Liverpool have made substantial signings during the summer transfer window to increase the squad strength, but their former defender Jamie Carragher is of the opinion that the team may not be strong enough. Carragher was part of the Liverpool team that failed to win a league title for more than a decade, but he did win several trophies with the club including the UEFA Cup and the FA Cup. The former England international says that he is extremely happy with the way Liverpool boss Brendan Rodgers has strengthened the team by spending close to £ 100 million.
Although Belgium suffered defeat against Argentina in the Round of 8 the other day to get out of the FIFA World Cup, but, the skipper of the side, Vincent Kompany, is fairly happy with how their campaign in Brazil went.

Former Liverpool defender Jamie Carragher has revealed that England need to stop Luis Suarez from doing his tricks when England take on Uruguay in the second group match of the World Cup 2014.

He underwent surgery on his troublesome knee only a few weeks ago, but he is expected to return back to the starting line-up against England. After having played with him before retiring, Carragher is someone who knows the 27-year-old extremely well.

Former Liverpool defender Jamie Carragher says that Arsenal are no longer the favourites to finish in the top four after their 3-0 defeat against Everton. Merseyside clubs have been performing extremely well this season.
After several years of failure to challenge for the title, Liverpool are doing exactly that this campaign. Everton have finished in the top four once, but it was a freak season according to many. However, this campaign, Everton have been up there with some of the best clubs under the management of Roberto Martinez.
Former Liverpool defender Jamie Carragher lifted numerous titles with his boyhood club, but the Premier league title was won trophy that proved elusive for the footballer-turned-pundit.
He is currently working with Sky Sports as one of the main pundits and he feels that if Liverpool win the title this campaign, then it would even go beyond their 2005 Champions League win. This has far been regarded as the best achievement by Liverpool, as they came from three goals down to beat AC Milan in the final of the competition.

Liverpool midfielder Steven Gerrard has said that the youngster John Flanagan, who made one of the few starts of the season against Everton on Saturday, reminds him of former defender Jamie Carragher.
Carragher is regarded as one of the finest players to come from the Liverpool youth academy in the last decade. There has been no progress in the youth team players into the first team since then. Gerrard is also one of the last of the breed. Flanagan, though, has shown tremendous promise in the match as he has played so far.
