Friends Of Liverpool

With Liverpool currently struggling to just qualify for next season’s Champion’s League by finishing fourth in this season’s Premier League, it is worth remembering the time Frenchman, Gerrard Houllier’s time record at Liverpool.
Houllier spent five years as Liverpool manager. In that time he was a reasonable success.
His treble-winning achievement in 2000/01 where he won the League Cup, the FA Cup and the UEFA Cup was a great year for the club.
We finished 2nd in the League behind Arsenal the following year and he won the League Cup in 2002, however his long-ball, defensive tactics drew criticism from the Anfield faithful.
He also won the Charity Shield and the Super Cup before he was sacked by Liverpool to be replaced by the current boss, Rafael Benitez.
The Spaniard won the Champion’s League in 2005, as we all remember so well.
He also won the FA Cup the following year in the Stevie G final.
If you compare the two manager’s records in charge of Liverpool, it is fair to say that Houllier was more successful than Benitez has been in five years at the club.
I like Rafa and I believe he has what it takes to make us win the Premiership, but he hasn’t been an overwhelming success so far, has he?
