One down, One to go! - Ross' Response

Wednesday, 16 January 2008

As we all Liverpool supporters here, we naturally want the best for the team.

Start with the facts, we have not won the premiership since its conception. Are we close, no. if we leave Rafa alone he can build a team. Last season he needed a striker to bury those o so many chances we were creating. The answer to that problem, Torres. The next acquisition for an unstable midfield, mash, another world class player. He knows what he needs for the team, given the backing he has a habit of getting it right recently, before u so say anything, Voronin was free!

Rafa is far from perfect but he needs time, Rome was not built in a day. He has been there 4 yrs resulting in,1 champions league title, another appearance in the final and a few other trophies.

He tinkers too much. Its frustrating as hell, especially when you consider the squad at our disposal. It has a negative effect on the players. But some might say, if you can't stand the heat, get out the kitchen. Torres was rotated like hell when he first turned up, but he turned it around and now he is the first on the team sheet, If you prove Rafa wrong he loves it.

As for the guy who left after 11 yrs, he went for a job without consulting Rafa, big disrespect.

If Rafa went I think you could say goodbye within 1 yr to the whole Spanish contingent, Mash and even Stevie, he wants to win things and at his age he can't wait another3 yrs for another manager to get it right.

The problem lies with the owners. They have no idea how to run a football club and how the media operates, they play straight into their hands. The way the club is financed is a joke.

Who is the alternative: Jose, great personality, but seriously boring football, Guus, he won't leave the Russian mafia. No other big names out there, Lippi, Cuper etc,they just don't cut the mustard. Certainly no other manager from the prem.

It hurts to say this, but look at Arsenal, a club not transformed over night, but over a period of time. From boring 1 nil, to, at times, some of the most exciting football on the planet. All because the manager had a vision and he was backed to the hill.

Lets buck the trend and back our team, god only knows its hard, but when we see Stevie lifting that trophy, my lord, that will be the sweetest feeling ever.

Just have faith
