Going to be weird when we’re singing his name at the derby and those divvys are singing Spanish waiter.
As long as they’re not flying in the league competing with us at the top end then I wish him all the best.
Well if they're doing well, that's where they will be competing. So hopefully we won't be on our phones every 5 minutes on the last day of the season at home to Wolves, wondering if Arsenal are beating them or not.
I think he'll be out of there in no time because he's not one who hits the ground running, and they don't have the patience of job to put up with 6 years of trying to beat us. In fact it's not that far fetched to think he'll be gone before the first derby. But in the unlikely event that he does show his face here next April, he's here for just one reason. To do all in his power to stop us winning the league. So do remember that when you're sitting there singing his name on derby day, while we're trying to smash up the bus he has parked to stop us. On the pitch obviously.
He made his move on the 20th Anniversary of the passing of Joe Fagan, a real Liverpool legend who won more trophies in one season than he managed in 6 of them. Joe was never sacked, he didn't complain about what he couldn't do, and when he walked away, that was that. He never went crawling to Everton for a job.
On another side note, I also found it unbelievable that Benitez, during his time with us, brought 61 players to the club!!
61 players is an average of 10 new players per season. He never developed the ones he got, they were simply thrown away like unwanted presents for Christmas if their form dipped or they were out of favour, then he would cry that he couldn't buy the players he wanted. Apart from Reina, there was no consistency in team selection. His man management skills were and still are, zero. Despite his lack of success since he left, absolutely nothing has sunk in. He has never changed his ways or adapted to new scenarios, he just blames all and sundry for why he hasn't won and sadly, people believe him.
When treble winners Inter became the World Champions, most coaches would congratulate everyone from the owner to the tea lady for helping them do it. Becoming World Champions is the ultimate title a club can have, and it should be a time to let such a massive achievement sink in. Not him however. He turned his winners press conference into a rant against Moratti and was promptly fired.
He doesn't owe us anything. He was ultimately treated poorly by the then owners of LFC.
He thinks he was treated poorly by every owner he's ever had. Valencia Real Newcastle, us, the list goes on and on and on. Never once has he taken responsibility for any game lost by his crap subs, or any league campaign wrecked by Christmas by his outdated, ineffective, unsuccessful tactics. It was always because he couldn't have this and didn’t get that. Someone else's fault.
If he had any respect for us or this club, he wouldn't entertain the idea of going over there, let alone set foot on the farm. And he knows that himself. It's not like there's a shortage of coaching jobs going this summer. So he can try to justify what he's done any way he wants, but it will never wash.
The man hasn't won a league title in the last 17 years. A frankly appalling record for someone armed with all the world class players he has had, during that time. If he was here in this era, honestly I dread to think what version of shambles he would come up with, trying to compete against City and their 90+ point ruthlessness. We know all the excuses that would be used to explain why, but No. 19 let alone No. 20, would still feel as far away as ever.
