Does anyone think there’s anything in the Brendan rumours?

Recommended Posts

Be gutted if he did but I don’t think he will. He’s said himself many times he likes going to places where he can  go in and help progress a club. He’s only (relatively speaking) just started at Leicester and it’s clear the club can go on another few levels, especially with him at the helm.

 

Going to Chelsea would only be a project of putting them where they’re expected to be. Getting Leicester to the same level, consistently, that he’d be expected to get Chelsea would be a far bigger feather in his cap for his future career.

 

not dissapointed he his being rumoured to other clubs as shows he’s doing well.. I hope rumours continue

Well they’re  not rumours exactly, but I heard he’s the bookies favourite to go to Chelsea if they sack Lampard, and there were mutterings about Arsenal too if Arteta is sacked.  I’d like to think he wouldn’t move on from Leicester at the moment though. 

The bookies went 1-16 that we would remain in Europe

 

1-9 that trump wouldn’t win in 2016 

 

they don’t have a clue just making a market to try make money

For all the rumours, I still think he's well down the pecking order for choices at other clubs. The media probably promote him more as the British choice.

 

He's very well paid with supportive owners, all his own staff and a new facility he was tempted by to join originally. He's able to get on with the job without too much external pressure.

 

Would he leave for a bigger team? Yes. Is he desperate to go? I doubt it.

Bookies need people to place bets, the media need something to talk about which generates interest and money there is a massive industry in the media discussing something and they need something to talk about, So easy to get 2 + 2 to make 4 last week he was going to Arsenal, on a positive it is nice to see our manager linked with a "big 6" job

Big if! But if Leicester could win the Europa league. I’d put all of the prizemoney into the wage structure. Increasing Brendans and players wages. Clear the deadwood and this summer will be the best in the history of the game for signing quality players out of contract.

It's hard to turn down big clubs when they come calling. It's why we all love vardy, slate drinkwater, and wish mahrez and kante stayed a bit longer. Just hope we get a few more seasons from him, he's clearly going to transform us to a European club, and from there we can attract a good replacement.

I either read or heard on the radio somewhere. That its very unlikely he would go to Chelsea as he is not liked that much by certain members of the Chelsea board and added fuel to this by calling them a small club when he signed Daniel Sturrridge when he was at Liverpool.

 

Anyway I really hope we can progress with him, he stays and create something special.

Hes a great manager for us. Kept us in the top 5 pretty much since August 2019. Apart from 2015/16 we have never been close to that in most our lifetimes. Luckily we have tied him down and if he does go, it will be for a huge sum which will allow us to get a good manager. Back him in the summer and we have great times ahead. I cant see him going and if he did, we would suddenly realise how lucky we are right now.

If its the one in Bradgate Park he isn't there anymore.

He sold the Newtown Linford house early last year.

Moved to a quiet village just outside of Loughborough in September.

He's got ideas above us. That's a fact. A chance comes along for one of the big boys he takes it 

I'd expect so but I think he needs to prove more with us first before the big boys come in for him. Our post Christmas fall last season didn't help his standing. Personally feel he'd need to deliver top 4/6 and win something to raise his stock.

 

I know he's quite renowned for talking a good game but genuinely seems to like our club, the project and its potential. 

 

If he delivers Champions League and maybe a cup then then big boys could be impressed and after him. Which rules out Arsenal 🤣

Not sure if its public knowledge but I've seen the house Rodgers lives in and to me I like to think its not the kind of house you'd get if you weren't intending on staying a while 

Where is it and how swanky?

Did i not hear that we have assigned him till 2025? It will cost any team a fortune to get him.  I really don't see him going. He has turned us into a new big six team. Less pressure here for him and a chance at having a long legacy. The teams you mentioned will always have more pressure on their manager.

Arsenal-I can’t imagine it has any appeal.

 

Chelsea have just done young British manager-they’ll look at Everton and Ancelotti, then sign Zidane to try to get Madrid’s cast-offs.

 

If Rodgers goes to Arsenal, good luck to him, but I think he’s smarter than that.

 

Full Mystic Meg mode-I reckon he’ll go to Spurs in a year’s time...

Agree about Arsenal of course

But that Chelsea squad could be pretty sensational if they ever click 

I meant Chelsea is always a short term job... literally a four year stint max, and you’re gone. He would be mad to go to Chelsea it’s a poison chalice.

we can promise him significant investment, he can have a larger say in which players we target, but it’s possible we could increase his wage I suppose, or at least the length of his contract to give him the security that the project he’s bought into will be around for a while..

I think this could be the key to keeping him long term, he  needs to feel he can achieve something. He knew he had done everything he could with Celtic and maybe he would want to win a trophy and get us into the champions league before he left. Whilst it is wide open in the league this season, I don't genuinely believe he thinks he will win the league with us (even though we have done it before) but he probably feels the cups could be achievable, possibly even the UEL. There are many reasons for him to want to stay but it could also be very tempting for him to join Chelsea, but not so much Arsenal as I'm not convinced their owners would give him the significant investment needed to sort them out.

It’s be hard for him to turn down Chelsea but he’s young in football management terms and has lots of time. Leicester is an unfinished project with reasonable expectations and the chance to overachieve.

 

Chelsea has a high manager turnover rate, instant expectations and arguable due to the last window already smashed through £200 million odd in transfer budget so the kitty won’t be ‘Lampard flush’. He would also have the issue of culture - ie changing it - and with the entitled players there, a battle arguably to do so.

 

He’d be paid more for the 18 months he might last being in charge, but it’s not like the extra cash would be life-changing, considering the wedge he’s already on here.

 

It’s a job at some point he will want on his CV but I doubt that’s an itch he’ll need to scratch right now.

 

Also, Chelsea’s training facilities are nowhere near the world class standards of Leicester City’s. :ph34r:

I think he probably is a little overpaid. Can understand why the club gave him it after the start we made last season but it fell apart after that

I think the manager should be paid more than the players, it’s a hierarchy thing! I think he will stay put for now, easy going owners, good team etc, why would he want to work for a Russian and find the old horses head in his bed one morning!
