    Why are some people calling for Rafa's head?

    Looking at your question and statement, im gonna be honest here.

    Your quite right, he dosent deserve the sack. hes done very well for Liverpool FC.
    Hes won you trophies...............

    But ive gotta ask.......
    Does he deserve to Win the league....?
    How is he Buliding.........what will be different next season or the season after........hes´not gonna change his game plan and if he needed different players, why didnt he vbuy them, he apparentley had a n open cheque book.

    Does he deserve to win the EPL......THAT is what Liverpool fans want, isnt it?

    So far he hasnt shown the nounce nor the ability to put out a squad capable of winning the EPL.
    If thats ok, then keep him..........

    If its not ok, why should he stay, these are the REAL questions that need to be answered.
    I dont see Benitez changeing his style, why would he, he cant, he is what he is......and his teams do not play attractive football, the Liverpool way.

    If your happy with that , keep him.

    The effects of his self proclaimed rotation sytem have deminished alot of team spirit, probably built up on the tail end of last season, look how many players are disgruntled or lacking in confidence.

    Why would next season be any different to this, give them time for what??....more of the same
    The football is boring, hes virtually admitted to being clueless and dosent offer any explanation to the fans of why they are playing badly......just says he´s looking at the next game.

    If your happy with that, keep him, but his system and the players he has have more chance of mid table mediocracy than they ever have of toppling the others...........just look at the football they play...!!!

    • Sean, think your asking the right questions. Although I'd term it "is he capable" rather than deserve.

      There is no doubt he has what it takes to win silverware. Some like to discount it as flukes, or on the backs of great individual players, but he's been consistent in Spain, and now here. You could argue 05 was not his team so he got lucky, but getting back to the final in 07, and the FA cup were his achievements with his squad. The question is can he translate that into a run for the title, which requires consistent performance.

      I'll be honest I really don't know the answer. I can understand the many who've questioned Rafa's ability, and have sympathy with many of their arguments. But its just for me too early to decide. Xmas would be the earliest for me, but more likely need until end of Jan or into Feb, which is when I think champions are made.

      I never expected a title this year, but of course hoping for it. But I am expecting to know if Rafa is capable of achieving that goal by the end of this season. If he can stay in the hunt until late in the season, then I think he will and should be around next season. With a couple more additions, and the experience the new players this year will have gained over the season, then I'll set the bar that little bit higher on first place. But if he cannot prove he's got what it takes to challenge this year, then it will be time to look around for other options.

      • dsteer, you're right.

        I feel a lot of fans feel that a new manager will automatically win us the EPL. It may do, but not instantly. You've got to give them time to build and by time I mean 5 years.

        I think people watched Maureen do what he did at Chelsea and think that could happen to us. What they're forgetting is the Russain Billionaire who backed him. Only one team has that.

        It took Ferguson 7 years to win his first title Manure!
