One More Year
Brendan Rodgers. A man once dearly loved by just about every Liverpool fan there is now hangs from a thin thread as far as his position at Liverpool is concerned. After the disappointment of losing the Premier League to Manchester City so harshly and so late nearly a year ago, it was no wonder why poor performances started to leak into the team one season on.
However, performances got so bad that the Reds were left with nothing to show from their eagerly awaited Champions League return which saw them into the Europa League where they were knocked straight out on penalties by Besiktas. The Premier League ended with them in sixth place after a shameful 6-1 loss to Stoke and many fans called for their managers' head.
Despite such a dismal season, it seems FSG have taken into account that last seasons presentation of the team was solely down to the effect that losing the title so late had on the team as a whole. Or so Brendan Rodgers claims.
Given FSG's considerations, Rodgers will remain Liverpool manager for the start of next season and those who were calling for Klopp or Ancelotti will not see either take over the Liverpool senior squad for the 2015/16 campaign.
Rodgers did recently claim that he was "150% sure" he'd remain manager of the five time European Champions but does know that he stands on thin ice as far as his employers are concerned. Any more of last seasons antics and he'll be out the door...Supposedly.
Many fans believe that Rodgers' job should have been taken away from him, but others think that anyone of that opinion clearly has such a short term memory that they can't even remember back to a year ago. One fan claimed: "Rodgers is the right man for the job. He always has been to be honest. First season was a get to know kind of campaign and the second season we absolutely blitzed the league and he himself shined brightly as a great coach.
"A season on we weren't so good, no. That was always going to happen though. I personally believe the squad went into the next season still feeling down hearted and sorry for themselves and rightly so, Rodgers shouldn't let that happen. We'll come back from this and so will he. We learn from our mistakes.
The Liverpool head coach will have up until Christmas to show he's still the right man for the job, but if things don't pan out the way supporters might hope then it's expected Jurgen Klopp or Ancelotti will be called upon to end their sabbatical's and take on the challenge that Liverpool will hold for them.
Notes: Hey guys and welco - Oh what's the point I'm not even going to bother. Yes, I have decided to end my previous story which lasted all of five minutes. No, I won't make excuses. What I will say though, is that I wasn't enjoying writing it. It made the save less enjoyable - And I believe you'll get a lot more entertainment out of a story that 1. I'll stick with and 2. has a better style which I actually enjoy writing.
I know Glenn has a story with Liverpool but this is the only team I seem to be able to hold a story with. I will try and keep this as different to him as possible, which is also why I have downloaded Pr0's new update to add a little more interest to it. Enjoy
