Liverpool are playing £7M for Rodgers, smashing the previous premier league transfer set by Tottenham when they got Redknapp from West Ham. The biggest involving any premier league team is AVB to Chelsea, but the receiver was a foreign team.

Looks like we are in an age of transfer fee's for managers, compensation money is getting out of control.

This is a start of a domino effect on mangers in premier league this summer, rodgers going to liverpool, lambert (maybe) going to aston villa, mackay possibly going to norwich, poyet possibly going to swansea, that bloke who use to manage schake in germany possibly going to west brom etc.  This is the silly season as we call it in football.

Strong rumours that we are getting Steve Bruce.

Pretty surprised really, thought he would be looking for a Premier League job. I'll be pretty happy if it comes off (given our situation anyway).

Gawge, you do NOT want Steve Bruce. He was woeful at Sunderland, the fans hated him and he had them in a relegation battle at the start of the season.

Anyway, pleasant change for us to be one of the most stable clubs in the league at the moment :Lol:

This year was the first year since I think 2003 that we started and finished a season with the same manager :Lol:

i'm with phep on this one. steve bruce has proven he isn't of managerial stuff - at least not in the premier league. he might be able to cut his teeth better in the championship but i doubt it.

Meh. Just shows that football is unsustainable in it's current form and if Glasgow ends up with just one big club then so be it. We can see more of this happening over of the next few years so other clubs who refuse to wake up to reality should take this as the final, ultimate warning... the governments are not going to bail out a football club. Unless you are Real Madrid.

That's would've been great if he left in time for Swansea :(

Tottenham seems to be a sinking ship. Van Der Vaart made it clear that he wanted to play for Harry so held off on signing a contract, and Luka Modric is ready to leave again. Not entirely sure what's happening with on loan Striker Adebayour. Bad times for Tottenham it seems.

I'm definitely not smiling.
