I'm sick to death of hearing the same bullshit buzzwords from him every week.

 

"Gave everything"

"Can't fault players"

"Good return"

"Outstanding"

 

Fuck off.

Spot on - he's still kidding the bollocks off some people though but for how long.

Brendan has looked and sounded like a fraud for a while. Our attacking prowess last year belied it but his frankly hilarious transfer dealings and flagrant inability to come up with any kind of structure, strategy or game plan, coupled with his ridiculous personal life, are revealing a poor, poor manager. I'm sick to death of it. He has Luis Suarez to thank that he's stayed in his job so long.

Virtually the same script every week just changes the opositions name,bluff merchant.

 

Rodgers bingo:

 

The players gave absolutely everything.

 

Gerrard was absolutely outstanding.

 

Great effort from the group 

 

Great character shown from the lads. 

 

Can't fault the performance at all.

 

We were very solid and resolute 

 

They're a hard team to beat

 

They've got wonderful players and an outstanding manager

 

It'll be Bournemouth are formidable opposition next week.

I did say in the Summer he should thank Luis for his new contract.

I think it's a mistake to continue to exclude Borini from the match day 18. Whatever else he is, he is a striker that knows the Premiership and you could see we had no options from the bench in the last 10 minutes. We've got no excuses for not using our bench better than we have this season.

Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers: "I thought the players gave everything and in the second half we looked like we could make breakthrough. Sunderland proved this year that they are a hard team to beat. I can't fault the players. They needed a wee bit of luck and it didn't come. If you can't win it's important you don't lose. We've taken seven points from nine this week which is a good return for us.

 

"Stevie (Gerrard) coming on gave everyone a lift. I thought him and Raheem (Sterling) were outstanding. It was a solid performance and we just couldn't quite make the breakthrough.

 

"When I looked at it (Sterling's penalty appeal) again afterwards, closely, Wes Brown has a dangle for the ball and misses it. Raheem, as he comes down, lands on Wes Brown. I don't think it was a dive and I don't think it was a penalty. I think the referee made the right decision."

Nothing at all wrong with what Rodgers has said here and nothing untrue apart from sterling being outstanding but he's clearly just trying to encourage a player who played well, needs confidence and will be key for Rodgers and the team for the remainder of the season, again nothing wrong with that Imo.

Rodgers is only hurting himself. Lambert was poor today and there was no striker on the bench to replace him with. Borini would offer more pace and movement up front, either with or instead of Lambert.

It's weird that in Rodgers first season he left us horribly short upfront cause Carroll was a slow carthorse who didn't suit the way he wanted to play.  Fast forward two years and he's signed two cumbersome oafs as our only back up to Sturridge.  Over the three seasons to date there's been more wrong and more head scratching decisions from him than good.

Not looking forward to going to united next week.

 

hopefully some euro joy midweek.

 

Today was what I feared: lets get this one out of the way ahead of the fabled big European night.

 

I really thought rodgers had nailed that sort of complacency to the wall but it was there for all to see today.

Huge week coming up, this week was just an aperitif for the main course of Basel and United.

Two defeats and our season could be over, along with Rodgers Reign

Fuck knows but Brendan's pet Henderson was garbage again and unbelievably has been rewarded with the armband.

 

A massive bottler, Henderson.  And stinking the place out as well.  Captain material?  

A massive bottler, Rodgers.  And stinking the place out as well.  Manager material?

Since the  loss to Palace it looks like Rodgers is picking teams and tactics to save his job rather than go for the jugular and move up the table.

 

7 from a possible 12 against relegation fodder. A good team will kill us, the mancs will beat us.

hes said as much. its back to basics stuff with lucas in front of the settled pairing of skrtel and toure.

 

we re far less open than we were which is good but not as easy on the eye but if we continued to be open with our inability to score then we d have even less points and be in even bigger trouble.

I don't care really but I'd report this post for being the worst thing written here in 2014, it's that bad. I mean there surely ARE limits of being clueless.

There is nothing right with it, he is insulting every fans intelligence. I'd prefer it is he just didn't bother opening his mouth if he isn't going to be truthful. Not saying he has to go OTT on criticism or picking out certain players, just a simple "That is still not good enough and I'm bitterly disappointed to have dropped another 2 points at home" would do.

I don't think it's all that surprising that a 32-year-old wouldn't be up to starting 4 games in such a short space of time. Rodgers does this a lot, though - he decides he doesn't fancy someone and that's that. There's nothing wrong with being decisive, but when a team who has only scored 7 goals in 7 home games doesn't come equipped with a second striker, that's counter-productive.

I'd class it as plain madness by a manager who has lost the plot myself.

    • Well that’s just bollocks as Rafa had left the club before Comolli had joined. 
    • Jurgen Klopp has given little credence to those individuals who are using any possible reason to downplay the achievements of Liverpool this season.

      The Reds are just four wins away from their first league triumph in three decades, and are on the verge of wrapping up the title in the quickest period of time in the modern era, currently holding a 22 point lead over Man City.

      But as recent games against relegation threatened sides such as Norwich and West Ham have shown, there is certainly no such thing as a easy win.

      The fact that this team has only dropped points once this campaign is remarkable, however there is a theory around that it is to do with the failings of their main rivals, not so much the overall strength of Liverpool.

      Speaking ahead of the game against Watford on Saturday evening, Klopp was having none of that.

      The Daily Mail reported the manager as saying:

      “I couldn't care less (what people say).

      “Look, it is completely normal. 

      “I don't think that we should have any concern for things like this. If other people think like that – if they think City are not as good as they were – they ARE!

      “They have scored a little less goals than us, conceded a few more, and if you look why it is clear they have been missing some players. 

      “The other teams are really strong too. 

      “Yes, Bayern beat Tottenham and Chelsea [in the Champions League] but they are really strong over a season.

      “Yes, they (Spurs and Chelsea) have had some problems, that's all true. 

      “But in the moment that you play them you don't feel that they have these problems.

      “The points they have, we have no influence on that apart from the games when we play them.

      “So it says nothing about the quality of the Premier League, especially when you look at City v Real Madrid. 

      “I know that people look at these things and you saw that one of the best teams in the world maybe in the moment and City were clearly better so that shows as well how strong the League is.  

      Despite the outstanding consistency and success of the past two seasons, Klopp is certainly not one to rest on his laurels and be content.

      “There is still a lot of work to do and a lot of space for improvement.

      “You see our games and result wise it looks okay but performance-wise there is a lot of space for improvement. 

      “That is what we work on and try constantly through the week.

      “Result consistency is maybe difficult to improve because that is close to perfection, obviously, but it is possible to improve the performances in all departments. 

      “There are so many things you can improve that that will never end.”

    • This will become a worry soon. Fucking Ludogorets players travelling to the San Siro stadium with face masks on. Its all becoming a bit hysterical; some more reported cases in the UK and all bets are off. Got to get this wrapped up in the coming weeks. Bomb out the Cup and get this wrapped up in the next 3 weeks.
