After their worst ever start to a Premiership campaign, speculation continues to increase that new owners of the club, New England Sports Ventures (NESV) may not be prepared to wait too long to find a replacement for Roy Hodson who has guided Liverpool to only 6 points from a possible 24, leaving them in 19th place in the table.
Rightly or Â wrongly, some sources are already advising that they understand that search to already be under way by NESV, to create a short list of replacement candidates as Roy Hodgson finds himself needing to deliver quickly in the coming games to revitalise Liverpool’s season and keep himself in charge. The side at present looks both unmotivated and unhappy with the tactics asked of them to deploy, confidence levels seemingly falling game by game.
While some voices continue to ask for patience in the Liverpool way of supporting a manager, a number of polls show that number to be under 20% and falling, staggering figures in their own right. As with any clubs possible managerial change, the list of candidates can fluctuate frequently. At present the names favoured are as follows but who would you choose?
