Third season without silverware for Rodgers

Rodgers is first Pool manager since 1959 to complete three seasons without silverware

EMPTY FEELING: Liverpool boss Brendan Rodgers finds himself under the microscope after failing to deliver despite spending so much.

All dressed up with nowhere to go. That was Brendan Rodgers’ subs bench in the FA Cup semi-final against Aston Villa on Sunday.

The badge said Liverpool, but the names were imposters. They didn’t belong, writes Neil Humphreys.

Rodgers knows the feeling. 

With every significant defeat, tactical blunder and unwanted record, Rodgers takes a step towards the guillotine, the architect of his own downfall.

After Villa’s thoroughly deserved victory, the Northern Irishman becomes the first Liverpool manager since 1959 to complete three seasons without major silverware.

Even Champions League qualification is unlikely now.

Pressure on footballers to win SEA Games gold

Sahil and Faris want 
to show at SEA Games 
that Singapore 
football 'is not dead'

AS ONE: Sahil Suhaimi (No. 7) and Faris Ramli believe that they have no problems gelling with the SEA Games squad, which are made up of mostly players from the Courts Young Lions.

The Singapore Under-23s have not had much to shout about as they prepare for the 28th South-east Asia Games here in June.

The pressure is on the footballers to deliver on home soil, and flying winger Faris Ramli and striker Sahil Suhaimi will carry much of the burden as Aide Iskandar’s side try to at least reach the final.

The two youngsters from Malaysian Super League side the LionsXII talk to David Lee about their hopes and the team’s chances.

No white flag 
from Aide

Young Lions coach draws parallels with Lions' 2004 Tiger Cup win

They held possession well at the Jalan Besar Stadium in the first half last night, dominated proceedings, and even took the lead.  

 

But at the end, it was the same story for this year's Courts Young Lions - good in flashes, but just not good enough.

 

Aide Iskandar's boys fell 2-1 to S.League defending champions Warriors FC, a result that saw goalscorer Adam Swandi throw his face down onto the ground at full-time.  

As they gear up for the South-east Asia Games here in June, the team that make up the majority of the players for the SEA Games squadstruggle to find any sort of rhythm and confidence. 

Aide, though, is adamant he will not wave the white flag.

PUBLIC TRANSPORT: A Bedford OB bus belonging to one of the Chinese bus companies plying the Finlayson Green Route. Buses that did not belong to the Singapore Traction Company were required by law to display a circular disc displaying the letters H, C, S; which stands for Hackney Carriage Singapore.
LOOKING BACK: Trolleybus No. 9, operated by the Singapore Traction Company. Pictured is Service 6, which ran between Finlayson Green and Newton Circus. The photo was taken at North Bridge Road, with the Odeon Theatre in the background.
SKY VIEW: An aerial view of downtown Singapore, with Clifford Pier in the foreground, which was a landing point for immigrants and other sea passengers.
