Hodgson and the Skopje press conference.

Recommended Posts

The journo's were dying to get Roy into saying that English football is shite as you know they would have made an headline out of that.

 

Hodgson will also have known about the fact Young was not joining so that would have fucked up his forthcoming transfer plans as well.

 

What do people want Hodgson to do skip into the press conference and start going into a stand up comedy routine.

 

Playing this early after the World Cup is stupid but we knew about this last season and the majority of the players who got us into this mess will be sat at home watching whilst the youngsters try and get us through into the next round.

 

I have sympathy for Hodgson as he has had very little time to work with what you would call the main squad and he needs to get across his idea's regards tactics, formations etc so he is bound to be pissed off with playing this game tonight.

 

I think people are making a mountain out of a mole hill with this one and any journo that is pissed off with Hodgson over the conference need to grow up and stop asking stupid fucking loaded questions in the first place.

 

I don't give a fuck about Ingurland or whatever formation they chose to play, neither should our fans and certainly not our manager.

 

The young deal not being confirmed certainly had me dancing let alone skipping.

 

The context of Hodgson's confrontational attitude needs to be taken into account however. Giving a journo short shrift is not a problem nor uncommon, ask those that had to deal with Kenny. However he would constantly distance himself from the press and view them suspicously.

 

Roy, as the journos have pointed out is known as a easy going manager who will talk at ease and length with journos. The difference in him and the comment re: dicussions dictated the media response.

I think he was probably just distressed that when they asked him about tactics he couldn't give them his normal response, that they would have to ask Mr Purslow about all that.

That's a bit rich coming from the chalk-covered, wiry-haired numerologist and his portable blackboard at Speakers Corner in Hyde Park.

Bafoon as an LFC manager takes us back to the days when Houllier had totally lost it and he hasnt started yet.

 

Do you come out with shit like that to be noticed? It works so well done.

There's a Russian prostitute talking to a mate in a bar at this very moment saying:

 

"Yeah, is crazy no? He no want the sex! He want for me to listen to the football talk and take seriously. He pay big money for it".

She's almost stroking his right hand there. No wonder he wasn't concentrating on the press.

I get the feeling Roy will lose it and tear into the board memebers before Christmas. Then finally the head in sand brigade may just appreciate how much shit Rafa had to put up wih. I never thought they'd be able to break Benitez, I was wrong. Can any of you lot truely see Roy lasting the length of his contract, new owners of not?

I pray to God i'm wrong but i think Hodgson is going to be a disaster. The job is too big for him imo, although in fairness i think it's too big for most.

 

What would constitute a disaster?
