I know, but I've been a hopeless Rafa-ite ever since you-know-what. The word 'potentially' is key in that sentence of mine there (which I'm well aware is in itself a pretty silly thing to suggest). It's just a personal view when all's said and done; if Benitez does indeed lie 5th in our league table of all-time bosses(? As daft as such a notion might be), in my eyes he's still a long, long way off breaking into those 'Champions League spots', so to speak. He was in charge that one unreal night though, and didn't do much wrong in the rest of his time here as far as I'm concerned, so I love him enough to consider it a 'Big 5'. It's a nice round number after all.
I can't help but imagine the vast majority of younger supporters of other clubs (and even many of ours) may not even recognise the name Joe Fagan, like you'd think they'd all know at least a little about Shankly and Paisley if they had any interest in world footy history at all, which is really unfortunate. He does seem very unsung at large, compared to some 'icons' who achieved considerably less in all their time wherever they managed.
