SOURCE: thesun 13 baffling Beni blunders The 13 massive blunders 1. PLAYING centre-half Martin Skrtel as right-back at Boro last term - he was run ragged. 2. THE failure to keep Xabi Alonso, who finally quit for Real Madrid after a feud with Benitez. 3. BENITEZ'S refusal to bring back goalscoring legend Michael Owen. He's now with despised rivals Manchester United. 4. SELLING Peter Crouch to Pompey last year. The England hitman had a decent strike record - 54 goals in 132 appearances. 5. SELECTING Andriy Voronin at Lyon on Wednesday. He was an embarrassment. 6. THE failure to buy a proven second striker. Ryan Babel and Co aren't up to it. 7. LIVERPOOL seem more worried about losing than winning - like last weekend's 3-1 defeat at Fulham. 8. LOSING No 2 Paco Ayesteran after a petty row. 9. BUYING Robbie Keane for £20m from Spurs, showing little faith before selling him back for an £8m loss. 10. LEAVING strike star Torres on the bench for 60 minutes in the stalemate at Stoke last season. 11. WHEN goals were needed in the 2007 Euro final he had Crouch and Craig Bellamy on the bench. 12. THAT Fergie rant. Rafa was right to question the United boss' influence last season but the timing could not have been worse. 13. TAKING off Yossi Benayoun in the home clash against Lyon. Even the loyal Kop booed.
