OK ed, I agree Rijkaard has failed at Galatasaray, but by that measure we can also rule out Guus Hiddink, Joachim Loew, Vicente del Bosque and Luis Aragones, all of whom have similarly failed in Turkey. That leaves Graeme Souness. . {ed's note - yeah I know it is difficult, but I have heard similar talk of his time at Barca at Gala. He wants to treat the players as adults and gives them a lot more freedom, including allowing them more input in tactics. I just don't think that is what we need when we have spoilt brats currently playing for us rather than adults.}

That being the case Editor, could Rijkaard not kick out the spoilt brats and bring in players whe knows will tow the line? {ed's note - yes he could, I hope, if he gets the job he does so, but, when you consider one of the biggest brats is Gerrard, it is not easy. The manager would have to be absolutely sure of his position to take Gerrard on.}

Nobody is bigger than liverpool fc tho' ed, even stevie g - much as i admire the man. {ed's note - I fully agree and the man who comes in has to be supported over all the players to have a chance. We are in a similar position to United when Fergie took over. He had to come in and break up the cliques, he got rid of all the ones who challenged him early on, except for Bryan Robson who was willing to try and change his ways to keep in line. Whoever comes in and takes over our club has a similar job on his hands, the ability is there but the players just aren't performing.}

Ed? Do you think Torres will leave or is he just frustrated! {ed's note - impossible to say right now mate, so much could change by the time the transfer window comes around. But I doubt he will leave in January, teams don't tend to spend that kind of money in Jan, but it is the last chance before the new spending rules take effect.}

Laudrup, Pellegrini,

would want to spend big, NESV might not want that as they are prob the cheapest owners in premiership at the moment. Wont buy anyone a free drink.

O'Driscoll and Di Matteo

They seem bit light weight for liverpool football club. Maybe in a couple of years an d Di Matteo seems to be very happy with WBA.

Pellegrini seems to be someone who is out a job at the moment. Liverpool would really add something to his CV. But he would want 100m to spend. Didnt he purchase Kaka, Ronaldo, Karim Benzema. Went spending mad. {ed's note - the manager doesn't have any say in player purchases at Real Madrid, so you can't really judge. You would have to look at his time with Villareal (I think, I am probably getting confused again though, so sorry if I am) to get any indication of his spending habits. I seem to remember him not being a particularly big spender though.}

RE:Man.City have got unlimited funds mate and could buy Messi and C.Ronaldo no problem. Aswell as any other players who would want to play for them.

Man city have only one striking position and 4 strikers at the moment. They will get Rooney in and have 5 for one position. They won't buy Torres as well because you can only play two up front and Tevas + Rooney will be deadly.

They may go out and get a Kaka or C Ronaldo, but they are dif kinds of players.

I agree and don't think that Man.City will go for Torres. The point i was making is IF they wanted him or any other player then money is no object.

For me Torres IF he goes will go to Barca or Chelsea. IF he goes to Barca then it could give us a better chance of getting Llorente who for me and a few others think he's a quality player.

Just a bit curious as too who people think we would have signed during the summer if Pellegrini was appointed instead of Hodgson

Any ideas?
ed?
anyone? {ed's note - I would guess it would be players from the Spanish league or South America, though it is difficult to say because of the home grown ruling.}

I want someone like wenger at the club. Would love to see Mourinho. all Pipe dreams.

Hiddink would come in a stop gap measure. then again rafa benitez could be back if he fails in europe. He will be out of job come the summer.

Rjikaard seems to be a big name that is available.

Ed who would u like to see at Anfield for the next 10years {ed's note - I want someone who will get us playing good, attractive, attacking football. Someone who won't be afraid to play youngsters if need be or when they are good enough to force their way in. Someone who sees the job as a chance to build a dynasty rather than a chance to enhance their bank balance. I keep naming the same names over and over, but Laudrup, Pellegrini, O'Driscoll and Di Matteo all seem to fit the bill to me. Hopefully who ever comes in will bring back Roy Evans to help them.}

ED-

How about Zola or do you think he is just plain mad?

He did get West ham playin some great football last season.

PETER NUNN YNWA * * * * * {ed's note - I love Zola the man, he is probably the best foreign player of the Premier era, but I think he is too nice to make it as a manager. It would be good to see what he could do with better players, but he hasn't a clue on how to get a team to defend when they lose the ball. I don't think I would be keen on him myself.}

Ed- You shouldn't underestimate how much Rijkaard was undermined by senior officials at Barcelona. How can he keep his players in line when his bosses are briefing against him, in order to keep the players and fans happy?
One other point. Eto'o was never the best striker in the world. When Rijkaard was winning the league in Spain, the best around were Schevchenko and Henry. {ed's note - Eto'o was better in my opinion, he had far more to his game than Sheva and scored more than Henry, but it is difficult to compare them. I know what you are saying, but he has not exactly moved on and been a success in Turkey, that is telling for me.}

Hi ed, bit of a history lesson? Someone mentioned about Roy Evans coming back. . What are your thoughts on Evans as a manager and what happend when houlier came in ad joint gaffer? Was only a wee boy at the time. Thanks tom {ed's note - Evans and Moores didn't see eye to eye at all, Moores interfered constantly in team affairs and tried to get friendly with the players and become one of the lads. In doing so he would rescind fines and generally caused havoc with discipline, but Roy would just keep going due to his love for the club. Moores finally realised that it needed someone from outside to come in and instil discipline, as he had completely destroyed Roy's credibility with the players. Houllier was brought in to take over, the joint manager thing was a sham, Ged was always promised full control and only came in on the basis. I don't know if Roy Evans could have won us the league without Moores' interference, but I am very sure he could have got us a lot closer and while playing some fantastic football. I miss the excitement of going to the match in that time, the build up beforehand knowing that you were going to witness something special, even if the result wasn't always the one you wanted.}

Ed, a poster earlier mentioned John Toshack to replace Roy, Tosh was approached for the role Houllier got but declined cos he is mates with Roy Evans.
Tosh and Evans could be a possibility! doubt it but just a thought

Kopitetillidie {ed's note - I don't know what to think about Toshack, he is certainly not afraid to give kids a chance, he was the one who pushed Xabi forward. I do love Roy Evans though, I have so many fond memories of watching Liverpool under him. I don't think I would be upset if they got the job, I think I would actually be a little excited by it and look forward to watching us play instead of dreading it all the time.}

FAIR ENOUGH ED,

You said you wouldn't hate Rjikaard in charge but hes not your choice.

I always wanted Hiddink but felt his close relationship with Abrahmovic would get in the way. .

Cant really think of many other better options curently than Rjikaard

who else would be your choice?


PETER NUNN YNWA * * * * * {ed's note - I wouldn't want Hiddink because he is never going to stay long and build for the future. That is why I want someone younger, I won't bother saying O'Driscoll as, no matter what his merits, no one will take him seriously as he only manages Donnie. I have been impressed with Di Matteo, Michael Laudrup I like and he is a Liverpool fan, Pellegrini got Real Madrid a record points tally last season, those 3 surely have to be considered?}

Isn't it scary how a majority of Liverpool fan have no confidence in " the next" game!
Imagine what the players feel?
In never seen such a great and historic club lose so mush confidence. This ISN'T Liverpool this.
The football that's being played just simply isn't Liverpool.
The club needs a whole boost. Ownership issue eased and restored faith but isn't helping the confidence.
We need the fans to put their arm around each player and say " it's ok, were with you no matter what. You'll never walk alone". To do this, we'll need to sing their name, to be a voice, to support like it's the champions league.
Until things change our supporters must unite and be the 12th man. Let's make Anfield a fortress

Torres won't go if Rooney goes

If man city get rooney, they won't have money or space for Torres. I don't think alot of europe's big teams have that kind of money. They want him on the cheap for 15+18 million. But would be willing to weight for the contract to run down.

Man.City have got unlimited funds mate and could buy Messi and C.Ronaldo no problem. Aswell as any other players who would want to play for them.

Just ask Ferguson (the thief) and MAN'URE as i think that Shrek has been swayed by the £££££££££'s and will join them.

Rafa Benitez will try to poach Liverpool players in January Window

Liverpool should be worried as Rafa is sitting a bit of money and so far hasnt bought anyone in at Inter Milan. He tried to sign Dirk Kuyt and Javier Mascherano in the summer.

Torres
Gerrard
Kuyt
Reina

Thing about inter is technical director Marco Branca and president Massimo Moratti are friends with Roy Hodgson. Inter didn't sign a non-poaching agreement because Rafa was sacked in the summer. So he is free to come and get his players.

ED- YOU SAID:"He had the then best striker in the world in Eto'o as well and he failed to control them off the pitch. That is completely different to what you are trying to say"

How did Rjikaard fail to control players off the pitch?

The same way Rafa couldnt control Gerrard punching the head off a DJ in Southport? Yet he still turns in World class performances year in year out
The same way Redknapp has King injured half the season but then getting pissd every other weekend in the papers out clubbin with Lankyboy crouch- yet still he gets them to UCL from being bottom of league?
The same way Ancelotti and Mourinho couldnt stop Terry sleeping with his team mates wives and giving illegal tours around the stadium whilst his dad dealt cocaine and mum stole from shops - yet Ancelotti and Mourinho win everywhere they go?
The same way Fergie can't control what Rooney does in his private time - does that question ol purple nose's ability to manage?


COME ON ED - ADMIT IT, YOU ARE JUST MAKIN A BAD ASSUMPTION ABOUT RJIKAARD. PETER NUNN YNWA * * * * * {ed's note - how am I making a bad assumption about Rijkaard? He was sacked for allowing the players to get out of hand and their performances were suffering because of it. He then goes to Turkey and, despite having arguably the best squad in the league, he fails to win the league or even look like doing so. The football is great to watch and I really wouldn't be upset if he is named manager, but he is not my choice.}

Rooney has to wait until January to get a transfer.
I read on the Liverpool echo that this will leave him with only a year on his contract, which due to fifa rules he can buy out the last year of his contract. This will allow him to leave united for 5 or 6 million euro and not the massive fee united would expect to get. Does anyone think there is a possibility he could join Liverpool? snubbing both city and united. Think about it, no one expected Joe Cole to sign. He may jump at a chance to play along side Joe, Stevie G and Nando!

I think Roy will be gone when NESV finds a new manager for us. What does antone think? Ed? {ed's note - yes mate, I agree.}

Of course he'll be gone. Why would he stay once we have a new manager!?

Redfish {ed's note - good point mate, I never even thought of that! That made me laugh, I needed that after the weekend!}

That was the intention :) im glad it made it in as I was worried it would be deemed rather childish. I couldn't resist though and I think us fans should take the chance to laugh whenever we can. Unfortunately I don't see there being much to smile about for quite a while. I like most convince myself after every rubbish performance that iv had enough with the team and things need to change, etc, etc but as soon as the next game kicks off its all forgotten and im just supportin the boys on again. Who knows, we could win on thursday then spank blackburn and all of a sudden it'll be 'give hodgson a chance'. I doubt it though :)

If Torres goes in January, I think he will go for around £40m. Plus the money from the usual suspects and hopefully the NESV money, we could have around £100m to spend. This is who I would buy;

Dzeko- £30m
(Aguero- £25m) only if Torres leaves
Mata- £15m
Van der Wiel- £10m
Cahill- £15m


Team after January

Reina

Wiel Cahill Agger Aurelio

Johnson Meireles Mata

Gerrard

Dzeko Aguero/ Torres

Then next season;
Mexes- Free
Taiwo- Free
Honda- £12m

Rumours of Rooney even being linked to us our ridiculous. It's not the fact that we couldn't afford him because due to the Webster ruling he can buy himself out of his contract for £7m in January or £4.5m in the summer. However, a deal with Man City has already been agreed (transfer, wages).

Ed, in your opinion, who's the best centre back in the prem and why? If you could buy any centre back in the world, who would it be? {ed's note - I will answer the easy question first, I would sign Lucio, he is exactly what we need, pace, power and fantastic ability on the ball. The best centre back in the Prem is a toughie, I think I would probably say Chelsea's Alex. He is the best all-round centre back, he is strong, good in the air, quick and he is very decent on the ball, plus he offers a threat from free kicks and corners.}

I can't believe Rooney would go to man city, his life will become a living nightmare. Being in the same town as your old club, but the deal is done according to many.

Torres to man utd could be possible, but i think santa cruz, adebola, bellamy could make a switch the other way to man utd. Bara are saving money for Fabregas bid. Real want a Drogba type of pure power.

The only place i could see Torres going is Inter-milan. Benitez will try to sign him on the cheapo

Everyones worried that Torres is going to leave but in my eyes he's just frustrated. He's been promised that world class players will be brought in over the years and clearly that hasn't happend so who wouldn't be annoyed. Imagine you was one of the worlds best players but you was playing with a squad that couldn't give you the balls you should be expecting. He gets no chances a game, has to feed on scraps all the time, so can you blame him for been ticked off? I reckon in January if we can sign 2 or 3 top draw players he'll sort himself out and we'll see the Fernando Torres that we all fell in love with. What do you think ED? {ed's note - I am sorry but if any player thinks he has a right to dictate who a club buys, then he should be sold forthwith. His job is to perform to the best of his ability on the pitch, nothing more, nothing less, if he is not capable of doing that then bye. Players need to grow up a bit and take some responsibility for themselves.}

Ed? How can you expect someone especially a striker to perform to their best ability when they rely so much on other players setting them up and assisting them. I think this lads comments are spot on. {ed's note - I wasn't expecting him to perform to his best, I am expecting him to try harder than he is. I don't expect to see him facing Everton, who are holding a high line, with an opportunity to run in behind and just stand there pointing backwards. I really do understand why he is playing poorly, he didn't get a sniff that he didn't create for himself, but he needs to do more for the team.}

OK ed, thanks for clearing that up and i suppose i do agree with both points. What we need is a strike partner for him of the heskey mould, strong! Dzeko would be amazing but possibly a bit pricey. {ed's note - I agree, Llorente would be the one I would choose, he is available.}

It doesn't matter what manager comes in as no manager will give out to gerrard, carragher or torres for fear that they leave and if the leave the fans will turn on him. . for example if roy came in last summer and said to torres if you don't want to be here then leave and torres left would all the fans not blame hogson and want him sacked. . it would be the same for nearly every manager coming in now! !If torres left in the summer everyone would now be blaming hogson for letting him go!

I think Dalglish would get away with it if his team was attacking and winning. Afterall Dalglish IS the clubs blue eyed son

mostly agree, BUT!, most liverpool fans would like to see a new manager that comes in and makes the RIGHT changes to the squad. that would bring respect to the manager depending on the result. therefore if a manager does come in expect carra to be phased out sooner rather than later mate.

Does anyone seriously think ol whisky nose is gonna sell his prized assett to his sworn enemy? Doesn't anyone remember the trouble we had trying to sign heinze way back when? Fair enough it was benitez who was trying to sign him and the two don't get on but still. Its nit goin to change just because woy is in charge. He doesn't have the balls to even try. After seventy minutes in the derby he was askin sammy lee what to do. and he didn't even have anyone for two thirds of the game warming up. I know everyone slates rafa but when he was mamaging he made sure his subs were constantly getting warmed up. Just a few thoughts anyway.

I reckon in January if we can sign 2 or 3 top draw players he'll sort himself out and we'll see the Fernando Torres that we all fell in love with. What do you think ED? {ed's note - I am sorry but if any player thinks he has a right to dictate who a club buys, then he should be sold forthwith. His job is to perform to the best of his ability on the pitch, nothing more, nothing less, if he is not capable of doing that then bye. Players need to grow up a bit and take some responsibility for themselves.}

Ed? How can you expect someone especially a striker to perform to their best ability when they rely so much on other players setting them up and assisting them. I think this lads comments are spot on. {ed's note - I wasn't expecting him to perform to his best, I am expecting him to try harder than he is. I don't expect to see him facing Everton, who are holding a high line, with an opportunity to run in behind and just stand there pointing backwards. I really do understand why he is playing poorly, he didn't get a sniff that he didn't create for himself, but he needs to do more for the team.}

Ed do u think xabi alonso would come back? i know he never wanted to leave anfield {ed's note - he won't leave Real Madrid right now, he is first choice in a team that has every chance of winning the league. Maybe in the future things might change, but right now I would suggest Banega, similar player but definitely available as Valencia are still in money trouble.}

Ed I do not know if I agree with your opinion that we should sign a long term manager. I feel that our long term manager is carra. Yes we need to get someone in who can turn things around and have a succesful 5-10 years. But not necessarily a young manager just starting their career. Could Roy last 7 seven years? No and if his current results he will not make it to November in charge. Could Dalglish? Maybe. I think even though he signed a new contract Carra will retire at the end of this year and spend a the next 5-10 years in coaching and managing at lower levels. But it is obvious that he will make a great manager because he has the passion and is an absolute student and lover of the game. {ed's note - I am not entirely convinced on that, I would rather we got back to the old boot room days and Carra spent a lot longer coming up through the coaching ranks before he takes charge.}

How about Holloway (if we get rid of Roy - which I think would be harsh). You can't fault him for what he is doing with Blackpool and he certainly endeared himself to LFC with his comments after their win over us. He seems ever so slightly crackers as well - you've got to admire that in a person.

1-Manuel pelligrini
2-michael laudrup
3-Marcelo bielsa
All 3 play exciting free flowing football just what we need at Liverpool right now . Any thoughts on my choices Ed
NGS77 {ed's note - I had completely forgotten about Bielsa, I would enjoy watching any of those manage the team. I wouldn't say no to Roy Evans coming back for that matter.}

IN RESPONSE TO:

{ed's note - I have said I like RIjkaard's style of football, but the problem is that he lets the players have too much power. When we have Gerrard and Carragher with far too much of it already that is not the manager we need in my opinion. I really don't see the relevance of comparing Rijkaard and Hodgson, I have never expressed a preference for Hodgson, I always wanted a younger man to come in.}


You were sayin the other day tht Rjikaard had it easy at Barca and he made Ronaldinho become a fat slow player. Rjikaard got Bojan, Dos Santos as well as Messi on the scene. Im sure that wasnt letting the players have "too much power"

You just want to sit on the fence defending Roy. Rewind 3 weeks ago and you were protecting Hodgson.

Any manager that plays Blackpool at home, Northampton at home, Sunderland at home, Birmingham away and Everton away and Utrecht away and can't get a single win deserves the sack!

He is a yes man- from the minute he joined sayin " I let mr purswow deal with the twansfers, Im ere to coach the team" and calls Ol purple nose
"SIR" Doesnt deserve our fan backing "the liverpool way"

You make a fair point that players shouldnt have too much power- - but don't you think its our shi* Y board and owners with too much power who have ruined us? ?


PETER NUNN YNWA * * * * * {ed's note - Rijkaard did have it easy at Barca, he had the then best player in the world Ronaldinho and the best youngster in the world in Messi. He had the then best striker in the world in Eto'o as well and he failed to control them off the pitch. That is completely different to what you are trying to say. Are you just being deliberately obtuse? Because there is no point me answering if you are. Simply put Roy was never given a chance, he came in as a stop gap and deserved a bit of backing from the crowd for putting his head on the block like he did. Instead he got nothing from the crowd but the chants of Dalglish the moment it didn't go well, which was always going to happen without the backing of the crowd and the board. It is people getting on Roy's back that has left his position untenable, he has no hope when the crowd is taking the player's sides, even though they are the ones letting all of us down on the pitch. As such I believe there is no hope for the man, he is not nasty enough to do what is needed and he doesn't have enough power to do so anyway. Though I would sack him for his comments after the Derby anyway, for any manager of Liverpool to talk about a point anywhere in the league as a good result is bad enough, but to say it about Everton is a disgrace and a sackable offence in my opinion.}

Rijkaard to leave galatasaray by the end of the week and replace hodgson on monday. yes he will bring arda turan with him in january, and also ever banega of valencia will be his 2 main priorities from money given from the owners, any other signings will be dependant on sales. no defenders will be signed, if enough money can be raised then alexis sanchez and keisuke honda will be brought, no more players will be signed in jan. his 4 3 3 formation he used at barca will be emulated with banega holding, cole and gerrard will be the play makers in the middle of the park. with turan and sanchez changing wings throughout games. honda and mereiles will be the 2 game changing subs and a new lease of confindence given to ryan babel, aquilani WILL be called back at the end of the season as to go out and buy a creative midfielder is seen as pointless when we already have one. with the attacking players in place by the summer the defence will then be addressed, expect left back to be sorted firsti like the sound of that, but can't see it

From O'Neill's wiki page (bearing in mind he is the bookies favourite to replace Woy)


O'Neill left Leicester on 1 June 2000, taking over from the team of John Barnes and Kenny Dalglish to become manager of Celtic. O'Neill's first Old Firm game ended in a 6-2 victory for Celtic over Rangers. However, the following Old Firm game at Ibrox saw Celtic fall 5-1. In that first season O'Neill's Celtic won the domestic treble, the first time the club had done so since 1969. He was the first Celtic manager to take the team into the revamped Champions League (a feat he managed three times). He guided Celtic to the 2003 UEFA Cup Final in Seville, which Celtic lost 3-2 in extra time, to a Porto side coached by José Mourinho. In his five seasons at Celtic Park, O'Neill won three League titles, three Scottish Cups, and a League Cup. He also oversaw a record 7 consecutive victories in Old Firm derbies, and in season 2003-04 Celtic created a British record of 25 consecutive victories.[citation needed] During this time, O'Neill's name was linked with a number of high-profile jobs in England.[citation needed]

On 25 May 2005, Celtic announced that O'Neill was resigning as manager at the end of the 2004/ 05 season to care for his wife Geraldine, who had lymphoma.

O'Neill's last competitive game in charge of Celtic was the Scottish Cup final 1-0 victory over Dundee United on 28 May 2005, decided by an eleventh minute goal by Alan Thompson. Celtic's record under O'Neill, was winning 213, drawing 29 and losing 40, of 282 games played

BREAKING NEWS: New Liverpool manager is john toshack

()()

 

 

 

19 Oct 2010 21:53:37
If Roy was to be sacked , these would most probably be the most likely candiates :

Manuel Pelligrini ( My choice)
Frank Rijkaard
Kenny Dalglish
Bob Bradley (American, my only thinking behind it)
Marcello Lippi
Thommo

I really can't think of any other managers that would be the slighest bit interested in the job, with a good CV , and that the owners think they may have a chance of luring. But if you believe internet reports, it seems that it is likely to be Rijkaard which i won't be too disappointed about too be fair.

Liverpool are in rebuilding process.This means, financial situation of the club is still in process then when the paperwork is complete then Chairman, Director, board will be reviewed. The the coach/ team manager will be assessed before the players situation will be looked at. I believe Purslow will stay, Broughton on wants to continue at Liverpool as he has enjoyed the fame that comes with the job. Hodgson I feel will be moved on and the players, expect a clear out . Dalglish is very pally with certain NESV members and has impressed them with " what he'd do" if in charge of the team, also the kop chants his name. My money is on Dalglish to takeover within a couple of weeks and a new manager to come this summer (unless Dalglish gets a champions league spot). Torres looks set to leave this summer if there is no champions league plus theres a clear out and a massive transfer budget

We've been rebuilding for 20 years and the bottom blocks are only in. How much longer do we have to wait?

Edin Dzeko is the answer! Torres needs a big, powerful target man who can hold the ball up for him - Dzeko is 6 4" and a f* *ing tank! He also scores bags of goals - he's scored more than any other player in Wolfsburg's history, and he's their captain - and he's only 24! There is still time for him to improve and develop! He's also proven as a strike partner, as he plays extremely well with Grafite, who is a similar player to Torres in many ways. Dzeko is also consistent - he's scored consistently in every season he's played in the Bundesliga, and also performs for his country as well. Plus he's a UNICEF ambassador! NESV should make a big statement of intent and sign this man in January! Press Believable if you agree.

Hodgson lost torres' respect when he failed to back him in the wake of his buddy fergie criticising him Any manager with an ounce of man management would have lept to his best players defence. Hodgson is just a yes man, out to look good among his fellow managers, as none of them have a bad word to say about him. And why's that, because he is not a winner, everyone like him because no one fears him. How long did i take for Wenger to get under fergusons skin, same as rafa, when they started to compete and beat utd.

It doesn't matter what manager comes in as no manager will give out to gerrard, carragher or torres for fear that they leave and if the leave the fans will turn on him. . for example if roy came in last summer and said to torres if you don't want to be here then leave and torres left would all the fans not blame hogson and want him sacked. . it would be the same for nearly every manager coming in now! !If torres left in the summer everyone would now be blaming hogson for letting him go!

I do not want us to buy Rooney but if Real Madrid bought him in January then we could probably buy one of Higuain, Benzema, or Negredo(they would not use their buy-back clause). These would all make great partners for Torres but obviously no longer be first choice at the bernabeu.

Imagine you was one of the worlds best players but you was playing with a squad that couldn't give you the balls you should be expecting.

Well, Lippi would certainly tear those brats a new one if he was to come in. Van Gaal as well. Bilic would also demand instant respect I reckon, more down to his personality and intelligence. But so would Pellegrini, who did well at Real where Raul used to be king.

ED MATE- WHATS YOUR OBJECTION TO RJIKAARD?

Are you worried he might spit on Fergies combover rather than shake his hand at Anfield this year?

Rjikaard plays attacking football and the only way to get results & confidence outta our team is to adopt attacking mentality.

Not by playing Lucas and Poulsen yet leaving wide pacemen on the bench. Not by letting the premier league know that your only plan B is a very average kid called Ngog!
Not by playing Kyrgiakos, Carra, Skrtel and Konchesky as a back 4!

Rjikaard deserves a chance - and the main reason is he could attract and convince better players to arrive. You think any Top pedigree player in europe gets excited about working with Woy Hodgson? ?

What Rjikaard got out of Ronaldinho was immense and what he also gave the world in letting us witness the beauty that is the ball at Lionel Messis feet deserves applause.
Yet Hodgson doesn't even let Shelvey on the bench?

You could imagine Rjikaard gettin the best out of Babel, making Torres Meireles Gerrard tick, and poss even getting Aqua back and making a player out of him! Hodgson just wants to keep trying proven failures, Poulsen , Lucas and Konchesky! !

You think the players see Hodgson with a whistle to his mouth and a cup of Harrods tea from Al Fayed and feel inspired during training?


BELIEV. FOR HAPPY TO SEE RJIKAARD

UNBELIEV. FOR HAPPY TO STICK WITH WOY


PETE NUNN YNWA * * * * * {ed's note - I have said I like RIjkaard's style of football, but the problem is that he lets the players have too much power.

{ed's note - he has a better record than Shankly had before he took over. All these big name managers you all want have no knowledge of the kind of football played on these shores. Rafa and Houllier have shown how difficult it can be. If you are chuckling at O'Driscoll, then it is purely because of who he manages and not on his ability at all and to dismiss a manager purely because of that is not a clever thing to do.}

I laughed because he coudnt even get the Burnley job let alone ours, nothing to do with who he manages. Yes he is a talented manager do you really think he could deal with the pressure of turning our season around. Lets see our 'stars' take orders from him, and yes i am aware that that is a major part of our problem. But maybe your right, maybe that's what we need, a fresh approach. However i feel we need stability 1st, so that's why i recommended Antic, what with his stabilising record. {ed's note - I understand your choice, but we have already gone for the stabilising option in Hodgson and the players are just not responding because they know a stabilising option is always short term.}

Stephane Courbis - Adebayor's agent claims Liverpool may get the striker in January transfer.
Adebayor claims Liverpool would be his prefered destination should he move clubs and stay in England.
This all depends on money for both club and player but Adebayor could well be a Liverpool player come January

Can't see Roy being sacked as the new owners have already stated that they will support him, but we do need a manager who thinks positive, acts positive and inspires his players. For these reasons alone I don't think Roy is the right man. Who is though, Klinsmann, Bilic, Moyes even? What do you think ed? Also, where did the rumour about a bust up between Gerrard, Carra and Torres come from, cos I can't seem to find anything relating to it. {ed's note - Moyes? Are you mad? This is the guy who has been booed on numerous occasions for setting out his teams too defensively by Everton fans. No thank you. He may well be working wonders there but he is not the right man for Liverpool, he wouldn't know flowing football if it was handed to him on a plate.}

Managers i feel should be considered, Rijkaard, Antic, Slaven Bilic.

My favourite would be Antic, Known for his ability to turn the fortunes around of big clubs in precarious positions, ie Barca and Real, Then Rijkaard cause of his winning with Barca, but more so his style of football. Bilic seems to have a great relationship with all his players.

But whoever it be, they need to have the respect of the players, unlike Roy, who doesn't stand up for his players when his buddy Fergie criticises them

ed Sean O'Driscoll? that gave me a right good chuckle i must say. {ed's note - he has a better record than Shankly had before he took over. All these big name managers you all want have no knowledge of the kind of football played on these shores. Rafa and Houllier have shown how difficult it can be. If you are chuckling at O'Driscoll, then it is purely because of who he manages and not on his ability at all and to dismiss a manager purely because of that is not a clever thing to do.}

According to sources close to Frank Rijkaard, Liverpool FC have made contact with his representatives in regards to a possible managerial roll at anfield.

Liverpool will give current manager Roy Hodgson two more games before they make an approach. They will wait until Napoli and Blackburn (Thursday, Sunday) and if Roy Hodgson fails to take maximum points from both games they will officially approach the ex-Barcelona manager Sunday evening.

Rijkaard who currently managers Galatasaray is day's away from leaving his post and has made it very clear he would accept the Liverpool job.

Rijkaard to leave galatasaray by the end of the week and replace hodgson on monday. yes he will bring arda turan with him in january, and also ever banega of valencia will be his 2 main priorities from money given from the owners, any other signings will be dependant on sales. no defenders will be signed, if enough money can be raised then alexis sanchez and keisuke honda will be brought, no more players will be signed in jan. his 4 3 3 formation he used at barca will be emulated with banega holding, cole and gerrard will be the play makers in the middle of the park. with turan and sanchez changing wings throughout games. honda and mereiles will be the 2 game changing subs and a new lease of confindence given to ryan babel, aquilani WILL be called back at the end of the season as to go out and buy a creative midfielder is seen as pointless when we already have one. with the attacking players in place by the summer the defence will then be addressed, expect left back to be sorted first.

Ok, I've posted on here only once, but this site is awesome, very impressive eds. Just started a new job on a building site as an electrician in chester and I got talking to my supervisor about football, the derby because he's a blue and he told me another one of the lads from the site he was looking after up the road as well is one of rooneys good friends and drinks with him all the time. apparently he's in one of the pictures in the sun from a few weeks back with wayne. ANYWAY he told ne rooney wanted out in the summer and said that he would love to go back to everton but its just the fact moyes is there. Its no secret they hate each other. Not the most relevant of posts but just thought I'd share. Also, my brother in law treats agger for his back injury in the royal, and after he had his surgey, agger came out and said he can't feel the pain anymore. The surgery consisting of two injections into the spine, the first is a fast acting pain killer, (takes about 2 weeks to kick in) the second works over the coures of a few months. Well, since he said he can't feel anything straight away, this apparently is a bad sign, meaning it wasn't a success. Conclusion. He's goin to have a lot more problems and be out a lot more this season. Sorry boys. P.S. He also , so I'm told have the most amazing viking landing tattoo scene on his back, with sometging in the region of 50 characters.took him 6 painful months.

Rooney to Liverpool! Wants to stay in uk to be with his familly and his home city is ideal!"

Oh come on, think about this!

Rooney has said before he hates Liverpool and would never play for us, and do you really think in a million years that if he was going to leave Ferguson would leave it until he can buy out his contract and go for 5m. He isn't going to sign for us, he will go to someone that will help the Glazers pay of some of that interest but don't worry mate, i'll get you some nice crayons to play with.

Whilst I know that Rijkaard would play expansive, attractive football (which we are greatly lacking at the moment), I've got two issues: -

1) Barcelona didn't ship many goals in because no-one could get the ball off Xavi and Iniesta. . .so the defence were protected somewhat.

2) He is no manager of people. Ronaldinho turned into partyboy and Etoo ran amock (and was ultimately shipped out to Inter).

Given that Gerrard and Carragher are having way too much influence in the dressing room as it is. . .do we really want Rijkaard who won't stand up to them? Surely this is half of Roy's issues now. . that the senior players don't respect him. Sure, they may like the creative freedom and licence to do what the heck they like, but I feel they need pegging down a bit.

Who are the new owners going to listen to most (if they do decide Roy has to go)? Not necessarily the board as some of them will most likely be leaving after a transitional period. Perhaps King Kenny will have a lot of sway in influencing them, as the NESV chap who supports LFC will obviously idolise him. Who would Kenny recommend (other than himself?). The most successful Liverpool managers have mostly been short of experience/ exposure at management level. I get the feeling they might go for a strong holding position with an experienced manager whilst they groom Carragher for the years to come. He's got some of his coaching badges already (I think). One interesting idea. . Owen Coyle. Played lovely football with Burnley (over achieved) and is turning Bolton into a top half of the table team that play with the ball on the deck (which is why Wenger let Wiltshere go there last season).

Even if this were true we couldn't afford him! Not without sellin torres and id rather hav torres! Even if we did lose torres and get rooney, we'd still be in the same position as we are now. . in desperate need of a striker. Im not gonna deny that the thought of gettin rooney and keeping torres is mouth watering but i'd say the likelihood of that happening is somewhere between a million years and never!

I read somewhere that there could be a loop hole in his contract that would allow him to leave the mancs for 5mil but his wages would cripple us

. . Ed. .I'm not rubbishing peoples opinions but to dissmiss Frank Rijkaards ability as a manager and prospect of managing us is ridiculous! I don't care what his record in Turkey is. . He managed Barca and and was VERY successful there playing beautiful football! . .He is also used to handeling quality players and knows what sort of football he wants. And whether or not Barca's chairman picked what players were bought, I'd be confident he'd buy the right players for us purely based on the fact that as a player and manager he's only really ever been around quality! . .Can you really picture him buying a Konchesky or a Lucas?!. .I cant. .And for all those saying Gus Hiddink. .Yeah he's a good coach. .But i can't really remember when he was last at a club for 5 years or more, and can't picture him doing that now. .

I think Roy "I don't know what I am Doing" Hodgson has made a mistake in Letting him go as he had started to do well at the back end of last season.

And what on earth is Happening with Babel and Jovanovic I for one think that Bringing someone on in the 80th Minute is not good Enough Babel As inconsistent as he is Brings Some excitement sometimes and at the Moment we don't look like scoring and look really Boring

Wish We could Go back to the Days Of 4-1's Against the likes of Real Madrid and Manchester United. {ed's note - yes Aqualani could be brought back at the end of his loan period, if they don't want to sign him. But I believe the contract is for a permanent move if they want him.}

Good news for Liverpool so as he wouldn't cost millions in compensation. He's a good manager who developed a brilliant Barca team around Ronaldinho with talented youth (which Liverpool have) and by buying good players. I reckon he should be given a shot at the job. I'd trust him with a good transfer budget to get the right players.

Before slating Rijkaard based on his failure in Turkey, it's worth noting that Guus Hiddink failed at Fenerbahce (sacked after a year) , Loachim Loew failed twice in Turkey, Vicente del Bosque failed at Besiktas, Luis Aragones failed at Fenerbahce. Success in Turkey is not always the best way to judge a manager's career. After all Graeme Souness had a pretty successful season at Galatasaray. No-one is calling for his return.
- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -
Let's face it Turkey is renowned for the owners of the clubs being meglomaniacs who sack managers in a whim. There is also way too much player power also.
It is now being reported in Holland of the interest from Liverpool in Rikjjard. Hopefully if he comes to Liverpool we might get the best attacking free flowing football since the Roy Evans era.

If you are reading this Mr. Henry - then Slaven Bilic or Joachim Loew - next LFC manager please. They both have the winning mentality and ability to put LFC back on top.

Liverpool are playing soo bad that teams in the championship are taking the piss! Something has to change, otherwise relegation is on the cards.
We need to play attacking football, play another striker with torres so he can get support and more confidence, try jovanovic there or babel. We need pace on the wings put johnson on the right and cole on the left. In the middle we can have gerrard and raul. This will give us attacking flare, quality supply into the box with johnson and cole, and hopefully more goals.
I think if roy can't do this, then his time is up, and i would love to see the germany coach at anfield. He gets his players playing slick confident football, and can get the best out of them. If not then Hiddink. What a great job he did at chelsea, and with him at liverpool, it will be no nonsense football!
Also heard a few interesting rumours regarding transfers. The owners don't want expensive players, they want players who are affordable and think about the team first. Also they don't want a huge wage bill. So forget about all this big names coming to anfield because it's not going to happen! Rossi of Villarreal is being looked at and also Andy Carroll of newcastle. I know most of you must be thinking Andy carroll, why him, so was i, but he is english, good in the air and confident. Liverpool are also looking at SWP of Man City and David Bentley of Spurs to provide some more support for the wings. Again both english and confident players who like to get forward. For the central midfield, recalling Aquilani will be the best bet. Playing with confidence for Juventus and controlling there midfield with some slick football. Exactly what liverpool need right now! ! {ed's note - Andy Carroll? The crap lump that plays for Newcastle and is only bailed to live with Newcastle captain Kevin Nolan and could not possibly move even if he was good enough to be wanted by us?}

We bought Johnson for 18 mil so why would we sell all those players for 20 mil.

I think i might have shot anybody that suggested this last year but just maybe we need to stop playing as the steven gerrard and fernando torres team everthing we do is to suit them .
if we sold them both we will probably get 80 million think of what we can get to replace them

Jan transfers rooney to man city £50-60m, torres to manure £40-50m, dzecko and forlan to lfc £30m and £12m, good deal for us i think.

The only way Torres would be going to Man'ure would be if Rooney was going to Liverpool and this will never happen. . Wake up !

Roy fails to get a win vs Blackburn , then Kenny Dalglish will take over until the summer, if he does well the job is his and Ian Rush and Phil Thompson will assist.

Rush was a massive success at Chester City. . .

Or

hodgson will be sacked if they do not beat blackburn, the owners made it clear in todays meeting that the next few games are must wins or its adios Roy. However They will not appoint dalglish.

The only manager we should even be considering is Guus Hiddink. Most of these players need a kick up the ass and remember who they are playing for. I don't think Roy has it in him to wield the axe

In response

Ok, managing a international team is alot differentthan club management. He doesn't have to purchase players and most of the time he is having dinner + wotching games with his buddies. he can organise world class talent to play defensive football. Erikson can do the same provs nothing about his abilty to change at club level

Youre not on about sven erikson are you? ??
i seem to remember lazio being a great team under erikson, i for one would have jumped at the chance to have him as our manager

We are being linked with Kerzhakov and the price being quoted is reasonable at about £6m. I think this guy is definitely worth a punt. Otherwise if Luis Fabiano is unhappy at Sevilla why not try for him.

As far as a new manager I wuld not go for someone like Rijkaard because he is not much better pedigree than what we have at the moment.

Guss Hiddink would be my first choice, then Joachim Loew. Otherwise give it to Kenny and see if he can get the best out of our players.

P.S. I agree that Hodgson is failing because he is trying to carry on with Rafa's formations and tactics. Get a couple of wingers out there and lets start attacking.

All good dreaming of these so called world class players coming to Liverpool. But reality is, if our performance doesn't improve with the current sh*t squad, no one will want to join us, especially if there is no possibility of champions league football next season.

the man who said this why not put your name to it?? ?? ? ?

man u to take best stricker in world from liverpool? remember the sale ov man u left back hienza and fergie wouldn't sell to liverpool. he would be laughing his head off at us if he would get torres from us. torres is having a bad time. understanable he gets battered in every game when he is a threat and refs do nothin for him. he is going through a time most players do. he back from getting injured and got no confidence fear ov getting injured again. . we need a good manager to take the helm, woy simply isn't good enough for lfc, ppl saying cos he was voted manger of the year and wot he done for fulham last season he deserves the job at liverpool, he didn't win a game away from fulham apart from one all season and seems like he bringing that to liverpool aswell is that good enough for liverpool fc. am sorry nice man but not strong enough for LIVERPOOL FOOTBALL CLUB.

Rikjaard seems to be on the verge of being sacked by Galatasatary. If he was sacked and Liverpool did want him that would mean no compensation to Gala, I'm not a major follower of Turkish football so don't know how they've been playing - but he has a few ex-Liverpool players there in Baros and Kewell. Just a quick Q - are all our loaned out players there for 12 months and can they be recalled in winter transfer window? As Aquilani is looking more and more like the player we were all expecting (scored a lovely goal at the weekend, and generally dominated the midfield), and Insua can be no worse than Konchesky.

Ed, at the Blackburn V Sunderland match i noticed a number of managers together watchin the game, Alex Ferguson & David Moyes were there and beside them Kenny Daglish! I thought this was a bit strange, shouldn't Roy have been attending this match to watch Blackburn seen as though we're playing them this weekend? Maybe Roy won't be in charge this weekend, it'd be ironic if Kenny was back in charge this weekend against Blackburn, not looking too good for Roy IMO. . Do u think Roy could be gone this soon? {ed's note - it is possible, though Kenny was always going to the match anyway. I would think it more likely the new owners will wait until they have a replacement lined up before they swing the axe though.}

To the big Rijkaard fan:

Hodgson is the very definition of 'seen it all before'

Hodgson was a moderately successful player with Crystal Palace before spending several seasons in non-league football. I heard he said his aim was to become a football manager, not a player.

"Hodgson has had success at both international and club level - with a CV boasting 13 trophies (including four top-league championships in Sweden and one in Denmark). Hodgson guided the Swiss national team to the last 16 of the 1994 World Cup and qualification for Euro 1996; Switzerland had not qualified for a major tournament since the 1960s. From 2006 to 2007, he managed the Finland national team, where he guided Finland to its highest ever FIFA ranking of 33rd place."

People always say He was flop at Blackburn but we forget that he guided them to a UEFA Cup spot.

Do I have to mention what he did with Fulham?
(Also he was voted LMA Manager of the Year 2010)

If you don't agree that He is not one of the best English managers- then you just don't understand Football.


[PS: Roy's tactics is changing formation to suit his players. So far in Liverpool I havent seen him doing that. He's carrying on with Rafa's. That's what letting him down. I hope he understands this problem and solves it as soon as possible.]

[PPS: He's not going anywhere]

how he wants to organise the team for the better but he just hasn't got the ball's of steel to open his mouth and criticise or drop our under performing bigger named players and use our hungry youngsters. . . open your mouth roy before its too late!

RE:Rijkaard's a Turkish-reject and we're seeing him as the one who can turn things around in Liverpool?

Frank rijkarrd was a great player. he played for Ajax, Sporting, Real Zaragoza, Milan. i like the fact he was schooled at Ajax. This is just the kind of person we need. somone who will understand how to build the youth set up and style of play here at liverpool

He has had success with the national side. Learnt alot at Sparta Rotterdam. did really well as Barcelona manager (2003-2008) he bought Deco, Samuel Eto'o, Rafael Márquez, Ludovic Giuly. Got players like Víctor Valdés, Carles Puyol, Xavi, Andrés Iniesta, messi out of reserves and playing for first team.

If he does something close to the job he has done with bara, i will be happy. I understand he is a cheque book manager and that could be the reason for his problems at the moment in turkey, but the best players in the world get you the best results.
