Liverpool can look to build a new era under Rodgers

It’s a new beginning at Anfield and a very positive one. Liverpool owners have finally found their man. Replacing a club icon is never easy, but in Brendan Rodgers, who has agreed to sign a three-year contract, the club sees a young man with a vision in eye and commitment to attractive football.

Roma's defense led by a Danish bloke, Simon Kjaer could only admire helplessly the sublime right & left foot of Del Piero and Giaccherini, the two goal scorers for Juventus.
