As an ardent Liverpool fan, I am delighted with our recent run of form. I also feel vindicated because everyone-Liverpool fans included- have been calling for Rafael Benitez’s head during our recent bad patch.
Every team goes through a loss of form, so I was amazed that everyone used our bad run to justify firing Benitez.
Unfortunately these days, football fans are a very fickle bunch, and are focused exclusively on the short term.
People tend to forget that under Benitez, Liverpool has been consistently competitive in Europe, and finished second in the League only last year.
He has not suddenly become a poor manager just because we have had a disappointing season so far.
Of course there is a danger of reading too much into a two-match winning streak, but I genuinely feel this is the point at which our season is going to turn around.
Chelsea and Manchester United fans have been mocking us for the last two months, but they should be beware of the danger of writing off Liverpool too soon.
The season is far from over, and favourites like Chelsea, Man U and Arsenal have also been dropping a lot of points as well.
