Liverpool may have recorded a first win in six games, but that should not detract from the problems at Anfield. The Reds are a pale imitation of the side that enthralled and entertained last season, with bad signings, the sale of Suarez and questionable management having all contributed. So should Brendan Rodgers go? Maybe, and here are three reasons why…
With just one win in six games and four defeats, things really are looking bleak at Anfield. The Reds were a swashbuckling attacking force last term, yet things could not be much different this time around, with Brendan Rodgers’ side ponderous and toothless. The Northern Irishman is not entirely to blame, but maybe something new is needed to shake things up. After all, the Merseysiders do have some decent players.

Liverpool’s bench today really highlighted the failings of the summer’s transfer window. Rodgers had £87m worth of arrivals on the sidelines, with the likes of Lovren and Lallana’s struggles forcing him to look to the likes of Kolo Toure and Lucas.
£90 million bench for Liverpool today. £87m of that is players signed in summer. #LFC

£87M on the bench for Liverpool today. You’d think our XI is world class. #LFC

€87m worth of new “talent” on the bench when Reus & Vidal would’ve cost #lfc £75m at most. Just think about that…

A win may be vital, and three points are the maximum available over 90 minutes. But Liverpool should really be hammering sides of, no disrespect intended, Stoke’s level. Last season the Merseysiders were steamrolling opponents they were expected to beat, but this time around it takes a late Glen Johnson effort.
Can’t wait for my pretentious manager to say we showed character against Stoke. .#rodgersout

I’m still Rodgers out, this win was a one off.
