..can anyone set me at ease, at all? Anyone?
I've been shrugging off football lately, last year i nearly walked away after the Suarez affair which killed my love for the sport, i've been sticking it on the back burner and trying to put my mind on other things.
After Kenny was sacked those feelings returned, the disassociation came back stronger than ever. After the relief of Rogers being given the hot seat over Martinez, my tiny shred of optimism has recently turned into fully fledged despair at seeing us slowly slip away. It feels like this is happening, i don't feel that this is a new start, i dont have any confidence going forward and faith, it feels more like the epilogue.
I understand theres changes underway, i understand some players have their time and move on, thats football and thats life. But whats happening lately is setting the alarm bells off for the second time in 6 years and i think im finally losing the will to support a club that means a whole lot.
This isn't a post for sticking a knife into the owners, people know my stance on here regarding them which is less than impressed, but the slashed wages cull, the huge links of major squad players being rumoured to be off like Skrtel, Agger, Carroll (whether you like him or not), Bellamy, Aquilani (yes the guy is worth a shot), and even Pepe on top of the loss of Kuyt and Maxi is extremely worrying. The incoming rumours seem to be 20% of the outgoings. The club has no structure at the top and we have Brendan Rodgers who may sink or may swim, and who is actually on a hiding to nothing in the long run, as we've seen before if the results don't follow, the cries will be on him before he's had time to warm his bench seat for half the season.
I've also noticed that henry is getting it from Sox fans too - what effect does that have for LFC in the long run?
So is it time to just let it slide, accept that this is it, this is the fall from grace thats been threatening to happen for a few years and hope that maybe in 10 years time we will have some sort of renaissance, and concentrate on family and work? Maybe it is.
One thing i do regret though, i used to moan about Rafa. I liked him but disagreed at times with some of his policies, but by goodness, the man had a plan and a vision and im so sorry it never got the chance to fulfill. I fear the same for Rogers. I think he has a plan and is a footballing man. i just dont think he will get the backing he needs, i think one of the main reasons he is here is to be 'resourceful' and possibly through grit, determination and fortune, scrape us back into the big time.
No doubt this thread may get locked if the topic strays, but i just want you to understand my frustration, and yeah i may snipe from time to time, but thats through the frustration. I guess we will see in the next few weeks.
