BTW, when will Liverpool wise up, and rehire Rafa? He knows what he's doing, better than 90+% of the coaching world, and he loves the club. I don't get it.
quote:It's not about Rodgers, and I'll admit, I haven't been following closely, as I've been lulled into non interest from Rafa's waning years and the subsequent further nothingness. Whether Rodgers is a Spanish game disciple or not, is not important, I just feel they're in a big sleep. Again, it may be, that he's got a great hole to get out of, and better someone who is local. I don't know. All I see is the 'being Liverpool' BS, and I can't glean from that what his style is. That said, maybe the Spanish style is not right going forward.
Anyway, I thought you would like Rodgers since he is a student of the Spanish game. Pretty sure he would do anything to be Pep for a day.
May I add, Rafa didn't play what is now known as the Spanish style.
The big thing with Rafa is he is an American type guy. He is all about heart and soul. The famous 'buy in'. He won with shite and against the odds. Which has it's 'desgaste'. Burnout? I don't know the exact translation.
The Being Liverpool is something I hate. Gimmicky bull shite by American owners to gain market presence.

I know this was probably Fenway Sports main goal, but I think its become more than that. It's drawn us as fans closer into the inner workings of the club, its players, and their lives. That can't be that bad of a thing.
It is high comedy to see an army of overweight computer programmers and housewives parading down a police protected street. Really.
quote:The Boston, or wherever, parade, on behalf of Liverpool was much the same, with some stateside scousers thrown in.
Shouldn't that be more of an indictment of American soccer supporters than Liverpool and the documentary?
