I think you're right. Probably the worse bit of man management from Rafa was treating Crouch the way he did.
As far as replacements are concerned Heskey is back on the market in January but do we really need to move backward? Are there any other players anyone would recommend? Remember money is tight. ;oD
For man management, see Robbie Keane, and Ryan Babel. I don't understand why it is Rafa has bought these players if he doesn't believe in them.
For me Babel needs a run of games, and he will show his worth. The lad is quality, and to see Benny starting ahead of him, and Ngog coming on before him last night must beggar belief.
Robbie as well was right to be frustrated. Noone is telling me Robbie wouldn't have caused more late problems than Ngog, despite looking out of sorts again.
I think we've got big problems, and that dodgy month is coming. I do actually think we'll lose at the weekend, but there you go.
In Rafa I trust, and I really do, but I don't understand his thinking AT ALL!

LUKE R IF u dont understand his thinking then ...WHY do u bloody trust him ??? It doesnt exactly take anEinstein towork out that his defensive minded philosophy of the game requires that his players do as they are told and work around his :hold-position: strategy. Hence the lack of emphasis in encouraging intelligent running/movement OFF the ball to give the man in possession the maximum options...thus we constantly see the :wide-men: chasing back in midfield to tackle-back instead of doing their job which is to hit the byeline and cut back fast accurate crosses to bodies that we SHOULD have in the box but NEVER DO !?? Plus we see meaningless backand forth back and forth short exchanges deep in our own half between defenders before the ball is hefted high up the line by one of them and a quick loss of possession. OR Carragher or Masch win the ball and just heft it high up the middle usually resulting in quick loss of possession ??? ENOUGH OF THIS DROSS !!! Lets see some serious attacking formations the like of which Wendy is proposing !
