    Slott to Liverpool - Minteh & the shocking track record of Dutch Managers in the Perm

    Ladies & Gent's how we doing?

    I see the bin dips are sniffing around Arne Slott the Feyenoord manager who has tutored our sensational loanee winger Minteh.

    With the complete incompetence of Ten Pence & Schhhhhteeeve McClown at the swamp Red FC in conjunction with this news of Slott's potential arrival at the Twok capital of Europe it got me to thinking about the success of Dutch managers in the Prem.

    From recollection, there was the disastrous short tenure of Frank de Boer at Palace, Ronald Koeman flopping at Everton whilst spending truck loads of cash, the great and decorated Louis van Gaal's inability to make Man U a success with all the financial resources at his disposal. I'm sure there have been several others that slip my mind.

    It strikes me that Dutch managers, have a certain attitude (like all Dutch, I have many many good friends from Rotterdam. I'm god father to my good mate Anthony's son) & those guys could argue in an empty room.

    The levels the premier league are above the Dutch league coupled with the pressure of baying fans, the constant media attention & the player power in the dressing room it strikes me that Dutch management style doesn't translate well to the Prem.

    I'd be delighted to see Slott flop at Liverpool & for the swamp dwellers to keep the Cowardly duo of Ten Pence and his boy in charge for the bulk of next season.

    Strengthens our position to stake out top 4 claim!

    What are your thoughts?

    HWtLs!

    It’s a good point. You forgot ‘our very own’ Ruud Gullit. The man who managed to fall out and drop a generationally talented striker and local legend.
    Gullit definitely had the attitude you described - I think he didn’t like Shearer because he was more popular and important than him at the club.

    Saw this, made me wonder if we'd send him back there if manager leaves.

    I suspect that even if he does move to LiVARpool he won't make a move for Minetah

    hahaha OH yeah! I erased that disaster from my memory.

    He was useless at Chelsea and then a complete train wreck for us!

    It's the Dutch mentality. Like I said, they can argue in an empty room.

    If Liverpool pony up with £60m for the lad then we'll take a 10x profit and huge amount of operating capital in the transfer market.

    Looks like its done with a 9mill compensation package including add ons. I'd say thats them and Man U in the Dutch wilderness for a few seasons. Good chance for us.

    With any luck, he'll be Liverpool's version of Moyes after Ferguson.

    Whoever follows Klopp will flop. It's how it goes with legacies. He's Dutch too so we're looking at a Ten Pence / Gullet clone. He's be sacked halfway through his 2nd season.

    Would you give him that long?
