Kenny wasn't a cunt neither was Rafa.
Kenny and Rafa were both cunts when they needed to be. You are delusional if you think otherwise. Rafa wouldn't let his star midfielder attend the birth of his daughter, and ostracised him when he did so anyway. Kenny was one of the most acerbic coaches we've ever had, and absolutely ruthless when he needed to be.
When you put it like that yes.
The lads really look up to him, he can still outlast most players we have. I honestly think he should be part of the backroom staff
He needs to join Klopp as a coach to continue the amazing work. I would hate for any manager to come in and start messing with what Klopp has built over the last 4 years.
Unlike Lampard for example then.
Very different. We are flying. Chelsea are a mess. Have gone through a number of managers unsuccessfully and Lampard actually got Derby close to promotion.
The expectations at Chelsea are still there, they won the league in 2016/17, which is hardly ancient history.
Yes but not even the most insane fan is expecting that. Top 4 and he’ll get another season.
If Klopp leaves hopefully with a league title or two won in 3 years then I can’t see anyway Gerrard gets the role.
Yeah, not unless he performs miracles at Rangers, and then works with Klopp for a year, kit seems rather too big a jump.
But who knows in football, it's a funny old game Dreamy
True. But he’d have had a better chance if he stayed and worked with Klopp.
I doubt his ego will let him come back under Klopp now.
his lack of charisma and personality alone would be a humongous step down. loved him as a player, but as a manager we need the best, the proven best, or he might just be another Ole.
Some of our best and most successful managers have hardly been hugely loud, charismatic personalities who love talking with the press and hugging people.
Indeed, Shankly, our most charismatic manager ever, Klopp included, was followed by one of the most dour, uncommunicative managers that it would be possible to imagine. This man also happened to be our most successful manager ever, and by a long way.
fair enough; what about the other point.
divine path the being our manager based on his qualities as a player, or look for the best option?
Kenny wasn't a bad player, a dour persona at times and a brilliant manager. Every box ticked
I'm firmly in the "take the best option" camp.
Yep, I'd take Johnny Noname over Gerrard, if Noname has proven himself. Like 2 Spanish league titles, Uefa cup win, CL win.
Luckily we don't need to worry about this yet but I can understand why we might be monitoring Stevie G's progress at Rangers. I'm a lot more interested in the right person for the job and I don't see anything to suggest the owners or Michael Edwards would let sentiment get in the way of stats.
The previous two managers under FSG were Brendan Rodgers and Kenny Dalglish
