Liverpool legend Neal: Hodgson will regret turning on Kop

Liverpool legend Phil Neal says manager Roy Hodgson may live to regret his attack on the Kop yesterday. Hodgson turned on Anfield's fans after defeat to Wolves, saying he never felt they had ever supported him.

Neal warned: "Hodgson could rue saying those words about the fans, that they haven't backed him.

"Against Wolves there was 90 minutes without a shot on goal, no pressure, and no excitement for the fans. And that's down to the players and down to Hodgson."

Neal was as disillusioned as the rest of the Anfield faithful at what he saw against Mick McCarthy's strugglers, and insists it was simply not good enough.

He also told talkSPORT: "We couldn't believe what we we were seeing. We didn't put any pressure on Wolves. There was no cohesion and no-one looked as they were enjoying playing.

"We didn't look a team and that's the frightening thing.

"Shankly and Paisley would have been turning in their graves to see that pathetic team effort."
