Unfortunately it was written in faeces so didn't get past customs and quarantine in China.

I’m getting the feeling Rafa didn’t move to China because Ashley wanted him out or for the money, but because Gallowgate End was being a massive creepy stalky b******.

I'll be watching the games, and I'll be talking about the teams. If it's a disaster it will be quite humorous and exactly what Mike Ashley deserves and to be honest I'll quite enjoy it. I am totally indifferent to results and the team success going forward.

Now, in certain games should the team do well, I will be happy more for the players, because I feel bad for them mostly, and I still want to see some of them do well. I will still feel comfortable giving the team credit when they do well. I just don't care about any outcome at this point and none of my money goes into anything to do with Mike Ashley's operations.

Hey, if obsessing over Rafa is wrong then I don’t want to be right.

:thup:
So raise your fists and march around
Dont dare take what you need
I'll jail and bury those committed
And smother the rest in greed
Crawl with me into tomorrow
Or i'll drag you to your grave
I'm deep inside your children
They'll betray you in my name

Absolutely superb article by Rafa in the Athletic analysing Liverpool’s tactics and style of play – to think we let this man walkaway when he wanted to stay and replaced him with the current imbecile.

Cheers Mike – fat w*****.

Rondon and Ings would have still cost less than Joelinton.

It's disgraceful.

It's disgraceful how the media and a large section of our fans reacted to the club LETTING GO of a world class manager for having ambition, and then replacing him with statistically one the worst managers in Premier League history.

I don't care if it's your dead grans dying wish that you continue going to the matches for her. You're just as complicit as Ashley in destroying this club.

The fact that so many clowns on Twitter are criticizing Rafa now and saying Bruce is doing a much better job just shows where we are. Depressing that one man has been able to divide and conquer the fanbase.

so many of our defenders finding their scoring boots at the same time for a stretch of games there was actually kinda miraculous :lol: I mean, Bruce had absolutely no part in it yet he's given credit. A gameplan of "cling onto the game for dear life and try to nick something"(34% possession) has resulted in almost safety and the idiots of the world think it's genius rather than "winning a lottery 5 consecutive weeks" levels of improbable luck.

Genuinely stuns me how many people  on them supporter pages on fb etc say that... especially  after we threw  away a 2goal lead against  oxford, people were praising him for  "taking the cups seriously" and for being the the 1st man in 14years to guide us past the 4th round of the cups something  "rafa didn't  do"  even talking  to people  this season who say hes doing alright, and that were "so and so many points  better off than last season" etc its actually scary how moronic the majority  of this clubs fan base are.... unbelievable  how much I miss having rafa as our manager

"Money allows you to make mistakes and get away with it. If you buy, in theory, five good quality and expensive players and one or two aren’t right straight away, the other three can still make a big difference. When you have to wheel and deal, the chances are you’ll make more errors because you’re signing players from a different level."

Something his previous employers could never grasp.

Atsu
Lejeune
Manquillo
Merino
Murphy
Joselu
Kenedy
Dubravka
Slimani
Schar
Muto
Rondon
Fernandez
Ki

Bargain budget. How many real successes? 7? 3 outright failures maybe? Not bad given the budget.

loved the little snippet about him from the crouch podcast; while other clubs were putting players in single rooms rafa stuck with the old sharing model and made sure to put players together by position hoping they'd sit at night talking about the game and how to improve etc. :lol:

Atsu - played his part getting us up, but now surplus
Lejeune - success
Manquillo - success
Merino - missed opportunity
Murphy - huge f*** up
Joselu - played his part, would have been useful this season
Kenedy - erm, eventually s***
Dubravka - success
Slimani - f*** up
Schar - success
Muto - f*** up
Rondon - success
Fernandez - success
Ki - solid squad player until bruce appeared

How much was Murphy, £12m? Bad signing obviously but not that much money in real premier league context.
