Liverpool fans have been reflecting on how far their side has come from the woeful days of Roy Hodgson back in 2010, in comparison to where the team is today.
Hodgson, who went on to manage the England national team, was sacked by the Merseyside club after just six months in charge and won only seven out of 20 Premier League games. He took over from club legend Rafael Benitez in July 2010 and could only guide the club to 12th in the table.
Is Dejan Lovren underrated?
The club’s owners felt it was appropriate to take swift action after losing 3-1 against Blackburn Rovers and brought in club legend and former manager himself, Kenny Dalglish.
In comparison to where Liverpool currently stand, it appears to be a different world as Jurgen Klopp’s men sit eight points clear at the top of the Premier League and are consistent title challengers after accumulating a 97-point tally last season.
Klopp also guided his team to a sixth Champions League crown after beating Tottenham 2-0 in Madrid in May.
If you weren’t supporting Liverpool through the appalling Hodgson years then please have a bit of respect for those fans who were and came before you.

Supporters did not enjoy looking back at the Hodgson and showed their full respect to those that stuck behind the team at the time. One fan said that he “still needs counselling” after his six months in charge.
Here you will find some of the best comments from Liverpool fans:

Dark, dark days. Northampton being described as a “formidable challenge” was a particular lowlight.
