The gaffer needs to find solutions.

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.

bloddy ell, why oh why, oh why, do I wake up on a nice Saturday morning to find that we are not playing until Sunday.

Feck tv companies.

Why does Liverpool always seem to be playing on a Sunday.

I want regular Saturday 3PM football.

Now I have to put up with looking quietly every half an hour, to see if there is any upset re Chelsea, or United, or Man City.

Important run of games for Brendan coming up.  Palace could put the first nail in Rodger's Anfield career coffin tomorrow.

Gaffer tape!

You'd expect to see some signs that he's got a handle on things.

I think we'll get to the final of the Capital 1 cup.

As you say, plenty of banana skins ahead in the short term.

gaffer tape   :D


I don't think we could even get to the final of the Doctor Marten's Cheshire Sunday Pub Lunch League Cup final.

We are shipping goals for fun.

We have no midfield.  And we cannot score.

40 pints is my first port of call.

And I'm quite certain they will. A draw is the best we can hope for. In fact, I can see us draw the next for PL-games. Massive game on Wednesday night though.

Jesus, there's no future for a manager at LFC
unless he has a talent for winning leagues and
acquiring silverware.

A very depressing read here!

There are reports coming in - unconfirmed as yet - that one of our strikers has scored a goal.

More as we have it.

Liverpool as usual under Rodgers, have no control of the game.

It's jumpers for goal posts.   With a tracksuit-bottomed PE teacher managing the anarchy, handing out bibs, and blowing his whistle.

I'll be surprised if Palace don't go on to win this game.

Abject performance, cannot defend. Joke lineup. Lovren and Johnson can't defend. Can who played well against Chelsea instantly dropped. Weak in attack and terribly predictable. Gerrard dire.
Forget about top 4 now, with Rodgers we'll be battling relegation.
Rodgers has to go. Quite obvious he's lost the dressing room.

yes, I think he has lost the dressing room too, Bart.

I think the players have seen through him.

Scarily, there are so many problems across the entire team.  Where would one even start (to fix the issues).

There comes a point where you lose/draw/play terrible so many times it becomes a slippery slope with no way back.

Whatever the reason, fault it goes too far and the psychological effect is rarely reversed. In business and in football there is usually only one way this ends.

Brendan is either incredibly stubborn or incredibly stupid.

I mean its 1-1 and we take off our best midfielder and Gerrard continues to stay on. What the hell is going on!

I think we are witnessing Brendan's final weeks at Anfield.

If this goes on, he won't be in a job come new year's day.

Rodgers doesn't know his best team, his best formation, nor does he have a fornicating clue as how to stop the rot. I see no indication at all we're about to turn a corner and I actually believe we're going to finish in the bottom half.

Rodgers will get this season then he'll leave and another manager will come in and the re-building process has to start all over again and we know that'll take at least 2 seasons. This means the next 2 and a half seasons is wasted.

There's nothing, absolutely nothing, that offers hope. I'm totally depressed knowing we've, afuckinggain, spent whatever money we hade on shine-a-light, meaning a new manager will have to make do with a mid-table squad.

I have never witnessed such a collapse in such a short time of space.

I have always found that - only top managers can identify the issues and turn things around.

Young, inexperienced, bull-shieeters, are way out of their depth when the rot sets in.
