Liverpool chairman Martin Broughton has shocked the world with his bizarre decision to elect ex-Hull boss Ian Dowie the managerial position at Liverpool Football Club.
"There were not many candidates available," Broughton said in an interview. "It was either him or Guus Hiddink, a no-contest really."
Liverpool fans have questioned the chairman, however his decision remains the same.
"People, do you honestly think you know how to run a football club better than me?"
Ian Dowie is happy with the job. "I am just happy to take over as Liverpool gaffa. I'm no Rafa Benitez, but I think I can take Liverpool places. However I can't guarantee any trophies, as I truly am a crap manager."
Upon hearing this, the Liverpool faithful went mad and demanded an explanation from the chairman.
"Yes, I heard the statement that was said by Mr. Dowie, and I stand by him 100%. However I disagree with him quoting he "can't guarantee any trophies" as we will be giving him a warchest of 45 million pounds, plus any player sales."
The now Liverpool manager has been asked his realistic aims for the season. "Well the first thing I aim to do is get some of my Hull boys into the squad. I will arrange a swap deal for Hugo Altidore and will offer Fernando Torres up front. I also aim to bring in Paul McShane and will offer Glen Johnson plus the 45 million I have been gifted. I just cannot wait to start."
The season begins in two months, will Dowie succeed?
