Poll of the Day: How will Rodgers fare in his first season at Liverpool?

The Northern Irishman is set to be unveiled as the new Reds boss to replace Kop legend Kenny Dalglish and we want to know if you think he will hit the ground running at Anfield

The process to find a replacement for Kenny Dalglish at Liverpool appears to be entering its end game, with reports emerging that Brendan Rodgers has been offered the role.

The Northern Irishman enjoyed a hugely successful maiden Premier League season, helping Swansea to a mid-table finish and earning plaudits for his side's passing style.

Now, having taken four points from Dalglish's Reds last term, the former Reading boss is the Scot's successor in the Anfield hotseat - and he faces no easy task.

The Merseyside outfit finished a disappointing eighth last season, a lacklustre showing which the club's owners deemed insufficient despite triumph in the League Cup and an FA Cup final appearance.

The American owners have made no secret of their desire to get Liverpool back into the Champions League since their arrival, but is Rodgers the right man to do that?


It would take a disaster of biblical proportions for the Reds to be relegated but could they at least finish in the bottom half of the Premier League for the first time in the 39-year-old's first season? Or will the new man do little to improve on Dalglish and simply secure a top-half finish?

Will he guarantee Europa League football at Anfield or even a return to Europe's premier competition at the first time of asking? Could Rodgers even perform a minor miracle by leading the Reds to second or, unthinkably, the Premier League title?
