I back Rafa incase you doubt it ..but Rafa deserves the blame also
for some of the following..
1. Didn’t Rafa know whilst signing Aquilani that he would probably be
our only big signing of the season..? He sure did..
Why Aquilani then..I mean why an injured star..?
2.When Rafa bought Aquilani injured ..did he not know that English
football was physical? (the reason he gives to leave a “fit” Aquilani
on the bench..)
3. Rafa overuses Lucas and that everybody can see..Lucas is not the
one to be blamed…you can’t ask more than that from a defensive
midfielder learning the Game..but Why is he so used ? Just because
Rafa initially mistook Lucas as a man to fill Alonso’s boots..One
mistake leading to another..
As it turns out Lucas has neither the skills not the ability (and
understandably so) to make up for a star of Alonso’s stature to
4. In the summer Rafa had the money..however small be that sum..
I can bet you no coach in this world who knows his financial
constraints will ever go for an injured star..unless they have better
players for that place..Rafa dug his grave there..?
5. Now, who would he have bought ? You are joking if you think the
world is bereft of Footballing talents..I am sure that in the midfield
with 20m pounds you would get more than an injured player who could be
or could not be a star..in other words why play such a gamble for an
injured player when he has already seen what happened to Degen and the
6. As for buying players for reserves and U-18 etc..Rafa and his
scouts have been spot on lately..but just summing it up had Rafa been
as spectacular for the first team in the Summer..well Things could
have been different..If at all he wanted to Gamble why not for a fit
player who was promising ..Why not like Wenger and Fergie..??
7. In the end, well Rafa cannot go out and play and its stupid to
belive that the REDs don’t have the fire to fight Wigan , wolves and
Fulham, Sunderland, Portsmouth on the pitch..For a team aspiring to be
champions..the attitude shown by the players have been unimaginably
horrible..Rafa could train the boys teach them stuff..but the
application was sorely missing..too bad..
Thus, players and rafa are equal stakeholders for this plight of LFC
….Isn’t it ?
