If you were Brendan Rodgers...

... which poisoned chalice would you choose?

Arsenal or Chelsea?

One of them will get him, but which one?

Not that id want to see him leave Newcastle, but Benitez is a much higher standard of manager.
----------------------------------------------------------------------
Certainly a much higher reputation and standing in the game as well as the trophies to back it up. Two completely different styles however and I feel Rodgers would match the style Arsenal have developed over the past couple of decades.
----------------------------------------------------------------------
The cannon fodder of the PL can outbid most of the historic European teams. Te concept of the free flowing Arsenal of the overmars era is a total fallacy. When Ibrahim Afellay went to Stoke, it was clear the EPL is a radically different beast from Wenger's golden years.
----------------------------------------------------------------------
Yes, I think the problem for Wenger started years ago, when our clubs copied his policy of sweeping in on young players at youth teams around Europe and developing them into his style. It worked wonders and when he did have to sell them he made huge profits which meant he was doing a great job with little outlay.

He was never able to keep hold of his best players in the years that followed and it eventually ended up where it is now. They need big investment as his policy no longer works, hence the attempt at a change this season but too little too late.

If Chelsea want Klopp they'll get him.
----------------------------------------------------------------------
Oh right. I guess he'll be there next season then. What a damn shame.

I think defiantly Arsenal he would be given more time to build them up where as Chelsea would be out in a season if not in top 4. Arsenal are not any worse than we were when he took over Liverpool. They need a coach to come in bring in youth and develop them over a period of time and build from there he can do that. They need to go young do what he did with us find a hungry player or two who have bags of talent but are for one reason or another not reaching their potential or getting a chance like Coutinho and Sturridge when he signed them.. He would perhaps get their forwards clicking better and playing more like they did for Dortmund.. He is not the best tactically at the defensive side of the game but he would defiantly improve Arsenal over two or three seasons and if not get them back to the top four at least put in the foundations for improvement because let’s be honest it’s a massive job and it’s going to take a lot of time and patience..

I'd love it if Arsenal or Chelsea got Rodgers, especially Arsenal. Celtic is his level, success wise, and I'd wager Moyes would have Celtic in a similar position. He's proven to be a poor defensive coach, poor in Europe and with a bad eye for a player more often than not. I doubt he'd have Arsenal dong anything more than challenging for 4th and maybe getting to the odd domestic cup semi final/final. He certainly wouldn't revolutionise them and have them as title contenders IMO, the competition is too strong.

Rodgers will end his career with more trophies than Pochettino.

A lot more too.

Not really because Poch will win lotsa trophies at Madrid or Bayern.

Why would either of those teams want Brendan Rodgers.

His side capitulated at Liverpool and his Celtic side are being rapidly caught up by Rangers in only his second season when the title should have been dead and buried in October plus they were smashed left right and centre in Europe and his signings on the whole have been woeful.

He won’t.

He will flop when the players don’t take to his methods.

People have been saying Klopp would go to one of the new money clubs for about 8 years.

It’s never happened because he’s not interested.

Yet still fans of the new money clubs haven’t realised this, the melts.
----------------------------------------------------------------------

He prefers a project, picking up players for a few million and turning them into world beaters........

Err, hold on!
