While the general consensus is that King Kenny"s return is the answer to Liverpool fans prayers, there is a surprising amount of sympathy towards former boss Roy Hodgson and his reign at Anfield. Some are questioning whether Liverpool"s demise is solely down to the presence of Roy Hodgson and whether some of the players should be taking some of the responsibility for the plight the club find themselves in.
Football FanCast ran a number of polls in the wake of Roy Hodgson"s departure on Saturday, Jan 8 morning to ask Liverpool fans whether they felt that Hodgson was taking over a club already in crisis. Some 36 percent of Liverpool supporters believe that Roy was taken on a poisoned chalice from the off, while a massive 64 percent felt that it was Hodgson"s own doing.
Did Roy Hodgson inherit a poisoned chalice?
* No - it was his own making (64%)
* Definitely (36%)
FootballFanCast also asked fans to comment on why they think it has all gone wrong in the last six months. While 40 percent of supporters pinpointed Roy Hodgson as the sole reason for the mess Liverpool find themselves in; a combined 53 percent attributed the problem to certain players underperforming and their bad attitude.
What is the reason for Liverpool's poor form this season?
* Roy Hodgson (40%)
* Underperforming players (34%)
