And SGE is tipped to take over at Fulham.
Would you prefer Sven Goran Eriksson instead?
Nope. Would prefer Van Gaal or Bielsa, and - at a long shot - Hiddink. If the board thought about replacing Benitez even half-assedly then they should have lined up someone very good.

Your not going to get such a high class manager untill the off the pitch side is sorted. Once you have new chairmen, then you'll be able to bring in a higher class manager.
Only reason Benitez went now IMO is because the working relationship had completely deteriorated, otherwise he'd be there until the club was sold.

You have valid points, but at the same time it still doesn't mean Hodgson is good enough for Liverpool - even in this climate IMO. He is a Tottenham/Villa type moreso than any club really vying for top honours. There are still guys like Pellegrini, Rijkaard, Deschamps and others I'd take over Roy.

Problem is, I doubt any of them would take you, until the ownership issue is sorted. Who'd want to walk into a job where money is limited, and there's the constant presence of the club being sold and a new owner wanting his manager instead of you?
Dude Rijkaard is coaching in Galatasary and Deschamps is in Marseille. We haven't fallen that far off the footballing map. There are murmurs of Bielsa also and all 3 would likely want to come. Again, Hodgson should be a last resort, a we-could-not-get-anyone-else kind of appointment. And if the club was in that dire straits why wuold Hodgson himself want to come? Too much exaggerating going on here. If Liverpool were that desperate they'd have kept Benitez.
