How Crap Are Liverpool?
I blogged on here at the start of the season that the wheels were about to come off at Liverpool and so it is proving. The squad is ridiculously thin and now, it seems, Torres is not prepared to put his body on the line for the team. His no show against Birmingham says it all. With an international break to follow, you would have thought that the Spaniard could have given the team 60 minutes. Benitez seemed to think so, based on his comments at the weekend. But apparently not.
Real Madrid will be looking for a new manager soon and it is hard to see Benitez resisting the challenge to jump ship. This team is going nowhere and if Liverpool miss out on the Champions League come the end of the season, then those massive debts will start to strangle the life out of the club. If Benitez goes, will Torres follow? Why would he want to hang around at a mid table team already knocked out of Europe? If Torres and Benitez go, why would Gerrard want to stay? Might he not fancy a few years in the Real Madrid midfield to top off his, as yet, not so terribly illustrious career?
Of course, when I predicted Liverpool's demise at the start of the season, I was told I didn't know what I was talking about; just as I was mocked when I predicted we would struggle to avoid relegation. Well, a 2-2 draw against Birmingham, only secured through blatant cheating, suggests I might know something about the game of football, or Soccer as Liverpool's owners call it, after all!
