Liverpool are the most successful team in English football having won more trophies than any other team, but it has been nineteen years since Liverpool last won the league title and unless Man Utd make a lot of mistakes then you will have to round that up to twenty.
Yes Liverpool have won the Champions League but the league is the main prize, as to win it truly shows that you are the best team in the league. The Champions League isn’t always won by the best team, it is won by the best cup team which isn’t always the same as the best team.
Liverpool have looked more established this season and if it hadn’t been for some silly mistakes along the way could have had the titled tied up by now. Could we be on the verge of a new era for Liverpool? Are they about to show again why the Liverpool home shirt is one of the most recognizable shirts in the world?
Well in my opinion not whilst Benitez is in charge. He has spent a lot of money, more than Manchester United, and hasn’t delivered the title. Yes he has signed a few good players but too many have been substandard and his team selections are at times simply baffling.
Liverpool are heading in the right direction and are one of the hardest teams to play against but their lack of consistency in games they really should win means that it looks like the title will gain be out of reach this season.
