Got a bit of a brain teaser as a response for you Colin. Who should get credit for a player when he's bought by one manager but only starts to impress under another?
There is no doubt a number of KK's signings have looked the business this term, such as Downing, Henderson, and even Suarez who despite his great play since he came to us had been wasteful in front of goal till this season. But who gets the credit, the man who signed them or the man who's coached them?
If we take your advice and send BR packing, but the likes of Sturridge turns into a 15 plus goal scoring next term who gets the credit? For all we know, shoulder taken care of Allen could actually turn out to be the Welsh Xavi, and while I know you highly doubt this, just maybe without a broken foot we might see what earned Borini a spot at the Euros with Italy, but again will that be a credit to BR for buying him, or however you think should replace him?
Just another thought about giving credit where its due. I do think BR deserves some credit for progress this term, but also think credit goes to some key positions he's filled. For example fitness, sports medicine and youth development. The latter maybe we won't see for a while, but who should be given credit for the fact Stevie has played every game in the league this season and that Agger has been available almost for the entire season. Both I think have never happened before.
All if's & but's Steer.. lets talk of the reality as it stands.. The reality as it stands now is Allen is average, Downing is average, Henderson is average.. sensing a pattern yet? Oh lets not forget Rodgers wants to the list with Williams.. yet another average player..a team of average players = an average team which is what LFC has become under Rodgers..

No Sofa, actually no if's and buts, just simple questions. Who gets credit for Downing now he's performing, KD for buying him despite him never doing anything while KD was at the club, or BR who has got the best out of him since his Villa days?
Same question for Henderson, same applies to Sterling, and a few others.
