    RAFA ON THE BRINK?




    Rafa Benitez's job at Liverpool is thought to be on the line after their embarrassing defeat by Barnsley in the FA Cup on Saturday.

    Various newspapers report that the Champions League will be Benitez's last chance to save his job, after arguably Liverpool's best chance for a trophy slipped away at the weekend.

    The Guardian claims that the Liverpool board - despite public assurances from co-owner Tom Hicks to the contrary - will review Benitez's position at the end of the season, regardless of who is in charge of the club at that point.

    The Dubai International Capital Group are thought to be closing in on a deal worth around 500million to buy the club from Hicks and George Gillett.

    Both The Daily Express and The Daily Mirror go one further by claiming that Benitez will definitely be sacked unless he wins the Champions League this season.

    Benitez's run-ins with the current owners have been well documented, but it also seems that DIC are not convinced that he is the right man to lead the club forward, should they complete their takeover.

    Now it even seems that patience is wearing thin with sections of the previously staunchly loyal Liverpool fans, support among whom has been almost unshakable since success in the 2005 Champions League.

    However, constant team rotation and an apparent lack of progress despite spending some 45million in the summer on new players have left many Liverpool fans wondering if he is the right man.

    Let's get ready to GUESS GUESS GUESS!


    Correct Score Prediction = 3points!

    Correct 1st Scorer for LFC = 1point!

    Correct Last Scorer for LFC = 1point!

    Hat-Trick Hero Perfect Guess Guess Guess! = 5points!

    so in any game, the max point a participant can net is a total of 10points.


    Sorting Out the Grey Areas.

    1). in the event of 1-0 end result, the 1st scorer will be taken as the last scorer even though the participant might haf anticipated 2-0 or 22-0 and haf listed someone else as the last scorer.

    2). the prediction is good till the Final Whistle, which includes Extra-time but not Penalty Shootout.


    Current standings:

    1) Cheesecake 24 points
    2) roadrunner 18 points
    3) jfoo 18 points
    4) kelccm 15 points
    5) dfstan 13 points
    6) blazer_works 11 points
    7) zhapchit 10 points
    8) airfins 10 points
    9) grumpy 9 points
    10) canew 9 points
    11) roDz 6 points
    12) xen0275 4 points

    Liverpool WILL review Benitez position
    tribalfooball.com - February 18, 2008

    Liverpool will review manager Rafa Benitez's position at the end of the season, it has been revealed.


    The Guardian says the move comes despite previous assurances from their co-chairman Tom Hicks that the manager will fulfill the final two-and-a-half years of his Anfield contract.

    Hicks last month assured Liverpool supporters that the Spaniard was safe until at least 2010 as he sought to repair damage caused by his approach to Jurgen Klinsmann. The embarrassing FA Cup exit, however, coupled with a 19-point gap between Liverpool and the Premier League leaders Arsenal, have raised further doubts over Benitez, and Hicks' vote of confidence will be reassessed.

    That will be the case whether Hicks and George Gillett are in control of Liverpool in May or Dubai International Capital has succeeded in its attempt to buy out the Americans.

    Well done

    Liverpool v Inter Milan: Preview



    LONDON, Feb 18 (Reuters) - Liverpool face a daunting challenge from runaway Serie A leaders Inter Milan in the Champions League at home on Tuesday only three days after their FA Cup humiliation by Barnsley.

    Having gone down 2-1 at Anfield against the Championship (second division) side on Saturday, five-times European Cup winners Liverpool must call on their vast experience if they are to win the opening leg of the first knockout round tie.

    Stephen Gerrard, who has four goals in the competition, leads a Liverpool side now out of the FA Cup they last won in 2006 and whose interest in the Premier League is virtually over barring the fourth Champions League berth for next season.

    With all their eggs now in one basket, defender Jamie Carragher, set to make his 99th European appearance for Liverpool, said: 'We will have to play a lot better than we have been and be at our very best to get through.

    'They look like running away with their title and are keen to win this trophy after watching AC Milan do that against us last season,' he told the club's website.

    'It will be a big test for us and we will have to up our game a level or two to get through. Making a good start in the tie at home, though, is crucial.'

    Italian champions Inter have lost only one match this season, a 1-0 defeat by Fenerbahce in Turkey in September in their first group game, and are 11 points clear in Serie A after a 2-0 win over Livorno on Saturday.

    Coach Roberto Mancini rested his favoured strike partnership of Zlatan Ibrahimovic, joint top scorer in the Champions League with five goals to go with his 14 in Serie A, and Julio Cruz.

    Cruz said it would be a mistake to focus on the second leg being at San Siro.

    'We mustn't think that this might be an advantage. We have to try and do things well without thinking about the return leg at home, and try to kill off the match before the game in Milan,' he told Sky Italia.

    Luis Figo came on as a substitute against Livorno for his first appearance since breaking his leg in November, a piece of good news amid their injury problems in midfield where Patrick Vieira and Chilean playmaker Luis Jimenez are doubtful.

    Remarkably, the clubs have met only once before in the European Cup when Inter prevailed 4-3 on aggregate in 1965 on the way to winning the trophy for the second season in a row.

    Probable teams:

    Liverpool: 25-Pepe Reina; 2-Steve Finnan, 23-Jamie Carragher, 4-Sami Hyypia, 6-John-Arne Riise; 11-Yossi Benayoun, 8-Steven Gerrard, 20-Javier Mascherano, 7-Harry Kewell; 18-Dirk Kuyt, 9-Fernando Torres

    Inter Milan: 12-Julio Cesar; 13-Maicon, 2-Ivan Cordoba, 23-Marco Materazzi, 6-Maxwell; 4-Javier Zanetti, 19-Esteban Cambiasso, 28-Maniche, 5-Dejan Stankovic; 9-Julio Cruz, 8-Zlatan Ibrahimovic

    Referee: Frank De Bleeckere (Belgium)

    Capello warns Inter of Reds peril


    England manager Fabio Capello has warned Serie A leaders Inter Milan to expect a battle when they meet Liverpool in the last 16 of the Champions League on Tuesday.

    Rafael Benitez's side have reached the final of Europe's premier competition twice in the last three years - winning in 2005 - but are struggling in the Premier League this season and crashed out of the FA Cup to Championship side Barnsley at the weekend.

    Capello insists, however, that Liverpool's poor domestic form will count for little when they host Roberto Mancini's men at Anfield this week.

    He said: 'Liverpool, when playing in the Champions League, transforms itself.
