With Hodgson and his men enduring a slow start to the season, a lot has been said by a lot of people. Questions have been asked, but the answers don’t seem to be there. I don’t seem to understand the deal, though.
it’s just been a month since Roy took over. we’ve made it to the group stages after tough matches against Trabzonspor. we drew our first league game at home against Arsenal, a match which we deserved to win after Joe got wrongly red carded in the first half and the damn sun which gifted Arsenal a late, late equalizer. City was a rather forgettable game, but that’s just ONE match there. I’ve come across a lot of fans blaming Roy for setting up a 4-4-2 formation, but wasn’t that what everyone wanted to see for a long time? Don’t tell me you weren’t. I can see a lot of teams going to Eastlands and struggling to get points. well fair enough, they’ve spent over a £100 million on their squad and it was always going to be hard.
Another thing that I’ve been reading a lot recently is regarding the signing of Konchesky and “how far we’ve fallen”. That is plain simple bollocks. there aren’t many left backs around and Konchesky, who is by no means a world class left back, certainly has experience on his side and will give us the much needed width and attacking we need from the left. Agger did brilliant, but wasn’t the best going forward. not his natural position, I don’t blame him, he did well. The thing that’s bothering me is how everyone seems to be blaming Roy for signing Konchesky and letting two young stars leave in the opposite direction. Yes, I was a gutted to see Dalla Valle leave but I guess time was running out and we needed a left back really bad.
as for Konchesky coming to Anfield, I think it could be a good signing. Roy worked with him for about 2 and a half years so he knows what he’s about. we could not have signed a better left back because WE HAVE ABSOLUTELY NO MONEY! as simple as that. Roy did a good job in convincing Joe Cole to come to Anfield, he has signed a dynamic player in Meireles and a decent enough Konchesky to fill in at left back.
time will tell if these signings were good or not, but I urge all Liverpool fans to have some patience please. let everyone say whatever they want to say, but we need to give our new manager and his new style of play and tactics some time to gel. it’s just been a month for crying out loud. voice your opinions regarding the players, the manager, everything. but please, patience is key to our season. give Roy and his boys time. Please.
