gillett-wants-rafa-out Co-owner George Gillett feels fans should blame Rafael Benitez for the club’s perceived lack of progress which will not go down with the liverpool fans im sure.

Gillett and co-owner Tom Hicks have been accused of failing to invest sufficiently in the Reds squad but Gillett insists Benitez has had more backing than many of the club’s rivals.His words is all based on stats and money and one fact we know at least a good 70% of liverpool fans back rafa we cant’ see how Gillett and Hicks can say this.Rafael Benitez record is very good and he is one of the best managers in europe even last season liverpool had their best result in a long time.Ok liverpool do depend allot on Torres or Gerrard but things can change in football as we all know. Ok Alberto Aquilani is a class act who we are yet to see but buying a injured player was always going to be a high risk at the start of a new season to cover such a great player like Xabi Alonso.

However, Gillett in a report in the Daily Telegraph claims the American the pair have done more than their Premier League rivals to improve the financial footing of their club.

“We have invested more money than our competitors, in keeping with the history of the club,” Gillett is quoted as telling a representative of the fans’ group Spirit of Shankly prior to Liverpool’s 6-1 win over Hull last week.

“In the last 18 months, we have invested £128m on top of what has come in.

That means it should be getting better.

“Now if it’s not getting better, it’s not Gillett and Hicks, it’s the manager,

“The club is in extraordinarily good financial condition. Far better than Manchester United, Chelsea or Arsenal.Fact looks like the owners are trying to push the manager out when on the flip side most liverpool fans want them out.Will pressure pay its price if so we could see rafa leaving this season.

Do the owners have a point?
