The sins of our father

Hola. Hope you are well.

So the new Liverpool manager is Brendan Rodgers. I can’t help thinking this appointment will be seen as either inspired when he’s amassed a hat full of trophies or if it doesn’t work out people will say ‘it was inevitable’ and ‘what did you expect appointing the Swansea manager with one years experience in the Premier League.

I find it quite interesting that after an extensive and intensive search for a new manager, FSG whittled it down to Brendan Rodgers or Roberto Martinez. Is this really a true indication of where Liverpool currently find themselves? I can’t help thinking they could have looked at managers with a bit more pedigree, but what do I know?

With Martinez, supposedly turning down the Liverpool job, Dave Whelan must be a happy man. He’s so happy that he’s “agreed to (Martinez’s) request to up his spending on youth development and training facilities”. That’s something for the Wigan fans to look forward to.

Moving away from Liverpool and on to grudges. I like holding grudges as much as the next man, unless that next man is Roy Keane (just ask Alf Inge Haaland) but I think West Ham fans may have gone too far. During their play-off victory against Blackpool, they booed Thomas Ince, not because he scored against them but because 23 years previous his dad was pictured in a Manchester Utd shirt before he’d officially signed for them. Just to put this in context, 23 years ago Thomas Ince wasn’t even born. How can you boo someone for something they didn’t do and more importantly didn’t exist when the incident happened.??

Til next time, stay safe!
