I spoke to him three weeks ago and it was clear he was not happy. He was down and wants success

Not the words I like to hear coming from Rick Parry when he’s talking about the best midfielder in Europe. For all Houllier’s claims that he has left this club with a footballing legacy that will come good, I see a squad of talented players dissillusioned at a club heading nowhere, none more so than Michael Owen and Steven Gerrard. Hopefully these players will give Benitez a chance to prove that he can undo the damage that Houllier has done to the club in the past few seasons.
