    We were a one man team, that man doesn't play for us any more.

    Once Skertal, Gerrard and Johnson get dropped.....and that time is fast approaching....that is the time when the excuses will run out and points on the board will matter.

    Anyone hoping or thinking Rodgers will get sacked on the back of a loss to the CL champs is smoking Colorado grass.

    I need to see how we are when Sturridge returns and because last season we didn't really click into gear until December. I'm keeping my own council until then.

    I'm not saying sack him. I'm just pointing out that he's the only person that can be blamed.

    Sack Rodgers, give me a break....

    He is the best thing to happen to this club in a long while. But I agree he needs help with his defence. Is it time to bring someone like Thommo or Carra to assist him. Say what you like about Thommo and his disipline but Houlliers defence was organised and that is down to him.

    We could do worse. Oh and also get us a good GK coach ffs

    I admire your guts to say this since you will get slaughtered. BUT, were you saying any of this last season? Or has the first 3 months of this season yielded evidence that makes the case compelling only now?

    I don't agree with 100% of what BR has done but I feel relaxed when he's with us. It's like having a star player on the pitch. Even when we are poor he's able to own up to failures without losing the dressing room or going overboard.
    Any resemblance to real persons, living or dead, is purely coincidental.

    Suarez is a fantastic talent, probably the 3rd best player in the world. But it's a bit unfair to say we were a 1 man team last season, yes he was a massive factor but we still had a lot of other good performers

    Guys, quite please. We are not Liverpool of 70ties or 80ties. Can we buy Kroos or new Suarez? We are somewhere between Porto and Tottenham. Last year was crazy but now for us is to win with Hull City. Times are chaning against us.

    Are you trying to tell me that this is just tonight against super Madrid?
    How did Real Madrid do against Ludogorets again? Oh yeah, they just scraped past as well. It Happens, or have you forgotten how we just scraped out of the groupstages in 04/05?

    Yes we have had a poor start to the league, but we are hardly in the relegation zone or already out of Europe are we? Although the way some are on here I wonder if they almost want to be.

    So you think our manager isn't good enough but you don't want to sack him?

    I think he got the job about 5 years too early.

    Compare him to Ancelotti - and remember Ancelotti was sacked by the Chavs for finishing 2nd...

    No but he will give us a different dynamic and more pace and flair up front. If we are still poor in December then I will make my thoughts about BR public.

    Well I think that it is revealing itself quite obviously. i would have done things differently. I would have played our world class players in the positions they play best and then the others around them but hey.. thats just me.. I would have played from our strengths not from the diagram I discovered. I would also have more discipline in defense and in attack i would press higher and get more bodies forward at least 4 because those defenders at Real Madrid are simply very good and No matter how much magic Mario has he never had a chance against these lads alone. No wonder his head was hanging. it was hopless.. We do not need so many new players.. I would say three and they would need to be over 27 years old and not older than 30 this is to add the depth of mentality. To carry the team up when its low.. And then.. We need a Lobotomy and a brain implant for Rodgers or just simply a new manager. A manager that knows how to utilize his players. If we can afford to waste 120 mil on something he doesnt know how to use we can sure pay someone who can...

    I have to say, I looked at Koeman jealously over the weekend, I believed we had the 2nd or 3rd best manager in the Prem. Now I fear he's 4th, but its early days, and a lot has changed, plus major motivational problems in the team.

    Yeah, that was some serious idiocy from Abramovich. They haven't won the league since.

    Rodgers has cosntantly said that his best work is done out on the training field and compared to last season that has been limited so his inustruction and methods are hampered, now add new players some experienced quite a few not and you are always going to have problems, he isn't a manager that is still learning himself, it's a team that's still developing and needing to be better.

    I'm sure it will come.

    Do people realise how young Rodgers actually is and how inexperienced he is compared to nearly every manager he is facing at the moment?

    It's poor signings that are costing him this season. I've said it before, we should have flat refused to sell Suarez.

    At the end of the season. Not when we're doing better than all our rivals barring Chelsea & City.

    Mignolet, Johnson, Balotelli are not good enough neither is achteburg who is somehow still at this club.

    Defensively we are comolet shambles

    Gerrard is finished as a genuine starter but would be a good sub

    Rodgers tactically is woeful and has been ever since he's been here and was bailed out last term by are amazing strike force.

    I'm not saying sack him but I have more doubts about him now that I ever did and this season is rightly make or break for him
