He doesn't have to get into an argument with Ferguson, but he should at least back up Torres. All he would have to say is:

"it was a definite foul on Torres. Another referee may well have sent O'Shea off".

No controversy there. Instead he says fuck all.

I've said from the start that although disapointed with his appointment, I'm prepared to back Roy; however, nothing he's doing or saying at the moment though is helping to earn my respect.

Wonder what Torres makes of his managers refusal to defend him.

That there is completely, 100%, down to the 'custodians' and cannot be placed at Roys door. This level of signing will become the norm unless they are forced out. I agree that they arent good enough, but with little or no resources and yet a threadbare squad in a number of positions, what else could he do?
We could have picked up Salcido for less than we got Konchesky for. We could have kept Insua? I agree his hands are tied, but all the more reason to make the right calls with the little money that he does have.

He is a chicken. If he likes his friendsthe Media so much, he should at least use them properly. He should go out and blast that unwashed prick for his theatrical show yesterday, for diving every single time he touched the ball. The old drunk who accused Torres for cheating. He didn't defend Torres either...

Although he's all over the media with his boring crap, he didn't defend his players in the press when they're being attacked.

To me this shows a chicken attitude. But chicken+yesman=not good enough for me.

Well said mate ..  But at the moment he is trying to build a very flat team. He had 10 games and some are calling for his head already.

Good on Agger for coming out and saying that.

Why? Players shouldn't speak out against a manager on tactics- it's just disruptive. Terry in the World Cup being a prime example.

Ah. But he's foreign, so would have been so much better, it stands to reason...  ::)

Hodgson may not be a first choice (even of mine), but I'll at least give him a run of games before I start getting on his back.

So his record over thirty years in football management is not enough to convince you and you need him to manage us for half a season before making your mind up - Why? What is it in his past career that has you thinking he can make it better?

The words "straw" and "final" spring to mind. Inexcusable and unforgivable.

But then I suppose it's hard to stand up to the bully when you are wearing his gift of a £10k watch on your wrist, courtesy of one of the Mancs' sponsors.

I look at Hodgson, and in so many deeply uncomfortable ways both from a character and footballing perspective, he just reminds me of Eriksson.

And how different if Reina hadnt dropped the ball against Arsenal? Its all fine margins. You have to give him a chance. if after 20 games hes making the same mistakes, playing the wrong players then so be it.
Really good points, and O'shea might have been sent off too.

So should Roy "guarantee" fourth place?

No - he should guarantee us the title!!!! He can tell us it will take a few years, he can tell us we need new players but he should show some "Leadership" for the players and the fans.

That's what his great mate had to say about Roy's team and one of his players today.

I'm all for being friendly and professional but Mr Alex Ferguson's the exception. I'd much rather see the Rafa-style approach of pointing out all the twattish behaviour that man seems to get away with.

Actually, I'd like to see it taken a step further and have LFC's manager going in to Old Trafford spraying mace and calling him a c*nt.

No reason apart from, he's the manager of Liverpool FC. I've given every manager from Paisley onwards my full support, initally. Even Souness.

I also think that any other manager would have had the same sort of settling in difficulties as Hodgson has. He's got pretty much the same team as last year (minus Mascherano and Benayoun) and has spent less on players coming in than players going out. Every manager that could have taken the role would have been left with the same squad that came 7th last year. They would also have been subject to Purslow's purse strings.

Roy might not turn it around. He might be taking us in the wrong direction. But it's going to take more than 5 league matches for me to decide on that.

Roy really needs to back Torres 100% of the way. Red nose came out calling Torres a cheat.........with no shame or embarrassment towards the biggest cheat of the day....please stand up, or fall down again, Nani. Diving and cheating throughout the game. People in glass houses you shi* bag.

Red nose builds the hatred between the clubs because it fires his players up. I did feel yesterday Roy simply let them get away with it. Yes it's not classy or the 'Liverpool way' to speak about others but there is a way and a willing to do it in a smarter way.

Don't be worried about upsetting people Uncle Roy, defend our players to the hilt and they might defend you a little more on the pitch!!

So you missed the interview before the Steau game then where he was asked about the Torres criticism and he called the media (Redknapp's) comments 'so irrelevant' and said he couldn't believe the 'arrogance of people in the media' that suggest that Torres is off form because he's unhappy?

But keep cherry picking to suit the agenda.

Yes but Salcido doesn't "know" Uncle Roy, isn't matey with the old duffer, doesn't understand his style or methods, isn't English, and certainly doesn't regularly chat to John Terry at family get-togethers.

Yeah, you see we've got different views. That's shocking, isn't it?

He's a chicken for me. He should stand up to the abuse from the old drunk. He's suppose to be a Liverpool manager now. It's his duty.
I'd maybe accept his silence if Torres was actually diving, or if the opposition didn't have a prick like nani. But now he's got no excuse of being silent. You see it comes with the job. You have to defend your players.

But yeah, he was the wrong choice, he got the job for wrong reasons and now all is wrong.

One thing to act all uppity over something a gimp like Redknapp said, but when it counts and you have that despicable piece of human filth slagging your team and star striker off, Hodgson has stuck his head between his legs and shuffled off into the corner.

That's what people are so riled about - he's either the worst kind of arse-kisser, or a coward.

Exactly. Teh double standards here are criminal. Last season Carra and gerrard were blasted because on hearsay they were undermining the manager. Now people are patting Agger on the back for coming out with something which could be seen as undermining the manager. Incredible.

Do the players feel that the manager is incapable already though? If what Agger is said is true then where does that leave in regards to changing how we play? Roy was always going to have the impossible job but certain aspects in press conferences hasn't helped things.

No but he did manage Inter Milan in the UEFA Cup, reaching the final. He got Switzerland to the Euro 96 finals etc. It's not as if we've appointed Ian Holloway ffs. (Mind you, that would be quite funny...)

To be honest, if Roy just is the caretaker charged with steadying the good ship Liverpool until we can limp to less stormy financial waters then I'd actually prefer to have Holloway in the role - at least the football would be entertaining and would provide a fleeting distraction from the systematic destruction of the club.

But yes he does. You see there is a contradiction here. He seems to be all over the media. He's not a media-shy manager. So to ignore the old drunk's comments is embarassing. He's managing Liverpool, not Fulham.

Plus you fail to see what purple-nose's target is. Those comments may have an effect on how will referies treat Torres in the future. Calling him a cheat is very serious and such a comment should never go unanswered.

I support Roy but am a litle confused by this. On the one hand, there is nothing wrong with robust, no-nonsense defending, there are no prizes for poncing around and losing the ball on the edge of your own penalty area. But Roy has also spoken about posssesion, and hacking th ball away from defence only to lose possession and have the opposition at you again is not smart.


If you play the right sort of football you DON'T lose the ball at the back - give the players the confidence to do that and it will pay long term rewards. Effectively tell them they're shite and to hoof it out will give you payback in a different way.

It's not about Torres being a baby and I'm not saying he won't come out and defend Torres either. It's not each and every player also but Liverpool's icon. Fergie wouldn't have said a thing if it was Jovanovic et al but he did about Torres because it was a comment to belittle us even further!

I believe it's about being a unified team and we stick together whatever and defend the wronged. If we don't sound ourselves out then we just become one of the rest that nobody hears or cares about.........maybe the fear that we are an also ran these days is what is pressing these comments today!

i think the issue with people here is that we all love the club a lot and want to be behind the team, you can do that even in defeat if your team gives it a good go, but when you heard his defeatist comments on interviews and his mentality regarding defending of "just get rid" then you loose heart that Liverpool have resorted to this type of football, we are a big club with big ambitions and a big history, we aim to win everything, not be content with a draw at Birmingham etc...

That is a major problem, we don't expect great results at Birmingham or at Man Utd, but we expect some football, we expect our team to actually try to play, not rely on king carragher and his 3 musketeers to stand on Pepe's testicles defending for 90 minutes. Where's pass and move?

Instead of tearing them to shreds...grow some fucking balls will yers

I think Shankly would be well fucked off at Hodgson for not defending our players against vicious attacks from that dispicable c*nt.
We are a good team. We are a serious team. We want to win. We want to do the right thing.

Gets worse this. How many times did you see Ferguson, the most succesful manager in the country, flapping on the line and barking orders (and jotting down pointless thoughts every two minutes).

What you mean is you want him to be more like Rafa. Well he's not.

Did you have to attend a course to be able to tell what people are really thinking over the internet?

I think nobody fucking knows what Shankly would be doing if he was alive! Maybe if he was alive he would still be our manager so maybe this whole conversation is useless.
The past was amazing the future looks scary...

there are different ways to defend and to be fair both work one day...dont the next.
somedays the ref does you a disservice,other times it goes your way
now my major gripe with our negative supporters is that ,and to use an analogy....one bad apple will turn all the good apples in the barrel bad....
so ,why look for the negatives?...why dont you talk about the positives during hodgsons reign upto now?...
If you cant think of any,many....i suggest you go away and think about the alrms bells that should be ringing in your head right now?

oh and i actually think the way hodgson talks to press is quite impressive actually.
but that will depend on how you interprate it...and what your mood is at the outset doesnt it?
I mean if you weren't a proper red, (a blue nose,a manc etc) ,you would be looking for every little thing to pick him up on and see things that aren't there?...right?
its damaging!

He should have stood up to Skeletor yesterday.  Letting him call Nando a cheat while his little rent boy Nani was rolling round on the ground every farts end.  He's not helping the team by ducking the normal slagging match, or himself.  Wenger doesn't duck it, Mark Hughes is still getting crap off him at Fulham, Fucking hell he's still having digs at Rafa and he's not even in our league any more.  If Roy thinks that the "Sticks and Stones" approach is going to work then he's wrong.
We're gonna win the league-omiter
