Dave even if we won, the Uefa Cup. FA Cup and came in the top four I would still want him to go.
Something has happened in that club for a team to lose out to Manure by four points to a team that made Reading look like Brazil and the first port of call to try and find the problem is the manager.
I agree that ultimate responsibility does have to go to the manager (as does the credit I might add) if we cannot turn things around, which is why I expect to join those calling for his head if that comes to pass. And, I understand you've had a fundamental change of heart on the boss. But I think it’s a fair proposition to give him till the end of the season, and therefore allow his to rise above, or hang himself.
But if he is able to rise above, I think credit where credit is due. Mind you, and I don't necessarily count you in this statement, I think the more likely outcome is silence from some quarters. Its strange how some of the most frequent posters at the moment were all but non existent on these boards when we were chasing the title last season. Got a feeling if Rafa fails the volume on here will get very loud, but if he succeeds many will be either silent, or posting under different ID's.

No Dave if he turns the season around I will quite happily post a thread congratulating him, but the fact is IF he does turn the season around it doesn't give him a free pass to continue managing.
I think it his managerial techniques that is killing us.
Read an interesting article with Alonso talking about Benitez and saying how he almost robotic with the team, there is no friendship or man management, he's the manager their the players and that's it.
these days Dave more and more players needs man managers to get the best from them abd IMO Mourinhio and MON are two of the best around that could take on Liverpool and improve the state of our team.
