....you either love him or hate him. Their seems to be no middle ground with Rafa.
For me, i think at the minute there isn't a better man for the job. I'd give him to the end of the season, then review his position. But to sack him now, would just be sheer lunacy.
And wouldn't the pro- Ferguson media love that? There witch hunt would be complete..another victim burned on the pyre.
These so called "experts" (usually bitter ex-footballers, who couldn't remain in the game because they where about as popular as SAF at the annual LFC awards) Would have there two pence worth, because that all it would be worth. Then move on to the next target.
But what would be left behind if the increasingly useless yanks did sack Rafa? A club in turmoil, would sink further into the deep brown smelly stuff.
People point to the FACTS...
67 player he's bought..But how many for the 1st team squad?
He's spent £200 plus million... But what is his net spend?
His buys are rubbish..But name one manager who's got it right every time?
He lost the plot with his "rant"..yet not once during that speech did he raise his voice, babble on..He delivered a clear statement, which was in the main true.
I remember the late '80's and a certain Scottish gentleman getting stick from the media and fans, banners hung from the home end at the ground calling for his head...But he toughed it out, he turned it around...He became a success.
Rafa is the marmite man, and me i like marmite.
