I do find myself feeling a little sorry for Kenny though. He looked quite withdrawn and at a bit of a loss at times throughout the season. He had the best intentions when he came back to manage a year or so back, so it's a bit of a shame for it to end this way.
We hit the woodwork over 30 times, and I saw a table the other day saying that we lost out to incorrect referee decisions more often than any other team. This season could have played out quite differently.
Makes you realise the difference between success and failure can be quite narrow sometimes.
I'm not surprised to see him go as he looked out of his depth at times, especially over the whole Suaez affair. Rumours are that they have been sounding out AVB. As for Benitez I'm sure fans were calling for him to go when he got the boot, why the sudden change of heart?

If you're talking about me personally, Dj, I never wanted him to go in the first place.
There is a vocal minority of fans who are still anti-Rafa, but I think most have had his reign put into perspective by the last couple of seasons. A top four finish and still being in the title challenge by Spring each year is sounding pretty good right about now...
