    time up rafa

    Interesting post Bill. Clearly there is growing frustration with Rafa and his policies. The problem isn't all with the manager however.

    Taking football out of the equation for a second, say you work as someone high up for a big company or bank and there are whispers on the stock market that there could be a takeover. How would you feel about it. Would it affect your performance? How would your staff react to the whispers? Would they be able to carry on giving their best performance and not worry about looking over their shoulder? What changes would be made? Will everyone keep their jobs? Will there be big changes at the top?

    All of this uncertainty would filter down through the ranks of any business and would undoubtably affect performance. It's exactly the same with LFC. We have had 2 years of turmoil and uncertainty caused by potential sell ups, refinancing crisis and promises of investment broken. It's no wonder we can't concentrate on just playing football! What we need is these clowns Hicks and Gillette to make their minds up whether they are in for the long haul or whether they want to just make a quick buck and ride off into the sunset. I sincerely hope it's the latter as I want to see the club settled with it's plans for the future. We will never progress until this chapter is closed.

    • BILL B...CHECK THE POST FROM ...lfcfansince7...considering that DSTEER is conspicuous by his absence doesnt this post from this guy remind u so much of the manner of DSTEERs posts...the phrase :Clearly there is growing frustration with Rafa and his policies.The problem isnt all with the manager however:
      This is a dead giveaway as this poster then goes on to site so many reasions why in his opinion we shouldnt be blaming the manager...plus have to say never noticed this ID before. I think DSTEER just couldnt bring himself round to defending this incompetent in his own name anymore. Could I be right ?

      • Am afraid you've got your wires crossed Colin. I am definitely not DSteer! For the record I have always supported Rafa but yes think we have blown it this year and am very disappointed with that. Some of it is his doing but I am more inclined to point the finger at our owners for creating the unrest that must be occurring through the ranks. Once all cards are on the table regarding ownership and finance then things will settle down and we can move forward. It could be our new owners if we get them will change the manager. That's their prerogative. I can see a mass exodus as a result which will have positives and negatives. If that happens then any quick fix will require massive investment in both manager and players.

        Please do not assume that everyone on here is an alias. I just want to talk occasionally about our team and how we can move forward. Cheers!!!

    • Hi 77,

      Yeah, I would say the frustration has been building for a while & 3 years without a piece of silverware is something that needs fixing. Not just from a supporters point of view but more importantly the players standpoint.

      I fully understand the shenanigans going on behind the scene must be unsettling also, but don't the people in the high-pressure jobs get rewarded accordingly ? - Isn't that why they take the risks / reap the rewards ?

      Anyway, I agree wholeheartedly that the current 'mess' at Anfield needs to be sorted quickly - but I think any prospective buyers may now wait and see if they can snap up a bargain after Xmas....

      • Stability is definitely the key. The thing is if Rafa goes then quite a lot of the key players may be inclined to go too. It must be affecting a lot of the players minds. Get in new owners who deliver on what they promise and then everyone is clear on the way forward rather than a load of false promises that we have had from these clowns.
