Liverpool managing director Ian Ayre is full of praise for Brendan Rodgers and has admitted that it’s the very philosophy of their famous manager that has been the leading push behind the club’s prosperity all through the season.
With ten games remaining for 2013-14 schedule, Liverpool are in the 2nd status in Barclays Premier League, training the present lead Chelsea, by simply 4 points. Rodgers’ dynamic football and edgy attacking style have excited the Red fans & with around 73 strikes at 28 matches, Liverpool is the highest scorer of the division.
Ayre hailed up results as produced by the Northern Irish manager within less than a couple of years at helm post courageously taking up the enormous challenge of resurrecting Liverpool’s success.
“All of us had huge faith in Rodgers while he was taken in as new manager & I feel that he had quite a grand challenge before him”, noted Ayre. “All of us did, yet no body more than Rodgers as he arrives at one among the grandest of soccer clubs of the world. It’s needless to mention that expectations are always high here & so are the works.”
“In his initial season, he admitted that he had to work hard to find his feet & propagate his style & vision to the squad. I feel what we’ve found this very year would cheer growth & prosper in the team. And we would go on adding to our squad & backing him in having additional footballers into the squad.”
“Efforts from both Berndan & our footballers have been really astounding this time. I especially like the fact that Rodgers works with team & sets season into small chunks ensuring 4-5 game runs”, the managing director added further.

The manager of Liverpool, Brendan Rodgers, has said that Steven Gerrard might be used in a defensive role in the further matches as well.
Gerrard who is the skipper of the Reds generally plays in an attacking role, but, in the last match against Stoke City, he had made appearance as a defensive midfielder and had done well in that position. That prompted Rodgers to say that the veteran player might be seen playing back in the near future again.
Liverpool won that match against Stoke by a decent margin of 5-3 and moved up to no. 4 in the points table.
Talking to the reporters in the press conference at the end of that match, Rodgers said, “Steven is one of the versatile players in our squad. He can play almost everywhere and you feel great as a manager when you have got somebody like him. He brings a lot of variety to the team.”
“I will consider playing him back in the next games as well. He plays in a defensive role for England at times and does well. So, there is no reason why he can’t do that for us.”
“We both have had a conversation regarding it. We were just waiting for the right time. Today, we tried him in the deep and he didn’t play badly. Apart from that, he led the side fantastically well too.”
Liverpool is one of the strongest contenders to secure a Champions League spot this season. They have maintained their position in top 4 in the Premier league table since the start of the season. But, there is about half of the season still left and they will have to continue their form if they want to be in top 4 at the end of the season as well.

Liverpool is concerned about the fitness of their in-form forward Daniel Sturridge before Merseyside derby match with Everton. This season, Daniel relished a magnificent beginning. He picked up the deal leg while on nationals team’s responsibilities with England, but now there is a huge doubt regarding his availability against rivals Everton.
Brendan Rodgers confirmed the report during a press conference. He insisted that he former Chelsea player has a problem for several weeks and now this is just getting worse.
Rodgers told that he went to England with an injury. He had a dead leg for 3 – 4 weeks, and he has been playing through with it. He hardly trained when he left after the Fulham match. He added that the team would assess his fitness and they expect that he would be ready to play.
Brendan Rodgers said that Sturridge would guide him to decide whether he would be able to play or not. He would be asked by the coach whether how fit he is and he would be able to play or not. According to Brendon, managers are led by their players at times.
The Anfield club is already struggling with many injuries in their team with Jose Enrique joining the injured players’ list.
In the mean time, Steven Gerrard, the Liverpool captain, told that there would be a huge hole in his football career if he says good bye to the game without winning a English Premier League title.

Liverpool defender Daniel Agger was one of the names mentioned as possible transfer target for Barcelona in the summer. The Danish centre back is regarded as one of the finest in the world. He has been at Liverpool since January 2006, and it was thought that perhaps we would like a new challenge at this stage in his career.
The 28-year-old will also have a lot of opportunities to win trophies if he moves to Barcelona. However, the transfer rumours never materialised into serious business and Agger has been an important player for Liverpool this season. Continue reading ‘AGGER LINKEDrgb’

Liverpool suffered a second straight defeat in all competitions after a 1-0 defeat at the hands of arch rivals Manchester United. Before these two defeats, Liverpool were on a run that saw them proudly sit top of the table after a long time. However, the two back-to-back 1-0 defeats have taken the confidence out of the team. Manager Brendan Rodgers has said that he is happy with the way the season has so far turned out for the team. Even though he had brought in several new players in the summer, the former Swansea manager says that he is still not done with his purchases yet.
He is hoping to bring in some new players to the club in January, which is unlikely to go down well with the fans and owners. Several players including Victor Moses have arrived to the club during the summer. Even though they have made a good start, the last two defeats have made people stand up. Last season, the club finished a disappointing seventh in the Premier league under Rodgers. He said that Liverpool will definitely be able to challenge for top four this season, but he has now said that a top six position by January would be great for the team.
“The players have made an excellent start. We were disappointed at the weekend, we were a bit flat and subdued and just couldn’t really get going. Part of that was because of the players we have available, but I know that the players I have give absolutely everything. Now we can only concentrate on the league through to Christmas. We have to make sure we stay up in the top six in the league and keep fighting. Hopefully we can reinforce again in January,” said Rodgers, whose team play against Swansea during the weekend.
