It`s a relief to be honest with you. Hopefully coming here will be more enjoyable now because the hysterical negativity was depressing me.

I... I didn't expect this to be so quick, to be honest.

Thanks for the memories, Brendan. Shame it didn't work out so well in the end, though - but, at least, I'll always have the 13/14 season, heartbreaking ending aside.

Now... I hope FSG get the right man for once. No Rodgers 2.0 please.

Wow....
If he's being asked to head the ball too frequently - which isn't exactly his specialty - it could affect his ear and cause an infection. Especially if the ball hits him on the ear directly.

They've got to scrap it from top to bottom. It's not just Rodgers, it's the committee. It all needs to go.

Thanks for everything, Brendan. Two seasons ago was one of the wildest rides we've been on as a club and, personally, I'll never forget it. I hate the way things ended and how quickly so many of our supporters got the knives out. Whatever they thought of you personally, you deserved better than that. Best of luck in the future. YNWA

Waiting for Advocaat to go first to troll the bookies.

Sorry how it ended and kissed off with how much personal abuse he had to deal with.

13/14 was such a bittersweet season but at the time it was absolutely incredible and it would be churlish for anyone to deny how great that run in was.

Thanks Brendan.
