Rodgers rules out January spending spree

Liverpool boss Brendan Rodgers insists his current squad will be given time to prove themselves after ruling out a January spending spree.

A run of one win from Liverpool's last four Premier League games has placed Rodgers' men under close scrutiny, especially in the wake of Sunday's 3-1 defeat at Hull City.

Strength in depth in comparison to the club's main rivals is a factor that has kept Liverpool out of the top four in each of the last four seasons.

Rodgers addressed that by signing the likes of goalkeeper Simon Mignolet and striker Daniel Sturridge from Sunderland and Chelsea respectively and has played down the likelihood of spending big when the winter transfer window opens next month.

"The thing for me is trying to maximise the players we have got," said Rodgers in the build-up to Wednesday's Anfield clash with Norwich City.

"There's no hiding from the fact we spent money to get players in; now they will get the chance to perform.

"We tried to get a host of players in who could improve us but that didn't materialise. A lot of work went into it.

"What is the case is we are not in a position to spend money for the sake of it."

Well if you or your pathetic Commitee didn't waist £45.000.000 Million Pound on Allen Borini Aspas Assaidi & Alberto,then take Moses & Cissokho on loan ( We might be in a better position ) Most Liverpool Supporters new we needed the midfield GENERAL with Pace Power Strength Creativity summer 2013,yet you screwed up buying chumps in Aspas Alberto & Spending close to £25.000.000 Million Pound for Sakho & Ilori because you and your Shambolic scouts didn't think it througth.Now where screwed in attack due to your negligence ;-) I can't wait till your SHAMBOLIC signings screw our season up,because we'll be asking for your head by Feb 2014...

You let a brilliant creative player in SUSO go out on loan to Almera,while buying 2 chumps with zero creativity ( Aspas & Alberto ) while taking a LAZY BASTARD in Moses on loan from Chelsea ( TRUELY SHAMBOLIC MAN-MANAGEMENT ) STOP BUYING PLAYERS YOU'VE WORKED WITH,NOT ONE HAS BEEN ANY GOOD ( OR WORTH THERE MONEY )
