I can't for the life of me understand how some think the fans will turn on him if he doesn't do well.
Firstly, Hodgson has already ensured that this will be an uphill struggle to finish in a decent position in the league. Secondly, the morale of the club is at a massive low right now, so he's got that to sort out too. Basically, if we don't do great under Dalglish then he'll have tried his best and he'll be replaced at the end of the season, and I can't believe for one second that anyone would blame him.
IF that happens, and IF people start to round on him then they need shooting. Most people disliked Hodgson because he was an appointment of the old regime, and because he never ever understood the club or the job he was taking on. None of those things can be said for Dalglish, and I'm perfectly happy no matter what happens for the rest of the season, simply because it feels like the club is back together and this is a fresh start we've been waiting for. It never felt that way for one minute under Hodgson.
