Merseyslide: Five Reasons Liverpool Haven't Lived Up to Expectations This Season

Whatever way you look at it, the 2009-10 season for Liverpool has been a disappointment.

Following the excellent campaign last year which saw Liverpool amass a club record amount of Premier League points on their way to finish second, many fans, pundits, and professionals tipped the Merseyside club to go one better this season and finally win the league title once again.

Having lost just twice throughout last season, Rafa Benitez's men have tasted defeat on eight occasions already in the current campaign.
