Absurd, stubborn team selections…
Where do we begin, here…
Against Real Madrid in the Champions League, Liverpool put out a second string, virtually conceding the game, in the hope that they would be fresher for the Premier League.
The reason Rodgers wanted his squad fresh for the Premier League is so that they could qualify for next term’s Champions League.
BUT GUYS – YOU’RE ALREADY IN THE COMPETITION.
They didn’t qualify from the group, and they didn’t deserve to either.
Rodgers has continually switched Steven Gerrard’s position, played Raheem Sterling wide when he’s better centrally, occasionally used Henderson on the left or the right, used Johnson, Manquillo and Enrique ahead of the clearly talented Moreno; and turned the mercurial Brazilian international playmaker Coutinho into a benchwarmer at the expense of Joe Allen.
Brendan Rodgers is living on borrowed time. Fact.
