  1. I would say Spurs is down from Liverpool, but then I admit I'm biased. (yeah I know they've finished above us 5/6 years, but that's partly the reason he was sacked) He apparently turned down spurs when he took the job in the first place. He's failed at Liverpool so of course his next job is a step down. Don't think Spurs will be recruiting for a while, so he's either waiting for a Southampton or the like to have their manager poached by a bigger club, or take over a Newcastle / Villa whist they are in the sh*t and get them back into Europe. I have no idea what his level is though. Given what he did in 2014 I can sort of see him doing really well at a club full of superstars such as chelsea, as long as he wasn't responsible for buying them which he wouldn't be, but then I am not convinced he's actually 'a winner' given his record in big cup ties and must win matches with us, so he might continually fail at the latter stages. Not sure I can see him turning around dysfunctional clubs like Newcastle / Villa either, just can't reconcile his 'philosophy' with the type of player he signed / tried to sign. I'm sure he'll get loads of offers though and won't need to go abroad unless he chooses to.
  2. Klopp said in the presser he had seen the last three games, but if he was asked Sunday he'd have seen the last 20. He's got our worst home and away defeats in 50 years in that that lot, The semi, Hull, Palace the mancs and arsenal. Poor f*cker.
  3. First I heard was Graeme Kelly on Anfield Index podcast, recorded Sunday or Monday. He also posted it on twitter as well as calling BR out last week regardless of derby result. Can't see it anywhere earlier than him.

  5. Probably have a rep for being anti-BR. Never thought he was the best choice, thought he was a gamble we never needed to take with better candidates available. However we are where we are. I am glad he's gone and we can move forward, but I also feel bad for him. I hated RFH, I don't hate Rodgers. I'll clap him when he comes back to Anfield. I am not as convinced as some he'll be a top class manager in 5 or so years, but if he is, fair play. I don't want to watch him learn anymore. I have also criticised FSG for their dithering, in some ways that we are doing this in October rather than May proves me right, but that they have acted so quickly in the international break proves me wrong. So we'll see. I hope more than anything they have a top class manager lined up in the next couple of days. Wouldn't go that far. Though think Klopp would unite the fans. We've been a divided fan base since early Rafa and I think Klopp (and probably only Klopp, though I could see attraction of Ancelotti even if it does feel short term) could bring that back. He's everthing we want in a manager, he's a winner, he's passionate, he's a nutter, he's sarcy, he's win without being the richest in the league, he's has everything early Rafa had (for the Rafalites) but not actually Rafa (for the anti-Rafas), he's foreign, he touched the sign (ergo he 'gets' us) If he comes, we should have a poll, just for the novelty of seeing an (almost) 100% approval rating Not entirely convinced it's going to be him though, think any strong manager means the end for the mediocrity, like Ayre, hence it won't happen whilst they have power. Though, maybe the piss-poor advice to stick with BR in May means they will no longer have that power. Fingers crossed though...
  6. It's also irrelevant to the current situation if he has no idea how he did what he did in 13/14. I'm all for giving BR all the credit in the world for nearly winning the league, but the players he's targeted and / or favoured (Lallana, Lovren, Lambert, Benteke etc) and the tactics he's chosen do not seem conducive to repeating that feat. Everything he's done since May 2014 seems to have moved us further away. It doesn't matter if it was all BR or all Suarez if BR can't get us playing well without one of the best players in the world, we either have to buy one of the best players in the world, or get a different manager. Also, the 'nearly' is too often overlooked in that sentence. Not least by the manager himself. I'd much rather we were holding managers to a standard where trophies were involved. This is Liverpool after all, not Newcastle. Anyone remember that famous Shankly quote: "First is first. Second is nearly, so that sort of counts."
  7. I'm not convinced they have a short list. When they sacked RFH they seemed to surprise themselves with their decision. Kenny had left for a holiday on the other side of the world the day before. They'd been here 4 months by then and couldn't forsee their own decision 24 hours in the future. Then, they had ages to line up Kenny's replacement and yet, due to the very public parade of candidates, we again know they didn't make a move until Kenny's office was empty.
  8. It's what done for RFH. 35'400 for what turned out to be his last home match. http://lfcstats.co.uk/20102011attendances.html
  9. Agree with all of this. Had my doubts and concerns before, but the Villa semi was like the Everton match under RFH. It became beyond doubt that it wasn't going to work. On the TAW point, it would be ridiculous to sack him now after backing him in the summer, but the part that is ridiculous is the backing him, firing him just exposes that decision for what it was. The longer this goes on, the more ridiculous that decision (or lack of decision) looks. If we sack him in 2 matches, or 2 months, it will not only look ridiculous to have backed him in the summer, it will look ridiculous to have written off an entire season to try to avoid looking silly. FSG pretty much got a pass when they wrote off 2010/11 by letting RFH linger well beyond the obvious, I'm not sure they'll be forgiven again, specially if they lose out on the obvious replacements by doing so.
  10. So you seem to think, and mention it every time I post. Like some dull-witted twitter spambot. Put me on ignore then if it annoys you so much, at least we won't have to see your tedious responses to my posts.
  11. It's great if we get to acclimatise him for 6 months, use him instead of Lambert / Borini, just as long as he's not meant to be here to save our season, that wouldn't be fair. Can't really see us signing another forward on top though.
  12. You do realise you are whining about whining? At least if I whine it's on topic.
  13. Get French Football ‏@GFN_France 1m1 minute ago According to the AFP, Liverpool will bring back Divock Origi from Lille early next month, paying €6m to do so. More to follow. So, instead of investing in the world class talent clearly needed for BR's system to work, we are going to rely on a child saving our season. He's scored 4 goals in France this season.
  14. TBF, the idea that we have more than one line of defence, or even one line of defence, is not strongly supported with evidence.
  15. Sky Sports Jounro and LFC fan: Sam Drury ‏@SamDrury11 52m52 minutes ago Sounds like Rodgers' press briefing (off camera) was a lively one. Should be worth keeping an eye out for the papers later. #LFC Sam Drury @SamDrury11 · 48m 48 minutes ago @RaksMistry seems to have had a go at the media.
