Thoughts on Brendan Rodgers

So Brendan Rodgers has often been suggested as a future Arsenal manager whenever we talk about wanting the current manager sacked, even though he ended up being a laughing stock at Liverpool.

What are people's thoughts on him now?

He's bottled what seemed to be a certain top 4 finish in the last two seasons.

BUT he won the FA Cup

BUT that's the same trophy that the unpopular Arteta won last year.

BUT he has done better with Leicezter in the league

BUT only 5 points better than a rubbish season for Arsenal

BUT he had Leicester miles ahead of us earlier in the season and their team looked streets ahead of ours

BUT a season lasts 38 games.

Thoughts?

Better than Arteta.

Let’s not pretend we wouldn’t want Brendan over Arteta. The fact that he has Leicester in the champions league conversation every season is a miracle on its own considering the players they had lost and the budget he has compared to us. He rarely signs a bad player, knows the market extremely well and his team play an exciting dynamic style of football. This has been a shocker of a season for us, the team suddenly puts together a few results when their is zero pressure and everything is better again 🤦‍♂️.

But this is the problem - should we be setting the bar as low as "he's better than Arteta"? We're shoving a few late defeats under the carpet for him as Leicester manager, but let's not pretend we'd be doing the same thing for him as Arsenal manager.

If Arsenal had Leicester’s injuries they’d have finished below Newcastle.

Was the Liverpool he managed and won no trophies with better than this Arsenal side?

Yes, your current side is waaank

That team had Gerrard Suarez Sturridge and Sterling

He's better than Arteta but he's not top class

I think he would have us contending for top 4 with the very same squad. He has a sense of how he wants to play and seems to be good about managing his players. Injuries scampered him 2 seasons in a row.

Arteta has had a mostly fit squad this year other than Partey and Luiz. Yes I still don't know what formation, tactics and instructions are the ones we should be using. And his management of certain players (Martinelli, Reiss Nelson, Willian, Pepe) has been shocking.
