I did a check on the respective results of Liverpool under Kenny Dalglish and Roy Hodgson before him from August to January in 2010 for Hodgson and in 2011 for Dalglish.
After our stalemate against Stoke last weekend, I felt it was time to step back and see the improvements in results at Liverpool since Kenny took over from the disasterous days under Roy Hodgson.
We are 11 points better off than this time last year and are in 7th place in the League compared to 13th and only having 26 points under Hodgson.
So while things are not ideal, we have made a major improvement with Dalglish back at the helm, despite not having Steven Gerrard for most of the Season so far and without the departed Torres, we are in contention for fourth place and one game away from the Carling Cup Final.
Lets hope for a much-needed win at the Reebok Arena versus Bolton.
