Brendan Rodgers Quotes


AE

Recommended Posts

Not quite Shankly, but he has time to improve...........

 

“You can only sell the dream going forward,” he said. “There’s a lot of nostalgia surrounding this club, but it’s important we recognise this is 2012 and we’re not in the Champions League.

 

“The top players want to play at that level. Steven Gerrard wants to play at that level, Jamie Carragher, they’re players who have won it.

 

“In the coming years we’ll strive towards that. If that’s not enough for a player, then they will go, simple as that.”

Striving for Champions League 'in the coming years'. What ambition the club is showing these days.

 

Not sure if serious but...

 

We have to walk before we can run. We have to get back in the top four before we can seriously think of winning the title.

 

We shouldn't say it's impossible, and i'm sure he doesn't think it is, but I dont expect to hear the manager say our target is winning the league next season, as that would be foolhardy

We'll be a club aspiring to finish in the top half next.

Practically everything Rodgers has said so far has been spot on but those quotes could easily be Hodgson when he took over.

 

 

There shouldn't just be nostalgia there should be expectation. And if owners and managers can't handle that then they should f*** off.

'I have got an inner belief and an inner faith with God. I do believe spiritually we have to progress because we've been here before. The physical body is just an overcoat for your spirit. At death you take the overcoat off and your spirit will go on to another life in a spirit dimension.

 

'I think we make mistakes when we are down here and our spirit has to come back and learn. That's why there is an injustice in the world. Why there's certain people born into the world with terrible physical problems and why there's a family who has got everything right, physically and mentally.'

 

Or was that Hoddle?

So what should he say our short-term ambitions are?

 

 

I liked it when we went round saying we were Liverpool Football Club and expected to win every football match we played in.

 

They were great days weren't they?

It was not a response to BR, but to the responder to Andy-oh-six

 

Does BR have to say what our short term ambitions are?

 

As far as I am concerned, our ambition is to win trophies, end of. If he can't say that because the players aren't good or numerous enough, or our owners aren't rich enough, he should say nothing, or skillfully avoid the question. Take each match as it comes is the easy one.

And that's a real short-term goal for the team is it? To "win all our games"?

 

I'd be more concerned if he came out and said something meaningless like that.

 

We need an actual strategy to get us back challenging.

Fair enough.

 

Seems clear the importance of becoming a champions league club as quickly as possible again has already been communicated to him.

Are we really doing a Rodgers Quotes thread?!!!

 

And those are the highlights?!!!!!! Okay...

 

"I'll have chicken, mash and, er, some beans I think. Thanks."

 

didn't we have a similar thread when Hodgson was appointed

 

So what should he say our short-term ambitions are?

 

we should be aiming to be in the top four this season

it's the only sensible approach really

 

saying anything else is a load of arl fart

This is it.

Fine. But not sure we can really say whether thats on until our business is done. And anyone who thinks finishing top four is a given and should be viewed as the bare minimum is a bit naive. We finished 8th last season. There's work to do to get back into the top 4. Even when we were very good under Rafa it would have been a challenge with the emergence of City and the improvement of Spurs.

Agree. And I can see Smithdown and Gomez's point of not even going into objectives and just keeping schtum.

 

Hard for a new manager of LFC, mind, as it's probably all he's being asked.

 

Talk is cheap though. I'm more interested in who we buy.

without doubt

 

our current squad isn't good enough to challenge the top 4, Rodgers needs to get his signings right, and they need to be ambitious signings, not f***ing about with the likes of Mark Davies

This is the rub. It's really not. Need a summer of astute signings that improve the team to a degree that we are, hopefully, back challenging near the top.

 

Much easier said than done, obviously.
