We at the Busby Babe will miss Brendan Rodgers, who yesterday evening was sacked as manager of Liverpool Football Club. We will miss his inability to organise a defence. We will miss his remarkable nous in the transfer market. But most of all, we will miss the things that he says.
You may be aware of the writer Daniel Harris, author of several books about Manchester United. When he's not writing those, however, he's undertaking much more serious work, using Twitter to archive Rodgers' various pronouncements on the two most important subjects in the world: football, and Brendan Rodgers.
The full series is available here, but below are some of our favourites:
