" Bottom line . 16-Oct-10 07:24 AM
I think its time to set out our stall & state our objectives loud & clear for the boardroom to hear .
The managerial base line has to be 76 points & two semi final places .
Players should be fined accordingly for failing to achieve those objectives & rewarded accordingly the more they exceed those objectives .
We want or need no more spice boys , we want & need men with a pride in performance & will to win .
On top of that the manager has to play football we enjoy watching with the quality of players we admire .
We arent Malmo or Fulham & equally we shouldn't demand a league per season all I ask is that we are genuinely challenging in every competition we enter .
For a club the size of Liverpool in reality 76 points MINIMUM isn't a lot for us fans to ask , therefore to avoid the managers job being placed under review by the board 76 points should be the line of safety not a specific league position .
If that gets us top 4 well & good if it doesn't so be it .
Some seasons we will exceed that mark & some seasons just scrape enough to achieve it because of cup runs but for me it is an honest , realistic & fair target .
What say you ?
Yay or ney ? "
It doesn't say Hodgson is going to get anything let alone 76 points .
Try reading it .

Imran, we'd have to think or hope that the board along with Henry and his people are examining this very closely as we speak. Henry said he wouldn't be attending the game because he preferred to make his debut at Anfield with the home supporters, but I'd imagine after speaking to people around the club, coming to understand what the Merseyside Derby was all about and the importance, he stayed in England to partake..(Roy, with those tactics, having his team come out like that in front of the owners and board today would be like getting to your first day at work 2 hours late and then spilling hot coffee on your boss' lap..)
I'd have to think after learning about the derby, and actually experiencing it firsthand, and then seeing that limp, lifeless performance he's probably already got an itch to get things going in a winning direction. He's very familiar with a fierce rivalry similar to this in the states with the Red Sox v Yankees, and winning, if not a fight to the end is expected, nothing less..
This nightmare can't continue..
Regardless of the points tally at the end of the season or the minimum needed, the targets were and should still be, and remain so until mathematically or realistically impossible:
-Top 4 - Champions League.
-Europa League Champions.
-Final 4 - final of FA Cup.
If Top 4 is not achieved, Europa Champions and FA Cup become absolute MUSTS, not targets. I could see Torres possibly staying if we narrowly miss Champions League as a sign of progress, but if we don't even come close he must lift Silverware this season (other than a fork or spoon) or we've seen the last of him in Red, and perhaps the same may be said for Captain Fantastic..
Both painul thoughts to stomach.

If we chase the 4'th place we may as well chase our tail because we are letting other clubs define our season .
If we set a points tally that will get us within striking distance of a title challenge our destiny will be in our own hands .
