Re: Official Liverpool Thread
I think the recruitment is the problem more than BR. I feel like he has done a decent job with the players he's got (although not sure on his insistence on play Gerrard), but I really think we need to ask how we've spent so much on so many average players under him - especially when they have a bad start to their career and then get marginalised (see Borini, Markovic, Luis Alberto, Aspas, Balotelli and even Lallana & Allen to an extent). I recognise that none of the players have really proven themselves good enough, but then again not many of them have had a run of starting games in their preferred position for a prolonged period; if we are going to spend the 8s, 10s, 15s of millions on these players, they have to be given more of a chance (or we need to buy better players in the first place - that is my point).
I would not like to see Rodgers sacked as he has shown promise in a lot of areas (like generally getting the best out of his players) & playing decent football and is doing a relatively good job (bar the occasional delusional mid-season press conference). However, the scouting/recruitment team (Rodgers included) seriously need to get their act together in order for us to progress.
