Hodgson to be sacked?

Not one to read much into rumours, but with our start to the season... i wouldnt be suprised.

 

Plus it probably warrants a discussion, could Roys tenure be the shortest in the history of liverpool fc? also does he deserve longer and if so...how long

 

With Aggers coments coming out today, there obviously seems to be some tensions in the camp..

 

 

Anyway..

Liverpool are getting ready to replace under fire manager Roy Hodgson with former Aston Villa boss Martin O’Neill if their takeover goes through, according to the Daily Star.

 

After a seventh placed finish last term, which led to Rafael Benitez’s dismissal, Hodgson has been charged with bringing stability back to the Merseysiders.

 

However, a poor start to this season, which culminated in a 3-2 loss to arch-rivals Manchester United yesterday, sees Liverpool lying in 16th position.

 

And the two consortiums trying to buy the crisis-torn Anfield club both believe O’Neill has a better chance of bringing the glory days back to Liverpool than Hodgson.

 

Despite Tom Hicks and George Gillett’s unwillingness to sell for anything less than £600 million, Royal Bank of Scotland will threaten to seize control of the club if a £280 million debt is not paid off.

 

Hicks is now looking to finance that before the October 11 deadline in order to hang onto the club and Hodgson is fighting a double-edged sword.

 

He knows the club needs new owners in order to move forward – he will have no money to spend in January if the Americans retain control – but if they are brought out then his job is in serious jeopardy

Top quality source. Thanks for posting.

 

right i know that its a rubbish source....at the same time, i really dont think that many fans would be that dissapointed if we did get rid so soon..

 

While it was probably the right time for Rafa to leave, bringing Hodgson in was always a mistake (at least in my opnion) he doesnt seem to have a clue....

I will be disappointed if Roy is sacked by new owners, even more so if he is replaced by Martin O'Neill.

 

 

Roy could have Lucio, Pique, Cissokho, Maicon, Alonso, Gerrard, Xavi, Messi, Torres and Iniesta in the squad and he'd still replace the " This Is Anfield " sign with " Softly, Softly, Catchee Monkey "

Can't really grasp this complete c*** attitude to Roy. No money to spend and hardly any time to train the players, or make a mark, and people are gleefully coming at every mistake and failure. Horrible time to be a Liverpool fan this, in all sorts of respect.

We get taken over and have millions to spend. You'd rather have Hodgson spending it than someone better?

I'd want him gone unless we got equally s*** owners.

 

I think he's bought wisely in his first summer.

 

Joe Cole - positive

Meireles - positive

Wilson - imposible to judge till we see him play

Janovic - early to judge but looking negative

Poulson - early to judge but still on the fence....just

Konchesky - early to judge but still on the fence. I believe we needed an English left-back and he was the best available.

Jones - impossible to judge till we see him play, but again we needed a replacement for Cavalieri, and one that was 'home grown'.

 

His hands have been tied with this 'home grown' rule and I think he has done the best he can.

 

He kept our major players at the club apart from the ones determined to leave (Yossi & Mascherano)

 

Both the manager and players are getting used to each other, getting used to playing in a different way - man to man marking for instance. He will make mistakes and he will get things right, it just takes time to get it right.

 

Again it's the question I used to get asked - WHO WOULD YOU REPLACE HIM WITH ?

I agree. It seems that quite rational and level headed posters have lost their minds over the last few weeks. I can understand some of it but not a lot of it.

If we had money to spend pretty much every manager bar one or two in the world would want to manage us. We shouldn' settle for a below par one just because he was already here and hadn't done enough to warrant a sacking yet.

 

We didn't need an English LB and his hands weren't tied by the home grown rule BTW. We had about 4 empty spaces IIRC for foreign players.

Joe Cole - positive - not sure he had much to do with that, that was purslow IMO

Meireles - positive - looks a good signing

Wilson - imposible to judge till we see him play - don't think he had much to do with him either

Janovic - early to judge but looking negative - Rafa signing

Poulson - early to judge but still on the fence....just - crap signing

Konchesky - early to judge but still on the fence. I believe we needed an English left-back and he was the best available, he is crap, and why did we need "an english left-back"?

Jones - impossible to judge till we see him play, but again we needed a replacement for Cavalieri, and one that was 'home grown'. another pointless signing
