That's what it essentially boils down to IMHO. Those motto's I mentioned are ringing loud in my head right now if I'm honest. And I say that with a heavy heart. I can't put in words how much I wanted the clubs greatest living icon to return and to be a triumphant. Every one of us wanted it, but sadly I don't think its going to have the ending we all wanted. I'd love to be proved wrong mind, but that's just how I honestly feel. I also think we'd be foolish to let a league cup success mask the fact that we're slipping further behind in our league form. But as I said, nothing will ever diminish my love and adoration for that man, he will always be the living breathing embodiment of all that is good about Liverpool FC. I'm just offering my honest feelings is all, in the most respectful way I can. Because I've nothing but total respect for Kenny, and I always will
Disagree on some fundamentals. The first one being the yardstick applied to Rafa was wrong. Two wrongs will not make a right. Sacking a manager like rafa was wrong for so many reasons and we will only be repeating the same mistake in lieu of what -- hope that some other manager will correct things which Kenny cannot? The mentality which got rid of Rafa will do the same to Kenny unless we can look within ourselves and say we have to give this time. If Chelsea cannot be turned around in a year starting from a more advantageous position then I cannot see how Liverpool can be done so with so many variables this year, new team, new style of play, squad rebuilding and developing the youth system.
It is so very easy to criticize but before we do that we need to analyse and balance the argument. Playing Carra is a decision which I think is wrong. Carroll is not being utilized properly by Kenny is a managerial mistake, Bellamy not playing is man management problem. These are genuine problems but then every team has it own share of problems and we need to find answers to them but changing managers will not change the overall picture. You will only end up with a different set of problems to resolve.
We have a trophy, you may call it a mickey mouse cup or whatever but at the end of the day it counts. It counts in proving that the team has ambition and attracting the players from other teams in which they feel they cannot get the trophy/CL football with a top team. There are a lot of good players out there and winning trophies count in the transfer market.
Results have been bad for us and for other teams as well. Arsenal and Chelsea are also having a bad season, barring the superman heroics of RVP, where would Arsenal be now? So while out points tally is bad, this season has not been good except for the top 3. Sacking Kenny is not the answer. If anything, it is a sure recipe for disaster. A new manager, a new style of play and a overhaul of players and staff is almost invariable in that scenario. We cannot afford that, right now Kenny has shown enough for us to retain the faith. One fucking season does not make a bad manager.
