Friends Of Liverpool

We have all heard of lots of Liverpool players who have been rewarded with lucrative new contracts this season.
Many of Liverpools star players are now in the millionaire bracket thanks to new deals agreed this season by Rafael Benitez and Christian Purslow.
On the face of it, a good idea to tie down your best players to new deals to keep the squad intact and to keep the nucleus of a side that finished second in the Premier League last season.
However, it seems to have back-fired.
Instead of seeing individual performances improve, we have witnessed a slump in form by many key players.
Financially set up for life, they look like and play like disinterested individuals, unwilling to do battle for the cause, looking only to ride it out until the World Cup comes along.
Under-fire boss Rafa Benitez has done the right thing in securing his top players on improved deals, but isn’t it time they started repaying Liverpool Football Club by busting a gut in every game to justify the faith and finance given to them?
Porthmouth on Monday night, a game we must win to keep alive our faint hope of Champion’s League qualification.
Time for the star players to deliver.

Rafael Benitez is getting £5 million a year too, so an awful lot of money is being spent, just to finish 6th, then again, what do I know?

I’m only on £25 grand a year!
