Paul Masefield at Channel 812 ESPN was spot on. The Liverpool fans must be tearing their hair out,going ballistic and tearing up Rafael Benitez photographs into shreads and doing moon stomping on it. The word is “NUTS…and F…Hell according to my friend who is a Liverpool fan and he just doesnt understand what this Spanish Manager has got in his mind.
Its time for him “Rafa” to just quit and get out of Anfield. 4 points behind Manchester City and City has a game in hand with 5 games remaining. What the “tut tut tut” is he thinking off changing Torres a world class striker with 25 minutes left with Ngog. This is too much and for Liverpools sake its time for him to be replaced. Rafa got it all wrong and maybe he was thinking to protect Torres for the Benfica match in midweek.
The result 1-1 and if Torres was still on the pitch who knows he could have assisted even to play Babel or Ngog for the winner. Stevan Gerrard the captain was also caught on camera scratching his head in disbelief with the managers decision and also Liverpool fans worldwide .
Liverpool is really a club in turmoil with Rafa Benitez a dead man walking as the team lurch from one crisis to another, out of the title race, out of the FA Cup and now edging closer to missing the 4th Champions League spot.
Liverpool should be challenging for the Premiership instead now they are only considered as one of the teams for the 4 Champions League places. How very sad..!! Now wonder all the Liverpool faithful fans are throwing tantrums everynow and then. Rafa has overstayed…..
