Well we have gone down a proven route with our famous club in the shape of Steven Gerrard. Before our very own dark cloud brigade start with ‘he’s not any better than Mr Murty he’s a youth coach’, seriously have a word with yourself!!
We are getting the same thing we got with Mr Souness, a wealth of experience at the very highest level, Champions League winner, 114 caps for England, played for them in World Cup finals with European Championships also to add to that tally, also captained them in many of those tournaments.
Everyone will be saying just because you’re a great player doesn’t mean you will be a good manager, honestly I couldn’t agree more. For that argument my only response is Mr Souness Mr Guardiola and closer to home Mr Lennon. (Lennon’s Quote; “if Gerrard’s anywhere near as good as a manager as he was a football player, none of us has a hope!”)
What does Steven bring to the table? Apart from his experience obviously, big names attract big players it’s as simple as that, we all saw what happened in 1986 and the rest is our club’s history.
We have all been screaming for ‘changes at the club’, ‘a manager we have all heard of’, ‘get rid of all the dead wood’, ‘better players arriving at the club’. Guess what, it’s happening before your eyes! Please open them!
The appointment of his assistant is very important to his success, again let’s go back to 1986 and Walter and even more history of our famous club. Looks very much like it will be Gary Mac, My personal choice would have been Terry Butcher.
The Blueprint we are now following is tried and tested unlike the recent stabs in the dark with dismal results and failings.
The penny seems to have finally dropped with Mr King and the Board. Don’t make any football decisions, leave that to Mr Allen and now Mr Gerrard.
Can’t wait for the summer with the influx of players & staff arriving at our famous club. Exciting times ahead!!
One thing that I just can’t get my head round is the Celtic supporters are in meltdown about his arrival, yet some of our support can’t see what Steven brings to the club. Crazy!!!
Two ways you can go here; jump on the Gerrard bandwagon which I am driving or stand at the bus stop with the dark cloud brigade and get your umbrella up? Your choice!!
Robbie’s Bampot Predictions:
1: Fernando Torres is one of Stevie Ger’s many recruitments. Likelihood- 6/10
2: Rangers are five points clear come the New Year game. Likelihood- 7/10
3: If one and two come to fruition Timmy goes into total and utter meltdown. Likelihood- 11/10
The tide is IN!!!
