Liverpool F.C – Bringing Back The Glory Years !


Established in 1892 , Liverpool F.C. is one of the most successful clubs in England and has won more European trophies than any other English team with five European Cups, three UEFA Cups and three UEFA Super Cups. The club has also won eighteen League titles, seven FA Cups and a record eight League Cups.

However in the recent years , the club has been in sort of a decline . Liverpool have not won the Premier League since 1990 , not at all suitable for a club of Liverpool’s stature . Liverpool’s most recent meaningful challenge to the title came in 2009 under Spanish manager Rafa Benitez . Liverpool finished second to Manchester United , despite suffering just two loses in the league .

Benitez was sacked the next season after a dismal 7th position in the league and due to disputes with the American owners . Roy Hodgson , the successor didn’t last long too , he was sacked too after a disastrous spell which left Liverpool third from the bottom after seven games . He was replaced by former Liverpool player and legend Kenny Dalglish who then steadied the ship and achieved a decent 6th finish after an extremely poor start to the season . While King Kenny received the job next year , he could only manage a 8th palced finish . And despite winning the League Cup which earned Liverpool a place in the Europa League and reaching the FA Cup Final , owners John Henry and Tom Werner decided it was time for change . Brendan Rodgers succeeded Dalglish . The Swansea manager had kept the club fromm being relegated and Swansea had played some attractive football on the way .

It is time for Liverpool to improve . But is Rodgers the right man to take Liverpool ahead ?
Only time will tell .


Hi Guys ! I am new here and this my first attempt at a Football Manager story . I will be doing it with my favorite club - Liverpool . While this may be my first attempt at a FM story , this is not my first year playing FM . I have been playing since 2010 and following this site since 2012 . I will start the actual save when I receive the game . I live in India , and it may take a bit longer to get the game here . So , if you have any suggestions for me I would love to hear them . Thanks !
Good luck :D

Thank you !

Lets meet the squad !


It was a brave decision from Brendan Rodgers to let long-serving keeper Pepe Reina leave for a loan spell to Napoli where he reunites with the man who brought him the England , Rafa Benitez . In comes Simon Mignolet , Belgian stopper , who will be deputised by the Australian Brad Jones .


Daniel Agger , Martin Skrtel are the two senior centre-backs , while summer signing Mamadou Sakho is the new face in the centre of the defence . Kolo Toure who arrived from free at Manchester City is another option in the defence . Full back Glen Johnson has competition from younger faces such as Martin Kelly and Andre Wisdom , both from the famous Liverpool Academy . On the left side on loan Valencia defender Aly Cissokho will face a battle of starting place from Spaniard Jose Enrique . Other young options like Tiago Illori , Sebastian Coates and Lloyd Jones will also be present .


Lucas Leiva will provide the defensive cover in the midfield . The likes of Brazilian Coutinho and Victor Moses will be the attacking spark in the side which also contain the excellent Steven Gerrard and Jordan Henderson . Joe Allen will be another face in contention . Young options like Joao Carlos , Conor Coady will also be present .

Wingers & Strikers

New signing Iago Aspas , and the young English duo of Raheem Sterling and Jordon Ibe will be the men on the flanks for Liverpool . The strikers include Uruguan Luis Suarez who will be missing a few matches , after receiving a suspension for biting Chelsea right back Branislav Ivanovic . Suarez’s strike partner will be Englishman Daniel Sturridge who enjoyed a excellent start to his Liverpool career after joining from Chelsea in January . Young striker Samed Yesil , who arrived from Leverkusen will be another option .
Good luck and nice update with the squad preview :)

Brendan Rodgers resigns

In what may come as a surprise announcement , Liverpool’s manager Brendan Rodgers has left the club . The Ulsterman has been at club since 2012 . His Liverpool side achieved 7th place in the EPL last season , but his side had improved greatly since the arrival of January signings , Daniel Sturridge and Philippe Coutinho . Along with Rodgers , assistant manager Colin Pascoe also has resigned from the job .

It is being suggested that there was a major dispute between the manager and the owners over the objectives for the next season and the transfer budget provided to achieve them . Owners John Henry and Tom Werner have confirmed that the search for the new manager will be started and they have a few names to consider already .

Liverpool legend , Jamie Carrragher , who recently retired , is one of the few names being linked with the job . Harry Redknapp , Fabio Capello and Swansea manger Michael Laudrup are other names in contention of replacing Rodgers .
