It is common form at this time of year for the rumour mill to enter overdrive. Moreover, the desire for owners and managers up and down the country to invest in the latest crop of supposed wonderkids is bubbling ferociously, all keen to get their hands on that prize asset who may prove the difference in those tight relegation battles and enthralling title challenges. For Liverpool’s new boss, Brendan Rodgers, pastures new await as he embarks on an exciting stage in his impressive career, short thus far, but promising in every way. Unlike his predecessor, Rodgers’ red revolution will commence without the weight of typical Merseyside expectations, but instead with caution and a certain degree of uneasiness.

You would be forgiven for thinking that the Anfield board room is getting a little hard to breathe in, with the talk of all these ‘big’ name managers being banded around. But whilst Fenway Sports Group are suffocating with excitement at the thought of Fabio Capello, Pep Guardiola or even Paul Lambert agreeing to take the Liverpool hot seat, I’m reluctant to suggest they may be missing a rather glorious trick.

Dear New Liverpool Manager,
Congratulations on your new appointment and welcome to your 12 month probationary period!
Before you look about the place and get to work, we’d like to remind you of certain contractual obligations that we, Fenway Sports Group, have set in place for the long term. These are not subject to negotiation.
I can’t say I envy Roy Hodgson. Or, as a matter of fact, anyone that becomes England manager. A manager is brought in to impose their own mentalities, their own perceptions onto the team, and change the way the team according to those views. The England manager, however, seems to be a position where this isn’t the case.
