Houllier’s complicated legacy

My review of the 2000/01 treble season, published on This is Anfield, prompted quite a reaction on Twitter. Many people agreed with my argument that Gerard Houllier deserves to be celebrated more on the Kop, for his achievements, with dozens of replies and more than 650 likes.

However, some can’t forgive errors in the transfer market and in particular his decision to sell Robbie Fowler. For me, Gerard made errors. That’s beyond debate. But, I would argue that his achievements far outweigh the mistakes. Houllier deserves a more positive legacy. Do you agree?
