Calling curtains on Brendan Rodgers Liverpool career was met with some fans rejoice, and some are baffled by the departure.
Liverpool legend Jamie Carragher was quoted in the Daily Mail as saying "This is the way Newcastle or Tottenham treat managers." Some people may agree with Carragher or they may think he is off his rocker.
On paper, Liverpool are only six points away from the top of the table and a mere three points away from fourth, this would lead some people to speculate that John Henry was a little bit quick on the trigger in sacking Rodgers.

However, Rodgers was given a fair chance in the three years he was at the club, he made us dream in that wonderful season and brought us Champions League football for a season.
But this was done without a trophy to show for all those memories that will live on forever in the hearts of Liverpool supporters around the globe. Out of the 22 managers that Liverpool have had in their 123-year history, only seven of those have failed to win a trophy. Even George Kay who was manager during World War II managed to deliver one trophy.
People are also saying that he needed more time to work with the players that he had been given and that in a few years we would be a "European Force," I for one think that if we stayed with Rodgers for the next few years it would have lead to more and more bad signings and more players like the "Welsh Xavi."
When it comes down to the harsh reality for some, Rodgers is gone and a new light in the form of a new manager is upon us. At the risk of being called a hypocrite however, whoever is appointed manager will need time to show the results that we so desperately need.
Granted I wouldn't wait three years to see results but it will at least take the rest of this season and a very good off-season for Liverpool to turn the misfortune of recent years back into the giant killing, European powerhouse that Liverpool football club is!
