Does Rodgers deserve another season.

FSG SACK BRENDAN RODGERS AND THEY DID IT LAST YEAR

 

Last month we brought you the incredible revelation that Raheem Sterling was lying during his interview with the BBC. Today reports are he is asking for a move which is something we stated he would MONTHS AGO.

 

However there’s a massively more shocking story coming out of Liverpool today and the revelations will blow Liverpool’s fans minds. Two very sources have alleged the following.

 

- Brendan Rodgers was sacked last November. He will face the same indignity as Kenny Dalglish having to fly to the U.S and receive his p45 Wednesday 3rd June 2015

 

- FSG had a crisis meeting last year and blamed themselves for not having a contingency plan for this season going so badly

 

- With so many new signings having loyalty to Rodgers and senior players like Gerrard, Toure and Johnson having excellent relationships it was decided the sacking couldn’t take place until they had left

 

- Gerrard’s influence in the dressing room became a big worry for FSG and his position amongst supporters and it was decided he would have to leave

 

- FSG have been sounding out replacements for Rodgers since last year

 

- From November on there has been a transfer ban which led to no January activity and pulling out of the race to sign Depay late on

 

- FSG have been using the press to leak stories about reported interest in Rodgers transfer targets with no intention of signing them to keep Rodgers in the dark

 

- Liverpool are already identifying a different set of targets that Rodgers has not approved and is unaware are even being discussed

 

- Klopp has refused to speak with FSG until the season is over and said he will not allow his team to be distracted with a Cup Final approaching

 

- However his agent has been in discussion with LFC for months and has already provided a list of targets

 

- Feeling inside Anfield recent slump is because the players and the staff know the writing is on the wall for Rodgers

 

- FSG deliberately sabotaged the Sterling deal. The offer was nothing like £100,000 per week and even with potential bonus incentives did not reach that figure.

 

- FSG are aware changing manager is expensive and agreed last November to sell Sterling to find the new managers spending spree though they hadn’t identified manager at that time

 

- Rodgers recently had a furious exchange with a staff member when in front of the players his methods were questioned

 

- FSG did not attend Steven Gerrard’s last game out of a lack of respect for Gerrard but simply because Rodgers has made it clear he is looking to speak to them face to face as he is aware there are two agendas being pushed at Anfield.

 

Now we don’t even know where to start with this? There’s almost too much to go on and it sounds like an episode of Dynasty or Dallas back in the 1980’s. The source we have is rock solid but we have to be careful and put this is what they are alleging and not the opinions of Blind Religion.

 

The United States laws are far more aggressive over stories like this and to be honest we were due to run this story yesterday but have been up debating all night if we should for our own safety.

 

However the news is too huge. We were told that all through Liverpool’s resurgence of form after a dreadful start there was absolutely no chance FSG were going to turn it around bar Champions League qualification. Even then after Liverpool’s performance in the competition Tom Werner is the one who flatly refused to accept LFC can allow that to happen again.

 

Since then it has been one long rollercoaster of FSG engineering Rodgers sacking. The decision to encourage Gerrard to move on we’re told wasn’t financial or football related but his relationship with Rodgers had become so close they were concerned about sacking Rodgers with Gerrard still there.

 

Players like Johnson and Toure have had support from Rodgers despite poor form and they too have influence in the dressing room. We were told that Rodgers and Toure did have an exchange but that exchange was because they’re actually quite close and felt they could. It was club officials that leaked the story to drive a wedge between Toure and Rodgers and further lessen Rodgers hold over the dressing room.

 

FSG are refusing to negotiate with Skrtel until the new manager arrives. However they will pursue targets such as Milner and Ings simply on the basis of value. Now if all of this sounds dramatic the fact Liverpool are the ones who at the start of the season sabotaged the Sterling deal puts the whole thing in a new light.

 

We’ve been told in no uncertain terms it was absolutely clear FSG as soon as they decided to oust Rodgers and set about making that job as easy as possible also decided to manage the situation with the fans and how to finance it. There has been a consistent media campaign against Sterling. Ex players talking about his agent leaking stories when in fact we’ve heard it was FSG leaking stories about Sterling’s agent leaking stories.

 

Its mind blowing stuff and soap opera-esque. However FSG knew the fans loved Sterling and they also knew that Sterling would be the best way to finance a huge spending spree for the new manager. They decided that the fans would accept Rodgers departure, Sterling’s departure and Gerrard’s departure if they could drive a wedge between the fans and Sterling and after all three have departed embark on a huge spending spree.

 

That’s absolutely the plan we’ve been told will happen. Rodgers will be gone, Sterling will be gone and this was all decided last year. Liverpool have forced Sterling’s hand and he will ask for the move as his wages remain low and his contract runs down. FSG will make a statement saying due to his contract situation they had no choice but to try and get the best price they can.

 

Some fans won’t be sad to see Rodgers gone and some will. All fans will be sad to see Gerrard leave. Some fans earlier in the season would have raged at Sterling leaving and said more evidence LFC are a selling club but the situation has been so expertly managed by FSG that Liverpool fans will come out of this with full support behind FSG.

 

We have no idea if that’s right but we’ve been told FSG have absolutely no worries that they will get rid of Rodgers, get rid of the remaining influences in the dressing room, cash in on Sterling and use that money and the extra TV revenue to spend another 100m this summer.

 

The feeling in the United States is that they won’t have to spend a penny this summer but will be heralded as the best owners in the Premier League as they put extra TV money and players sales to a pot of 100m. What set of fans are going to moan about a 100m spending spree? Unless it turns out like the last 100m Liverpool spent.

 

more evidence LFC are a selling club but the situation has been so expertly managed by FSG that Liverpool fans will come out of this with full support behind FSG.

If they hire Klopp and support him in the transfer market, I'd be willing to support FSG* for at least two seasons, for at least until I see the full completion of the regenerated Anfield. I will even write some positive comments about them from now and then.

 

That's how desperate I am to see Liverpool succeed. 

 

 

 

*This official nightcat promise EXCLUDES Ayre from the deal. I will continue expressing my opinion on him regardless the rest.

I would bring Rafa in as manager and let Rodgers rot in the reserves.

 

I'd make sure we keep Sterling by making him manager.  Rafa could be his assistant and we could get Konchesky back as DoF with Poulsen as head scout.  That'll show 'em.

You know, you kid but I reckon we actually have pretty good personnel to suit a Rafa-managed style.

 

Can - Carvalho

 

Ibe - Coutinho - Sterling

 

Sturridge

 

I reckon we'd see absolutely ridiculous stats from Coutinho in that kind of lineup.  

 

Just needs a Carvalho or some other destroyer in CM and maybe a better player than Ibe/Markovic so those are the players on the bench.  Though if Rafa can get us 2nd with a good-but-not-great Riera playing almost every game, he could probably do it with Ibe and Markovic.

Sturridge upfront, what could possibly go wrong.

Brendan Rodgers will have to prove he is the right man to take Liverpool forward in an end-of-season review with Fenway Sports Group (FSG).

 

The club’s American owner will look to re-establish common ground with the manager after a season that has fallen short of expectations.

 

Although FSG has no intention of dispensing with Rodgers’s services, the outcome of the meeting will be pivotal in determining how the club goes about addressing the failings that have resulted in such a disappointing campaign.

 

The main aim of the summit, which will see Mike Gordon, FSG’s most influential figure at Anfield, hold face-to-face talks with Rodgers, will be to learn from the mistakes that caused Liverpool to fail to win a trophy for a third successive season and miss out on Champions League qualification.

High on the agenda will be the need to address the disconnect between transfer strategy and team selection, with FSG hoping Rodgers is ready to convince them of his willingness to persevere with several signings who have yet to make the desired impact.

 

Rodgers’s lack of faith in a number of the players Liverpool signed last summer has become increasingly obvious in recent months with Lazar Markovic, Rickie Lambert, Mario Balotelli, Javier Manquillo, Alberto Moreno and Dejan Lovren all struggling to establish themselves to an extent.

While there is an acceptance that some of last summer’s acquisitions, Balotelli and Lambert in particular, left Rodgers short of the kind of options he needs, there is also a feeling within Liverpool’s hierarchy that such failings do not justify a season of underachievement after investing about £110 million in players.

 

This year, Tom Werner, the Liverpool chairman, said that it was “important” to maintain Liverpool’s mid-season momentum and achieve a top-four finish, admitting it would be a “disappointment” if those objectives were not reached. In the event, neither target has been reached with Liverpool winning only twice, against Newcastle United and Queens Park Rangers, in their past eight league games.

 

End-of-season reviews are standard practice for Liverpool under FSG’s ownership and although it is routine for the manager’s performance to be scrutinised, Rodgers will go into his latest assessment in the knowledge that Liverpool have fallen short of the place in the top four that was viewed as the minimum acceptable requirement at the start of this season.

 

Although there is no sense that Rodgers will, in effect, be auditioning again for a position he already occupies, FSG is looking to him to show them that it remains on the same page going forward and to justify its belief that he is the right manager to implement the model it remains confident can allow Liverpool to become consistently competitive at home and abroad.

In keeping with that aim, Liverpool remain determined to keep Raheem Sterling regardless of the winger’s growing desire to leave, with Manchester City understood to be preparing an offer that would make him one of their highest-paid players.

 

That position will be reaffirmed when Sterling’s agent, Aidy Ward, holds talks with Rodgers and Ian Ayre, Liverpool’s chief executive, on Friday. At the meeting, which is taking place at Ward’s request, he is expected to inform Liverpool of his client’s wish to secure a transfer this summer but the Merseysiders will not sanction any departure.

Liverpool remain hopeful that they will be able to convince the England forward to commit his future to them regardless of his agitation to move, although that position does seem optimistic given the indications emerging from Sterling’s camp suggesting he wishes to leave at the earliest possible opportunity.

From Barrett's articles appears that there is no hope.

 

We'd be better prepare ourselves for more shit seasons, at least until FSG decide that their commodity has matured and it is the right time to sell.

Rodgers has bought badly and wasted a lot of FSG cash. You don't need a 150 page dossier for that.

No room for the club captain in there.

That reads like someone got a Cornation Street script and changed all the names to football managers. Who's shagging Sam Allardyce?

Heard his mouth is always full of Gregg's stuff
