With the Liverpool job up for grabs, and Villa looking for a new manager as well, I'm sat thinking about manager jobs in football who are notoriously hard. The Liverpool-job is up there, what with their inferiority complex, and the extremely high expectations of the fans considering what the club is up against. I think Liverpool should be a top 6 club with the resources that they've got, but not much better. The fans expect CL football every year, a trophy, and ideally a sustainable title challenge. That's just not very realistic in the current climate. And I do feel Rafa Benitez did a better job than many, me included, was giving him credit for. His slightly insanse outbursts darkened his reign, but he did a fine job. At Villa, the fans are relatively demanding, but know they can't compete for top glory. Still, it's a tough task, with Lerner tightening the purse strings and fans expecting European football. So, which jobs are the notroiously hardest ones in football? Liverpool? Real Madrid? And, not least, why?
