On Wasted Seasons and Tarnished Legacies

If Rodgers’ shortcomings have been so largely based on his inability to deal with the Gerrard situation, what a spectacularly stupid thing it would be for club to move on from him right as Gerrard is leaving.

— nihil in moderato
The season is only "wasted" if you define its worth by its failures.

We didn’t win a trophy. We were never likely to.
We aren’t likely to finish top four. Once United chose to spend, we were never likely to.
We haven’t scored or played like last season. Once Luis left, that style went with him (or should have).

I’m not arguing for low expectations. That’s not what Liverpool’s about.
I am arguing that we shouldn’t equate failure with wasted effort. Everybody fails all. the. time. To define worth by success is to be perpetually, irreparably miserable. Because we’re going to fail far, far more than we’re going to succeed. That’s true regardless of the manager’s decisions or Stevie’s legs.

I’ve enjoyed watching Liverpool Football Club, even when we’ve lost. I’ve enjoyed watching Steven Gerrard play, even when he’s played poorly.
I refuse to see that as a waste.

Rating Rodgers' Reds: Year Zero

Joe Allen is the glue in plywood
Without Joe Allen you have several useless thin sheets of wood floating around, with Joe Allen you have a functional piece of wood greater than the sum of its parts. Hit for me too.

Liverpool Beating Manchester United to Memphis Depay

I read the article and was all, everything's...not...the worst?

Luis Suarez Dentist had some thoughts on Brendan Rodgers' mismanagement of Steven Gerrard this season. If you like Ciro Immboile puns, there's an entire comments section filled with them.

Origi Looking Forward to Liverpool Move

Either we buy Vietto or we harvest Dejan’s ligaments and tendons and use them to rebuild Daniel Sturridge. I leave it up to the transfer committee to decide which route makes more sense.
