When I was at School, a kid got excluded for a pretty rubbish reason. We all protested and decided we were going to leave the School and do our A-levels elsewhere. After a couple of days we realised it was silly and pointless, and we stuck around.
Rafa is not a warm and friendly guy. I doubt many players will up sticks in protest. Especially not if the new manager comes in and gets them winning.
Rafa staying will inhibit this club tenfold.
He really cannot cut it.
He has to go.
Can Kenny do it? Unlikely but this dross we play anyone can manage us!
As you rightly pointed out Mr dvdman, Kenny is an unlikely replacement candidate, so who is? The bigger question as I mentioned previously is who of any quality would want to come here under the current structure? The answer is quite simple that no suitable manager would even consider entertaining taking the Anfield hotseat the way the club is currently being run.
Who cares if those players leave - none of them impressed me by that disgusting display today.
....Which is why, despite my horror at yesterday's performance, I don't want us to dump Rafa halfway through one crap run of form!
Have to agree with the common view of disbelief at some of his decisions, but when you look at the bigger (very ugly) picture of where our club is at behind the scenes, especially finance-wise, no other (worthy) manager with a brain in his head will touch us right now.
Agree with the thread.....careful what you wish for....how about some blood sweat and **llocks from the players instead (yes, I'm looking at you Stevie G)
and remembering that LFC means more than just a 6 month slump!
Bring back Houllier
Just a thought but one of the richest clubs in the world could only attract Roberto Mancini as their new manager, but people here think the likes of Hiddinck or the Portugese man would walk into here if Rafa left or was sacked now? If a decent squad and bottomless pit of transfer cash wasn't enough to tempt this quality of manager to leave their current posts and take the helm at eastlands, why would they want to come to Liverpool now? Be careful what you wish for
Higgy, I accept your stance in this thread that if there is a change you are prepared to be patient enough for evolution to take place, which could take a good while. However a lot of folk on here think a change would bring instant success, which may not well be the case. Just out of interest, if Rafa went last weekend and we replaced him with Mancini, would you be happy with that? Me personally no, but would be interested to gauge opinion on it. As I just posted, if the richest club in the world could only attract him, what kind of manager could we hope to attract in our current climate?
Don't get me wrong, I am not saying Rafa is exempt from any blame for the current situation, far from it, I'm just extremely concerned that the current tirade calling for his head haven't weighed up all the options in our current situation? Your thoughts?
I just hate all the doom and gloom surrounding the possibilty that he may leave.
I heard it all, and even thought it myself at times, about Houllier.
We all loved him once. Thought he was the only one.
There will be somebody else after Rafa.
I wrote this in December last year and it appears to have more relevance now as the decision for Rafa to be removed has been made.
Where I was wrong in the initial post is Pepe and I believe Agger are committed to the club. However as each day passes the more I think Gerrard, Masch and Torres will not be here at the start of next season. And with no guarantees that that money from sales will be given to the new manager to reinvest into the squad, the immediate future looks very bleak indeed.
For that reason I think we should look for an up and coming younger manager to start the club up from scratch. It may take a few seasons to restore some pride and get the club challenging again but I think that is the way forward for us now. Forget big name managers, I don't think Daglish is the answer either.
