  1. Focus deserves to be on Rodgers after solid start

    Kristian Walsh

    Liverpool's fine start to the season, their best since 2008-09, has led to praise being flung in scattergun style. Praise is tossed towards goalkeeper Simon Mignolet, who, true to form, dives to his left and pushes it away; praise is given to Mart...

  2. Rodgers-Suarez spat a tempest in a teacup

    Kristian Walsh

    On the afternoon before the snow started to free-fall upon Liverpool, Brendan Rodgers fashioned a storm of his own at Anfield Thursday. The tempest surrounding Luis Suarez and his glorious imperfections had all but ceased - yet here came the Northern...

  3. Rodgers dealt midfield lesson in Villa draw

    Kristian Walsh

    If Brendan Rodgers is still learning while sitting in the Liverpool dugout, then consider this one of his harshest yet. If Liverpool are to be successful this season, Lucas Leiva or Joe Allen must play. This 2-2 result and performance triggered re...

  4. In praise of Brendan Rodgers

    Kristian Walsh

    Brendan Rodgers has a lot to be thankful for this Christmas. His Liverpool side are second, he manages one of the world's absolute best in Luis Suarez and he even had the honour of hearing his name sung -- loudly, with actual meaning -- around White ...

  5. Rodgers finding the formula of Liverpool's comeback success

    Kristian Walsh

    In his news conference before Liverpool's meeting with Fulham, Brendan Rodgers brought out the abacus. Despite a 2-0 defeat to Arsenal the previous week, he remained unperturbed, comforted by simple mathematics. "If you look at where we're at, if you...

  6. Allen could be Liverpool's key to unlocking defences

    Kristian Walsh

    Brendan Rodgers' first league game at Liverpool resulted in three goals conceded, two penalties given away, one red card and no points. The reflections and remonstrations began over their worst opening day defeat in 75 years; such was the apoplexy at...

  7. Question of progress falls upon Rodgers

    Kristian Walsh

    In a circular season -- circular arguments, circular results, circular arguments -- it would always finish how it began. Television cameras followed Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers on his first day as Liverpool manager as part of a documentary seri...

  8. Manager merry-go-round increases expectation for Liverpool

    Kristian Walsh

    Brendan Rodgers is still learning. That, an admission from the Liverpool manager himself this week, is confirmation of something evident to all in the early days of his Anfield career. Whether he truly has learnt over the past nine months, and what h...

  9. Great Dane casts shadow over Rodgers

    Kristian Walsh

    When Brendan Rodgers sits in the dugout and scribbles on his notepad, try to cast a glance over his shoulder. He would be forgiven for simply drawing horns on a photograph of Michael Laudrup. Liverpool have faced a number of issues so far this se...

  10. Rodgers strikes solution at second-half attempt

    Kristian Walsh

    When Brendan Rodgers sits down and reflects on Liverpool's narrow defeat to Manchester United, he will do so with a semblance of regret, his wistful thoughts bringing a sickly rancour to his post-watershed drink. No matter how many times he reviews t...

  11. Festive feel-good factor hits Anfield

    Kristian Walsh

    "So here he is, Brendan Rodgers, everybody's having fun - here's to the future now, it's only just begun," came the feel-good festive singsong for Liverpool's manager. It was not sung with a shred of seriousness, nor was it belted out by more than a ...

  12. Zenit draw tough, but not impossible for Liverpool

    Kristian Walsh

    "A nice match," said Patrick Kluivert as he confirmed Liverpool's last 32 fixture against Russian side Zenit St. Petersburg. It is doubtful Brendan Rodgers will agree. Unlike fellow Russians Anzhi Makhachkala - who Liverpool faced in the group stages...

  13. Loose lips sink unreasonable expectations

    Kristian Walsh

    Loose lips sink ships, so the war propaganda said. Though the vessels on the River Mersey still stand tall, Brendan Rodgers' words this week have tightened his collar slightly, unnecessarily. His claim Liverpool are aiming for the top two -- however ...

  14. Four the magic number for Liverpool

    Kristian Walsh

    There is not a lot Brendan Rodgers can do when it comes to digesting Liverpool's 3-2 victory at West Ham. It is rare a match succumbs so forcefully to the wicked minds of the Fates. So many times the script was torn up, leaving it strewn across the ...

  15. An unlikely early qualification awaits

    Kristian Walsh

    Let it never be said the fixture list is cruel to Brendan Rodgers -- not in Europe, at least. By the time Liverpool's pre-match warm-up begins on Thursday, Anzhi Makhachkala's result against Udinese in Moscow will have filtered through; by the time L...

  16. A draw for Liverpool, but victory for Brendan Rodgers

    Kristian Walsh

    How quickly fortune can change. Within five seconds, delirium turned into despair; despair turned into delirium. The pendulum swings faster in a whirlwind. Suarez tapped in with what seemed the game's final breath, but Everton lived on with the lines...
