Quote
Liverpool manager Roy Hodgson has warned that it will take some time for the club to reguarly compete in the Champions League again.

The Reds fell to seventh place in the Premier League and missed out on brushing shoulders with Europe's elite, and now the former Fulham boss believes that the absence could last longer than just one season.

"I would plead for patience really," Hodgson told reporters. "Of course we want Liverpool to be the Liverpool of old. We want to be up there every year competing in the Champions League.

"But we might have to accept that it will take us more than a few months. That would be a small price to pay if you get it right. You only have to look at teams who have tried to stay in the league or get into the top four."Clubs have virtually been destroyed by people making bad decisions. It's not because the owners haven't given money or supported the manager. It's just that they have brought in the wrong people."

Hodgson also retained a sense of cautiousness concerning the upcoming transfer window, and remained unwilling to put pressure on the club's owners to spend heavily.

"If the owners want to invest a lot of money, that's up to them," he said. "If we find the right players, I'm not going to be saying to them 'don't do it,'. I'm not that stupid. I want to work with the best players possible.

"But with the change that has gone on at the club and the new regime, it would be sensible for the new owners to be a bit more circumspect and get a closer look at everything.

"I don't think it would be a bad thing for us to keep testing out this squad of players.

"Before I start bringing players in, I've got to be aware that when I do, I will be pushing Shelvey or Kelly back. I've got to be convinced that the person coming in is the right one. That's the dilemma. When do we give the youngsters a chance?

"With that in mind, we have to be careful. My message to them would be - and it's no secret because I've had discussions with John [W Henry, the club's principal owner] about it - if the right players become available, and we really think they will push us on, we should go for them.

"We shouldn't hesitate if they feel they can do it. But I don't think we should be encouraging them to throw a lot of money at it straight away."

The ex-Fulham boss also admits that signing players to get rid of some others does not necessarily boil down to squad strengthening unless the incoming player performs well.

And he is willing to wait for his charges to display their strength as the season goes on, without making any rash moves on the market.

"Sometimes I'm frightened as a manager that I might get rid of a player who will be good for the club on the basis that there might be a name out there that looks a bit higher than the player you already have at the club," he said.

"When that player comes in and you work with them for two months, you realise that the name is great and it rings big bells but, in actual fact, he is no better than the player you let go. He [is] maybe even worse.

"I don't think this group of players will let the club down. I think they will play plenty of good matches between now and the end of the season.

"Whether we are going to start breaking into the top four or hitting the heights without some additions, I'm not prepared to say. I would like to keep my powder dry."


I cant believe what i have just read. We are a top 2 team. Forget what he thinks. 2 or 3 additions and we are top fucken 2. Best keeper, midfielder and striker in the world. We dont need seasons to get back into the top 4. We should do it this season. This guys negative and defensive comments are getting worse by the day. FFS. If he doesnt go by at least the end of this season we are in for tough times ahead. PLEASE LEAVE NOW

That Utrecht press conference was a shocker. He had to keep asking the guy at the side of him (?) who we had played, if Torres had played, the outcome of the Napoli match, who was below us in the table....... doesn't he know these things automatically?

I can't believe he can come out with that immediately on the heels of a self-righteous diatribe about how he's sick ofquestions about whether his job's safe. Some connection there surely.

I retract this if I'm mistaken but did I hear in the Fulham presser (I think it was) he was hailing his own record, and said "Without doubt my best year of all was 1976..." 

1976?

Totally unaware Benitez banned Dalglish from Melwood.

Pathetic.
That's because he never.

Rafa reacted to that LIE in his "Priest in a mountain of sugar" speech, saying Purslow gave Kenny the new role. Rafa was the one that brought Kenny back to the club remember.

That twat Purslow had obviously fed Hodgson lies, and Hodgson then sort of apologised a few days later when he realised he had been wrong.

Rafa offered to speak to him about everything that had gone on if he wanted.

The actions of Christian Purslow over the past 12 months have set this club back ten years. That cock banner should be out every game. I hate that twat more than I hate Hodgson, and that's saying something.

Fuck off Purslow. Fuck off Hodgson.

Great post BHB.  As for the three year thing, Hodgson HAS actually started on about that as well.  I read about him mentioning how Redknapp has had 3 years at Spurs and how he has turned the club around in that time so year, from 10 games to 50 games to 3 seasons.  It has already happened. 



Quote
“I think I would be a good comparison with Tottenham because Harry [Redknapp] came in there just as I came into Fulham so he will just be completing three years and he has brought in a lot of players. So to really call it my team, I would have had to make a slightly bigger impact on those who have been brought in.
“I am more than happy to take responsibility for this squad but it takes a coach more than five or six months to make his stamp on a club. I am hoping we will do some good business in transfer windows to come and then I will be able say, ‘If you don’t like it then I have no one to blame but myself’.”

Quote from: Dion Fanning

The chants for Kenny Dalglish that were heard again on Wednesday do not necessarily mean that the fans see him as the saviour. This is not Newcastle, longing for the return of Kevin Keegan. Simply, Dalglish represents everything Hodgson is not and, in fairness, everything Hodgson could or would not hope to be.

Thing is if the idea is to give Roy time and back bring a few players in, in January, then we could improve but we'll never be fantastic under Roy because of his negativity, on and off the field. He'll still be able to speak as Liverpool manager and ramble on with his contradictions.

The thought that Roy will be here longer than January is sickening.
More mediocre ambition, more team set ups indicating he's happy
with a draw, the only time he seems confident is in himself.

Our football team may be a bit rough right now, but if we have a motivational manager,
who could bring in  a couple of players in key positions,we might with bits of luck
along the way creep into the top 5, maybe pinch a place higher.

I just hope that the owners don't actually buy into it, as the media surely will.

"liverpool of old"?

We were competing in the CL every year up until a year or so ago. Our 6 year record under benitez is better than arsenal under wenger.

Again I'm hearing someone talk about our club as if we're newcastle, villa or everton. And unbelievably , this time it ain't andy effin gray or pat nevin, it is our own manager.... sweet jessssus :no

You have to admit, Konchesky is a great name, Insua isn't. Insua only has 5 letters, whereas Konchesky has 9. Poulsen is a 3 letter downgrade from Mascherano, but Meireles and Aquilani are the same. This explains why he's eager to get rid of Agger, Ngog and Lucas.

I can honestly say now that if Hodgson is still manager of Liverpool FC come the new season (As is looking increasingly likely) then I'll be saving a lot of money. Be interesting to see how many people are going to the games after Christmas/New Year. I predict that we'll start getting the lowest attendances we've seen. Having spoken to Season Ticket mates that can't even be arsed going on their season tickets, I think it might start to get embarrasing. The last straw for some was I think when Hodgson was crowing about 'attracting 40,000' to the UEFA Cup game and then producing THAT. It was an insult to everyone. And he didn't even mention that 8,500 of those tickets were given away to kids - no doubt most of whom will probably plump for Everton now.

Really not sure what game NESV are playing, but unless they are careful, they are going to get a hell of a lot of returns on Season Tickets and despite those saying they would jump at one - £750-£800 is a lot of money to shell out - especially if you're paying to watch a Hodge-Podge of a side every week.

Getting beyond disgusted that this idiot is still at the club. What, realistically will it take to get rid of him? Can barely stand even seeing us play at the moment - the players must be sick to the back teeth of him and the fans pretty much have all had enough.

What are NESV playing at? It's a dangerous game and one they're going to lose unless they sort it out sooner rather than later.

What I can't stand, and it permeates through the quotes, is a constant sense that mediocrity is acceptable.

Not wanting to divert this thread, but Rafa didn't accept that he could not do anything in his first season; he pushed the players and we ended up with the CL.

If you convince everyone you're not good enough, everyone believes it.  Shanks made the players feel invincible, Roy's quotes make us sound vulnerable.

We could do with a manager who does not talk the opposition up before games.

yup - to be honest i really dont give that much of a shit about our results nowadays and at quite a few games this year i've thought of going with 20 mins left because i really cannot be arsed with the shite displayed, even when we've been winning games. utter shite from hodgson, and seeing as most weekend games havent sold out this season i can see that trend continuing the longer hodgson stays

I trust the King, but if we lose a few more on the trot now - he may have to step aside, and we have to purchase another manager in the middle of the season. If we are relegated, this could be the end of our ambitions to win any title the next 100 years.

And people still use the guaranteeing fourth quote as a stick to beat Benitez with. I'd rather the manager aimed high and failed to achieve it, than aim low.

Hodgson: Liverpool now looking more like my team

Liverpool boss Roy Hodgson is keen to add to his squad in January.

Hodgson admits his team is feeling more like his own.

"It is starting to feel more like my side," said Hodgson.

"But it is still a team that I have not put together. I want to make that clear. I took the team over and I have not made that many changes. I brought in [Paul] Konchesky to play left back, Raul Meireles to replace [Javier] Mascherano and Joe Cole came in at the same time as me as well as Christian Poulsen. The other players I have inherited.

"I think I would be a good comparison with Tottenham because Harry [Redknapp] came in there just as I came into Fulham so he will just be completing three years and he has brought in a lot of players. So to really call it my team, I would have had to make a slightly bigger impact on those who have been brought in.

"I am more than happy to take responsibility for this squad but it takes a coach more than five or six months to make his stamp on a club. I am hoping we will do some good business in the transfer windows to come and then I will be able say, 'If you don't like it then I have no one to blame but myself'."

I can honestly say now that if Hodgson is still manager of Liverpool FC come the new season (As is looking increasingly likely) then I'll be saving a lot of money. Be interesting to see how many people are going to the games after Christmas/New Year. I predict that we'll start getting the lowest attendances we've seen. Having spoken to Season Ticket mates that can't even be arsed going on their season tickets, I think it might start to get embarrasing. The last straw for some was I think when Hodgson was crowing about 'attracting 40,000' to the UEFA Cup game and then producing THAT. It was an insult to everyone. And he didn't even mention that 8,500 of those tickets were given away to kids - no doubt most of whom will probably plump for Everton now.

Really not sure what game NESV are playing, but unless they are careful, they are going to get a hell of a lot of returns on Season Tickets and despite those saying they would jump at one - £750-£800 is a lot of money to shell out - especially if you're paying to watch a Hodge-Podge of a side every week.

Getting beyond disgusted that this idiot is still at the club. What, realistically will it take to get rid of him? Can barely stand even seeing us play at the moment - the players must be sick to the back teeth of him and the fans pretty much have all had enough.

What are NESV playing at? It's a dangerous game and one they're going to lose unless they sort it out sooner rather than later.
Would strongly advise against that bud, worst mistake the Mancs ever made if you ask me. Them 3 or 4 thousand that they lost to FC needed to be in the ground making there feelings known. Would rather have a few thousand in the ground that are prepared to make there feelings known than have a bunch of photo snappers sitting back & watching us slip in to mediocraty.

And people still use the guaranteeing fourth quote as a stick to beat Benitez with. I'd rather the manager aimed high and failed to achieve it, than aim low.

Posted this in another thread before, but will post it again because it sums up Hodgson for me:

I do feel sorry for him, having to inherit Gerrard, Torres and Reina. I wouldn't wish that on any manager. Clearly we need more Koncheskys and Poulsens to help us step up.

FOR.

Considering the amount Roy whinges about it not being his team, I'm wondering why he took the job on in the first place?
I did not have a long speech prepared for the players. My notes from the game show there was one message I wanted to drill into them. It is written in Spanish. Lucharlo. Fight for it.

"Clubs have virtually been destroyed by people making bad decisions. It's not because the owners haven't given money or supported the manager. It's just that they have brought in the wrong people."

absolutely pissed my pants reading this. he is a walking, talking, face rubbing bad decision- but he genuinely believes he is that damn good. freak.

"I am hoping we will do some good business in the transfer windows to come and then I will be able say, If you don't like it then I have no one to blame but myself."

- we dont want someone to blame you self centered fucking sloth. this isnt about you. this is about Liverpool Football Club. We dont want to give you a chance for you to fail, and then say "i told you so" we just want you to fuck off before the damage is irrepairable. nowhere you have been has ever benefitted from your presence, i wish he'd get the hint and just give up!

and no, we dont want to give you 200m like spurs did with harry- if we had 200m we'd have given it to the world class manager we just had- not fucking you!

Great post BHB.  As for the three year thing, Hodgson HAS actually started on about that as well.  I read about him mentioning how Redknapp has had 3 years at Spurs and how he has turned the club around in that time so year, from 10 games to 50 games to 3 seasons.  It has already happened. 
What's his fckin infatuation with Redknapp!? I can see him referring to Redknapp as "the great man, Redknapp" in a few months time. Sniveling oaf.
