Brendan Rodgers, Our ex-Manager

Recommended Posts

So it's a hunch that they have a shortlist of three, or you know there is a shortlist of three and its a hunch that De Boer is on it and Klopp / Ancelotti are not?

 

Let's be honest here. Nobody has got a clue.

I'm not convinced they have a short list.

 

When they sacked RFH they seemed to surprise themselves with their decision. Kenny had left for a holiday on the other side of the world the day before. They'd been here 4 months by then and couldn't forsee their own decision 24 hours in the future.

 

Then, they had ages to line up Kenny's replacement and yet, due to the very public parade of candidates, we again know they didn't make a move until Kenny's office was empty.

We should draw up a shortlist of replacements for them

 

I'll go Prince Alwaleed Bin Talal Alsaud, Mark Zuckerberg or tv's Richard Osman

I heard there are 3 main candidates who are under consideration & FDB is one. AVB is more of an educated guess.

According to Bild, Klopp isn't going to Borussia Moenchengladbach, who he was being linked to after their managed resigned yesterday.

Cheers - they spoke to AVB before so it wouldn't be a surprise

 

If they do approach AVB - it will be because they thought he was good last time around, you have to wonder whether they are taking into account his time at Spurs & Chelsea? He wasn't as bad as made out but we should be aiming higher.

I get the impression that they go more by whatever they're told by whoever is advising them, than by what certain managers have or haven't previously achieved.

 

Purely my opinion that, but it stacks up when you consider that they seemingly had no interest whatsoever in Rafa, aren't interested in Klopp after being 'warned off him' (if we believe a recent rumour), were keen on Martinez (who only didn't materialise because he wouldn't accept working with a Director of Football or transfer committee) and were seemingly interested in AVB.

 

It's very a*se about face, but they don't seem keen on guys with proven track records and do seem to like ones who have basically done nothing of note in the game.

 

All of which fit in with the mindset of people who know nothing about football. Or perhaps of people who want to try and pay a lesser salary and are willing to compromise on whether or not their chosen guy has an impressive CV, in the pursuit of saving on their outgoings.

Why are you referring to him as "the Belgium international"?

 

And Rodgers didn't absolve him,. far form it. He talked about having dropped him before, and that he could do it again. All he's said, and rightly so, was that it wasn't solely his fault, which it wasn't.

 

Pointlessly toxic on here at the moment. Everything the manager says is being dissected and each piece interpreted as negatively as possible.

 

Sunday was nowhere near good enough, but there were positives.

Er...it's a quote. The entire passage is lifted.

 

So check yourself comrade

 

He's a kook.

Pay attention to detail Stanley. Come round. This is the time when all good men must come to the aid of the party.

All things only a daft tw*t would do. All put together and they look like what they are with a team in thirteenth place...a feckin gain

they don't want the hassle that comes with big managers like Rafa or Klopp

 

how does this manifest? those managers want excellence in all areas and a smooth-running operation to facilitate it (remember Rafa's post-Athens rant?)

 

obviously our absentee owners and the bungling Ayre are not compatible with such a vision

 

and that's why Klopp and the like are not on the agenda, but a manager who would just be happy to be at Liverpool is

:lol: or just a better three. :lol:

It's like saying you pulled two birds last night and instead of saying Jessica Biel & Jessica Alba you say Anne Robinson & Pauline Quirke.

Rodger's defensive record is indefensible...149 goals conceded in 120 league games.

The problem is as clear as the nose on your face, so with that in mind, any manager who doesn't replace a disaster like Mignolet is a bad manager. You obviously need all the help you can get yet your decision making over that crucial position is glaringly way off. If it's so evidently wrong there, chances are it's wrong all over the place.

First Liverpool manager since Souness to be the boss for at least a season and average more than a goal a game conceded.

 

Worst defensive record since Phil Taylor, including Hodgson.

Of more concern than Mignolet is spending £40 million on Lovren and Sahko.

It isn't.

Replacing Mignolet was priority one this summer or at least it should have been.

Priority number one was getting a top central midfielder in who could boss our midfield, splash the cash and replace one of the teams greatest ever players. Someone to replace his guile, goals and determination.

 

We got Milner on a free.

Cabaye would have been a good signing
