Bad Day At The Office

21 Aug

                                                    Bad Day At The Office ?



Brendan Rodgers explained Saturday’s defeat to West Brom as a “bad day at the office”. Hopefully for Liverpool, that it is all it is.



But Liverpool’s fixtures get a lot tougher, with matches coming up against Manchester City, Arsenal, Sunderland and Manchester United.



Brendan Rodgers has been promised time by Liverpool’s American owners to turn around Liverpool’s fortunes. But if results in these fixtures are poor, then I’m sure the pressure will mount.



Liverpool Football Club is a lot different to any club Brendan Rodgers has managed, with bigger expectations and more pressure for positive results.



To be fair, everything that could go wrong, did go wrong on Saturday. But worryingly was the disjointed performance of the team, especially in defence, where Skrtel and Agger looked like they have never played together before.



Gerrard looked unsure of his role in the team, and never influenced the game at all. Downing looked every bit as poor as he did last season.



New signing Borini didn’t even show flashes of quality that Liverpool have been looking for, and Suarez can’t be relied upon to be Liverpool’s main goal threat with his poor finishing that he keeps highlighting.



Rodgers has a lot of work to do, and he is very aware of the fact, he also realises that he will have to add to the squad before the end of the transfer window.



Saturday’s performance looked like many of the players are finding it foreign to adjust Rodgers’ new style of play. It will take time for the team to play a new style, but the fixture list means they will have to adjust quickly.



Positive news that Suarez and Skrtel have committed to the club by signing new contracts, there is high hopes that Agger will follow suit to end speculation of a move to Manchester City.



But there is also speculation over Andy Carroll and Charlie Adam’s future, so hopefully they will be cleared up soon.



Brendan Rodgers is a very good manager and I’m sure he will make Liverpool a better team. Time is the key at Liverpool and it is paramount that no panic button should be pressed if results in the near future are not positive.
