Good morning.

Two bits of footage for you this morning. The first is of a man that many fancied to manage when was binned. Ladies and gentlefolk I give you Brendan Rodgers. A man who makes David Brent look like Albert Einstein.

Being: episode 4 airs tomorrow night on Channel 5 but I have the full show for you clicky and at 43.21 is the bit where Brent Brendan produces 3 envelopes and tells the entire Liverpool squad and staff that each envelope contains a name. The three names are those individuals that he believes will ‘let us down this season.’

The stupefied response of the room says it all. But hey, as Brentdan profoundly states: You have to believe it, to achieve it. What a pillock. Bullet dodged? Nuclear bomb dodged, more like.

The second clip is our boy Hugo training with the French squad. Butcher’s. Dog. Fit as. The footage courtesy of 101 Great Goals.com. Good to see him baring up despite the internal goalkeeping feud at The Lane. Maybe if this football managing thing doesn’t pan out, there might be a vacancy on the Daily Mail sports desk.

Sportsmail understands Villas-Boas is planning to recall Friedel for his revenge mission against , who sacked him last season.

pleaded with Villas-Boas to keep faith in him but looks set to be disappointed. Friedel was frustrated by the decision to axe him for the Villa game, while it is believed a clutch of players were also stunned by the choice.
