Liverpool fans need a pick me up. Misfiring strikers, misplaced passes from midfielders they once trusted the most and mystifying team selections.
Since Suarez left for Spain and Catalan giants Barcelona, Rodgers appears to have been unable to find the formula that made the Reds so lethal last season.
Ballotelli’s arrival has obviously been well documented too, and heavily under the microscope, which can’t of helped – but his form hasn’t either, and without Sturridge, Rodgers men have been about as threatening as a cat compared to their tigerish displays last year.
So after a difficult season so far for Liverpool and Brendan Rodgers, the international break it seemed would be welcomed at Anfield. However the latest update that Daniel Sturridge will be out for a further six weeks and probably wont play until next year, wont be – and Liverpool fans wont get what they wanted for Christmas this year
And like Scrooge, as you can imagine Liverpool fans aren’t getting into the festive spirits.
From Chelsea fans ‘I told you so’s to sunsets, Suarez and suede shoes – here’s the response of Twitter to Sturridge’s injury.

Can see why Chelsea let Sturridge go now. Another 6 weeks out.

No Sturridge until 2015 then. Tough ask getting through to the knock out stages of the Champions League now I think.

The Sturridge injury news wouldn’t be so bad if our manager didn’t spend the last few weeks pinning all hopes on his return

Please tell me this is all a great big joke and that we’re instead going to ride into the sunset with Sturridge and the returning Suarez

It’d quite possible that we’ll be out of the Champions League before Sturridge even gets to play in it. Huge shame.
