THE SUDDEN DEPARTURE OF ROY HODGSON

Friends Of Liverpool

I knew it was coming, but I was still a bit shocked when I got up today to hear that Roy Hodgson had been sacked by the Liverpool owners Fenway Sports Group.
Hodgson is a nice guy and a good manager, but he just couldn’t cut it at Liverpool.
Too many shocking defeats, Northampton in the Carling Cup was the start, followed by losses to Blackpool, Everton…. Newcastle and finally for him, Blackburn.
Also the style of play at times was dreadful to watch, defensive, the long-ball, turgid stuff.
Neither did he get the best out of his players, which has been his biggest asset until he took over at Anfield.
By the end of his short reign, Liverpool’s team of internationals were playing like relegation fodder.
Then he never had the backing of our fans, well he did in the beginning but the style of play and the bad results meant he was always going to be on a loser there.
John Henry made a point of listening to fans groups as soon as he bought the club and he was obviously listening to them again this week, as the axe fell swiftly on Roy Hodgson’s head.
