Long runs the Fox ?
Last nights news from the Herald that Leicester have made a move for Brendan followed a tip off from a well known poster that he heard bad news was coming.
The timing is manna from heaven for many ,, actually a squirrel from heaven is probably more appropriate.
The Herald also had a side article entitled how Leicester and Rodgers could be a good fit . Classy eh ?
They want him now , states the report . There would be a fee , a decent fee , to release him , but thats not important here.
This is a mega decision that could have big repercussions no matter which way the decision goes .
A staying Brendan just united the cause ,
A leaving Brendan just split the cause.
A departure would also say a hell of a lot about the state of Scottish football and give us the double heart in mouth moments of who’s gonna take the reigns for the rest of the campaign , and not just any campaign here , with a rebel treble going ?
And then who gets the gig full time ? A diminished gig if people are walking out close to triple silverware ?
Whether the Foxes realise it or not they have placed us , the entire club and fan base , in a predicament just when we didnt need it . We might need to face our position in the games pecking order , and the realisation that we have serious green tinted specs on most of the time .
If 12th in the Prem can waltz in and pay to take our successful manager away just at the business end of the season then I will endeavour to make sure the ‘ beautiful ‘ game never surprises me again . Whether that surprise is that he left now or for a team 12th place lets hope we never know .
As we approach a traditionally tough trip away to the Jam Tarts ( my fav away ground ) the momentum we had established , through hard work and tough decisions like going with Scott Bain when it would have been easier to stick with Craig , is in danger of being lost in this maelstrom .
Not being at full concentration usually sees the team punished at that ground with its partizan atmosphere ,, its a big test and although we have built up a lead any slip , allied with the potential of losing the gaffer would gave hope , probably great hope , to some who could do with it.
The game was already big but just became bigger .
But speaking of big , that split in the support should the manager depart will be huge .
We all know who will get most of the blame , and this with the two huge decisions to be made I mention above . Maybe overlooking a packed carpark on the phone to potentials ?
This could get ugly and theres enough frustration built up with the fans in general that , although it sounds stupid , this really really would not go down well .
Now , having hit you with the negative stuff , you will be craving some positives .
Firstly the idea of walking during the season . From a Celtic man with close family members aligned to the club is a very strange notion and one thats frankly hard to swallow .
Its whats being reported and hinted at , but its a hell of a big jump. During the season ? Nah , surely nah ?
Next up , the man himself is not stupid and will know exactly how to play a bit of uncertainty.
As mentioned any staying from today is a type of victory and I certainly wouldnt put it past the fella to put us all in palpitations and then announce going nowhere , much to the chagrin of just about the entire top tier and level 5 probably most of all .
Thats the final push needed right there for the treble if played right imo , so Leicester may just have helped us achieve our incredible target unwittingly !
Finally ,, they play in blue and lets face it anything blue is a turn off , psychologically unnerves you . Cardiff , Everton and der Hun have all been “ the enemy” and the played in blue !
Its a small angle but who knows how much a little thing can unsettle ?
This can look whatever way you want it to and most cynics will probably see sharpish departure on the books as a mid table Prem club that has money to spend and is on a low ebb can realistically be thought of as the best offer he will get at this point down there .
The green tinted specs though see a delighted and unified dressing room marching on to triple treble behind their steadfast leader .
We shall see. And live and learn .
