If that press conference doesn’t make you happy, nothing will. What an impressive manager. True appreciation for the history, true appreciation of the job Kenny performed, and he knows how he wants to play football and the type of player he needs. I really hope the team back up the words with performance this season – if we play anything like Brendan talks then this will be an exciting journey!
Getting quietly but stupidly excited for the season(s) ahead I must admit. Rodgers has stoked the love!
I could listen to B-Rod (sorry) all day long.
Very confident, having listened to all the interviews he’s given since being appointed, that we have not only the right manager but the right man to lead this club. The way he speaks about both the club and city is exactly what you expect from a Liverpool manager.
Having said that, it’s important our expectations aren’t too high. We’ve finished between 6th and 8th the past three seasons so to expect him to get 4th is too much, especially when he’s trying to implement a new style of play.
I do believe that if we give him time to introduce his philosophies then it could be something that benefits the club for a long, long time. A lot of fans buzz about the academy, but one of the main problems I have was that the style we played both at reserve and under 18 level was completely different to the style played at first team level. Now that Rodgers is manager, we won’t have that problem. Players in the academy (the likes of Suso, Adorjan, Nacho, Sterling) will be trained to play the same way the first team play and that will only increase our chances of bringing through talent.
As I say, it won’t be something that happens overnight but I think if we’re patient and understand the level we’re currently at, then we could end up benefit ting from it for a long time.
