Emiliano Insua hopes today will mark the start of him fulfilling a lifelong footballing dream - playing at Wembley in an FA Cup final.

The Argentine, who turns 21 next week, could line-up in our third round clash at Reading on Saturday tea-time.

And he hopes it will be one of many Cup appearances this term as the Reds look to claim their first piece of silverware since 2006.

Insua said: "We are all so disappointed we haven't done better in the league, the Champions League and the Carling Cup but we have another opportunity to change things in the FA Cup.

"It's very important for a club like Liverpool to be competing for trophies. We have got to keep fighting and we know it is going to be very difficult against Reading, because they will see this as an opportunity. We have got to be ready.

"We want to celebrate the New Year with a win that will hopefully be the first on the way to Wembley. Last year I was disappointed to miss all those games against Everton because I was away on international duty.

"This year we are all determined to go many rounds further than we have done in the past couple of seasons.

"The FA Cup is special; everybody around the world knows about its prestige and its history.

"After the Premier League, it's the one competition every team wants to win. First we have to try and beat Reading and make sure we are in the next round. To play at Wembley would be a dream - hopefully it's one that will come true this year."


Insua has been one of Liverpool's stand-out performers as the club has recorded back-to-back wins over Wolves and Aston Villa.

And he insists he and his teammates are now in good spirits as they prepare for crucial games against Reading and top-four rivals Tottenham next weekend.

"It was an important win at Villa," Insua said. "They are fighting with us for fourth place but we made ourselves difficult to break down, we started the game with confidence and things started to pick up from there. It was fantastic to score in the last minute.

"That was the kind of performance we have to keep producing but we feel much better now and we will keep going. We have been trying all season to win some games in a row but now we have got two wins, we have to keep it going.

"Hopefully this will mean we will start to play better, that we'll have more confidence and will start to climb the league. Once we have played against Reading we can start to look forward to the Tottenham game. It's crucial that we beat them."

Emiliano Insua today insisted Liverpool will return from the international break desperate to make amends for recent disappointments in their league campaign.

The Reds' international players return to Melwood this week ahead of Saturday's clash with Manchester City, when Rafael Benitez's men will be looking to haul themselves closer to the top four in the league standings.

But with 18 goals having already been shipped in 12 league games this season, Insua knows the emphasis is on regaining the watertight nature which has been the hallmark of Liverpool's defence over recent years.

"I'm not sure why our record hasn’t been as good this season," Insua said.

"Maybe it’s partly down to concentration. But it is also clear that we are conceding too many goals from set-pieces."

"We know we have to improve in this area. The players and the staff have to work to try and find a solution."


Insua also admits the relentless stream of injuries haven't helped the Reds' cause this term - but he insists they have the character to bounce back and resstablish themselves as a force in the league.

"At times it has been difficult. If you look at the Fulham game, we went there without 11 or 12 players who were injured," he added. "We got Albert Riera back to face Birmingham but then he got injured again and had to go off. Yossi also suffered an injury in that game and could now be out for some weeks."

"Just as we get players back, someone else has got injured. Yes, it's difficult but we should have enough in the squad to cope with these situations."

"Against Birmingham, we controlled the game and had plenty of possession."

"I was reading the reports the next day that said we had 78 per cent possession. When you study the game again you can see that we deserved to win."

"But we can not change the result now. Afterwards all you can do is think about the future and improving. We have to come back stronger."

Mauricio Pellegrino has backed Emiliano Insua to achieve his dream of being called up by the Argentinean national team.

After breaking into the Liverpool first-team last season, the 20-year-old left-back has started all four of the Reds' matches so far this term.

Pellegrino has been delighted by the form of his compatriot - and believes there is much more to come.

"We are always thinking about whether a young player can be involved in the future because the gap between the reserves and the first-team is really thin," the Reds first-team coach told Liverpoolfc.tv.

"But it is difficult because to make this jump you require a lot of different circumstances for it to happen.

"You have to be ready and when Emiliano had the opportunity to play, his performances were really good.

"Now he is involved in more games and is playing almost every match.

"Emiliano will be a really important player in the future. He is young and can progress a lot. The best is yet to come from him, but now he is working hard and I am sure he will improve."


Asked if he felt Insua could soon make the step-up to international level for Argentina, Pellegrino replied: "Yes. Liverpool are a big club and everybody in Argentina follows the Premier League. A lot of people in Argentina are talking about Emiliano and I don't see any reason why not."

Insua's first-team berth could soon come under pressure from Fabio Aurelio, with the Brazilian defender edging ever closer to full fitness following injury.

-----

I really hope he will at least get a chance on playing when Fabio is fit again, because he was amazing in his matches so far. so yeah. HOPE! and about the international call-up... well I wouldn't mind him not playing for them at the moment, not with the atmosphere going on.

Hiya,

I have scanned the pictures from the new LFC catalogue and Emiliano features in it, you can find the scan here at my journal and it is a public post.  If you want to use the pictures then you are more than welcome to do so, I just ask that there is no hotlinking and credit is given.

Hope you enjoy the pictures ;)

Javier Mascherano expects compatriot Emiliano Insua to take his game to another level next season after an impressive 2008-09.

The 20-year-old made 13 appearances at left-back last campaign despite the presence of Fabio Aurelio and Andrea Dossena.

Fellow Argentine Mascherano thinks Insua will give his more experienced counterparts even more of a run for their money when the new season gets underway.

"He's been doing well," Mascherano told LFC Magazine. "Obviously he is a young player so can still improve and get better.

"It isn't easy to be playing for the Liverpool first team at just 20-years-old. I'm really happy for him."


Insua initially joined Liverpool on loan from Boca Juniors in January 2007 before the deal was made permanent later in the same year.

Mascherano added: "Emiliano didn't play first-team football in Argentina, so to come here at such a young age and make the breakthrough is a great achievement.

"It would have been easier for him had he played first-team football in Argentina. Everything was new to Insua when he came here. But after just two years he is playing really well whenever he gets into the first team."

Emiliano Insua has called for Liverpool to sign off their season in style as they begin preparations for a renewed assault on the Barclays Premier League title next campaign.

Manchester United clinched the crown with a goalless draw against Arsenal on Saturday, although the Old Trafford club were pushed all the way by a Reds side who mounted their best Championship challenge since 1990.

Insua believes the disappointment of missing out on the prize will make Liverpool even more determined to claim the title next season and the Argentina defender is looking to end the current campaign on a high by beating Tottenham Hotspur at Anfield on Sunday.

"Everybody wants to win the title but it wasn't to be for us this year because Man United have won it and this is football," said Insua.

"This means that we have to look at ways that we can improve and hopefully next season will be even better than this one.

"We cannot be feeling sorry for ourselves because we still have one more game to go and if we win it we will have 86 points, which will be a record for us in the Premier League.

"The fans will also be wanting us to win and we have to try to do that.

"If we can win against Tottenham then it will be a good way to end this season and it will also keep our run going which is important for next season.

"We have pushed United very hard but in the end it just wasn’t enough."

Emiliano Insua reflected on the 3-1 win at Hull City and admitted the Reds had to dig deep to get the three points.

Dirk Kuyt's double strike plus a superb effort from Xabi Alonso ensured the Reds remained in the title hunt, but they had to work hard to get the three points. The Argentine starlet was making his 11th appearance of the season at the KC Stadium and put in another accomplished display at left back.

"It was a very difficult game and the pitch wasn't the best but we got the three points which is the most important thing at this stage of the season," Insua told Liverpoolfc.tv. "The first half was very tough but fortunately Xabi scored with a great strike and with it coming just before half-time it was very important for us. "We had to work hard in the second half and credit to Hull who kept working hard despite them having a man sent-off. "Fortunately Dirk scored two goals in the second half for us and it was good to get the three points despite us not being at our best."

The Reds have four games remaining and Manchester United must slip-up in their final five games to give Rafael Benitez's side a fighting chance.

"We know what we have to do and that is win our last four games," said Insua. "We know anything can happen in football and we have to hope Manchester United will drop some points."

Rafael Benitez has heaped praise on Emiliano Insua after the Argentine stepped up his bid for a regular place in the side with an eye-catching display against Blackburn.

The left-back made his 10th appearance of the season for the Reds in the 4-0 triumph over Rovers and the boss is now urging the 20-year-old to maintain his form in the remaining six league matches.

"Insua is improving and the competition for the left back position is very high with Fabio Aurelio and Andrea Dossena," he said.

"Insua is doing well and the team is doing well. Hopefully we can see Emiliano fighting for his position until the end of the season with Fabio and Dossena."

so he really does get a chance to fight for this spot, now just sell Doss during summer and almost everything will be sorted. ;) Fabio can't play every match...

this is late as usual, but hey sine it's nothing new from you guys will be okay with it. or rather the 2 people who actually do care. ;)

Emiliano played (actually started and play the WHOLE match) vs Blackburn and yeah he was good. I feel so proud... his crosses are pretty damn amazing I have to say and even though he sometimes a tiny bit to sloppy (or maybe it's just because he hasn't played this much with the first team, I don't know) at the back. I feel save with him playing the left back position.

SOME PICTURESCollapse )

Emiliano Insua has set his sights on playing a key role in Liverpool's title run-in. The Argentine established himself as first-choice left-back prior to February's World Cup under-20 qualifying tournament, but since returning to the club he has been restricted to just one appearance due to Fabio Aurelio's superb form.

He admits it has been frustrating watching the Reds hit peak form from the bench but is hopeful he can still play a part in what he believes will be an exciting conclusion to the campaign.

the whole, pretty long but good, article behind the cutCollapse )

sooooo Emiliano was Man of the Match yesterday. our reserves got through to the final of the Senior cup (full article).

and because I just found them... old Emiliano pictures! Portsmouth vs Liverpool, April 28th 2007.



 
 
12 March 2009 @ 10:15 pm
well these are from the training day ahead of the Real Madrid Match (which always reminds how mad I am about him not being in the CL squad - in case we win it this year, he just won't have the title... meeh).


(click for full size)

two moreCollapse )


okay there were I think three or two others, but he could be barely seen on these, so these will do :)

in other news Emiliano isn't playing for the Reserves today - I kinda hope here he will get a run out vs United on Saturday.
 
 
08 March 2009 @ 07:09 pm
I'll try posting a few pictures over the next few days, this way I have something to post. starting with some off the pitch Emiliano (on the right) and his little brother (on the left).

 
 
03 March 2009 @ 08:38 pm
I was thinking about opening a Emiliano Insua Community for quite some time now and as you can see - here it is. I just had too, my folks know how crazy I am about him.

obviously there might not happen too much here for the time being since he only just started getting into the first team. but if you have any news, pictures, graphics, whatever just post them. :)

the usual rules apply (just check the user info for more details).

so have fun.
