    in fairness Vidic and Evra for 7m each........bargains.

    Im fairly sure Pool spent similar amounts on Pennant, Benayoun and I believe 11m for Kuyt.

    Money does help BUT only if it is spent wisely.

    LOL! When you look at the amount of money that Rafa spent on his 50 odd players that he has bought and the half a billion Roman has pumped into his team, it obviously doesn't help as much as you'd think.

    I like the way you left out the huge amounts of money United have made on the likes of Beckham, Butt, Smith, Rossi, Mikel, etc, etc, etc.

    Benitez's net transfer dealings are £56.9M in his four years at LFC. Ferguson's is £73.4M for the same period and he didn't start 2004-05 with a team containing the likes of Traore, Smicer, Diao, Diouf, Cheyrou etc

    Liverpool finished 11 points behind ManU this season, in 04-05 it was 19 points. So in Rafa's 4 years, Liverpool have closed the gap on Utd having spent less money. Rafa's first league season yielded 58 points, this season it was 76.

    How do you like them facts?

    Nice "facts". Shall we fill in some more detail...
    04/05 - 19 points difference
    05/06 - 9 points difference
    06/07 - 21 points difference
    07/08 - 11 points difference.

    Only a deluded scouser could see a pattern of improvement in those seemingly random figures.

    But so long as you're happy that your team have improved to within 11 points of the top team, then I guess we'll let you be. Well done on your ambition. I'd also like to commend your acceptance that your club is being run as a mediocre business, which means that you don't have the funds to compete with the big English clubs.
