At Liverpool, there's a certain expectation of getting a result against any side in the league. Everybody hoped Roy would do well as he had better players at his disposal, but it never worked out.

How do you know that with Martinez that wasn't down to the resources he had at his disposal? He's young and there's very little evidence that "draws against 'bigger teams'" would be his goal at a larger club with better resources. Meanwhile Roy showed that that was his approach over decades of time. You're making a huge assumption there.

ynwa wrote:Then there's that neither have had the experience of a big club - Roy couldn't handle it, Martinez still hasn't attempted it - he might be a successful... but there's also no guarantee that he might not. We're not at a time to gamble.
Roy DID have experience at large clubs before though, he had time at Inter where he struggled. So there were previous indications that he would fail to adapt to his time at Liverpool. And part of his failure to adapt to a bigger club was his negative approach to the game, something Martinez wouldn't have working against him.

You're completely wrong here as well. Roy had previous issues with media outlets and fans, Martinez has had none. Roy got preferential treatment from the media because he's English, not because he's actually that likeable or savvy. Kenny had a solid relationship with the press during his first stint as manager. Martinez also has huge, HUGE support among the Wigan fans. He engendered himself to them and showed real loyalty and understanding of the club itself... something Roy's failed to do in several of his managerial positions.



Your comparisons are flat and faulty. I'm certainly worried and skeptical of whether Roberto Martinez could do the job for Liverpool but to compare him to Hodgson is just absurd.

I'm too inactive to keep the debate red, so apologies. I'm not ever going to agree though so it's probably a better idea anyway. Razz

One thing is certain though, Martinez is not yet ready for Liverpool - and imo will never be.

Seems to be a moot point in any case, as Rodgers appears to have gotten the job (or will in coming hours).
