Out of curiosity...if he continues to impress with Rangers, would you accept Gerrard as a future United-manager ? And if he was given the chance, do you think Gerrard would take the United-job ?

:lol:

Aside from the fact he’s an epicunt, I don’t think his achievements at Rangers are better than those of Ole at Molde.

I would never accept Gerrard even working in the megastore let alone managing the club at any level. I would rather have Woodward selecting the team than have Gerrard anywhere near it.

Also don't think he would take it. The fallout from the Liverpool fans would destroy his legacy at the club.

Out of curiosity...if he continues to impress in North Korea, would you accept Kim Jong-un as a future British prime minister ?
And if he was given the chance, do you think he would take the British prime minister job on ?

Imagine the reaction of the Liverpool fans. Would almost be worth it.

Every time I lose faith in this place I’m reminded it can be a fun place at times :lol:

So having a guy who grew up as a Liverpool-fan as a player and manager is ok, and having a guy who played 8 years for City and was on Liverpools books for 9 years, as manager - that is ok

But Stevie G isn't ? :)

Just saying ….

Haha can you IMAGINE the scenes... there's no chance he'd come here though, even if that scenario were possible (it's a no from me though).

Out of curiosity, is your username correct in implying you're also a Bodo Glimt fan?

He has done a fantastic job and made a club in absolute chaos into serious contenders again. Not only that, he has restored them to a tough fixture in Europe and improved their reputation massively.

It would be great to see them win the league, because I think his great work deserves a crowning glory like that. Rangers fans must be absolutely delighted with him. He would have been hard pressed to have done any better under the circumstances.

I get what you're trying to do but as I'm sure you're aware the situations are vastly different, Busby is from a different era and Ole wasn't the homegrown captain of Liverpool for years. Gerrard is, well :nono:

So would Busby never have been able to become a serious candidate for the United manger job, having played for the clubs he played for, if he'd been born a contemporary of Gerrard's, then?

I mean, at root, it's obviously the fact that Gerrard is a natural-born Scouser that makes him persona non grata, United-wise, but it's interesing that you bring up the subject of eras.

Why on earth are we discussing Gerrard as United manager? Irrespective of the fact is a fecking ridiculous idea based on who he is its equally bizarre to be getting a hard on for him after a few good results in the Scottish PL. Let's get Neil Lennon in.

How's Defoe been for them? I'm impressed by his longevity; 40 next year
Gorgeous finish a few minutes into his comeback today from (another) injury.


He's been pretty good on the whole. His finishing is still ruthless and he remains a consummate professional. Picking up a few strains though and he's generally better as an impact sub because he doesn't have the back-to-goal game of Morelos.

:drool: What a goal! I remember him saying switching to a vegetarian diet was a help a few years back. Whatever he's doing, it's certainly working!!

You would hate it at first, but imagine he came here and was an absolute success. How horrible would that be for Liverpool fans. One of their biggest legends leading their biggest rivals. (I hate the man so I’d never want it to happen)

The problem is convincing Gerrard to take it. Can’t see it in the current climate and era. Maybe if things were drastically different in a couple decades.

The last time Liverpool were this dominant they replaced Dalglish with another club legend who was getting great results at Rangers in Souness. Hopefully history repeats itself.

One thing that is horribly overlooked regarding Souness - he really had a tough, tough job. It was a bit like Moyes. Aging squad, the young players were generally not good enough. But he didnt make it easier on himself with those signings

Grobbelaar 34, Nicol 30, Hysen 31, McMahon 30, Molby 28 (and overweight), Whelan 30, Houghton 29, Barnes 28 and Rush 29 and since players generally had shorter careers back then - basically the entire core of the team was over their peak.

There were talented youngsters, but they were generally 1-2 years away from being ready for the first team.

So it wasn't an easy job - but he made a lot of mistakes of course.

For the record - I dont seriously consider Stevie G a candidate - nor do I think he would want to be our manager. But he is doing a good job at Rangers - have to give him that

They are doing insanly well in Europe again just like last year.
How? They can't have much money can they with Covid and everything?
I have no idea because I dont really follow them. Just today's game though there is a red card to Benfica but Rangers have dominated possession and shots on goal. Doing well and playing a bit more imposive than I remember.

I don't follow the Scottish league either. Just very impressive results from them in Europe recently. Them and Celtic looks to increase the coefficient a lot.

I've heard positive things about Gerrards management aswell. I wonder if it's that or the couple stand out players they have like their striker that was linked to quite a lot of clubs recently.

Are Benfica actually good themselves ?
They missed out on The CL group stage after a shock exit in the qualifiers, then went unbeaten all season up until Angel Gomes and Boavista beat them 3-0 the other night. Now this.

They spent a good amount on players this Summer and brought in Jorge Jesus who is an excellent manager. He did an amazing job with Flamengo in Brazil,and has managed Benfica and Sporting in the past. Success with all of them.

From what you're saying sound like their current team is good enough for domestic competition but not for Europe ?
