We knew it would not be easy, and that it was a big challenge both emotionally and in terms of sport. My love for ths city, for Merseyside and it's people, made me accept this challenge, but it is only when you are inside that you realise the magnitude of the task. From the very first day, my staff and myself worked as we always do, with commitment and and full dedication, we did not only have to get results, but we had to win over people's hearts. However, the financial situation and then the injuries that followed made things even harder.
