Our sources have confirmed that Brendan Rodgers has left his post as Liverpool manager after a bust up with Managing Director Ian Ayre.Rumours are circulating that the reason for this is because Ian Ayre fired Colin Pascoe, Brendan's right hand man. After finding out, Rodgers was left fuming with the decision and told the board that if they don't hire Colin back, he will resign from his post. The board eventually refused which eventually resulted in Brendan leaving his post. More to follow, stay tuned!


In a surprising turn of events, Liverpool football club have just announced that fan favourite Robbie Fowler has signed a 1 year deal with the club to be their new manager. Liverpool have been linked with high-profile managers like Andres Villas Boas and Roberto Di Matteo but the board have opted to put the future of the club into the hands of a club legend. There's no doubt that Fowler was a fantastic player back when he was at Liverpool, but this is a completely different job filled with completely different tasks, so it's interesting to see how the new Liverpool boss will settle into the hotseat.
Good choice !
Good luck!
Good luck with the mighty Liverpool!
Best of luck!
Thank you all :)

RF-Robbie Fowler

J: Welcome Robbie. First of all, congratulations for managing to land a job as high profile as this.

RF: Thank you.

J: How does it feel returning to a your beloved club a third time, this time not as a player, but a manager?

RF: Well obviously anyone would be absoloutely delighted to land such a job. I can't stop thanking the owners and Mr.Ayre for giving me such a wonderful opportunity the coach the team I have adored since I was a kid.

J: Will you try to get Liverpool to play possesion football, just as Brendan Rodgers did? Or will you be opting for different tactics and philosophies?

RF: I think that every game has it's own story. There will be games where we will try and dominate a game with possesion and passing play, and there are times where we have to hoof the ball up and set-up a counter attack tactic. But obviously we will see before the games which tactic is most suitable.

J: Regarding staff, will you work with the current staff members or will you look to bring your own backroom team?

RF: Well I only just arrived two days ago so I didn't really have a chance to meet all the staff members. When I meet all of my staff, I will assess them and see if they're suitable enough to be at a club like Liverpool.

J: Obviously the transfer market is open, will you be looking to buy and sell players?

RF: Regarding the selling of players, everybody will have a chance to prove himself before I make any decision about selling them. And with buying players, I feel that we already have a fantastic squad here, but I we might dip in the market for one or two players who I feel can improve the current group of players that we have here. I will also bring in someone at the club who will help me in recruiting new players.

J: That's it for now Robbie. Thankyou for your time and goodluck.

RF: Thanks mate and no problem.

Miralem Pjanic
Mehmet Ekici
Will Hughes
Adam Campbell
Zakaria Bakkali
Neal Maupay

Craig Roddan(loan)
Jon Flanagan(loan)
Andre Wisdom(loan)
Kristoffer Peterson(loan)

To sum up, it was a very successful transfer window. We had 6 transfer targets in mind, and managed to get all of them. With Pjanic we have a player who's still fairly young but experienced and can come in and make an immediate impact. In Ekici we have another young player who can be very useful when we have injuries or have lots of matches in a short space of time. Hughes has the potential to be my next Steven Gerrard, but can already be used in the Premier League at a tender age of 17. While in Campbell,Bakkali and Maupay we have future superstars but for now they have to earn their stripes in the reserves and U18's.
Good signings in, how much did they cost you?
@Justice i signed Pjanic for about 16 million, Ekici for 4.5 million, Hughes for 5, and Bakkali Maupay and Campbell didn't have professional contracts so i signed them and had to pay a compensation of about 800k each :)
Some good signings there mate good luck!
@k1rups thanks mate:)
Some very good and young signings, I look forward to seeing how Will Hughes will perform in the Premier League so fast after only being in the game not so long ago

With the right training and slowly weining him into the squad with cup matches and coming on as a late impact sub, if he has the right attributes maybe train him into another position maybe like a Attacking Midfielder.

Can you show me a picture of his attributes?
@Walsall_Craig i'm having trouble taking printscreens at the moment but i managed to find his profile when the game starts
