Why Rogers is a god damn moron
“Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers has said he’s pleased he ended in rejecting Tottenham when at Swansea:
They are a great club and one of the things I looked at was the history. They’d 11 managers in 18 years. I needed to create something; I needed to go to club that was going to give that opportunity.They have had a good couple of years, they were up there under Harry Redknapp.I am more than happy with the choice I made to come here and hopefully in time it will prove to be the right one.”
which is EXTREMELY interesting because Rogers joined liverpool on June 1st….SIXTEEN DAYS BEFORE REDKNAPP WAS SACKED
god damn that is hilariously stupid on his part hahaha
everyone just wants to act like theyre big shit. Laudrup & Hughton are like ‘nah we wont leave our clubs, dont worry’ yeah because we arent interested in hiring you, you fuckin idiots.
Sherwood yet to declare Spurs interest
Caretaker boss Tim Sherwood says he is yet to declare if he wants to be considered for the permanent role at Tottenham.
as of 5 minutes ago: “I’ve got to be in the frame, but it’s not my decision, unfortunately. I’m up for a challenge. I always have been. I’m very opinionated.” -Sherwood.
I want Capello
Jacob wants de Boer
Samuel wants Bielsa
Watch us all be wrong
ayy i dont only want de boer, i just think he makes the most sense & is like 1/6th the price of capello -jake
I want Capello
Jacob wants de Boer
Samuel wants Bielsa
Watch us all be wrong
ok analysis of managerial candidates
Before I start it off, I need to say that when it comes to making decisions about managers, it’s currently a 4 person discussion with Levy, Sherwood, Baldini and Lewis.
Currently: Sherwood at interim. Now, Sherwood gets a lot of slack because he tends to be a ladder climbing kinda dude. However, he has a LOT of power at the club for a reason, and you cant knock what he’s done in the past. If there was 1 dude at the club who could be our perfect manager, it’d be Sherwood. The academy kids love him, he gets the results, and he fucking pisses lilywhite. AVB hated him because he (AVB) wanted to be the ultimate managerial authority, but that I guess shows how intense Sherwood is. I think keeping him with Parks & Freund will be even better. Parks is one of the best in the game. He’s the guy who does the assessment for badges and assesses the assessors even haha. Plus, Freund is always good to have around simply because he’s so cheery. Ferdinand and Ramsey are both very talented coordinators as well. Basically, under the interim staff (which could be around until the end of the season) we’d most likely play a fluid 433 that centers around our midfielders basically throwing the ball up field to our striker. Ade might play a bit more under Sherwood too, as he likes the hold up play…Ade might play under all the candidates though, honestly.
Capello- Baldini would cry tears of joy, and you just know that Baldini is pushing HARD for Capello. Capello gets a lot of slack for his time with England, but England is HORRID anyway and the media/fans have way too high expectations for them haha so ignore that. Club record is spotless. Especially with Baldini. Personally, I’d love him at the club, as he’s a proven champion. However, high chance we cant get him until AFTER the world cup, which would mean Sherwood would stay all season long. He’s a very strict manager. Very rigid, but very well respected. Players will put in the shifts for him. Tactically he’s really dynamic. He could take basically any formation and succeed with it, which is good. Not boring by any means, but he likes to have an emphasis on defense. Balanced teams basically, so we lose ONLY SLIGHTLY in flair and attacking, but we have a very strong D & we’ll still get the goals.
Bielsa- only putting him on here because Sam likes him, and he’s linked….but Levy has war flash backs whenever he thinks about bringing in average Spanish managers. Not gonna bother analyzing him…he’s not our guy haha
Hiddink- dude rocks. Cant knock his success. I would be pleased with him but he’s probably 3rd or 4th on my list. Uh… i dunno. Premier league experience & has proven he can work with just about nothing. Has the tax fraud history to potentially be the rightful heir to Redknapps soggy throne. Attacking, has an eye for superstar names, and uh???? Yeah. Would be good, but I doubt he’s an option.
Laudrup- Not happening. Swansea were booed off last week. Basically an AVB carbon copy. Not happening.
Spalletti- incredible manager with Roma. Took all the attitudes and egos at Zenit and has been managing them well…which is important right now. Really well respected. Plays a good 4231/433/etc attacking style. Would utilize Soldado and Paulinho especially well. Has proven he could work with not a lot, and be successful.. would be a good choice.
De Boer - HELL YEAH!!!!!!! #1 choice for me. History with Eriksen and Jan. Already +10 for him. Loves his attacking football. Has a good defensive set up, which doesn’t take away from the teams attacking flair. Has a 60% win rate with Ajax. Dude is just dope. Ajax aren’t in the CL anymore, so I think there’s a chance we could get him right now…however, more likely he’d be another summer appointment.
Lets go over a thing
Last year, Levy sacked Redknapp and wanted AVB. Reiterating: LEVY WANTED AVB. Our OWNER Joe Lewis was unsure, as AVB was just sacked by Chelsea. However, they sat down, vetted him thoroughly, and came to the conclusion that AVB was the best choice at the time. We gave him the year with the squad he had, with Levy choosing who we purchase (Ie: dempsey & dembele - holtby was ALL Freund), and should we do well enough he could have his own targets. We finished the season, beating ManU at Old Trafford along the way, and Levy decided AVB was the right man. However, Barcelona AND Real Madrid had managerial vacancies, and AVB was on top of their lists. Desperate to keep AVB, Levy brought in Franco Baldini as director of football, a man who AVB had wanted from day one, as a means to appease AVB. AVB still wanted to move on to ‘greener pastures’ at the top of La Liga, and everyone at the club knew. Lamela was a Baldini purchase, Eriksen a Sherwood, Capoue and Vlad were Levy, and Soldado & Paulinho were AVB. So you can see who has a say at the top of the club. All the players knew AVB wanted to leave, and as you can see from our performances and desire to win, they were pretty pissed. You dont play your heart out for a manager you dont respect, who you think doesnt want to be there….unless you’re holtby and you play your heart out every single game because you love football so damn much (#HOLTBY FOR SPURS MANAGER!). So from day 1 of the season, Levy & AVB were in a riff. AVB hasnt been getting results, he tried to leave at the end of the season, and after this THIRD EMBARRASSING THRASHING THIS SEASON, Levy said ‘aiight you’re out’ (paraphrasing). It was through mutual consent, as AVB obviously wanted to go.
Ok so, its sad. We loved AVB. He did us so proud last season. He knew what to say, and he got the best out of some of our players. However, we didn’t play his system, we couldn’t play his system, and he made lots of mistakes when he was so determined to play a highline with a 433 and the blablabla. It was NEVER going to work if he kept pushing it. Thank you for your time. It was a great season last year. Disappointing in the end, shitty as hell this year, but you were great and I hope you do well in your career.
LOOKING FORWARD: Hiddink? Capello? De Boer? Sherwood or Hoddle? Ledley Fuckin King? Could be literally anyone. I have no clue.
BUT YOU BETTER THROW YOUR FULL THROATED SUPPORT BEHIND WHOEVER TAKES OVER THE MANAGERIAL POSITION. I DONT CARE IF YOU HATE THE GUY WITH A PASSION. I DONT CARE IF ITS KENNY DALGLISH, ARSENE WENGER, OR ROMAN ABRAMOVICH HIMSELF. YOU SUPPORT HIM WITH EVERYTHING YOUVE GOT. SHOW THE PLAYERS WE LOVE THE CLUB AND THE BADGE, AND THAT WE ARE GOING TO SUPPORT THEM NO MATTER WHAT
Half-Time Analysis v Liverpool (H) - Premier League
Shit been awhile since I’ve done one of these.
- Ball retention is our biggest concern going forward. We’ve put in Chadli, Paulinho, Dembele, Capoue all to be physical threats, but they haven’t been at all, no muscling anyone off, and that goes especially for when we’re going forward. Need to keep the ball, starve them, make them tire themselves out trying to get it. Right now they’re just dominating us.
- Our defence is our biggest problem at the moment though. Naughtons just a plain old liability, Dawsons been quiet, Capoues liks to just stop. We’re opening up our channels for them to go through, and by not tracking opening for them to go write through. Need to get aware and start tracking runs.
- Mentioning tracking we should have had someone shirt tight to Suarez all game.
- Walker needs to start getting up into the overlap, it’s causing our attack to be less potent.
- Penetration is just no where, mainly cause no ball retention, need to smother them, be patient and slip through the cracks we know we can do that.
- We are crossing but it’s always the wrong cross, no-ones ever running onto it. LOOK FOR THE RUNS.
- We’ve been playing so well recently, we need to go back to that, fast, slick passing, making the opponent chase us, not the other way around.
