Liverpool haven’t changed a bit
Liverpool ended last season in absolute disaster, with losses to Swansea, Sunderland, Wigan, Fulham, West Brom and QPR leading to the sacking of manager Kenny Dalglish.
The man to replace the Liverpool legend was Brendan Rodgers, who led Swansea City to an 11th place finish last season using his philosophy of passing, attacking football. With Rodgers’ fresh philosophy and some new faces such as Fabio Borini and Joe Allen, optimism for the upcoming season was growing at Anfield.
Within 90 minutes of the Reds’ 2012-13 campaign, that optimism had vanished. Liverpool were humiliated by West Brom, losing 3-0 with Daniel Agger seeing red. They looked exactly like the Liverpool of last season, only this time the unhappy man on the sidelines was different.
“The Rodgers Revolution” still has a very long way to go.
