Gerrard to Liverpool, Kane to Manchester United – Transfer or No transfer

Gerrard to Liverpool, Kane to Manchester United – Transfer or No transfer


Despite the transfer window closure in September, there are still a few players that are currently being strewed around, while managers are looking for that one player to make a difference on their squad. Unfortunately, since clubs can only begin to purchase players starting the 1st of January of next year, most of the players are only able to be on loan these next few months.

Even with all of the rumours being said around the soccer world, players are not allowed to officially move until the start of January. All of these rumours are simply a media stunt that the players and their agents are currently running. For instance, if a player is unhappy at a certain club, he will get his agent to start putting out newspaper clips that certain teams are considering a move for players in the January transfer window so that it goes out on social media and creates more and more rumours and interest for football fans and also other managers.

There are also certain rumours where if a club wants to get rid of a player, they will then also use this media stunt as a way to pass messages through the media.

Despite all of the gossip, there has been a lot of speculation about Steven Gerrard returning back to Liverpool on loan, but to be honest this would probably not be the best idea. Steven Gerrard has moved on to the LA Galaxy and has started a new career there in Los Angeles. Liverpool are going to have to move on and learn how to perform without him.

Steven Gerrard was with Liverpool for more than 17 years, so everyone knows that that is his club, but he will need to learn how to break away from his comfort zone and play in the U.S. His loyalty to the LA Galaxy will make him more motivated to take the team to a league win next season. Gerrard needs to focus on his playing in the United States and help his team to gain confidence on the field after their playoff loss to Seattle Sounders.

There are also a lot of little snips about Manchester United coming in to buy Harry Kane from Tottenham Hotspur, but Spurs does not want to sell him for any price. He has grown with the club and has truly become a leader on the squad. Tottenham is one club in England known for developing players until they become leaders on the pitch, and then selling them to other clubs within Europe. But with Harry Kane, he has become such a key player for the spurs that Tottenham is not looking to sell him any time soon like they did with Gareth Bale and Luka Modric.



    I was so saddened by the recent terrorist attacks in Paris, France. Not forgetting the recent and past attacks like the September 11th attacks in USA, attacks in Nairobi, Tanzania, suicide bombings in Israel, Iraq, Boko Haram in Nigeria, etc. just to mention a few.
    According to stats, these acts does not only affect Europe or American countries only rather the rest of the world. We are all affected by these horrific acts.
    Firstly; I’ve every reason to applaud the governments, NGOs, the international community for the strides made in initiatives to eliminate terrorism, uplifting the poor from poverty, supporting initiatives to promote peace, etc.
    But I choose to believe that it is rather everyone’s responsibility to make sure that our societies, countries; and the rest of the world is a better place we can peacefully and productively live on.
    We are all a people with great worth in society and having important responsibilities to make earth a better place for all. We have special purpose and having such a purpose, we should understand that what we do in our day to day lives touches lives of those around us, therefore let’s take an initiative doing good for the general good of every human life on earth.
    Let us be a people who respect the dignity of all people without considering their gender, race, religion, disability, skin color, nationality and strive for excellence in our associations.
    We are a people capable of bringing a positive difference to someone, to a country and the rest of the world in making decisions that are responsible, based on the fact that are carefully weighed and that people around us will benefit from them, not selfish, non-corrupt, non-violent, etc.
    Great countries, successful communities are founded on productive ingenuity of zealous people who seek a better life as a common goal and good of all people not selfish minds.
    Secondly; I come to this hallowed spot to remind all people of the world that now is the time we can make real the promises of peace and democracy to our countries a reality. I have chosen to take this opportunity to remind everyone that we truly need peace and one may ask; what peace am I talking about. It is the genuine peace that President F. Kennedy once spoke about, the genuine peace, and the kind of peace that makes life on earth worth living.
    The kind of peace that makes men and women to grow; to hope and to build a better life for their children—not merely peace for so called superpowers but peace of all men and women of the world—not merely peace of our time but peace of all time.
    I speak of peace now because of this new face of the world of terrorism. Very big sum of Billions of Dollars, Pounds, Euros are spent on so called programs to encourage peace and democracy in countries that in turn little is achieved. This does not mean that peace cannot be achieved, no. We can achieve it together.
    I should choose to believe that these problems that we are faced with rotating around terrorism are manmade therefore IF THEY ARE MANMADE, they can be solved by man too.
    AS quote as he said; Grand peace and a fight to terrorism is and must be a product of many nations, countries, the sum of many acts of the world not only having America and the other super powers going to bomb the so called terrorists by themselves an act that also result into innocent souls lost.
    World peace, like community peace and the fight against terrorism, does not require that each country love only itself–it requires countries to come together, people come together, leave there differences aside and live together in mutual tolerance, submitting their disputes to a just and peaceful settlement.
    Thirdly; Let us reexamine our attitude toward the acts of terrorism that is affecting us. It is discouraging to think that there are some people, believes and leaders who believe that their grievances can be addressed through this horror act of terrorism. I am not here distributing blame or pointing the finger of judgment; no! But it is wrong to have some people, leaders encouraging this act in the name of fighting for freedom. I believe we must conduct our affairs in such a way that is not violent while defending our own vital interests that are not oppressive to the other beings, countries, etc.
    Fourthly; We must seek to strengthen the United Nations to make it a more effective instrument for peace, to develop it into a genuine world security system–a system capable of resolving disputes on the basis of law, of insuring the security of the large and the small, and of creating conditions under which arms can finally be abolished. Not an instrument to only show favors to super power countries of the world.
    The same with our governments; In all countries citizens entrust governments, the public sector and state enterprises with their tax money and the resources of their country to manage the public good, present and future, and to provide essential services and infrastructure. It is this element of trust that I would like to address too now.
    State corporations are trusted by citizens and they rely on them, governments, trust these state enterprises to manage public resources and provide essential services. We have come to expect centralized systems for providing water, sanitation, transportation, and power. In many countries, we pay high taxes so we can delegate responsibilities for cleaning our streets, educating our children, paving our roads, tending to our healthcare needs.
    The importance of these roles and responsibilities, underscores the importance of the trust we place in those who undertake them on our behalf. People have a right to expect that these service providers carry out their duties mindful of those for whom they are in essence working: all citizens.
    When the government systems, the states, United Nations, European Union, fail in their responsibilities to their citizens; a lot of things go wrong.
    It means providing quality services, of ensuring honest and prudent management of financial resources and assets in such bodies is very important. It means providing these services in a safe way, in a fair, honest and professional manner. And, at the end of the day, it means demonstrating full accountability to the people.
    This is a tall order in all parts of the world. Few governments in the world are good on these areas but some do much better than others – but the rest are doing poorly, the other reasons that other people are forced to take wrong acts in addressing such grievances.
    Making sure that the contract of trust between the governments and state enterprises with citizens is very important in addressing matters of national interest.
    This is a clear fact that there are clear internal and external threats that can compromise the management governments and of state. That is why I also stress also on such matters while talking about terrorism.
    Now is the opportune time to take this fight against terrorism a reality; to make the justice of to all nations a reality. It would be truly a fatal mistake to the urgency of the time and been so adamant to oppressing kind of leadership of some leaders of the world.
    And to those who are rightfully fighting for the well being of their rights and of their countries must not resort to violent acts and they must not be guilty of wrongful deeds of terrorism, violence, etc.
    Let us not seek to satisfy our thirst for freedom and rights by drinking from the cup of bitterness and hatred. Don’t allow creative protests degenerate into physical violence.
    I would like to give an example of Nelson Mandela who came out of so much pain and he never took it personal that he resorts into violent acts to show his frustration during his time of jail and tribulation.
    I am mindful that some of you people have gone through great trials and tribulations; and you were left battered by the storms of persecutions but instead of showing your hurt through terrorism is not a good idea; let us seek amicable solutions for the wellbeing of everyone in this world of ours.
    Lastly; I can keep talking and talking but for now I would like to edge our governments, NGOs’, that in order to sustain the positive developments achieved so far, we must all pay attention to those areas that we can see that they are still falling apart and we together seek the way forward on what we can do to address such issues. We all have a role to play in the fight against terrorism.

    And to the citizens of all countries; Much as we understand that the governments have the right to propose and lead on areas of national importance, we should understand that we all have a role to play. In so doing, we hope to usher ourselves into a new era that has a common goal of finding solutions towards the development of our countries and achieving the peace we hope for. Say no to Terrorism, Say yes to peace.
