So the most predicted and clamoured for sacking in the history of the Premier League has finally happened. Woy has gone.
Liverpool have announced that manager Roy Hodgson has left by mutual consent. The club chose to ignore our well-reasoned arguments against giving him the boot, except perhaps the one which suggested he would walk if asked nicely.
If anything, the timing does seem slightly strange, coming so soon before the FA Cup game against Manchester United. If anything, doing it on Thursday would seem the obvious time. But hey, let’s face it, it was coming.
What is interesting is that the club have announced the departure as a mutual consent.
Come on guys, who are you kidding? He was sacked, fired, asked to leave.
Do the following quotes sound like a man who mutually agreed that he should go? He said:
“I am very sad not to have been able to put my stamp on the squad, to be given the time to bring new players into the club in this transfer window and to have been able to be part of the rebuilding process at Liverpool.”
Kenny Dalglish will manage the club until the end of the season. His last managing job? Celtic in the year 2000.
As we noted in yesterday’s post, if Dalglish flops where do Liverpool fans have to run to?
