    Liverpool sign best manager in the country

    We both have that strange Reading connection, I've been in the stands there a wee bit this season, I even played there last Friday but lost the final of the 6 a side tournament despite outsting a Chelsea 'legends' team!

    All he has to do is finish 7th and he will have had an acceptable start, I hope the 'lure' of Europa league football doesnt attract too much of his attention! I think Joe Cole will be happy to see an ex Chelsea man in charge, it must be good for him, I can also see Aqua being of interest to Brendan in a flashy Leon Britton kinda way! Raheem Sterling should be encouraged by Swansea's reliance on wingplay too. I reckon Steve Clarke has a good chance of staying on too having been part of Mourihnos coaching staff previously.

    • Unfortunately for me I work there. Too far from where I want to be but still I've enjoyed the odd game there this season. Sitting with a QPR fan watching some of their old players do this business for Reading has added some "extra" entertainment to it. While I can't praise their brand of football much I can only offer huge repect to the manager and team following the run they went on in the second half of the season. They've been quite ruthless in front of goal to their credit, which is a complete contrast to us at Liverpool.

      I've always wanted to see more of Aquilani in a red shirt. There is something, a little touch of class that shines through. Someone who can actually beat an opponent before he's received the ball is a sure sign of ability. I hope Rodgers can get the opportunity to look at him and see if he can fit in. And he needs to convince him to stay as well.

      Shame we couldn't have saved your resounding Chelsea thrashing for the FA Cup final.

      • Im not convinced that they were actually all footballers although its funny how some people can slop off after a few years of pie eating. Aquilani could physically do a job in a fluid side and even revel in the role but I think there is a lot to be said for him not wanting to be in Liverpool. I dont want to get bashed for drifting away from LFC based chat but I worked there a loooonnnngggg time ago as the 'Guest host' around the time of Alan Pardew taking over as caretaker manager and then full time, I met some interesting people and got to have a nice little chat with Glenn Hoddle after a failed interview?!!! A friend of mine is the kitman there now as well.

        McDermott has done some job there and he must be a candidate for a big job somewhere. Not sure his ethos is suited to us though, they seem to fight and fight and fight then take any sniff of a chance that comes their way. Almost like an early days Mourihno Chelsea. They never play pretty stuff but they know how to win, thats for sure.

    • Go on, tell us who was in the Chelsea legends team. Bearing in mind we had no legends at all between about 1975 and 1995, which was probably the era supplying your opponents, was it people like Clive Walker and his mates?

      • It was Cudicini, Drogba, Anelka, Makelele, Desailly and Veron ;) Just kidding, to be honest I was just being polite as I didnt know most of them! Ray Wilkins was meant to be there but wasnt weirdly enough. David Lee and Gareth Hall were 2 that I remember the names of but had never heard of them! I think in order to qualify you just need to have been on the books somewhere! Anyway, they got absolutely hammered....1-0.
