Jamie Redknapp and his dad would make a good manager team.
I think they should have to fight Roy Hodgson and his boy Sammy Lee for the job.

Dreams, my friend. Dreams...
I wouldn't be entirely amazed to find Steven Gerrard being asked to consider backing out of LA to "save the club" all romantic and heroic-like, but he'd have to be batshitcrazy.

I'm at least 150% sure Rodgers is gone though. He has to be. There's just no coming back from that. An honourable man - good luck finding one in football - would have quit after that. Resignation or seppuku*, anyway.

You must be devastated about what's happening at your club.
You seem to be taking it well.
OR... are you our johnnowhite?
I was expecting 4th or 5th at the start of the season, with 5th being the more realistic and 4th being, realistically, the best we could do.

The only thing that constantly annoys me is our manager playing players out of positions.

When does any manager ever resign in football?

Let alone egotistical bullshit merchants like Rodgers.

All jokes aside and it has been beautiful.

Team and Club are both in complete disarray.

Well they definitely are, because the 5th and 6th placed sides get a spot regardless. Even if they finished 7th they would have qualified, as long as Arsenal beat Villa in the FA Cup final.

I can't wait to hear Carragher talking about this - partly because he is a Liverpool-fan so this will have hurt so much - partly because he hates when players don't give everything - and partly because he doesn't hold back when a and b happens at the same time

Just seen Stoke's goals, the Scousers are in serious trouble. That's a club falling into a crisis, almost entirely of its own making.
If i got a pound for everytime i heard that.. :lol:

Nothing new here Phil. One season of doin better & all the scousers are on the "next year is our year" delusional bandwagon.

This time is somewhat different though, so that's what i think you're referring to?

Gerrards gone (low point for the fans). Sterling's situation is causing serious negativity. Rodgers is Rodgers (no need to elaborate). The fans must still feel like shit after blowing the league last season. The team has been in total disarray most of this season & thats after spunkin millions on duff players that will never be good enough & Coutinho (their best player by a country mile) will maybe want out - much like Sterling does.

I'm f*cking delighted & long may it continue. F*ck them & their seemingly hating United more than they love Liverpool mentality.. :devil:

Agree with some of your sentiments but my issue with the Scousers here has been going on a few months.

Back in February I saw them play Besiktas away; wrote next day about them being a pretty shoddy team and was slated by Barney Rubble and the rest of the Scouses here. They actually believed that side was going places after they beat City but they couldn't see their deeper problems. Then they got hit by us and have slipped ever since.

Their biggest problems this season have been Slippy's permanent leaving ceremony season, Rodgers crazy statement, Sterling's contract, and the failure of the new signings. I got slated for saying this by these Scouses.

Now they have let in 10 goals and scored 3 in three games. To my mind that harks back to the Besiktas game when they looked like dross. The goals today exposed their defence as amateurish. For Rodgers to mention his job being on the line after that defeat, signposts a team in crisis with deeper problems than just that defeat.

I think you agreed with most of my sentiments tbh man :)

No-one wants to believe that their team is on a massive slide, but you've gotta be realistic & not follow the club with blind faith & accepting no plausible / constructive criticism by opposition fans, or even your own fellow fans for that matter.

There's many on here that do that aswell & continue to think we're only a few signings away from winning the league :houllier::wenger:.

I dont want to get into that. I just want to dwell on how Harry Kewell is not a prophet: http://www.dailymail.co.uk/columnists/article-229604/Harry-tips-Fergie-suffer-downturn.html :D

He might be an absolute bastard but these last two seasons have shown that Suarez is an invaluable bastard.

I think Rodgers hoped to build a new team around Slippy but never envisaged how things turned out. Their season started with the CL, then shifted to Europa, and then the FA cup but really it became one long testimonial of last games for Slippy. It was high risk and Slippy showed just how weak he was alone to carry the burden of two seasons running.

We had a high risk strategy of splashing out and building around Rooney. TBH we scraped together what was needed but most of the season we've been poor to average. Both clubs need to do rapid building during the summer but they will be without Slippy, while we will still have Rooney. To early to judge but I wonder if we don't fall into the trap of over burdening a single player.

I don't think it's down to a few signings, we need a complete overhaul and a reconfiguration of the squad.

If Emre Can had stayed in Leverkusen this season, I'd bet his name would've come up at least once, in our conversations about Van Gaal wanting a new number 6 or number 8 midfielder. He was pretty good in the Bundesliga playing in midfield.

Quite why he is turning up at right back only Rodgers knows.

Modern football and all this about playing the ball from the back.

I remember back then around the time you are referring to, these same Scousers were trying to convince us that Sakho was a talented defensive beast..I've still yet to see this...

Might be his tendency of playing German with turkish roots out of position. Still remember the disaster of him playing the deep lying midfielder Sahin in the offensive midfield or even on the wing.

On the bright side of things, as much as this defeat vs. Stoke might hurt right now, it could be the final nail in the coffin for Rodgers, which in turn could set things in motion that could help Liverpool in the long run. Jürgen Klopp had a soft spot for Liverpool for years and if he does not want to take a break after this season, Pool might be his most likeliest destination.

So brenda got found out for what he really is? LOL

He's not a bad manager, he's good, but after his glorious finish last season (which was a fluke, considering where they are at the moment) he should learn a lesson or two, that they're far from finished article, and should just keep a low profile and keep building a solid squad to claw back the table one spot at a time, a gradual increase and not a one season wonder.

The amount of bragging he spouts against Southampton, Hotspur, and how he talk himself big is starting to bite him in the arse, even his own players are starting to doubt his ability. Football and especially man management is a delicate thing to manage, you have to be confident at times (e.g. Moyes last 2 season) and at the same time you'd have to lower down the expectation, and a good manager worth their salt knows when to inflate and deflate things (e.g. Mourinho last season when he said Chelsea weren't ready, it's a good example of a fair judgment, and nobody would claim he's clueless and defeatist). The best thing to do when you're not sure which way to go is to just shut up and do your job, mouthing around other teams you have no business with is just asking for trouble.

He would have fare better if he downplay their achivement last season, while acknowledging the potential, and keeping the players ego on the ground. Inflate them too much and it will have an adverse effect by the time they lost a match, it took Ferguson years to build that resilient aura, it took more than a season to make OT a fortress, much more than a season of football.

I do think he's a 4th - 7th manager at best, and whether he have the time to turn things around and whether he's good enough to get a grip on their dressing room is another thing.

How he ever gets picked in front of Koscielny for France is a mystery of our time.
