He's started already.
"People need to be sufficiently aware to realise we are still fighting with lesser resources and we are still pulling rabbits out of the hat to some extent.
"If you spend £100million you are likely to get more or better players than the team that spends £2-3million.
"If you want a Savile Row suit, you pay Saville Row prices but you can still put a suit on your back from Tesco's.
"There are limits and it would be unfair to expect the Tesco man to look as good as the Savile Row man."
Hodgson added: "We are not Manchester City or Liverpool. People talk about spending £50million as if it is nothing at all.
"We talk about net spends of £2-3million if we're lucky. You have to put those things into perspective - and I think our fans can.
"I'd like to think they have got as realistic an attitude towards things as we have."
A response from a West Brom fan reads
"I'm a bit disappointed in Roy - he's starting to sound a bit peeved and negative, like he did at 'Pool....How can he say he hasn't been given money to spend when he has overseen WBA's record fee signing in Shane Long at £6.5 million plus presumabnlty biggish wages (Borja Valero was about £4.7 mill)? He also keeps having little digs at LFC. I can't see the point. He got £7.5 million compensation and should stop feeling hard done by as it will take his focus off the job in hand at WBA.....what's more, all the quotes I have read from Kenny Dalglish all talk of thanking Roy for what he did and the circumstances of him taking over being unfortunate for Roy..Why hold a grudge Mr H? ..And what's all this about Citeh and especially LFC apparently thinking that spending £50 million is nothing? So what. I don't think LFC in particualr see it as nothing, if asnything they've had to defend their spending as being OTT. So my message to Roy is don't start getting all patronising because your first six motnths went well...Keep focussing on WBA and forget about what happened at LFC...you only sound bitter otherwise. Rant over! Thank you."
