This season what Burnley is doing is more impressive than another other team, even City.
Na dude City are getting Europe's attention because of Pep, first time an English team has since Fergie.

Burnley are literal who's.

This might actually be the right thread for this considering what people think of him but personally I think Brendan Rodgers is.
Right after I posted I immediately remembered Brendan. After some thought, I'm inclined to agree with you.

He has an outstanding record with Swansea and Celtic, took Liverpool closer to the title than anyone else has since the end of your golden era with possibly one of the shittest defences I've ever seen, doesn't have an issue playing younger players and has developed heaps of players into solid PL players (Williams, Allen, Ibe) or world class stars (Suarez, Coutinho, Sterling).

Gosha suggested, I think he was serious, that he would be a great replacement for Conte and the more I think about it the more i want it to happen.

I don't see B-Rog getting touched by a top 6 club in England unless he takes over an Everton or West Ham and turns them into a Champions League club.

When Everton sacked Koeman, I did start thinking about Brendan going to Goodison, and they would fit each other like a glove. They've got a young squad with players for the style of football that he likes.

As for your club, Jardim or Tuchel would be your best replacements for Conte.

I do want Rodgers. He had Liverpool playing scintillating football and he knows how to develop youth. He doesn’t have a big personality either so I can’t see him clashing with any of the players.

The Champions League being spread out throughout the season and played between league fixtures makes it a less exciting tournament than NHL playoffs, AFL Finals and the World Cup.
