    RODGERS FOR LIVERPOOL, MARTINEZ FOR VILLA
    It looks very much like Brendan Rodgers will be the new Liverpool manager with many newspapers predicting an announcement by the end of the week - though the Northern Irishman is yet to actually speak to the Anfield club. The Sun claims that the Swans have given Liverpool permission to open talks, with Tom Werner and John W Henry due to arrive in England today on a mission to complete their search.

    They are reported to have been impressed by Roberto Martinez but the Wigan boss was reluctant to work with a high-profile director of football like Louis van Gaal. The Daily Mirror say he has now indicated to Aston Villa that he is ready to take the job he turned down last summer.

    Rodgers on brink of Liverpool job

    Swansea have confirmed they are discussing compensation with Liverpool for Brendan Rodgers after he told them he wanted to move to Anfield.

    Last Updated: 30/05/12 at 22:01

    The 39-year-old Northern Irishman rejected an initial approach from Fenway Sports Group (FSG) due to the large number of candidates reportedly being considered for the role.

    But FSG, who had already held talks with Wigan boss Roberto Martinez, made a renewed approach to Swansea chairman Huw Jenkins on Tuesday night, with Rodgers on this occasion keen to hold discussions with Anfield chiefs.

    Those talks were held on Wednesday afternoon and Rodgers has asked to leave so he can become Kenny Dalglish's successor, with the two clubs now holding discussions over compensation.

    Jenkins said in a statement: "I was contacted by Liverpool last night and they expressed their wish to speak to Brendan regarding their vacancy.

    "I had a discussion with Brendan to talk about their interest and his views on whether he wanted to speak to Liverpool.

    "He expressed his wish with me to do that and he has spoken to Liverpool today.

    "Following on from discussions with Liverpool's owners Brendan has informed us that he would like to take up their offer to manage Liverpool.

    "At the moment we are currently in talks with the owners to agree compensation.

    "We hope to finalise that within the next 24 hours."

    Rodgers has reportedly already agreed a three-year deal at Anfield, although sources at Liverpool said this was "categorically untrue".

    Rodgers' decision comes a year to the day since he guided Swansea to the Premier League with victory over his former club Reading in the play-off final at Wembley.

    Having rebuffed Liverpool's initial approach events have moved on rapidly since Rodgers returned from a holiday in New York on Monday, where he watched Wales' friendly defeat to Mexico as a guest of the Football Association of Wales.

    Rodgers had held talks with Jenkins on Tuesday, but the club insisted those discussions were over plans for the new season, and had nothing to do with any approach from Liverpool.

    But the Swans, who are set to receive between £4million and £5million in compensation due to a clause in the three-and-a-half year deal Rodgers signed in February, will now have to plan their search for a replacement.

    And while disappointed by Rodgers' decision, Jenkins thanked the former Chelsea reserve team boss for a memorable two seasons in charge.

    "Although we are disappointed to lose such a talented, young British manager, we didn't wish to stand in his way," he said.

    "As always at Swansea City, we want people working here who are fully committed to the task ahead.

    "We wish Brendan every success in the future.

    "We will always remain good friends and we thank him for all his hard work and passion at this football club over the past two years.

    "We shall now refocus and quickly start the process of finding his replacement to continue the great work Brendan has carried out at this football club."

    Jenkins and the Swansea board will face a tricky search for Rodgers' replacement.

    The attractive possession style of play employed by the club has won plenty of plaudits, and the first-team squad has been put together with that in mind.

    And Swansea may find it difficult to find a replacement for Rodgers who would be prepared to wholeheartedly embrace his philosophy.

    An idea of how quickly events have unfolded is shown by the fact that Rodgers was set to complete his first summer signing later this week.

    Iceland international Gylfi Sigurdsson is due in south Wales for a medical having agreed terms on a club record £6.8million move from Hoffenheim, although it remains to be seen if Rodgers' decision to leave has any impact on the deal.

    Rodgers was also understood to have enquired about the availability of Tottenham forward Giovani Dos Santos, who he watched in New York on Sunday.

    There will also be fears among Swansea fans that Rodgers may look to prise some of the club's key figures away from the Liberty Stadium, with midfielder Joe Allen and defender Ashley Williams both players that he has huge admiration for.

    Former Liverpool striker Robbie Fowler believes Rodgers deserves his chance but has warned next season may be another testing one for the Anfield faithful.

    "For what Brendan Rodgers has achieved at Swansea, he deserves huge respect," Fowler told Paddy Power's website.

    "He's worked under Jose Mourinho at Chelsea so he knows the score and he's worked with top players.

    "It'd be a massive step-up for Rodgers to manage Liverpool, if he gets the job, as expected now.

    "The new manager will need to bring in new players again to take Liverpool from a top-eight club to a top-four club.

    "That's going to be really difficult. It's a massive challenge.

    "Because the top four are going to bring in new players too and that gulf increases again.

    "I have to say it, right now the 2012/2013 season looks like it's going to be another difficult one for Liverpool fans."

    Fowler felt former manager Rafael Benitez would have been the sensible option, even though FSG discounted him very early on in the process, but had concerns over long-time front-runner Wigan boss Roberto Martinez.

    "Sacking Kenny certainly wasn't everyone's cup of tea. Certainly not mine," Fowler added.

    "But football is big business. John Henry (Liverpool's principal owner) and the Fenway Sports Group have put a lot of cash into Liverpool so they can do what they want, really.

    "I like stability at a club. You can't just keep getting rid of players or managers.

    "How long has Alex Ferguson been at Old Trafford? Nobody gets that chance now.

    "My old boss, Rafa Benitez, who was an early contender to go back to Anfield, would have learned from his mistakes and could have done a job there again.

    "That said, I know people who have worked with Roberto Martinez and rate him highly. He's done a fantastic job at Wigan.

    "But that in itself worried me. Liverpool is a big club with big standards. Wigan is a little club.

    "What worried me is that, sure, Martinez brought Wigan on a run at the end of the season and they avoided relegation but what about the 30 games before that?"

    Liverpool goalkeeper Jose Reina admitted he would have liked to have seen Benitez return.

    "For many of my colleagues and me, Rafa Benitez would be the ideal candidate," he told Radio Marca.

    "It is true I'm not objective, it is the coach who most shaped me ... [he] is the best."

    Swansea City: Are the Swans the Best Team in the English Premier League?

    By Rikki Sollis (Analyst) on January 23, 2012


    While most spend their time debating whether Man City or Man United are the best team in the English Premier League, the real answer could a little more...Welsh.

    Yes, I truly believe that Swansea City could be the best team in the EPL today. And no, I'm not a Swansea fan, I'm a Man United fan. Stay with me...

    Let's kick off with an outrageous claim; Swansea are the Barcelona of the EPL. While Arsene Wenger has spent years trying and failing to get his side playing the tika-taka style football that Barca have made famous, Brendan Rodgers has managed to stroll in with his band of merry men and do just that within months. There is no doubt that the possession football which the Swans play must be admired. On average this season they have had 56 percent possession and 85 percent completion—joint top in the EPL with Chelsea and City.

    Possession can count for everything in today's game, last year's champions Manchester United also averaged out at 56 percent possession over the season.

    Admittedly, the Swans are still a far cry from Barca's 70 percent average for the 2011-12 season so far, but there's still time right?

    Like Blaugrana, Swansea boast some of Europe's top passers. While Barcelona's Xavi has successfully completed 93 percent of his passes, Swansea midfielder Leon Britton "far" eclipses him with 93.3 percent pass succession—in fact Britton is the only midfielder in the history of the EPL to register 100 percent passing accuracy over the course of a single match. Amazingly enough, Britton isn't the only passmaster in the Swans' midfield—Welsh international Joe Allen is also among the top 10 passers in Europe with a 90.1 percent success rate.

    However, this possession football has not bred a mentality of dribbling the ball into the net. Statistically, around half of Swansea's shots have come from outside of the box.

    So passing and possession obsession aside for a moment, what else makes Swansea so great?

    Eighty-seven percent of Swansea's goals have come from English players. Admittedly a strange fact to bring up, but this is surely only a good thing for English football. Six out of Swansea's starting 11 are English and there are a further six who have featured this season, and it has began to attract the attention of England boss Fabio Capello as he begins to formulate his team for Euro 2012.

    But will players from the "unfashionable" teams of the EPL make the England team? If Brendan Rodgers can keep doing what he is doing then it is certainly a possibility. Players like Scott Sinclair, Danny Graham, Leon Britton and Nathan Dyer could definitely be vying for a place on the plane if their competition has the form of Andy Carroll, the inconsistency of Bobby Zamora or even the criminal record of Stewart Downing...

    Even beyond the England national side, the Great Britain Olympic team has also expressed interest in a few of Brendan Rodgers' players. Alongside English starlet Scott Sinclair, Welshmen Joe Allen, Neil Taylor and Ashley Richards could be in contention for places.

    Maybe something that underpins Swansea's brilliance, is that their innovative approach to EPL football has also yielded little foul play. So far this season, the Swans have only committed 8.6 fouls per game, which is the lowest throughout the whole of Europe. In an age where referees' decisions are questioned on a weekly basis, it is somewhat reassuring that a side can play the beautiful game without having to bend the rules.

    Of course if they can keep up this record then there could be high reward in the form of a Europa League place next season, where Swansea's tika-taka-esque play can be flaunted on the *ahem* big stage.

    The Swans' home record has also been great this season. They've only lost on one occasion at the Liberty Stadium, and even that was a close-fought 1-0 loss to Man United. Michael Vorm has been a real breakout star this year and his impressive performances have been of great benefit to Rodgers' side, so much so that the big clubs have started to come-a-knocking. Thanks to Vorm, the Swans have the second most clean sheets in the EPL this season, second only to Manchester United.

    But there's something that makes Swansea a truly magical side. That's right, magical. Rip me as you please in the comments section, this is the Disney part of this article. Swansea haven't spent tens of millions organising a rag tag bunch of superstars from around the world, neither have they really splashed out in general on new players. In fact eight of the starting 11 who beat Arsenal, 3-2, were a part of the Swansea team who came third in the Championship in the previous season. The Swans have proved that attractive football is not necessarily the product of copious investment.

    While City, United, Chelsea and whoever else in the top six of the EPL have spent inflated sums of money organising fantastic groups of overpaid players, Swansea have assembled a team who have immense pride for their club and who play football which really encapsulates the beautiful game.

    i admit i do not know who the hell is brendan rodgers nor swansea city prior to the rumours that he is being courted by the Americans.

    only when his appointment seems imminent in the last 48hours then did I do some research on him and the so-called 'Tika-taka' style of football.


    i'm clearly impressed and i'm waiting for him to change our beloved LIVERPOOL FOOTBALL CLUB back into the force it once was.
