Liverpool Watch: Mignolet’s coffee politics, Suarez’s baby and Reina’s long, long goodbye

PA-17244907 (1)

LIVERPOOL Watch: a look at the Reds in the news.

Pepe Reina is back to tell us that his Liverpool career is over. Probably.  Says the affable Spaniard now on loan at Napoli:

“At the moment it’s difficult to think about being a Liverpool player next year. They have a young goalkeeper in Simon Mignolet and the manager prefers him to me. That’s the reason why I’m here and he will be at the club next year as well. There’s no reason to think I’ll be a Liverpool player from now on but we’ll see where the future takes us.”

He then revisits the circumstances of his move to Italy:

“It did come as a surprise. It was the club who made the move. I was on my holidays and nobody told me anything. Suddenly Napoli called and said they were agreeing terms with Liverpool and Liverpool just rang me two days later and said the same. They probably had their own reasons. It’s been a good move so far and I don’t regret what happened. I would have preferred to say goodbye in a different way.”

Liverpool top Premiership tweeting list for January

An iffy start to the season might mean that the Premiership title is beyond Liverpool, but the Red half of Merseyside are at least top of one league – the country’s top footballing tweeters. Barclays has analysed Twitter traffic using Sysomos’ Media Analysis Platform (MAP) to see which teams and which cities were the centre of the Twitter-sphere throughout January, and found that when it comes to expressing themsleves in 140 charactars the Scousers come out top.

There was apparently a million tweets about the Barclays Premier League and its clubs in January with Liverpool FC, the subject of nearly a third of those tweets (301,169). In second place was Arsenal FC (110,901), which is something of a surprise given the club’s lack of transfer activity. Chelsea FC (97,655) and Manchester United (86,249) roll in as third and fourth place.

The Smell Of Victory: The Scent Of Football

SMELL that? That is the smell of Liverpool FC.

L4Men leads with the intense freshness of Robbie Keane and the garlic-infused sparkle of Fernando Torres.

Note the virile blend of frustration and star anise which finishes down with undertones of second-hand tyre and gold top.

This is Liverpool’s attempt to dethrone Beckham as the official smell of football. Right now L4Men is the official scent of the Premier League, but we can expect Liverpool’s rivals to up the stakes and take more vigorous approaches to the challenge of advancing the brand.

Here are some of the other odours that should be wafting through the grounds next season:
