Oh dear, Liverpool. A season which started with cautious optimism has swiftly descended into #RodgersOut crowdfunding campaigns and Twitter rants and it looks like it's only getting worse as we move towards the end of September.
Rodgers' new-look set-up are economical and efficient, but they will need to recapture that flair that made them one of the most exhilarating outfits to watch in European football two years ago, especially with trips to the Emirates and Old Trafford beckoning in the next three weeks.
If Liverpool want to keep thinking of themselves as one of the world's biggest clubs, then they need to prove it on the pitch. Benteke will either be integral to them doing so, or he will be the poster boy of their fall from grace.

While a few additions may not sound like the rebuilding job a lifetime to everyone, there can be no doubting that Rodgers' future at Liverpool now depends heavily on the fortunes in the coming season.
Liverpool badly need to get their house in order if they want to have a hope of clawing their way back into the top four again any time soon. The building blocks are all there: a devoted fanbase, a young team rife with potential, a manager with a decent track record and the rest of it.
Unfortunately for Liverpool fans, history has repeated itself... again. A season of hope created last year has been followed by a term failure. And even while Brendan Rodgers will get another opportunity to set things right, it could be his last chance if he doesn't succeed.
What looked like a minor disaster of a season three months ago could turn out to be an unqualified success by the end of May - and leave them set up for a genuine title push next season. Watch out.
The goals may not be flowing as freely as last season when Suarez and Sturridge were in a rich vein of form, but Rodgers appears to have finally struck the right balance in attack with the players at his disposal.
It was a shrewd move from Brendan Rodgers to go in front of the press last week and admit that he was aware of being the bookies' favourite for the sack. Possibly his smartest move of the season.
