I suspect Rodgers will be sacked at that meeting (just like Dalglish was three years earlier).
You look at Arsenal today, class, cohesion and confidence
in all areas of the pitch and more talent on the bench and
it just shows we're miles behind them. And they actually
competed in the league & Europe this season  :o

What really grates is how Arsenal have used the FA cup to
build a platform of success from, to the point where they
can actually look to compete for the title next season.

By contrast after 3 years under Rodgers, we're a joke. Simply
not a football club anymore. An annoying outfit lead by a jackass.

Both teams looked like what the league table suggested they were. We may have been closer to Arsenal in the table but look much closer to Villa in standard and technique. It was quite shocking watching it to think that Villa actually beat us. All the way through it was just a matter of two things where Arsenal were concerned - when they would score and how many.

I can see why Benteke is so highly rated at the club, as he'd fit right in with the defensively clueless rabble we already have. Mertesacker lost him with the same basic move(ment) every time. It was laughable.
Don't make the same mistake twice, there's plenty of new ones to choose from.

Brendan's survived. He'll be our manager for 15/16.

Is this an unscripted episode of the soap 'Being Liverpool'?

Liverpool's James Milner move on the rocks due to doubts over Brendan Rodgers' Anfield future

Or

Brendan Rodgers' Liverpool future will NOT be on the agenda when he meets the club's owners next month

http://www.mirror.co.uk/sport/football/news/brendan-rodgers-liverpool-future-not-5792732

Both by the same writer.  ::)

Ha, bloody clueless journalists. If they all guess at something different, then maybe one of them will actually be right.

Well i'm still stunned that Rodgers is still in place, but from what i read in Koptalk below...then it only looks like a question of time if the club is sold...Klopp and Ancellotti come to mind...

EXCLUSIVE: FSG ready to sell Liverpool Football Club

Fenway Sports Group (FSG) are ready to cash in on a sale of Liverpool Football Club, if a suitable deal can be negotiated.

The American owners are pressing ahead with expanding the stadium but intend to cut short their stay much sooner than anticipated, possibly following reports that Financial Fair Play rules are to be relaxed.

It has always been our belief that FSG would try and sell the club once they had tidied up the books and improved the stadium. The main stand is progressing well and additional stadium work could still follow. Normal operations are likely to continue for some time as no timescale has been provided but they are willing to exit now and that's something we didn't expect to hear just yet.

KOPTALK has been informed that a potential buyer is currently investigating a takeover with sources claiming that talks are at an advanced stage. Whether or not FSG will proceed with this option we simply do not know.

Sources also claim that FSG will not authorise any significant spending above the club's normal budget and that major club decisions will continue to be postponed. An internal 'lock down' on communication from within the club will remain in place, we can only assume as a result of this interested party sniffing around us. (ED: 'Lock down' explained ... we were informed several weeks ago that the club's press office had been instructed to issue no comments during the ongoing media attention surrounding the end of season review, Rodgers' position, potential replacements, the transfer committee, coaching changes etc).

As yet there have been no official announcements relating to the dismissals of Colin Pascoe and Mike Marsh and no credible news as yet with regards their replacements although that should be resolved soon.

Manager Brendan Rodgers has remained in place but few believe he is actually safe, especially while Jurgen Klopp is looming in the background.

Chief executive Ian Ayre could leave the club in the not too distant future which could depend on whether or not he takes up one of the two job offers that he has on his desk, both of which are from existing major club sponsors. As yet it would appear he hasn't made a decision although he doesn't seem in a rush to jump ship. His work schedule is continuing as normal.

It is claimed that FSG want to leave the transfer committee in place but there have been rumours of a director of football coming in to work with a new manager at a later date, should Rodgers eventually be canned. However we're now dubious about such claims as a result of these developments. Changing the manager during a potential sale period wouldn't make sense. If that were to happen it would signal to us that any interested parties had left the table although some supporters may want to believe that new owners were inbound if a new man was appointed.

There's a lot of ifs and buts plus speculation relating to various issues concerning the club but we have no doubts that FSG are currently looking to sell. We don't expect to see anything imminently but we would urge you to continuing examining all club decisions much more thoroughly as the year progresses, something we've been advising since the club's end of season review.

Although not huge fans of FSG we don't consider them bad owners, we just don't consider them to be great owners either. New owners don't mean better owners and that's something we need to consider before approving a change.

So let me get this straight.....FSG have spent 5 years to just now getting the stadium re-done and getting all the commercial deals into place just to sell it?

I don't think so and what you have posted has not substantiated to it.

I'm not stunned Rodgers is still in place because he was always going to have a final opportunity. Which 15/16 is for him. A bad start and he'll be gone before Christmas though.

This is how I'd line up the team:-


------------------Mignolet------------------


---Clyne-----Skrtel-------Sakho-----Moreno------


---------------------Lucas----------------------------

------------Henderson------Milner---------------------

--------Firmino----------------------Coutinho------------

---------------------Benteke--------------------------------

We could have 3 formations in one single game:- 4-3-2-1, 4-3-3 and 3-4-3.
