The last words of Brendan Rodgers are all about changes. Players do not convert his ideas on the field and he felt embarrassed at Forest.
To read between the lines is often something you can do when you listen to football managers. Looking at their selection policy can also give answers to their words.
His talk about players is difficult to get the grip of as he points on the squad without singling out directly who the rotten eggs are.
To start a rebuild is of course possible but difficult as you have to be carefull with what you get in and a number as we know players in the Leicester squad have high value.
Brendan Rodgers last season had Wes Morgan and Christian Fuchs, both fantastic persons and as BR said himself, knowing their position and why they were still around. Both are gone and not at all replaced as the once coming in are totally different people. BR also made decissions regarding other experienced players such as Dennis Praet and Papy Mendy. Sending Praet on loan and Mendy just being a traning member and playing U.23’s and EFL Cup games. You then add four new faces that in real are either very young or two players that at this moment looks misfitting.
Leicester have won just four of their last 17 games in all competitions, with the Europa Conference League – a competition Rodgers claimed to have not heard of earlier this season – the Foxes only chance of silverware this season.
Liverpool and Anfield will be the most difficult arena to go to when you are looking for answers from players you describe as no longer hungry and being big headed.
TCF would like it to be different but recent team selections, change of systems leaves you in doubt.
Brendan Rodgers are by many rated as one of the best in his trade and as a coach he has been described as brilliant. But sadly the opposite has been seen lately as his ideas has not been good enough to add up wins as we have seen recently against Brighton and Forest.
We do not expect anything else than a Leicester team that takes on a battle at Anfield, but with a loss like the one we did see against Forest or a trashing of five or more goals we would see 4/1 being more or less down to 1/1.
This looks grim and to see Brendan Rodgers as a Leicester manager for the last time away at Anfield would not really come as a big surprise.
