While the global economic recovery is in the balance under the stewardship of politicians and central bankers, I have much more faith in the ability of Brendan Rodgers to bring back the good times at Liverpool FC. Football fans are like investors in financial markets, constantly seeking instant gratification. However, a long term perspective based on solid foundations is the key to building a robust portfolio, as is the case in football and other walks of life. The near term may be more challenging than last year for Liverpool fans as we adjust to life after Suarez, but not to fear, Brendan Rodgers is the man that can once again build Liverpool into a “bastion of invincibility”. Like anything worth waiting for, it will just take time!
