This is ANFIELD, Liverpool: The Liverpool fan base is the most knowledgable, humble and sophisticated in the country, if not in the entire world. You'll Never Walk Alone, in Liverpool. Before Roy Hodgson was 'relieved' of his Anfield Command, weren't the Anfield faithful, singing "Hodgson for England".
Roy Hodgson guided West Bromwich Albion to their first win since 1967 at the Anfield Stadium where he was once employed. However, there were rows of empty seats and a stream of Liverpool supporters scurrying to the exits and frustrated groans at the final whistle. The Anfield 'faithful' had barely changed in the 16 months since Roy Hodgson's last visit.
Following Liverpools 1-0 defeat to West Bromwich Albion, with the might ex Liverpool Boss masterminding Liverpools defeat, is it no surprise then, that the Anfield 'faithful', that remained, have been chanting, "Hodgson for Liverpool"
Roy had taken WBA to within one point of Liverpool at a fraction of the cost. While Kenny Dalglish has spent big, Roy Hodgson has man managed and 'wielded' together a technically tough squad into a fighting unit. Now fans are pushing the Liverpool FC to fire 'KD' and go after 'Woy', as he is affectionately called on the Kop.
Roy Hodgson enjoy a 191-day stay as Liverpool Manager that began in July 2010. Since his departure, Kenny Dalglish has reputedly spent over £115.8 Million, ensuring that LFC have ONE MORE POINT than a very "bad" Roy. So by any reasonable "standards", if Kenny Dalglish is a "great" Manager, Roy should be worshiped as the Messiah of Football! During Roy Hodgson's brief reign, his total spending was £23.3 Million. No wonder the Scousers on the Kop, the Koppites, are now calling for the 'second coming' of Roy Hodgson, the Messiah...
As one Koppite put it;
"Last week the 'deluded' were proclaiming, "Give King Ken another year", "We still are the best English team", "Andy Carroll is quality". Now we have lost to WBA, can the 'deluded' see that Liverpool aren't going anywhere and our cup campaigns are covering worrying cracks. Why is John Henry trusting 'King Kenny' with all his money?"
"Woy for Liverpool, Woy for Anfield, Woy for the Reds. Woy is the Line Man of Anfield."
