dailymail (or dailyfail) judgement on all rodgers signing..i will give my long-long long comment later
So far they nailed it.

This is the first time in a long time that we don't have 1 world class player in the squad.
+1
I remember when Rodgers first came to liverpool. He stated that if a player performed on the pitch or in training he would be considered over whoever is not performing. Reason for Flanagan and sterling getting picked more frequently and it paid off.

This season I see so many of our first team players just not giving it enough. I think other then Allen, manquillo, coutinho and Lallana at times. The rest of our team have been bellow par. Why can't lucas, kolo or even the youth players have a chance. They can't possibly do worse then our current first 11

“This is more than just a poor start – there’s something wrong. Something isn’t right,” Carragher said.

“They are getting bullied out of games. Last year when they came here we said they were mentally and physically weak. Same again – nothing has changed."

“There’s no men in the team. Sometimes you have to grind results out."

“Luis Suarez has gone... so what? Suarez has gone. There’s no leadership on the pitch."

“As a Liverpool fan which I am – I don’t care about being neutral on TV – when you’re watching your own team, the worst thing you can ever think is they’re being bullied and weak."

“That’s what we’ve seen today from Liverpool and it’s not the first time. It’s being going on all season and we’re saying ‘oh, new players getting time to adjust’. I’m not a big believer in that."

“I’ve never moved clubs and I’m sure for a foreign player it takes a bit of time, but we’re getting to the stage now where you want to start seeing performances."

“Liverpool aren’t getting beat by quality – they’re getting bullied. They’ve been beaten by enthusiasm there by Crystal Palace."

“You knew it was coming. Palace got the equaliser. As soon as that goal went in Liverpool didn’t offer anything."

Carragher is completely right in my eyes.

There will never be consistency at our club because we dont have the personnel or the financial backing.
+1
@Pewpew You guys have spent around £385million in the past 5 Seasons. Thats £77million per season. You guys bought too many squad players or players who aren't good enough.

£77Million should be enough to buy 2 Quality Players. If you bought 2 Quality Players per season in the last 5 seasons then you would have 10 Quality players right now.
+1
^It's not that easy. We didn't have Champions League for 4 of those seasons to attract top quality players.

The biggest mistake we've made this past summer is underestimate the upcoming season and buying all those "squad players" for "depth"
But you're right, we should have gone for world class players than buy "talent"

With all that said, with everything done, it's easy to point out flaws and look back at "mistakes". I put that in quotes because when we were bringing in all these players, no one had problems with it and lot of people didn't think it'd be this big of a mistake.

On the other hand, there is also the case where we tried to sign players like Sanchez, Costa .. who are type of players we desperately need right now.
+1
We currently know at the moment they are low on confidence - Bolasie post match interview.

And this is coming from a Crystal Palace side who lost the past 4 out of 5 matches? LOL Wow, how we have fallen.
+1
This is like a nightmare that doesn't end....
Hopefully we get a win against Ludogorets and the spirit lifts a bit.
With how fragile we look and our clear "lack of confidence" I'm pretty worried. Ludogorets were no slouches even when they came to Anfield, they had a real go at us and we were lucky to win in all honesty. We need some luck our way...
I feel bad for Rodgers, it's not his fault that the players don't show any hunger to go forward or make runs to score a goal, to make a hard challenge and win the ball, or to track back all the way and recover the ball. The players just seem so uninterested in the match, no one attempts a through ball, all of them try to play safe and pass sideways instead.
The team selected by BR was good enough to win against Crystal Palace but if the players won't show any desire even the manager can't do anything.
I hope the players are at least pumped up for the Champion League 'coz if they continue to play like this it may be their last CL for a long time..
+3
The real question here is why aren't the players showing any desire? It is up to the leaders in the team, including BR, the manager, to motivate the group. And at the moment there is a lack of leadership in the squad.
+2
Are you a student or working?? I'm asking this because even in a working environment this is how it works.

If a team delivered bad performance it would be the manager who gets the blame and will be questioned. Also, if the team is doing great its the manager who gets the praise and recognition.

So manager is basically responsible for the teams performance..because that is his job and that is why he gets paid high. It would be his job to motivate the team or bringing in right people to and help them deliver good performance...this is how it works in real life as well.
+2
^ Yes.

"Management is defined as "getting things done through people" (from Old French ménagement "the directing", from Latin manu agere "to lead by the hand"). Management is a well defined word. A manager delivers results through people. Companies need managers to operate and succeed."
+2
I am not entirely blaming BR by the way, nor asking for his head. But he needs to get his stuff together and realize that he can't do everything by himself. His ego is betraying him IMO.
+2
End of the day I hope we can keep coutinho and sterling. Two future world class players.
+2
So, I was working all day yesterday and missed the match and went straight to sleep after I came back. Anyone has full match? Is it even worth watching? :/

What is going on with Lazar ?
+2
It seems like we always have a new player where we're like, whats happen to this guy. Markovic is good but needs to be much stronger.
He should start against Ludogorets. He might just tear them a new ass hole!
