Friends Of Liverpool

After the debacle of the last day of the Transfer-Window in which Liverpool failed to sign a couple of strikers, then the subsequent defeat at home to Arsenal, who did sign two goalscorers in Podolski and Giroud.

I have every sympathy for new Liverpool Manager, Brendan Rodgers.

He is now working with one hand tied behind his back, with the loss of Dirk Kuyt, Maxi, Craig Bellamy and Andy Carroll.

Liverpool are left with Luis Suarez who was very wasteful with the ball against Arsenal and Fabio Borini who needs to get up to speed with the demands of the Premier League very quickly.

Liverpool were directionless and wayward in possession against Arsenal. They seemed to be subdued by the failure of LFC to buy at least one new striker.

Passing was ok, except for the final third, where nothing seemed to stick.

Suarez and strangely, Steven Gerrard failed to hang on to the ball too often.

Arsenal were defensively very solid thanks to the introduction of Steve Bould as backs Coach this Season.

Mistakes were made in midfield for the first goal from Podolski and the second by Carzola was a low-hit pile-driver which gave Reina little chance.

So, we move on.Liverpool can still sign free-agents up until the 5th of September, so I expect Brendan Rodgers to bid for former double-red Michael Owen, Didier Drogba, who won’t want to join us.

But Nicolas Anelka might be worth chasing as he felt he left Liverpool too soon under Gerard Houllier way back.

Onwards and upwards Liverpool and you have my support in what you are trying to do Brendan Rodgers.
