  1. hi Antoine keep up the good work, love reading your daily post,s. Wow people still going on about Jose Mourinho. He would never come unless the cowboys ride in to the sunset. Funny a year ago we was scoring for fun with pretty much the same team. All these so call experts were falling over them selves saying what a great job rafa was doing with one hand tied behind his back. But a year on nothing change rafa still working with one hand tied behind his back but now everyone saying he the worst manager ever.
    At the end of the day no one is bigger than liverpool not even the manager but i would still think Rafa should at least have one more season and if we go through this again then maybe it be a time for a change but now is not the time or in summer for i really do believe that with the young players coming through then we are going to be so amazing in the next few years. Just keep the faith everyone and see the bigger picture and not about here and now.

  2. We do not need to be too cautious in our play. Like playing with 2 defensive minded midfielders(Mascherano & Lucas). We need forward passing players like Aquilani. We can play 1 DM, 2 CM’s in the midfield. Masch is doing his job pretty good.Personally, I dont have anything against Lucas. Its just that Liverpool do not need 2 DM’s at the moment. Even though Rafa has given Lucas the role to go forward, he’s not going to do it naturally. He will only realize that he need’s to go forward when the managers(assistant) shouts at him. In the contrast, Aquilani is a natural forward thinker/passer. You can see the proof in some of the matches when he assists Kuyt’s goals. And he also need match confidence back. He’s not going to get it if he’s sitting on the bench like a china doll. I think Rafa is too afraid to make mistakes/challenges. I know the season is going to end soon and he’s taking some steps to avoid letting in goals at the back, but if we need to score goals we need forward or adventurous players and Lucas and Masch is not one of them. By playing Aquilani, it will also reduce the burden/pressure from Gerrard(he’s cracking under it). It will allow Captain Fantastic to have more freedom around the pitch. Our midfield area would be quite balance and Torres would have no problem by taking assists from Gerrard, Kuyt, Maxi, Babel, Riera , and others.

    So, my point is, we simply DO NOT need 2 DM’s in the form of Masch and Lucas. Just put one of them on the pitch and the other long passer(like Aquilani) and Gerrard. Our midfield would be UNBEATABLE.

    I know its a long rant and also on the wrong page. But remember I’m not against Liverpool or Rafa or any other true reds around the world. I will support them as long as I last. The only one I’m against is H&G.

    Anyway, nice update Antoine.


  3. Antoine , Reira will be sold for sure, why keep him if he cannot be played..He is simply not in Liverpool’s long term plans..

    As for the Rhone Group invessting or planing so, the news speaks that ousting Rafa is a certainty..Well the Do we surely have a Mourinho then ?? Good rumours..but they satisfy humor more than logic..

  4. In Rafa, I always believe, form is temporary, class is permanent!

    #1. He gave me my proudest week for becoming a LFC fan just a year ago (Eating Galaticos 4-0 for breakfast and thumping United 4-1 for lunch, even humilating Villa 5-0 for dinner. What you should ask for more!!??)

    #2. He gave us FERNANDO TORRES two years ago. (also LUCAS and MASCH)

    #3. He gave us nothing, but just a win over the best team in the world. It was three years ago. (And also a runner up in Europe)

    #4. He gave me a new thought that FA cup can be won by 1 person four years ago. (Stevie was really a superhero)

    #5. He gave me the greatest comeback in football that I’ve ever seen. (Also the first moment I cried in football) It was five years ago.

    So, we just need to be positive. This is just a blip and I think Rafa just bring the club forward all this time. Let we see what happens in May. Dramatic 4th place? Or it just another European cup?

    Oh yeah, one more thing. We’re just played better UNDER THE PRESSURE. We got 2 trophies and the hell of comebacks.

    So, please, just positives, and let Rafa do his job. This is the moment that we show him “You’ll Never Walk Alone”
