Gary McAllister has told The Birmingham Mail that although times are tough at the moment results wise, things will come good.
The assistant manager said: "It`s always hard but we must persevere. There`s a philosophy, the manager wants to play a certain way and we`ve got to trust that. Everybody`s pushing and pulling towards that. We want to get the ball down and pass it and win games playing football."
Adding "It`s still fairly new. There`s been a lot of change for the players. The players have worked under three different management groups this season, starting with Martin, then Kevin MacDonald and now Gerard.There`s a lot of change and we`ve got to be careful not to put too much change on them. We`re working away hard. things are improving. That doesn`t take away the fact we`re disappointed to lose to our local rivals, but we`ll be ok."
Meanwhile Jamie Carragher has told the Liverpool official site (Click Here ) that Houllier is the best manager he has worked under. Ouch, take that Roy Hodgson! lol
Carragher said "He wasn't so much a coach, he was a manager. He was fantastic in a team meeting in getting you pumped up for a game, getting everyone together and team spirit.'
Adding that it was Houllier that put Liverpool back on the map and on signings, 'There were signings that didn't work but look at Sami Hyypia - what a signing he was. Markus Babbel, Didi Hamann, Stephane Henchoz, Gary Mac - these signings. Look at what Heskey did in the treble season. Look at the way he made me and Danny Murphy better players and brought Steven Gerrard through.'
Leading us nicely on to the Houllier situation poll as suggested by d8ost.
Interesting results, 16% would like him gone now, 3% were undecided or on the fence, that left a massive 76% saying keep him and give him a chance and 5% to at least wait until we see what he does in the January transfer window.
Seems fair to me?! The Villa I know and love wouldn`t chuck out a manager who hasn`t had time to buy any of his own players AND MOST ESPECIALLY not when this particular manager has had up to 8 players not available for selection during his still very early reign at Villa.
It is a results game though, quicker we get a few more points on the board the better for everyone's nerves, including his I`m sure!
