I think it is fair to say no player would be signed without the say so of Brendan.

The biggest failure so far is Lovren and that was a player Brendan definitely wanted.

The one player that we don't really know is Balotelli whether Brendan ultimately really desired him or if the committee pushed that signing through.

I can say that Lovren, Moreno and Lallana are definite players than Brendan wanted.

Agreed those three are nobrainers. Sakho's a different story though. Arguably the best CB with the ball at his feet since Jockey became a role model for a young lad like meself. He never ever really got a chance IMHO. Even my Manc mate is gobsmacked at the fact we don't rate him.

King Kenny hits it nail on.

http://www.mirror.co.uk/sport/football/news/brendan-rodgers-lot-right-against-4587241

The Dalglish backing is fatal for Rodgers.

Dalglish spent 35 million on Andy Carroll and went on to claim:

"Andy's done fantastically well getting back to where he has, with his application and dedication.
Whatever Andy has done, he has done it very well, and somebody else's opinion is up to them.
But he cannot be criticised in any way, shape or form for what he has done since he has been at Liverpool."
In the midst of winter, I finally learned that there was, in me, an invincible summer.

There’s no next time. It’s now or never.

But is Rory Smith's balanced and highly intellectual  analysis of the current state to his advantage? This is arguably one of the best pieces I ever read.

Good link Marx.

As we know the gaffer is not to my taste but, I
love the idea of a comeback.

Besides you can only really judge a manager when
the screws start turning. He took a gamble with
Madrid and it sort of has to pay off for him tomorrow.

Comeback as in comeback from the nadir he's currently in? Or did you have another fella in mind?  :D

Liverpool starting line-up:

Liverpool XI vs Chelsea: Mignolet, Johnson, Skrtel, Lovren, Moreno, Gerrard, Can, Henderson, Coutinho, Sterling, Balotelli

Rodgers blows it by starting Coutinho, Sterling and Henderson. Should've been Lallana, Borini and Allen.

Liverpool 1 - 4 Chelsea.

1-1

but this is embarrassing.

chelsea are playing us off the pitch

they are making chances for fun

they are coming forward in endless raids

there are times when we can't get out of our own half....hell, we can't even get out of our final quarter

this is embarrassing at anfield

we are totally disorganised......players colliding with each other, players out of position, etc

it's jumpers for goalposts.......headless chicken stuff......you'd see more organisation in a bowl of dust.

Gerrard has NO pace at all.  Henderson does'nt look like the player he was for us last season.  The team is not functioning as a team.  We will get ripped I the second half if we keep giving them the ball.

yes, Gerrard needs to be playing in the north american league.

why are we taking half a dozen touches this season.

sterling needs to be far more decisive, instead of taking far too many touches.

against top opponents, you need to be quick.

We are the masters of playing the ball back n forth at the back.  People pay to watch this???

Loren has the ball in fron of him......tries to chip it over Costa who wins it back.  Crikey!  This is unreal!

highly predictable stuff.

chelsea go in front, and it is impossible to break them down

Thus, for any non-rocket scientists in the anfield dugout, KEEP THE FECKEN GAME TIGHT.

But no, David Brent, in his primary schoolyard tactics, says 'ok everyone, jumpers for goalposts'

Really, I think Rodgers should go, and go ASAP.

We have a Reading/Swansea level manager in charge of a top european club. 

Time to bring in someone of the level that we need.
