LFC News 4.20.12: The Return of the Hodgson

Woy vs The King

The Baggies come to Anfield with former LFC caretaker Roy Hodgson on the touchline. Kenny Dalglish seems to think he'll receive a warm welcome. Perhaps because their Premier League record at LFC are about the same? I think there will be some applause due to the fact he is no longer our manager.

As always please follow @anfieldasylum on Twitter and get into the discussion on the blog. I have seen several new members post and I must say I have enjoyed reading their fresh perspectives! Let's keep this great community growing! YNWA!

Expect Sam's match preview soon.

On another note, sorry I have not been able to post news this week. I have been traveling a lot this week.

On to the news.

German side Hamburg are interested in Dirk also via independent.co.uk

I think it is pretty immenent that we are going to lose Dirk over the summer. I would like to see us shop him around. I am reading estimates of £1M. That is way too low. I think a fair assessment is around £4M-£5M given his workrate and versitility.
