 152 appearances in league games, and scored around 70 goals. Not getting to play this season is something I really struggle to see the sense in."

Despite his protestations, Suarez is lagging behind the likes of Sturridge and De Bruyne in the goalscoring stakes for the league, and young welshman Harry Wilson, and left back Domenico Criscito are level with him in terms of goals scored. With Wilson having provided 4 assists and 2 goals in his 4 league appearances this term, the argument is strong for him keeping Suarez out of the side, with Hamann only using a maximum of two attacking midfielders at any one time this season.

Manager Hamann is said to be disappointed that Suarez has spoken directly to the media, rather than voicing his concerns to his manager, but no official statement has been made on the player's future as yet.
I love the updates and I will definately be following, harry wilson seems a awesome player
cheers mate! yeah, he's been doing well for us :)

Liverpool and Hamann Part Ways
Liverpool have today released a statement detailing that, after an unsatisfactory period of league performances, they have met with Didi Hamann, and both parties have agreed to go their different was.
Despite a Champions League win, followed by Wins in the European Supercup and Club World Championship, Hamann's Liverpool side are currently sitting in 9th place in the league, and fans are said to be split on whether or not he was given enough time.
That sucks that you've been sacked :( . Hopefully you'll get a new job soon!
ouch unlucky but hammann is good and will find a job soon

Hamann Finds New Role At Roma

Following his departure from Liverpool after two and a half seasons, German Didi Hamann has wasted no time in finding a new role; as manager of Italian side AS Roma. Speaking on Italian TV, Hamann was of the view that, despite a poor 3rd season at Liverpool, the fresh challenge of managing in Italy will be exactly what he needs to move on with his management career.

In terms of his squad, Hamann has some great talent at his disposal, as he replaces Arsene Wenger, who had expressed interest in Liverpool's now vacant managerial position. Players such as Ryan Gauld and Luke Shaw have been demoted to the Under 21s, and it would not be surprising to see at least loan bids for these players in the near future.

Hamann was well-known in English football for his talent at bringing young players through the ranks, and several of his former charges have been quoted as saying that his leaving is enough to make them question their own futures at Liverpool, including fan favourite Harry Wilson, and fellow winger Sergi Canos.

However, there have been no formal bids made, and any transfer news surrounding Roma is, for now, speculation.
You weren't unemployed for too long, then! Hopefully you'll do really well with Roma!

Canos in Roma Switch
Liverpool's Spanish starlet Sergi Canos has left the club after Roma signed him on a pre-contract agreement. Appreciating that he would not be getting any gametime this season, Canos is said to have begged Wenger to let him leave, and joined up with former manager Hamann in Rome this week, looking set to make his debut against Modena.

Canos started his career at Barcelona, before moving to Liverpool in 2013. He didn't make a first team appearance for the Reds, but spent 2 seasons on loan at Oldham and Brentford, making 62 appearances and netting 3 goals.

He has been compared to former Spain star Fran, and boasts some good technique and speed, although some critics have stated that his passing and dribbling often leave a bit to be desired. He has already expressed his positivity, and the newfound determination that this move has brought him is sure to channel itself into performances on the pitch.

Rumour has it that he is working closely with club stars to improve his game and his attitude, and it will be interesting to follow his development.
So you're bringing Liverpool to Roma now, eh? :P
not quite :P

End of An Era

Really sorry guys, but i'm wrapping this up...basically, i've gone rushing on ahead, and i'm now too far to be able to go back and update...I'd like to thank everyone who's read, commented, laughed and followed this story for your support
I'll be back soon with a new one, of course, and if anyone's curious, I finished 5th with Roma, and improvement of 3 places on where Wenger had them; but It just wasnt the same without Harry Wilson, Jordan Rosstier et al!
