    With Lallana and Lovren about to leave, both came in during the Rodgers era..

    Who do you consider to be Rodgers best Ever signing ?

    Tough one to choose for me
    Between Milly and Frim.. Both equally instrumental to the clubs recent success.

    Frim on the field, our front 3 wouldn't be what it is without him.. Milly on and off the field with his experience and professionalism

    I still think alot of people didn't realise just how good a fit and firing Sturridge was. He was dynamite.

    Milner was his most intelligent signing by far. Coutinho was his most lucky.

    Firmino and Coutinho were committee signings.

    Always had the feeling acquisitions were committee signings when they didn't work out and Rodgers's when they did :rolleyes:

    Benteke was the most daft signing Rodgers ever made.. I struggled with it.. that was his signing..

    He basically brought in what he essentially wanted to get rid off when he became manager, as he didn't fit with his style of play..

    Andy Carroll

    I just struggled to understand it, with his previous stance on Andy Carroll

    These kind of threads always go wrong really when we start speculating on whether players were wanted by the manager or owners.

    Rightly or wrongly if I'm giving Rodgers the credit for Coutinho, Sturridge, Milner etc then he is also getting the blame for Benteke, Borini, Aspas, Balotelli etc.

    His best signing would probably be Coutinho, for the reasons Woland gave. For longer term individual impact on the team, I'd probably say Firmino.

    Depending on how things pan out, it might well end up being Gomez though

    The Balotelli “panic” buy after seeing Rickie Lambert really struggle in training HAS to be a pivotal moment in Rodgers managerial career if he’s going to get a Big 6 job....

    Is that why we signed him? I didn't know about the Lambert aspect. I just thought we were running out of options, hence the panic.

    I can kinda imagine Rodgers sitting watching Liverpool games on TV and constantly commenting to anyone who will listen on the players that he signed, ignoring all the others.

    It was. I love Lambert, hometown kid living his dream. But when they got up close and personal in training, everyone knew that at 7/10 he was significantly short of what we needed. Rodgers just totally rolled the dice on Balotelli - the antithesis of Lambert, talent to burn, but zero application or common sense

    And Rurik, unlike someone else not to be mentioned, spelt them both correctly!

    I dont believe Rodgers ever wanted Baloteli, his statements at the time made that clear. If people are willing to praise the committee for the likes of Firmino and Coutinho then they can wear the almighty fuck up that was Baloteli.

    This is totally back to front. Totally.

    Rodgers was panicking, and made a big noise about not having any freedom to make deals. The committee absolutely did not want Balotelli but acquiesced after a bit of to-ing and fro-ing.

    He was 100% the driving force behind signing him.
