Liverpool could go back for Dnipro winger in summer

Liverpool may have missed out on Yevhen Konoplyanka but that hasn’t put off Brendan Rodgers from thinking about a summer move for the Dnipro winger, according to one of today’s tabloids.

We’ve also got the latest on the future of Newcastle striker Papiss Cisse and of course the build-up to tonight’s big clash between Manchester City and Chelsea. Just click here for more.


Nike misspells Papiss Cisse’s name on pair of custom cleats


Concerns about Newcastle’s new sponsor set aside, forward Papiss Cisse is back with the club and ready to hit the ground running, right? Well, not exactly.

Continuing a trend that first became apparent with an extra ‘W’ stitched onto the jersey of the United States’ Chris Wondolowski, and which was followed by an Everton goof during an official jersey unveiling, Papiss Cisse became the most recent victim of a summer of spelling mistakes this week.

Setting out for one of his first training sessions since rejoining the club, Cisse reached for a pair of personalized cleats from Nike when he noticed a slight error: the company had misspelled his last name!

In a world where Wikipedia is always only a few seconds away, you think someone would have double checked.

With the 2012-13 Premier League season coming to a close, we review the top ten goals that made our heads swirl through the season.

In reality, there were too many to count this past season. Though we had to leave some out the list, strikes like Robin van Persie’s beauty to seal Manchester United’s Premier League title against Aston Villa or Gareth Bale’s magical strike versus West Ham come to mind.

OK, so we’ll stop and let you relive the best goals for yourself.


We’re entering our last week of February, and that means only one thing: More Goal of the Month nominees! Earlier today we gave you Papiss Cisse’s stunning goal against Southampton. Here are the rest of the nominees!


Newcastle striker Papiss Cisse wowed us last year with that beautiful volley against Chelsea, a goal many said was the season’s best.

Today, Cisse was up to his old tricks and scored a wonderful goal against Southampton: a thunderous dipping volley off one bounce, about 30 yards away. Now that’s certainly the goal of the weekend (with apologies to Rafael) and a Goal of the Month Nominee! #GOMonFOX
