Brendan Rodgers, Our ex-Manager


Recommended Posts

Are FSG willing to take on the fans by keeping him?

 

Sorry didn't respond to your last message, yeah I understand where you're coming from, but it's just one day in.

 

Looks like the whole he's safe is the dreaded vote of confidence before it falls.

 

I think they don't want to sack without a replacement.

If BR does stay, which i would still be surprised with, we must improve our scouting and transfer dealings hugely.

We have bought some good players but we have bought poorly way to many times and when a player is bought we really must play them in a position in which they can thrive rather than a position in which they have no confidence in playing.

If FSG decide to keep BR it will be a massive decision.

A major problem with the transfer dealings is the coach doesn't seem to rate either the strategy or the process and is trying to game his way around it. Also think there is an issue around who, why and when we let players go regards experience.

 

Some of it might be poor buying or wage bargaining up to five years back, but it's reckless to have lost nearly all the experience that was still here under Kenny at the same time as trying to nurture young players at the top level.

Ancelotti having a year off to get his back sorted. Rafa going to Madrid to replace Ancelotti.

Klopp stepping away from Dortmund so there's a bit of time & space before replacing City-bound Guardiola at Bayern next year.

 

The only positive is that by this time next summer Gary Monk will have an extra year of experience. :shudder:

Mediocrity from top to bottom.... If that's what they want then doing f*** all about it is what they will get..

 

I will be amazed if Rodgers gets given any kind of money to spend. I mean significant amount that is needed to sort it out. I wouldn't trust him with it at all.

As the piece says, the situation is very similar to the one that Kenny found himself in.

If the whole situation didn't make me feel ill to the pit of my stomach I think I would look to find which bookies are giving the best odds on BR being removed.

As with the prior managers, seems he's in place until he's not.

 

Back when Kenny went, there was no plan in place to replace him or Comolli. Hopefully we've learned from that.

Brendan Rodgers warned Liverpool's poor season CANNOT happen again - and that changes are coming


By Dave Maddock


If Rodgers can’t accept the changes – and they could yet include the ­appointment of a director of football – he will be asked to quietly step down


If Brendan Rodgers has been given firm assurances over his future, then they come with an even firmer caveat.


The Liverpool manager may have received confirmation that the club’s US owners will not hit the panic button, and their backing for him has not changed despite the 6-1 humiliation at Stoke.


Yet, along with that message, came another crucial one that will determine the direction in which the club will head as they contemplate a season of disappointment.


The word from the Americans is clear.


This season cannot happen again, so not only will there be a review, with their manager asked some brutally direct questions about his role in the failure, but there will be no sense of Rodgers being asked to simply continue in the same manner as this year.


There will be major changes, a “beyond robust” examination of the structures and cultures currently in place at Anfield - demanding alteration to ensure there is no repeat.


At present, the mood within the ownership group – made up of chairman Tom Werner, principal shareholder John Henry and director Michael Gordon – is those changes will stop short of the manager.


Gordon will direct the review and ask Rodgers to buy into not only the long-term strategy, but also deliver firm guarantees of rejoining Europe’s elite in the Champions League.


In short, they will gauge if he can meet his targets. It is here the manager’s future will be determined.


If Rodgers can’t accept the changes – and they could yet include the ­appointment of a director of football – he will be asked to quietly step down.


Likewise, the same message will be offered if he feels he can’t work within the club’s very closely defined transfer and wage policies which emphasise homegrown talent.


So far, all the indications are that the Ulsterman IS prepared to buy into that philosophy.


The review will get underway in earnest by the first week of June, when Rodgers is likely to travel to Boston to meet Gordon face to face, and sit down with him and Henry - and possibly Werner - to thrash out the changes.


Until then, the Americans will keep their powder dry.


They have made NO approach for any other manager, and will not make any enquiries, even if it means losing out on the available Jurgen Klopp.


The plan remains the same – Rodgers will continue into next season unless the review makes his position untenable.


It promises to be a pivotal month for Liverpool.

Shocking if true.. Next season will be toxic from the off. No change will highlight that the ambition of FSG does not match that of a club the size of LFC, it's all about generating positive cashflow and raising their profile through sponsorship deals ain't it :(

Aww, Monk versus Howe. Next year's Rodgers versus Martinez. Walking through Miami with JWH, Starbucks in hand, dossiers prepped on laptops.

 

Utopia.

How the f*** are these t***s qualified to make a decision on whether his answers are valid. Any other club and he'd be gone. It's shambolic, and it's going to get worse. We're seriously in massive trouble next season

These Jurno articles are stating the obvious. What FSG might be planning/ thinking, how it can't happen again next season....

It doesn't address the fact he's probably lost the dressing room, I mean 1-3, 6-1 on the bounce can't be a blip, they were all playing miserably. He's treated/ talked about/ blamed some players abysmally, Especially for someone whose been lauded a top 'man manager'.

If he is going I'm glad it hasn't been leaked, and we're all speculating because of it. he deserves the respect of hearing it first and to his his face.

But if he is going why make him wait till June? Now would be a better time.

Chill out everyone, he's going to be asked some brutally direct questions, it will be fine.

 

f***ing spoofers.

Plus a robust review...

 

The only straw I'm clinging to is that this review is tied into his contract and therefore has to take place. If they have already decided the outcome...they'll be in breach...

 

I know...its weak, really weak but I don't want to deal with the alternative yet.
