So George Gillett is at it again, airing the dirty laundry in public with his latest rant, blaming Rafa for Liverpool’s dip in form. Here is my response to Gillett.
So what the hell are you trying to achieve with this? You know Rafa’s phone number and you could have told him this yourself, no one else needs to know it. If my boss ever slapped me like this in public I would simply walk out. I admire Rafa for sticking around while you clowns give him all this “Schtick”.
Yes, we were bad against Fiorentina but although we played much better against Chelsea we lost. Quite frankly, if we had gotten a lucky goal instead of Chelsea we could have won or tied the game. That is football George, it is obvious you do not have a clue on what the sport is all about. If you had your way you would make the players wear helmets and grab the ball with their hands.
You gave Rafa £20 million to improve the team over the Summer which based on the current evaluation of players the amount would have not been enough to buy a single World Class player. Little did we know at that time that the extended contracts signed by Gerrard and Torres had to come of the £20 million. Without a doubt losing Xabi Alonso was a big blow and we can’t deny it, we sold Xabi for £30 and then Rafa turned around and bought Aquilani for £20, what happened with the £10 million? Oh! Rafa actually made you money!!!!!
Rafa wanted to sell Xabi last season and this was after a couple of bad seasons and in return buy Gareth Barry who at the time looked better than Xabi. The deal did not go through because you and your ally Rick Parry did not want to meet Villa’s evaluation. Xabi turned around and had one of the best seasons with Liverpool however unfortunately it was too late his mind was made up to leave Liverpool.
So what are you going to do now? Fire Rafa? or force him to quit? And who are you going to bring in to replace him? Jurgen Klinsmann, who could not even cut it in the Bundesliga?
In the last couple of years you tried to make yourself look like the “Good Guy” and blame all the ills on Tom Hicks. We all know who brought Tom Hicks in the picture , it was you George. You are probably going to deny that like you have denied the fact that you said that you were going to dig a “Big Swimming Pool” in Stanley Park. I know your type George, you are one of those self-made millionaires who BSed your way into riches.
And we are suppose to believe you after all these lies?
Sell now, free our club so we can return to the Liverpool Way.
Walk Alone George.
