one does not simply change the philosophy of a whole team overnight. im sure many teams have tried playing like braca already but failed. rather than trying to change the way you play you should try to make use of the play style of the players in your team. they way things are now there isn't a single player in liverpool who can play spanish football.

Luis Suarez, Jose Enrique, Lucas, Gerrard, Aquilani, Borini, Agger, Reina, and some of our Academy stars like Suso and Pacheco (who are actually Spanish), Sterling and a few others are more than capable of playing the passing games. There are probably more LFC that can suit Rodgers style but I can't say for sure because I haven't seen them in training yet

heres the thing about barcas football, they created it.

liverpool can imitate it all they want it wont work. its not a matter of having spanish players or players that can play like barca.

the key to football is to find your own style and play to that. FYI, the barca style of play isnt new either. its taken the club years to perfect it. go and watch previous world cups where spain got knocked'll see what im talking about.

Liverpool have no hope of getting into the top 4 anytime soon. Not with City and United head and shoulders above, Chelsea reinvesting big once again, along with Spurs and Arsenal possessing far superior squads.

Best case scenario for 2012/13- 5th
