Former Liverpool boss gets a suitable post

Well isn't it nice when everything turns out so everyone's happy?

Roy Hodgson is a decent man and a decent coach, so no-one would begrudge him a manager's post in the Premier League.  Just so long as that role isn't at Liverpool.

Just a month after his sacking he has taken up the hotseat at West Brom, which will surely be a more comfy fit for all concerned.   After all, he's got a proven track record of helping average club teams punch above their weight.

Meanwhile Kenny Dalglish has coaxed Liverpool into a four game winning streak in the league, very quickly moving the club up to sixth in the table.  All is not rosy in the garden just yet, but optimism is back, attacking football is back and a chance to build for the future is back.

Liverpool Football Club got a manager suited to its standing and West Brom Albion probably did better than it otherwise would, in terms of attracting an established and respected coach.

Isn't that nice?

He should be a success. After all, he is one of the most respected coaches in Europe having managed such clubs as Neuchatel Xamax, Viking and Malmo.
