“He changed in a good direction, unfortunately!” – Klopp on the prospect of facing Lage’s Wolves for the first time

Jurgen Klopp was full of praise for Bruno Lage as he faced the media ahead of the game against Wolverhampton Wanderers.

Our manager was asked about his thoughts of the form of the side from Molineux and he was quick to credit their new boss.

The German said: “First and foremost, I have to say a big compliment to the colleague there because it’s really impressive.

“It was not so easy to go there after the long time Nuno has been there and everything is kind of settled and I think was mostly happy, even when the last season was maybe not the best season since Wolves were back in the Premier League.

“It was still very stable, clear style of play and these kind of things. Read the rest

Christian Eriksen close to ending his association with Inter following Euro 2020 heart problem

It would appear that Christian Eriksen’s career as an elite-level player will soon be over.

The Dane, who was close to death after collapsing during the Euro2020 tournament, is unable to play at a competitive level, even after being fitted with an ICD device, according to Calciomercato.

Clearly, with Eriksen’s health the most important concern, there has been an acceptance that his contract with Inter Milan will be terminated shortly, perhaps even before the end of 2021.

Back in very light training with Odense in Denmark, it’s impossible to know what the future holds for the player.

After the harrowing footage of his collapse was beamed worldwide in the summer, the fact that he is still with us is a huge and welcome relief.

AC Milan register interest in out-of-favour Barcelona defender

For those who may have forgotten, Samuel Umtiti still remains a Barcelona player.

The Frenchman, who signed from Olympique Lyon in 2016, has been pretty much out of favour under the last two managers at the club while he does not seem to be in the plans of current head coach Xavi Hernandez either.

One of the highest earners at the club, Barcelona tried to offload him in the summer, but the 28-year-old seemingly convinced president Joan Laporta to give him another chance to prove himself at the club.

While he ended up staying, Umtiti has not taken the field even once this season – not under Ronald Koeman, nor Xavi. And efforts will again be made to ship him off in the upcoming January transfer window, with Barca in need of funds and room on the wage bill to incorporate new players.

Microsoft Flight Simulator New Freeware AI Live Traffic Add-On Revealed; Nuremberg Airport Released; Coffs Harbour Gets New Screenshots

Today third-party developers revealed new details about add-ons coming to Microsoft Flight Simulator.

First of all, we take a look at a new freeware traffic solution. FSLTL, which stands for FS Live Traffic Liveries, has released an impressive trailer showcasing its aircraft in action.

I call it “new,” but those with a good memory may remember this appearing about a year ago and then disappearing. Its developer went back to the drawing board and worked behind the scenes to create something they believe is much better and more comprehensive for what Microsoft Flight Simulator needs nowadays. Considering that it’s a completely new approach to simulating traffic, I’d say it’s “new” enough.

Looking at the trailer below, what’s on offer definitely feels impressive.

Here’s a features list from the developers’ Discord server (which you can join to follow the project):

Features:

  • MSFS independent online IFR/VFR traffic injection system with stock ATC

Liverpool handed double fitness boost at the right time with heavy December fixture schedule looming

Liverpool could be set to soon welcome back both Joe Gomez and Naby Keita to the first-team squad following the pair’s return to training, as reported in a tweet from Goal journalist, Neil Jones.

With the Reds’ midfield options particularly squeezed going into the busy December period, it will be a welcome boost for Jurgen Klopp’s men as they appear to be getting over the worst of their injury blues.

Following the injury crisis in the heart of the backline last term, there are no doubts either that the sight of Joe Gomez on the training turf will be a welcome one.

Moyes getting it right again for West Ham with pursuit of highly-rated Man City star

Ever since David Moyes was re-employed by West Ham United, the East London outfit have been in the ascendency.

It’s fair to say that the Scot had become something of a laughing stock, but no one is laughing now except for perhaps Moyes himself.

The Hammers are turning into a genuine Premier League force, and should fancy themselves of going close in this season’s Europa League after qualifying from the group stage with ease.

Perhaps the club’s only issue is strength in depth, something that’s been highlighted by Angelo Ogbonna’s season-ending injury.

MORE: Klopp’s respect for Benitez

It’s clear that Moyes needs one or two more bodies signed in January in order to keep the team competitive in the new year, and with a view towards the business end of the campaign.
