The Week in Search Terms: Brendan Rodgers Sack

New, comments

People find their way to the Liverpool Offside using all kinds of search terms. Some of those terms can seem strange, unusual, or just in need of an answer. Here are a few of them.

suso injury return

Suso returned to individual training late last month after he had to undergo surgery following a groin injury in early October. While he's not quite ready to join his teammates yet, he's expected to be fully fit within another week or two. With the end of December having been the set target for his return from the moment his absence was announced, it appears as though he's right on schedule.

You've come to the right place, friend.

He's busy playing FIFA right now and we're not allowed to disturb him, but if you'd like to give us a message we'll be sure to pass it along.

No, but New Balance are taking over Warrior's kit deal. New Balance are the parent company, and they're looking to boost their visibility in the Asian market by taking over. Warrior, meanwhile, after a largely unsuccessful attempt to establish themselves in the football marketplace, are going back to what they do best—American college lacrosse and frat house humour.

jerkiest

Apparently it's a real word. A superlative adjective. I know, I thought it was, like, a totally made up, say it like you're a SoCal cliche word for, like, when you want to call out someone who's like the jerkiest jerk ever. But I guess you might reasonably want to be able to say your ride down a gravel road in a car with blown shocks was the jerkiest ride you've ever had. So. Jerkiest. It's a real word.

Cribbage, mainly.

You could give Monaco Bike Pro a shot. From Place d'Armes you want to take Boulevard Charles III south until you get to Place du Canton. Take a right onto Tunnel Dorsale until you get to Rue Grimaldi. Turn right, then take the first left onto Rue Baron de Sainte-Suzanne and the shop should be there on your right-hand side. Or just ask your chauffeur to figure it out.

brendan rodgers sack

Have you tried Etsy? Because I hear they're the place for odd, one-off items and collectable bric-a-brac. So they might have a sack with Brendan Rodgers' face on it. Or even a woven sack in the shape of Brendan Rodgers. Life-sized, of course. As for us, we're still looking for a t-shirt with a silk-screen image of Brendan Rodgers contemplating his painting of Brendan Rodgers.

On the other hand, if you're asking if he's been fired yet, we're pretty sure the answer's still no. And that seems right. While some might call for change simply for the sake of it, firing Rodgers today would mean replacing him with an interim, caretaker manager. Because there isn't a long list of A-List candidates battering down FSG's doors to abandon their current positions and make a mid-season switch.

Rodgers remains a hugely promising manager, one who helped Liverpool to second last season, and dumping him for a caretaker or the sort of warmed-over retread who would be available right now wouldn't suddenly put Liverpool in the title fight. Better, then, to give him the time to see if he can right the ship and deliver on that promise.
