Liverpool have had a very woeful performance early this season by all standards. This has in the end, culminated into the sacking of the Liverpool coach, Brendan Rodgers. Brendan Rodgers was sacked this Sunday. This was after the 1-1 draw with Everton at Everton’s home which took place on Saturday.
The game was a virtually fruitless one, especially for the Liverpool team. Liverpool got the first goal when forward Danny Ings scored at the 41st minute. Everton equalised sooner at the 45th minute through their forward, Romelu Lukaku. This result ended up placing Liverpool at 10th position on the table.
On Sunday, Rodgers was shown the door after it appeared that he was no longer fit to take the team to the promised land. It is reported that the decision to sack Rodgers had already been reached even before the Everton game. The owners of Liverpool, Fenway Sports Group chose not to reveal this before the match do that it would not interfere with preparations for the match.
Brendan Rodgers is the first Liverpool coach since the 1950s not to lift a trophy in his first three years. Rodgers came pretty close to getting the league title in the 2013/2014 season but they ended up coming second place. Louis Suarez was very important in this season. The next season he was sold and Rodgers was unable to find a suitable replacement. Thus, Liverpool ended up as sixth position in the 2014/2015 season.
Rodgers was cut some slack due to the previous performance of the team in the 2013/2014 season. This season, the performance of the squad was woeful and it has culminated to his leaving of the club.
Liverpool have promised to find a replacement for the coach before the game against Tottenham in two weeks time. Top contenders for the position include former Dortmund coach, Jurgen Klopp and former Madrid coach, Carlo Ancellotti.

The position of Liverpool coach Brendan Rodgers is in serious question as there have been insinuations that former Dortmund boss, Jurgen Klopp, might be interested in his job.

This is coming after a woeful performance by the Liverpool side since the beginning of this season. Liverpool haven’t won in their last five games before their match against Carlisle. Of the last 8 games played by Liverpool, they only have 6 goals to boot.

The game against Carlisle was even won on penalties as Liverpool could not find a win in 120 minutes. Danny Ings scored for Liverpool when he headed a cross from Adam Lallana into the goal in 23rd minute. Asamoah equalised for Carlisle in the 35th minute. The rest of the game dragged on with neither side being able to find the net. The Liverpool fans were so disappointed that they booed the team while the match was on.

A lot of people are calling for Brendan Rodger’s head. This is further heightened by insinuations that the former Dortmund coach might be interested in Rodger’s position. Klopp, who left Dortmund at the end of last season for a year long sabbatical might end it prematurely to take a coaching position in the English Premier league. Right now, Liverpool seems to be the club in need of a new coach.

Some fans have also vowed to wear Jurgen Klopp outfits to Liverpool’s next game in a bid to register their grievances.

However, neither Klopp nor any of his representatives has not been contacted by Liverpool for the position.

Liverpool have also been linked to former Madrid coach, Carlo Ancelotti.

Liverpool seems to be fed up with Brendan Rodgers current misfortune. Rumors have it that The Reds are weighing up their options as they look to replace their current team coach whose team has only been able to secure 8 points from a possible 18 points in six games. Their last result which was a 1-1 draw with Norwich city has left the coach hanging on a string as he tries to save his job. But it appears Liverpool have plans of their own to rescue the team. The club has released statements denying reports that they approached the three times Champions League winner but it seems unlikely to be true. It would be recalled that they were also linked with former Dortmund coach Jurgen Klopp when he departed the Bundesliga at the end of last season following a disappointing league run.

Ancelotti has always been an admirer of the club stating one time that he thinks the clubs anthem and fans are incredible. Ancelotti who left Madrid at the end of last season after winning the La Decima with Real Madrid has been contacted by a lot of big clubs in Europe. He took time off to have a back surgery and is said to be recovering well now. It is understood that the 56 years old veteran of the game is healthy enough to return to the side lines but is in no haste, he would rather wait for an exciting opportunity to present itself.

More pressure has been mounted on Liverpool boss, Brendan Rodgers after a dissppointing match against Norwich this Sunday. Liverpool drew the match 1-1 against Norwich at Anfield. Ings Scored first for Liverpool after half time in the 48th minute. However, Martins got one back for Norwich in the 61st minute following a blunder from Liverpool keeper during a corner kick.

Liverpool have won just 5 of their last 18 games in all competitions. This season, they have only scored four goals in the Premier League which is a record better than only Newcastle’s. All these point to a dismal performance from Liverpool.

The coach has a lot to be blamed for. Liverpool’s defence has continued in its sloppiness. This problem is further made worse by Liverpool’s bluntness going forward. Brendan Rodgers spent £80 million on 7 players this transfer season. However, there hasn’t been much impact in their game this season.

The next test for Brendan Rodgers is their league cup match against Carlisle on Wednesday. After that is the match against Aston Villa at Anfield. Aston Villa have won only one match this season. However, they have a good record against Liverpool. They have had two wins in their last four away games at Anfield. Also, Liverpool has not beaten Aston Villa at home since 2010.

Brendan Rodger’s side has to improve their performance in the coming matches. If Rodgers doesn’t improve he could find himself out of a job very soon. This is made worse by the insinuation that Dortmund’s former coach, Jurgen Klopp might be interested in Rodger’s position.

Liverpool’s Europa League campaign started with an away match to Bordeaux but their display wasn’t all that different from what we have been seeing them do in the premier league this term. Liverpool took the lead in the second half through a wonderful goal from Adam Lallana but Jussie was able to draw level for Bordeaux. Brendan Rodgers has been criticized for his surprise tactics and he seems to still be in the juggling game as his team reverted to a three-man defense allowing Jordan Ibe and Alberto Moreno to roam the flanks. Another point worth noting was the number of young players who featured for the team with Gomez, Rossiter and Jordan Ibe starting the match while Pedro and Bragnnagan were introduced in the later stages of the game. This influx of young players offers promises for the club’s fans.


Adams Lallana’s goal seemed to have secured all three points for Liverpool as the former Southampton drove in from the left, before curling the ball into the corner of the net. He missed their weekend clash against rivals, Manchester United through injury. Lallana’s technical ability has never been debated but his inability to convert a wonderful display into goal has always been a concern. Last night’s match showed that the young forward still had it in him as he was always a constant threat to the home team before getting a goal to crown his efforts for the night. He is sure to gain a starting berth in Brendan Rodger’s team if he continues to emulate this performance in subsequent matches.
