Liverpool's Rafa Has Lost It Completely
You have to wonder if Benitez is losing it completely. His tactics and team selections have always been questionable but now he has taken to lambasting former Liverpool favourites and using "management of the debt" as an excuse for Liverpool's struggles this season!
Hang on? Didn't Benitez choose to pay £17m for Glenn Johnson? Good piece of debt management that! Rafa could get a job on the Board of RBS on the basis of that! And what about Alberto Aquilani? He cost how much? £20m? Add those two together and you get...£37m Rafa! £37m on a right back who goes walk about at least once every game and a midfielder who is unproven in the Prem and who has barely kicked a ball for the club before their exit from the Champions League and the race for the Premiership.
Debt management? How about the decision not to sign Michael Owen on a free? Ferguson collected £80m for Ronaldo but was happy to sign the former Liverpool legend for nothing. That sounds like debt management to me, especially when Owen repays him by scoring a hattrick in the Champions League whilst Liverpool crash to yet another defeat, so missing out on seeding in the Europa League! £37m spent when managing debt? Wouldn't we love to be able to do that?
The fact is, Benitez has bought badly. The explanations can stop there! Perhaps somebody should buy him a CHEAP mirror for Christmas! And as for the picture at the top, is Benitez planning to become a copper when Liverpool sack him?
