Hodgson Fails To Admit Tactical Mistakes

Liverpool boss Roy Hodgson admits his side's miserable start to the season is unacceptable after they slumped to an embarrassing 2-1 home defeat to Blackpool. The Reds find themselves rooted in the bottom three after making their worst start to a season in over 50 years. Charlie Adam's penalty and Luke Varney's strike on the stroke of half-time proved to be enough to give Premier League new boys Blackpool a famous win and pile the pressure on Hodgson. "It is a very bad start to the season, a start we could never have envisaged," bemoaned Hodgson. "It is a start we are really unhappy with and we have got to live with it that's the way it is. Strange season "It is a strange season the way it has gone so far. "We are very, very unhappy that after four home games and three away we have six points and that is not acceptable. "We have a lot of work to turn the situation around. "I thought first half Blackpool played well, but we were not near anywhere where we should be," added Hodgson. "Unfortunately we down to a second goal on the stroke of half-time, but in the second half you see a totally different team. "All credit to Blackpool for holding onto their lead and for taking the lead 2-0."
