Brendan Rodgers will NOT be sacked when he meets with Liverpool’s owners for our end of season review next month. However, our board will be looking for assurances that the Northern Irishman is the right man to take us forward.

Liverpool transfer news
This is news that has already been implied by several major news sources – including here, by The Independent – but the Daily Mirror believe that they can shed more light on the story thanks to ‘a senior Anfield source’ – don’t you just love it when the tabloids use those…
Our senior source believes that Rodgers’ future will hinge on whatever he tells his superiors in the next two weeks, with Fenway Sports Group president Mike Gordon set to lead a debrief of our disappointing campaign.
Gordon will be demanding answers about our sixth place finish and looking for a proof that Rodgers, not outgoing Borussia Dortmund manager Jurgen Klopp, is going to be the man to bring success back to Anfield after three years without a trophy.
The general perception seems to be that FSG will give Rodgers more time. It’s news that will frustrate a lot of Liverpool fans, particularly after last weekend’s 6-1 mauling at the hands of Stoke City – that’s the last time we’ll remind you of it, we promise – but it’s important that we now get behind our man.
A lot of things went against Rodgers this season that were out of his control – enforced player sales, injuries to key players, lengthy and still ongoing contract sagas… it’s not been an easy job. Let’s remember how close he came to winning the Premier League title twelve months ago and give him the chance to put things right.
After all, whether we like it or not, that’s what he’s going to get.
