So many threads talking about Rodgers & his tactics, it's hard to keep up!
So, after watching the MOTD vid where Rodgers discusses his premier league all time dream team.
Shearer & Savage choose 442, Rodgers chose a 4231, and selecting players to suit the system, as opposed to simply the best 11 players.
This is his Selection, The full backs are solid. Both defenders are tough (why include Terry?).
He has a combative MD alongside a more fluid passer, though he mentions both are fiesty.
Above this he has Zola to complete the passing triangle in centre mid.
There are 2 wide players who can be very direct, can cut inside or go wide, and have an eye for goal.
Up top there is a proven goal scorer who knows where the 6 yard line is.
How could this manifest itself in the Liverpool team?
Well, ofcourse Pepe is in goal. Solid Goalkeeper just like Schmeichal.
Agger & Skrtel in the centre of defence, both take no shit, but Agger has the ball playing librero talent.
Johnson fits perfectly on the right wing, and of the 2 full backs will be the more forward playing one
Enrique on the left side is solid defensively, but a bit clueless in attack. I reckon Rodgers can improve him.
In the middle, Lucas is Keane from that above team, Can henderson or Aquilani fit the role of Scholes? In light of creating a passing triangle, i reckon they can.
The centre of that midfield triangle, I'm not sure we have the player for that role yet, Maybe Aquilani or Cole if we don't get anyone, but i think this is the spot Rodgers will definitely buy a player for.
Id have Gerrard & Suarez either side of the hole. Up Top, well Andy doesn't fit with the ideal selection of Rodgers, but this is the spot he will play. Will Rodgers go out and get a fox in the box as an alternative?
We will see.
