Hodgson fears survival battle

Roy Hodgson has admitted that Liverpool could be a relegation dogfight come the end of the season, the under fire boss the Reds could find themselves at the wrong end of the league table following the weekends dismal 2-1 home defeat at the hands of Premiership new boys Blackpool. Hodgson has said that Liverpool's start to the campaign is unacceptable and suggest they could find themselves struggling if performances don't improve.

The Liverpool boss said, "Things are looking really, really bleak. It has been said that if you are in the bottom three, you are in a relegation fight, and I would have to go along with that," admitted Hodgson.

"But I'm not thinking too much about relegation with 31 games left. My concerns are that we are not playing to our full potential, or are only doing it in periods. In the first half we were punished for a lacklustre display.

"We had the ball as much as they did but didn't do anywhere near enough with it to satisfy my demands, the club's demands or the players' demands on themselves."

He also added, He said: "The fans are entitled to voice their frustrations, they are a frustrated group at the moment.

"I am the one responsible because I am the team manager. When the team does badly then the criticism is going to fall my way and I have to accept it." Best Blogger Tips
