Liverpool lost suarez, sturridge, sterling and gerrard
in their last season together they scored a combined 85 goals in the league in 38 games
if anyone has an excuse for being shit right now it's liverpool, not to mention klopp is managing someone elses squad
so get your facts straight
Sterling and Suarez = $125,000,000
So Suarez was irreplaceable, ok. Sterling was only potentially good.
Think about that shit though... $125,000,000
Not counting the money that the club put up as well...
Brendan wasted $125,000,000... it blows my mind. I can't even handle it.
Everyone said... He's gonna do a Spurs.
Brendan said 'I'm not gonna do a spurs".
Then he did a Spurs.
HE DID IT FUCKING TWICE.
I fucking hate Brendan Rodgers
apparently it isn't because City went from being nobodies to having one of the best squads on the planet. If you have a shit ton of money you can buy good players. With $125,000,000 he could have bought 3 world class players.

The funny thing is that Spurs learned their lesson the first time and now have a decent team built on some relatively cheap foreign players (except Lamela, of course) and homegrown youngsters. Liverpool went out and did the exact same thing, with the exact same manager. They really should have known better.
Rodgers wasted the Suarez and Sterling money on mediocre talent
>buy players from mediocre clubs
>expecting them to be anything but mediocre.
It's one thing if those players we bought were squad players, but they were meant to be our new spine. Well they are, and it's why we'll continue to get BTFO by teams like West Ham. Any dog can rise to the occasion everyone once in awhile, but the season isn't won by beating the top team, it's won by beating the teams around you and below. It's one over the span of 38 matches and 10 months. Mediocre players can't rise to that level week in week out for 43 weeks.
i think he probably bought players who had over achieved
lallana was in contention for player of the season
lovren looked like a solid centre back
i can see why he bought them, i think on paper they are sound signings (ignoring their price)
That's the problem, buying players from mediocre clubs that have one good season. How many times has that happened in the English football? Remember when Michu was the next big thing? Remember Scott Sinclair?
