Brendan Rodgers: Insists he is not the "enemy to the officials"

Brendan Rodgers: Insists he is not the "enemy to the officials"

Rodgers was fined £8,000 after accepting an FA charge for questioning the integrity of Mason following the Boxing Day defeat to Manchester City.

"My view hasn't changed. I obviously accept the punishment but I'm not one who is the enemy to the officials," he said.

"My history will show that, I have always supported and encouraged them.

"I was disappointed after the game, disappointed with the outcome (the fine) considering my history but all I was doing was speaking honestly and in no way was I questioning the integrity of the referee.

"I was just talking about the logic and facts about other appointments would prove that true I am sure.

"But it is gone. The only reason I never challenged it was because I didn't want anything getting in the way of what we are trying to do here.

"It would just prolong it and be something else to talk about when all I want is for us to talk about is our football."

Yes some elements of their fanbase can be a bit OTT, yes they're our biggest rivals and yes it will make our poor season feel even more like the end of an era (Fergie's gone, Liverpool are back on top). However I just have to applaud Brendan Rodgers and the way he's turned Liverpool around in just a couple of seasons. It...

Please Stop Telling Us What To Think

ooray! We are all excited now, we beat a very mediocre team! With all due respect to WHU supporters, not winning that game shouldn't even be a consideration. This is the problem, there is no winning mentality at the Emirates - we're all congratulating ourselves beating a team that we have a winning record against.

s this meant to be an aspiration for United supporters? Moyes mediocrity strikes again. I see the Bayern boys don't want to sign for him, and his reputation amongst the senior European coaches make other key signings unlikely.
