The travelling support at the Britannia Stadium chanted the name of Kenny Dalglish and Hodgson was aware of the clamour for the Kop legend’s return to the hot seat.
“If the club decide they want to give the job to somebody else, then I’ll have to accept that, if that day comes,” said Hodgson
“We are short of players, as everyone knows and we don’t have so many options.
“The fans can chant for whoever they want and it will be up to the club to decide what they want to do.
“There is nothing I can do about it and I can only continue to do the best job I can do under these circumstances.”
He added: “I can’t get upset every time the fans chant someone’s name and furthermore, we have millions of fans.
“Maybe the travelling fans are showing their frustration because we’ve lost, they are entitled to do that.
“Fans make their frustrations felt every time we lose, but unfortunately they may have to do that a few more times, because I can’t see us going through a season winning every game.” (Sky Sports)
Sometimes I think of Roy Hodgson as that mad uncle that no one wants to enter into conversation with, for fear his craziness will take over. His assertion that Liverpool can’t go through the season winning every game seems to miss an essential point that the club’s supporters are trying to ram home. They don’t want or believe the club can win every game, they would however, if at all possible, like to win a fair few more than they lose, which seems fair enough.
If the former Fulham boss thinks he deserved to somehow avoid criticism for the woeful display at the Britannia Stadium simply because they had a decent ‘mini-run’ of good results then he may need a reality check. Whilst Liverpool were very good against Chelsea, a result that somehow loses it’s gloss after Sunderland’s 3-0 win at Stamford Bridge yesterday, the wins against Bolton, Napoli and Blackburn produces more questions than answers and were far from being good performances.
Hodgson is a lame duck and his ability to take one good result and somehow use it as a shield against a succession of poor performances is as pathetic as it is naive. The Premier League table doesn’t lie and Liverpool are not even in the top half and if somehow the Merseyside club loses at home to West Ham on Saturday then expect the axe to swing, in many ways perhaps a defeat will be the best thing all round as it would give the club a chance to reawaken from a very horrible nightmare.
Right now I would imagine the question wouldn’t be “Is Kenny Dalglish the right man for the job” the question would be “Why the hell is Roy still here?
