Brendan Rodgers developments bring Liverpool some much-needed certainty

Brendan Rodgers 2

It seems that Brendan Rodgers' future as Liverpool manager is secure for the time being, which takes away some uncertainty.

The reports emerging from Liverpool Football Club yesterday, reported by the Liverpool Echo, indicate that Brendan Rodgers will be the manager of the club at the start of the 2015-16 season.

This is despite last season's very poor performance, where the side took 22 fewer points in the league than their previous campaign, ended the season without silverware and produced an uninspiring European campaign that ended in failure.

Now, at least, there is clarity and a little less uncertainty surrounding the club and the direction it is going in.

But there are still unanswered questions, though some reports have said the talks produced a comprehensive plan in order to improve the side going forward. 

Does that mean the transfer policy will remain? With both Danny Ings and James Milner set to sign for the club on free transfers - though Ings will arrive with the fee set by a tribunal given he is under 23 - there appears to be no drastic shift in transfer policy. Both of them are players that Rodgers knows well and have performed in the Premier League, though at differing levels. 

Some Liverpool fans will be unhappy with the news that Rodgers is likely to stay - arguing that the way the season ended by way of a 6-1 defeat to Stoke City on the last day of the Premier League season was the thin of the edge, and argued his position was untenable. 

That's a fair argument, but on the other hand the club went further backwards the last time they sacked their manager after a poor season following their title challenge, so therefore the current manager should be given the next season to show signs of improvement and that the club can kick on again. 

It's a big call from the ownership, and it must be they who carry the can for any failure, but if it pays off they should get the plaudits. 

Now they've backed Rodgers for the season, it needs to be reflected in the transfer market.
