is Beattie is clearly an idiot. The quote:

"Unlike predecessor Rafa Benitez, Hodgson has inherited a team in decline".

Do you not remember the dross Houllier left us with and yet Rafa turned that into a champions league winning team. Im not one for calling for people to be sacked, but the fact is Roy should have never have got the job in the first place. Roy's reputation has been solely been built on what he did at Fulham. Without a showdow of a doubt, taking Fulham to a UEFA Cup final was amazing, but a mid table finish and to avoid relegation? Was this really that good? To go back further, title wins in Scandinavia - Wow, must be good. Manger of Switzerland and Finland - big footballing nations. A second runner up medal in UEFA Cup with Inter Milan, which they were the clear favorites for and finally Roy was the man who built the foundations that took Blackburn down over 10 years ago. This is hardly a CV that warrents a job like Liverpool.

As all Liverpool fan such as myself with half a brain, we knew that champ league for next couple of seasons was impossible. The one thing we wanted was an improvement in play, attititude, a team that was proud to play for the club. In his time, this has not been delivered, and is something that you should see signs of half way through the season. There has been none.

Roy may not have inherited the best of Liverpool squads, but it is still a lot better than the Fulham side he left.
