Liverpool lining up Jurgen Klopp as Brendan Rodgers replacement


Everyone who was extolling the virtues of Brendan Rodgers last year is ripping him now. The Northern Irishman admits he’s feeling the pressure, and knows his job isn’t all that secure. He even made some remarks today alluding to the fact that he’s on the hot seat.

“I will only ever do my best. The best has seen us develop well. Now I need to fight even harder and take the responsibility, because as manager full responsibility comes down to me. Any pressure comes on to me,” Brendan Rodgers said.

Brendan Rodgers admits his job is insecure


Unofficially, they were 8 books published about Liverpool’s runner-up finish last season. That might seem ridiculous; bestowing that much honor on what Brendan Rodgers accomplished last year. After all, it was still second place. But now, with the disaster that’s unfolding this season thus far…second place seems glorious. And while everyone was praising Brendan Rodgers last year; they’re slamming him now.

The Northern Irishman admits he’s feeling the pressure, and knows his job isn’t all that secure.

Liverpool transfer rumors: Lambert, Balotelli, Redmond, Lucas



It’s Sunday, so that means it’s time to talk Liverpool transfer rumors, and as you might expect, the name Mario Balotelli came up. Yes, we know he just got here, so you would think a move away from Anfield would be unlikely, but it’s not as far outside the realm of possibility as it may seem. Although he’s certainly been a model citizen off the pitch, he’s goal less in nine Premier League games.

Penn State football fans need to move past Tim Beckman hatred


Given the approach that Tim Beckman took to openly recruiting Penn State football players, in the wake of the sanctions imposed in 2012, Nittany Nation would have liked nothing more than a little karmic payback. Had this Penn State football team won today, it might have possibly been the final nail in the coffin of his Illini regime. Obviously, it didn’t happen that way as Illinois won 16-14 and the hate for Beckman in Central Pennsylvania grows even stronger.

Louis van Gaal parody Twitter accounts are LOL!


The idea of Louis van Gaal having his own verified official Twitter account is…..well, Kim Kardashian will actually develop a talent before that happens.

You need someone with big time confidence to manage a big club and handle big time pressure.

LVG is all of those. Also, Van Gaal rarely makes it through a press conference without referring to himself in the third person. “The world did not change in regards to Danny Welbeck,” said Louis van Gaal.
