The search for a new manager may finally be over with Roy Hodgson having reportedly flown back to the UK from South Africa in order to complete the deal. Hodgson was working at the World Cup as a pundit for the BBC and he was stalling on the Liverpool deal as he was waiting to see if England would not make it to the knock out rounds of the World Cup in which case he had hoped to be name the new England manager.
Now that England are through to play Germany in the knock out stages, it does not look like Capello will leave his England job. So Roy will be back in the UK and looking to take over the reigns at Anfield.
Personally, I still belive that Dalglish should be named the new manager but I guess we just have to see what Roy can do. How will the Kop respond to his appointment? Will we quickly come up with a new song for him or will it take a while for him to find a place in our hearts?
The first thing Hodgson will have to do if he does get the job is to keep our best players. Will he be able to convince the likes of Gerrard, Torres, Mascherano and Johnson that the future is bright under him at Anfield? It will not be easy for him. If our star players do decide to leave then hopefully Roy will be given all the money from their sales and he can use it to bring in new players.
The quicker we get a new manager in the better, as the best players are going to be scooped up quickly in the market as they start to get knocked out of the World Cup.
