Last season Liverpool were top of the table at this point in the season till your sainted manager went on a rant at which point Alex ferguson probably had a good chuckle to himself knowing that he had just broken Liverpool the way he had with Newcastle and kevin Keegan.
Last season was better but wtf has happened this season? They sold 40 million worth of talent and bought 40 million worth off talent and they are losing. They got knocked out of the Champions league to two teams who have spent decidedly less than Liverpool, they just wrote off 8 million pounds of income through a good cup run after losing to Reading.
Its easy for players to bitch about spending more money but Liverpool are getting beat by in all competitions by squads that have in some instances spent a fraction of what Liverpool have spent.
Today Torres is bitching about a lack of transfer funds. Wtf? If 130 million pounds of talent on the pitch can't beat Reading(Twice), Lyon(Twice), Fiorentina(Twice), Villa(Twice), Sunderland, Fulham and fxxxxng Portsmouth of all teams I might be loathed to give that manager another 40 million of funds to spend on players too if i was the owner.
Benitez and his players are trying to paper over the cracks by harping on about the ownership situation.
Ask yourself right now, if Guus Hiddink(Or any other good manager) came in and managed this team would things get better, if you answer yes then you are agreeing with me.
As for the players he inherited you are missing my point, you lambasted the talent that he inherited(And they were crap players) I was pointing out the irony on how those players are probably the reason he still has a job right now because of one very special night in Istanbul. Im NOT saying those players were good, I am saying they are probably the reason Benitez has not been binned yet.
