Do Liverpool have squad depth to compete on two fronts?

Do Liverpool have squad depth to compete on two fronts?

first_imgOf the seven players brought into the starting line-up by Klopp at Burnley, Keita made the strongest case to retain his place at Bournemouth, where there will have to be at least one change, with defender Joe Gomez sidelined for up to six weeks after fracturing his leg.At Turf Moor, Keita showed he was willing to fight for the ball but also provided forward impetus once he got it, almost scoring with a shot that Joe Hart saved brilliantly.“He started the season brilliantly and obviously then getting an injury set him back a little bit. But you can see how good a player he is,” said captain Jordan Henderson.“That shot with the left foot and the save from Hart was fantastic. In his overall play he is comfortable on the ball and he helps build up play from the back. He drives the ball forward, which is big for us. I thought he was outstanding.”As a whole, though, Liverpool lack the strength in depth of Manchester City, the team they will have to surpass in order to become champions of England for the first time since 1990.City had a rather more comfortable night at Watford on Tuesday, despite only winning 2-1, as Pep Guardiola rotated his squad.It raises the question as to whether Liverpool can afford to go full out for both the Champions League and Premier League. Fail to get the right result against Napoli in their final European group-stage game next Tuesday, and the decision will be made for them.Henderson, though, is remaining positive.“The games are coming thick and fast, a lot of games in a short space of time but we showed we can use the squad and still perform to the level we know we are capable of and win games — and that’s a big plus for us,” he said.Share on: WhatsApp Bournemouth, United Kingdom | AFP | Naby Keita has started to show he can add creativity to Liverpool’s midfield but Jurgen Klopp may question his squad’s strength in depth despite securing two Premier League wins in four days.Klopp is likely to revert to his tried-and-trusted first choices at Bournemouth on Saturday, having been a little lucky on Wednesday to emerge with a 3-1 win at Burnley after making seven changes to his line-up.There were good reasons for so many changes — the match came hot on the heels of Sunday’s dramatic late derby victory over Everton, at the start of a frantic month that features home games against Napoli, Manchester United and Arsenal.In addition, full-back Andy Robertson and forward Sadio Mane were injured, and so Klopp would have had to shuffle his players around even if rotation had not been on his mind.Yet Liverpool were second-best for the opening hour at Turf Moor against opponents without a victory since September 30, and only turned the match around in the final 30 minutes, when Klopp brought on Mohamed Salah and Roberto Firmino.It was evidence of just how important Salah, Firmino and Sane are to the Liverpool cause, even if they have not necessarily been at their best this season.During Liverpool’s struggles on Wednesday, though, the performance of Keita did give Klopp reason to be positive.The Guinea midfielder’s impact has been restricted by injury problems since his arrival from RB Leipzig in July but he is starting to look at home in the English game.His creativity is likely to be crucial, given that Liverpool have been short of such a player following the departure of Philippe Coutinho to Barcelona in January and because of the long-term knee injury suffered by Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain in April.– Keita makes his case –last_img read more

Fair Haven Council Doesn’t Want Drive-Thrus

Fair Haven Council Doesn’t Want Drive-Thrus

first_imgCole said she believes the community is against the application namely for the “safety concerns it creates” near a troublesome driveway exit onto River Road in an area she said has already seen its share of motor vehicle accidents and collisions with bicyclists. “That corridor is interwoven into our community so you really have to be responsible with your land-use planning,” said Cole. “And what could become of it? This would be a mini-urban center. Three blocks of high-intensity traffic. Fast food is not the only form of retail. They’re just the most aggressive lease signers right now.” “The Fair Share housing plan is in the courts right now and we have our next hearing coming up in August. We can’t have something like the wording of an ordinance blow this plan up,” Lucarelli said. Cole also said the introduction of fast food establishments in that River Road corridor could alter the small town community and culture Fair Haven has developed because it could increase both motor vehicle and pedestrian traffic. Borough resident Tracy Cole has opposed the Dunkin’ proposal since its inception, hiring a land-use attorney to argue against the application at planning and zoning board meetings. For months, residents have flocked to the borough’s council, planning and zoning board meetings to oppose a proposed Dunkin’ franchise at the River Road shopping center, mostly citing traffic concerns. Lucarelli said the timeline for the examination of the ordinance could be six months to a year. But forming the advisory committee is the first step in a process that is already under way. Mayor Benjamin Lucarelli said he and the governing body will assign an advisory committee to make sure the introduced ordinance is not detrimental to the future of Fair Haven or harmful to the borough’s proposed Fair Share Center Housing plan. The proposed drive-thru ordinance would have no impact on the Dunkin’ application. But it would replace a prohibitive piece of legislation established in 1973 when the borough won a superior court challenge against McDonald’s. That ordinance was repealed and exchanged with a similar ordinance in 1998, but was removed from borough law during a 2002 recodification. FAIR HAVEN – As Fair Haven decides whether it will allow fast food restaurants in town, it is moving forward on creating a new ordinance that will specifically prohibit drive-thru restaurants. The proposed legislation restricts restaurants from including drive-thru features, like typical McDonald’s or KFC chains, or a drive-in environment like Sonic or Stewart’s. Walk-up windows are also prohibited, barring food trucks and many ice cream operations similar to Rita’s Italian Ice or Strollo’s Lighthouse. “Our plan calls for mixed-use developments in overlay zones because those are the most economically viable options,” said Lucarelli. “The plan has to pass the economic viability test. So if we outlaw all fast food uses, our overlay zones can be considered not economically viable.” To address that, Fair Haven is proposing the establishment of overlay zones over existing zoning to incentivize builders to create affordable housing. The zones would be located at United Methodist Church on McCarter Avenue, as well as in the borough’s commercial district on River Road from Smith Street to Locust Avenue, including residential properties near Navesink Avenue and Forman Street. New Jersey’s Fair Share Housing Center said the borough has an immediate need for one affordable housing unit and an unmet need of 370. Some residents believe this outlet at River Road will be dangerous for motorists, pedestrians and school children if the Dunkin’ application is approved. Photo by Chris Rotololast_img read more
