I feel that the reason people defend Rafa is that it'll cause a lot of disruption in the changing room.. Especially from our spanish players who came here on account of Rafa being here..
Although they're on contracts as you no doubt know contracts can be bought. Do we wanna lose Torres? He could well go however he did pledge he'd be at Anfield but would that stance change if Rafa was no longer here? Then again it seems Rafa doesn't have what it takes to win the EPL.. Of course if we win the EPL I'll retract that :).
However Chelsea, Man Utd have lost less games than us... how many more games we gonna lose? Man Utd still have yet to raise their game cos they get better around this time..
