    He's doing such a bad job at Liverpool it's unreal. The board need to wake up and get him out. It's not good for the club to have the decision making monopolised by the owners

    Lets give Rafa 5 more years.

    Remember, Sir Alex was 1 game from being sacked at United after his first 4 years, yawn.......

    Rafa has show his tactical genious in Europe against 10 men in europe and beating Boro 3-2 at home.
    Give him 5 more years.

    Manchester United will surely pass 18 English Championship titles if Rafa gets 5 more years......

    That will make Manchester United the most sucessful side in English Football history

    Liverpool need to stick with Rafa.

    He is a very good coach and deserves more time, and remember the grass isn't always greener, just look at Newcastle.

    Considering they have been breathing down your neck, maybe you've lost training.

    well....heres a team that has never won the prem league..winning the 'biggest' cup competition in european football.

    Thats not liverpool's fault, UEFA's is at fault. Its called 'champions league' but how many 'champions' of their country actually win?

    In the 70s, when liverpool won, they won as 'champions of england'

    So its not just Liverpool but any team that reaches the final who aren't current domestic league champions that devalue the competition? At what stage would you prefer such teams to get knocked out so they don't devalue the competition - is quarter final stage enough? Or would you prefer the old European cup back with just champions competing in a knock out format?

    That was the old European Cup wasn't it?

    Yeah... sod it, scrap the CL it's just a cash cow for the corporate punters... bring back the European Cup!
    Mid-Week Sports Special, Brian Moore, Elton Welsby, Bovril, proper 'It's A Knockout' type scoreboards, no-one knowing how much time the ref's adding on at the end of 90 minutes, back passes.... and of course, the muddy pitches....

    Oh be still, my aching heart.

    Yeah, beating Juventus, Chelsea (twice), AC Milan and Barcelona over 2 legs on the way to 2 finals in 3 seasons is really de-valuing the Champions League.

    Talking about devaluing competitions - are you happy with your Worthless Cup win considering that ManU, Liverpool and Arsenal all sent out weakened sides during the competition?

    PS - That guy Torres you were telling us about, you know the one who was going to get 3 goals before getting loaned out in January, is doing alright isn't he?
