    Is Benetiz sorting out Liverpool's problems?

    In my opinion he is spending a lot of money, without tackling any of the problems from last season.
    - He has paid a lot of money for another striker that does his best work outside the box and therefore won't score the 20 plus goals that he badly needs
    - He has or is about to pay over the odds for an overrated Babel who is will just be another squad player and he's still left without a first choice left winger.
    - He hasn't sorted out the problem of how to accomodate Alonzo. Either Gerrard should be told to play on the right or he should sell Alonzo and bring in a top class right winger, Benayoun is not a top class winger. I don't expect many people to agree with either of these two options, but tell me how else Alonzo will fit in the team as he's far too good a player to sit on the bench and squad rotation is one of the reasons I believe that make Liverpool inconsistant in the league.
    - He is still buying squad players or players with potential when his only concern this season should be with players that can improve the first eleven.
    - Also throw in the fact that his record for improving players is not too impressive either
    Pessimistic maybe, given his champions league record, but I fear that another
    mediocre league season could mean that this is Benitez's last season

    They'll do well in the CL again, and reasonably so in the league. They just can't score enough goals to match Man U and Chelsea, so short of one or both of them falling back a bit, Liverpool will be third again.

    One good thing would be he got rid of Bellamy. He's got a bad attitude and he might do well now and again but I do think he can have an adverse affect on the club he's at.

    I don't think Benayoun is a winger. He's more a central attacking midfielder. He's a playmaker. I don't think Babel is overrated. Having seen him play for Ajax he does do a very good job. I think he'd be a good signing for the future. He'd certainly be worth it.

    I think he'll have time more than til the end of the season.

    Just on the ever so cliched "20 goal a season striker" point. Are you talking about the league? If so didn't Rooney get only 11/12 league goals last year.

    Benayoun's a great signing. He'll link up well with Alonso.

    Yes and United also recognoise the need to sign a goalscorer to play alongside him.

    Yeah, Man Utd had a tough time scoring goals last season
    And on Liverpool. How many players has Benitez gone though since the time he has been there?
    "Jacques Santini...will be greeted in every dugout of the country by "one-nil, one-nil" - Clive Tyldsley, 89th minute of France-England June 13, 2004.
    "Ooooohhhh Nooooooo" Bobby Robson 91st minute.

    Malouda's a proven player. He's played for France, won the Frnech League and played in the Champion's League for the last four years.

    I'd never even heard of Nani before.

    I think da Silva has a good record for Croatia, iirc, so he's not totally untested.

    I've never been that impressed with Malouda regardless of the stats so I was glad he went to Chelsea rather than Liverpool. There aren't very many top class French left wingers about so just because he plays for the national team does not make him a great player.

    Babel I don't know much about but I'm willing to trust Rafa's judgement. Big season for the team though no doubt.

    Yeah and then he was played out of position at Liverpool, without enough support. He scored on his debut, remember.

    There's quite a few: Rothen, Meriem, Monterubio. There just ones in the French league I can think of. I do believe he is a very good player. He was one of Lyon's best players last season when they, comparatively, struggled. I have no doubt he'll do well for Chelsea.

    30 I reckon compared to 12 by united in the same period, but the amount of money spent is only around 10% less than utd, so I don't see your arguement there

    A new manager will, of course, have a clear out when they arrive, it is a nonsence to compare the two teams over a limited period.

    None of them are top class though. Rothen can produce a bit of magic now and again but is injury prone and inconsistent IMO.
