Signed, and what I really want to say to John W and Werner is that we are the fans of Liverpool, we are not fickle or swayed by our poor excuse for journalists we are brave and have, and will do in the future, stood by our team proud and loud even in the face of total adversity (3-0 down at half time in a CL league final to AC Milan an example of many). The most important message is that we are not stupid, we know football, we love football. We are, in the most, fair and knowledgeable we are known for applauding off opposition in defeat when they have deserved the win. Our reaction now regarding the manager is not some militant hangover from the battle against the old regime. It is genuine and real driven by our fear and dismay at what, under the leadership of Roy Hodgson, is becoming of our club. I would hope by now you have gained a solid understanding of this beautiful game and I am sure you can see where we are coming from. I understand that there are not too many options out there to even start thinking of a long term solution and I can also see the importance of having a credible and competent CEO in place to jointly decide the future direction and philosophy of our club. However, I can also see us on a potentially dangerous unstoppable downward spiral. I believe that the quality of a Manager, regardless of profession, is measured by their output. A Manager who then goes on to blame the previous manager, the players, the over sized squad, the under sized squad, the weather and now US! To me is a manager not taking ownership, a manager who is not stepping up and leading the club. These are the ramblings of a manager hiding away; disguising his failings and feeding into the 'pro-English managers' (and hate LFC) tabloid media (yes SKY). The time has now come, and sadly will very soon pass, when action must be taken my hope is you have learned enough and are brave enough to step up to the plate and lead because sadly Roy is not. Be courageous, if Roy is just a ‘stop gap’ be brave enough to pick your own ‘stop gap’, take a gamble and get us back in from the cold. Its bloody desperate being a red at the moment, desperate. If you take a clever punt on a young rising star I believe we will back you 100%.
