In a recent interview with the South Wales Evening Post, Swansea City Chairman Huw Jenkins seemed certain that sooner or later, the league's big clubs would be in for Brendan Rodgers, and Norwich City boss Paul Lambert. He argued:
"Given the way we have performed as a club and the football we have played, it's quite natural that our manager is going to be linked to other clubs.
"Whether it is Chelsea, Tottenham, Arsenal, Liverpool or whoever, we better get used to the fact that our manager is going to be mentioned if those jobs come up.
"Brendan and Norwich's Paul Lambert are probably going to be mentioned whenever a job comes up. That's just a fact of life."
Rodgers and Lambert: What do you think? Are they serious contenders to take over from Dalglish when he leaves the club?
I personally would love to see Rodgers give a chance. When Swansea came to Andfield earlier in the season, Liverpool's players were chasing shadows for much of the game, and that was down to pace, movement, skill, and overall brilliance of the Swansea team that day.
That performance was not a one-off either; Swansea have played well all season, and that's largely down to the positive pass and move footballing philosophy Rodgers has instilled at the club.
In a press conference earlier this week, Rodgers refuted suggestions that it was 'too soon' for him to move to a 'top club'. However, if he came to Liverpool, I just don't think the club's notoriously hypocritical fans would give him the time needed to turn things around. After a few bad results, the personal and professional attacks would begin, and he'd be hounded out of Anfield just like Roy Hodgson.
