After all, only Chelsea and Manchester United domestically, and AC Milan in Europe, finished ‘higher’ than the Reds, and all three spent significantly more money than Liverpool in the process. Pound for pound, Benítez achieved more with his outlay than his main rivals. But, of course, no true winner will ever be happy with that. It’s not about accepting second best, as no fierce competitor will do that, but being realistic. Just as Reading cannot hope to get even remotely close to competing for the league title, perhaps it’s 47 Above Us Only Sky recently become unrealistic to expect a club to win the league without spending a really hefty amount of money on the team.
But as a whole, British footballers will get an idea into their heads –– perhaps from a few aborted attempts at something like zonal marking, when it was doubtless never given time to bed in (and remember, Liverpool had severe teething problems with it in 2004/05) –– and rather than research their facts, they’ll trot out a highly subjective viewpoint. Because football is ‘all about opinions’, too many in the game don’t feel the need to look up the facts.

The six away victories were all deserved: emphatic wins at Wigan, Charlton and Watford, as well as fairly comfortable victories at Reading, West Ham and Spurs. Had the Reds shown greater coolness in their finishing, and experienced a bit more luck, it could easily have been ten away wins, which would have been much closer to United’s 13. It’s easy to say ‘what if ’, but in this case it shows that it wasn’t really a lack of attacking intent that cost the team on those four occasions, but a failure to be clinical.
