yes, that's what I was talking about in previous threads - the CONSISTANCY! So please Brendan, find it and establish it as soon as possible.

"its not consistency so much as players with heart and ability and dont understand why brad jones wasn't playing he did nothing wrong before he was dropped also dont understand why sahin,assaidi and morgan dont even make the bench when the likes of shelvey (who was woeful today)downer (who's played ok about 3 times so far)are 1st on the teamsheet JOKE"

"i think that is a fair appraisal by rodgers although i am not totally convinced by br the players have to be more convincing as this was the performance of a mid table team. we got an early goal then let stoke dictate the game that early goal should have allowed us pull them apart as they chased the game players "

"This is FSG's fault, make no mistake, they wanted Brendan Rodgers or Rodrigez. Brendan isn't big enough to get this club back on top again, even if he was given more cash to spend. his signings so far have been atrocious, absolute garbage mediocre with no character. I wanted him to do well but I feel it would be dangerous for the club to keep him until end of the season. RISKY!"

"Been saying it for the past 5 years, without attacking minded players there's no hope of top 4. We always rely on 1 or 2 players every god damn season. I ruled Liverpool out of top 5 before the season even started. Also anyone slating Sturridge haven't got a clue either. "

Luis7Sturridge15
26th Dec 2012 23:36
"Wolfzone - I highly doubt he did his homework seeing as you don't play Suso as a winger and leave the likes of Assaidi and Sahin out. Not to mention Sterling on the bench! We need at least 2 attacking minded players in January. Sturridge and Ince will help and prove these other moaners wrong. "

Keep quiet Rogers."

"As long as we get Sturridge we will be fine...come off it. another waste of money on a player who is selfish, greedy and only in it for himself.

"Too often Rogers does not lnow how to play tactically against different teams. Several times this season he has made a sub before half time and again today, it was clear to see Suso would have no impact on a game against Stokes Scrum halves yet he starts him. It was a game set up for a 5-3-2 with Coates playing. Rubbish from Pool today."

"Buddha-Fair comment with regards to KK playing his signings even when their form was not good,this is where a lot of managers do let themselves down as they have to justify their buys.Hopefully we can move forward from here"

"weve thrown away too many points ...we could of made cl should of made cl..but a late dash and equal on points will leave us with europa..stupid decision to let carroll go in the first place...then to think the fans wont believe the hype im not letting him go with buying a striker...woops "

"Buddha-I thought you would appreciate my double entandre.As i have always said a manager does need 2 years to implement "their ways" so hopefully BR will do that and i think Sturridge will be a good signing.Fingers crossed.I bid you a good evening."

"I believe in BR , the problem is and has always been recruitment. It is bewildering !!!! and now we must bear sturridge etc ; this is unacceptable !!! We need technically gifted players particularly midfielders eg Mata Chelsea !!! When will this lesson be learnt?"
