INTERNATIONAL DUTY CALL FOR SAVILLE

Posted on December 19, 2017 in Conor Mclaughlin

Millwall midfielder George Saville is expected to step up whilst on Northern Ireland international duty. He played as a Chelsea youth player for years and must have taken a few cues from when the Blues lifted the Champions League title in 2012.

Michael O’Neill named the player for Northern Ireland’s World Cup qualifiers as they seek to seal their playoff spot. Germany, packed with Bayern Munich stars that Saville saw first-hand Chelsea defeat in 2012, is set to face Northern Ireland on Thursday.

Conor McLaughlin believes improvement will come

Posted on October 6, 2017 in Conor Mclaughlin

Millwall defender Conor McLaughlin is confident that the team will improve and that they will be able to win some games.


He said that this league is very difficult and that the difference lies in the fact that the oppositions are more potent in their attack.

He said that they would need to score more goals if they want to win games in the Championship. In the match against Bolton Wanderers, Millwall thought that they did the most difficult thing by opening up the score, but they will concede a goal in the closing stage of the game.

Conor McLaughlin said that they would need to learn to defend better as the sides in this league can score goals at any moment and that they will have to improve defensively. (more…)

Posted on August 8, 2017 in Conor Mclaughlin

Fleetwood Town’s Northern Ireland defender, Conor Gerard Mcclaughlin has extended his contract at the High Bury stadium.


The club has offered new contracts to the 25-year-old, with the player among Town players whose contracts expire in the summer.

Coach of the league one side, Uwe Rosler said: “We have a structure and I recommend that I would like to continue with the player. I can assure you that Conor has been offered a new contract.”

After featuring only once for his country at Euro 2016 in their first game against Poland, McLaughlin has regained his place in Michael O’neil’s team and scored his first international goal in the World Cup qualifier game against Azerbaijan last month. (more…)

Fleetwood Town management happy with Ball and McLaughlin

Posted on July 4, 2017 in Conor Mclaughlin

The Fleetwood Town management was desperate for their experienced duo of Ball and McLaughlin to stay and had thrown extension offers to both of them, but, both have told the club that they are not interested to continue in League One anymore and are exploring opportunities to ply their trade somewhere else and thus are not going to accept the offers.


Uwe Rosler, who is presently in charge of the first team of Fleetwood Town, confirmed the news of the departure of Ball and McLaughlin yesterday and insisted that despite their departures, his relationship with them is going to be fine and he wants them to have a lot of success wherever they get their opportunities.

As per Rosler, the kind of form both the players have been in for Fleetwood in the past three seasons, they have earned the right to play at a higher level and showcase their potential against better oppositions. So, there’s no question of him feeling let down by their decisions to leave. (more…)

LUCKY LIVERPOOL WIN MERESEYSIDE DERBY

Posted on February 8, 2017 in Conor Mclaughlin

Liverpool over came cross-town rivals Everton at the Goodison Park on Monday courtesy of a 92nd minute strike from Sadio Mane off an initial rebound from an earlier Daniel Sturridge drive.


The win stretches the Reds dominance to 90 wins in 227 derbies and also ensured their counterparts’ failure to beat them stretches back to 2010

The news leading to the match centered mainly on how important a positive result will be for The Toffees boss Ronald Koeman and on how Liverpool needed to prove what they are capable of without the sidelined Coutinho.

The first half of the game had everything the Merseyside derby was known for: speed, tension, daring tackles and much more. The fact that referee Mike Dean did not dish out a yellow card during the feisty first half is one of the biggest miracles of the season so far.

Intensity was the watchword for the first 45 minutes and Liverpool did lose on those grounds because the Everton players came out on top mainly from the disruptive approach they employed on the visitors. Both sides ran but Everton ran more, tackled harder and intercepted more passes as they made complete use of their physicality –something Wenger whined about the last time his side visited Goodison – to make sure meaningful strings of passes that often lead to progressive chance-creating rhythms were almost non-existent for Jurgen Klopp’s men

Summer signing Klavan was the main reason for all the hassles and tussles of the Toffees, scoring a goal – the main thing that counts – seemed farfetched as the Estonian nullified all variety of threats posed by Lukaku who served as the focal point of the home side’s attack.

The second half of the game came with a reversal of duties with Everton’s initial steam cooling off as a result of the stamina-reducing high press they operated with in the first half. That does not mean Liverpool took up the Toffees’ first half style though. For the Reds, a game-controlling gradual build up from the back with Klavan and Lovren triggering off strings of passes was the main reason they were able to take charge of the game. As a result, even when the host employed their hassling approach, the Reds made sure they reduced their opponents to chasing their shadows. (more…)

MCLAUGHLIN ASKS MORE DEFENDERS TO SCORE

Posted on December 14, 2016 in Conor Mclaughlin

Fleetwood player Conor Mclaughlin has tasked his fellow defenders with scoring more goals if the team wants a better season that the status quo.


Mclaughlin scored two goals all season last year but he has already overtaken his tally this term. He has contributed two more goals to the team aside his crucial effort at Chesterfield in October. He headed in a goal in injury time to earn a point for the team in the 2-2 draw during the clash with AFC Wimbledon and he scored in the 3-0 victory over Shrewsbury.

Aside Mclaughlin’s effort, fellow wingback Amari’i Bell scored in two straight games against Southport and Chesterfield. Central defender Cian Bolger also contributed a goal when he grabbed his first league goal for the club against Wimbledon.

“It’s strange – Amari’i said that when he gets one, he usually gets another straight after and now that’s happened to me. If we can chip in and help the strikers, then it will be a better season for us,” Mclaughlin said.
The Northern Ireland player also scored his first international goal this month in the 4-0 victory over Azerbaijan in a World Cup qualifier.

“It’s an honour even playing for your country, let alone scoring. It’s something I will remember for a long time,” he said of his goal, being the first Fleetwood Town player to score in a senior international game.

Fleetwood coach Uwe Rosler reckons that the team could have picked up all three points during the meeting in the southeast. They were ahead by halftime, but lost their lead to go 1-2 due to goals from Tom Elliott and a controversial penalty offered to Dean Parrett. Rosler said the team should have put the game away when they could but was happy with how they “came back from the disappointment.”
