brendan rodgersFenway Sports Group (FSG) and Liverpool Football Club announced that Brendan Rodgers has been appointed as the club's new manager, last Friday morning after signing a contract.

Rodgers, 39, is regarded as being at the forefront of a new generation of football coaches, an excellent tactician and motivator with a progressive philosophy. After an extensive two-week process where many highly-qualified candidates were carefully considered, Liverpool's ownership group identified Rodgers as the single outstanding candidate to implement their long-term vision.

The cat that wandered onto the pitch during Premier League match between Liverpool and Tottenham has already drawn some 36,000 followers on a Twitter account.

Anfield Cat The grey and white tabby ran onto the field 11 minutes into the first half of the match at Anfield football stadium in Liverpool. It scampered toward Tottenham keeper Brad Friedel's goal and past Kop manager Kenny Dalglish before being scooped up by a steward and carried off the pitch.

Shortly after the cat's one-minute appearance on the pitch, though, a Twitter profile, @AnfieldCat, sprang up, and attracted thousands of followers.

The account, which claims to be the "official twitter of me, the Anfield Cat", so far includes tweets such as, “just had villas boas on the phone asking me to teach fernando torres how to get in the box,” “was scratching at the shankly gates all night last night, back inside now and working on my ball control with @Dirk_18_Kuyt,” “fernando torres reportedly jealous I got a bigger cheer than he has all season,” and “milk is so expensive at football stadiums, it’s an epic swindle.”

anfield Liverpool managing director Ian Ayre has reassured fans the club will not follow in the footsteps of the likes of Newcastle by selling the naming rights of Anfield.

The Magpies joined the increasing number of clubs who have renamed their stadiums by dumping their renowned "St James Park" for "Sports Direct Arena".

Arsenal and Manchester City are among the top clubs who have made the switch as the lucrative sponsorship deals proved too tempting to turn down.

But Ayre insists Liverpool will not go down that road due to the history and tradition of Anfield.

"We have no intention of exploring naming rights for Anfield," he was quoted as saying in The Daily Mirror.

"It has been a name deeply ingrained in our ground and our club for more than 100 years and I can't imagine any Liverpool fan calling the current stadium anything else.

"That's different in a new stadium as it's a new start and a new proposition, and we are actively talking to potential naming partners for a new stadium [if that happens], but we have never considered renaming our spiritual home of Anfield."
