The end is nigh: £52m star warns LFC about massive transfer 'problem'.

Over the last few months, speculation over the future of Liverpool striker Luis Suarez has reached fever pitch, and Napoli striker Edinson Cavani is the latest person to warn the Reds that his Uruguay team-mate Luis Suarez could leave Anfield sooner rather than later.

When quizzed about Suarez's future at Liverpool last night, Cavani - who has a ridiculous £52m release clause in his contract - hailed Suarez as 'one of the top strikers in the world', adding:

"He [Suarez] wants to be playing Champions League football.

"Liverpool are not going to make it this season, but if they don't make it next season then they will have a problem.

"Luis would love to play in the Champions League with Liverpool, but if he can't then a player of his quality needs to play for a club where he can."


As team-mates, it's reasonable to assume that Suarez has discussed his future with Cavani, and the 26-year old's comments are probably a true reflection of how the Uruguayan feels, i.e. he'll stay one more season and then leave if Liverpool don't qualify for the Champions League.

I think that's perfectly fair, and unless Liverpool make the top four next season, the club will have another Fernando Torres situation on its hands.

Staying an extra year is the least Suarez should do, especially after the impact Liverpool has had on his career so far. There's still a big possibility, however, that he'll leave this summer. Ultimately, the decision may be out of his hands, as Jan Molby suggested in his column for the Chester Chronicle yesterday:

"There are enough clubs with money this summer looking to buy someone of Suarez’s quality to expect bids to come in for him. If someone offers upwards of £40million then Liverpool will have a big decision to make"

Cavani also revealed that Suarez is grateful for the support he's been shown by LFC over the last two years:

"I know it meant a lot when Liverpool stood by him through some tough times, and he has a lot of love for the club and their fans"

Be that as it may, FSG are stone-cold businessmen with no historical personal connection with Liverpool, so if they get a huge offer, I suspect they will take it.

I don't trust FSG in the slightest and with Rodgers being the yes-man he is I think Luis will be gone in the summer.


FSG have no plans for us other than mid-table mediocrity and consequently hired a mid-table manager who doesn't seem to learn from his mistakes.

rowanb said...

He will stay one more season.the comments point to that.
if we dont get busy and sign some world class talent and qualify for the CL, he's well within his rights to do one.
he's one of the worlds greatest players right now and should not be expected to turn down a big move. he's also coming into his prime.

I honestly believe there will be a high turnover of players this coming summer. what matters is how well the new transfer committee perform.

strootman, mertens, williams, gramiero, dede, eriksen etc etc

Eric said...

If we don't qualify for the CL next year and he leaves, then fair efs to him. He's done his part to make it happen and he can't be blamed for not sticking around at a club that can't match his ambition three years in a row.

toodles said...

Why don't you trust them? I think you need to give them a little more credit!

Jamie said...

Fully agree and I'm confident we're on the right track with BR, the only worry I have is whether FSG will provide him enough fund the quality of players we need in the summer to maintain our momentum...

Picachoo said...

I have to disagree with most of the comments so far. FSG In my eyes have so far do e everything right. We wanted kenny and got him but ultimately we needed a young manager with a long term vision. We got that in Rogers but theyvwould have been foolish to throw money at the project straight away without testing rogerd credentials. Personally I think Rogers has proved that this season and fully expect an investment similar to that of when kenny took over. Suarez I think will give us one more season so the owners know its make or break time. These guys do not want a mid table club, to suggest that is obsured.

Jamie said...

I dont think FSG have put a foot wrong so far - sure they're not sheiks, but there hardly TH & GG either - so really in this economic climate we cant complain. They've had a strategy from the start to increase commercial revenues - which they have done successfully to help compensate for lack of the teams competition rewards and their also developing a prudent longterm strategy for success on the pitch based around their successful sporting model. As for Rogers being the 'yes man he is' - he's never given me that impression!!!

Jamie said...

100% agree - of course they will make mistakes like with bowing to fan pressure to hire KD and give him carte blanche with the cheque book but they learnt from that and brought in a manager with an attacking ethos that matched what Benitez/segura/borrell had started,to try and bring a recognised style of play back to our club from kids to 1st team. It's a long term strategy they're implementing - ipso facto there here for the long term!

Eltel79 said...

I've never commented on articles by this "journalist" before yet have become so bored of the nonsense written I feel compounded to do so. Not once, ever, have I read a piece on this site that is positive upbeat or optimistic. Surely the most negative, overly critical and glass half empty so called Liverpool fan I've ever come across. Why not try praising players and actually supporting them and the team from time to time! Rather than the constant criticism?

Scott said...

I would hate to see him leave this summer but if we can get a club to offer more than the 50m we got for torres and if all that we get is put into Rodgers transfer funds then it might just make sense to sell him. I dont think we only have 20m of a transfer budget next window thats been rumoured from media sources. That rumour has started since the release of our loss in profits, those figures of loss in profit dont reflect the clubs current financial position but the after math of the ridiculous spending on the likes of carroll etc paying off the crazy debt hicks & gillette built up on stadium plans etc. all these things are now paid for now hence the loss in profits, we have to realise our club was near administration under last owners.
The state of our club was ridiculous debts of around 400m and rising the amount of dead wood players on high wages not doing anything or near enough to justify their earnings, joe cole perfect example. Not just the debts that was hindering the club the interest we were having to pay on these debts also were mounting and eating any profits the club was making. In my eyes if FSG never stepped in when they did no matter what people say about them (only business men out for their own interests) etc we might of been going through administration as a club by now very good chance the mess our club was in we would of been.

Tommy said...

FSG wanted a director of football and Rodgers refused... is that what a yes man does?

NonEventHorizon said...

Yeah totally agree with you and Eric. I've never been one to shout about needing big money, marquee signings (other than Sneijder and maybe Muniain if you count him as big money), but I think FSG will have to put a decent amount of money into the club again this summer if we are to keep Suarez. I suppose this summer will be the first real big test of their ambition.

NonEventHorizon said...

well said

Daniel said...

Completely made up. He even got Cavani's age wrong.

ross daniel geotge Latham said...

hows the buyout clause ridiculous, its there to ward off teams who want him n if they really do then they need to pay the buyout clause, messi has a 250m buyout which isn't ridiculous at all! Suarez will stay for this next season at least then will move if we don't make it!

bobbyNOLA said...

I'm seeing this reported elsewhere, too... However, you're right, Cavani is the same age as Luis...

orme said...

He will be here for at least another 8 years.

bobbygraham said...

It is clear we have to get some proven class players to get in the top four next season. we already have an abundance of great prospects

bobbyNOLA said...

Some additional texture and quotes from espn:

However, Cavani said it would be a hard decision for Suarez to move away from Merseyside and the Premier League, with the 26-year-old admitting Suarez has been trying to convince him to make the switch from the Serie A.

"I know it meant a lot when Liverpool stood by him through some tough times and he has a lot of love for the club and their fans," Cavani said.

"When I speak with Luis he speaks with admiration about Liverpool and the Premier League.

"He even encourages me to play in England."

megaamindd said...

worst site in the footballing history ! no .. absolutely no article from this website comes true !! and it copies everything from other websites .. hasnt got anything of it's own !
this is the last article that i am reading from this website !

Jamie said...

Exactly - I'm sure they've learnt from the KD (still a legend, truly tried his best) 2nd coming and can see the progress second half season - the stats show how much we've improved even without the silverware or champions league. I think it's a question of whether they CAN actually afford to pull £50m out again for BR rather than if they WOULD at this stage of their plan. I'm looking long term it took arsenal a few years and their fans a lot of frustration but after adopting a long term approach their now making strong returns on their investments and boasting record profits..

Jamie said...

More like 8 months til jan transfer window!

Jason Carr said...

well thats a surprise fsg mite take the money and run,no mite about it,and lets face it the chance of lfc getting champions league under rodgers are about as big as ego massive

Jason Carr said...

totally agree m8 the fans who rhink they give a toss about the club are deluded maybe when they sell suarez and buy more cheap crap they will wake up to that fact

kingkenny73 said...

If and only if it ever gets to the stage Suarez is thinking of leaving the club should sit him down and show him highlights of Torres since leaving and ask the question do you still want to leave?

Jason Carr said...

you really are a poor judge of character they hired him so they could tell him what to do,something they knew they could not do with kenny.hence the got rid as soon as the chance arose

Jason Carr said...

it will be torres all over again and imo he has every right to move on the club will not match his ambition

Jason Carr said...

momentum,best laugh i,ve had in years what momentum winning a few games before another crushing defeat lol your to much

orme said...

Wrong.

Jason Carr said...

bye don,t forget to log out;-)

bobbygraham said...

We have great young prospects - Texiera is pure class, much better and more effective than Suso.

orme said...

Thank you for that, mate. Gives another perspective on the story...

orme said...

In the mail from the Disqus it says that this reply is from Jaimie... Funny...

Jaimie K said...

What's 'funny' about that? There is a poster called 'jamie', and that is a repost of the same comment he posted earlier. Plus, your disqus message will say it's from 'jaime', not 'Jaimie'.

Jason Carr said...

lol yes i laughed my head off

VermHat said...

I very much doubt FSG would sell Suarez unless an extremely robust transfer plan is in place for the Summer (as either a primary or contingency option). It'd be a PR disaster for them.
I honestly can't see Suarez leaving this summer. That said, I was surprised when Torres left. If Suarez leaves this summer, I'll be disappointed in him but if he stays another season and we still don't get Champions League, I'd have to say that it is fair enough on his part (depending where he goes).

Jaimie K said...

I can see Suarez leaving and Xabi Alonso returning, which would be a smart move by FSG to appease the fans.

Jamie said...

No J we do have momentum if you look at the bigger picture!- we had momentum under rafa which with financial backing we could maybe have gone forwards but we didn't, I now final,y feel we have a defined style of play right throughout which will make us difficult to beat even if we don't have a team of expensive players - plus off the pitch I believe FSG are putting the right foundations in place financially...surely that is moving forwards, results will come its BRs first season for feck sake!!

Jamie said...

Guilty as charged...

Jamie said...

Lol! And try tribal football!

Jamie said...

Only if Suarez went for upwards of £60m this summer, alonso in for £10m and the rest added to the £20m kitty everyone mentions would I personally be appeased...

Jamie said...

Love the boy - i feel under BR (and our limited budget) him and the other promising kids will get the best chance and wont break my hopes like Pacheco

Jamie said...

Lol! And a few highlight reels of Owen before and after!

Jason Carr said...

inf rodgers starts as bad next season he has to be sacked after 6 games otherwise its another wasted season

Jason Carr said...

big step backwards imo would like alonso bck but not at suarezs expence and would alonso come knowing we were going to sell our best players

Jamie said...

Please explain how they are they telling him what to do - are they picking the team via a combination of webcam and FM?! I suppose they gave him free rein on the back room staff he's brought in so they can tell them what to do too? I loved Kenny but he wasn't a coach (not even in the glory days) - he could install a mentality but not a playing ethos - BR well out qualifies him there - I love the way the team is playing - I love we dominate teams - it just takes patience and a bit of money - we have no magic wand or no Arab backers so we've got to look at our expectations with a tinge of realisom

Jamie said...

I think we all agree we've been blessed with Luis and would not begrudge him if we fail to make CL next year - but are you going to bankroll our summer transfer kitty? Our finances have been published and are pretty clear - plus we want to redevelop anfield - this ain't FM where we can take over Man U and spend £150m on Carroll!

Jason Carr said...

your easy pleased rodgers is a complete joke and wasted a complete season imo he should have been sacked he was worse than hodgeson but will keep is job because he says f"ck all against fsg because he cannot beleive they gave him the job and when he leaves he will be back in the championship were he belongs just hope he go,s before he takes us there

Jamie said...

Lol! Liverpool I used to know thrived on stability with many of our most successful managers relatively unproven until LFC. I'd give him 2 years and see where we are - although I'm confident with the right signings CL is possible next year

gilstrap said...

if the wheels completely fall off as we finish this season i can see suarez going in the summer ...his value will be at a premium to fsg ...and if the above scenerio happens under rogers .why will things change so much next year..

Jason Carr said...

no i,am not but i never said we can compete with any club in the world on transfers did i,

L4red said...

Yeah, record profits & won bugga all in years

Jason Carr said...

no one of any note knows who the f"ck rodgers is and surhin said he thanked god he had left rodgers

Jason Carr said...

because he has a plan if he makes us complete shite this season and then next season we are just shite it will be seen as an improvement next season by the rodgers cult

gilstrap said...

i can see suarez leaving and rogers signing a couple of kids for 10m

Jamie said...

Lol if we're complete shite this season what have we been the previous few?!? We hardly been league contenders!

Jamie said...

Worse than Hodgson - that's impossible! I still wake up in themiddle of the night with nightmares of konchesky and poulsen!! He gave me some of my lowest times watching Liverpool - clueless to our ethos

gilstrap said...

all for 20m ...so how does that work....so we have to get a top quality player for 7m ...with the chance to play for a coach he wont have heard of and no europe...its a non starter

gilstrap said...

its laudrups and clarkes as well only they have a lot less resources

gilstrap said...

but will fsg give suarez another year

Jamie said...

Carroll suarez henderson downing these guys weren't cheap?!

Jason Carr said...

just shit this year rodgers has took us two a whole new level,hodgeson was bad but kenny resqued that season

Jason Carr said...

but they did not have a plan

gilstrap said...

last season we where in two finals and had the promise of europe

gilstrap said...

i cant get my headround why people trust rogers ...this is a guy who plays injured players before fit players to massage his ego

Jason Carr said...

that was there good will gesture its downhill from now on

gilstrap said...

we will not sign alonso in the summer that im sure of

Jamie said...

I think I remember boro or sheff wed being in the two cup finals and getting relegated - surely league improvement into CL shows true progression over carling cup? - plus it's more lucrative - I loved the day out but selfishly prefer to be in spurs position who've steadily improved and taken our spot as CL regulars

Silverfox said...

so now tell us something weo dont know!

gilstrap said...

we may as well sell him now then and get more cash...there is no way we will break into the top 4 next year ....our best cb is retiring and two of the other 3 want out.....gerrard will be a year older in a midfield which sees rogers pick an injured allen over uninjured better players.....that coupled with the return of carroll if we dont sell will mean we have another and i stress another unhappy player on our books that needs his wages playing ....dream on campers

Jamie said...

Love your posts! I can honestly only count a handful (if that) of truly bad performances this season...do you not enjoy watching thisvtmyear?! Do you think he's really doing that bad wwith what he's got?

Jason Carr said...

did you know jaimie is a livingston fan(scottish football0lol;-)

Jason Carr said...

i think its the hippy bigrade peace and love man

gilstrap said...

im not sure how getting beat 3 1 every several games is that much of an improvement...and thats with having lucas and Suarez playing

Jamie said...

I can't think of many managers without ego or those who won't hold up their hands and admit they've made mistakes in their time. Im not blind - I dont think he's the finished article yet and I'm sure he'd admit that too- but were both growing - I love his style of play and I like that he brings through the kids...all the best have to start somewhere and unless your an obvious wrongon like hodgson I've supported all our managers in their first season!

gilstrap said...

you mean all the kids he played no part in bringing to the club....he had no option to play them as he signed crap and let players go

Jamie said...

Trust me it hurts send frustrates me as much as everyone ekelse but old saying let's see where we finish - surely has to be an improvement on last year

Jamie said...

I think your right - although would love for it to happen if the price is right - that boy had vision bravestarr would be proud of

Jason Carr said...

obvious wrong one like hodgeson ?rodgers was as bad so why not give hodgeson a full season ,because hes young brainwashed by a plan,

Jamie said...

Hodgson swapped dale valle and kacanlic to get konchesky - swampd potential for proven shite. He played sterile foot he ball which the players came out and said they didn't enjoy. Complete opposite with rogers

Jamie said...

No I credit rafa for that - share he left - I said BR shares a similar European style of play which I as a supporter who watches games enjoys .to watch.

Jamie said...

Carr-ma Carr-malean

Jamie said...

If reports are to be believed arsenal wanted him too but he came to us! i was over the moon and gutted it didn't work out but to make those comments...after sitting on the bench at madrid? well hindsights a wonderful thing - ask Torres

Jamie said...

Vanity over sanity

VermHat said...

Alonso is still a great player, and I'd love him back, but I don't see where he fits in and considering the money (transfer fee and wages) I can't help but feel that not trying to find the next Alonso and instead going for the comfort of an favourite would be a classic Liverpool move.

Spiv said...

I'm confident FSG will make the correct funds available during this summer's transfer window. They now have in place a manager they believe is taking the squad in the right direction and will help him improve the quality he has which also ensures keeping the club's star assets.


FSG are businessmen first and foremost. However, they now should have enough knowledge to understand what is required in the Premier League in order to keep improving. LFC may still finish 7th this season BUT the club's form so far during the the second half of this season is Champions League form. So there is proof that the team is moving in the right direction.
I really believe if BR hadn't turned things around LFC would be seeing a lot less activity in the transfer market this summer and FSG's 5yr plan would start turning into a 10yr plan or a plan to sell.


The other point worth noting is many first team players won't move the season before a World Cup as they want to be assured of their place in their national team's starting line-up. Furthermore, the clubs know they have a chance for their star assets' stock to rise as a result of a good tournament.
Suarez could be sold this summer for as much as £40-50M. But if Uruguay have a a good tournament next year and make it to the semis again with Suarez as their star man - it was Diego Forlan last tournament - then you may even see as much as £60+M being shelled out for his services by a top European club.


It's likely both Reina and Skrtel will look for moves away this summer. Reina has a real opportunity to join Barcelona and Skrtel doesn't look like he's guaranteed a regular spot and he'll be wanting to play regularly ahead of the World Cup.
Between the two of them I believe LFC can raise at least £30M. Perhaps another £10-15M can also be raised from selling for Pacheco, Assaidi, Borini & Brad Jones.
If FSG were to commit say another £15M on top of that then there could be a summer spend of approx £60M to spend in this summer's transfer window. That is enough money to find quality replacements for a keeper, centre back, a back striker and perhaps another winger.


However, if we don't spend at least £40M in the summer, then I fear we won't make the top four next season and risk losing Suarez.
Let's hope FSG see the situation in a similar light!

ahmed said...

there is no point to argue with jason carr carachter
he is OBVOIUSLY AND CLEARLY A RETARD

RedTom said...

I wish I had the optimism of some here and in essence you would need to be psychic to believe Rodgers will bring success as there is no track record. What he has done is to install a slow tempo passing game that enables the opposition to get into position and become difficult to break down.


This season we have become defensively frail as BR has adopted a Keegan-esque approach to the game, i.e. if you attack you don't need to defend. Our midfield at times resembles a colander and we are vulnerable to the counter attack and set pieces. It's funny that because Rodgers uses zonal marking no one bats an eye lid, but because Rafa did too - it was a stick to beat him with.


We are also vulnerable when teams press us. This is what annoys me the most as games against WBA, Stoke, Swansea, Oldham were games where the same managerial mistakes were made. For me this was stubborness on Rodgers' part, or he does not believe in adapting the game plan for each opposing team. This was Hodgson's failing too, as he never took on board the opposition scouting reports, instead relying on the same approach game after game.


I hope Rodgers learns from his mistakes and appoints a defensive coach soon otherwise we are going nowhere. Reminds me a lot of the Roy Evans era - lovely football but a soft centre. I also don't think Rodgers is used to working with big names and what is the deal with looking to sign Swansea players.



In my view, Rodgers should be fired for the way we limped out of the domestic cups alone, let alone the failure to finish top four. Those were the criteria imposed on the king, why should Rodgers be any different. At least Kenny got us to two cup finals.


You guys who think BR will bring success as doing just that, 'thinking. It ain't gonna happen guys. When a manager talks about experienced internationals not making defensive errors in 12 months time, you know his silly idea of death by football ain't gonna work.

ahmed said...

did you know suarez as well have one of those??
40 million euros...FSG are way over their heads if this is true...

ahmed said...

great jamie also someone who cleary sees the big picture
sterling had to play 30 games before we got coutinho so the kid who by the way just turned 18, this jason carr person is a a plastic fan, cheers when we win and wants to sell the whole club, sack rodgers and sell the whole team, and i honestly feel the club would have been much better with real support, with patient understanding fans not crap doomgloomers like jason carr, a rubbish human being by all proportions

trev said...

in all honesty if we dont get money we cant blame rodgers hes not a miracle worker if fsg dont push us forward theres no manager in the world to make a difference we will never be a force again without real investment

ahmed said...

i think you are the only complete joke....honestly liverpool would have been much better off with real fans than crap like you

Jamie said...

True - we could follow the rangers or Portsmouth model I guess - apart from man city & Chelsea there the only team to have come close to winning the EPL in recent years - spending less than us - now there patience has paid off and they are in a strong position to compete financially - having a crap year this year and still better off than us with more money to spend in the summer - I'm jealous

Clyde Best said...

No you did not say that, but you did repeatedly say 'dose' instead of 'does'. Why?

lowey said...

Alonso-torres-hangeland, 2 out of the three probably signing in the summer is doing the rounds in Liverpool.all depending on the deadwood we need to shift ie skrtel carroll etc, don't rule out allen being moved on

Adam Griffin said...

He's doing no worse than Kenny

RedWill said...

I agree with Cavani and i think Suarez will stay for another season but will leave if we fair again next year. i also agree that its only right for a player such as Suarez to play in the CL. The next one is a massive season.


Although FSG are run by business men, this does not mean that they will sell Suarez this summer should a big offer comes in. They know that asset stripping devalues a company and will Suarez on a long contract they know they will still be able to obtain high market value in 2014.

rubyrm said...

Suarez should be warned, Strikers who left Liverpool in their prime just never made it elsewhere.

DILLBOY said...

We wont finish top 4 next season.Im not keen on Rodgers 4-3-3 formation and i have noticed there is not much adaption in our play.if its not working were buggered cause Rodgers only has 1 way of playing.thats why we wont get top 4.i noticed swansea last season would win big or lose big which has been happening to us a lot this season too.I knew Allen and Borrini were going to be bad buys too although some of you will say they need more time.

Jason Carr said...

oh this time last year we were garunteed european football and had an fa cup to look forward two

Jason Carr said...

so you agree fsg are not taking us forward

Jason Carr said...

no carrma from me sack him kick fsg out up the revolution

Jason Carr said...

and a big fat payday for someone

Jason Carr said...

well said

JC said...

Jamie scare mongering and as per late! Just pick out the bits to make a story and that's your job done ey!

Of course he wants CL and its fair to him n Liverpool that if he stays and they fail then he will be allowed to go. No grief no hard feelings seems fair to both parties.

Jamie said...

Well said, true we have been frail at times, moreover the first half of the season when a MASSIVE transformation in playing style was being implemented on the fly - but stats from our recent 13 games show we have been able to break the opposition down - and our defence has been solid, if I agree inconsistent.
Yes high pressing is obviously a problem for us atm - but I feel that comes down to technical & tactical limitations of our DEF's when playing BR's methods. It comes down to your defenders needing just as much confidence, awareness and ability than just being able to 'defend' - so I look forward to seeing us add more quality there. I'm not surprised at inconsistency when are defenders arent good enough to perform with that quality under pressure at this level.
For the record I'm the most disappointed Rafa left - the guy was a blessing - not only did he give me my greatest memory as a fan - he had a vision a plan for LFC and we are reaping the benefits and will for a long time to come. Even he made well documented mistakes, I dont know a manager who doesnt, or hasnt! Is that even possible?!?!

Jamie said...

Just when I was starting to lose faith - spot on!

Adam Griffin said...

Ignore the fact that this time last year Kenny had us 3 points worse off than Rodgers has us right now, despite massively contrasting starts to the year, and we then went on to produce the worst end of season run in club history. We only have to pick up 7 points from the last 8 games in this season to match what Kenny did last year. I'll be gob-smacked if we don't end up at least 10 points better off. The league is the benchmark, you know it, everyone else knows it, there is no getting past it. I'm not sure what excuse you'll come up with when we do finish with a clearly superior record. Rodgers, for all his incompetence and failure, will comfortably beat Kenny's single season league result, all while implementing a totally new style of football in his first year at the club and with a fraction of the money to spend.

Jason Carr said...

f"cking excuses he mite have 3 points more because we have done naff all in the cups ,also he has had suarez all season another reason he mite have 3points more and finally he has spent over 50million and used kennys singings as well well worth the 3points we also only need to concide one more goal to equal last seasons entire total for the season ,we can all pick stats out to show our favourites in a better light,we will go nowhere with rodgers like rafa used to say fact

chima christiantus said...

plse do everything within ur powers to keep luis for one more season plse

lowey said...

and the rest of his contract, and some

Adam Griffin said...

So what is it? Kenny is your favourite and Rodgers is mine? This is all just speculative opinion? You'd have a bloke sacked and replaced because he's not your "favourite"? Get over it Jas, what happens at Liverpool is far more important than your own personal hunches about who is a good manager and who isn't. No matter what has happened, no one can argue that we're not just as good a team this year under Rodgers than we were under Kenny. We're playing just as good football, getting the same indifferent results. I just can't fathom the kind of logic that would say we need to sack a manager who will almost certainly have us finish higher in the league that his predecessor. Rodgers has focused on the league and produced an improvement. While that continues to happen only a madman would get rid of him. 5-10 points improvement each season will eventually win us the league, even you can see that. That's what's happening, and if it stops happening and we start going backwards again then he'll lose his job.

I knew it wasn't you, but I imagined what he posted coming from your mouth because of the same name and similar opinion(and wishes in your case) of Suarez leaving- in that context it was funny.
Shouldn't be regarded to as a master class joke, but it is a funny coincidence... Do you know what I mean, did I explain it well?
