I concur with most of what you have said apart from your remarks about Houllier. I accept he made alot of dodgy signings and could only take us so far. However, he deserves an affectionate place in Anfield history for the trophies he delivered. In the league, Europe and in the domestic cups we kicked on under GH.
I think the task was too big for Uncle Roy.
Souness wasn't Liverpool material - principally for his despicable behaviour off the field.
The only reason liverpool havent won the title for so long comes down to one thing and one thing only...MONEY.... United , arsenal , chelsea, and leeds to a lesser extent won the premership because they bought there success,tradition can only get you so far,,as they say MONEY TALKS AND BULLSHIT WALKS... bring on the Dubai money....
