    Hi 200%, as a Liverpool fan, (stop that hissing at the back!) I have to take umbrage at your little point about GH.

    He inherited an already outstanding team from Paul Le Guen, and literally improved on that (and has done a very good job, it must be said.)

    Now, unlike some of my brethren, I was sad to see GH go, but the time was very def right for him to depart. This was because, although (imo) he is still an outstanding coach, (as he has continued to prove at Lyon) he had taken ‘pool as far as they could go (and lost the backing of some members of the board with his rather woeful purchasing policy.) Also, the style of Liverpool’s play was bloody awful, (which ironically is at direct odds with the vibrant, positive play that Lyon consistantly show in Europe.)

    So, whilst I agree that he is still a good coach, I must disagree that it was the wrong thing for him to leave Liverpool.
