Liverpool FC: Now for some football!

Posted: October 16, 2010 in The Footie

So Laurel and Hardy have gone! Goodbye to bad rubbish!


Hicks and Gillett take the only dignified way out


Now we can ony wait and see what John Henry and NESV will bring to the club – hopefully not more bad faith and bad debt. But all Liverpool fans know that the problems of this great club are not all the fault of the former owners because we’ve suffered the spectacle of some truly abysmal football on the field from some very ordinary players who shouldn’t really be in a Liverpool shirt – and who were not signed by Hicks and Gillett. As for Roy Hodgson, I really don’t know. He’s a manager who looks out of his depth at the moment and I suspect he may have been brought in because he wouldn’t scare the horses at a tricky point in the club’s history. But maybe he should be given some more time to prove he’s up to the task of transforming fortunes on the field? If the club is still languishing in the relegation zone by Christmas then it may be time for him to go in the spirit of the season – peace and goodwill and all that.

From that point, we bring back King Kenny (or maybe Martin O’Neill?) to haul the club out of the relegation zone to at least mid-table and start the process of a complete overhaul of the squad in advance of next season. Forget the Europa Cup – it’s a liability for a team in Liverpool’s position right now.  Let’s just focus on who stays and who goes and build a proper Liverpool first XI and squad.

Who Stays? Reina, Carra, Skrtel, Stevie G, Torres (if he’s really up for it), Kelly, Kuyt, Cole, Shelvey, Spearing, Jovanovic, Pacheco and Ngog.

Who goes? Johnson, Agger, Aurelio, Konchesky, Kyrgiakos, Rodriguez, Wilson, Babel, Meireles, Poulsen, and Lucas.

Possible signings?  Who knows? Kevin Doyle from Wolves? Shane Long from Reading?  But we could do worse than have a look at Paddy McCourt at Celtic.

Can you imagine having him score a goal like that at the Kop end against one of the top four? Let’s face it, when was the last Liverpool player we’ve seen run through defenders? Ok so he’s not going to get away with it every week at the highest level but he has the ability and the potential. On the other hand, I’m not a Celtic fan and haven’t seen him on a bad day. He hasn’t got a regular place on the first XI so maybe there’s something in that?

Anyway, I’m sure other fans will have different views on all this so let me know what you think!  In the meantime, I’ll leave you with this little gem from the glorious past!
