Rafa s got more lives than a cat

Posted by admin

It seems every few matches that I think to myself ‘that must be it for Rafa! ‘  He is making a mess of things on a very consistent basis but he seems to keep getting away with it.   It surely can’t last much longer.  His next two matches are both massive tests of character.  Stoke away is not for the faint hearted at the best of times. He will do well to get a draw there. Then a few days later its Spurs at home. That is usually a home win but at the moment Spurs are looking considerably stronger than the reds.  

If they were to lose either of these I would think they could say goodbye to the champions league spot, particularly the Spurs game as it really widen the gap between the two teams.

Unfortunately for Benitez he has Torres and Gerrard injured again for the matches.  He can’t pull in his most imaginative player Benayoun either as he is also injured.  Not that he has been using him as much as he could anyway. He is frustratingly unadventurous in his philosophy.Live Football Online

His biggest problem though is that he really has no goal threat without those three players.  He might get an odd goal from Kuyt or Babel, if selected, but they can’t be thinking they will score regularly.

Unfortunately he has sold plenty of strikers that are still playing well in the Premiership and not replaced them.  He should be embarrassed that Craig Bellamy, Peter Crouch, Robbie Keane, Emile Heskey, Michael Owen are all top strikers at clubs that are doing better than Liverpool.  

Its all very well saying he needs to be given money to invest in players but at some point he is going to have to be held accountable for wasting the resources he has already been given. It is undeniable that the strength of the squad has diminished in his charge.
