8 of the 11 players that lost to wolves were in the team that beat Real Madrid 4-0.
He didn't have that hard of a job - the truth is, he's a very bad manager with regressive tactics, who was voted in by the press and Purslow.
If his signings of Konchesky and Poulsen weren't enough to fill you with dread, let alone the fact he also wanted carlton cole and robert huth, then
seriously, you need to stop watching Sky.
A career win percentage of less than 40% with an away wins record of less than 20% tells you all you need to know.
He messed up at every big job he had - the inter fans booed him, and he got Blackburn relegated.
Benitez on the other hand, has a career win percentage of well over 50% and during his Liverpool time had a win percentage 2nd only to Paisley in all
competitions, and 3rd behind Paisley and Dalglish in the league.
As usual, the media will portray him as being hard done by - but the fact is that the media are clueless when it comes to football, and the only fans
who really got behind his appointment were those who get their opinions from Sly Sports.
Any fan who knew anything about football knew exactly what what going to happen.
It's not down to the fans that he left, and contrary to popular media opinion the squad is pretty good, having sent 14 players (more than any other
team in the EPL) to the world cup.
It was all down to Hodgson, and his tactics of playing 2 banks of 4 very close together, inviting the opposition on and then hoping to get lucky with
a hoof up to Torres.
He bought a CM then played him on the right wing, wouldn't play Agger because he actually plays the ball out of defense, and got bullied into playing
Gerrard in CM which is probably his worse position.
That coupled with persisting with the dreadfull konchesky, and getting rid of 2 of our best youngsters to bring him in was terrible business.
The fans who wanted him out were educated fans, who knew they were seeing pure dross, week in, week out and for that reason they wanted him gone.
