I think Rodgers is probably one of the top coaches at developing players, but maybe lacks some ruthlessness to close out trophies

Rodgers is ridiculously underrated. Leicester are the only team to stay in the top 4 all season and we’ve had a bucket load injuries. Beaten all of the big 6 in all competitions and smashed Manchester City in their own back yard 5-2 with five at the back

Rodgers can only over-achieve for so long before being labelled a great manager. He is a victim of his own power.
Хорхе Гарсия
Judging Liverpool for "bottling" that title is fair, but trying to come up with a higher meaning on it and how it reflects on Rodgers is ridiculous. Yeah, they did bottle it, but they had no business being there in the first place. Before and after they weren´t even a top-3 team for almost a decade, yet the defining moment for a manager was not winning a title? Or last year with Leicester, not getting top-4 is his defining moment? In his first complete season as a manager, he took a roster that had finished 12th, 9th, and 9th and had them in 4th for the best part of a season until injuries, yeah, INJURIES, unraveled his team. I know injuries are just an excuse if you´re Liverpool, but other teams have them too. This year he is 3rd, 3 weeks after this video, he has the 3rd highest-scoring team, the 6th defense by fewest goals allowed, and has a 7 points advantage over West Ham. All of that with, again this year, a shitload of injuries. But nah, that doesn´t count. "He is gonna get caught by Chelsea". You mean 250 million euros spent on buying players Chelsea? Well, they better catch him, otherwise, it will just be embarrassing. ´m I supposed to believe that Guardiola would have done much better? Or Klopp? Or whoever you consider a "top" manager? Dude, I´m no British and I don´t know how it is there but, is this because he is Irish or something? Because I don´t see many objective evidence against him, it´s all "I think, I feel, I have never believed"

i think rory is argument is really debatable because the liverpool defence that season especially the 2 centre back and Mignolet as gk (sakho skirtel and toure ) if i remember correctly rubbish defenders as far as i am concern with young sterling and sturridge and flanagan and johnson at right back mate what do you expect they couldn't even defend against fu*king crystal palace and also they have young jordan henderson they were briliant when they were on the front foot i especially love when they batter totenham hotspur attacking win you games defending win you titles with them rubbish defenders at the back you cannot achieve anything

I don't think anyone can call Rodgers a "great manager" or "top manager" until he wins something. No manager has ever had the accolade of "top" unless they win things, so he shouldn't be any different. I do think however, that Rodgers has made some very suspicious tactical decisions in his time at Leicester. Last season, when they were 1-0 up at half time vs Bournemouth, he changed the side and then lost 4-1. It was a game they needed to win to try & secure top 4 and he just threw it away. In the game vs Leeds when they lost 3-1 this season, he made substitutions that made me think he is going to lose this game with that - and they did. He also sometimes plays Amartey who I think is a liability at the back. There are definitely noticeable flaws in his game but if he gets top 4 this year and wins something, he can perhaps begin a legacy but until he wins things, he will never be anything more than, at best, a half decent manager.

Learning fast and gaining useful experience in the most competitive top-flight around, but he still has some ground to cover to reach the stratosphere currently occupied by the world-class operators. In the EPL, I would put _Rodgers_ in the second tier, alongside _Espirito Santo, Tuchel, Hodgson and Hasenhüttl._ There are currently 5 world-class managers in the division: _Bielsa, Klopp, Ancelotti, Mourinho and Guardiola._

Fergie was handed everything by referees and buying players uncontested. Pep bottles the champions league unless he has Messi. Klopp bottled the league in 2019 and only won it with VAR. Mourinho bottles it in his second/third season. Semi truths yet not actually true. Chelsea spend hundreds of millions and catch Leicester - yet Rodgers is a bottler for some reason. Hope Leicester make top 4 and are able to invest champions league money to narrow the gap, from over achievers to just achievers.
Nassta K
Nassta K Måned siden
The reason Leicester didn’t make top 4 last season is that the referees didn’t allow Man United to lose matches. Watch man united Crystal Palace and it all becomes crystal clear. Even Ferdinand in the post match analysis said he didn’t understand how those decisions went to Man U.
SennaStar Måned siden
Liverpool didn't need to beat Chelsea that day, they should have played for the draw and conceding that goal in first half injury time was suicidal football, they should have just rolled the ball around and seen the clock out, Gerard being the last man near the half way line was madness and Rodgers must take the blame for the tactics that day
Liam Carroll
Liam Carroll Måned siden
Leicester fan here. Rodgers has come in and no doubt improved us, he has really helped players like barnes really step up a notch. He definitely deserves praise and is no doubt a good manager. Here is my problem with him though. He is praised for his tactical fluidity and ability to change a game. I feel like this would not be a prevalent if he set up his teams right at kick off. Too many games now we are starting slow and just look off of it until he tweaks the formation, more often than not, its the same personnel, why cant he set up like that from kick off?

Rodgers is a top manager, has taken every team he has been at to another level. Swansea were brilliant under him, took a dreadful Liverpool side to the brink of winning the league, brief stint at Celtic, and now really got Leicester playing great football in the top 4 despite all their injuries and now with Barnes and Maddison out. Imh Rodgers probably only behind Pep and Klopp in terms of the premier league.

So would you say Klopp is a top 4 manager ?? same injury issues as Leicester, but both teams are standing in different positions. I think this debate is coming a few years too early, he is there to do a job over 5 years, not the two he has so far done. So far we have finished 5th and looking for a top 6 again ?? still has to build his own team. Judge him after his 5 years not 2 years in.

You can’t compare Rogers to Klopp, Guardiola, Mourinho and other top managers, because he hasn’t achieved much or proved his ability by winning. But... If you compare him to other promising managers who have yet to prove themselves, he’s easily better than Ole, Lampard, Arteta. And he may be the first of that group to really prove himself to be a great manager. Gerrard is doing very well so far. But I’d still take Rogers over him. If you have to compare Rogers to another manager I would probably say Poch is his equal, who currently has the edge on him, but when Rogers inevitably gets a chance with another top team that could change.

Rogers is a far better manager than many top 6 managers atm. Deserves a lot of credit for whatever he does.

Man, Brendan Rodgers is a fucking Don. I remember that Liverpool run under Rodgers, when Liverpool beat City with 3 games to go, and Gerrard pulls the boys into the middle and fucking SCREAMS "This does not slip now!" - honestly one of the most exciting moments I've ever witnessed as a Liverpool fan, all slip jokes aside - in that moment I've never been more invested in my team, a teenage Raheem Sterling wide-eyed and gobsmacked at big stevie giving it the gas, Rodgers visible vibrating on the touchline, desperate to run on and hug the boys...goosebump stuff for me. Who cares if he didn't bring us silverware, he took us from Roy Hodgson dark days and gave us moments like that, always a legend. Plus he's Klopps landlord so we gotta all stay pals!

Brendan rodgers is a top manager. Top 4 quality. No doubt for me. Leicester were bang average after winning the league, he single handedly pulled them into that question CONSISTENTLY. Scottish football doesnt really conclude anything but he dominated that country within a very short period of time and it cant be that easy, look at them now... The liverpool team he inherited were also absolute horseshit, suarez carried that team. But probably because Brendan built that team around him. A rotting away gerrard was not the same as he once was at that period. He was the first man to be able to do that with liverpool, i reckon liverpool could have done a newcastle hadnt they appointed rodgers. It will be set in stone when he gets his big move, with experience under his belt now - he’d do wonders for arsenal.

These same questions were asked of Klopp, seeing he lost 2 champions league finals before winning 1 and coming close to the league before winning it the next season. Basing a manager of the latter part of the season is unfair and all aspects of the squad and initial expectation should be taken into consideration before just labeling him as failing. The fact Leicester are 3rd with other teams having better overall squads and contesting the Europa league most of the season is impressive, with many other teams not being able to show the same.
