Balotelli Eager to Learn From Rodgers and Get Back Among the Goals

It hasn't been an ideal start at Liverpool for Mario Balotelli, but the 24-year-old Italian is confident that he'll improve under the guidance of Brendan Rodgers. There will hopefully be a point in the near future that Mario Balotelli starts making headlines for his exploits on the pitch rather than off. It's not as though he's not been the distraction many promised he'd be; the media has been quick to paint him as such in his first few months on Merseyside, but by all accounts he's been an excellent teammate and a model professional as he seeks to integrate himself into a new squad and...

Mario Balotelli Knows He's Okay if Kids Don't Run Screaming From Him

Mario Balotelli's gotten a lot of bad press over his career, but as long as the kids like him, he knows he can't be doing anything all that terrible. Mario Balotelli and controversy never seem that far apart. Whether the striker deserves his rather unusual brand of notoriety or not is another matter, but it's hard to argue that it doesn't exist; that he doesn't appear able to turn the most mundane of actions into the most sensational of headlines with relative ease. For Balotelli, though, there's one surefire way to check if he's gone too far. To determine if he's crossed done anything...

Report: Rodgers Will Attempt to Recall Striker From Lille in January

Brendan Rodgers is apparently not thrilled with how his strike force is working out, so will reportedly try to get Divock Origi out of his loan to Lille and into his lineup at Anfield. When Liverpool bought Belgian star-in-the-making Divock Origi this summer, the move came with one major stipulation in order to make it go: Origi had to return to Lille for a year on loan, both to help him develop and apparently because the young striker felt he wasn't quite done in France yet. That lead Liverpool to buy Mario Balotelli to help bolster their striker depth in the meantime, a move that hasn't...

Balotelli Struggling To Find Goal Scoring Form Since Liverpool Arrival

Balotelli Struggling To Find Goal Scoring Form Since Liverpool Arrival

Balotelli must begin converting some of his endless goal opportunities if the Reds are to be successful. Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers heaped praise on the attitude of forward Mario Balotelli following the Reds 1-1 draw against Everton in this past Saturdays Merseyside derby. After the match Rodgers credited Balotelli's work ethic and composure in the face of several tough challenges from the Everton side. While it can't be denied the notoriously hot-headed Balotelli has maintained a positive attitude since transferring to Liverpool, his lack of production must also be noted. Balotelli...

Liverpool 1, Everton 1: Rank the Performances

With a tough derby draw with Everton in the books, we want to know how you would rank Liverpool's performers and who your Man of the Match is. With Liverpool's attack failing to click, it's hard to say anything more than a draw was deserved. Markovic continued to struggle, Sterling's decision making seemed impaired after 120 minutes on Tuesday, and for all Balotelli showed admirable effort, he looked out of place as the lone striker. At least it was more positive in midfield, though, with all three of Lallana, Henderson, and Gerrard impressing. Let us know how you saw it. Clicking the...
