BR - With Liverpool all set to kick off their new season within the next three weeks under the guidance of new manager Brendan Rodgers, it is worth analysing exactly what will be expected of the new boss and the club as a whole.
Here are my goals 1) Destroy teams like Wigan, QPR, Norwich, aka not get beat by small clubs 2) Make Anfield a fortress again 3) Play players in their correct positions. Having Henderson at RM, for instance does not help. 4) Would like to see an improvement every week. I hated how last season the same mistakes were being made at the beginning of the season until the end. 5) Score more goals 6) Although our defense was pretty solid last season, would like to continue the Agger-Skrtel partnership After all this, I think LFC can have a good chance at champions league spot
Point 1 is near impossible for any team even utd and city dropped points to small teams last season it happens all over the world hell even Barca did. Point 5 is your main problem you need goals it was your reason for not getting top 4 last season you have no natural goalscorer. Suarez is a great forward but he's not a natural goalscorer who will score like Aguero etc.. However get somebody to compliment his goals and that wouldn't matter. Maybe a Darren Bent would be great? Hell City are selling Adebeyor for 5 million! Thats peanuts!
Yeah I know that it's impossible to beat EVERY small club because there will always be upsets, but at least have a decent record against them. The problem was that LFC for the last few seasons did not show up against these small clubs and ended up losing, or drawing. I would like the mentality of the club players to change, have them show up to all games not just big games like Chelsea, City, Utd, etc etc And yup we need a clinical striker, Bent would be too expensive though and Adebayor is on high wages. I trust Rodgers to bring someone who will fit the bill
