When Roy Hodgson got his first home Premier League victory for Liverpool against West Bromwich Albion back in August, he would have hoped it would have been the first of many three points gained in front of the Anfield faithful. A largely forgettable game, Hodgson would have been glad to get his first win under his belt as much more memorable occasions lay ahead for the League Managers Association manager of the year. Instead, it was the first of only six league victories in front of the Kop and now the former Fulham has the chance to earn himself a rare piece of footballing symmetry.

MARTIN SKRTEL believes Kenny Dalglish's man-management skills have been key in turning Liverpool's season around.
Last week, we were again given evidence that the old Liverpool Way is back. John Henry and Tom Werner, after spending six months searching the globe, decided that the man they wanted for the Chief Executive post was already at Liverpool Football Club. This man was Ian Ayre who had for all intents and purposes already taken on the role. He was the man on this side of the Atlantic that John and Tom appointed on a temporary basis to oversee anything that if in the country they would have dealt with.
One of his earliest duties was to introduce the new temporary manager, Kenny Dalglish to the press and the public and hopefully changing that contract from temporary to permanent will be the first major duty in his tenure as Chief Executive
Ian is Liverpool born and bred so has supported the club from a very early age and I am sure like most of us that belong to the older generation can remember how the club was under the stewardship of T V Williams and Peter Robinson, who both led a very tight ship. There was none of the commercialism that surrounds the club today and they were there simply to sign the cheques for players and pay the bills.
