Roy shutting out Dalglish chants

Hodgson had to listen to Liverpool fans chanting the name of former

player and manager Kenny Dalglish as goals from Ricardo Fuller and

Kenwyne Jones ended a six-match unbeaten run in Saturday evening’s

2-0 Premier League defeat at the Britannia Stadium. Asked if the

singing of Dalglish’s name disappointed him, Hodgson said: “I

suppose it does. That seems like it is going to be part of life at

Liverpool. “I think we are trying to do the best job we can in the

circumstances and I don’t know that that type of singing helps

anyone.” Hodgson is adamant it will take time to produce consistent

results with his current squad and is determined to fight on in the

job he only accepted in the summer. “If the club decide they want

to give the job to somebody else, then I’ll have to accept that, if

that day comes,” said Hodgson “We are short of players, as everyone

knows and we don’t have so many options. “The fans can chant for

whoever they want and it will be up to the club to decide what they

want to do. “There is nothing I can do about it and I can only

continue to do the best job I can do under these circumstances.” He

added: “I can’t get upset every time the fans chant someone’s name

and furthermore, we have millions of fans. “Maybe the travelling

fans are showing their frustration because we’ve lost, they are

entitled to do that. “Fans make their frustrations felt every time

we lose, but unfortunately they may have to do that a few more

times, because I can’t see us going through a season winning every

game.”
