I've "never actually seen him play", but Rodri seems pretty legit based on everything I read? Goes from Fernandinho being indispensable to wondering how they're going to work out the minutes back there.

I am not convinced that Rafa Benitez is as great a Manager as some pundits believe.

But he is a damn sight better than classic English retread Steve Bruce.

Newcastle will be Bruce's 11th coaching job in 20 years.

There are a bunch of guys - Bruce, Hughes, Pullis, Allardyce, Warnock who just seem to get recycled from one mediocre team to another.

Is there really such a dearth of quality young English managers?

Too scared to try unproven guys due to relegation and panic.
