    All is not good at Liverpool.

    Either Tom Hicks shuts the **** up and let Benitez does what he does best or Benitez will get fired.

    Strikes me that its Benitez that should shut up, what is with managers lashing out their employers at the moment. He says that the owners dont understand his transfer needs yet they seemed pretty understanding when they allowed him to splash the cash pre-season, perhaps he does not understand the fiscal constraints of a pro football team.

    Anyone have anything on Club America's Memo Ochoa going to Manchester United? I read that they want him as VanderSar's replacement but America do not want to part with him.
    Seems like Mexico is finally wising up and is having their players go to Europe and play against the best in the world. It would be a shame to not give Ochoa a shot to play against the best teams in the world.

    Benitez had more cash to spend this offseason, but he also sold players to make Liverpool's net spend at 26M.

    I don't have the time to make a list, but average net spend per season since he took over 4 years ago is around 15-20M.

    Hicks and Gillette made a promise to Benitez's that his signings will be based on the players he needs, and not based on how much they would cost.

    More importantly, out of the 3 players he wanted for the upcoming transfer window, 2 of them are free transfers. Also, he was planning on selling two of his current players to fund future purchases.

    Benitez took it a step too far IMO, but the ignorance of Gillette and Hicks about the business of football, and an incompetent Chief Executive of the club, are all factors causing this rift.

    Aren't Jared Borgetti, Dos Santos, Rafael Marquez Mexicans?

    I just think that the British transfer market is not quite at the halcyon levels of the last three years. But you make some good points regarding the net spend.

    Both guys are probably in the wrong here. It's clear that Hicks doesn't understand the way soccer works yet but if I were Benitez I probably wouldn't bite the hand that feeds. He has a great spot and while what he said was not wrong by any means, I probably wouldn't want to rock the boat in public.
