All change at LFC: Time to dump Rodgers for CL-winning boss...? (Guest Post)

Despite signs of progress this season, Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers continues to receive a mixed response from the club’s fan base. There are (arguably) plenty of positives to take from the boss's reign so far, but according to site regular Nick Blackley, there is still one crucially important factor missing in Rodgers' managerial make-up: Ruthlessness.

Unfortunately, Rodgers’ tenure is a mix of straight-up ass kissing and – like Kenny Dalglish before him - PR mistakes in relation to Luis Suarez.

Yes, Rodgers is possibly capable of getting Liverpool into the top four, but does he have what it takes to lead the Reds to the Premier League title?

Players in great teams are motivated by a fear of letting their manager down, and only authoritative managers who command the respect of players achieve this.

Do you think Man Utd players are scared of letting Fergie down? Absolutely! And he sure as hell lets them know it. Being a great man-manager isn’t about being submissive in a bid to make senior players feel good about themselves, but that is a major part of Rodgers’ managerial approach.

The biggest example of this is Rodgers’ relentless praise of “brilliant”, “fantastic” and “outstanding” players such as Gerrard and Suarez, or his own mini-me, Joe Allen.

The Liverpool website is basically a communal praising space where Rodgers endlessly massages players’ egos. How is Rodgers going to cultivate a winning mentality with such a soft approach to man-management?

If he defends Suarez all the time (i.e. most recently with the Ivanovic ban) then how is Suarez going to learn? If he’s going to praise the team after a dour draw or loss, how does he expect the players’ own standards improve?

In my opinion, Rodgers’ soft approach is a major reason for Liverpool’s unacceptably volatile inconsistency, and this raises quite an important question: Should Liverpool seize the chance to hire Carlo Ancelotti in the summer, or should they give Rodgers the chance to qualify for Europe?

I’m in favour of the bringing in Ancelotti. He’s tough, experienced, and definitely proven. I don’t see the point in allowing Rodgers to implement a very specific style of play for a few years, when there’s every possibility that he’ll eventually be cast aside for a more experienced, successful coach with a (more than likely) different football philosophy.

In my view, unless Rodgers overhauls his man-management style, he’ll never win the premier league. Sacking him after one year would be harsh, but it would arguably even worse to leave him be for a couple of years and then sack him after the high of qualifying for the champions league.

Stick or twist...?

  1. I agree about the criticism of Rodgers' approach to man management.

  2. For the record, I don't think Rodgers is a bad manager. He has the capability to be a very good one. People will now argue that Shankly and Ferguson were unproven before they reached their glory. But the key difference between Rodgers and those two is simply their ruthlessness. Jason Carr, you're going to love this article ;-)

  3. It would be madness to get rid of rodgers this summer. He's trying to institute something for the long term, whereas managers like ancelotti are short-term fixers. He'd come in, win a few trophies, and then leave after 2-3 years. Idoubt he'd pay too much attention to developing the youth set-up. Ancelotti would be just a hired hand, whereas rodgers is part of the club.

  4. what's so wrong with praising players? He may go a little too far, but where's the damage?

  5. Rodgers can't win, can he. If he publicly criticises players some folks will claim that these things should be discussed internally and that it is not the Liverpool way to discuss matters in public. If he doesn't some people start thinking that he is soft.

  6. Damage is the resulting delusional attitude by players and fans that everything is alright. If you want to set your goals high, you should be strict on the volume of praise you dish out.

  7. Not sure that he is missing ruthlessness to be honest. To tell a player that we paid 35 million for that he isn't wanted and telling players like Downing and Henderson that they could leave the club if they didn't start performing seems pretty ruthless to me. Do you necessarily have to be ruthless to win the league? I am not sure I would describe Wenger as ruthless but he has done it multiple times.

  8. I wouldnt want to see Ancelotti go to Liverpool with the intention of it being a short term appiontment which he has been doing lately.

    As for Kenny making a "pr mistake" with Suarez I think it was only a mistake because we now live in a world where denying you're a racist is now treated as being racist because many white people have a crippling anxiety to constantly prove they're not guilty of this massive taboo.

  9. I totally agree that Rodgers is soft. I doubt the players really respect him; how can you truly respect someone who constantly fawns all over you? Yes, on the outside they'll like him, but inside, the likes of Suarez, Gerrard, Agger etc know that no matter how badly they play, or what they do, Rodgers will defend them, and play them. He's clearly scared of upsetting the senior players, and to me it looks like he kowtows to them in a bid to keep them onside.

    If Liverpool dumped Rodgers this summer, it would be unfair, but I doubt to would ultimately end up being detrimental. I wouldn't push for it, but I wouldn't be too distraught if it happened.

  10. It's easy to have a go at the likes of Carroll, Downing etc. They're not his players; he didn't buy them, and if they're not in his plans anyway then it's just a way to push them towards the exit door.

  11. Well your support for Rodgers didn't last too long. It's not a fair comparison to compare him to Ferguson who is already established as a world class manager and is bigger than nearly any player out there so if one has bad manners he can roast him and he comes out looking good. If Rodgers was to go round doing the same the likes of Suarez would probably just say to hell with this I'll go somewhere there's Champions league football.

    What has really been so bad about his management The most recent Suarez incident has come and gone in almost a week that is a vast improvement on previous incidents and I didn't even see him in a Suarez t shirt I personally don't think he has said anything too troublesome, the only people who seem to hate him are on this site. And am I the only person who can see a real unity coming in the squad players look like they are playing for each other as opposed to themselves!!

  12. This season current team never too strong and can compete to higher level.Downing,Henderson,Skrtel, Lucas Leiva,Borini cannot meet our expectation.They just better players and not a exellent players....they cannot been push to another level.Dissapointed,frusting and let us down.They all should be ship out next with carroll and Spearing too.Lucas now look improving his performance but not so creative.LFC need to be rebuilding back but must go on roght track and wisely.We cannot depent to deadwood or any passenger who coming to complete name list team.Christian Eriksen,Henrikh Mkhitaryan,Edison Cavani,Gonzalo Higuin,Lucas Biglia,Mamadou Sakho,Matts Hummells,Andre Ters Stegen will be great addition players next season ( if we can get sign ).But plaese work hard to get our dream target players to coming and playing for LFC.We need to sign worldclass players to be back bone to the clubs.Please look to richer clubs,why they be good clubs.Example Real Madrid,they should become a bankrupcy because sign in expensive player.But now ??

  14. I want Rafa back even though rodgers has done a half decent job, i think if Rafa was given 20 mill a year and not forced to sell our best players, we would have won the pl and still be bossing the cl. The Chelsea match showed how much respect most Liverpoolt fans have for him too.

  15. Yeah lets ensure that Liverpool turns into a complete rabble and have a new manager every year!!! What a load of rubbish.

  16. Remember how you used to post after every message that you were fully behind Rogers.....That lasted long didn't it! Your a prime example of the problems with modern football fans...impatient and wanting overnight success!

  17. Interesting revisionism there, Hoq? What about the ultra defensive response from the club; the pig-headed stubbornness from KD in interviews; the stupid, unrepentant T-shirt stunt; Dalglish's 'YNWA' twitter stunt; the club (falsely) accusing Evra of making previous racism accusations in the past in its initial statement on the issue. The whole thing is a massively embarrassing incident for the club.

  18. I think it was obvious since last summer that FSG made the wrong decision by appointing him as LFC manager. There is no doubt anywhere in my mind that if we want to become title contenders a world-class manager must be appointed and especially after his last comments that top 4 will be a huge task for him! In my personal opinion that says it all. If you wish you can always watch LFC's games in full and highlights on http://www.footballwatch.net/team/37

  19. First, I didn't write the article - did you not see the name at the bottom, or the 'guest post' tag in the headline? Second, it amazes me how LFC fans think everything is so black and white. You have to either have 110% blind faith support, or total antipathy towards the manager, with nothing in between. Why can't people understand this simple concept:

    * It is perfectly possibly to support a manager whilst simultaneously being critical of certain aspects of his management style.

  20. I didn't write this article! And although I agree with it, it doesn't mean I don't support Rodgers. I still do.

  21. Apologies I didn't see that. Welcome to the new author!!

  22. I don't think people are understanding what it means to support a manager. As a fan, you are allowed to support a manager whilst having the belief they wont succeed. I hope he can prove me wrong. The point I'm impying is, it would be lousy of FSG if they held the same view, but continued on with him to reach the top 4, and then sack him after totally putting faith behind his system. I hope Rodgers can prove me wrong. He's too soft.

  23. In my view, Rodgers is doing the right thing. Our players rely heavily on morale, especially our English players. If there is someone we should get rid of, it is Suarez. Suarez may be my favourite player in the team and is probably one of the 3 best players in the world, but manure has just recorded a record points tally with what is possibly their worst team in 2 decades. We've seen that without Suarez, the team is capable of taking their game up a few gears. Are there players we can't do without? I'd put Sturridge and Lucas in that bracket, but not Suarez. As we've seen in Jamie's earlier post, Suarez doesn't make that huge a difference, plus he slows the game right down as players are obliged to feed him as opposed to being opportunistic in his absence - A few more speed demons who can shoot and we're done! A Suarez sale should be able to finance 2 of these.

    Ancelotti to me would be a regression. Rodger's project is really starting to click in a big way and while he is not ruthless, our players are. With Gerrard, Coutinho, Suso and Shelvey, possibly even Henderson capable of playing killer passes, Hendo and Sturridge certainly have the pace, industry and accuracy to maximise these passes without overplaying the ball or trying to be too fancy. Ancelotti would make us another Man City or Chelsea style team with less experience to match them. Rodgers offers something different that other teams will have serious problems contending with next season. With our January signings and the return of Lucas, the team's passing has been more purposeful and they have looked increasingly more exciting in possession.

  24. Gee mate, I thought you've been persistently following my posts to come to that conclusion!

  25. I am still a fan of Rafa I have to admit...

  26. I wouldn't describe it as easy for a new, young and relatively inexperienced Manager to come into a club like Liverpool and tell 3 players who cost us about 70 million that they can leave. The fact that he axed Skrtel after he was voted our POTY last year also seems pretty ruthless to me.
    Would you describe Wenger as ruthless?

  27. I don't think our squad has enough hard nuts either. Look at the past recent champions:
    Man utd- scholes, ferdinand, neville, keane
    man city- toure, tevez, kompany
    arsenal- vieira

    it's a common trend for teams in any football code

  28. Guest post! What is this!
    I'm wondering whether he has been like this season, just to try to not rock the boat to much, and maybe let people get comfortable with him? I think he does need to toughen up a bit, in terms of his endless praise, even when playing badly.
    I'm not in favour of a change on management just yet, I think Rodgers deserves a bit more time. We could still finish 6th, which whilst isn't great, isn't all that bad considering the teams above are very good.

  29. I'm not saying don't be critical, far from it. But this site in the last few months has become excruciatingly negative. Very rarely are positives highlighted while negatives are given your full attention....That's not critical analysis. And how about your total antipathy toward Suarez (Not justifying any of his actions) but the positive aspect of his game is never noted on this site.

  30. Carroll & co may have cost X amount but their reputations at the time and still is low. Downing and Carroll were easy scapegoats as every man and his dog saw their failures from last season as well as being a damning legacy of the KK II-Commolli's transfer policy. Carroll and Downing were very easy scapegoats for Rodgers, so barely gets any praise for me in that regard, even though nice to see Carroll the joke out but I agree, to an extent, with the Skrtel example, which was a long time coming and I credited him for doing that at the time.

  31. Urgh, those t-shirts make me cringe

  32. Sorry, that's nonsense. Any criticism will be deemed as negative if you don't agree with it. Besides, your contention that positives are 'rarely highlighted' is just totally wrong. I say lots of positive stuff about a variety of LFC issues, and I've also praised Suarez too. You're just making inaccurate generalisations. I post 3-5 articles a day, every day - I have total recall of everything I post; do you? I doubt it.

  33. since when do managers like CA and JM goto clubs with small budgets , where a slow, progressive approach is required? NEVER.

  34. I get the point about those players but I don't agree that it was easy to target them because of the following reason. All of those players were signed by our greatest legend and he knows all to well how us fans feel about KD so for him to come in and target those 3 players showed some balls imo as he must have known that some fans would accuse him of just picking on KDs signings and may cause some to turn against him. That for me is not the sign of a manager with no backbone.
    Earlier in the season, when Stevie G was having some average games, I suppose he could have dropped him and showed his ruthless side but can you imagine the reaction of most fans if he did that. He would be getting slaughtered for it so I am not sure what he needs to do to convince people that he is ruthless. And the other point is, do you need to be ruthless to win the league? That is why I threw Wengers name in there as I don't think he is ruthless but has won multiple titles.

  35. No revisionism here. My view hasnt changed and I doubt Kennys has. The whole thing is embarrasing for Liverpool only because the media took one side probably because the fa did also. I'm sure you dont want to keep going on about the same old stuff so I wont point out the flaws in Evras statements as well. As for KD's pig headedness-That is what got him the sack, Im not going to deny it, I think the job meant so much to him for many reasons that he went a bit mad to be honest. So he gave those interviews and played People who should have been dropped out of position. Take away the stubbornness and you got a manager who wouldnt have been sacked.

  36. Haha! Sorry I barely even keep track of what I'm posting on here, just random musings while enjoying a cup of tea.

  37. Nooooo. You don't win league titles without consistency and you don't become consistent by replacing your manager every year. That's not to say Ancelloti could not have an immediate impact, he did so at Chelski and now PSG, but we also have to be fair and admit that he would not get the funds he got at those two clubs. As a matter of fact, for the money that's been spent at PSG, they're not that convincing imo. Our inconsistency is not because of Rodgers praising his players. We were inconsistent under Benitez too and he hardly ever praised anyone. We were inconsistent under Houllier, Evans and Dalglish. We are inconsistent because we never had a manager who could instill the type of mentality you need to consistently get results. How else can a team with DeGea in goal, Carrick +1 in midfield, Rafael and Evra on fullback and Rio in the center comfortably win the league? All no poor players but ability wise no better than Reina, Gerrard +1, Enrique, Johnson and Agger. Rodgers has done a good job so far imo and he will need to build on it and have us become more consistent. Which we have done since the January window. I trust that he can build on that and if nothing else, he needs the chance to give it a go. The players we have will also benefit form having the same manager in front of them rather than another new guy with, once again, new ideas.

    We have excellent young players coming up like sterling, ibe, texeira, wisdom etc. I think only one man can guide them to the first team football i.e. RODGERS so he should be given time at least 2 seasons..
    and we should accept that we are not a top team any more. Our owners wont splash big cash. Rebuilding will take its time and rodgers is the right man to get us forward.

  39. Hi, I normally read the posts but don't comment, I'm with Simon in that I believe Rogers is on the right track. I don't want to see Liverpool becoming like Chelsea changing the manager every year because things haven't gone 100% to plan... Also I too would be haappy for Suarez to leave, really can't stand having the club dragged through the mud.

  40. Ha, now I know how it feels to be Jaimie after I post an article....

  41. But what do you expect? For him to say yeah Allen is shite, Borini is useless and Assaidi and Sahin were big mistakes? I think the fact that he's dropped all of them in favour of players who do perform says all that needs to be said. Rodgers is the manager, not just some random guy in the pub. His actions speak louder than words. Players who do not perform are dropped. Downing got the message, Henderson got the message and if the players he brought in do not, they will be out the door soon enough. Just like Cole and Sahin.

  42. I don't agree with your reasoning that it was difficult to target those players on the basis of KK II's status, as it was and still is obvious to all how most of the players signed during his/Comolli's reign were a shambles. I don't agree with that line of defence at all as well as the Stevie G one either, I don't see much merit in it, not even a little bit but I guess it comes down to perception and spin, so fair enough.

    You don't need to be ruthless if you have the quality of players to back it up. Wenger did have genuine top class quality when he won those titles, so your line of questioning is questionable in that regard

    Easy not to be ruthless when you have quality.

    Easy to be ruthless with easy scapegoats.

  43. I think BR deserves some credit in making substitutions early eg against Chelsea when Sturridge came on at halftime. Contrat this with Raf & KD, with 70-75min substitutions. I think BR is ruthless, he's dropped Sturridge, Skrtel & dumped Carroll against popular opinion! Perhaps when the depth & quality improves the need to overly praise the better footballers may diminish, at present there's such a huge disparity in quality he needs to keep the good ones on his side!

  44. I don't think BR believed that it was going to endear him to a lot of fans by basically saying that your greatest legend just wasted a huge amount in the transfer market. If you look back at posts in previous articles you can see the reaction from some fans when the point has been raised about the money wasted. That is why I think it is a bit off the mark to say that it was easy to target them. You disagree about the Stevie G comment but what does BR have to do to show he is ruthless? You state that you don't need to be ruthless if you have the quality of players but the article is making the point that Ferguson is ruthless and this is a big part of their success so are you saying that UTD don't have quality players? That one doesn't make much sense to me.

  45. I don't know what 'BR' believed and what he doesn't. But it was obvious to a lot, the general public, media, that one of the downfalls of KK II's reign was his wasted money, as well as Comolli. A lot of fans respect KK as a legend but that doesn't mean they didn't dislike some of the things he did in his second reign, one was the transfers. Not hard at all, to separate the legend and his second reign. It was quite a easy to thing to do, what Rodgers did in relation to Carroll and Henderson. Yes, there are some fans out there that defend KK II/Comolli's transfer policy, etc but that doesn't change the overall perception out there in the mainstream. At least most of what you have said is subjective (and the same goes on my end probably) and I disagree with most of it. He has picked on mostly easy scapegoats to date, in my view and so I'll leave it there in relation to this part, as this is a subjective roundabout that is getting repetitive now.

    Rodgers, to date, is barely ruthless when it comes to players higher up the food chain, as he has simply picked on mostly easy scapegoats. He showed some ruthlessness with Skrtel, which is fair enough but would like to have seen him do the same with Agger, who has been as worse, if not more. But in Rodger's defence, we are short in central defence and generally, our midfield hasn't been great, so I would have been cautious about going after both first XI CBs and experienced Gerrard, as he needed them badly. So to conclude, in my view, he has been ruthless to easy scapegoats mostly and hasn't been ruthless to more players higher up the food chain who have been poor at times or for long periods but in some ways, one has to be cautious in being ruthless to these higher status players when the quality of the squad, the form of the team and the period this club is in is like it is. I don't want him to be ruthless for the sake of being ruthless but he has barely been bravely ruthless. That concludes my view on that.

    I said 'you don't NEED to be ruthless if you have the quality players'. I haven't said anywhere in that quote or my posts to date that you shouldn't be ruthless full stop if you have quality players or that if you are ruthless, that means you don't have quality players. So doesn't make much sense to me that attempt to read between my lines.

  46. Mike Aitcheson2:43 pm, May 03, 2013

    Again, how do you or any of us know how Rodgers deals with his players privately or at the training ground? You have no real evidence that he 'constantly fawns' over his senior players except in the media.
    I would like Rodgers to tone down his praise; to give the lavishing of praise when it comes more meaning. To constantly use the word *outstanding* diminishes the word's meaning when it is used. Your so called 'evidence' of his servitude has the fatal flaw of being reliant on public utterances to enable you to come to the conclusion that you arrive at- a reasoned one, I grant you, but based upon insufficient evidence in my view ie Rodger's public statements in the main.

  47. Why don't you explain why Rodgers' private discussions with players matter? If - as you and others seem to intimate - he's sterner on the players in private, where is the evidence that this has made any difference to the club this season?

    Given his cloying reverence for the players, I sincerely doubt it's probable that he is a Jekyll and Hyde type character, i.e. servile and sycophantic in public, and a hardass in private.

    It's more likely that he is the same in private with the players. He's a new, young manager with n o top flight experience, no trophies, no pull, and no mystique. He's at one of the biggest clubs in the world, working with player who have infinitely more experience and prestige than him. These players are more important than him, so he probably feels subconsciously inferior, so overcompensates with gross praise in a bid to keep these massive egos onside.

    This is far more probable than the Jekyll and Hyde scenario.

  48. I don't agree with your comment about fans easily separating themselves and being subjective in regards to KD. A lot of fans have been criticising BR for the same mistakes that KD made but when those mistakes are pointed out to a lot of fans, they simply refuse to accept it because of KDs history but are more than happy to criticise BR. It is kind of a case of 'Love is blind' and I get that, as we all love him but you can't be blind to his mistakes.
    You make the reference to players higher up the food chain but were Agger and Reina not droped for a few games also? How high up the chain does he need to go before people think he is ruthless enough to lead a large club to glory? That is why I made the Gerrard reference. Does he need to drop him to prove his ruthlessness as he is the highest in the chain?
    In regards to your last paragraph: look at the last 2 lines in your post. That was a statement from you so how am I reading betwen the lines? I made a direct reference to what you posted.

  49. Mr. Point Of View3:53 pm, May 03, 2013

    i dont think many manager can get job done in short time with little option in squad. For me, either BR is good or bad i willing give him 1 more season to go. He build his foundation and no more excuses for next year IF FAILED ! as a LFC fans i beg give ur manager 1 more run, keep sacking mgr we are goin no where bcoz manager keep overhaul the squad is a very bad in term of financial and morale.

  50. Mr. Point Of View3:57 pm, May 03, 2013

    adding : for those fans whom still living in a fantasy world keep want top class manager coming in is a dream. I believe we are in a position which mgr will think triple b4 coming here...practically we are screwed REPO by those previous and current owner...i think freedom for mgr buy and selling is important...of coz within budget given...

  51. One thing I will say about his defending of Suarez after the biting incident.

    He didn't defend Suarez for his actions. He defended Suarez for the length of ban.

    One is indefensible (biting).

    The other one (length of ban) is a matter of opinion, especially since the FA said it did NOT take into account Suarez's prior history, and since similar incidents have not been punished nearly as severely.

    I personally did not have an issue with the ban, provided that's the rule moving forward. But I also can't say that I disagree with Rodgers' view on the length of the ban considering past infractions of similar ilk.

  52. "Would Rodgers have the balls to kick Gerrard, Suarez, Reina or Agger out of the club like Fergie did with Beckham, Stam, Keane et al? I sincerely doubt it."

    This is a pretty lame analogy Jaimie. Fergie had been in charge of United for nearly two decades before he made these high profile dismissals. I couldn't even imagine how hated Rodgers would be by the entire Liverpool fan base is he kicked out Agger, Suarez, or Gerrard. Totally different scenarios which in no way you can make a comparison between.

    And if Fergie is so "ruthless" how do you explain the Wayne Rooney saga? Rooney throws a temper tantrum, afterwards getting a new improved contact and constant praise from Fergie. Sounds a little soft to me.

  53. That's certainly one way to look at it. it's nice to see him admit his mistakes.

    The problem I have is that he seems to misread it at the beginning with the starting lineup, which is what causes him to make the substitution so quickly.

    But I think you make a valid point. Other managers would stubbornly stick with their lineups. BR at least will admit he's wrong quickly and try to improve.

  54. Only argument I'll say is that if Rodgers says that everything is "outstanding", then by default, nothing is outstanding. Since nothing stands out from anything else.

    That's devil's advocate.

    I, for one, do agree with your sentiment that he goes overboard too often.

  55. Define a small budget. If you're comparing our spending to Chelsea and Man City, then yes, we have a small budget, but who doesn't compared to those two?

    But since FSG has come in, they've spent the third or fourth most in the league. @Mike Aitcheson broke it all down very clearly in a previous post a few weeks ago.

  56. We do have Lucas and Suarez. But I agree, we need someone who other players will not mess with when they see him.

  57. I'll say what I have to say before I read the rest of the comments so, if I'm repeating what other(s) have said: so be it.

    Sacking Rodgers after this season would be, like the thread's main topic, idiotic! Saying he's too soft is pathetic - ask Coutinho, who was substituted at half time against Chelsea, or Sturridge, who was dropped after the Reading & Southampton games, or Skrtel, who was dropped after Oldham.

    As for his man management skills: he is spot on!

    With the lack of proven Premier League experience and trophies won, he has to get his players playing for him and Liverpool Football Club. After the relatively quick turnaround of managers over the past few years, any manager who went into our dressing room like a bull in a china shop would quickly lose the faith of the players and, therefore, their tenure. Making comparisons with Ferguson is a bit childish as he's been in management since 1974 (Brendan was 18 months old!) and is a renowned figure in the world of football management who has (painfully) won everything at club level. If he says the player goes, then the player goes.

    Brendan is building a supportive rapport with his players and they are playing some amazing football on the pitch. Consistency has been lacking but it's been lacking for some time - i.e. 20+ years.
    We need a bit more strength & guile in the middle and a barnstorming centre half and we'll have a title challenging side. If we change managers now we're going to go backwards as we do not have the money to compete with the Sheik or Russian.

    What I would suggest it to stop spitting the dummy and be patient with Brendan. I see what he's doing. I know what he & FSG want to achieve. It WILL happen, they just need time.

  58. wtf you doing back thought i had got rid of you for good;-)

  59. I don't necessarily think he needs to be "Jekyll and Hyde".

    I think it's more along the lines of simply being sterner.

    For instance, he is over the top with praise in the media. But behind closed doors he doesn't praise anyone. That's Jekyll and Hyde to me.

    But on the other hand, he can be over the top in the media, but behind closed doors, he can hold players more accountable... none more obvious than those he benches.

  60. I would choose neither for reasons already given (short term fix - management style doesn't breed champions).
    In recent times, there haven't been any other managers who have transformed their teams more than Rafa and Mourinho. From the youth team to the senior squad these two built teams in their image and while jose was fergies biggest challenger for the league rafa built a team that knew how to achieve greatness in cup competitions.
    Now I am not saying get either of them because I think they're not the solution we want. What we do want is what they were when they first were signed by Chelsea and ourselves respectively, young managers who have proved themselves in their domestics leagues and in Europe but dont have the financial backing they would like. Klopp rings all the bells but he's like mourinho was in 2004 with all his recent success and we're most likely to miss out on him if we made an approach to a "bigger" club.
    Like in 2004 I couldnt tell you where the next Benitez is currently but that's who I would be focusing my time on looking out for. At the time most fans weren't sure who he was, but LFC had done their homework and it paid off and I would emplore them to do use the same due diligence again. For now BR is doing a good job and I can't fault him for much other than his management style might prove to be his own barrier to major success.
    Then again, maybe he's right under our noses and a year or two from now we might be calling Sami Hyypia our new manager.

  61. I've moved. Had no internet for a while. Thought that you had missed me :-)

  62. You show me a Liverpool team which has played better football under Rodgers besides the teams under Roy Evans?

    Chelsea under Rafa looked average when we drew 2-2. If it was not for Suarez's handball and making the mistake by not starting with Sturridge then Rafa's team would have been murdered.

    Chelsea have become the same old cautious team that Liverpool were under Benitez. Rafa took over a Chelsea squad that was 4 points behind Man City in the EPL and look how far they are from the top now. What a joke.

    We want to talk about Rodgers and his management style? There is nothing worse than Rafa's management style of the chain around the neck welded to a pole. No thanks to another manager like Rafael Benitez. The excuses will end up driving me to my grave!

  63. It's been 1 year. 1 year! I didn't like the choice of BR over Pep G., but hey, I don't own the team. But still, when you hire someone, you really should give them a chance to be successful. Unless its a colossal flop from the start and you have to act to stop the bleeding (The brief Roy era, for example, and even that if we are being fair...)

    Ok, let's really look at this season with a little hindsight that we didn't have at the beginning of the season when we were expecting top 4.

    1.) BR was a really late hiring. There was a long pause between King Kenny departing and Brendan taking over. As a result, a lot and I mean a LOT of decent signings were going elsewhere. The well was pretty dry when he got there. And then,

    2.) He didn't have a scouting unit until well after the summer window ended. So he had a style he wanted to implement, had some players in his mind (who in fairness did disappoint), and no time to truly evaluate team strengths, a weak talent pool to try to improve the team with, and no one to really help him with that. FSG gets the blame on that one.

    3.) Injuries. Did anyone really see Lucas going out that long, yeah Agger and Skrtel being injured at some point was probably a foregone conclusion, but Borini coming in and getting injured wasn't really something that was all that predictable. Allen getting injured, etc. etc.

    4.) Budgets getting blown. Andy Carroll being signed by Kenny for an outrageous sum and killing the future transfer budgets, not on BR. It's why he really could only sign Coutino and Sturridge at the Winter window, and when he had a decent staff to scout players and evaluate personnel, the picks did turn out well.

    Look, I hate the way he praises players when they do wrong, the covering up and kissing arse. I do, that's management style though, and if it works for him, so be it. I care about numbers. And improving numbers work for me. Last year we finished 8th. Win or tie with Everton, we're already guaranteed 7th. It's slow progress, but it's progress. I would much rather we were in 4th or higher, hell I want us in 1st. But let's be honest, we were never going to be top 4 this season. Never. But we are improving.

    If you bring in someone new, you're talking a new style, rebuilding AGAIN, new players, new scouting, new coaching. You're setting yourself back another year, again. No one can turn around a club completely in essentially a half a season, when they've been hamstrung at the start.

    I want to see what BR does in the summer with transfers, and how the start of the next season goes. None of this "possibility of relegation" crap at the start of the season again, improvement is what matters. None of this drawing against crap teams because we can't put up goals. Improvement is again needed. Defense, the thing I've been yapping about upgrading all season long needs improvement, and if you can do that over the summer and before the winter window next season, then we can compete for top 4. But he needs a chance to do that.

    And if someone else comes in now, it's back to square 1. I'm sick of square 1. If someone else comes in now, you'll have gone through Rafa, Roy, Kenny and Brendan in 4 seasons. What kind of manager is going to come in knowing that he's most likely gone at the end of the next season? We might as well be Chelski at that point.

    So no, keep BR on. But he's got to improve and do so right from the start of the season. After season 2 though, if there's no improvement all bets are off.

  64. missed you not at all about as much as the clap;-)

  65. your like a bad penny lol

  66. im 100% behind rogers his backtracking on europe is priceless ...hell say well thrash the blue sh*te and if they beat us say he was joking lol

  67. the results lol

  68. anyway Jc why dont you write a post '' what i know about football '' it would make a great sentence lol

  69. Good to see you back, anteater :-)

  70. Thank you, Sir!

  71. It has so clearly been a season of transition that I think the only fair thing is to continue with Rodgers. I'm not wholly convinced myself, but I think he has earned our backing (even if it has an underlying scepticism, which is healthy).

    People seem convinced Ancelotti will leave, but I'm not so sure. Carlo has basically sewn up the league in France and was only knocked out by Barca, which isn't a travesty of any sort.

    Unless Mourinho aggressively pursues the PSG job, or we could have the bizarre scenario whereby PSG and Real swap managers, with Ancelotti going over to Real, I can't see PSG making a change. It is just speculation at this point.

    I think Mourinho will go to Chelsea. Ironically I am largely basing this theory on speculation too, but watching football in this age, you basically become a bullshit prognosticator, trying to work out which way the wind is blowing as it gusts out of the collective arsehole of the 24 hr. media.

    The funny thing is that both clubs want to win the European Cup and both have two of the best for doing that (they've both won it twice) but seem to fancy the other bloke to do it for them.

    I think Chelsea really dropped the ball when they sacked Carlo, because I felt he could have established them as a consistent and stable force. He even made them a likeable and attractive side to watch.

    I'd be happy to see him represent Liverpool. I understand the feeling is mutual. One thing that often goes under the radar is that Ancelotti is only 53. He has another 20 years in management before he is Fergie's age. He has already won as many European Cups and won 3 league titles in 3 different countries (presuming he doesn't balls up PSG's 9 point lead).

  72. Agree with most of what you said.

    Only thing to keep in mind: We didn't necessarily choose Brendan over Pep. I never got the impression Pep was coming here.

  73. In regards, to your comment about 'a lot of fans.....KD', like I said or I'm implied, I'm done with that part of that debate, so I won't counter that fallible point, with all due respect.

    Being just dropped for a few games, doesn't amount to the same treatment as Downing, Carroll and the youngsters in the domestic cups got from Rodgers, in relation to media comments and the length of dropping. They weren't dropped in the same manner, not by a long shot.

    In relation to your repetitive question in regards to whether Rodgers needs to be ruthless: like I said or imply, I don't care for being ruthless for the sake of being ruthless.

    You said 'so are you saying that UTD don't have quality players?', so yes, from where I'm standing, you did try to read between the lines and tried to somehow extend my logic from my initial Wenger comment in some warped manner. You made a reference to what I said and the analogy question you concocted about Ferguson isn't implied in that reference, so therefore you tried to incorrectly read between the lines, in my view. I'll reiterate it again, I did not say or imply that Ferguson logic/analogy of yours anywhere and the reference of mine you talk about, nowhere does that. You tried to add 1 + 1 but didn't quite get 2. You are basically trying to sensationalise/exaggerate my logic with that Ferguson analogy. My comment doesn't explicitly or heavily imply that one shouldn't be ruthless if you have quality or that one must be ruthless if they don't have quality. You tried to extend my comment or the logic of it to an extent which I didn't go into, with that premature and silly Ferguson analogy.

    Anyhoo, I am done as it is getting all rather tedious and boring as both are trying to counter with subjective repetitive musings, rather than anything very interesting or factual now. So to conclude, both made our points and agree to disagree.

  74. Aye, its been a while!

    Welcome back

  75. I think Rodgers is in a difficult position because he has come to a huge club with little to no success behind him for instant respect. If he came in and very strict with the players i think they wouldve never liked him to start with, like hodgson. Furthermore some players are almost undroppable: gerrard and suarez are clearly bigger than the club at the moment, most likely due to such poor leadership (young inexperienced manager, no footballing expertise in higher positions). Add to this the quality of the squad and it becomes impossible to be "ruthless", drop agger for whom? drop suarez for whom? (before sturridge)

    However i totally agree that a top manager must be "ruthless" and the players should fear him. Rodgers seems to be desperate to be buddies with the top players. I have a feeling that with higher expectations next year, rodgers attitude will change.. It has to!

  76. jaimie why was my post to anteater deleted it was just a bit of fun hence the;-)

  77. if i write a post it could cause the internet to melt down and do you really think jaimie would let mine go live ,

  78. On one side, if rodgers showers praise on his players, he also shows them the way out of the club if they don't perform or are unable to mould into his playing style like cole, carrol, aqualani and next will be skertel..

  79. Cheers, and thanks. Had already feared that only those two special friends of mine remembered me.

  80. It will be so stupid to let Rodgers go. We would then just be the same plastic team as Chelsea. We are loyal. Rodgers has done great his first year. He will do better next year. You are blind if you can't see that.
    He is only 39. He is our future. You are so negative Jamie. You would fit right in at Chelsea.

  81. You missed all the Suarez drama ;)

  82. Well, I missed the drama on here, if there was any, about the latest Suarez incident. And I actually missed the bite whilst watching the game. After hearing about the 10 game ban I searched for it on the web. 10 games for that? I don't want to defend it, but I have seen much worse things on a football pitch, going entirely unpunished. The FA know fa.

  83. I disagree the club needs stability over all else wake up and smell the coffee it is not a side laden with superstars it is a team with a lot of promise thats all.
    What Rodgers says in public about players in no way means that behind closed doors he is not sticking pins in their head.
    Ask your self this would Ancellotti have played the younger players this season like Rodgers no is he the man to develop a team no and would the side have made the CL with him no.
    So all in all another big change for nothing like running on a treadmill i dont care whether or not people like Rodgers sticking with him is the sensible option.

  84. Fair comment , but BR is new to managing a big team and he's doing ok not great but ok . The fear thing will come I think , i hope . He must become more ruthless , we do seem to take defeat to lightly , that has to change or we will change the manager . My opinion is we will know for defo this time next year . Lets hope he becomes better than ok .

  85. Well the argument wasn’t whether the new Rafa will bring a better brand of football to the club but that they would bring a winning mentality, and with that, a better chance for silverware and longevity in success. Ask Arsenal fans how they have enjoyed the last 7 going on 8 years of watching some of the best played football in the world without any success. Benitez's Liverpool team played every unattractive football....but they won and that is all that matters. I do not want to end up watching "great football" and winning nothing for the next 7 years and while Benitez shows once again his inability to build a team that can challenge for the league, Chelsea fans can look forward to a second successive European final. Finding a way to win is something our team has missed since Benitez left and I don't think there's too much room to argue there. We all remember countless times our team would be tied or down with 10mins to go in a game but we knew that there was a 95% chance we would win the game and we did more often than not. The team today gives away leads and loses games they should be easily winning. And while this obviously happens to teams every now and then, it's happening to us more often than it should. If BR can instill that winning mentality into the boy we'll be a force to be reckoned with. If not, we'll continue to rot in mid-table mediocrity. From what he has shown in his interviews overall he doesn't seem to have that, but I would love for him to prove me wrong and for the boys to really impress next season!

    Rodgers keen to keep Coutinho grounded

    Agen Bola indo11.com reported, Liverpool boss
    Brendan Rodgers has warned against putting too much pressure on Philippe
    Coutinho, after his fine start to life at the club.

    The playmaker signed at Anfield from Inter in January
    and has racked up five assists, as well as two goals, in his 10 games for the
    Merseyside club.

    Coutinho laid on two of his side’s six goals at
    Newcastle at the weekend and Rodgers was delighted at the entire team’s
    performance, but warned against putting too much faith into the 20-year-old too
    soon into his time at the club.

    He told the club’s official website: “We build up
    players in the country and put them on a pedestal and then quickly nail them

    “He’s had an outstanding performance and people can
    see why we brought him in. He’s 20 years of age and fits the culture of what
    we’re trying to do here.

    “He’s technically strong and he’s a very humble boy.
    He works hard, you can see the effort in his game, the pressure, the intensity,
    so he fits in really well, but there’s a long way to go.

    “If you look at the stats you’ll see I haven’t eased
    him in gently. He’s played nearly every game.” as reported by Indo Eleven.

    Inggris impian striker muda Italia

    terbaru dan terkini Bola Soccer dari Agen Bola Indo11 - Kesempatan bermain
    menjadi salah satu alasan Samuele Longo meninggalkan Inter Milan. Dia sepakat
    bergabung dengan klub promosi Serie-A, Hellas Verona, dengan status pinjaman

    Berita yang dirampung oleh Agen Bola Indo11, ini bukan pertama kali Longo
    dititipkan ke klub lain. Musim lalu, pemain berusia berusia 21 tahun tersebut
    menghabiskan karirnya bersama Espanyol.

    "Inter tahu, seperti Francesco Bardi
    (yang dipinjamkan ke Livorno), aku pun memilih dipinjamkan dan bermain dengan
    klub lain," papar Longo.

    Longo tidak menutup kemungkinan untuk kembali
    ke Inter musim depan. Akan tetapi, dia mengaku memendam hasrat untuk mencicipi
    aroma kompetisi di Inggris.

    "Tetapi siapa yang tahu hari esok? Aku
    senang bisa kembali ke Nerazzurri, tetapi tidak menutup kemungkinan bermain di
    luar Italia. Aku bermimpi main di Inggris. Aku sangat tertarik dengan Premier
    League dan aku merasa memiliki karakter yang cocok dengan kompetisi di
    sana," tutup pemegang delapan caps bersama tim U-21 Italia tersebut.

    siap menjadi andalan Citizens

    Berita terbaru dan terkini Bola Soccer dari Agen
    Bola Indo11 - Usai melewati musim yang berat, Samir Nasri menyebut dirinya
    sudah semakin dewasa. Gelandang Manchester City itu pun kini siap menjadi
    andalan Manuel Pellegrini.

    Berita yang dirampung oleh Agen Bola Indo11,
    Nasri sempat menjadi sorotan setelah tindakan kontroversialnya di Piala Eropa
    2012 lalu. Setelahnya, penampilan gelandang 26 tahun itu bersama City di Liga
    Primer Inggris musim 2012/2013 juga inkonsisten dengan hanya membukukan dua gol
    dari 28 kali penampilan.

    Akibatnya, Nasri menjadi sasaran kritik. Namun setelah melewati semuanya,
    pesepakbola asal Prancis itu kini mengaku dirinya sudah lebih matang.

    "Aku tahu bahwa aku akan berada dalam sorotan di musim ini, tapi aku
    terbiasa dengan itu. Sejak aku berumur 17 tahun, aku hidup dengan tekanan. Hari
    ini, aku sudah lebih matang. Insiden di Euro, fakta bahwa aku harus menutup
    diri dari dunia luar, itu bukan aku. Aku berkomunikasi, bicara, menikmati
    hidup, terus tersenyum. Aku sedikit kehilangan diriku musim lalu, aku sudah
    menemukan jati diriku musim ini, yang mana itu luar biasa." ungkap Nasri.

    Musim ini di bawah arahan Pellegrini, Nasri memulai dengan baik. Di laga
    perdana City di liga melawan Newcastle United, Nasri mencetak satu dari empat
    gol kemenangan The Citizens.

    "Aku tahu pelatih punya kepercayaan padaku. Aku datang, aku menunjukkan
    bahwa Anda akan mengandalkanku musim ini. Aku tidak takut dengan kompetisi
    untuk tempat utama, itu membuatkau lebih baik. Aku punya keinginan besar musim
    ini. Aku ingin tampil di Piala Dunia, menunjukkan kepada semua orang Samir
    Nasri yang sebenarnya. Aku sudah berlatih untuk itu di sepanjang pramusim. Aku
    merasa lebih baik," katanya.

    mendapatkan posisi ketiga dan mempertahankannya sampai akhir balapan.

    "Balapannya sangat berat. Bradl selalu dekat di belakang saya dan akhirnya
    saya bersaing dengan Bautista, yang juga sangat cepat, dia menyalip saya dan
    sempat memperlebar jarak. Saya berusaha keras di lap terakhir karena saya ingin
    naik ke atas podium," kata Rossi.

    Ini adalah kelima kalinya Rossi naik podium di musim 2013 dan merupakan podium

    Berita olahraga terkini dari Agen Judi terbaik indo11.com, hasil positif tidak mampu diraih oleh Belanda, saat hanya bermain imbang 0-0 menghadapi Kolumbia, pada laga uji coba di Amsterdam Arena (20/11).

    Mayoritas pemain muda di pertandingan ini diturunkan Belanda guna mempersiapkan tim untuk Piala Dunia 2014 mendatang. Ketiadaan nama-nama besar di lini serang sedikit menyulitkan tim tuan rumah.

    Kolumbia yang unggul jumlah pemain di babak kedua mulai menunjukkan dominasinya atas tuan rumah. Upaya Radamel Falcao di menit-47 masih diselamatkan Jasper Cillessen, menyusul sontekan Juan Cuadrado yang masih lemah di menit ke-54.

    Berita yang dirangkum oleh Agen Bola online terpercaya indo11.com, di babak kedua Macnelly Torres masuk, turut memberikan ancaman bagi tuan rumah Belanda, lewat dua upaya beruntun melalui tendangan jarak jauh. Setelah dua menit kemudian Memphis Depay berusaha membalas, namun kembali gagal.

    Jelang pertandingan berakhir, Belanda maupun Kolumbia sama-sama gagal memaksimalkan peluang mereka untuk mencetak gol dan hingga usainya laga, kedudukan sama kuat tidak berubah.

    Meski begitu, Benitez yang kini menangani Napoli meyatakan bahwa karirnya bersama The Blues bisa dikatakan sukses. Parameternya adalah ia mampu mencapai target yang dibebankan klub sejak awal.

    Berita yang dirangkum oleh Agen Bola online terpercaya indo11.com, Benitez mengungkapkan bahwa ia berhasil megantar Chelsea menang Liga Eropa dan finish di posisi ketiga, itu adalah dua target utama yang diberikan di awal kedatangannya. Masa-masa melatih Chelsea terasa sangat menarik baginya, para pemain benar-benar menyatu dan bekerja keras. Atmosfer dalam tim jauh lebih baik dari apa yang diberitakan oleh media.
