I agree about O'Neill, not a good way to go.
And anyone who wants Coyle should be shot.

Disagree, maybe too soon for Coyle, but he's seems to be a really talented manager.

Agree with that mate. Next appointment is very important. Hopefully, as you say, when they pick the next manager it's with an eye to how he'll get the players we have performing and intergrated into a style of play, not just short sited like the Hodgson appointment who's style of play barely suits any of our star players. Agger, Reina, Johnson, Torres all seem to be pissed off with the way he goes about things.

It's all very well picking a manager, but they have to have a plan to get the best out of what we have, which Hodgson doesn't have. I think the WORST thing about him is that his style of play alienates all our star men, pretty much.

Exactly.  With the players we have, a manager who allows them to express themselves more and doesn't straighjacket them would be a start.  That's why I'd take Rikjaard or Deschamps any day over O'Neill.  Keeping the players happy is also about keeping the footie vibrant.

depressing but I agree. Although if we get a world class manager I think Torres and Reina will stick around for another season. Torres and Reina's problems right now are tactics. Maybe someone with attacking football can convince them to stay. I hope so though.

a good manager and showing some intent will keep nando here (just about - kinda like with gerrard in 2004) - from the sounds of things reina is sticking around with his comments about how we'll challenge for the title next season

More from Boardman:

Tony B mentions the petition calling for Roy's head, "attracting more than 11,000 signatories and demanding 'a manager of greater quality'."

This obviously undermines Roy. Normally that would make things worse, but can things go worse than they are?

To be honest i am disappointed
as i was expecting more than this.
By the look of things he will stay
here till the end of the season. What
FSG needs to know is that good
managers can be made available
even in mid season if they are willing
to throw some bucks

is that a poem of some sort?

I can think of only two reasons why they would leak this now;
1)They are confident they will be able to get the man they want in soon, and that the switch from Hodgson to the new man will happen fairly shortly.
2)They know they'll only be able to get the man they want in the summer, so leak this out to try and reduce the volume of the fans disquiet so that Hodgson can limp along till the summer when they can make the change.

At the moment 2) feels the more likely to me, but let's hope it's 1).
Agree with that. Suspect it's 2) though. :(
But thats from experience with our previous owners, so maybe this time it'll be better...

Hard to attract any quality Jan signings when you the managerial situation is like this. In coming players will be reading the rags and knowing that the manager of today won't be the manager of tomorrow. 

I know what you're saying but why is your second sentence a bad thing??

Put in a caretaker for fuck sake, we can still salvage our season as long as that gimp isn't in charge.

For me, Kenny is the only candidate who should be considered right now. He should be given the job until the end of the season. No other fucker, just Kenny and only Kenny. It has simply got to be him. Firstly, there is not a man on gods green earth at this moment in time who could possibly command more respect in our dressing room than Kenny Dalglish. There are quiet a few players in our first team who need to be told to get their fucking thumbs out of their arses and start playing like they actually give a fuck about the club that they are meant to be representing. We all know who they are, and like most of todays over paid, sulky prima-donna players, they would probably get the hump over receiving a dressing down like that. But I bet my bottom dollar not one single one of them would have the bollox to stand up against, or speak out against Kenny. Because they will know that if they did, they would feel the full and absolute wrath of the fanbase.

The man simply commands too much respect, and that respect could actually make the players fear for their very survival at the club. I can guarantee you Steven Gerrard wouldn't be moaping around with his hands on his hips and a scowl on his face if Kenny was in the dug out. No fucking way. Because he would be informed in sharpish time that such behavior by the captain would not be tolerated. Nor would Carra be so willing to scream at other players even though the person deserving the bollocking is actually Carra himself.

There would be a tidal wave of change if Kenny came in. Kenny is essentially, the number 1 iconic living figure of Liverpool football club. If the players don't give their all for him, then quiet frankly they can fuck off. Who knows, we may even weed out a few of the journey men who are happy to pick up a pay cheque without actually earning the fucking thing. And another thing that is certain, the atmosphere will go up a few decibels. I'm pretty sure the chants of "Libpool Libppol" will be sang more gusto if its a Liverpool team with Kenny Dalglish as manager. He would unite us, and could actually put us on a run that could see us challenge for 5th or 6th place, who knows, maybe even higher. Give it to Kenny until May I say. Then we can assess who the best man is to take us forward

What if he got us to 8th or 7th, say?  Would you keep him on?  Another bloody headache.  At least with a better caliber, there is more chance for stability perhaps.

Hodgson has to go. No argument. IF he had any class. IF any of his Scouse roots (missus and dad) rubbed off he would have done the honourable thing.

He has NO honour. NO class.

Roy please look at yourself. Is this really how you would like to be remembered by people around here? While you have a tiny bit of dignity. do the right thing. For you. For us. For football. For your career.

Exactly Andy.  I find it quite sad that we've been reduced to this in just 6 months.  Everything about the club has been laid bare for all insundry to see and mock, and you know there are plenty out there loving the position we're in.

This whole sorry period in our history can't come to an end soon enough for me.  Perhaps then we can look forward to a fresh outlook and a much brighter future.

He is a proven premiership manager who understands the english way of playing football and would do a great job for the club.

He was sacked from Villa because, even though they had bigger wage bills than Spurs and possibly Arsenal, he could not get them into the CL. Yet he still wanted more money invested in the squad. He never rotates, which probably scuppered their chances of fourth because with their two cup runs the players were knackered for the league run in.
He is not what we need.
There really isn't.  I think a lot of us, even our own have started doubting it. It's time to rise up. And take what is rightfully ours. It's a big mountain, but what is the point in achieving something, which everyone can?

Fate has given us a mountain too big. We have to rise. We have to believe.

If this information is directly attributable to briefing by Fenway, I will be disappointed. We would then be getting back to the bad old days of leaks and gossip-driven media management. With a similar briefing being put about that Rafa was not in FSG's plans, it's a worrying trend - if genuinely from Fenway rather than good guesswork.

My own view was that if they definitely didn't want Rafa, they should have said so, or said nothing. In this case, if they are going to sack Hodgson, then bloody do it now. If not, then say nothing. This leak (if genuine) just undermines everything and creates even more feverish speculation. It most certainly wont calm the fans or the players.

If it's a prelude to RH "resigning" after the match tomorrow, fair enough, though still the wrong way to go about things. I was really hopeful that we wouldn't be back here with whispering campaigns through the media.

I hope my fears are misplaced.

What if he got us to 8th or 7th, say?  Would you keep him on?  Another bloody headache.  At least with a better caliber, there is more chance for stability perhaps.

I think MON could easily manage us out of relegation.

It's not his tactics or man management that worry me, it's his transfer policy. He'd bring in shit like Heskey and Carew.
