Brendan Rodgers first programme notes.
BHappy report: I want to get my counterbalance out of the way quickly. First game of a new regime, unreasonable to expect to see the finished article. Every educated account cites Rodgers as a great coach, but the best coach in the world isn’t going to get it all dancing to his tune in between press conferences in the space of three days…
…but I think we have a right to expect better than that. After a week in which we’ve pulled in four points and two decent performances from two awkward looking games under Mackay’s caretakership, what’s the sense behind making SEVEN (count them) personnel or positional changes to your starting eleven, only one of which (Ward) enforced? Having a clear idea of how you want your team to play is one thing. Turning it all upside down within the space of three days such that the good bits – and there were clearly good bits – of the side inherited were chucked out with the bathwater smacks of blind arrogance.
