Liverpool’s on-loan striker Fabio Borini says his goal for Sunderland in the League Cup Final last weekend means he should be playing for a big team. Borini will return to Anfield after his loan spell at the Stadium of Light expires at the end of the season, and will be hoping he’s impressed enough to be part of Brendan Rodgers’ plans. The 22-year-old Italian gave the Black Cats a surprise lead against Manchester City, though the Mackems ended up losing the match 3-1, with Liverpool’s Jordan Henderson cheering on his boyhood club from the stands
Fabio Borini fell under the pen of many journalists last season calling him just not good enough for Liverpool and again that seemed to be the sentiment of many once more at the beginning of the 2013-14 campaign.The Italian striker has had several stints in England and continues to grow into his game in the English Premier League. His manager, Brendan Rodgers, knew that he would not have the time necessary to continue to grow this season on Merseyside as Daniel Sturridge and Luis Suarez and allowed the soon to be 23-year-old to head out on loan to Sunderland in September of 2013.Borini has made the most of his time on Wearside so far as his abilities are only growing and his confidence growth is seeing him become a major part of the offense of Gus Poyet.The Italian has scored six times in 28 appearances for the Black Cats in all competitions and also scored a stunning goal against Manchester City in the first half of the Capital One Cup, and his recent exploits have seen his confidence soar.Speaking to Metro, the young forward believes he is meant to make a name for himself at a massive club:“That means I am made for a big team.
Danny Gallagher on the rejuvenation of Jordan Henderson that has seen him go from a transfer flop to a shinning light in Liverpool’s future. 13th August 2011, and a freshly purchased Jordan Henderson makes his debut for Liverpool against former club Sunderland; firmly under the spotlight following a big money move, reported to be around the £16 million mark. The question on fans’ lips everywhere, could this lad become a regular in the iconic Liverpool midfield, and daresay, a long term replacement for Steven Gerrard?
We hear from Gary McLaughlin at Sunderland fan site We Are Wearside about the growth of Liverpool’s on-loan Italian forward Fabio Borini this season into a much treasured player at the Stadium of Light. There wasn’t a great deal of excitement on Wearside when Fabio Borini was announced as a deadline day loan signing.
After last week’s Wembley heartbreak, Sunderland will be looking to book another trip to the capital with victory in the FA Cup quarter finals this weekend. Standing in their way are a Hull City side, who having already beaten the Black Cats twice in the league this season will be looking to reach the semi-finals […]
Win on Sunday and, as we all know, at least one more Wembley date beckons. Some pragmatic supporters feel that having had our day of pride, competing on equal terms with one of the best teams in the world so that they were time-wasting shamelessly before the undeserved third goal, we should settle for an
March has already been a great month for Daryl Murphy after he scored the winning goal in Ipswich’s victory over Birmingham and won his 10th cap for Ireland, five and a half years after winning his 9th cap.

After losing the league title in the most painful fashion possible (Back in 2012) it was important for Manchester United not to dwell on that traumatic afternoon in Sunderland, but to recuperate and rebuild with the help of a large … Continue readingThe post Why Manchester United need Shinji Kagawa now more than ever before? appeared first on RedMancunian.com.
With an incredibly difficult first season underway at Old Trafford, David Moyes has certainly seen brighter days. Anointed with the nickname “The Chosen One” after being picked out by Sir Alex Ferguson to succeed him, Moyes has had anything but a good time since taking over the reigns at Manchester United. Out of the FA Cup, unable to defeat Sunderland at home in the League Cup, struggling in Premier League, and now two goals down to Olympiakos in the Champions League, the hits just keep coming for United and Moyes.
I believe that the pace, power and experience of Gabby Agbonlahor are of paramount importance to Lambert’s young squad. His presence adds that spark of competitiveness up front, with his power to brush a defender aside and the pace to outrun the average speed of any defender making him a key player to help the team to create more chances and, ultimately, score more goals. Villa have won five games when Agbonlahor has started and the veteran scored once in the win away to Sunderland and again in the away win against Southampton.
