    And selling him obviously has a lot to do with it as well.

    A couple of the last few purchases Benitez has made has done Liverpool in. Doesn't seem like he has a ton of money to spend, so when you get flops like Keane, Babel, and Dossena, that hurts even more.

    To be fair, I don't think anyone expected Keane to be such a huge bust. He's made some real nice buys during that time, but the big money moves have let him down and he didn't really have that much margin for error given Liverpool's lack of depth.

    Still pretty early, but November and December will surely separate the contenders from the pretenders. I do think it's more than just a race between Man United and Chelsea though as I think Arsenal and Man City will play a part.

    Nice win for United today. I was hoping for a draw, especially with a handful of marquee guys not making the trip. It was looking that way, but Valencia got one late and should have had two.

    Valencia has two goals in his last two games, his form recently has been encouraging. I think he's comfortable with United now and he'll be a key piece down the stretch.

    What a game in Madrid. Thought Kaka was pretty average, seemed like he was doing too much. Pato was deadly today, Seedorf was really good as well. Didn't see much out of Benzema although he should have been awarded a penalty in the first.

    ...maybe Liverpool should go for broke and win the FA so we can at least be in the UEFA cup next season.

    Apparently, Keane wasn't Benitez's buy. I agree that Babel's failure has magnified Liverpool's problems.

    We struggled when Agger was out injured last season, forcing Alonso to play deeper to relieve Carragher. This season, we started off without both Agger, Alonso, AND Aurelio...all excellent caretakers and distributors of the ball. Aurelio's was establishing himself as the dead ball specialist for the team.

    I never doubted Alonso's talent, but is he really that good or did Benitez's tactics relied too much on Alonso's playmaking abilities?

    It really feels like **** to go from watching the fantastic and passionate football we played last season, to this **** that we have had to endure most of this season. Still, it would be moronic to fire Benitez.

    Aquilani looks like the real deal. Agger came back and looked excellent against Sunderland.

    Unless Agger, Aquilani, and Aurelio goes down again, Liverpool could come roaring back in the second half of the season, like they always do, to finish in the top 4.

    By the way it sounds like Rooney will be a game time decision for United. So Owen could start at Anfield if we go with our 4-4-2.
