Moreno-Killer? Liverpool contact Euro giants to sign 'immense' €20m international who's 'unhappy on the bench'

Liverpool have signed three players since the end of the recent train-wreck of a season, and new reports suggest that the Reds are considering a summer move for Paris St. Germain left-back Lucas Digne.

According to French newspaper L'Equipe this week:

* Liverpool have made an official 'enquiry' about Digne's availability.

* Roma are also interested in the 21-year old, who is allegedly valued at €20m by PSG.

In December, Digne's agent, Mikkel Beck, blasted PSG for condemning the youngster to constant bench duty. He told Le 10 Sport:

"I know he is unhappy on the bench, and he wants to play more. However, his anger and frustration give him the strength to try even harder in training, or when he has the chance to be on the field"

Some info about Digne, hailed as an 'immense hope of French football' by PSG president Nasser Al Khelaifi:

* Left-back who can also play left-midfield.

* Cost PSG €15m in 2013.

* A measly 44 appearances in 2 seasons for PSG (average of 22 apps per year)

* 8 apps for the France national team.

* 2013: Helped France win the U20 World Cup.

* Recently lost his place in the France team as a result of reduced playing time at PSG.

* Only one significant injury so far (sprained ankle last season)

* Liverpool were linked with Digne back in 2013, and after signing for PSG, he rejected the suggestion that may regret the move to Paris. He told reporters: "I knew that I would be competing with big players if I chose PSG. I think it would be sad to have any regrets after just one month".

* When asked in May if he regretted his decision to sign for PSG, he told reporters: "No. I showed that I was ready to tackle a huge project at age 20, which shows I have the character to succeed at the highest level"

This seems like a strange link considering the Reds already have Alberto Moreno in the squad, a player who only signed for the club last summer:

* If Rodgers is genuinely interested in Digne, then it suggests a lack of confidence in the Moreno's ability to be Liverpool's long-term solution at left-back.


* With Glen Johnson now gone, and Javier Manquillo failing to hold down a regular place, Liverpool are in desperate need of a right-back, it's possible Rodgers is planning to play Digne on the right.

* It could also be the case that Rodgers is thinking of moving Moreno to the right, and using Digne on the left. Both ideas are nonsensical (IMO), but given the manager's frustrating propensity for square pegs in round holes, it's definitely a possibility.

* It's also possible that Digne is a potential replacement for Jose Enrique, who is too injury prone to be a serious option for the Reds.

In my view, left-back is not a priority position for Liverpool right now, but overall, the club is admittedly short of top-quality full-back options, and given Digne's perennial bench status at PSG, he may be amenable to a move.

On the other hand, he has 7 trophies to his name in two years, including two league titles, and there's little chance of him replicating that success at Liverpool (under Rodgers).

Worth pursuing?

    makes no sense imo moreno is good enough not his fault liverpool have no defensive strategy... thats what u get with no DEF Coach...

    ReplyDelete
  4. I think we're fine with Moreno, on a side note Aspas sold to sevilla who have apparently sold on to Celta Vigo

    ReplyDelete
  5. Hes definately not good enough. His awareness is so poor he shouldnt be allowed to play football, especially not as a defender. He has good work rate and pace but hes very wasteful in crossing and possession. Always under pressure on his left, abit like sakho(good player). Morenos mistakes are too costly, especially the 2 mistakes against united, they were just silly and criminal.

    Anyone but moreno. We need new full backs for sure. Maybe we should go for Coentrao. Hed be cheap and is top class and experienced.

    Buy reus for 40m to replace overrated sterling, yarmolenko to play right for 20m, and play ings or origi uptop.

    ...........milner/hendo....can
    Yarmolenko.......coutinho.....reus
    ...........................ings

    Ings or origi may not be world class but at least they come with pace, something lambert borini balotelli lack. And our play needs pacey forwards for coutinho/hendo passes. To be fair i know we need aworld class striker, but if we put quality and goals on our wings, ings and origi will succeed without so much pressure on them.

  6. Were not fine with moreno. At the start of the season he never tracked jovetic run and he scored. He never learnt his lesson and mata punished him, and mata nowhere near as fast as moreno.

    If we go into the season with moreno 1st choice, I wont be happy.

    We should even try for felipe luis. He seems to have found the perfect partnership and linkup play with coutinho. Felipe luis a top player. Chelsea just want the money they paid. Hes experienced, a title winner and incredibly fast and not wasteful

    moreno was good at sevilla (won the europa league), Lovren was good at southhampton... the difference between now and there sudden drastic dip in form is the lack of a defensive coach.... so i don't agree with u that moreno is not good enough...ings imo is not good enough for this LFC team and don't get me started on 29 year old james milner wouldn't be anywhere near my starting 11.... reus signed a contract recently so doubt he's going anywhere... maybe when Klopp comes that may change.... i agree with the pacey forwards and i would love aubameyang at LFC he is so underrated.... i agree with the yarmolenko link and imo he should be worth a punt... also if LFC was going after free players why not konoplyanka??? I hope we do some real transfer business as I for one am not pleased at what we have done so far

  9. Sorry but I have lost all faith in BR's style of management onfield. LFC is a graveyard for young players unless the incoming young player is capable of playing good at at least 3-4 positions within his very first season. Else he will find himself frozen out of the squad as soon as he realised it's not even the end of his first season at a new club, probably a new country, ja, In Lazar Markovic I'm talking about.
    Some of the good examples to look at: Lazar Markovic: left winger, right winger & right wingback; Raheem Sterling: left attacking midfielder (13/14), right winger, right wingback, no.10 & striker. Jordan Henderson: left midfield, right midfield, central midfield, attacking midfield, holding midfielder, basically anywhere in the midfield and last but not least, right wingback.
    I'm not a football person, technically. I don't know how a team can excel in a 3-5-2/5-3-2 formation when one doesn't even have proper wingbacks on both sides. If the manager is so hellbend on the formation, he should get players in their natural positions to do the job. I will be really surprised to see positive results onfield when we have 'makeshift' players running all around the field. Placing in the table at the end of the season speaks louder than any words.
    I don't mind having players from teams of lower stature. But I'm very concerned about having a clueless manager experimenting with formations and players at the heights of the season (I won't use the word tinker because from left winger to right wingback is not considered a tinker, at least to me). Before BR is sacked, news about any incoming players won't excite me to the least bit. Anyway, there's certainly nothing exciting here to talk about with the management's persistent go-English policy.

  10. Rodgers claim to fame is that he develops young players ?

    At the rate he is going he will end more young players careers.
    Even Sterling has turned on him ?

    ReplyDelete
  11. Moreno was in the team to score goal , ala Spurs ?

    ReplyDelete
  12. Yup, starting all the way from Sahin to Borini to so many others. BR is a die-hard perennial atheist of the soccer term, natural position.

    Jaimie...LFC won`t sign anyone that`s worth more than whatever they end up paying for Danny Ings.....all incoming are going to be `freebies` at the rate we`re going...FSG just don`t want to give Rodgers any money(after the Tottenham transfer experiment from last season )...his only spend will come out of any player sales eg.Sterling....and what little he gets,he`ll blow again no doubt......roll on Jan and Jurgen Klopp !!!!!

    Reus? Hahaha. Dreaming. #1) Never have spent £40m on one player. #2) FSG don't buy top class players. #3) If you think Reus would join Liverpool you're as delusional as the mancs...If we're playing football manager Lacazette, Kondogbia and Clyne is all Liverpool need to challenge at the top.

    ReplyDelete
  15. Yet another prospect. Now t makes sense, that is the only market we can shop in 'the young player market' and this market is becoming a very expensive exercise for LFC. Burn down the academy...


    Then the player makes a name for himself using us as a stepping stone and then shows us the finger in the end.


    Enough is enough. We need ready made players, we have more than enough prospects. Enough is enough.

  16. Sterling has proven that helping young talent grow is not very rewarding !

    make sense

    ReplyDelete
  18. Moreno has made costly mistakes this season but the approach for Digne is about providing competition not ditching him which makes sense as long as we get a decent right back like Montoya or Clyne. Still no suggestion of us looking for a solid defensive midfielder to provide a shield for the back 4. Totally underwhelming so far.

    ReplyDelete
  19. Moreno is not consistent enough and not very good defensively. We definitely need a competition at LB position. We have 3 young RB's and our primary focus should be to add depth at LB position.

    exactly my point u don't just lose talent overnight... lallana was great at southampton, balotelli has scored the least goals under BR as compared to any other manager, mafkovic was a beast (and did score as a result of being in his right position in the internationals) at Benefica whats the difference between then and now... the manager.. Brendan Rodgers... he needs to leave the sooner the better

  21. Spot on mate in everything you've said.

  24. Needs to be competition at LB,Moreno costs goals and gets caught out to much.

    ReplyDelete
  25. What else did he do? Overall, he was bloody average. He seems to forget that he's also meant to defend.

    ReplyDelete
  26. I think Moreno needed the season to bed in he is young and i believe will be a very good player.
    Yes he has been a bit poor defensively but he has a good attacking edge.

    ReplyDelete
  27. Defend ,whats that ,we just out score opposition .

    ReplyDelete
  28. Ings is young and will only improve on what he does this season he fits into our set up and to me rather him than Lambert or Borini.

  29. voice of reason8:55 am, June 13, 2015

    BR doesn't care about defense... if i recall properly... in a press conference last season he made a snide remark with respect to the number of goals we scored by stating it was due to the defensive coach (i think not 100 per cent sure).... oh how that has come back to haunt him

    ReplyDelete
  30. At least Moreno shows some potential i am sure he will be a better player next season but he needs to play as a full back not a wing back.

    ReplyDelete
  31. voice of reason8:58 am, June 13, 2015

    i understand your point but ok the argument is ings will be 3rd or 4th ranked striker at the club... if that was the case why not promote yessil or sinclair and save the fees (tribunal fee may come back to bite us)... why go for ings if he is not a pegged on starter... this smacks of another comfort buy by BR.... short and english just how BR likes his players.... we need to drop BR the sooner more fans realize this the better

    ReplyDelete
  32. It is a strange window so far i am not sure where they are going with it.
    I realize the actual window has not opened yet but a quality striker and a D.M should be high on the agenda.

    ReplyDelete
  33. Moreno-killer? Phew, for a moment there I thought Raheem the Ripper had struck again.


    I think Moreno will eventually morph into a great left back for Liverpool; in all fairness he probably didn't know what hit him when he was thrown into Liverpool's shoddy defensive unit last season, but he seems to have all the tools required to become a success. Individual errors became a feature of his season, but by then uncertainty seemed to have spread through the ranks like a disease. He's young and will hopefully learn from those mistakes. Nonetheless, the idea of strong competition in his position (and every position) is appealing and something the club should strive for, but not at the expense of filling the weakest positions first. If we were to invest in another LB my feeling is that it should be a player with experience, not another young player.



    RB is clearly a priority, maybe Clyne, though I'm not sure my wounded pride can take another summer of being fleeced by Southampton. Montoya seems a solid, if unspectacular option.

    ReplyDelete
  34. Yeah but not everyone is a big a##hole like Raheem although 40 mill is not a bad reward.

    ReplyDelete
  35. voice of reason9:10 am, June 13, 2015

    i hope so too a quality striker and D.M are needed... but i don't know if that will be the case BR is seemingly pushing out our only quality D.M out of the club (Lucas)... and so far the only midfielder rumours going about is for Kovacic a CAM.... idk whats going on theres been no real rumours about a quality striker neither (Benteke is not what LFC need)... so i am clueless right now also theres no news on the firing off Marsh or Pascoe on the LFC website and no rumours on repacements... right now i think we are in shambles.... we need a quality striker, quality CDM (although i do like Emre Can), quality RB and maybe a RW.... oh and a new manager

  37. Your right about Reus but the 3 youve picked wont be coming either.

    ReplyDelete
  38. Perhaps waiting for Sterling's future to be sorted first. I imagine his fee will heavily influence our targets and budget for those positions.

    ReplyDelete
  39. Could well be i see City are spending up maybe we could squeeze Fernandinho and 25 mill from them.

    ReplyDelete
  40. Clyne might

    ReplyDelete
  41. Hmmmm probably get fleeced again mate.

    ReplyDelete
  42. Supposedly City are preparing an improved offer of £40 million as we speak, which seems a crazy amount to me. I hope we
    fleece them for every penny we can get but I just can't realistically see us being offered much more than that, so maybe it would be foolish to turn it down.

    ReplyDelete
  43. Which quality striker are hoping for? Sorry to ask but there's absolutely no need to think of that. Higuini ( our only realistic target ) is joining arsenal whilst Martinez will soon to be confirmed a Milan player...i keep hearing some pundits who haven't got any kind of football brain kept saying milner And CO are the best lfc can do.., it's a total nonsense!.ings & Bogdan are the best BRENDAN RODGERS CAN DO..look at Ac Milan, they are in a worst situation than us so how they have to managed to sign him is what I don't know.
    Re lfc : when you're signing ings, Bogdan etc (after a disastrous season ) it just shows how intent the manager is in making sure this club play in championship in two seasons time.

    ReplyDelete
  44. Yeah we are pushing it why shouldnt we? everyone fleeces us, i know its rare but a player plus cash deal would cut QPR out of a bit of dough.

    ReplyDelete
  45. Agreed, I'd forgotten about that damned sell-on clause.

    ReplyDelete
  46. Milner and Ings should be an improvement on some we should be shipping out Bogdan well i will put a wait n see on that.
    What striker you ask well dont worry about who we can afford but who will come theres your answer.

  47. 'The Book on Footballing Success'


    with contributions from Bob Paisley, Bill Shankly, Alex Fergeuson, Brian Clough, Fabio Capello, Carlo Ancellotti, Jupp Hynckes, Pep Guardiola and Jose Mourinho......... Rodgers has other ideas and plans on writing his own book!


    Extracts included are
    'never change a winning formula'
    on that one let's put ingredients into that formula that don't work like strawberries in a meat gravy or a top hat in a stew..


    'experience is a vital part of a winning team'
    lets build a team of unproven inexperienced players and anyone over 27 are just to old get rid off them as they are to old...


    'Spend wisely and bring in the right man for the job'


    let's hammer square pegs in round holes and pay over the odds for a player who hasn't done enough to warrant the price tag....


    'Show guidance, leadership and confidence'


    lets make bold and foolish remarks without the means to back it up, that back fire, call everyone amazing even when the team gets a bloomin good hiding and the player clearly isn't amazing...


    Rodgers and FSG are still intent on writing things the book their way............

    ReplyDelete
  48. He must've been smoking the same shit as the rest of the defence. I was still impressed by him though, in patches. I think he'll turn out to be one of BR's best acquisitions in the long run.

    ReplyDelete
  49. Just been reading that we'd like a deal that would include players being swapped with Sterling, Dzeko and Jovetic were mentioned. This would reduce the amount we'd have to give QPR. Makes sense to me, I personally would prefer Dzeko.

    ReplyDelete
  50. Fernandinho may be surplus to requirements i would try for him.

    ReplyDelete
  51. Milner is a big step up on most of the midfielders we have..

    ReplyDelete
  52. Never really been a massive fan of his myself. I think our main priority has to be sorting out our striker problems, hopefully sell Lambert, Borini and Balotelli, we've already brought in Origi and Ings. If we could add another experienced striker such as Dzeko I'd be optimistic. Probably dreaming though, BR would probably ask if Shaun Goater is available.

    ReplyDelete
  53. I said `most of` and at the moment he is better than emre can.he's a huge step up on allen and Lucas and I personally would have him before henderson

    ReplyDelete
  54. a two year old in trainers is better than joe allen i agree with that... but better than Lucas Leiva and Emre Can...... your having a laugh... if he is so good then why does he not start for City or Engalnd on a regular basis... actions speak louder than words and James Milner (29 years old) will not improve this LFC team one iotta... but hey guess we need a new RB right BR

    ReplyDelete
  55. Neither of them would be my first choice, I'd of probably picked Martinez from Porto but it looks like that ship has sailed. If we ended up with Jovetic I wouldn't be upset, the only thing that's put me off is like you said the injury record, we already have one sick note striker so don't need another. If city are desperate for Sterling and I really don't understand why, fleece them for everything we can.

    ReplyDelete
  56. EDIT: now saw the jordan henderson comment.... how is he better than hendo when he has had less assists than hendo for the last two seasons??

    ReplyDelete
  57. So that is what Rodgers has been doing this entire time - editing Wikipedia pages

    ReplyDelete
  58. I like emre can.think he has bags of potential but he still has a lot to do.I know he was played out of position.I like Lucas as well but milner has more to offer.and most of the Liverpool team wouldn't start for city..

    ReplyDelete
  59. Should have bought Ricardo Rodrigeuz before he really took off. Oh Well!.... LFC won't be paying the £30m it would cost to buy him now.

    ReplyDelete
  60. what does most of the LFC team not starting for city have to do with the argument? are u implying that because milner is not good enough for city that he is good enough for LFC? that is accepting mediocrity and imo is a big reason to date why BR is still at our club this tendency to accept sup-bar standards at the club... again i disagree a 29 year old Milner is not better than Can or Lucas and u are yet to tell me how a lower goal/assist milner for 2 seasons is better than hendo.... where are the facts to show me that milner is as good as some fans are making him out to be... i had this same argument with another fan about joe allen and how they proclaimed he was better than leiva.... well we all see what happened there... but i guess u will use the same arguement as those joe allen fans... a lack of understanding of what milner's footballing 'talent' can provide

    ReplyDelete
  61. :-) That sort of praise is reserved only for the finest players, so Kovacic should be well pleased to be joining an exclusive club that includes Iago Aspas, the lady that makes the tea in the Shankly Suite, and my nan.

  62. Had more games for City with their squad than Can, Lucas and Allen did with our squad.... What was that about actions? Not to mention Cities absolute desperation to keep him, and don't even bother trying to claim Home Grown quota's... The wages they offered him, they could fill that quota no problem.

    ReplyDelete
  63. I said he (IMO)was better than most of the midfielders we have. Everything isn't about stats.I think he's a better all-round player than Henderson and more consistent. Henderson had a good season but has a lot of improving to do.milner has different attributes to his game.and by the way (IMO) means in my opinion.so if you don't agree that's fine.

    ReplyDelete
  64. I hope so, wouldn't want him getting on the wrong side of some here... He'll probably chuck himself infront of a train just to get away from the abuse.

    ReplyDelete
  65. Wont happen either, we have all been crying out for a DM ever since Brendan rocked up, but he just doesn't think defensively... Attacking players are the only players he ever wants, and normally only attacking midfielders....To think the bloke was a defender.

    ReplyDelete
  66. why mention the home grown quota's then? it is obvious they we're trying to keep him if u recall under the FFP in 2014 i believe city was already warned about there low quota of engish players then this season they lost micah richards and milner... they we're desperate to keep him and its not a far stretch of the imagination to believe that to do so they tried to show him he mattered by playing him more they tried to do the same with adam johnson i think.... but hey sorry i forget james milner is obviously the english xavi LFC need.... ridiculous... start more games than allen, lucas and Can.... question how much lay off time did milner get for injuries compared to these three players for 2014/2015? how much times despite being fit has BR started these players despite Can and Leiva having better games at times than Gerrard (the Chelsea game comes to mind when Can was surprisingly dropped for the next match).... despite my name i am not a troll and i follow LFC vigorously

    ReplyDelete
  67. upvoting your own comments i see

    ReplyDelete
  68. my comment got moderated i think.. sigh... in a nut shell i was stating.... of course the home grown players is not why MCFC wanted to keep him when they were already warned in 2013 i think that they had a low quota of english players.... also how much times has milner been injured over the season compared to allen'levia and Can, and 14 of his appearances in the EPL we're substitutions btw (i could be wrong to tired to double check).... but hey praise Milner the English Xavi

    ReplyDelete
  83. What about the long unbeaten run second half of the season. Sterling was striker, Can at cb, and Marko and Ibe at rwb. That wasn't positive results? In the last two games we got drilled with everybody playing their normal positions except Can. Johnson has been garbage all season and it seems likely that that manquillo has a 20 game clause in his loan deal. I don't see how this argument about square pegs round holes is valid. Just seems like an excuse to slate the manager.

  99. Name one club with a specialized Def coach...


    We need a capable coaching STAFF... one guy won't change anything. Sure we might get someone who is better at working with the defense, but rarely do teams get someone specifically for that job only...

  102. Trippier perhaps, yes I know I've said it before but if we don't grab him someone else will and I think it's a sound investment. Add Montoya maybe and that's the right side depth sorted and perhaps Digne and Moreno on the left.
    Also, agree with what you say, how Moreno was meant to know what he was doing from one minute to the next last season is anyone's guess - several changes of position, tactics, role, formation and the same for the players around him can't have helped, think he'll improve this season.

  107. The Authors on LK are quick to write players off and don't give a lot of credit.. To suggest Manquillo had problems holding down a place is ridiculous, he was purely just fighting to get in the team, his first year in the premier league, at his age and with the language.. Give him a chance.. And Moreno -he had a good season when you consider Brendan used him as left back and left wing back, its a new league to him, he often had to worry about Sakho and Lovern, not saying he never done wrong but he is another youngster who learnt loads last year.. The guys need support from their own fans..

  108. Sounds like a good read, think I saw it on the shelves the other day, was it called "I did it my way" by Mr B.R Rodgers (his middle name is resplendent)
    ...Read how up and coming, forward thinking, super Manager Brendan, 'Brod' Rodgers stuck two fingers up at the establishment, shunned the way of old purple nose and went on to blow every stinking, miserable utd achievement out of the water...

  115. Montoya's representatives said Inter a big club, is a good destination for him if he is a starter. That means that a real big club like us in a better position in a better league with better salary just have to match Inter's valuation.

    ReplyDelete
  116. I don't really like Trippier or Clyne, oddly enough. There are some specific things a modern right back has to do well, some particular passes inside they have to be able to make reliably, and neither of them are outstanding at them from what I've seen.

    Our right back has to be able to recycle the ball into midfield securely as a priority -- it's as important as tackling and covering in that position -- and I wouldn't trust those lads, quite. That's why BR was putting technical players out there this season I guess. Has an obvious downside though doesn't it.

    I haven't seen a new right back that really caught my eye for ages. Wonder if it might be worth seeing how Spurs would feel about a £15m bid for Walker, or how hard Everton would fight to keep Coleman since they have Tyias Browning coming through...?

    ReplyDelete
  117. It's not valid, it's nonsense. But you can't win, these are the same people that have been calling for BR to leave from day one, for whatever reason. They got a taste for blood with Hodgson I reckon and now they wander the night, compelled to consume the vital essences of innocent football managers, without which they simply can't survive.

    ReplyDelete
  118. Garbutt is fantastic, but maybe too similar to Moreno -- same for Cresswell. But Tyrone Mings would offer variation. Quite a few very interesting English prospects at left-back. But where are the right-backs?!

  120. I agree you are delusional about Liverpool. Fans need to be clear headed at times. Historically speaking both Inter and Liverpool are there or there abouts. Liverpool couple more European cups, Inter never been relegated so a lot of it comes down to a player's preference.

  130. we need a new manager more than anything.
    Bring Klopp or any other manager of his stature.


    - Markovic will tear the defenses
    - Lovren will prove that he is an animal
    - Lallana will prove his creative flair
    - CAN will show the glimpses of Ballack
    - Balo will be a super sub


    We need to get rid of this amateur manager and players will regain their forms.Period.

    - Markovic was talented
    - Lambert was a utility striker
    - Sterling was the best young player in Europe


    This season:
    - Suddenly, all of them seemed to have forgotten their craft miraculously and turned to shit !


    It's all down to BR's poor man management and bizarre tactics.

  173. It's just a pet peeve of mine...


    People keep calling specifically for a "defensive coach", but in reality this position rarely exists. Steve Clarke was just a coach. Hyypia would be an assistant. Carra would just be a coach. There's rarely a distinction between purely and offensive or defensive coach. Last season, Villa was the only team to have a designated defensive coach. GK is really the only position that regularly has a specialty.

  176. Coleman is mustard, got to be honest and I hate to admit it but he is bloody good. That is worrying me slightly what you say re Trippier and Clyne.
    Less interested in Clyne myself, as feel we've missed the bargain boat with him but I do rate Trippier - now you make me gauge my recollections though, they are mainly from the halfway line onwards and I think he's very good.
    I watched a lot of Premiership and don't recall many others reliably crossing the ball as well as him which I think is a basic we're lacking in. Set pieces, he's similarly good and tracking back and actually defending, again, very good.
    Walker doesn't light my tinder to be honest, too keen to get forward and go for glory, don't remember him being a great crosser (I know that's not how we play but would be a nice thing for a RB/LB to have in their armoury instead of always trying to cut inside - Flanno can actually put a decent cross in I seem to remember, man I hope he gets back into the team), maybe a little too like Glen, although as with many others he's been hampered by injury.
    Montoya maybe?

    Sakho stormed out after not getting picked out for the Everton match... the captain of Danish team barely got a start by BR (in a latter interiew basically calling him two faced), Manquillo the most solid RB we have (according to any stat site) can not get a start for us, players are getting injured way to consecutively implying harsh training schedules (2013/2014 there were claims in the media that Moyes training routines were the cause of many injuries).. there is a long long long list that i can use to describe why i think BR is a horrible manager also he didnt want Balotelli in 2014 and 2013 respectively BR stated he has final say on all transfers... i'll leave it at that

    its basic common sense in the EPL there are 38 games per season if i am injured does that not reduce the number of games i can play???

  180. -Lovren was a beast last season, but I think that's more a testament to Soton's staff than anything. Everywhere else in his career he's largely been the same as he is now.
    -Lallana has been pretty classy, albeit not to last season's standards. The problem is he's lacking an end product and becoming too isolated, partially because of our formation change mid season.
    -Markovic was undergoing a major stylistic change. Not everyone is going to hit the ground running like Cou. Now, his loss of confidence and timid nature can probably be accredited to BR, but to say Marko no longer has talent is a bit unfair.
    -Sterling was the best young player in Europe under BR for 2 seasons. Last season nothing changed except expectation.


    I do agree however that everything that DID go wrong is because of BR's naivety in tactics and management. I just don't think everything is so terrible regarding the players you mentioned.

  188. Yeah it seems like a lot of people who post on this sight are completely blind and have no ability to rationalize. The handicaps that he is working with are plain to see, but those same handicaps are great for the long term stability and success of the club. The owners have a long term plan for the club but the fans are insatiable. The fans were let down by the players this season not Rodgers. Most of his decisions actually had a positive impact.
