Trivia time y’all: Which of these quotes is from Brendan Rodgers and which is from the Deluded Brendan Twitter account?

  1. Lincoln Red Imps are a top class team and Gibraltar is a tough place to visit.
  2. We dominated and had enough chances to score. There’s no embarrassment.

If you said 1, is from Deluded Brendan and 2 is from the post-game presser, you’d be right:

“Rodgers: No embarrassment in Lincoln loss.”

Oh Brendan Rodgers. What will happen after he loses the first Old Firm to newly promoted Rangers? (Don’t answer that.)

And remember y’all: Last season on opening day City was managed by Manuel Pellegrini, United by Louis van Gaal, Chelsea by Jose Mourinho, and Liverpool by Brendan Rodgers. Have to think all four clubs have made noticeable upgrades in their dugouts, particularly City and Liverpool.
