Brendan Rodgers - the Story of his Managerial Career

Brendan Rodgers - the Story of his Managerial Career

BRENDAN Rodgers has grown into one of the most exciting and respected managers in the Premier League. The Northern Irish born man grew up in Ballymena where he learnt and played football with his local side. In 1990, at the age of 17, Rodgers moved to Reading to further his career but it was halted instantaneous through injury and he failed to make an appearance for the English club. In 1995, after refusing to let football out of his life, …
Tactical Analysis: Liverpool 4 Borussia Dortmund 0

Tactical Analysis: Liverpool 4 Borussia Dortmund 0

It is important to preface this analysis by saying the Bundesliga season doesn’t start until the week after the Premier League, so Borussia Dortmund were seven days behind in their physical preparation. However, at times, Rodgers’ Liverpool made them look like they had never played football before, with the exquisite movement, technical ability and break-neck speed of the attacking play. Line-Ups: Liverpool:  Mignolet, Johnson, Skrtel, Lovren, Manquillo, Gerrard, Henderson, Sterling, Coutinho, Can, Sturridge. Subs: Brad Jones, Jose Enrique, Toure, Lambert, …

Simon Mignolet - Is he still good enough? A comparison to rivals

Simon Mignolet - Is he still good enough? A comparison to rivals

Earlier in the season, following Liverpool's 2-1 defeat at Manchester City, I wrote an article looking at Simon Mignolet's first season up to that point as the Reds' first choice goalkeeper following his summer move from Sunderland. At the time he had just made himself public enemy number one to a group of fans (oh how there have been many in that position this season), and questions were being asked. Since that article was published, have his performances improved? Have …

Expectation was high after strong previous season with many expecting Liverpool to kick on after narrowly missing out on the title to Manchester United. Liverpool lost the game 2-1, a sign of things to come with the …
Simon Mignolet: A potential problem averted

Simon Mignolet: A potential problem averted

Summer signing Simon Mignolet slotted straight into the Liverpool setup, and has been one of the key players for the Reds so far this season. For goalkeepers, they're usually a commonly-used scapegoat for a lot of mishaps that go wrong in a campaign, especially those chasing the top places. As mentioned previously, not being in the limelight is the biggest recognition that the Belgian could have wished for. It's easy for the finger to be pointed at the new goalkeeper …
