Liverpool Message Board
agree 100% on the reina comments Dsteer. He has not become a bad keeper, rather he is having a dip in form. a lot of fans are very quick to turn on players when they hit a low point. i would struggle to think of a substantial number of better keepers in world football. his dad didn't help with the barca talk, perhaps thats whats happened with the supporters on this occasion. reminds me of that other bald chap that didn't stick around very long after his mum started chatting nonsense.
completely in agreement on this! he has been spot on since arriving, and worked with his new team mates as though he has been here for years. I think other than the obvious world class performers, both sturridge and henderson have looked full of energy and ideas these last couple of weeks. long may that continue.
what i really like about the more recent part of the season is that different players catch the eye in every game. henderson and sturridge most recently, but also downing, johnson, enrique, sterling. people are stepping up.
all out attack on negative 'fans' who constantly want rid of players and managers.
these boards are getting ridiculous. there are about 5 people who have anything positive to say. The others either have there heads stuck up there nether regions, or are stuck in the 80's.
for me, there are a lot of very promising signs in what is a rebuilding process. bringing in the right type of player, and bringing through youth to make the team play exciting, winning football. mistakes happen, it seems the luck isn't always on our side. We are working towards a much brighter dawn, while many of the teams around us are approaching dusk. for me it feels like we are getting a head start.
knock me down for being positive, but isn't the clue in the title 'supporter'?
.........support? look it up.
i have a feeling the formation might get changed for this one, and maybe go for wing backs. im probably wrong. dont know why. im going for.
just being controversial, but would like to see what shelvey can do up top with players who can put him through the middle as well as the wing backs, (who i would see playing very high up the field) whipping in crosses.
I absolutely hear that point. However every manager inherits a team from his predecessor. With the squad that Rodgers has inherited I do not think he has done a bad job, and concur with our captain gerrard who says that he has seen massive improvement in what is a very young squad. Given time I think we might have the right manager. If I'm wrong by the end of next season, I will hold my hands up and say so. Liverpool expects to win, but in order to do so those in charge need a bit of time. Half a season isn't enough. Sorry if it seemed like I was bullying you, I just genuinely thought you were a fan of another team. It was my opinion based on a lot of things you have said on here.
"i personally dont think changing managers every half season, who have not had a chance to build there own team or develop playing styles to there full potential should be disgarded"
makes no sense at all! just to clarify i dont think rodgers should be sacked midway through his first season, as this would be another backward step. Another manager having to start all over again, probably end up selling half the team and rebuilding . . .AGAIN!
This was a genuine question. If it offends, i apologise. I just find armchairs continual whinging, season after season a little bit hard to get along with, particularly when he persists in making massive sweeping generalisations, and statements with little or no grounds in truth. Liverpool are not what they were at the moment, everybody knows that. i personally dont think changing managers every half season, who have not had a chance to build there own team or develop playing styles to there full potential should be disgarded. for somebody who talks about 'one step forward, two steps back' i would have thought armchair might be on the same page on that. either way, happy new year, and heres hoping 2013 is a winner.
only an idiot would say lose two games on the trot and then when asked when that happened, say
Ok then in December we:
Won. won, lost, won, lost, won.
two games on the trot?
seriously armchair, you just keep getting more ridiculous. is it utd, city or chelsea you really support? my moneys on chelsea based on the number of times you ask for the manager to be sacked.
right folks, i'm out. i've got all superstitious, and since i've stopped doing this, liverpool have started climbing the table. sounds ridiculous, but its a good enough reason for me to stop!
