    Rafael Benitez Staying or Going?

    Everyone now knows that Liverpool are currently in terrible form and Everyone is saying its because of Rafa. Loads of people are just saying stuff like "Rafa is buying Rubbish Players" which I think is only true to one player.

    I mean Look at the Liverpool Team,

    Reina,Carragher, Riera, Gerrard, Torres, Lucas, Benayoun, Babel, Plessis, Voronin, N`gog And all the others. You gotta admitt that is a good strong team. I think every player is good but what was the point of Buying Voronin? Honestly.

    He missed that open goal against Lyon I think and Even I could have scored that. I know its not all Voronins Fault. When Liverpool lost their 1st game they have lost confidence good style.

    • Haha, so Rafa's 5 year deal still stands apparently. Come on LFC - keep making those vital mistakes lol. You might get lucky and end up sharing our ground if we let you!

    • If I recall correctly, Vorinin was not bought he was a free signing. Vornin would probably start for any mid table team. And most of those players you mentioned should not be 1st team starters. N'gog could be eventually but he isn't the answer for a second striker. Lucas needs to get his head in the game. Benayoun is a good rotation player. I do not think rafa should go but he changed the team too much. He didn't build on last years team. He downgraded. But the season is long and we can still be competitive.

    • well i thnk he should go and i've though that since he made Alonso unhappy by wanting to sell him to make funds for Barry. Alonso was an integral part of the team. And the proof is in our performance this season. If we were lacking in funds and we were second in the league why change anything???? I've lost all the respect for Rafa now and with José Mourinho expressing an interest in getting back into English football at the begining of the season could we do worse lol x

      • At present Rafa is suffering because of his own mistakes. Selling Alonso, who is playing well for Real Madrid, was a mistake. The mid field of last season of Alonso and Javier Mas was as good as any and better than most in Premier League. Also, there are too many people playing for the money instead of playing for the club. Why do we have to buy one forgeiner after another? What is wrong with home grown tallent. Surely there must be more Carra's and Gerrards in the liverpool system Rafa just does not give them a chance unlike Wenger who has two teams both of whom could beat liverpool on present form.

    • Sorry mate but Plessis, Ngog, Lucas, Babel, Voronin just arent good enough to play for Liverpool, the five I just mentioned and even Riera and Benayoun would never make the starting for Man utd, Chelsea and Arsenal, and even Man city and Spurs.

      The 11 you just mentioned is a good solid midtable table team Im afraid, and even if you include the likes of Agger and Kuyt youve missed out I cant see them finishing in top 5 this year, especially with constant injuries to Torres and Gerrard, Liverpool are two men team right now

    • i think he has been tapped up by scotland hahaha, sounds like he is offering the yanks a way to get rid himself.

    • Rafa Benitez has just given the Liverpool FC board a perfect opportunity. He has a fresh contract in his pocket so it would cost them millions to get rid of him…now they know all they need to do is sell Torres and he will resign which costs them nothing! So they bag a lot of money and clear the way for a new manager. And let’s face it since 2005 he has been getting by on a lot of luck and a captain who will run his heart out every week.

      Face it Liverpool fans you’ve got to straighten out the finances soon, or when it comes to major honours ‘you’ll never compete again’

    • Rafael is passing through a hard time he build his team round Gerrard, Torres, Alonzo, Rafael need some time to replace this players Liverpool fans should stand by him, bring the best coach in the world it wont change things over night

    • I thing benites should leave he/s got no clue about what a bunch of rubbish players he bouth
