Some of our fans are pretty stupid though. Jose & Pep were thrown around too
Abso-bloody-exactly as Mr. Partridge would say!

Wasn't aimed at your post mate. Rodgers has been in the game for as long as AVB, who yeah you could've got, but how long was he at Porto and the club before?
He's only been successful at Swansea but he's done a damn good job. Like AVB, Jose brought him in at Chelsea and he was managing the youth & reserve teams while AVB was scouting for Jose before going onto Watford & Reading. To take Swansea up and not spend much money, playing the football he does too is impressive. One big difference between Rodgers & AVB last season is that the players were clearly playing for him and he had his team well organised & motivated. AVB's a bigger name and managed at a couple of big clubs but Rodgers is probably the guy I'd want if I was a Liverpool fan.
