    you can't even compare alex or wenger to rafa, thats a joke. NO PREMIER LEAGUE TITLES! When has fergie had a bad season? Finishing second and winning the fa cup? haha

    Liverpool are the joke, not like they were going anywhere before he joined. That said he is pretty awful and I find it pathetic how the fans constantly blame the owners when in terms of net spend over the last 5 years only Chelsea and Man City have spent more.

    Haven't Arsenal won even less than Liverpool since Rafa joined? :whistling:

    Liverpool have one quite a bit under rafa. Champions league being one of them! All of a sudden he has a bad start to the season and there's talk of him being sacked. Grow up Liverpool you've had loads of glory over the years. They'd be fools to sack him. Board will need to go before anything starts to get better

    Liverpool have won 1 more trophy than us despite spending millions more. Weren't you the one saying before the season that Liverpool would win the title and Arsenal wouldn't even finish top 4?

    If you had any footballing knowledge at all you would've seen Liverpool were worse off and overreliant more than ever on 2 players, whereas Arsenal had got rid of 2 hinderences and had shown great improvement over the last half of last season.

    No, you can tell the pundits that know about football as they didn't make such idiotic predictions. Hansen the embarrassment he is predicting Liverpool to win the title shows he is not impartial and clearly his bias to Liverpool hinders any knowledge he may possess. I'm no pundit but before the season begun I predicted the table to be Arsenal, Chelsea, Utd, Liverpool and that was based on actually looking at the squads and not making stupid non-sensical comments like you saying Arsenal aren't even going to be top 4.

    I admit that obviously I'm slightly biased but I can tell our team is good enough. There is no way we'd finish out of the top 4. Now that we've been hit with injuries to key players it's going to be tough but it's definitely a 3 horse race this year just as I thought before the season. Your final comment there shows me you either don't watch the Premier League or you just generally aren't very intelligent.

    as much as i hate rafa (being a utd fan), i think he is a great manager, liverpoo will be screwed even more without him. Regardless of their bad season as much as i hate to say it, they managed to pull off two massive wins this season by beating utd and everton.

    I hope he doesn't get sacked as its good for English football him being there

    My final comment was saying that there is no chance of you winning the league - your squad isn't that great (that's why you've had a midfielder leading the line these last few weeks :roll:) and you're still a couple of players short of even having an title-winning first XI.

    There's a very strong Chelsea team this season...... and then the rest. The poorest United team in a long time, a Liverpool team all over the place, an inconsistent Arsenal team, and 3 or 4 others who might or might no last the distance.

    Van Persie's out for a while, Eduardo is looking a shadow of his former self, Walcott is poor atm, and you'll lose Song and Eboue in January. Let's see how you're doing in a month's time when you've played Villa twice and United again :thumbsup:

    because he is a good manager, he has helped them to a champions league title, 1 final and semi finals.

    If they manage to win the Europa league this year, it'll get even better.

    Rafas biggest mistake,imo,is not to stuck stevie G along side Mascherano and ticking benayoun behind torres.

    tactical mess up by rafa which is causing this mess.

    Xabi going left a big hole in the team and stevie can do the job well,meaning pick a pass,tackle and also make forward runs.

    But no,stevie me wants all the glory for himself.

    As andy gray said,stevie G,as a midfielder,world class. as a guy behind the striker,not world class.

    +1

    We've had no creativity from midfield, and until Agger returned recently, no-one who can play the ball out of defence - this is what hurt us at the beginning of the season, and our confidence is that low we're struggling to bounce back. If Benitez is adamant about persisting with Kuyt, he should at least play him alongside Torres, even if it pushes Stevie out onto the right (as a starting position, giving him a free role).

    Personally, I'd go for this (bearing in mind Masch is now suspended, and will probably go in Jan):

    -----------------Reina-----------------

    Johnson--Carra--Agger--Aurelio
    Gerrard--Lucas--Aquilani--Riera
    -------Benayoun----------------------
    -----------------Torres-----------------

    Or Benayoun on the left, with Ngog/Kuyt up top with Torres.

    We are only just reaching Xmas..........i don't think you realise the season is far from over yet and any team in the top half could go on a run and the top 4 now could be totally different.

    Would have to disagree here. How is it the poorest United team in a long time? If they were fit and not forced to play carrick and fletcher as centre backs they wouldn't be struggling as much. As much as I hate to say it chelsea will win the league, they are too strong, Liverpool on the other hand have the poorest squad out of united, chelsea, arsenal, spurs and city.

    Gets funnier and funnier, how bad liverpool have become. Think rafa is too stubborn a manager. An example is him continuing with the zonal marking. The amount of criticism he get's over it and the amount of goals he concedes, its obvious to all its not working. Benayoun is one of liverpools best players but he isnt a regular starter

    The league will finish like this

    [COLOR="Blue"]Chelsea [/COLOR]
    [COLOR="Red"]Man United[/COLOR]
    [COLOR="DimGray"]Tottenham[/COLOR]
    [COLOR="RoyalBlue"]Man City[/COLOR]
    [COLOR="Red"]Arsenal[/COLOR]

    I support chelsea , think both arsene and rafa need to spark up they're ideas. Rafa has bad tactics and arsene wenger has a squad of inexperienced kids who every year he says will get experienced. Neither club has one much/anything in recent years and I wonder how many it is until they will. Liverpool certainly I would say 3 years before they win anything, arsenal might win the FA cup but not with they squads they play currently

    Think he's spot on really, liverpool are a joke, as for the limited adjectives, my stalking list doesn't expand that far. And hardly a bitter post. Just opinionated (yes I used spell check for that one )

    Thank you Ryman for your constructive post, it's hard to describe Insomniac and City anything other than pathetic and a joke though, not my fault.
