    BENITEZ DEMANDS RESPECT


    Liverpool manager Rafa Benitez has hit back at his critics after the Reds were dumped out of the FA Cup by Barnsley.

    The Tykes, who sit mid-table in the Championship, recorded a huge upset as they came from behind to knock Liverpool out 2-1 at Anfield.

    And the defeat adds increasing pressure on under-fire Benitez as Liverpool can now only realistically target silverware in this season's UEFA Champions League.

    But Benitez, who took over at Anfield in 2004, has defended his record at Liverpool after guiding the Merseyside outfit to two Champions League finals in the past three years - including winning the competition in 2005.

    Benitez has also steered Liverpool to success in the 2006 FA Cup and Community Shield, alongside the 2005 European Super Cup, and the Spaniard believes that record deserves respect.

    "If you analyse the last few years since I came to the club we have won four trophies and been in seven finals, including two in the Champions League," Benitez said in The People.

    "How many other managers have done the same in their first three or four years at the club? People can talk about being successful but nobody is winning trophies every year.

    "To do that is really difficult so I think we are in a really good position with a very young squad, so I have a lot of confidence in the team for the future."

    Benitez's relationship with Liverpool's American owners George Gillett and Tom Hicks has also been questioned and his future at the club was cast into doubt after the duo met Jurgen Klinsmann, who is set to takeover at Bayern in the summer, earlier in the season.

    "When you are trying to work hard and do your job it is hard to accept the criticism that is always following me," Benitez added. "And, yes, it is a big surprise to see another manager in the background."

    Benitez, though, is confident Liverpool stand a good chance of progressing in the Champions League when they meet Italian champions Internazionale in the last 16 on Tuesday.

    "It could be important to us to progress in Europe because that would give us more confidence, particualry if we beat a team like Inter," Benitez continued.

    "It's not impossible. We have done it before and we could do it again - why not?"





    RESPECT ki lan ah, respect!

    An Open Letter To Rafa Benitez

    Dear Rafa,

    I want to start by thanking you for that fifth European trophy as well as that FA Cup, I really appreciated both of those. But I'm writing this to tell you that I think we should see other people. Mostly I think I should see someone else managing my Reds.

    I just think we've gone in different directions. I want to compete, and you want to prove that your system works, and those two things seem mutually exclusive. I agree that you've made the team better on paper with the additions of Macherano, Torres, and Babel, but it just seems like we finish in the same position (hopefully) every year anyway.

    I just want a chance.

    I want to beat teams like Wigan and Barnsley.

    It's not you...it's me.

    Brian, USA, LFC




    The Neighbours Stick Their Nose In

    On behalf of all Everton fans, I would like to add my support to the red side of Merseyside that are backing Rafa as the right man for Liverpool in this dark and difficult time. It would be a terrible, terrible blow to all Everton fans, to lose a Liverpool manager of Rafa's abilities.

    Joking aside, I think I can offer a serious theory on why so many Liverpool fans continue to insist on blindly supporting a manager who, quite obviously, is not performing at any level suitable to a club of Liverpool's aspirations. It is this. If Liverpool supporters now do admit that Rafa is not good enough, they would also implicitly be admitting that 'that night in Istanbul' was...well...quite simply...a fluke.

    This is something of course, all other supporters have known since, well, that night in Istanbul. The longer Liverpool supporters delusions are allowed to manifest in their support of Rafa and thereby allowing him to continue longer, so much the better as far as I am concerned.

    following Cheesecake's way...

    Kop legend Smith blasts Reds boss Benitez

    Legendary Liverpool defender Tommy Smith has launched a stinging criticism of Reds boss Rafael Benitez after his side were knocked out of the FA Cup by Barnsley.

    Brian Howard's injury-time winner at Anfield dumped Liverpool out of yet another competition, leaving them with just the Champions League - in which they face Inter Milan this week - to contest.

    And Smith, who captained Liverpool to the 1971 league and UEFA Cup double, has hit out at Benitez's controversial rotation policy and decision to rest several key players for yesterday's visit of the Coca-Cola Championship side.

    Smith told BBC Radio Five Live: 'In the programme for yesterday's game Benitez said cup competitions are always dangerous if you think you can beat teams easily. So why on earth didn't he put a strong team out against Barnsley?'

    Smith admitted Reds fans may finally start to run out of patience with the Spanish boss.
    'I should imagine so. At the end of the day Bill Shankly used to tell us you're only as good as your last result. How on earth does Benitez think he's going to win stuff if he puts a second-class team out?

    'Because Liverpool's squad is not as strong as I think he thought at the beginning of the season. I don't think he's even got a strong first XI.

    'How could he leave (Jose) Reina, (Steven) Gerrard and (Javier) Mascherano out?'
    Smith admitted the last-16 European tie with Inter is now do-or-die.

    'I'm afraid so,' he said. 'He keeps going on about winning four cups and all that but at the end of the day it's not even entertaining at Anfield at the moment. The crowd keep it going but they booed everybody at the end of the game and quite rightly.

    'The first person you put on the team-sheet is Gerrard. How on earth could he sit on the bench for 75 minutes and watch that...then he (Benitez) talks about chances. Well, they've gone. You can't score after the game finishes.'
