How do you think he is doing as Liverpool coach ??

Do you think there are avenues as to which he could improve on ???

What things could he do to improve Liverpool ??

He has just won the Barclays Manager of the month award for January, which to me suggests he is starting to cement some good results, some solid performances and of course heading in the right direction that the club should be going.

Id like to hear everyones thoughts on Benitez

I think he has done pretty well with Liverpool so far, a Champions league and a FA in his first two seasons. I think the squad he has built is pretty good shape right now with a few great buys (Pepe, Agger, Alonso, Momo) that give use a great spine with Carra and Gerrard that would be included in this spine. He las us to our best point total in the Premership (the modern one). I think he has had his tough times with systems that he has to play and getting the right line-up but I believe he is getting the hang of it and hopfully he can make the next step as a manager and lead us to the Premership title. One thing is good is his commintment to the club, when other clubs like his beloved Real Madrid and Inter came knocking he was loyal and stayed at Liverpool and now the fact he has just a house in Wirral shows that he plans to be here awhile

Well yes there are some aspects that he could improve on, in the market he doesnt have the best record with skillfull and creative players....players like Pennant, Gonzalez, Bellamy still haven proved their worth IMO and sometime his tactics can be a tad to defencive for my liking. I find it easy to critize a manager from the outside but there are a few things he could do.

Well for me the big season is next one, he has had time to get rid of the GH waste and put his players into the club and with the injection of cash he needs to go out and get those 2 or 3 quality players that will make the different. Next season will be the one where he has to put in a decent shot if not win the title then depending on the situation he could be under pressue.
