After a resurgence to prominence over the last few years, Liverpool football club have seen their fortunes change, once again competing for Champions League football, and for the Premier League title.
And in the early stages of his Liverpool career, Brendan Rodgers once again gave fans champagne football and regular wins to celebrate.
The former Swansea manager led Liverpool to second place in 2014, and expectations were high last season having brought in lots of new players both at the start of last and the current season.

However, after a disappointing and hurtful derby loss to long-standing rivals Manchester United at the weekend, Liverpool fans are calling for Rodgers to be sacked, and for a better and more experienced replacement to be brought in. And rumour has it that one unsatisfied fan has even started fundraising to pay for his sacking.
Rodgers is a good manager, there is no doubting that. But his team are becoming easy to play against and easy to get a result against despite the talent in their ranks, evident in the thrashing they suffered by West Ham at Anfield just a couple of weeks ago.
I think Liverpool would be best suited looking for a more proven replacement as a candidate for the managerial role, and I think there should only be two names on that short list.
Jurgen Klopp, recently out of work after a somewhat below par season with Borussia Dortmund last year, which saw them in the relegation zone for long periods of the campaign.
However, Klopp's reputation as a manager needs no echoing. He led the German side to league and cup glory in 2012 for the first time in their history. He also won the league in consecutive years prior to this, and lets not forget he led Dortmund all the way to the Champions League final in 2013-2014, only to miss out to a late goal by Arjen Robben.
Carlo Ancelotti, perhaps one of the best managers ever to grace the game, recently sacked by Real Madrid, despite his incredible managerial record not only at Madrid, but also at Chelsea, PSG and AC Milan.
In his lengthy career, the Italian has won 17 trophies with his various different clubs, including the Champions League a stunning three times, something no other man has achieved.
Both of these men would be stellar managerial additions to the Premier League, and perhaps have the footballing pedigree to catapult Liverpool back to their former glory of winning trophies, as they have struggled to compete for trophies since their famous European triumph in Istanbul in 2005.
However, as mentioned previously, it's hard to envisage the Merseyside club getting rid of Rodgers, after providing him with heavy financial backing over the last few years to bring in new players.
Most notably, the signing of Christian Benteke, who scored an incredible overhead kick in Saturday's defeat to Manchester United.
