Mate, come off it, Liverpool had a team with Moreno, Sakho, Joe Allen etc and losing 6-1 to Stoke whilst finish about 9th. 

 

As for BR, hes already left a club mid season. And yes I know its SPL blah blah but he did do it. Im not saying he would leave us this March but at some point in couple of years he will move on and many on here wont understand why he is moving to a club below us in the table.

it's all ifs and buts at the end of the day, yes in 2 or 3 years i wouldn't be surprised if he went to Arsenal, Chelsea or Manchester United if we finish 6th and 7th and no silverware, but if we finish 1st and 3rd, win an fa cup and the champions league, then yes, i would be slightly more surprised. let's just see how it goes and enjoy it while it's going well.

Interestingly on Football Manager 2013 when I left Leicester for Real Madrid and England after 10 seasons, I left the club in such high esteem that they poached the Bayern Munich manager as my replacement. It was Brendan Rodgers.

 

Makes you think.

He is just over six months into a 5 yr 25m contract 

 

to leave now would cost someone a lot of money though a yanited would pay it 

 

as his contract runs down, his RC likely will in tandem ...... His agent should have ensured that relationship 

 

he won’t be going anywhere in the next year or two unless he isn’t supported by the club in some way - that gives him an ‘out’ without raising questions about his loyalty which no manager wants against their reputation...

'The Media' still can't cope with the following things:

 

1. That Leicester actual City won the Premier League.

2. That Brendan Rodgers would see LCFC as a brighter prospect than Celtic.

3. That two of their traditional Top 4 are in absolute chaos.

4. That Leicester actual City are trying to permanently join the 'elite' and are doing so without buying our way in like Chelsea, Man City and latterly Liverpool. 

 

Brendan is a highly intelligent person as well as being one of the smartest coaches in the world.

 

Yes, he wanted a top job, and is deserving of that.

 

But he's smart enough to see that Arsenal and Man Utd are at least 5 years away from restoring any sort of sanity in the upper echelons of their clubs with no clear identity each. 

 

Liverpool and Man City have two elite managers who will be staying for very a long time. 

 

Chelsea have dubious practices that often get them in trouble with the authorities - Lampard is doing well and while it's almost like they've been rewarded by having a transfer ban, they're probably just going to throw money at him next summer and see what sticks.

 

Spurs are Spurs. Levy has buggered them for a generation with stadium and the financial strife that puts on their transfer budget. They've an ageing squad now, half of whom can leave for free next summer. And they're shit. Never forget that.

 

With us he has everything he could possibly need. Best owners in football. Some of the best recruitment staff. A DOF who now takes the piss out of the biggest clubs in the world. A brand spanking new training ground coming up next summer.

 

And the most important: no/low expectations. Us fans aren't used to glory which is why 2015/16 meant so much.

 

We don't demand any silverware or European competitions. 

 

He has the freedom here to rebuild his reputation and achieve things the media don't want us to. 

 

Personally I'm happy to just enjoy the ride.


Still think he would go to Arsenal or Spurs given half a chance ..

Rodgers I reckon realises if he can keep us like this, on a consistent basis which we have the structure in place to do, and say we become the new spurs in terms of consistent champo football he then becomes the new poch being linked with top elite clubsa

There is a massive difference between moving on now and moving on in a couple of years, post potential champions league, post Vardy, post probably Maddison, Chilwell, Soyuncu.

What's the obsession with the idea of BR leaving us? 

 

Granted he doesn't have any particular love for us and obviously wants a big job in the future but the man is ambitious. And because of that ambition, he'd clearly rather take underdogs Leicester City into the Champions League than jump ship to a Spurs, Arsenal or United. No doubt he will move on at some point but he's not mug. He knows that if he stays with Leicester for the next couple of years and gets us into the CL, it'll massively raise his stock. He'll be reveered as a genius and then he walks into a real top job. 

 

It's utterly illogical for him to move on in the next 18 months when he's basically guaranteed to increase his stock whilst here.

It’s the fear of an affair when you got together through an affair. Terrible thing. He bailed out on Celtic when he was winning everything. So we know he would do it. Top job comes up and we all fear he would bail again. Let’s see if our fears are well founded.

Do you really care that much about how the media - commentators you’re talking about basically - views us? I’d rather brush up on my farsi during the match and read something balanced on here after it. Commentators are just ex pros romanticising about the good old days. Seeing us as victims of some horrible media attack seems a waste of time. I’d rather just watch Vardy knock them in instead.

Nice try.....lol

 

But seriously, clearly you are correct , its just sometimes it gets a little tedious to hear/read/be told, tantamount to "you should know your place".

Then whoever can just have a vent and move on  :thumbup:

من به هیچ وجه ما را قربانی نمی بینم ، من فقط دوست دارم که ببینم دائماً همه آنها را اشتباه نشان می دهیم ، و راهی که برخی از صاحبنظران و رسانه ها نمی توانند با آن کنار بیایند ، تغییر پارادایم است. دیدنش زیباست !! فارسی شما چطور است؟

Хорошо выраженный, и это подводит итог много разочарования, испытываемого поклонниками клубов, которые, как считают, не пируют за главным столом современного футбола. :appl:

Το πρόβλημα με άλλους συλλόγους είναι ότι το δικό τους δεν λειτουργεί τόσο καλά όσο το δικό μας. όλοι έχουμε τις ίδιες φιλοδοξίες, αλλά έχουμε μόνο τα μέσα, τους ανθρώπους και την πραγματική ευκαιρία να το επιτύχουμε. Πριν από 10 χρόνια η Man City δεν ήταν στην κορυφή 6. Πριν από 20 χρόνια η Chelsea ήταν ενδιάμεση. Πριν από 5 χρόνια βρισκόμασταν κάτω από το τραπέζι και δεν μπορούσαμε να κερδίσουμε. 5 χρόνια από τώρα, ίσως θα αποδεχτούν ότι είμαστε η ελίτ, και είναι καιρός να αρχίσουμε να αντιμετωπίζουμε ως τέτοιο.

We must've had something about us to tempt him down, I doubt just being a Premier League job would've been enough alone. 

 

Our job is currently very attractive, he's making it even more attractive and he seems to be enjoying his time at the moment.

 

I'm sure he'll look to move on at some point but I don't believe he'll just look at a club name and that's it. I'd imagine we can offer a lot that other jobs might not.
