This might be a controversial point but i think Rodgers have made a lot of bad decisions in the transfer market for Liverpool.

Fabio Borini
Joe Allen
Oussama Assaidi
Samed Yesil
Daniel Sturridge
Philippe Coutinho
Jordan Ibe
Luis Alberto
Iago Aspas
Kolo Toure
Simon Mignoley
Tiago Ilori
Mamadou Sakho
Emre Can
Rickie Lambert
Adam Lallana
Lazar Marković
Dejan Lovren
Divock Origi
Alberto Moreno
Mario Balotelli

216 mil total spent.

These are the players that Rodgers brought in. Out of this how many do you think have been a successful. Allen, Sturridge, Coutinho, Lallana looks good, Origi, Can and Moreno have potential. Thats about it i think. You would think with more than 2 years at the helm he would have more successful signings.

http://www.lfchistory.net/Transfers/ByManager/25-1
he's a good technical coach, but he's far from proven as a top manager.
+2
From all that I would say Cotinho, Sturridge, Moreno, and maybe Can/Sakho are worth it the rest are trash.

Edit: Trash as in not worth the money or trash business.
+2
Didn't Liverpool players say Ibe was going to be better than Sterling after the pre-season? If he's that good, then why is he regarded as a flop?? Origi, Coutinho, Sturridge and possibly Yesil should not be there
I would argue to the contrary. Coutinho, Sturridge, Mignolet good signings and too early to make a call on any of them, but Lallana, Balotelli, Moreno all have potential to pay off. Yeh hes had some misses, but which manager doesnt? And hes been forced into some of those signings to plug gaps in the awful squad he was left by the mismanagement of Dalgleish, Hodgson and the later years of Benitez.
Sakho is solid. Lovren will be good he just needs to figure out he can't play hyper aggressive against quality competition. He obviously has quality himself. Markovic is way too young and raw to write off.

Everybody has misses. Unfortunately he missed big on Balotelli and IMO it was largely because he didn't understand his own team. Balotelli is a big, powerful forward who doesn't run hard or pressure the ball. That is exactly the wrong type of player for this team. This team succeeds with fast, hard working forwards who work well with teammates. Borini should be starting IMO based on the skill set required.
Allen, Lallana, Origi and Lovren are trash? just cause you're angry over our game vs Madrid doesn't mean you can bash our players, and why this hate for BR all of a sudden? Ofc we would struggle any team would after losing Suarez and having your main goal threat injured the whole season. Despite that we're in the top 5 in the league and 2nd equal in our CL group. Everyone needs to calm the f down ffs...
+1
Origi hasn't been tested in the Premier League, so not enough on him to say either way. I would agree with SIF, the jury is still out on Rodgers as a manager. It's becoming obvious that last season was more Suarez's work than his. The season's not close to being over for Liverpool, and it's far from a disaster, but Rodgers simply still has some proving to do in my opinion.
He has nothing to prove, he proved it all last season. No ordinary manager could take Liverpool from 7th to 2nd, its just plain insulting to BR to credit all his hard work to Suarez.
+3
^Its insulting, but kinda true
+3
The summer signings have been at Liverpool for 2 1/2 months or less but I think its way to early to calling anyone of those players flops. Although how can you blame Rodgers, he brought in a good number of defensive signings that needed to happen, signed future youngsters like Origi,Can, Markovic and Lallana but too bad the best striker available in the market was Balotelli and Rodgers was pressured to bring in a big name. Tough spot to be in.
Until he can do it without Suarez, I'll maintain my opinion that it was more Suarez's doing than his, a one-off. Not insulting his hard work (he's turned Liverpool around and has them playing good football, and he did find ways to incorporate that attack), just questioning him as a consistent top title-winning manager. It's probably an unpopular opinion and you may think that's unfair, but I don't.
I have to say that the Arsenal comeback reminded me of the Famous 3-3 between Liverpool and Milan. It definitely wasn't better than the 2005 final as that would be an insult to football, but I say it is on the same level of excitement, while Arsenal players showed the same level of fight and determination, if not more.
It's Anderlecht dude

What's Anderlecht?
An in-depth quality analysis of Liverpool's defence against Real Madrid in that first half.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ks4bD2RL3dM

I think some of the insightful points made also are applicable to Sunderland's defence against Southampton.

What do you think?
+1
I prefer THAT to the sound of Jamie Redknapp

Can someone explain to me why Ferguson feel the need to burn everyone he ever worked with? He's making himself look bad.

http://www.dailymail.co.uk/sport/football/article-2790686/sir-alex-ferguson-did-not-leave-manchester-united-decline-david-moyes-sacked-team-played-slow.html
+2
agreed, everyone calls him classy, but all these burns are trash moves
+11
What could he have done? Accept the blame and destroy his legacy? Admit that he made the worst signings of recent times apart from the odd good signing? No one in his position would ever do that. Hate the man if you will, but understand his position. Those on top always cover their backs, those who fail, well, lose that privilege.
+1
@LGW That's an explanation, not a justification... Sir Alex has achieved everything and will always be a legend in football... his legacy is secure so I don't see why he has to bad mouth other people.
+3
^ agreed so I really don't understand why he has attempted to burn everyone.
+2
He misses being the center of attention after retirement.
+3
When it come to football he is ruthless and honest. He dosent hold back and that is one of his strengths. He has a massive ego and dosent like to admit when he is wrong. Same old Fergie. People only see the Ferguson thats on TV and the one portrayed through the media but most people who knows him personally talks about a kind and funny guy.

Who has he 'burned' this time? He just said appointing Moyes was the clubs decision and Man Utd werent on the decline. He is just trying to justify his side of things. He didnt badmouth anyone this time.

^ Yaldho Well he is implying that it was all Moyes' fault, and makes him look bad. I think we all know that while Moyes failed spectacularly, at least some of the blame has to be taken by SAF's short term planning in his last 4-5 years. A classier man would not comment on the issue at all, instead of whipping the media's whipping boy.

Anyway, I do understand your main point. Fergie is Fergie -- the good comes with the bad and we just have to accept it.
+3
Thank you Tanmay. I would just say there have been previous great managers who have also written book and have chosen not to take shots at people.
+2
I honestly don't see much wrong. It's not a shot. SAF worked with United for 25 years. Not only this, he fashioned the culture of the club after decades of underachievement. On top of his personality already, he's going to defend the team he built (and to be fair) swept the title with the season before. He's loyal to those players that are loyal to him.

And it's not as if his assessments are wrong. We didn't play with speed last year. United without speed is like a car without wheels, especially to SAF since that's how he built his regime at the club.

Tanmay, it's part of his autobiography. If he didn't comment on it now, for an autobiography to be complete, he surely would have commented on it sometime in the future, especially given the claims regarding his role in "handpicking" Moyes (which he says isn't true). It's not as if he went to The Telegraph and started slagging off Moyes. In fact, SAF has been nothing but supporting of Moyes in public. Honestly, I think this is more of some fans' need to satify a desire to make Fergie look bad for something than it is SAF burning anyone.
+3
Short term planning? All the players sir alex bought for the last 8 or so years has been for the future with the exception of RVP. Look a Van De Gea, Jones, Smalling, Rafael, Buttner, Powell, Hernandez and the player he brought in from the academy.

The truth is Moyes took a well oiled machine and some how made it stop working. even if something was wrong with it all that was needed was a few player who he overlooked in the transfer window to chase targets that we unattainable. for example he passed up on strootman, thiago and kondogbia. 3 players who would have cost us about 40 million total to buy fellaini for 30 million. 3 players who would have been the tweak he needed. Now we are going to have to pay 35 million for each if we were to go after them.
Besides that he had no idea what he was doing and then now to try and take the blame off himself he is saying he inherited a bad team and though we would give him 5 more years to change things around.
there is no way you can wrong sir alex for defending himself.
+1
nobody said what SAF said was incorrect. We all believe what he said, but a classy person would not feel the need to gossip about all these people, gossiping is trashy.
+1
If you agree with what he said, then you wouldn't be calling it a "burn" or a "trash move." He defended his team in an update of an autobiography. Hardly classifies as "gossip", Moyes and SAF even have a good relationship despite last season.

Call it that with him and Keano, where the relationship is visibly strained and each continues to want the last word in public. But this, simply, is not comparable to that.
+2
my point was that no matter what people did to him or said about him, his act of talking about them - behind their back - in a book isn't classy. he should just move on.
How is saying something to the media (which is for the world to see) considered "Behind their Back"?
+3
I think the problem that I have lies in his public declarations. You know he is airing his dirty laundry to everyone to see. Everything he is saying could well be true but that doesn't change the fact that i believe its unprofessional for him to address the public about somebody instead of addressing the person.
+3
doesn't that also mean it's unprofessional for them to criticize him in the first place?
+2
You can't deny the role for fergie for the decline of man utd.with likes of ronaldo,Rooney and tevez,he could have create and sustain a team,which would people talking for years to come.But he couldn't able to keep his winning team together,either he fails to bring quality players for ageing super stars,rather he sold their two great players.Adding to that,the incoming over flow of money to the epl,which allows his rival to bring up better players and let to give a strong fight against the dominance of man utd.

So he should accept before putting blame on someone else that,he was responsible for not to bring quality addition to the squad whom been let the club to keep their dominance in English soil and more,he should accept the fact that he had given a half baked team for considerably inexperienced coach who he certainly knows,wouldn't going to succeed in higher level.
+3
he's telling his opinion now that he is retired, people finding any reason to hate the man. nothing wrong with him giving his opinions after 26 years in the spotlight having to temper his thoughts. now you know things from his perspectives, why hate him for revealing his opinions? you dont have to agree but i think attacking his character makes no sense at all.
+1
I don't hate fergie for this, I also don't think he is a good person. Its the way he is giving his perspective, he distances himself from all criticism thus throwing others under the bus. Alas it seems no united fan will understand how throwing colleagues under the bus is morally wrong.
+1
somere: he may not have physically directed the comments towards their backs, but he didn't say it to their faces.
+1
maybe it seems no city fan can be unbiased when it comes to fergie

throwing moyes under the bus would be saying i never wanted him, he was never good enough, it a top manager would have done better, etc.

i believe fergie is just giving his side of the story. everyone is saying moyes had a poor squad and this and that when fergie obviously did not believe the team he won by 11 points were suddenly all poor players. there is some truth, he could get more out of those guys than moyes apparently, but there were too many avg players in the side if everyone is honest. not enough changes were made to identify those who would work well under moyes and those who wouldn't and needed to be sold and replaced.

the media have portrayed events as SAF hand picking moyes and having the final say in his selection, fergie has come out and said thats madness, the glazers would never leave their fortune in the hands of one man. what makes more sense now that you think about it? fergie imo is just telling his side of the story, and it's important to me as a fan that i know this instead of just hearing one side of the story the media wants to portray. thats my opinion on all of this. you see throwing moyes under the bus, whereas if you read the text he compares himself to moyes' first year. doesnt sound like it's someone throwing moyes under the bus. i think he's empathetic, but at the same time he would have done things differently, and perhaps gotten more out of his players or reinforced more, and ultimately moyes made his own decisions which contributed to the poor form and his eventual sacking.
+1
I completely disagree Khessler, this is not throwing Moyes under the bus at all. You're making comments on morality based on comments in a book, comments that are hardly even incendiary. Point out a passage that you think is wrong to say in a personal autobiography. Moyes' reign is still very much a part of SAF's story, especially considering the perceived role he had in picking Moyes, true or not, and he has every right to talk about it.

Eeegay, football is a game of honest opinions. I don't know what you're asking of Fergie, did you want him to phone up Moyes and say, "Hey David, I'm thinking about saying the pace of the squad was too slow under your reign, will that hurt your feelings?" The fact of the matter is, there's nothing about SAF talking about Moyes behind his back. He gave an honest opinion in his book about a squad he left behind at a club he helped build, an opinion with merit, whether you disagree or not. Do pundits have to ask a manager's permission before they criticize his tactics on MOTD? Honest, football-driven opinions, there's not a single attack on Moyes' character in there.

This is only an issue because you all want it to be.
These comments are just unnecessarily long.
Feel free not to read them, I don't think we'll care.

Short enough for you?

I love how honest Harry Redknapp is

He calls out Taraabt for being overweight lol
+1
What Redknapp said was uncalled for. I feel for Taraabt, whatever is going on with him and the manager stays between them you don't go spilling the beans to the media.
Well its pretty funny. You're a little to sensitive mate.

You need people like harry in the game. Its entertaining

Mourinho, Rodgers and Wenger are on a plane.
The plane is running out of fuel and there are only 2 parachutes.

Mourinho: "I'm too important I'm the Special One!" He grabs the parachute and jumps.

Rodgers (sweating and terrified): There's only one parachute and 2 of us...What are we doing now?
Wenger smirks: No problème. There are 2 parachutes left. The Clever One jumped with the sleeping bag
