      Stevie For Manager ...
      Feb 28, 2021 02:11:05 am
      Press talk over this weekend regarding Stevie becoming manager of LFC.

      Its always been a given that in the finest traditions of The Boot Room ....that Stevie would be offered the chance to manager the club he joined as a boy and with whom he became a legend.

      Talk is that the German Football League  The DFB   have made Jürgen their No 1 priority to replace Joachim Low who has been at the helm of the national team since 2006.   17 years.
      Low is contracted to Qatar 2022 but much would depend on this postponed years Euros Championship.

      No doubt the press also swinging off the fact of our poor run of form and Stevie's early success at Rangers this season with Gary Mac.

      Stevie knows the Academy set up and the club inside out.

      Personally I would like to give Jürgen further time to turn this temporary problem around and get us on a serious run for season
      2021-22.


      Too early for Stevie ?

      Would Stevie be the obvious choice or would FSG best hire someone outside of club traditions?

      What's Jurgens timeline here?

      Jürgen under contract through 2024. He has worked wonders here and restored the club to where it should be. There should be no question whatsoever about his standing here. No reason to be talking about this now.

      EDIT: I just held my nose and read that Daily Mirror story. It's good that I held my nose because the story is total horseshit. There's not a single source in it ("It's understood that..." is not a source. It's fabrication). The Germany thing is total bollocks and the Gerrard thing has no sourcing either. Yes Gerrard is someone who could manage Liverpool one day but his work at Rangers really isn't going to do anything for FSG, and again, there is no issue with Jürgen's standing at the club.

      Throw in Rafa too! Reading a piece by Balague earlier in the week obviously pitching himself for the Celtic job, but further in the piece we crop up and he considers himself to still have "unfinished business" here.

      The Mirror have ran this story in three different guises over the last few days, they seem hell bent on JK leaving us.
      The media didn't rest until Suarez left us and they've done the same with Salah and Real Madrid for a good three years, Mane also with Barca and Real and Bobby with Barca . The Mirror have always done it every year for about 10 years Ryan Giggs was signing for Inter Milan, now I'm not arsed about the Mancs but it shows what utter BS gets spouted.

      In 2024 Rafa may well be in the mix, Stevie may have found himself in another job then who knows but I think Klopp has every intention of seeing out his contract but the media won't stop until he's been hounded out that's the way the bas**rds work when they've got their teeth in. Hopefully Jürgen is big and strong enough to ignore all the sh*te.

      When Klopp does leave then I would expect the new manager to be someone who has proven themselves at the highest level and it being a purely football decision

      Right now that isn’t Gerrard and if he stays in Scotland he would need to do something in Europe

      Rafa - sorry but he may feel he has unfinished business but we have moved on now

      I would hope the club look at someone like Nagelsmann, Rose , Stephen

      Too early for our Ste, but having said that by the time 2024 comes round he could be ready, irrespective if he’s still at Rangers, he’s doing extremely well at the moment and he is building a very good side, but again we are being sucked into a discussion  that has no basis, ......

      All the bollocks from the Mirror or S*n and the like is exactly that, total BOLLOCKS ! ! Typical English press sing your praises to high heaven when things are going great then Sh*t on you from high as soon as there’s a sticky patch, and suddenly, Klopp is sh*t, he needs to go, Klopp has lost it, should he resign, and who should replace Klopp, have your say... and then the predictable.....is Gerrard next Liverpool boss, it’s f***in clickbait sh*te,


      ....f***in rags(oh there’s that word again) print any old sh*te for some tw*t to come along read it and believe it, I used to love that Sunday paper with headlines like, “George Best plays football on the moon”  Its a funny story but you know it’s utter bullshit but you read it anyway, well, guess f***in what....?

      No way would I risk him at the moment and the paper talk is just tw*ts in the media trying to unsettle supporters. He's nowhere near ready although showing some potential at Sevco. I'm mostly impressed with his team's performances in Europe (let's be honest the SPFL is a chronic league so not much of a test). He's not got the experience for an elite club yet especially one where he is a legend from his playing days. Will he have it in 4 or 5 years? Time will tell.

      Manchester Echo and Mirror Skip, the Germany job has always been there but our man refuses to be put out to pasture.

      The ideal scenario would be for Stevie to be the manager’s understudy for a while until such time as the right situation prevails and he takes the reigns.

      The shitehawk manc media are going into overdrive attempting to create panic amongst the champions who piss all over them.

      If we drop out of the top four for a couple of seasons then it's possible to see Gerrard coming straight across but if we stabilise next season then I think Stevie needs to be going to another job either in the Prem or in the top leagues abroad to build up more experience.

      What does encourage me about him is the runs to the last 16 of the Europa League back to back. Got out of some tricky groups and been competitive with some decent teams. We shouldn't forget the standard of Scottish football so his work in Europe has been fantastic.

      In fairness Stevie is doing something in Europe, in fact considerably more than Celtic did this season.

      As much as I'm critical of Jürgen I don't want to see a change straight away, ideally I'd like to see Stevie come in as assistant to Jürgen in the final year to ensure a smooth transition, but I see no reason why Stevie could not step up to the job in 2-3 years.

      You hit the nail on the head Brian. Last thing Liverpool want to be doing is making the  same mistake as United did and voting with their heart rather than heads. We see it time and time again clubs making football legends managers all too quickly.

      Stevie making all the right noises  at Rangers which will be a good stepping stone onto his next club. However, Klopp going nowhere unless he walks. For me the only way he walks is if the club don't give him decent transfer funds.

      Anyway, this is just the usual gutter press / social media doing what they do best. FUCKING WANKERS the lot of them.

      Taken a big interest in rangers since Stevie got the job up there and I’ve been very impressed. You see in Europe how well they're coached, it’s like a mixture of klopp and rafas football, an aggressive press but defensively well drilled too (although a few individual errors have let them down of late).

      I’d be split in two minds over stevie managing us. I’d love to see him in the dugout one day (how good would it be if he won the title?) but it would be unbearable to watch if we were struggling and fans started to turn on him.

      With that said, I still hope Jürgen Klopp manages us for as long as possible.

      For the time being, I hope stevie gets a job in the prem for a club that has no major rivalry with us. When arsenal sack arteta then they might go for Brendan which would free the Leicester job up. That would be a good move for him for this stage of his career.

      Only just saw this before I posted but this is rubbish.

      You might be right in that hes not ready just yet but the job hes done at rangers has been incredible.

      It’s irrelevant how sh*t Scottish football is. He’s still gone into a club that was in huge transition, a mess in truth, stabilised them and knocked a well established force off their perch who have dominated the division for 9 years.

      He’s also got them playing superb football in Europe and has a great chance to reach the quarter finals of the uefa cup, and for rangers that’s a huge achievement, even more so when you consider hes been in the job for 3 years.

      He’s done fantastic.

      Considering this debate as being hypothetical and that Klopp will see out his remaining years of his contract, Gerrard may not be the only name we should be considering, when the time comes, historically we have promoted from within Shanks to Bob, Bob to Joe, Joe to Kenny that’s nigh on 30 years of unrivalled success bar from a season or two, not saying this will be repeated but we do have a fella who I believe can do a Bob Paisley,

      Pep Ljinders for me is one of the top coaches in the world, he has a lot of in put and knowledge as part of Klopp’s coaching staff, he is not a manager as such but then again nor was Bob or Joe for that matter, but what they do/did know was how things work at Melwood now Axa, he knows all the players individually, their likes & dislikes, their individual training methods, their traits etc, a new manager coming in would have to learn all of this and that will take time, and of course a new manager’s philosophy would take time to work to,
      With Pep Ljinders the philosophy is already there, as too is the knowledge of his  players, only thing that isn’t there is his own style of play, but I doubt it would be much different form what we are seeing with Jürgen, attacking rock N roll football,

      Know one knows what will happen when Jürgen decides to hang up his snood, but I do hope that Pep Ljinders is in the minds of those who’s job it is to seek our next manager.

      We've seen plenty of young managers do well at lesser clubs, only to not make it with the big ones.
      TOP top managers are hard to find.

      Am massive fan of Stevie and think he's doing a great job at Rangers, better even than I'd say most people expected when he went in there.
      But it would be a gamble for LFC to be his next job.
      Wouldn't rule him out, but would need to take time on the decision.

      Regardless, Jürgen is going nowhere - top of his list will be to regroup after this fuckpile of a year, and show people 2019/20 was not a one off. Reckon there'll be a fire under him to do that.
      And he says he's going to see out his contract, don't see any reason right now to doubt that.
      Whatever about jobs that'll be available this summer, whenever it is that he leaves us, he'll have a queue of people round the block trying to get him.

      Has to be added that in the piece I read, within one of the answers given by Rafa he states what a brilliant job Klopp has been doing and that it would be madness to even think about replacing Klopp.

      Don't get the clamour for Nagelsmann, every time I've seen his Leipzig team, they don't impress me. Reminds me of the "cos he's young" bullshit that saw BRod end up here. Haven't a clue who the Rose and Stephen you're referring to.

      Nagelsmann is what Klopp was like when he first started out - he is quality but it would be a risk

      Rose is current Munchengladbach manager - he has done superb with them , he is going to Dortmund next season so if he continue his trend will do well ( was great at Mainz and then Salzburg )


      Stephan is the current Rennes manager - a bit more risk but one who has a bright futur
