I was surprised and disappointed to hear all the negative noises coming from Liverpool fans after the confirmation of Roy Hodgson as the clubs new manager on Thursday.
I was also surprised to hear fans saying that they didn’t want a defensive negative brand of football coming to the club next season, I must have missed something there as I thought they had just got rid of the man who employed that style.
There was also people saying that Hodgson wasn’t flash enough, or a big enough name, that they wanted a Mourinho style manager!
Well there is an obvious problem with the man himself. Even if he hadn’t gone to Real Madrid, is there really Liverpool fans out there who thought he would have come to Anfield with the clubs current predicament?
As for the big name managers, who did they want then? Who is out there and available?
Maybe Sven? Or another Capello? Or just any old foreigner as apparently it sounds better?
If they wanted a flash manager then what about Big Ron? Or even Barry Fry?
Liverpool are a proper football club, and Roy Hodgson is a proper football man. I hope and expect the Liverpool fans will get behind Hodgson, afterall they gave Rafa Benitez magnificent support and always back their managers through thick and thin.
I don’t expect them to be any different with Hodgson, and with the fans on his side I expect a wery wery good year for Liverpool, and to see some much needed stability brought back to the club.
