Brendan Rodgers has been sacked as Liverpool manager

Yes, Brendan Rodgers has been sacked by FSG following the draw with Everton at Goodison.

A lot of people knew it was coming but few thought it would happen this fast and most of us were shocked by the suddeness of it. Some people hated him ever since Being Liverpool. Some thought he was a fraud. Some thought that he should have been given more time. Some thought he was good for Liverpool for quite a while and then he wasn't. Some thought it was simply time for a change. Even if you didn't like him, losing a manager is a terrible shocking thing and can leave you quite out of sorts. We're here to help you out. 


We'll add more to this as the day goes on, but here is a collection of articles on what happened, what might happen next and some discussion to get you through it. Read the one with * *'s first.
