The last nail…. from bad to worse for Liverpool

Posted on January 15, 2010 by in Liverpool

At LetsCompareBets we noted the negative press about Rafa Benetez recently. Amungst all the negativity there was still a glimer of hope for the Liverpool manager. If he could start playing well in the new year and get Torres playing consistantly his management would be saved.

By then…. Liverpool went an lost to Reading. Yes Reading the championship side. Leaving only the Europa League as the only chance of silverware for Liverpool this season.

Now we’re not saying Reading are a rubbish team when taken in context, however, against a side like the Reds this shouldn’t have happened.

Chelsea are 12 points ahead of Liverpool in the premiership. They need 5 points to get to the 4th to win the final Champions League place.

The players at Liverpool, in particular Jamie Carragher, have apologised for their performance. Meanwhile, many have be calling for Rafa’s head. Skybet have odds of 8/11 of Rafa not being manager at the end of the season or as early as next weeks game against Stoke; 4/1. Now also the ‘favourite’ as the bookmakers favourite to go.

Who’ll replace him?

Former manager Kenny Daglish is currently the bookies’ favourite to take over from Benitez – with ex-Chelsea manager Guus Hiddink next in the betting. Not to mention Jose Mourinho who’s got to be the peoples favourite. But, he’ll be hard to draw away from Milan.
