      Anyway, so we'll be seeing BR's shiny teeth on MOTD again.
      If him and Firmino stand next to each other it's likely to burn out the camera lens.

      & Klopp 😁

      Back to Rodgers move to the Foxes, was always on the cards at some point after winning it all at Celtic.. Good appointment for the Foxes..

      County Kildare.
      Haven't lived there, or more accurately, near there, for donkey's years.

      As an example of what to expect from the place, should you ever find yourself there, there's a drink and drug clinic just outside the town run by nuns, (or used to be) called Cuan Mhuire.
      They used to have a set time for people leaving, and they'd have a bit of accrued dole money when they got out, so the local lads used to wait down the road to mug the poor fuckers.
      Welcome to sobriety  :laugh:

      Not that far from Kildangan Stud, and proper bog country, it's also a big place for "the boys" as they're known.

      I think he'll do well there if the owners give him some backing.

      Glasgow is a fantastic city - very, very similar in attitude and lots of aspects of history to Liverpool.

      Glasgow is boss. I loved it.

      I quite like watching Leicester from time to time, they've got some good players that I enjoy watching. Rodgers could be a good fit for them and if they develop well under him, could become even more entertaining. Should be interesting

      No brainer for me.

      He's won everything he can for Celtic.  They're never going to win the European Cup.  The domestic competitions aren't really a challenge with the 10x wages over everyone else.

      Whether he is motivated by money or not isn't the point.  It just isn't a personal challenge managing Celtic compared to what it would be at Leicester.

      And to be fair to Leicester, they do have some very good players, are underperforming and are the kind of team where he will think he can have an instant impact.

      If he sits on the sidelines to wait until the summer a lot of those good players may have made plans to move elsewhere and it would be an entirely different challenge for him to join them.

      The SPL however is sh*t and the bigotry attaching to the Old Firm a poison.


      Been to Edinburgh a few times in the past and thought it was lovely place. Also been to Shawfield loads of times (( Greyhound track )) but wasn't keen on that place. Does that still count as Scotland  :D

      Could be a good move for Brendan, to join Leicester, a bit more of a challenge for him. Anyway wish him well, think he could do a decent job for the club.

      One of the reasons I’ve always felt so at home in Liverpool mate.

      Sense of humour - especially the gallows type humour so similar.

      Had a great stag weekend in Leicester in ‘97 for my big mate Jimbo.

      Stayed in a wee village called Leire and ended up swimming in a fish farm pond at 4am with a local woman.

      Bishopbriggs is one of the northern suburbs - it’s just a residential area really with a wee bit of a town centre.

      I’m on the southside last 20 odd years but I grew up in a satellite town about 8 miles east and 5 miles or so from Parkhead.

      Glasgow - again like Liverpool - has seen massive commercial investment / redevelopment in some areas in the last 20-30 years (post Thatcher).

      So many different parts to it now - its a wonderful, cosmopolitan and multi cultural city now.

      Anyhow weapons are away I just get a bit defensive about my hometown ;)

      Moved to Glasgow in 2009 to study at Strathclyde and do a little work beyond that. Stayed until end of 2016. Not been back since but would always welcome the opportunity to move back there. It's a beautiful city not just the people but the way it looks.  It's full of grand history and superb architecture be it the old tenements or the main shopping streets like Buchanan. Those wonderful panoramic views of the East End looking towards Celtic Park and beyond from the Necropolis just next to the Cathedral was always a favourite spot of mine. The truly outstanding Merchant City where many a good time would be spent and your Argyle, Buchanan and Sauchiehalls were, pound for pound, the best shopping town in the whole of the UK. A good refuge for a bit of retail therapy after witnessing many a Liverpool defeat in the year of 2012! Oh and who can forget Strathclyde Union, scene of 12 hour Tuesdays no less (a pound a pint!). And then there was Sub Club. And Firewater! Will always remember the fond memories of walking down past the Cathedral, past the necropolis and then up Duke Street stumbling out of friends digs back from a night out. 6 o clock in the morning. Nurses walking by going to work and all that. The golden years 2011-2013. Only great memories yet the sad thing is you only realise how great they were till long after the event.

      Like has become the theme at Leicester, no doubt he will be out of a job in 18 months.

      Bigger challenge than Celtic though.

      In which case, you have to question why he gave up the chance to win multiple trophies in a safe job, to go to an uncompetitive club that go through 2 coaches per season.

      He has obviously taken a gamble in moving to Leicester, from the safety of managing Celtic. Brendan obviously feels that he is ready for the challenge of the premiership and possibly more lucrative rewards. Although as the above poster pointed out, his position is far more vulnerable, if he does not live up to expectations of his new club, only time will tell.

      Don’t worry, once he gets Kolo on the pitch, order will be restored.
