Then there were big money signings like Torres, Johnson, Mascherano. The guy had plenty of money at his disposal.


The problem was, Rafa couldn't make a signing like Keane (who was sold 6 months later for pretty much similar value, oh and finished 2nd that season. Thanks Robbie) and afford it to fail- other managers could, well the ones challenging could.

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...

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?

I should probably rephrase my statement.

Being under Mr.Moneybags Abramovich is much better than the cowboys.

Isn't Nige a Blackburn fan?

It was to further justify my point about not being able to fail with a signing when other managers are able to do so.

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.

Yup the same guy. Now tell me Would you take Barry Over Xabi?

Did you watch Alonso week in week out when Rafa said that? He only stepped up into a world class player after he said that. Post 2008. LFC then claimed 2nd spot, beating Madrid 4-0, United 4-1 etc. The glory days n' all that.

My god, you're a Liverpool fan...

Xabi was bossing it from years back. While not as good as he got he was still a boss. Yes he was beginning to hit his peak but just imagine how good he could have been for us if Rafa had decided not to pursue Barry.
