Having just resigned from his job at Hoffenheim, Ralf Rangnick must have foreseen that he would have no problems in getting back into action as there was a job to be had in the Northwest of England. Then again, the so-called Professor didn't need to be a genius or a Gypsy tarrot card reader to figure that one out by himself.
Out of Liverpool's ten away league fixtures to date, the club have only won once under the guidance (if one could call it that) of Roy Hodgson. No wonder he referred to the club's win at the Reebok as a "famous victory". Maybe even Hodgson himself knew then that away wins would be hard to come by as long as he was in charge.
So, what else could we expect out of tonight's visit to Ewood Park?
At this stage, if the man was even half the gent that his media friends portray him to be, it was about time he took a piece of paper, find the nearest fax machine, punch in the number for Boston and emulate Rangnick by tendering his own resignation.
