News just in – everybody in Liverpool hates Roy Hodgson
Ahh, cheer up, Roy
Liverpool would have been a technicolour hub of excitement on Saturday night, because Rebecca from X Factor did a song by The Beatles. Here’s why that’s amazing:
1. She’s from Liverpool.
2. So were The Beatles.
Had she popped in some Cilla Black teeth and sang live from the belly of Anfield, they would have had to call a public holiday. Anyway, good for Rebecca, nice for The Beatles. Now for the bad news: no one likes Roy Hodgson. No one. This from our pals at Ladbrokes:
Not only does he have to deal with the animosity shown by every Evertonian Roy Hodgson comes into contact with, the Liverpool manager faces the wrath of the red side of the city too.
Before the 3-0 victory over West Ham last Saturday, Liverpool fans had been voting throughout the week on various Liverpool websites and 95% of them were in agreement that Roy Hodgson was not the man to lead Liverpool forward.
And Hodgson is currently a huge price at 9/1 to be the next Premier League manager to leave following the comments from the Anfield faithful.
The 3-0 win has seen Hodgson’s position strengthened somewhat, but it’s a testament to the fan’s lack of faith in their manager that the general consensus following the game was ‘why didn’t we score more?’
Hodgson and his side travel to Tottenham on Sunday for their next Premier League encounter before hosting Aston Villa at Anfield in a Monday night fixture on December 6th.
With calls mounting for Hodgson to resign, it would take six points from those two games to start winning back some faith from the Liverpool fans.
Should Hodgson fail to take six points from those two games, the calls will get louder still and the Liverpool board will have no choice but to assess Hodgson’s position.
Speculation surrounding Carlo Ancelotti’s position at Chelsea may stop Hodgson becoming the next Premier League manager to leave, and Ancelotti has been cut from 20/1 to 4/1 to be the next manager to leave.
