Hodgson to leave under new owners ? - Page 49 - FF - Football Forum - The Liverpool Way Jump to content

Recommended Posts

There were assurances that Christian Purslow, the managing director, and Ian Ayre, the commercial director, who played such a key role in pushing through the sale, will be retained by the new regime.

 

 

Nice.

It makes you wonder whether he actually believes it.

If he does it makes Houllier's delusions sound like gentle exaggerations.

 

Ahhh i just dont know. People sort of get wound up when everyone jumps on Roys every word but coming out with the stuff he does just invites criticism.

Didn't Hodgson say that it takes ten games for the league to mean anything? I'm a fair man, I'd give him the ten games and if we're haven't got at least 20 points by then...............sack him.

 

So that's a challenge, 14 points from the next three games

Those quotes in the mail from him in the mail are bizarre, if accurate. I much preferred Hodgson when he was at Fulham - he’s much more loveable when you don’t actually have to listen to all the shit he comes out with.

I think that was his point, really.

The landscape of then club the and now has changed. The most common dismissal of a good manager during the summer was that we're skint and the owners are cunts that nobody in their right mind would work for.

 

It remains to be seen what NESV's vision is but I'm afraid to be successful you often have to be ruthless.

 

Is 100% correct however I think they will have to get to know the club first so realistically Hodgson has to win the next 3 games to put pressure on the club not to sell him

How much do you reckon we'll get for him?

Talk about choking on a gnat and swallowing a camel! Its laughable how the hang-Rafa-crowd on here got their knickers in a twist whenever Rafa said something, yet they say "give him more time" when the 63 year old safe pair of hands keeps coming out with this ridiculous stuff.

 

The "safe pair of hands" are sweaty and trembling. It was always obvious that he was not up to the job. He got it through the incompetence of Purslow and Brougton who went beyond their brief as employees of the RBS charged with selling the club to interfere in footballing matters beyond their competence.

 

They should be sacked when Hodgson is sacked, if not sooner. It would be depressing if they are allowed to continue making football decisions. My guess is they won't.

He '(Hodgson) has always seen himself as an Arsene Wenger-style team builder rather than working on the Chelsea or Manchester City model of splashing the cash. (from the Mail)

 

This made me choke on my bacon buttie---Lets see we start with a couple of thirty plus no marks and build a team around them, just like Wenger did....He makes Newcastle fans seem realistic. I never thought I'd see the day when a Liverpool manager was pleased that Konchevsky was fit to play for us rather than delighted he was fit to play for the opposition.

... the players have mostly been abysmal - tell me one player who can hold his head up this season and say he's been at his best?

 

Konchesky's played as well as he can...

think Konchesky and Poulsen are getting a little harshly done to to be honest, yes Hodgsons fucked up so far but both have been okay imo, Konchesky shouldnt be in a squad aiming for the top 4 at least and Poulsen shouldnt be a name high on the team sheet but I can't criticise them whilst the so called stars have been utterly shite and much worse than them

Konchesky has been hit and miss, but Poulsen has been woeful.

must admit I havent been able to watch us live as much as usual so far this season (probably a blessing) but Poulsens always been steady, nothing wrong but nothing outstanding but what I will say about those two is they appear to be giving their all which although maybe not good enough doesnt deserve the shite they get but their efforts are more than what could be said for certain other extremely talented members of the side

You guys aren't giving NESV enough credit. They have a heavy focus on winning and employing the best in management. They will have analysed the structure of the club beforehand and mapped out possible replacements.

 

There's no way they signed on to this deal without sounding out replacements.

Agreed that they've probably sounded out replacements and such... I'm pretty sure they're counting the days until Hodgson's replaced. We never expected Roy for a long term replacement, to be honest.

Yeah, Konchesky is a solid squad player, to be honest.... but Poulsen has been diabolical.

 

I couldn't believe the link before he signed, and then resigned that Roy had to know something that I didn't, but the signing is just... ridiculous. Scharner would have been smarter than Poulsen at this point.

They'll give him the season unless he makes the decision for them i.e continuation of poor results.

 

In the meantime it gives Nesv time to get started on their work.

 

I'm looking forward to hearing how the meeting goes with the fans representative, (is this SOS?) and how they can be included within the club.

 

I'd also promote Kenny to the board asap this is to bring his footballing and community knowledge to the board.

 

Then I don't want to hear from them until stadium plans are unveiled and when we sign new players.

 

I'll give them until the end of the season re the stadium plans.

 

Now I'm really looking forward to supporting my team and discussing football!!

Werner added: "I think the one prescription for disaster is to lurch to the left and lurch to the right and we see no reason why Roy can't be our coach this year and in the future."

 

He has given himself a nice get out support the manager but if he doesnt cut it bye bye

It's not ideal.

 

But a run of results at this stage sees you climb up the table.

 

He needs time, he deserves time.

 

No he really doesn't... He wants us to play crap football and win ugly... He plays not to loose and maybe scrap a win... It's not the Liverpool way, he needs to go.... Pass and move, high pressure, taking control of games is what we want, but his teams do not play that way, and that's why hodgson and liverpool are a match made in hell!!!
