    Brendan Rodgers..yay or nay?

    I know, I purely just stated that should Puel be sacked I would have him here IMO.

    Same as Ranieri then. He had one season where he did well. So is Ranieri a good manager, or a bad manager? I haven't suggested he is the catalyst for why Liverpool are doing well atm. Yet his 2nd place finish put them back in the limelight again. He deserves some credit for that, instead of suggesting it was soley down to one player.

    Sorry where have I not given Puel credit? I'm not even Puel Out.. I'm on the fence!! I think Puel has done some good things here, which is probably why he is still in the job. However we haven't progressed enough and that is what will probably cost him. I've tried to remain Puel In because I can see what he is trying to do, however I can also see the negatives too which is holding us back too.

    I'm not even sticking up for Puel, but it's true. We are going to struggle to bring players in until we can get rid of most of our fringe players.

    I haven't said Rogers is better than Klopp. Just he has finished higher than Klopp has so far. Did Rogers have the spending power that Klopp has now? I guess everything he did was crap. Must be the luckiest manager out there then...

    So is Pep only successful because of the World Class players? Is Klopp only doing great now because he has Salah? Van Dyik? Alisson? All good manager's need good players. Do you forget he also got a young Raheem Sterling to play out of his skin too. Guess that was JUST down to Suarez?

    Liverpool finished 2nd in Rogers 2nd season. Liverpool under Klopp have not finished higher than 4th. Prior to Rogers they finished 7th, 6th and 8th. All managers have to undo someone's mess. Otherwise that manager would still be there. Puel is still trying to undo Ranieri and Shakespeare's mess, does that give more time and respect. Is Ranieri a failure because he got sacked at Leicester? All of it is subjective and you can spin it any way to suit your point. Whatever you wish to say, Rogers has still finished higher than Klopp in the league. A high number of managers get sacked, even the best ones. Does it mean that they are bad managers? No. We are Leicester City, and his management philosophy fits what we are trying to do. He isn't perfect, if he was we would have no chance anyway.

    Personally I don't get why there are so many people against this. He has done well at his last 3 jobs. He built the platform for Liverpool to be where they are now. Klopp has taken it to the next level however. Had it not been the Gerrard slip, he would be the first Liverpool manager to win the Premier League. At Swansea he had the playing some beautiful football, got them promoted to the Premier League for the first ever time. The club under him had an identity. At Celtic he has won pretty much everything he could. Yes the league is crap, but it still takes good management to get the best out of your players week in, week out to remain unbeaten for 63 games. He plays an attacking style, and good with young players. Something the club is striving for. Yet, some people still want Benitez, who is more defensive than Puel and isn't known for using young players regularly. If Puel goes, it would be a yes from me.

    Barnes coming back

    I don't think Puel would want him back at the club if he thought he wasn't ready. He will get game time. It then depends if he takes his chance or not. I have a feeling Gray will struggle for game time for the remainder of the season.

    Kelechi Iheanacho / Nacho Man

    Based on our alternatives, I'd say yes. At least he is a different type to bring on.

    Kelechi Iheanacho / Nacho Man

    Anyone want Slimani back?

    Mohamed Elneny

    From what I have seen he is more creative than Mendy and Ndidi whilst still being capable defensively. I think he could be an upgrade on what we have in terms of creative defensive midfielder. Hard to judge him from his time at Arsenal.

    Another good performance by Hamza. Just makes you wonder why it took so long for him to be given an opportunity this season. Got to be in the team now when he's fit for me. Apologies if there's already a Hamza thread, I couldn't find one.

    For the record, thats not me saying that. But people were hoping he would be his replacement. Obviously there are similarities, he's Algerian, left footed and plays in the same position, but that's about it. Too many fans are expecting too much.

    He's not Mahrez. That's the problem.
