Ken's target of 4th was based on 3 factors:

1) his caretaker period at the club yielded enough points (pro-rata) to finish second in the premier league
2) he spent 115m to further increase his chances of CL qualification
3) a little naiveity on FSG's part of the task in hand

Rodgers will be starting with a clean slate and FSG will be a bit wiser as to what is required to break into the top 4. Furthermore he will be handicapped somewhat by the poor quality of squad that Dalglish left behind. If you're going to expect 4th from Rodgers in his first season then you WILL be mightily disappointed.
To achieve 4th we will need to improve by 4 positions and overtake either chelsea (european champions who have already spent more than we will be able to), or arsenal (wfinished 3rd last season). It's massively unrealistic and I'd bet good money that FSG have not told him that 4th is the expectation otherwise he'd have told them to 'dream on!', and get someone else to sack next summer.

Yes KP, but as we know, we weren't even close to fourth! If we were finishing 5th or 6th and missed out by 5-7 pts then they may have given him another chance.

8th (Crikey) and looking nowhere near 4th?

No alternative.

As for BR. Has to challenger for toop four for me and get pretty darn close if he fails!

For me it is way too early to tell. Depends so much on changes to the current squad. How many current players will be sold? How much does the new boss get to spend this summer?

Regardless, I'm guessing FSG and the new boss will continue the company line "qualify for CL".

Quite simple to see improvements.

If we are moving forward making progress then I'd be happy as eventually we will be back in the top group.
