Torres. Profit. Alonso. Profit. Mascherano. Profit. Agger, key player. Skrtel, key player. Johnson, key player. Lucas, key player. Kuyt, boss. Even the likes of Bellamy and Crouch helped LFC to a Champions League final.

Oh, Riera wasn't a bad signing at all- that shows your knowledge. He was a key player on the left side in the season where LFC finished 2nd. Then he decided to give a youngster a slap in training. Goodbye, Albert.

Dossena was signed for less cash than Bebe. Enough said, stop whining.

Aquilani was Rafa's downfall- it was a huge mistake, even if he was only 5 million pounds. The rest was based on appearences, that he never made. So the 35 million from Alonso went nowhere. Hmm...
Rafa did have his fair share of good and bad. Thing is though when you look at it as a whole it was mostly bad. He made roughly 10 good signings but in his tenure he signed up around 7 times that amount. One good player for every 6/7 bad players isn't exactly great.

Is that the Gareth Barry who won a league medal last season and who made pretty much the most appearences out of the whole squad?
Yup the same guy. Now tell me Would you take Barry Over Xabi?
