Brendan Rodgers could learn a thing or two from Vito Corleone

Brendan Rodgers has been doing a great job in the second half of the season. He’s managed to get the season going and a place for top four finish is still within Liverpool’s grasp. A task that seemed so unachievable for the reds back in December. Granted, Signor Rodgers has had an impressive stint but if he’s to be the true Don of Merseyside, then I fear he has to take life lessons from Vito Corleone and implement them into …
2 Sides to Brendan: Has He Done Enough?

2 Sides to Brendan: Has He Done Enough?

Over Brendan Rodgers' time at Liverpool, his contrasting results have left many to wonder whether he has a future at the helm of the Reds. So, does he? …
Personnel Over System - Why the Current Form?

Personnel Over System - Why the Current Form?

"It's the new defensive coach that we got in that everybody thought we needed. That has done the trick"
- Brendan Rodgers after the win at Southampton. Basking in his own glory post-Southampto similarly to a man embracing the smell of his own fart. We witnessed a very smug Brendan Rodgers deliver that quote with a wry smile at the end of it. You can't argue with the facts, Liverpool have been infinitely better defensively since the change …
The Liverpool Screw Job | Lovren Vs Sakho

The Liverpool Screw Job | Lovren Vs Sakho

The Liverpool changing room. Morale is high after the late Tottenham win but that's not enough for Brendan Rodgers. The owners are in town and he needs to make an impression. Brendan: "Listen, lads, fantastic effort tonight. It's a great win, you all showed great technical ability. Even you, Dejan, you made no mistakes when coming on so the #LFCFamily will be pleased." The players all have a laugh whilst the manager flashes back to eating a Haribo tangfastic and …
Memoirs of a Brendan Rodgers Disciple

Memoirs of a Brendan Rodgers Disciple

August 31st 2014 I knew it. I bloody well knew it! “Brendan Rodgers relied on Luis Suarez for the success of last season” they said. HA! Be the Lord, the Reds were as good as last year today. Liverpool went to White Hart Lane and told Tottenham “we are just better than you lot.” And we are. So much better. We might not reach the title this year, but top four is ours. Easily third, that’s for sure. Maybe second …
Looking Between The Lines | Liverpool FC Tactical Analysis

Looking Between The Lines | Liverpool FC Tactical Analysis

In modern day football, the space between the lines is one of the most key areas, if not the key area in attack. One of the most simple reasons for this is that a player who positions himself in this space is theoretically unmarked. If they are to be marked it generally requires one or two defending players to momentarily break shape to go and confront him, thereby leaving space elsewhere. A player of course doesn't have to be marked …
Fed Up of Transition at Liverpool FC

Fed Up of Transition at Liverpool FC

Here we go again….another transitional period awaits Liverpool Football Club. In fact, for the past 20 years Liverpool Football Club and the word transition have been together hand in hand. Only seven months have passed since our title charge and we now need to replace our legendary captain in a few months time. We may also need to find ourselves a new manager considering a fourth place finish is looking a remote possibility based on our inconsistent form. Furthermore, the …
Liverpool FC Recruitment Analysis: Watching the Watchmen

Liverpool FC Recruitment Analysis: Watching the Watchmen

After an exciting summer spending money on shiny new players, Liverpool FC set fans' pulses racing with the promise of defensive leadership, pace up front, guile in midfield, and those full-backs we’ve been looking for since the days of Stig Inge Bjørnebye and Rob Jones… Over a hundred million pounds were spent replacing Suarez, but not replacing him, as his only true replacement in terms of player profile (hard working, skillful, South American, high profile, tries crazy stuff) went to …
Brendan the Brave or The Cowardly Lion?

Brendan the Brave or The Cowardly Lion?

Liverpool fans finally enjoyed a weekend of football after Glen Johnson’s late winner against Stoke at Anfield. It was a much needed three points and relieved some of the pressure mounting on Brendan Rodgers. Rodgers has faced criticism from all directions including many fans who have questioned his tactics and team selections. Over the past few weeks fans have taken to social media to label Rodgers a coward and to show some balls. So what does Rodgers need to do …

"I've got 99 Problems but White Teeth Ain't 1" | Brendan Rodgers

Okay, maybe 99 is a bit of an over-exaggeration but Brendan is in a bit of a pickle, one which, if we’re honest, is of his own making. He has just embarked on a spending spree that the likes of Jose Mourinho or Manuel Pellegrini would be proud of. You can say that we recouped a large proportion of our outlay from the Luis Suarez sale but apart from Mario Balotelli, who have we brought in that we wouldn’t have …
