first time for glasses, maybe we need an ancient arses thread. I have to wear the arse end of 2 coke bottles, welded in a bike frame, just to see the computer, never mind what's on it. As for the skywashed kids, by the time they take over completely, I can't see us being any different than Chelsea, sacking managers every time we get beat. But I think Rafa's got to much sense to leave himself open to that and I don't think the Russkie fella has the sense to see beyond the character assination that the media done on the man. Also the Chelsea fans hate Rafa. I'm glad of that. I'd hate to see him managing them, but I think his name has been blackened beyond ever getting another job in this country.
As for Kenny and our current owners, I can't see them losing patientce for at least another couple of seasons, and by then Kenny should have us well on track. There's not really much wrong, but I think FSG will have to stump up to replace some aging players soon. It was funny the other night. I said, Gerrard was the best player I'd ever seen in our shirt, but I also said he was finished as a top-top midfielder that could keep bossing games and pulling us out the shit. I stand by that. The lad's 32. We over played him from day one, much like we did with Owen, in our panic to catch up Johno's mob. It's taking it's toll now. Watch the lads legs. He's lost an awful lot of that spring and power that made him the freak player he was. But how dare I suggest such a thing. It's funny really, kids attaking me for stating the obvious. Sadly, time is catching some of them, Carra, Gerrard, Bellamy, Kuyt. That's not to say they're completely finished. They can all provide some service, but the writing's on the wall and I reckon that's going to be Kenny's biggest problem. I remember me first heroes going over the hill, Tommo, Hunt, Rowdy, St. John, etc. Shankly admitted he didn't act fast enough and it put us back years. I can't see Kenny making the same mistake. I just hope the idiots, don't sway FSG's judgement in any way. I really still can't believe how they done for Rafa. If it happened again, I think that would be it for me. I just couldn't bear our club becoming like Chelsea.
