iverpool manager Roy Hodgson admits he will always face comparison to his predecessors after seeing his side's recent revival falter at Stoke.[LNB] Hodgson had to listen to Liverpool fans chanting the name of former player and manager Kenny Dalglish as goals from Ricardo Fuller and Kenwyne Jones ended a six-match unbeaten run in Saturday evening's 2-0 Premier League defeat at the Britannia Stadium.[LNB]Asked if the singing of Dalglish's name disappointed him, Hodgson said: "I suppose it does. That seems like it is going to be part of life at Liverpool.[LNB]"I think we are trying to do the best job we can in the circumstances and I don't know that that type of singing helps anyone."[LNB]Hodgson is adamant it will take time to produce consistent results with his current squad and is determined to fight on in the job he only accepted in the summer.[LNB]"If the club decide they want to give the job to somebody else, then I'll have to accept that, if that day comes," said Hodgson[LNB]"We are short of players, as everyone knows and we don't have so many options. [LNB]"The fans can chant for whoever they want and it will be up to the club to decide what they want to do. [LNB]"There is nothing I can do about it and I can only continue to do the best job I can do under these circumstances." [LNB]He added: "I can't get upset every time the fans chant someone's name and furthermore, we have millions of fans. [LNB]"Maybe the travelling fans are showing their frustration because we've lost, they are entitled to do that. [LNB]"Fans make their frustrations felt every time we lose, but unfortunately they may have to do that a few more times, because I can't see us going through a season winning every game."
