If you've got some 'info' mate shop around for value prices - Martinez seems to be first or second favourite with most bookies with Villas-Boas and
Benitez both heavily tipped as well.
Well I've been looking at the prices the the last few days and It's crazy man.
Steven Gerrard and Jamie Carragher have both been anything from 200's to 40/1
I don't trust any of it at the moment.
Roberto Martinez wont be offered the job and neither will Rafa.... although oddly enough, I kinda wouldn't mind him back.... now that we have decent
owners and people who seem to want to take the club forward and are prepared to invest and so on.
I doubt Villas-Boas either but they have spoken to him, although it seems he wont be the man either.
If they have the financial resources I'd bust a gut and try my best to get Guardiola, Ancelloti might not be a bad alternative.
Well I can't see Pep giving up all that at Barca to come to Liverpool.... I mean he literally said I don't wanna manage Barca any more and want a
break... I don't think he meant I want to go to the madhouse that is Anfield.
I wouldn't mind though, just the kinda person we could do with.
I'd prefer Hiddink I think to Ancelloiti... But I dunno.
I think it could be good to give a young, British manager a chance at a big club - Brendan Rodgers and Paul Lambert would both love the opportunity to
manage a club the size of Liverpool and I think they both have what it takes to be a success.....shame there's no young, English manager that springs
Well both have been mentioned and both are pretty far down the betting list, in terms of price anyway.
I suppose good young English could be Nigel Adkins..... but I honestly think (much in the way that Martinez is not really wanted by fans) the fans
want a big name.... a big, blockbuster name for our big club.
I would be all in favour of a young Manager, a young British manager... rather than big, European name.... but I don't think they'd get the time,
nobody does now.
You bring in someone and realistically you'd have to give them at LEAST 2 full seasons... but to be fair and have any impact what so ever, it would
have to be more like 4-5.... but nobody gets that these days... nobody seems to have time to wait and see what will happen and whether someone can
transform a club into something good and bring in their own players and put their stamp on it.
Football is now an extremely fickle business.... if Fergie took over united these days, if it had happened now, he would never be given the 6 years it
took him to win the league, to turn the club around and bring in his players.
We will never find another manager or allow a manager to become that successful because we don't give them time.
I just hope the owners don't bow to press pressure and appoint someone (Like they did with Roy Hodgson) just because everyone says they should.
