Almost a month into Brendan Rodgers’ first month at the Anfield reins and all has gone quiet on Merseyside. Transfer conjecture, as expected, continues to swell as the Northern Irishman continues to keep his recruitment plans under wraps. Rodgers will be frustrated at losing out on Gylfi Sigurdsson as the Icelandic midfielder closes in on a move to North London, whilst reported target Fabio Borini opted to continue his career revitalisation in Italy. After watching their rivals spend big to bring in some of Europe’s top talents you’d have to forgive Reds fans for thinking they’re being left behind. Especially when they pick up the newspaper on a morning to see they’re being linked with Victor Moses. But if theres one thing we’ve all learned from Rodgers’ short career in the dugout is that he doesn’t require big name players to bring success to a club. His principles are built upon finding players capable of complying with his strategic, passing philosophy. Money was spent in abundance during Kop idol Kenny Dalglish’s second coming but it’s unlikely the same level of funds will be afforded to Rodgers as the new season draws ever closer.
This week on FFC where does Charlie Adam’s Anfield career go from here and which Uruguayan playmaker to the Reds face a battle to sign?

“We all look at how Swansea played last year – they were a breath of fresh air for the Premier League and I think that’s probably one of the reasons why Brendan Rodgers has got the job.
“He has a lot of experience coaching-wise – he’s worked with Jose Mourinho. So we’re all looking forward to it. Obviously we’re disappointed for Kenny [Dalglish] and the staff because I got on well with them but we have to move forward and get right behind the manager” Jamie Carragher says he is relishing playing under Brendan Rodgers
