Brendan Rodgers Heads Liverpool

Liverpool FC have finally decided on a new man to take Liverpool forward, the Northern Irishman Brendan Rodgers who just happens to be the cousin of Nigel Worthington, the prior international manger for N Ireland. The big question remains and will continue to do so until at least the middle of next season, is Brendan Rodgers a big enough name to step into the shoes of names such as Daglish, Shankly and Paisley.

There is no mistaking that Rodgers has started his Liverpool career with flying colours so far with his first press interview. The Northern Irishman looked very confident and positive, not at all daunted by the task at hand or the big names in his dressing room. He handled the press with remarkable ease and made it very clear from the get go that team was going to be run his way or no way at all. Many individuals in the footballing world have commented on the fact that Rodgers is going to have to seek approval from the big name players at the club in order to gain success, but Rodgers himself has made clear this is not the direction the club will be moving. Should any player currently serving at the club not be behind the manager, no matter how big they are, could very well find themselves out of the club .

As a Liverpool fan I am looking forward to the start of next season and will certainly watch the buying and selling of players over the summer break with much interest. In my humble opinion I think Euro 2012 is a fantastic opportunity for Andy Carol to prove he still has what it takes to wear a Liverpool shirt. The England Manager has put a lot of faith and trust into the big Geordie, it is now up to him to grasp this opportunity and run with it. Liverpool fans have been very unimpressed with Carols performance over last season so taking all this into consideration if Euro 2012 is a disaster for the player, perhaps Brendan Rodgers will start looking for a replacement partnership for Suarez.

Unfortunately all is a waiting game and full of what if's and hopefuls, the new Liverpool shirt could also be a good luck charm for the club, hopefully bringing the success of the 70's and 80's back to a trophy drought at the Anfield. One things for sure, whatever happens, Brendan Rodgers needs to be given full board support and time to mould his team and get them all playing the way his vision has forecasted.
