    This is the Brendan Rodgers thread, can we discuss Rodgers brilliance here and move the jameeys mental health issues for the jameeys mental thread. There is actually a thread covering this very point.

    That's all. Thanks for reading.

    West Ham sack their manager and the meeja and their fans are mentioning Brendan, while I applaud their ambition and he would be great for them as he would most clubs BUT GET A FUCKIN GRIP, swap champions league and this season a genuine chance at a europa run to go to a relegation threatened club where success is a top half finish, certainly having more financial muscle than we do, but Brendan played 3 academy players the other day and relishes the prospect of bringing more through, at West ham he just wouldn't get that opportunity. So for any huns having hopeful wet dreams of Brendan going to w.ham(he still has a house in London)forget it, Brendan's staying for 10 in a row.

    I think it was match of the day 2 or some show on BBC this weekend and there were pundits talking about BR going to West Ham. There was a couple of the usual ignorant twats on there but one guy, I don't know who it was, basically laughed at the thought of it. He said, along the lines of, why would BR want to leave a huge club like us to go to West Ham. The others tried to say that West Ham are a big club and the the guy said, yes they are but not like Celtic and why would he want to take a step down.

    You could almost see the EPL fan boys struggle to compute what he was saying.

    sensible article from King Kenny

    https://www.sundaypost.com/fp/009ei0312sub_story__5/

    Kenny Dalglish: Why is it just because Brendan Rodgers is doing well, there is talk of him being ready to move on?
    THE fantastic domestic run Celtic find themselves on just now should not be underestimated or played down in any way.

    Take a step back and think about it. It is now 67 games undefeated and the manager, players and coaching staff have had to put in an unbelievable effort Ė mentally and physically Ė to achieve it.

    The fact it has now reached 67 is a significant figure, of course, with the greatest achievement in the clubís history Ė the European Cup win Ė coming in 1967.

    When the amount of games unbeaten reached around the 35-40 mark, thatís when the talk of records being broken and the Invincibles really started.

    It has grown with every passing game since then, so every player, manager and supporter of every other club will have been desperate to be the team to bring it all to an end.

    Indeed, one of the biggest compliments I can pay is that I believe that when the run does come to an end, it will create more headlines than any other domestic victory Celtic will get this season.

    The next domestic defeat for the Hoops will be the lead sports story in the UK for the day, thatís for sure.

    Brendan Rodgers has to take a lot of credit for the past 18 months. He has revitalised the club and improved many of the players.

    He has also taken them into the Champions League two years on the trot, and last Sunday became the first manager to win four successive domestic trophies since Jock Stein.

    This has led to many people in the game, on both sides of the border, speculating that Brendan may want to leave and will be targeted by Ďbigger clubsí down south.

    I think talk such as that is hugely disappointing and disrespectful.

    Iíve even heard people say that Brendan may be fed up with the lack of competition in Scotland, given the fact that they take three points in almost every game.

    Listen, Iíve never known any manager to moan about winning every week.

    Why is it that when a manager is doing well, there is talk that he will be ready to move on?

    And, equally, why is it that when a manager loses a few games, many people have him down as being under pressure and just 90 minutes away from the sack?

    On both fronts, itís very unfair and wrong to speculate.

    In the case of Brendan Rodgers, why canít we just leave him to get on with his job, and allow his relationship with Celtic to continue?

    Only the man himself can tell us if he feels differently.

    Unless Iím mistaken, when he has been doing his media conferences, Brendan has never stated that he wants to leave.

    One or two jobs have been available down south in the past month or so Ė West Ham and Everton, for example Ė yet he has remained at Celtic.

    That doesnít mean to say he has knocked them back, but whichever way you look at it, he is still at Celtic.

    Right now, his focus will be on Tuesday nightís game against Anderlecht in the Champions League.

    Celtic only need to avoid defeat to progress to the Europa League stage, and to finish third in the group would be a sign of progress.

    When the draw was made, everyone at Celtic stated that the aim was to remain in Europe beyond Christmas. They are now 90 minutes away from achieving their aim.

    I expect Brendan and his players will want to do more than just avoid defeat on Tuesday.

    In front of 60,000 fans, under the floodlights, they will want to put on a performance and also get their first home win in the Champions League this season.

    Last term, against Barcelona, Manchester City and Borussia Moenchengladbach, they only took one point from a possible nine.

    So, again, to win this midweek will be another step in the right direction.

    There will no doubt be a fantastic atmosphere inside Celtic Park for this game, and the players will be absolutely ready for it.

    Led by captain Scott Brown, they will want to put on a performance against the Belgian side.

    I would never take anything for granted, but I do fancy Celtic to win the game. They have improved in Europe this season.

    Sure, some will point out they lost 5-0 and 7-1 to PSG, and I accept that is far from ideal. However, the French champions are operating on a different level to their Scottish counterparts, and thatís why such results do happen.

    So, Iím going for a positive result for Celtic, and then we will see what the draw for the last 32 in the Europa League brings them.

    That will also be a tough competition Ė but at least there wonít be any sides in it with the quality of PSG

    and Brendan himself

    ‘WHY I AM SO HAPPY AT CELTIC,’ RODGERS
    BRENDAN RODGERS has insisted he is NOT interested in quitting Celtic to return to England.

    Two English Premier League outfits – believed to be West Ham and Swansea City – had the Irishman in their sights recently.

    Rodgers admitted: “Yes, I have been aware of possibilities, as have the club, but it’s not on my radar at all. I’m very happy,

    “My love and passion is here, for a number of reasons.

    “What I appreciate more than anything now is happiness.

    “I saw a friend of mine pass away this week and there’s obviously a real sadness for him, and his family.

    “It makes you wonder about football and life

    “What I’ve gathered from when I left Liverpool, and had that seven months out, allowed me to reflect that the next club I came to, I wanted to be happy in.

    “There’s ambition, but I’m working at one of the biggest clubs in the world, and certainly one of the biggest in Britain. So I’m in no rush to leave for a number of reasons.

    “I’m very happy in my work, and I still feel there is a lot for me to do here and to achieve.

    “And while I have the goodwill of the Board and the supporters – and they believe in what I’m doing – I’m very, very happy to be here.

    “I don’t know where else I could go to get the feeling to come in and work like I do, to develop players and help different departments.

    “The Premier League is brilliant. I loved it there and I worked with two great clubs.

    “This is never to say that I won’t go back there one day, but there’s not even a notion that I’m thinking of

    “I genuinely love it here and I’m really happy at Celtic. The club has real belief in what I’m doing, which is important.

    “There is a test for me here, despite what people say. There are not many clubs in Britain where you’ve got to win virtually every game you play, and there are certainly not too many clubs at our level who are expected to go and beat PSG!

    “So I’m very, very happy in my professional life, and I really, really enjoy living up here.

    “The family is happy, we have a good life, so it’s not something I’m even considering.”

    it's great, first we had Sutton savage BFDJ on the phone in now Brendan's joining in,

    Asked if he was under scrutiny to strengthen his defence Rodgers told the Daily Record: “No there’s not. By who? Scrutiny by who?”
    Asked about Commons he added: “Right, Kris Commons … I’m about deeds, not words.
    “I’ve heard some s*** since I’ve been up here.
    I’m worried about deeds. That’s the part of your industry that I don’t like.
    “I don’t want to stand here and waste my time. I have a mountain of things to do rather than talk about speculation or what Kris Commons or other guys think.
    “Everyone has an opinion but the opinions are not always the reality.”

    Rodgers said at start of season he wanted 1 more in, a defender. it didn't happen.
    January he said to expect a revolving door of players in and out... it didn't happen

    unless you count a cup tied defender when we had to sign to strengthen for europe not the SPL and a player we were loaning back to St. Mirren.

    So aye he deserves scrutiny when each time he says he needs something or to expect deals and you get fuck all. Then he goes on the defensive.
    Has anyone seen my facts??

    Commons has him absolutely bang to rights. The stuff about BR's training regimes is interesting and while there's little wrong with them Commons is dead right about it not suiting older players. Also explains why so many players just disappear from our squads.

    BR knows he's right too, which is why he's tried to have a dig back at him. I like how the In Brendan We Trust Brigade are trying to mention his stroppy against Deila too, as if he wasn't also right then.

    Also what sort of shite is this

    I'm all for laying into the press but why go to a press conference with the media and tell them you don't want to talk about what people are saying. If that's the case then don't, instead of talking about how you don't want to talk about it. To the exact people whose entire purpose is to do just that.

    Because he knows he's right.

    Of course they could turn it around in the next 2 weeks, history shows we usually don't do enough though. Also my point is that for a few windows now Rodgers has said to expect one thing and we get another.

    His backtracking is the problem for me. If he doesn't want pulled up then he shouldn't come up with statements early in the window that later contradict him.

    Commons was spot on in the Deila situation, I feel he directed a lot of that to Collins also who you could tell had too much to say for himself as assistant.

    Brendan Rodgers I do rate as a manager but it's the arrogance. Modern coaching "we are never wrong, we try play like barca yes?" that kind of shite. That's why he refuses to be a bit more defensive and now seems we are refusing to even have defenders altogether lol

    then we wonder why in big games we concede more than 5 goals against decent opposition.

    I have to agree with CB here. It still remains to be seen. However, if we do not sign the essential players before the window shuts, we should be outraged.

    Also, the pattern of saying "Im going to bring in this player or that player", then not fulfilling on that promise is really suspicious and actually insulting to the supporters who pay good money to watch the games.

    Not just because those kind of statements raise expectation of actually signing a player - but we fucking need to sign them. We need to plug the holes.

    Commons is an absolute wanker.

    Petulance whilst wearing a Celtic jersey should have seen him sold.

    Sat on his fat arse for last year and wouldn't leave when told he wasn't wanted.

    Now six months later he is a playing the lickspittle to the Hun media.

    Fat prick.

    Commons questioned whether a 32 year old could handle the demands of BR's Celtic. At the time I dismissed it as him projecting his own shortcomings but he's been vindicated (so far)

    I don't see how he's pandering to the hun media when he's saying the same thing most Celtic fans are

    It is exactly what you said it is - because of his own shortcomings. He was a fat fuck who never ran in his career. Commper is an athlete who unfortunately picked up an injury.

    He's been doing my nut in for a while. Done the punditry at the Hun game in Dec and was sucking their balls.
