Does Frank de Boer Want to Replace Brendan Rodgers?

ITStheGP: Whoa! The site theme has gone from red to black (for me at least). Truly dark days. To quote Will Gregorich, " Liverpool is going through a goth phase "

Rodgers Has Earned His Sacking “Frenzy” and Has Little Time to Put Things Right

Indy Red: Really, it works with anything. Without being sexist, without being racist, without being a jerk, without being mean, etc. It always guarantees you are going to be that. Kind of like saying with all due respect means you are probably going to be disrespectful.

RogerTheShrubber: I don't want to sound racist, here
But I think you’re all lovely people and I enjoy our correspondence.

Liverpool FC Transfer Rumours: Reds Battle Tottenham for German Starlet

I didn’t realize Fenerbahçe was looking for more young talented wingers on loan. Nice of us to help them out if we get this kid.

Agreed with above, rather than dogpiling on him

I’d like to take this as more of a farewell opportunity. Firing Rodgers was certainly the correct decision – he ran out of ideas a year ago, and was perhaps out of his depth from the start. But he also took the team to the highest point I’ve ever seen as a Liverpool fan, and provided many iconic wins and moments along the way.

Sorry it didn’t work out, Brendan. YNWA.

Official: Brendan Rodgers Sacked as Liverpool Manager

Brendan Rodgers provided our best title challenge in a generation

The football we played between December 2013 and May 2014 was superb. He tried his best but couldn’t make it work after seeming to make the breakthrough in 2013-14. Such a shame but necessary.
