Can you imagine after Liverpool play Fulham and Liverpool loose that game, Roy Hodgson comes out and says, “If I have got to lose 3-0, I would prefer it to be to them as I like Fulham.” I am sure we as Liverpool fans would be just as pissed of as the Aston Villa fans are right now. After Liverpool beat Aston Villa, Houllier said those words after the game. He said he was joking but the Aston Villa fans did not take it lightly and many of them are upset right now. Houllier has had to come out and explain his statement to the fans.
Who can blame Houllier if he still loves Liverpool? We are the greatest club in the world after all. Houllier even touched the ‘This Is Anfield’ sign before he walked out onto the field as manager of Aston Villa.
Now how would you react if Roy Hodgson says something similar to that after we play Fulham?
