Brendan Rodgers took over as Liverpool manager in the summer with the objective of rebuilding the playing staff, putting his own tactics and formation into action and leading the club back to, ultimately, Champions League football and a chance to fight for the Premier League title.
It's just six months into that job and he has already experienced plenty of ups and downs, both on the pitch and off of it.
A busy transfer window saw targets come and go, household names depart and, after initially getting a few good names in, a farcical deadline day give a negative vibe to the end of August.
By then he had already overseen his first league defeat, made his managerial debut in Europe and gotten a glimpse at what the pressures of managing a club the size of Liverpool would be like—not to mention he had featured prominently in the behind-the-scenes documentary about the club.
It took a while for the team to record their first victory in the league under the Northern Irish manager, but there has been steady, evident progress in performances and results and as Liverpool approach the halfway stage of his debut season they sit in eighth place in the table.
Eighth, of course, being exactly where they ended the last campaign.
