Bye Bye Brendan?
What a difference a year makes in football and if you are Brendan Rodgers, the heights his side hit last season seem a far and distant memory in this moment of time.
Punters believe his next two games against Bournemouth and Arsenal could shape his destiny as Liverpool manager. Rodgers is 11/2 from 8/1 to get sacked before January 1st 2015.
After suffering a humiliating defeat at the hands of their fierce rivals Manchester United, Liverpool lie ten points behind LVG’s men and can be backed at 7/1 for a top four finish.
We have the reds at 9/4 to win a trophy this season and after drawing Besiktas in the Europa League, it certainly won’t be easy. Their best chance is in the Capital Cup but with an away tie against Championship leaders Bournemouth, we are not seeing many takers at the current odds of 7/2 to lift the trophy.
Some of the new signings have had dreadful starts to their careers on Merseyside and with the pressure mounting, they need to start performing to give their under fire boss a chance of keeping his job.
