If you think that the criticism is unfair or uncalled for just now. Then just wait until the FA Cup Semi Final, in the off chance that we lose to Everton, there will be a tidal wave of adverse comment that frankly will be hard for Kenny to withstand. In the event that we win and go though to the finaL and lose, there will be similar quantity of disparaging comment on Liverpools Season the only difference being, there will be less vitriol, again it will be tough for KD.
The only escape route here is an FA Cup victory, which will buy some time to see if Henderson and Carroll can mature and together with the addition of some creative ability in midfield present a challenge in the early part of next season. Otherwise it is armageddon for the current management. The American Owners, being 'American' have no sentiment in business and will already be planning for the possibility of change.
Current form says that we have only a slim chance of success. A huge factor called spirit needs to be developed by the players, something only rarely observed in an LFC team this season. If ever the lad's had to stand up and be counted as a unit it is now. Everton must be out-gunned in every department on every sqaure inch of Wembley and then the dose repeated in May against Spurs or Chelsea.
Is this a tall order or just the kind of challenge we need? The fan's can cope, but do the players have it in them?
