Rodgers hasn't ruled himself out...
Oh maaahhh gaaawwwd! It the Irishman!!!!! He is the third man Nash and Rashid Ramon were talking about!!!Also I want to know more about this “The Irishman” the article mentions. Is that a stage name like professional wrestlers have? Who is he really? Did he ever work in TNA or Ring of Honor?
I think it’ll be Rogers who gets it. He’s probably the best we can expect TBF.Rodgers hasn't ruled himself out...
Harry wheeling and dealing while the transfer window is shut would be interesting.Tony Cottee says:
"Maybe get someone in on an interim basis. Off the top of my head, someone like Harry Redknapp for example, someone who is a good, experienced manager that can get a few results"
Tony Cottee can **** right off.
His reaction to being asked about the job today tells me that he'd come in the summer if we wanted him. The issue is whether there is genuine interest from our end or whether it is his agent trying to link us with him.I think it’ll be Rogers who gets it. He’s probably the best we can expect TBF.
Rogers ego is the thing that makes me think he's a better option than Puel. He would love to win stuff to satisfy that ego, Puel didn't have that desire. I don't feel comfortable that he may only join in the summer as he's pissing about.His reaction to being asked about the job today tells me that he'd come in the summer if we wanted him.

The journalist Alan Nixon has been planting stories about us and Rodgers for ages now, which have clearly come from the Rodgers camp. Today, he said again that he expects us to go for Rodgers.
So, I'm not sure whether we are interested in him or not. I'm also a bit wobbly on Rodgers agent/representatives touting him to us whilst he's in a job. To me, it backs up the view that he's got an ego the size of Jupiter. Also, is it genuine or is he using us as a method of trying to get more money out of Celtic?
The links we have to Wagner and Benitez are much more solid. According to people that know (local media people that have repeatedly said this as fact), we had both on our shortlists when Ranieri left and in the summer. Both effectively wouldn't leave their jobs for us which I take as a mark of respect and integrity.
So, in the summer, we will have the choice of all three (along with several other good candidates). Of those, I think Wagner has removed himself from consideration by his failure and meltdown at Huddersfield. It makes him a risk that we cannot afford to make. Remember that we've already mortgaged our TV money for the next two seasons against the training ground. We cannot risk relegation.
If Benitez doesn't renew his contract, he'll be our first choice in my opinion. However, I wonder whether he'd not want to leave Newcastle and remain in the same league as them. He has a very strong ethic. Maybe if he leaves, he'll want to work in another country.
