And just what hs O`Neill done to deserve such a prestigious post? Ok he was successful in Scotland but lets be honest the standard of football there is not high and winning the Scottish title is akin to winning the Championship or even Division One. He did win the League Cup with Leicester but I`m sure that Liverpool fans dream of more prestigious trophies. As for Villa they have never finished higher than 6 and although they have made both the FA and Carling Cup finals they have never won a trophy under O`Neill. And anyway why should he want the job. He`s canny enough to know that the money needed to rebuild Liverpool currently isn`t there and until it is the sort of frustrarions that marred his last few months at Villa would resurface at Anfield. The fact is until Liverpool can find new owners who are willing to make large sums of money available even their great history may not be enough to attract a big name manager.
Why would anyone want a job in football management now? - the game is run by the media & accountants looking for an offshore investment - it's not about the actual sport anymore.
When Leicester won the League cup it was a big deal for them (and LFC when we won it) because we put full strength sides out and players wanted to win because it meant something.
Fully agree with you - you want to win 'more prestigeous' trophies because the top clubs make a mockery of the LC competition.

Why would anybody want a job in football management, I can think of £millions of reasons. What I can't understand though is why Hodgson took the job on, he's not short of a bob or 2. He's an intelligent guy, and as many of you guys have said before, if new owners aren't found pronto, even Jimmy Tarbuck couldn't sort the despondency out.
