He's a very talented, progressive manager alright, but clearly also very single-minded, and so very highly principled. A real my-way-or-no-way type; diplomacy's not his thing - he'd never roll up his sleeves and get stuck into some miry political brinkmanship anywhere, like Rafa did/had to. He evidently wouldn't think twice about resigning after 20 minutes in the job if he's frustrated with anything behind the scenes! Swansea'd have to indulge him and simply not interfere, if they want to get the best from him.
Tell you what, if they do get him and it all clicks into place there, and shit doesn't go so smoothly for Buck here, FSG are gona look right twats, aren't they? I like Rodgers a lot, and perhaps he will prove the best man for us at this time in our history, but the name Michael Laudrup has a hell of a pull, does it not. Holds a lot of respect at the very highest echelons of the game, the kind of man that top players will come over just to work with. Brendan Rodgers is still carving out a name for himself in the game. Seedorf for Swansea?
