Rafa Benitez and Liverpool in crisis

In August, I wrote an article called "Why Liverpool may struggle this season". Now just over 4 months later, I wish I hadn't because Liverpool's season has been nothing short of a disaster.

Including the pre-season friendlies, their record as at today's date reads played 32, won 12, drawn 7 and lost 13.


I saw the whole game against Arsenal today and I was shocked at how bad Liverpool were in the second half. I have never witnessed a poorer second half performance - no shots on goal, no creativity, no passion, no commitment, nothing.

This is more than just a blip. It cannot be blamed on injuries. It cannot be blamed on bad luck. It cannot be blamed on not having a big transfer budget. It is not just about lacking in confidence.

Liverpool are in crisis and I cannot see a way out.
