It's the media making a big fuss over nothing because they haven't got anything better to talk about. Every year it's a contest to see which manager they can get fired for bad publicity.
Rafa is on the right path but he has to have more time to build a champion, given the relatively meager resources the club have given him.
Even before buying Torres and Babel in the summer, he had to sell Bellamy, Cisse and other dead weight for a net spend of only 7 million pounds. That amount was approximately what he spent the previous summer.
Compare that to what Ferguson spent at ManUtd for Hargreaves alone!
