Tommy Smith: Liverpool FC fans are backing Rafael Benitez but will owners?

MUCH has been made about Liverpool's failure to land a league title in 20 years now.

And rightly so. We all know why.

But dropping out of the European Cup before the knockout stages is bitterly disappointing and very painful too for everyone associated with Liverpool FC.

Because it is in Europe's upper echelons where Liverpool Football Club belongs.

So being dumped out of a Champions League group this season which any Liverpool side should ordinarily have been able to conquer, is not good enough.

But my thoughts last night as our Champions League hopes disappeared despite the 1-0 victory over Debrecen went out to those magnificent Liverpool fans who stood in the rain in Hungary at the end on a cold November night singing 'You'll Never Walk Alone.'

They weren't booing, screaming at players or calling for the manager's head.
