"Foundations For the new stadium? Thought not. This season has been a total disaster BR. And if you don't at least achieve a Europe slot, we will have gone backwards. So the only pride on Merseyside is your own. Especially if we finish behind bitters."

"remember BR that we won't ever get the luck we had last Sunday! we need a ready come back to play on our usual high standard or the dream of european football could get vain very soon! Let's hope you keep insisting with Hendo in the middle of the park and remember that on the bench we have a striker like Daniel Sturridge who is pawing the ground and reclaim to be regular! YNWA"

"I truly hope BR succeeds. If he does we all win. But he talks too much, without being a little more truthful. There have been too many sub par performances this season. It's becoming a habit to say 'it was a blip that we will learn from.' How much learning do you need before you correct the defensive mistakes? Hope FSG are assessing things correctly."

"We are certainly going in the right direction and the foundations are being laid. If we get the expected quality signings in the summer then we will go on and do damage next season. I am so excited about seeing the likes of Sturridge and Coutinho flourish. We have an enthralling team and its only going to get better. "

"i think it's fair to say next season is BR's make or break season. getting us into that top 4 is a must, our defence needs improvement and the players should have adapted well to BR's passing game and be more faster when going forward. hopefully BR will succeed and we must back him and team as supporters."

"I feel BR is always talking more than what he does..If he thinks our team is getting better let him put it in practice. I know we are improving but we do not need to advertise..Just keep calm and concentrate in playing good football. He is here only to Improve the team and I can't understand why he is so much proud of sayings things like this everytime..Keep calm please."

"Gotta agree Mushroom. The paragraph about the sports science etc is just more spin. Thats what happens whenever a new manager joins a club! I want BR to succeed, cos if he does LFC do. But, with all his talk about next season, he's given out plenty of bullets if he fails to deliver."

"Think some people need to listen to themselves! We've had 2 second place finishes in the League in 20 years - and suddenly it's win or bust for a manager who's only been in the job for 10 months, not even a full season! Get real, will ya! We don't want a Chelski revolving door, buying success short term. That's not the club I've supported for over 40 years!"

BR makes an intelligent comment about progress and folks like Rushjob claim its just spin, but when our board don't talk he is the first to criticised them for being reticent. Damned if you do or damned if you don't, lol. "

"Rushjob you sound like you want BR to fail. He is simply setting the high standards we should all be applauding. Would you rather he say we are playing for mid-table or maybe take a leaf out of our astute owners book and say nothing. You either want a positive manager or a reticent one - pick one sir. "

"It is hard to take not being in the champs league again but we need to realize just how much has changed right through the club and that is all that Rodgers is trying to say. At the start of the season most of us bought into Rodgers philosophy but we haven't been prepared for the results of such an overhaul. Let's see how this season pans out and look forward to the next."

"to be quite honest brendon hasnt done that much of a bad job given he only had a handfull of players at pre-season. Next season is where we will flourish i can feel it coming along nicely. We just need more Steel in our team, someone with physical presence such as yaya but hes signed another contract cont."

"Rushjob _ A famous saying is that Rome wasn't built is a day as you know. We have had over 20 years of not winning the trophies we all want. This year was going to be one of assessment and change. Manure/Red nose did not just come in and win in his first season. I have faith in BR and if we get 2 to 3 more players of the right quality we will be challenging."

5th Apr 2013 13:27
"LFC1958- Totally agree. Would actually have more belief if honesty was the name of the game though. If BR came out and said 'compared to last season, we've possibly regressed a little, but we had to to move forward' id be fine with that. But no trophies and 7th simply isnt 'progress' as we are being told- IMO."

"I wish BR would realise that we are not playing in the Spanish League where there is no contact and the game is more like basketball. Our PL demands a strong physical presence. All BR's recruits have been injured.I worry that we are to flimsy to compete"

"If you take out the names from this article you would think that BR is talking about a club that was playing in the first Division for the last 10 years. And it's normal outcome not an achievement to have less injuries when you are playing in just one competition for half of the season."

" BRadmirer: we were watching Liverpool play football last season. Same as we were for the previous 30 + seasons. Don't be so confrontational. It just makes you look silly and immature and therefore irrelevant mate. People have their personal views, you can agree or disagree, but stop the name calling it's very childish."

"...Poor buys in Allen and Borini.Sturridge may turn out to be a decent buy. If you consider that we had to replace Kuyt,Bellamy,Maxi and Carroll then the overall squad is weaker than last season.Undoubtedly FSG will give BR another year which will make or break him."

"what do mushrooms grow on top of?! Newcastle were above us- now? Yes,they're in the EL but I think you'd have to say they're in a worse position. Progress- how about losing in all the semi-finals but finishing 12th? Or 5th but out of all cups at first game? Different interpretations, but I think BR has it right-outplayed some top teams and thrashed others if we've not got the points we deserve."
