Sorry, I`ve tried - I`m trying - to have faith and see the positives of Gerard Houllier and although we have become shambolic on the pitch, I am trying to point out that the players are the ones on the pitch, our back four are meant to be international defenders for instance, so how come they are playing like pub players right now? It can`t all be placed at the door of the manager - any manager - but obviously, at some point there has to be a change in results, as that is what this game is all about. Something is very very far from being right at the moment and some are saying 'I told you so` in the Villa forums.
The appointment wasn`t exactly universally accepted and it didn`t bring about much excitement, but for me giving the timing of the walk of the last manager - a spiteful and vindictive and club shafting timing by the way - I did work at talking myself around from a shrug to 'excitement` at some of the positive things being said about Houllier.
Things like this however, will not help his cause one bit, the away fans were even taking the St Michael of their own team last night as reported on the BBC site: Villa's fans did themselves far more credit than their players - although the heavy sarcasm and gallows humour aimed at their team will have hurt Houllier as he tries to win over those still sceptical about his appointment.
Anyway, the main point of this is Houllier`s comments on the Liverpool official site 'It's difficult to say but I prefer to lose 3-0 to Liverpool because I like Liverpool."
We don`t Gerard, we don`t like losing full stop and certainly not against Liverpool. What you think in private is fine and dandy, but to say that after our away faithful travelled up in the freezing conditions? No, that is insulting.
