Hoping for a win today.
A lot has happened at Liverpool football club over recent months, and I've deliberately kept quiet about it. I'm really not a fan of the current trend of "hire and fire" when it comes to managers, stability is what's required.
I obviously don't know what went on behind the scenes with Rafa, but it does appear that for whatever reason, his relationship with some of the players had soured, probably not helped by the then owners. When Hodgson was appointed, at the time, I couldn't really name a manager I wanted, until I heard that Kenny's had thrown his hat in. However, the word was that LFC didn't want to go back, and possibly allow Kenny to tarnish his reputation. Hodgson is clearly a good man, but some of his comments did start to set alarm bells ringing with me. What made it worse, was some of his tactics and decisions during games. It clearly wasn't working, and showed no signs of improving.
A change was needed. With the appointment of Kenny, the new owners have made the right move. Since his start, every comment to the press has been spot on, his tactics on the pitch and the style of football have been in line with how supporters expect LFC to present themselves. What's needed now is that first win. I hope it arrives today at lunchtime.
