Well I just do not have the energy and will to write or say much after the loss today so here are my thoughts.
We all knew that Gerrard & Johnson were injured while Aquilani was sick with a “Virus”, however everyone seemed puzzled why Aurelio, Agger, Skrtel & Riera did not even make the bench including myself.
Things started well and Yossi hit the post however the Reds switched off and Zamora punished us. Torres gave us hope again and tied up the game at 1-1.
In the 63rd minute Rafa pulled Torres and that is when everything went downhill, Fulham scored and then Rafa pulled Yossi out.
To add insult to injury Degen got a straight red and then a few minutes later Carra got a red too, the remaining 9 tried to do the best however Fulham scored again making it 3-1.
Now the question is Why did Rafa make such decisions?
I only have the following possible answers.
1) Is there really a flu outbreak at Melwood and that is why Aurelio, Agger, Skrtel & Riera did not make the squad?
2) Rafa is under pressure to qualify for the CL and has to make it his priority. Liverpool could miss out on a lot of money if we do not qualify for the knockout phase. H&G want Money.
3) Torres & Yossi were tired and Rafa did not want to risk both of them getting injured.
Before we all scream for his head we need to know the facts, there are many things that happen behind the scenes that we do not know about. Remember he also has a financial responsibility which takes precedence over any trophy.
At the end of the day it all comes down to MONEY!
