Brendan Rodgers Era Off To A Rocky Start

Jack Kitson by Jack Kitson / 20 August 2012, 09:44

Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers is the man charged with spearheading a revival at Anfield but it was a case of new season, same old performances for the Merseyside club as they slumped to a dismal 3-0 defeat to West Brom in their opening Premier League match of the season. Rodgers has not been shy in stating his goal of finishing in the top four and if he is to stay true to his word then a stark improvement is needed.

In an all too familiar fashion Rodgers’ encountered similar problems to his predecessor Kenny Dalglish. Liverpool struggled to convert their possession into goals last season and they once again failed to find the back of the net, with Luis Suarez in particular guilty of missing a host of chances. Captain Steven Gerrard failed to assert his authority on the game and questions remained unanswered on how to get the best of Andy Carroll.

It is obvious that Rodgers needs time for his philosophy to work but, such is the pressure of the modern game, he will be desperate for his side to click before it’s too late. Following the defeat the former Swansea boss has had his odds cut to 9/1 in the Next Premier League Manager To Leave market. With matches coming up against the likes of Arsenal and Man Utd in September, Liverpool supporters will be hoping that the Rodgers revolution can spark into life as soon as possible.

Next up for the Reds is a trip to Hearts on Thursday for the a Europa League qualifying match, which is followed by the daunting task facing defending Premier League champions Man City on Sunday.
