What’s going right?

Off the field the season so far has been great for Liverpool F.C., our despised former owners are gone and have been replaced by responsible ones who want bring back the glory days. In typical L.F.C. fashion it was not easy, however at the end we prevailed and Tom Hicks and George Gillett were sent packing to their little corner of the world.

The new owners (N.E.S.V.) under the leadership of John W Henry and Tom Werner have been very cautious in their approach so far, this is understandable. They have bought a club with great history and traditions in a sport that they didn't know much about. We maybe sometimes get a little ahead of ourselves and see what they did right after they purchased the Boston Red Sox. In Boston they fired the coach after a few days of taking over. This hasn't happened at Liverpool and instead they have backed Roy Hodgson and brought in Damien Camolli as Director of Football to assist Roy with the transfers.

What’s not?

We are currently in 9th place on the Premier League table, with just 22 points we are closer to the bottom three than we are to the top four, our goal difference of -1 speaks volumes. It has been a horrible first half of the season and our away form has been disastrous, we have only been able to pick up 5 points on the road from a possible 27. Many of us agree that Roy is not the right man for the job, he never was. Our opposition hasn't been that great either which makes it more painful that we didn't pick up more points.

Got the right manager?

No, Liverpool is too big a club for Roy Hodgson.

In typical L.F.C. fashion it was not easy, however at the end we prevailed and Tom Hicks and George Gillett were sent packing to their little corner of the world.

Star player?

Lucas Leiva

Who would you like to sell in January?

Christian Poulsen, Paul Konchesky and Milan Jovanovic.

Who do you want to sign?

Top of my list is Eden Hazard, the Belgian wonder kid. We really need a winger and a second world-class striker to partner Torres, but its a big worry that Roy will get the money to spend.

Best chant so far?

"Dalglish, Dalglish", traveling Kop frustrated with our away performance and calling for King Kenny to replace Roy Hodgson.

Best opposition player/team you’ve seen?

Based on all our games so far I would say Blackpool were the best opposition we have faced.

Biggest **** of the season so far?

Paul Konchesky & his mum

Any other news?

Fernando Torres has been out of form, he is also a proud new daddy too. Javier Mascherano left so he can sit on the Barcelona bench

End of season prediction?

If Roy stays I predict a difficult second half of the season and we have to face the possibility of no European football next season.
