One Beer is never enough. Please remember, that no matter what he says, Royalee will always be right. We are all just too myopic to see it.


Possibly.

STAR Campaigns I rarely venture into "The Team" forum, but as this thread is talking about the methods of Brendan Rodgers I'll share some of what I learnt this afternoon when I was one of 3 STAR Board members invited to meet Brendan and spend some time with him at Hogwood.

What he said was very open, honest and enlightening, as well as being extremely inspiring. He outlined to us his career so far, what makes him the best person for this role and the process of how he came to be appointed. He then talked very openly about his way of working, what's important to him, his football philosophy and his vision for Reading, as well as some of the nuts and bolts (e.g. transfers in progress, etc). It's clear that communication is vital to him (with everyone), and that he is extremely methodical and detail-focused.

I obviously won't share the sensitive stuff about individual players, but some of the things he had to say about his vision and philosophy is superb - and I'm sure just what every supporter wants to hear. This "dossier" that people have leapt to take the piss out is is actually a large book (way more than "80 pages") which outlines all of this vision and philosophy - together with tactics, formations, attributes for each player etc. Reading it certainly inspires me and convinces me that he does know exactly what he's talking about and that he thinks deeply about the game and what he wants to achieve with this club - which is clearly special to him. We asked him how long it took to put together and his reply was "15 years."

I'll write my thought and impressions of this meeting up in more detail for the STAR website in the next few days, but I've come away feeling inspired and extremely confident that he's the best man for this role and that he has the vision and skills to make a great success of it.

The Hobnob cynics will no doubt say I've fallen for his "spin" - believe that if you really want to but my impressions after today are overwhelmingly positive.


Good, what I knew all along, it's for his benefit, and hopefully the players' benefit that he manages as well.
But for players who leave, I doubt they'll stick to his interpretation if they clash with their new manager's interpretation.


Pow!

Royalee Can we draw up a list of all the posters badmouthing Rodgers now so we can put them in their place in a year's time?

I hope that we can still do this ^^^^ :mrgreen:

If we stuck by him we would have been relegated - Wrong manager for the club at that moment in time.

There's plenty of managers that organise good players well to get the best from them, but struggle with those that are no so competent.

Rodgers seems to be one of those. Can't deny he's doing a great job at the moment and he's not relying on a Suarez/Sturridge style partnership falling in his lap this time.

But we'd have probably been promoted the next season and be in the Prem by now if we'd stuck with him ... but agree that at the time he seemed the wrong choice. He was unfortunate that he came in when really no money was available ...

He'd have jumped ship.

And we got promoted to the PL two seasons later under McD anyway.

Arguably would have been in a better “on the field” position with Rodgers though but it’s all something we’ll never know.
