At present Rafa is suffering because of his own mistakes. Selling Alonso, who is playing well for Real Madrid, was a mistake. The mid field of last season of Alonso and Javier Mas was as good as any and better than most in Premier League. Also, there are too many people playing for the money instead of playing for the club. Why do we have to buy one forgeiner after another? What is wrong with home grown tallent. Surely there must be more Carra's and Gerrards in the liverpool system Rafa just does not give them a chance unlike Wenger who has two teams both of whom could beat liverpool on present form.
