I agree with that. Unlike Hodgson, he certainly hasn't rubbed LFC fans up the wrong way with the words that have come out of his mouth so far.:D

I've noticed a lot of Liverpool fans say Hodgson had to be sacked because he'd taken their team nearer the relegation zone than the top four. After today's defeat you're now 4 points above the...

I agree with you. Yet again he's just playing to the gallery because he's scared stiff of UKIP and his own Eurosceptic wing of the Tory party. I just wish Cameron would just have the courage of his...

Are you saying The Argentines consider The Falklands/Malvinas to be a part of Tierra del Fuogo province? Aren't the two quite geographically distant from each other?

I wouldn't say Italy's regions are tiny. Yes, some of them are small and one in particular, The Aosta Valley, is tiny but in general most Italian regions are on average about the size of Scotland or...
