Friends Of Liverpool

Rafa Benitez revealed he has held talks with Liverpool CEO Christian Purslow about the consequences of failure in the Champions League this season, about which Benitez said: “The first thing though is that we have confidence we can still reach the last 16 this season”.
That is going to need, already qualified, Lyon to beat Fiorentina away, not going to happen.
But then Rafa virtually gave up on winning the League when he said: “I am confident the team will finish in the top four..”
Dear oh dear, its only November and the Boss has hopes only of finishing in the top four.
True, we have lost five games out of eleven already this season and we lie 7th in the table after today’s games, but its a bit too early for Benitez, of all people, to be writing off our Title hopes.
There are an awful lot of games to be played between now and the end of the season and while I admit that its going to be very hard to win the Trophy this year, I still live in hope.
Once you give up hope, Rafa, then you have very little to play for.
