    • A supporter wants a manager to be sacked if the club is going backwards. There are people on this forum who want the club to go backwards so the manager can be sacked.

      This is not how a supporter behaves.

      When I saw the team lineup yesterday my response was... Rafa is taking a gamble here. If we win it is a good one as important players will have been rested. If we lose then he is accountable.

      WE WON.

      People who are saying we won IN SPITE of the manager are wrong. Every single Liverpool player on the pitch except Carragher was bought by Rafa. The three substitutes Torres, Kuyt and Alonso: were bought by Rafa! It doesn’t matter that we won in stoppage time. People praised Man Utd, Chelsea & Arsenal for doing exactly that in recent weeks!

      People talking about Rafa lovers and Rafa haters: I’m not interested in either. I’m interested in the question ‘ARE THE TEAM IMPROVING OR GOING DOWNHILL?’. If the team are improving under a manager then he is the right man for the job. If they are dropping down the table, then the situation needs to be addressed.

      We are ahead of Chelsea and Arsenal for the first time in years. We are closing in on Manchester United. Whether you like our starting line up or not; whether you think the tactics are positive or negative: It means very little in comparison to the results (over the course of a season). We need a new manager if we’re getting worse and currently we are not.

      WE ARE HAVING OUR BEST PREMIER LEAGUE SEASON IN YEARS!!! WE”VE ONLY LOST ONE GAME!!!

      Jose isn’t the only one trying to create dissent in Liverpool fans. Recently Paisley_Shanks started a tread damning how much Rafa has lost in transfer dealings. He said Bellamy was sold at a loss (even though he was sold at a profit!) & said Torres has gone down in value (obviously just ridiculous). He ignored players who were bought & sold by Rafa at a profit like Peter Crouch. The thread was titled: “the numbers don’t lie”. WELL THEY DID. People like him and Jose will ignore Rafa’s successes because they want him to fail. Failure will prove them right and so they celebrate it.

      Who on here said we should buy Reina or Riera or Agger or Skertel or Alonso?! Most fans barely knew who they were! Well all those five successful players IN TOTAL cost Rafa a bit more than ONE Rio Ferdinand. If we sold them now it would be for enormous profit.

      Yesterday WE WON and for a few hours at least we’re top of the table. If it all goes horribly wrong and we slip down the table, lets discuss a new manager. Whilst we’re challenging for the title... lets get behind the team.

      Or perhaps people would prefer we sack him now and bring in a proven world class manager like Scolari?

      • Totally agree 100% too many Muppets on this board want us as a Team to fail.

        We are getting better each year as I see it and these numbers don't LIE! Better placed in League and rated higher in European standings I'ld say that points to us getting better.

      • Hi Pauli

        That is the best post I've seen on this board in months. Spot on.

      • Paul, capture exactly how I feel. Good job mate

      • yeh but if rafa had got his tactics right u wouldnt have played 120 mins less against everton & be in the nxt round of fa cup.
        so the players would have had a wk off before the pompey game.
        also u got to admit u could be ahead of man utd on points if he had been more positive and stuck with his best players against teams like stoke twice,wigan away etc so thats 6points off the top of my head. il always say well done rafe for his european style and i think u will be tough to knock out of champs league but i just dont like his tactics,team selection and approach to league games. i think u will win the champs league again if u stick with him but i dont think u will ever win the league with him.
        out of the big 4 my fave is liverpool,i dislike the other 3 which is why i want u to win the league so much & its a nice distraction from spurs relegation battle
