What an insult. I don't know what Houllier did to you.The manager he reminds me most of is Houllier.
Both came with a background of sophisticated continental attacking football. Given a missive to rebuild a faltering and porous top side with a weak mentality.
Does so with a fearful defensive approach, freezing out good players who could be an asset in a more expansive side, overly reliant on a pacey goalscorer for points. Spent biggest in their first summer to get a top defensive midfielder in. Heart in the right place though.
Houllier had more tricks up his sleeve tactically though and a much better squad to work with.
