I don't want Rafa out, I hope he stays with you as longs as possible, tinkering, rotating, buying bunch of mediocre players and resting your best players in crucial games.
Yep, I quite agree.
We'd be stupid to get rid of someone, especially when a manager as successful as yours has employed his methods, exactly as you describe, on his way to his last 3 league titles.
If only we could afford your wage bill, and to spunk £17million on promising bench players - then we'd be getting somewhere.
Still, it's impressive that a Manc has noticed the clear similarities between Rafa's methods and the ones Fungus started using about a season or two after Rafa and Mourinho arrived in England - most of your lot wouldn't admit that under torture. Still, I guess that open mindedness is why your such welcome addition to these boards - an Manc who can see the 'big picture' a bit. The kind of Manc who can admit, just as we'd all agree, that Anderson is without doubt better than Lucas, as you argued so persuasively on an another thread with this epic post:
Anderson is much better
Which I have to say is possibly the most definitive contribution I've ever seen in terms of the Lucas debate. Well done to you, you are truly worthy of the legend who you so rightly praise with your username. Sir Ryan of Giggs. Indeed. What I wouldn't give for a manager who could still rely on a player after all these years of declining performances, after having spent as little as £50million plus on failed replacements...just like he's still loyal to the 'just as good as he ever was when he was really shit' Scholes - 48 years old, can barely play a half anymore, yet still better than the £100million + investments on 'talent' Fergus has pitted him against.
