Friends Of Liverpool

Its is reported tonight that George Gillette wants an immediate end to Rafa Benitez’s reign at Liverpool.
It is said that he was reluctant to award him a new five year deal last season and is now pushing for a termination of the under pressure Manager’s contract.
Tom Hicks, however, is keen to keep Rafa at Anfield as he believes the man still holds the support of the Kop.
Though, the season to date has been very poor reaching a new low with the loss to Reading at Anfield on Wednesday, they managed a hard-fought draw with Stoke at the Potteries.
While the two Americans are at loggerheads, it appears that no decision will be reached on Benitez’s future.
The Anfield faithful have a major bearing on all of this.
If they turn on Benitez, as they did after the Reading defeat, then matters will have come to a head and Hicks will act by removing Rafa.
