You can say that after every match since Benitez took over. The trend says that he is performing terribly.

Compare that to RDM, who lost to Man United, Shakhtar, Juventus, West Brom and drew with QPR and Juventus at home.
Good managers don't have so many losses and draws to those teams with this squad. There is no way we would be worse off in the league if RDM was still manager. Even if we didn't win anything this year under him we would still be better off going into next season if we kept him on until the end of the season and reassessed from there.
