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.[LNB]And rightly so. We all know why.[LNB]But dropping out of the European Cup before the knockout stages is bitterly disappointing and very painful too for everyone associated with Liverpool FC.[LNB]Because it is in Europe's upper echelons where Liverpool Football Club belongs.[LNB]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.[LNB]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.'[LNB]They weren't booing, screaming at players or calling for the manager's head.[LNB]No.
