Roy Hodgson has been confirmed as the new manager of Liverpool FC. The former Fulham FC manager, takes over from Rafa Benitez who has since moved to Inter Milan. Ironically, Roy too was a former manager of Inter Milan and has a list of clubs and international teams that he has managed during his career.
Personally i was hoping for Kenny Dalglish to take over the helm but the management has decided to go with the former manager who lead Fulham to the Europa Cup finals and a respectable 7th place in the Premier League.
My biggest problem has been the lack of passion shown by the players and the over reliance on foreign talent which never allowed the true RED passion come forward. Roy is a English man and more over his wife is from the town should reinstate the missing passion back into the team.
I hope that Roy brings stability into the team, brings back the desire and pride to wear the Liverpool crest on the shirts into the players and pushes the club forward. Its not going to be easy but im optimistic.
The coaching staff is surely going to have a overhaul and hopefully the team too. There are too many redundant players in my view which need to be removed, Some minor tweaking to new additions and hopefully some new faces from the Youth academy are given the opportunity to step up.
This is going to be a very interesting season and i cant wait already!
All the best Roy Hodgson and You’ll Never Walk Alone.
