It's also silly going by history and reputations. If we were to base everything on where clubs "should be" then Leeds would still be one of the top clubs in the prem chasing for the champions league places while Wigan would be in the lower leagues.
Hahahahahahahah, left them in a mess. My goodness. 2 CL finals. FA Cup. Com Shield. 2nd, 3rd places in the league. Players like Mascherano. Alonso. Torres (when he was good). Kuyt. Agger. Skrtel. Johnson. Pepe. LUCAS LEIVA. Even those kids people love now Suso and Sterling were Rafa players.
Liverpool were in great shape even when Rafa left, aside from Alonso leaving for a crocked Aquilani
And to be honest I'd say BR has had big money....
He spent 25 in this January alone... What manager spends 25 million in a January transfer window?
Joe Allen, Borini, how much? Weren't they about 24 million??
And don't forget the money it took to get Sahin into the club and his wages.
