    Some Cheeky Summer Moves..

    Jason..clearly my post on Rogers CV has been grossly misinterpreted ? I was only suggesting that the one thing he didnt want to happen was a catastrophe where he found himself managing a side desperately trying to manouvre away from the drop zone late season hence my using the term he wanted to do "a reasonable job". I mean what could possibly look worse on a manager with ambition than presiding over the relegation of Liverpool FC ? I feel truthfully the extent of his ambition for us this season was simply to achieve a position in the upper half of the division. Do u dispute his signings for the most part have at this stage of the game proven to be not much better than mediocre ? Couhtino seems to be the only one with what could be considered a "natural talent" the rest seem like busts and now he wants to bring in Williams another very average player but yet again one he has managed previously as is the case with Sturridge Borini Allen. I have pôsted up that he does have some very good ideas the introduction of the sports medcine team has been marvellous and certainly has made all the difference to Stevie G this season but again I think Rogers just isnt the man for the job of manager of Liverpool football club.....if he keeps bringing in average players on te supposition he can transform them via some metamorphic processs into great players created to play to perfection his "system" then Im afraid we are in for a couple very inconsistent seasons ..so imo better to bite the bullet end of season and offer him a backroom position on the same money hes on now and appoint a seasoned pro manager to get us back where we belong ..among the elite of Europe.

    • Some good names there Jase I like this game. If we're sticking to the Prem, Shawcross might want to move, Hangeland even though he's just signed a contract. For a LB what about the young lad at Soton? Might cost a few quid though. I have no thoughts yet on midfielders and strikers.

      • Hey Loki,

        The one I'd vehemently disagree with, (personally) is Shawcross. To me, he's a big, slow, goon, whose made some horror tackles. If we were building an army to fight King Longshanks in Braveheart, then yes. BUT, while on Stoke, along with my countrymen Cameron who plays CB/LB, I actually think Huth could be very classy, and he's great on set pieces.

        Hangeland is a good shout, and heck, after the performance put in 2 weeks ago at Anfield, how about Collins? I don't think anyone could ever say it 100%, but he damn nearly had Suarez in his pocket all match. I doubt Spuds would sell to us, but he's already very classy to me and in line for England, so I'd say Caulker would be fantastic, despite having played for Rodgers at Swansea, and there's a Spanish lad, who just doesn't get time at Arsenal, Ignasio Miquel.. On the few occasions I've seen him in the prem, he's looked a talent, needs better/higher level training, and Arsenal's strong suit isn't nor ever will be defence..

        Worth a shout, and if I'm going to just toss out one wild card, not sure if you all remember him, but Mikel San Jose was a player Rafa bought, never used, then sold to Athletic Bilbao, and now he's a key figure in their defense. Cultured w/ English experience and obviously a very good season last year, while good "football" technique..
