Re: Bin Dippers (Centenary Edition)
I reckon your whole argument is bollocks. Its all hypothetical but give me a manager that could work wonders with the current crop of players, Dalglish?!?!? Dream on. What kind of fuckin magic was he gonna come up with, was he bringing his own funds to the table or something. The fairytale option wont work either.
You can't expect a new manager to come in and be ok with the squad Benitez put together either. Yeah theres internationals in the team but theres internationals in every team in the premiership, that argument is a load of tosh. They got to WC final with their respective teams. Teams that show a polar opposite reflection on how to play football.
He had to make changes somehow, granted they may not be what you want/need but its not as if he had wads of cash to spend on more Internationals!! the club has been in freefall since the beginning of last season, the players werent good enough with Benitez and theyre worse off now.
Fair play to Hodgson for braving the job, Im sure he regrets taking it now. Its the same with Capello, one minute he was the saviour, then he became public enemy no.1, now England are winning again and everythings hunky dory. A month ago it was Lucas, last week it was Hodgson and now all of a sudden it was really Hicks/Gillette all along, make up yer mind ffs, these excuses are ridiculous. Sooner or later you're going to have to face the fact that you are a mid-league team at best who are struggling to stay above water with arguably the worst Pool squad in years. Oh yeah, and Leeds had a team full of internationals too!
loving the Mancs getting all excited that we could get relegated - lol!
when the sale is 100% confirmed I fully expect our performances to improve
Id be shocked if they went down but its not beyond the realms of possibilty right now.
I also fail to see how the sale will improve on field performances, unless some of the Red Sox are gonna tog out for ye, get a bit of muscle back in the team.
smellmycheese is bang on too.
