Brendan Rodgers is rightfully under scrutiny for Liverpool's poor start to the season; however, he should be given the chance to correct the failings of the side for the following reasons:
What is known is that Liverpool have targeted several world class or international level players in recent years. However, Liverpool have failed secure the signatures of the following after long protracted negotiations: Alexis Sanchez, Loic Remy Konoplyanka, Mohamed Salah, Diego Costa, Willian, Mkhitaryan, Sigurdsson and Dempsey.
Furthermore, it is not rare to see Liverpool heavily linked with high calibre players such as Wilfried Bony or Xherdan Shaqiri before signing a younger, cheaper, less established player.
As stated before, it is unknown how much of this is down to Rodgers, but considering it is a known club policy to sign players under the age of 27 who also have a re-sale value, it is highly unlikely a different manager will have greater success in the transfer market.
After the 3-1 defeat to Crystal Palace, Rodgers brought back Kolo Toure and Lucas Leiva in order to tighten up at the back. It had an immediate effect of two wins and a draw, conceding only once.
Since then, Rodgers has gone one step further in improving the team's attacking abilities by switching to a 3-4-3 formation. Although losing 3-0 to Manchester United, it easily could have been 3-3 or even 3-6 in Liverpool's favour. That was followed up by a 3-1 win against Bournemouth in the Capital One Cup. Judging from the two matches, the attacking verve is back, albeit without a prolific goalscorer to put away the chances created. That could be easily solved when Sturridge is fit and when by buying another striker in the transfer market.
