Manager shortlist
: Today at 07:48:04 PM »
Perhaps a little early to write Brendan Rodgers off but I think the situation will be assessed after the Christmas run of games and it will be interesting, if nothing else, to see who the LFC Reds posters deem a possible replacement should the worst happen.

So onto my shortlist...

Jurgen Klopp - losing his best players to Bayern Munich will hurt and perhaps the perfect opportunity to pounce on one of Europe's top coaches

Frank De Boer - highly rated in Holland and will instantly improve our defence and will bring a freshness to our team

Unai Emery - working wonders at Sevilla who lost the core of their first team in the summer and someone who has the balls to drop big name players

Diego Simeone - perhaps the most difficult to get but shows raw passion, plays dirty but gets the job done and after all, it is a results business

Rafa Benitez - very rarely works out when a manager returns to a former club but will improve us defensively, can spot young talent and loves Liverpool

On Feb 8th this year we beat Arsenal 5-1 at home. On March 16th this year we beat Man Utd 3-0 away. On 13th April this year we beat Man City 3-2 to go top of the table with the title in our hands. That last win was 16 league games ago. This thread is in poor taste, and a bit too early for me thanks fella.

The thread is a bit knee jerk no? Also, it's a tad disrespectful seeing as though Brendan is still in charge.

Just my opinion though.

No, it's not just your opinion mate, you're spot on. The blurt who put it up wants a warning for this. Embarrassing.

I will say this much, when one of your own gets rounded on by all and sundry I have this unbelievable urge to jump in on their behalf. It was the case the last couple of years when world ganged up on Luis, and it's the case now with our manager. I don't want to get all Kevin Keegan here, but given threads like this I would f*cking love it if he turned it around.

I obviously didn't know those dates before I looked them up, but if someone had told you as Coutinho buried the winner in that 3-2 thriller against Man City that in 16 games time our own fans would be putting their hands up to get rid of the manager, nobody would have believed you.

Some on this forum have got our manager condemned, fired and selected his successor.
And unbelievably discussion in several threads in the same vein.
Get a f**king grip.

It's the best scenario for everyone Mick, just a shame all of these people who want it all right now can't see it or even want it in some cases.

People should be careful what they wish for. There will be regrets when somebody like Paul Lambert is getting interviewed for the job.

what do you want more to happen ? man utd thrashing us ?

brendan should have been sacked 1 month ago , he's already being given too much time because it is obvious he has no clue about tactics, about nothing , the man didnt improve our team at all in the last 3 months , for what is he paid exactly ? giving us headaches ?

the man is out of his depth, the sooner we get a replacement the more chances we've got to turn our season around, at least qualify to last 16 in ucl, because with brendan at the helm i cant see that happening, not 1 chance created away at basel, unfuckingbelievable

whilst he is here  he has  the opportunity to make amends and Weds will be a good time to start.
there are no candidates because he will not be going anywhere and will have until the end of the season to show he is the right man

Woah, woah, woah.

Firstly, let me say I am right behind Brendan Rodgers. I fully support the manager and if anyone knows me at all, I am one who supports the undefendable at times (I was backing Roy Hodgson and Paul Konchesky when people were calling for their heads!).

The idea of this thread was simply to see what other options were available and whether the grass is indeed greener on the other side. I fully support Rodgers and the shortlist I sounded out shows nothing more than the fact that perhaps Jurgen Klopp is the only manager I would take ahead of Rodgers right now.

My stupidity. I should have spelt that out from the outset.  :mad:

how dare you question brendan and even make a list for possible replacements when we are playing such beautiful football, absolutely mesmerizing style we have on the pitch, we are in great form, thrashing every team, and you have the guts to make a list of replacements ? maybe we'll win all the games remaining (26) :mad:

On the other hand, not surprised - given how the tide is turning against BR in other threads. Hope those people start posting the names of the guys they think will turn things around for us.

Jesus!  You just don't get it do you?  Brendan is our manager,  therefore he one of us, a part of the Liverpool family,   until he is no longer one of us,  this thread is not nesessary.

How about hoping Brendan is the man to turn it around,  since he is here now!
