Reading Sack Brian McDermott

What do Reading FC think they will achieve sacking Brian McDermott with just 9 games remaining of the Premier League season? No one can come in and learn the club & players as well as turning their results around in that space of time. There’s only one man that could get them out of the relegation zone; the man who got them promoted, the man they have just sacked.

Liverpool’s Stars Start To Shine

Brendan Rodgers has not been many Liverpool fans’ first choice for the managers role since ‘King Kenny’ left at the end of last season. But slowly, the Irishman is starting to prove his critics wrong with the emergence of his new crop of young stars. The January additions of £12million striker Daniel Sturridge & £8million playmaker Phillipe Coutinho from Chelsea and Inter Milan respectively are looking more like the bargains of the season with every game. Foiled with the undoubted class and goal scoring form of Luis Suarez, Liverpool fans should be looking forward to what is to come.

Coutinho was dubbed the ‘next best thing’ following his move from Brazilian club Vasco Da Gama to Internazionale of Italy. But a loss of form and mediocre loan spells in Spain prompted Inter to cash in on him, much to the delight of Liverpool. Capturing Coutinho at a cut price of £8million will be looked on as a coup following his impressive performances so far for the Anfield club, even more so if he can continue to imrove at the rate already shown. His attacking position should give Steven Gerrard time to adjust to a more withdrawn role as the years role on, while still dictating the play.

Daniel Sturridge barely had a look in at Stamford Bridge for his preferred central striker’s role after an exceptional loan spell at Bolton in which goals were in abundance. So with Liverpool guaranteeing the strikers role alongside Suarez, Sturridge jumped at the chance.

Luis Suarez is slowly but surely winning round his critics with the improvement of his on field behaviour, not to mention his incredible touch and eye for goal. Many believe he should scoop 2012/13 Player of the Year award, but with previous run in’s with the FA, it is thought he may just miss out.

Overall, Liverpool fans and Brendan Rodgers have a lot to look forward to if 2013 so far is anything to go by. With Rodgers’ disciplined, passing style, Liverpool could see the glory days return sooner that though.
