Honestly I cant even be bothered quoting it or even looking for it but you said something along the lines of support Kenny and the team or **** off.
Well he quite obviously supports LFC, this was never in doubt. He doesnt support Kenny and he has a right to when you look how dreadful we have being playing this season.
2nd Season: FA Cup
3rd Season: Nothing
4th Season: Nothing
5th season: Nothing
6th Season: nothing
Won his trophies with a majority of Houlliers players & a top quality Gerrard. Take Gerrard's influence away & Rafa wins nothing. A Quarter of a billion pounds spent how much more money did he need?
How many years will it be till Real Madrid yet again play at Anfield in the Champions League?
Your favourite Liverpool FC players are not going to play the modern phenomenon that is Lionel Messi while wearing the Liverpool shirt.
Do you know that Rafa Benitez is probably one of the only Premier League managers who could boast that if you added all the money from the transfer fees and value of players he bought for Liverpool FC he would come out with a profit. Think about that.
Never wanted him to leave..
I once thought about all the players that Rafa Benitez bought for Liverpool. Sometime last year I added up what they cost in transfer fees. I seem to remember I came out with £228m.
I then added up the amount of money recovered by sales of these same very players. I came out at £191m.
Meaning a deficit of £37m but with Reina, Agger, Skrtel, Lucas, Kuyt, Maxi, Glen Johnson still at the club.
You would not get that much for Maxi now, even Kuyt would be reasonably cheap these days if sold but you would certainly make more then £37m from the others.
Edit: I forgot Jonjo Shelvey who would count as a Benitez signing although he was cheap and is still not worth anything significant but is regarded as very promising.

I must admit to now not wanting to think about Dalglish and Commolli being able to make a profit from their own signings. Certainly there would not be a loss on Suarez and Enrique but the others would probably represent losses.
I exclude Sebastian Coates as it is still too early to make any kind of judgement on a player with so few first team appearances.
Of course a young man like Jordan Henderson may improve in years to come but at £16m with an extra £4m in add ons is still rather expensive at the current time.

Hmm, maybe my last comment was too harsh.
Liverpool FC won the Carling Cup by defeating six clubs.
Of those six clubs two were very good, worthy opponents who on paper are better then Liverpool FC (Chelsea, Man City).
Of the other four clubs only one was a Premier League club (Stoke)
The other three were teams in lower divisions including the final opponents (Cardiff), Exeter and Brighton being the others.
It is mainly with these results that Liverpool FC are claiming a season with progress.
Does anyone know if rafa still comes to Anfield or melwood to watch the youngsters? Does rafa have any contact with Ian Ayre? He still lives in Liverpool, he won't relocate, he has this BURNING desire still to manage LFC and make them a force in world football again!
This summer after KK has won us the cup, I would love rafa to be our manager and KK moved upstairs again! Everyone wins that way!
But what startles me is that most people on here seem to have forgotten the "forum fan's" cry for blood towards the end of his tenure with us. Everyone should be careful with what they wish for.
I like Rafa.
The problem with Rafa seems to be that he wants back in at a big club but wants the type of owners that are incredibly rare to find owning and running those types of clubs.
If he finds a billionaire arab somewhere he will dominate european football for years.
