You’ll Never Walk Alone says all that needs to be said:
“When you walk through a storm,
Hold your head up high,
And dont be afraid of the dark,
At the end of the storm, is a golden sky,
And the sweet silver song of the lark.
Walk on through the wind,
Walk on through the rain,
Though your dreams be tossed and blown,
Walk on, Walk on with hope in your heart,
And you’ll never walk alone, You’ll never walk alone!”
We walk with our team and manager in goods times but more importantly we walk with them in bad times. We do not walk behind them sharpening our knives!
That said we need our fan base as one. The anti-Liverpool bias in the media is winning with its’ divide and conquer tactic. Whether you are like me in the Pro-Rafa camp or not, we all support the team. Supporting the manager or calling for his head is no indication of whether you are a real fan or not. True fans are indicated only by the Liverbird they wear, literally or metaphorically, on their chest! We are all true Liverpool fans.
I have seen it written in recent days that Shankly would be rolling in his grave not just at the off-field problems but also at the performances on the pitch. This cannot be denied but his RPM’s would be greatly increased due to the squabbles and divisions among the fans between the Pro and Anti-Rafa camps. Lets all pull together. Debating tactics and selection is one aspect of being a fan and is perfectly acceptable, just remember Rafa is our current manager and until the board decide different, he deserves our full backing. I know you cannot keep living on past glories, but is this the record of a bad manager: 2 Champions’ League finals, winning 1, 1 FA Cup, and the highest points total with fewest defeats in a season not to win the League.
Do you still want to go the Man City route and sack our manager mid season?
