Downturn in form since Rodgers link with Arsenal?

Recommended Posts

I was speaking to someone after the game walking out the ground, many grumbles understandably after watching that and he came up with something that I thought I might post on here as I found it an interesting thought. 
 

He reckons that the downturn in our form could be down to the Rodgers links he had with Arsenal as it coincides with us being miles off our best from Everton(when he was linked) to today. Said the players might have lost trust/ the edge that they had before that because he didn’t really put the matter to bed and strung it out?

I think we can analyse it to death. I think (or at least hope!) its a young group of players, a lot of whom are having troughs in form, who’ve had their confidence knocked and look tired. Certainly the toughest test Brendan has had so far

If it’s true that training is so intensive, then I just think the players are knackered, we’ve been poor for quite a while, so many players having off days, we're starting to get out pressed now, that’s how bad things have got.

I’m not saying that there is any media links or anything like that, he just stated how much of a coincidence it is. Thought it was worth seeing what everyone thought.

Saw a lot of togetherness in the Everton game though and the way we celebrated the winner.

 

Personally seen a dip from the Norwich draw. We had won 9 on the bounce and being tipped as title contenders. I think that unexpected halt to momentum has rocked our performances. Haven't played well at home since.

 

Although we've still played better away from home, which Rodgers' links can't explain.

Before Man City and Liverpool redefined the league, having blips was the norm. Even marvellous title winning Man Utd teams u def Ferguson would have rough patches and defeats.

 

The art is bouncing back and taking defeat out on the next opponents

I never understand this kind of speculation.

 

So many comments saying things like "Maddison and Chilwell have had their head turned by transfers, that's why they're playing badly". It's odd that people genuinely believe that, rather than the much simpler explanation that players go through bad runs of form.

Whilst i'm criticising with one hand and giving little credit with the other when I say we have looked good on only 3 occasions (Villa, West Ham and Newcaslte) out of the last 12 games and that I think it says more about the opposition on those occasions we've simply not been good enough.

 

I think you're way off the mark with this suggested theory but I feel something's changed or gone wrong within the camp since that Everton league game.

It's since the general election we've been poor so I'm convinced that it down to Boris Johnson

No can't see this being a factor. There have been more obvious reasons such as losing Ndidi for the last 2 games. Also don't forget the results have not all been disastrous recently with 3 wins and a draw before today.
