Super Eagles player Joe Aribo continued his good form in the pre-season for Glasgow Rangers as he netted in their 2 – 0 win over Coventry City on Saturday.

 

Aribo who was also on target for the club in the last game against Motherwell last week gave his side the lead five minutes into the second half.

 

Aribo picked the ball up and plays a one-two with Morelos before showing great composure inside the box to calmly find the bottom corner to make  1-0 at Ibrox Stadium.

 

Connor Goldson doubled Rangers lead heading in a great delivery from James Tavernier, seven minutes after an hour mark.

 

Aribo later was later replaced in the 81st minutes of the game, meanwhile, his compatriot Leon Balogun was excluded from the match.

Get ready for a dry summer.

It’s! Transfer! Season!

Or is it?

Look, we know the score by now. Liverpool have no money because FSG are keeping things tight during Covid. We’re not saying nothing will happen, but we are saying not a lot will happen. Thus we have Jürgen Klopp talking about the challenges of squad building. Anyway, we won the league.

“We build a squad in which everybody feels they are needed”, the Liverpool manager explained to the Echo. That means we can sometimes be a little bit short in an ‘A’ solution, but we always have a solution. As long as we have that, we have to work with that.

“For a club like us, it’s not possible to have on the bench 20 world-class players. We have to perform on a world-class level and that’s possible in different line-ups. Our players have all the potential to be world class but sometimes they don’t play often enough to show that.

“Squad building is really tricky and is a big challenge every year. The answer is never to have more players than you need, actually. That’s not the answer. It feels comfortable for a moment and then you have over the whole year completely different problems.

“It’s difficult to decide exactly what’s the right number and what are the right alternatives, but that’s the job to do. So far we have done it quite okay, and hopefully we will stay like this.”

One of the reasons Liverpool can afford to run a smaller squad is the work of the support staff, as Klopp went on to argue. “We have a department that helps the fit guys stay even fitter, like nutrition with Mona Nemmer, the fitness department with Andy Kornmayer and of course the medical department. They have all done an incredible job.

“Fitness, and particular nutrition, during the lockdown, they helped keep the boys fit and healthy and that was really important.

“The medical department are tireless workers, and keep bringing the boys on the pitch again week in, week out, and sometimes every three days. That’s absolutely exceptional.

“We are really happy with the way we dealt with an extremely difficult situation – all the teams had the same situation. We dealt really well with it. I’m massively thankful for that.”

Well, Liverpool aren’t signing a lot of players and that’s what’s happening. Frankly, we won the league, so I don’t care.

NEWCASTLE UNITED VS LIVERPOOL

| Sunday, July 26th |Premier League | St. James Park5:30PM BST/12:30PM EST

Liverpool have won the Premier League. Liverpool have received their trophy for winning the Premier League. Now, they close out the season against Newcastle.

To be honest, there’s really not much in it beyond pride. A chance for the Reds to cap things off with a win before taking a short break and going again. For the Magpies, meanwhile, a win assures them of finishing 13th while a loss could see them slip to 14th. So. Not a lot to play for. But it’s Liverpool football. One last time this strange, historic season.

The Leicester attacker is reportedly seen as alternate option to Adama Traore and Ismaïla Sarr

While most of the focus is on the final game of the season today, the Premier League transfer window officially opens tomorrow, July 26. After Liverpool walked away from the Timo Werner transfer, the signs seemed to point towards no major signings this summer.

Instead, most of the rumors seemed to point towards younger players who would spend a couple years as occasional rotational pieces before stepping into a regular starting role. To this point, most of the chatter has focused on wide attackers to provide depth for Mohamed Salah and Sadio Mané. The names of Adama Traore from Wolves and Ismaïla Sarr from relegation threatened Watford have been swirling around.

Now, the Mirror have linked Liverpool with a move for Leicester’s Harvey Barnes. The young attacker has been a revelation for the Foxes this season, earning a regular starting role on the left side of the field. The 22 year old has scored six goals and provided eight assists in the league. Tactically, he could play as the left forward or in the midfield.

Of course, the Mirror provides this report with no quotes from agents, management, players, club-connected journalists, ball boys, tea ladies, or, well, anyone. Rather, the Mirror seem to draw their conclusions from the fact that Barnes would fit the Liverpool transfer strategy of buying younger players with positional flexibility on the verge of breaking out.

Leicester will be playing in Europe next season, whether Champions League or Europa League to be determined today against Manchester United. The Foxes have built themselves into a solid financial position (pre-pandemic at least), and will likely put a hefty price tag on Barnes for anyone interested.

Until there is someone connected with the player or either club talking about this transfer, we’re going to classify this as pure, unadultered speculation from the Mirror (and all of the other papers who have basically ripped the description from the Mirror word for word).
