Friends Of Liverpool

Rafa Benitez has had a very poor season by his and Liverpool’s exhalted standards. 15 defeats in all competions, ten in the Premiership alone, has made for some unpleasant reading
As we speak Liverpool lie 6th in the League with a game more played than most teams around them, not the stuff of Champions.
A poor season has seen us crash out of the Champions League, FA Cup and the Carling Cup with only the Europa Cup to play for.
From a team which nearly and should have won the League last season, it has been an almity loss of form.
We are in grave danger of missing out on 4th place and no Champions League football next season.
So do we sack the manager after five years of good work and replace him with someone else just because of one below par season?
Anyone that would come in would be expected to win the league with a budget of around £20 million to spend and would be expected to win the League while the likes of Man City and Spurs are spending  money on new players like it was going out of fashion.
The big rumour is that Jose Mourinho is interested in the Liverpool job, but only if he is given plenty of money to spend on the team.
He is a bit in your face, a bit arrogant but he is also a winner.He is a master tactician, he won the Premiership with Chelsea two or three times and after his Inter Milan team knocked Chelsea out of the Champion’s League, he is still one one of the hottest properties around.

Jose Mourinho
I for one would welcome him on board at Liverpool but he will not come unless he can sign his own players and with the hated Hicks and Gillette unable to find a brass farthing to keep the club afloat, I doubt it will happen.
Instead, I expect Benitez to remain in charge next season under a shoe-string budget and we will likely finish in the top three next year under Benitez to keep the sorry show on the road..

I would not get rid of Rafa just for the sake of it, I would only replace Rafa with Mourinho, nobody else.
