Don't make the same mistake twice, there's plenty of new ones to choose from.

Those who choose to preach would do well to take note of their own sermons.

It would have me giving up on footy all together if he's staying.

No it wouldn't. We don't have a choice to give up like players and managers do. It's in our DNA, it's who we are.

And you'll suffer with the rest of us next season too.  ;D

I couldn't stomach another minute of it either.

It's not about being right, before that one gets thrown about because there's nothing right about any of this, other than it being a right mess.
Agree 100% Tes.

Christ I just want to get back to supporting the team &
hating the Mancs. Hating the manager is so un-LFC.

Paul Merson insists Steven Gerrard is still world class and thinks it is a mistake to let a player of his calibre leave.

"He’s still their best player and is their top scorer," says Merson.   

"I can’t believe they haven’t kept this lad, he’s world class - and they haven’t got any world class players. He’s their world class player. To let him go is really beyond me."

In the midst of winter, I finally learned that there was, in me, an invincible summer.

There’s no next time. It’s now or never.

It's a tie between Merson and Tony Adams for the Arsenal job.

There is not a fly-paper between them.

FSG also need to sack their yankee plonker president Mike Gordon.

Apparently FSG think he's the smartest American when it comes to soccer.

A bit like boasting you are the top downhill skier in the caribbean.

And FSG need to take a long hard look at themselves in the mirror....three awful appointments in a row.....hodgson, dalglish and rodgers (FSG directly responsible for two of them).  They need to sack themselves, or else appoint folk who know the game.

If he's right it's a damning indictment of the squad Rodgers has built and he's better off out of it, however, these comments come from people who haven't watched us as closely as we have and are themselves part of the 'cult of personality' peddling that is endemic throughout all forms of media in this country.

If he's still world class he will have a stampede of clubs after him to do 'a Lampard', and let's not forget Lampard's been playing for the PL champions, not just 'any club'.

I await the Juves, Milans, Madrids, Barcas, PSGs, Munichs and dare I say it, Chelseas beating a path to his door.

"A similar review resulted in the sacking of Kenny Dalglish three years ago and it remains to be seen whether Rodgers suffers the same fate". Let's not forget a lot of people thought a League Cup, an FA Cup Final and the name Dalglish would spare Kenny and give him a chance to put things right. It didn't.
Rodgers doesn't have any of those things in his favour, and season 2 is outweighed by seasons 1 and 3.

Rodgers has also had 3 times as long as Dalglish to ultimately achieve no better at the end of it all.

You don't get to be as rich as these guys by being weak or 'understanding'.

If he survives the Summer, he definitely won't survive another start to next season like we saw to this, and he won't have the possible credit of finishing second to save him either.

But wait, fellow Sky pundit and colleague, ex-Rangers man Neil McCann says:

"Steven Gerrard is still one of the top performers in the country by a long way,"

"To have an icon like Steven Gerrard leaving the club is almost criminal.

"To keep someone as an attraction at the club is so important."


Do broadcasting companies actually pay for these fu.k.w.its to spout theis nonsense.

it was the same before this same meeting three years ago.

Kenny was surprisingly (to many, including himself, I imagine) dismissed at the meeting.

I suspect Brendan awaits the same fate.

Though Brendan will probably, like David Brent, go down on his knees and beg, cry, crawl and grab hold of their legs, in his efforts to be kept on.

He's probably the one who knows most about Association Football in the ownership group, but that would hardly be a ringing endorsement. It's like me saying I should be Rodgers' replacement.

If they see that as some sort of weapon in their ownership armourment then when they knock down the Main and Annie Rd stands, they needn't bother re-building them, as they won't be needed.

What is 'an attraction'? Are we a fairground? And no jokes about turning into a pantomime either.

The media are positively frothing that Rodgers won't be sacked, but big changes are on the agenda and no repeat will be tolerated. They also said Dalglish would get another year to sort things out.

They all know nothing, but pages and web pages, and broadcasting minutes need filling with something.

It'll seem like a long time until he sets foot in Boston.

Right on cue, Dave 'McMananman hair' Maddock with a confused and supposition filled piece:

Like a moth to a flame we'll keep checking the media, but it's going to be a nightmare until his trip to Boston.
