Rodgers: 'Give young managers more time'

Rodgers: 'Give young managers more time'

According to Brendan Rodgers - a favourite here at VitalWatford Towers as you may remember (!), manager's need more time.

Which would probably explain why he left Vicarage Road in such a hurry, no?

The disgraced former Watford and Reading gaffer told The Sun that young managers need more time to prevent being lost to the game:

'If a manager has an innovative approach, that takes time. As a manager, if 21 League games is a chance, you have no chance.

'At Reading, we had to sell £12million of players in the summer, with the likes of Kevin Doyle and Stephen Hunt going. It was a major rebuilding job and was not always going to be plain sailing.

'Darren (Ferguson) did a great job on limited resources at Peterborough. I don't know where his chairman expected the club to be but it was unbelievable when they sacked him.

'Middlesbrough stuck by Gareth Southgate after relegation and, when they were a point off the top, sacked him.

'Alan Irvine had done a fantastic job at Preston and, in his first tough run, they got rid of him.

'If you do not get time at a club, all you will be doing is playing survival football - and that worries me.'


Rodgers, who won just 6 games at Reading went on to mention briefly his time in WD18, before continuing to babble on about Jose Mourinho, a man we can only presume has had some sort on influence on the Ulsterman's thus far, failed career:

'I had had a lot of stick from Watford fans for leaving and I hold my hands up. With Reading I thought they were better equipped to get back in the Premier League.

'Jose always said to me 'Don't just choose the club, choose the chairman' and at both Watford and Reading, I thought I got that right.'
Which with hindsight, he certainly didn't at the Vic'!.

'I'm sure Jose will return to England one day but which club depends on the curcumstances when he is available. Jose has told me to wait for the next opportunity. It will come.

I am not bitter or angry. I am shocked I never got the chance at Reading but I will prove myself, I'm sure of that.'


We at VitalWatford Towers can only warn Rodgers' prospective employers that should he succeed with you, his jump to Chelski£$ is only inevitable, so try not to be too gutted when it happens!

A Watford Perspective - Bournemouth 0 Watford 2

After watching a painstaking first half of little chances for either side I could not help but be concerned by a looming 1-0 defeat down on the south coast.
