MON will not leave Villa, where he has it very good and has a good core of young english players (and a couple of older english players). Also various spats between us and Villa will not help us trying to pry him away.
Jol: Not bothered. PandS was universally panned for cozing up to him. He had a chance at raiding the top four spot and then what happened? He collapsed under the pressure and was replaced in record time.
Of course you could just support your current manager....radical idea, i know.
O'Neill, Jol, Hiddink.
Those names command TOTAL respect from the players. They are most likely to get the best of of a bad bunch. And believe me, we have a BAD bunch. After 6 years we have the most weakened team in years. The reason why they are weak is they have no strength behind them ie Rafa. We'd be doing a lot better with one of those 3 in charge

How many premier league titles have these managers won? then why would they do any better? La liga and serie a are the only comparable leagues of which rafa has won one of them. He should only, if at all be replaced by someone with a proven top division pedigree.
Just curious on how you get to such a sad verdict on our club. Basically over the summer we lost 2 players from the first team, Alonso and Arbeloa. They were replaced with Aqualani and Johnson.
Now most, but maybe you disagree, think Johnson is an improvement over Arbeloa, while the jury is still out on Aqualani as he's just not featured enough to really get a good comparison yet.
So basically by removing 1 player we've gone from 2nd best in the prem, and accumulating enough points to have won the prem in the majority of years the prem has been in existence to being the weakest Liverpool side in years.
I did think Alonso was a very good player, and I really felt we'd miss him, but do you really credit him that much?
Martin O'Neil seems a great manager but is unproven at our level. Its one thing over acheiving with a strong budget or winning the scottish league but a whole different story to not be allowed to lose a match ever! The moment Russia got knocked out of the play off, this post had become inevitable but surely we would rather be linked with a manager that had actually managed to beat the rather pathetic Slovenia. Rafa is the man for this job and unless there is talk of a 'proven' world class manager then I would never want him it to change.
