Hodgson is taking us backwards guys....
I remember starting a thread with this title not long ago, and was trashed for not giving Woy time. I then agreed to come back on that thread after 10 games.... That appears too far. Woy is taking us backwards guys... What more evidence do we want. We are going to be thumped by Sunderland over the weekend. Watch this space...

Lets be honest here fellas, neither Rafa nor Houlier were a success, at least if the measure of success is the title which I think most of us would agree with. Which one was marginally better is beside the point when neither delivered what we really wanted, so surely asking why, is the better question rather than having the same playground shouting match.
The consistency is a board that has either been unable or unwilling to fund the managers anywhere near the levels of those clubs that do compete for the title year after year. We can park that blame on the yanks, and they deserve our scorn, but they are just the last in a line in the corner offices that have not done our club any favors.
Roy was not my first choice, in fact Rafa was, I really felt he deserved a pass on one bad season out of 6, or at least the chance to be judged by new owners whenever it is they finally arrive. But with his exit inevitable I'd rather had Dalglish, not because he was my childhood hero, but because I really felt he was the best chance with both his experience, and clout to keep the ship afloat. That is keep our best players, and at least be competitive for the top 4 this season.
But my choices were not what came to pass; Roy is the one who got the nod. And, because he faces the exact same problems (maybe even worse) all our recent managers have faced, I really can't expect him to do much better. I do have serious reservations about him, but do not believe Dalglish, or anyone else would do any better, at least until new owners show up. Therefore so long as he can keep the ship afloat until then, I think he deserves a little loyalty. That attribute is supposed to be in the DNA of our club, Shanks put it there, and at least until he proves he can't do the job, I'm going to support old Woy.

Ah, so you are defending Roy on the basis that Rafa lost with superior team players? Whilst that may be so, it surely doesn´t constitute a reason to insult those on here who disagree by telling them to support another club.

Mellor who can't get in the Preston side, and is on load at Wednesday? Which others? OMG!
Add the predicted values of the players currently still at Anfield that Benitez bought, to the income from sales, to the revenue generated from progressing beyond the last 16 of the CL in Rafa's time, and subtract the money spent on transfers. Benitez is in profit!
Fergie can talk, he's bought plenty of duds, and spends money like it is going out of fashion in general terms and he hates Rafa, why would you believe a word Fergie speaks about Liverpool. He lives in fantasy land.
Talking about Rafa gets us nowhere, but I know you wanted him out, and I firmly believe you will want Hodgson out in oh, I reckon give it another 14 games, thats half a season, and I think he'll still have us in the lower half of the table quite possibly.

Here we go again!
Is it going to be another merry go round of get rid of Manager etc we are starting to sound like other clubs now, changing manager every season.
