Anfield Circus Tickets Still Available

Is that a double double?
The News Desk hasn’t felt the need to wade in the quagmire that is the search for a new manager quite yet, but all good things eventually come to an end. Rumours are swirling around the interwebz that prospective Liverpool gaffer Roberto Martinez will be making an announcement regarding his future, or in the very least continuing his dialogue with Fenway Sports Group, this Tuesday. The current Wigan boss has been heavily linked with the vacant Anfield hotseat after Kenny Dalglish was dismissed, following a less than acceptable season, over a week ago. The owners have cautious with replacing the outgoing regime with no major announcements, bar the appointment of Billy Hogan as Chief Commercial Officer, three days ago. Although little can be confirmed as gospel, it’s believed that a Technical Director, supposedly Louis van Gaal, will be in place before a manager is formally given the reigns. Whether that manager will be Martinez, and whether it will be on Tuesday, and whether or not the moon is actually made out of cheese, is yet to be known.

Let us know what you think in the comments. Is it Gouda or a nice Jalepeno Havarti? You can talk about the search for a new manager too if you want…

     Brendan Rodgers has now entered the mix. Who would be better Martinez or Rodgers?
    Swansea certainly play great football, because of both of them. Be nice Liverpool playing like that and always looking for technical players instead of the garbage we’ve been buying.

    LAUGHING STOCK – AND ITS GOING TO GET A LOT WORSE – FSG ARE TRYING THEIR BEST MAYBE BUT I FEAR FANS WILL WALK AWAY BEFORE THIS WEEK IS UP

  • fans lost heart

    MESSAGE TO OWNERS -Never mind NEW stadium we wont fill old one – Martinez will humiliate LFC tomorrow by deciding Wigan  or Vills better than us and then watch fans reaction – so poorly handled – CHAIRMAN TOM   will have to go.

    Did anyone notice that John Henry’s right foot is missing in the ‘photo’ of him and Maritnez in Miami. I smell a Blue hoax.

    Whether or not you agree with the sacking of kenny (I don’t another year needed) . I think FSG have been going about there business in a professional way , quietly and behind closed doors . You can tell that because you can tell the media actually havnt got a clue what’s going on . It’s hilarious that’s why they are reduced to making up wildly in accurate stories . I think we should just take a bit of a backseat and let the owners get on with it a bit , it wasn’t that long ago we had owners who seemingly didn’t have one (ie the last 20 years )

  • What I don’t understand is fans willingness to assume that FSG are a bunch of idiots who can’t even see the same obvious things that we can. So Wigan let in a lot of goals. Indeed. Do we really think FSG haven’t thought of that? Martinez is mostly unproven, especially managing a big team. Again, do we really think that one of the richest sporting owernship groups in the world hasn’t considered this?

    Let’s be honest with ourselves: we sit around a table at the pub and what happens? We talk about managing a football club like we know all the ins and the outs, making astute observations and coming up with ideas that only a footballing genius could generate? Hardly. We make obvious statements that pretty much any football fan could make and we know feck all about the actual inner workings of a football club and what is required to assemble and manage a title winning team. That’s why we’re not managers of massive football clubs and why our Saturday afternoons are spent drinking, not in the dugout.
    Fans need to get real and understand that if we’ve thought of a possible issue with Martinez then chances are FSG have thought about it too. They’ve also probably discussed it at length amongst themselves and with countless sources of expertise that they would be able to reach out to. The thing we forget is that this is their actual job, it’s what they do. They seem to be quite good at it too. So on what planet do we really think that we somehow know better than they do? Us: the armchair experts, the blokes at the pub, the weekend warriors, never managed a football club in our lives and never will? We somehow know better? I seriously bloody doubt it.

    Great points in this post,but to give some support to the `lads in the pub` theory, do you honestly think that Martinez or Rodgers will be able to A cut it at a BIG club,B pacify the expectations of the Liverpool supporters(me included),C finish in the top 4 and lastly cut it in Europa League all in one go ???
    Of course they will think they can but its an interview for God`s sake its what happens by Christmas if they hav`nt cut it that bothers me.      YNWA

  • you earn respect

    Differing views here but lets see who is right by the end of this week  ?? TIME WILL TELL

  • Istanbulwin

    they treat fans like nothings – “the Managers job is safe whatever happens in the cup final”
    We will be thorough in our search for a new Manager – they have only interviewed one, the one who’s name came from nowhere the week before Dalglish was sacked.

  • Suared

    What makes me laugh is your critisizing FSG for saying nothing. The press and the internet cronies are all speculating about who the Liverpool manager is going to be and all haven’t got a clue!

    It’s AVB..not it’s not it’s Martinez…no it’s not it’s…??? What have FSG said? Nothing That’s the Liverpool way for me so all of you keep on speculating and let the serious people get on with it!

  • Charlessamuel

    klopp – manager, Van gaal as d.o.f and promote jose Segura as technical director.

  • CSD

    I prefer Gouda.

  • they know what they’re doing, they know what they want, i just don’t think they know exactly how to get it and possibly need to manage their expectations accordingly…

    besides that, i think Grubba is a fair shout for gaffer. just floating that idea…

  • steven.

    Gouda grilled cheese? a little black pepper? rye bread? #winning

  • steven.

    who’s criticizing? don’t bother me none…this is the way it should be done. 

  • both are a decent shout if you ask me…
    great managers start somewhere and both have proved that they can play attacking, attractive football with limited resources at their disposal..
    flip a coin and hopefully it comes up the right side up…

    Mr Griffin – PREETY ACCURATE ASSUMPTION – FENWAY HAVE LOST  ANY GOODWILL THEY HAD – just dont trust the Americans – they promise but never deliver
