The wait for the new Premier League season is nearing its end.
And when it finally does—this Saturday—us footie fanatics will get to enjoy the enthralling experience which is the English Premier League for a whole new time again.
However, for the gazillions of Liverpool supporters around the world, this Saturday marks the beginning of a new era—the Brendan Rodgers era—as they expectantly hope that the Irishman takes the mighty Reds back to where they belong, as one of the original title contenders.
And the first step in that process begins at the Hawthorns against West Bromwich Albion under new manager, Steve Clarke.
For Clarke—who served as assistant manager under Kenny Dalglish—the opportunity (with the Baggies) marks his first as head coach with a club playing at the top level.
And he will ensure that his team walks away with all the honours by exploiting the weaknesses of the Liverpool players of which he knows too much.
So, expect Rodgers’ men to run into some tough competition.
However, one can’t rule out the fact that the gaffer may have something special up his sleeve for the special occasion.
