KD was given a job to do.
He was given the brief finish in the top 4 every season.
He's gone and failed hasn't he?
When he took over we were a shambles and hey guess what..
We're still a shambles as he's blown £100m on substandard players. When KD took over we were facing relegation looks like we're gonna be facing it again, judging by our performances.
The man has no plan B. When we were beating Sunderland we should've closed up the defence so tight it would've taken a tank to mow us down..
Yet he didn't so we lost that game.. The Newcastle game we looked totally clueless.. The list goes on..
So little wonder we're in the position we're in..
I want whats best for the future of LFC and if this is the best KD can do and break the contract he signed with FSG. Then he should be sacked in the summer..
Despite RB failings the man had to deal with H&G who gave him pocket money to buy players with..
Never did RB get us this bad.
I'm not a RB arse kisser as many would believe I just see the overall results he did.
CL in 2005, worst league position was 7th.. Yet he achieved it all on a shoestring budget..
I'd be very interested how he'd fair with FSG who're good owners..

That's it. Too far now.
Firstly do you know who exactly purchased the players last Summer? No. Comolli was involved for sure and there was and obvious brief to buy UK based players and never mind the cost. We do not know to what level KD was involved in the transfers.
Secondly your hero the Spanish Waiter nearly broke the club. I have not met a single person or come across a single argument that justifies what he did while he was in charge. I'll admit he started well with the likes of Reina, Alonso etc. but there after it was a case of looking and saying what has he done now! He may have been fed peanuts in the transfer market but all he bought was monkeys and then put them on big wages. We were a complete laughing stoke while this guy was around.
Why did you think we had to spend £100m on UK based players? Because of what Benitez had put in place beforehand that's why. His last season we were 7th and heading in the same dircetion as we are now.
I'll agree we have problems and things aren't going well but to scream for the Waiter to return without undersanding the damage he did is ridiculous. Why isn't he working now? How long did he have at Inter? Why has he fallen out with the board at Valencia, Liverpool and Inter? Oddly Valencia were pretty skint when he left as well.
No doubt you'll counter with some Net spend garbage which holds about as much weight as a feather in a hurricane when you look at signing on fees, wages, time on the pitch etc. Shoe string budget? Don't make me laugh. Keane £18m or whatever it was wasted, Aquilani £22m wasted and they were transfer fees only. Add the wages and stuff it becomes comical.
You may get your wish and see KD leave his position as manager but that will only expose the hole that needs to be filled thanks to the problems we've had at the club since the 1980's. There are things that need to change at the club and changing a manager every two minutes will only succeeed in more costs and volatility
Rant temporarily suspended. I'm going to grab a coffee to cool off

LFC are not in freefall, the results are poor that is obvious, panicking now is not the answer , yes Kenny has to do his bit, BUT the players have to roll thier sleeves up and play for the CLUB, and not thier own egos.
Don't get me wrong DSteer it's good we won the CC. My point is that the league position ie top 4 is wherer the money is.
This season has been a bit of a mess..
Such as why hasn't KD brought on more defenders to keep a victory.
Such as we had the Sunderland game won yet he should've brought on more defenders and shut up shop.
Tactics have most certainly bin lacking as of late, whenever we have managed to beat teams our tactics have bin spot on, leads me to suspect our recent lack of form has bin to a mix of crappy player rotation and just general lack of desire.
We lost against Sunderland 0-1. Bringing on more defenders would have at best got us a draw, but I’m sure then the complaint would be we are not positive enough. But there is not accounting for the lucky goal that Bentner got (off the back of Reina, remember). When luck goes like that there is little the manager or an extra defender can do
You make your own luck in football by playing well and attacking well. We havent been doing neither.
Kenny does look lost. SHort on ideas. I have no problem with rotation policy (because you need to for keeping squad fresh) but Tactics look dire. He always goes in with the same 442 formation.
Last season we finished the season brilliantly, and I like most fans was very pleased when he got the job fulltime (but i do think lot of that tactic was actually down to Steve Clark since KD was away from the game for so long). I dont believe he should get the sack right now. Definately should get until end of the season with only 7 games to go. And lets see if he can turn it around.
But there is no denying that his dealings in the transfer market has been Bl00dy awful. And thats what it will go down to.
So i beleive KD will have 7 games to save his job and if things dont turn around then Ciao!
KD would always remain a legend for the club but if poor form continues then we should not be tied down by past glory and should only focus on the present.
Actually going to the game is slightly different to watching it on TV, which you would know if you had been 'on a number of occasions.'
You see, you can see everything in the ground, and the TV, well, you see about 60% of the pitch.
That's the thing about half the opinions on here about the progress of the club. They seem to be based on the highlights shown on match of the day. If you had gone to the game regularly, you would see that - generally speaking - the football is so much more improved than in recent years. A return to a passing style, and I can see what Kenny is trying to achieve. If you watch it on your little black rectangle, you don't see that.
Spitthedog (sh*t name by the way)
First off, that was a lie and you know it. Your hooter must have grown 2 inches after that whopper. I'm not talking about going once every two seasons, and a pre-season game at that.
Second, you must be really skilled if you would be able to recognise me at the game from what I write here. If brains was rubber you wouldn't have enough to make a budgie a pair of flip-flops! I'll narrow it down for you, Main Stand Row 34.
Although in saying that, I might have seen you (at previously mentioned pre-season game). I offered you a mint after you begged for some spare change coz your breath made me want to vomit!
Now get back to your dogsh*t infested hovel and try and come back with something imaginative (thereby breaking the habit of a lifetime)
