    If all the English clubs get into the Q-final, Liverpool sure to go first coz I think Rafa's tactics only good at Euro side.

    Rafa has the best tactic

    Just before any European FA cup, he would rotate the squad, rest Stevie G, Torrid and Riena. Of course surely got chance for another Cup even though may finish 5th in EPL

    i don't think we so 'lucky' to get them but we certainly know how to beat them

    only if the referee don't get in the way. now with the special one gone, refs have less pressure from chelski but still the drama blue boys can wayang and dive like olympic champions.

    GERRARD VENTS FRUSTRATION





    Steven Gerrard has delivered a scathing assessment of Liverpool's faltering campaign by declaring even winning the Champions League will not make up for the dismal performance in the Premier League.

    The Liverpool skipper accepts that only fourth place now is acceptable as they battle to secure entry into Europe's elite competition next term.

    But he said: "You don't get any prizes in football for finishing in second place, never mind fourth.

    "I don't think that the fans would accept fourth as an accomplishment and for me it's not nearly good enough.

    "We need to improve dramatically and even if we do finish fourth, it doesn't mean we have had a good season."

    Gerrard accepts Liverpool are now involved in a winner-takes-all battle for fourth spot with neighbours Everton - and Aston Villa, Portsmouth and Manchester City.

    Having regained fourth place on Saturday by beating Middlesbrough, they saw Everton grab it back on Monday with an impressive demolition of Sven-Goran Eriksson's City.

    And the battle will rage on this weekend with Liverpool at Bolton on Sunday while Everton are at home to Pompey later in the day.

    Gerrard, in an LFC magazine interview, showed his own frustrations and anger at the club's current fortunes.

    He said: "In the position we find ourselves now, fourth is the least that is acceptable. But we have bigger ambitions than that.

    "The only way we can fulfil those ambitions is in the Champions League. And I am not going to pretend that even winning that trophy - and we are a long way away from it at the moment - will make up for the disappointment of the league campaign.

    "I'm pretty gutted every time I look at the table and see the gap between us and Arsenal at the top, and even the gap between us and second and third.

    "We believed we had the players to challenge for the title, and we wanted that one more than any other trophy available to us. I still believe we have the squad to be a hell of a lot more competitive than we are right now."

    And Gerrard, significantly, claims the time has come for the club to stop looking at their long-term potential. The Reds skipper, who has again been linked recently with a summer move to Real Madrid, said: "I'm getting tired of saying the same thing over and over again.

    "We can't keep talking about next season all the time. There are only so many times you can say it and believe it. Sooner or later we have to make one season the season we make it happen and do the talking on the pitch.

    "We need to make people believe it. I'm 27 now, I don't want to be talking about 'next season' for Liverpool when I'm 32.

    "We've got the stadium, the fans, the manager and the players to compete for the Premier League. But we have no chance of doing that if we are always well out of it by the first week in January.

    "And at the moment we have our work cut out fighting it out with Villa, Everton and Manchester City for fourth."

    And he added: "Only we can make this season a success now. We'd like to finish fourth and win the European Cup again.

    "But the demands of being a Liverpool player, the expectations that come with the privilege of pulling on that jersey mean we've got to improve.

    "You make your own luck, shape your own destiny. And now we soon have massive games at Manchester United and Arsenal, knowing we can't win the league.

    "We are not bothered about whether we have an impact on the title race we're not in. But winning at both those places would send out a message for next season. That would lay down a marker that no-one would ignore."

    Gerrard also expresses a disappointment that a season of crisis off the pitch has given "those in the media who don't like Liverpool" the chance to criticise.

    "We have made it easy for them," he said.

    "It's not been a good situation (the takeover speculation) for anybody. It's sad so much of the club's business has been conducted in public. The club I have grown up supporting always did its business behind closed doors, and that is what we have to get back to.

    "It's been a damaging situation for every single person involved with the club, fans, players, bosses, owners, from top to bottom."

    But Gerrard's theme, which should not be ignored by those "bosses and owners", is the lack of a real title challenge.

    He added: "If you asked most of our fans, they would rather see the title than the European Cup at Anfield. We've not won it in a long, long time.

    "Looking at the league table hurts. This time last year we were third and Arsenal were fourth, and that is the way the season ended. It hurts to see where Arsenal are now."

    BENITEZ WON`T RUSH HYYPIA DECISION


    Liverpool manager Rafael Benitez will decide on the future of defender Sami Hyypia later in the season.

    The 34 year-old has been outstanding in the continued absence of Danish centre-back Daniel Agger through injury, and intimated that he would like a new contract when his current deal runs out in the summer.

    Benitez had planned to use Hyypia as cover for Agger and Jamie Carragher this term but has been forced to use the Finland international 33 times as Liverpool's defensive strength has been stretched.

    Agger made his comeback from a five-month absence with metatarsal injury in the reserves against Manchester United's second string last night and is almost ready for a return to first-team action.

    Hyypia, linked with both Fulham and Newcastle in recent months, expressed a desire to stay at the club and complete 10 years at Anfield in 2009.

    Benitez, who has also bought Slovakian 23-year-old Martin Skrtel for 6.5million from Zenit St Petersburg, insists Hyypia "has nothing to prove" - and a decision on his long-term future will be delayed until near the end of the season.

    The Spaniard said: "I was talking with him, but he knows we have to wait a little bit.

    "I am really pleased with him. The question now is to see how he progresses, but he knows my thoughts.

    "He doesn't have to prove anything. We know him, and he knows why we have to analyse the situation. "Every year he has been a key player for us. He's a centre-back with experience who's good in the air and who can play the ball.

    "He is playing more games than we maybe expected this season - but every game his performance is good."

    Hyypia has spent almost a decade at Anfield after being signed from Willem II by Gerard Houllier in May 1999, and is regarded by Liverpool fans as one of the club's greatest servants.

    Hyypia added: "My priority would be to stay at Liverpool, but it's not only up to me. I haven't got any offers yet from here or any other clubs, so I am just trying to focus on the matches.

    "I am enjoying playing, and I have played more games than maybe I thought I would this season because of all the injuries. The only thing I can do is try to play well. It would be very nice to get to 10 years at the club, but I am just concentrating on playing well.

    "Whether I stay wouldn't depend on how many games I play. I am not like that. I'm not interested in somebody promising me something.

    "If we have four centre-backs then everyone fights for their place, and performances should determine who plays. If I keep playing well then it will be difficult for the manager to change things."

    It will be a shame that Hyppia leave and cannot get his testimonial match.
    Rafa, be a man, do the right thing, give Hyypia the contract and then resign and get out!

    BENITEZ EXPECTS LESS ROTATION
    Jimmy Rice 27 February 2008

    Rafa Benitez expects to use his rotation policy less in the coming months now Liverpool are fighting on just two fronts.


    The Reds boss made only one change on Saturday from the Inter victory four days earlier and that was enforced due to Jamie Carragher's suspension.

    Asked if fans can expect fewer changes from game to game now Liverpool are out of both domestic cups, Benitez said: "I think so. It will depend on the players in the end, but we can keep some players playing more games now."

    Saturday's 3-2 victory over Middlesbrough saw Liverpool temporarily leapfrog Mersey rivals Everton into fourth place a state of affairs which was reversed on Monday night following the Toffees' win at the City of Manchester.

    Benitez knows his side's game in hand at home to West Ham on March 5 will now be crucial if Anfield is to witness Champions League football next season.

    The visit of the Hammers is one of three games before Liverpool travel to the San Siro on March 11, with a maximum nine points very much on the manager's agenda.

    "Everton have a lot of confidence right now and it was a good win for them (on Monday), but it's a long race," said Benitez.

    "Portsmouth, Villa, Everton, City and us will all be there. I'm not sure if it will go to the final game but I think a lot will depend on these three games we have in a row."

    Meanwhile, Benitez has backed Fernando Torres to become the first Liverpool striker since Robbie Fowler in 1995-96 to bag 20 league goals in a season.

    The Spanish superstar has so far netted 21 in all competitions 15 of which have come in the Premier League.

    With 12 league games remaining, Benitez is confident his record signing can go on to reach a much talked about milestone.

    "Hopefully he will score more than 20 that would be really good for us," he said. "If he doesn't have any more injuries I think he can do that.

    "That would be amazing. He is a young player, a foreign player and a striker we know how difficult it can be for these types of players but he has 21 now in all competitions.

    "I don't really set targets. You just talk about scoring a lot of goals."

    Torres is currently in line to become the most prolific debut season striker in Liverpool's post-war history. His average of a goal every 1.48 games is more than John Aldridge (a goal every 1.55 games), Ian Rush (1.63), Roger Hunt (1.65), Robbie Fowler (1.83), Michael Owen (1.91) and Kenny Dalglish (2) managed in their first full seasons.

    Scarily, Benitez predicts that a player he already regards as one of Europe's finest could get even better.

    "He wants to learn, he wants to improve," the Liverpool boss said of his countryman. "That's the key. He's a young player and wants to learn everything.

    "He knows he can improve, and that's one of the reasons he decided to come here. He wanted to win trophies but he also knew he could improve here. That's important for the future and for him.

    "He is one of the best in Europe but, like I say, he can improve. He will get better because his mentality is good. He can improve two or three things and they will make him much better. He knows what they are but it's better not to say because then the opponents will know."

    Less rotation? Sure boh, Rafa!!!?!?!!?!
