F*ck off Broughton you utter, utter c*nt! Trivialising Rafa's tenure to that night in Istanbul, there was Istanbul but there was so much more on top of that. I honestly don't know what to do, I'm in pieces here and I'm beginning to despise the club I loved so much.

"If ever a club reflected what made football the biggest sport in the country, it was Liverpool with its ground set in the bosom of the labouring working class being led by a man-of-the-people idealist in Bill Shankly."

Fucking disgrace.
..............
Until this club is cleansed of the cancer eating away at the top, we are dying a slow, and painful death. This was just the first loss, there will be many more.


The first loss was when David fucking Moores refused every reasonable offer for partnership, investment or sale and instead sold the team to a pair of incompetent bankrupts for blood money.  And mark my words, the only way out of this will be when the club is so decimated that these two bastards finally throw in the towel on getting their hedge funds' money back.  Because it's not their money -- they're still trying to make something from nothing, and as long as they go on trying to do so there's no limit to how far we can fall.

definitely dont want dalglish as manager and i dont think he will be. whats worrying me is, they have to get somebody in quickly so they can do SOMETHING with the squad before the start of the season. and i dont see that happening.

A little part of what I feel for LFC has just died. In fact, it feels like an old friend has just died.

Dickheads can have a go all they want. I don't care what they say. In fact, I blame them for this.

Rafa Benitez has been the best manager we have had in 20 years. He took us back to the brink of greatness. Yet some fools think this is a good thing. I wonder if they will now stop and ask themselves, just why LFC - a club famous for not sacking it's managers - has just forced their most succesful manager in two decades out of the door, when the majority of the fans are still behind him?

Well you have finally got what you wished for. As for me, that's that. I will stay in SOS. I will still do the little I can to help the club rid itself of these parasites. But I will not spend one penny more on LFC until they have gone... no more matches, no more shirts for the kids, no more nothing.

That's me done. I didn't sign up for this near 50 years ago, and those who wanted him out, you're welcome to it... a classless shell of a once mighty club, with phone in loving "supporters" to match.

An absolute crying shame.

I can't believe all the hand-wringing here.  A manager needs to get the best out of his players, and Rafa did not do that this past season.

We finished 7th.  7th!  LFC is not a club that can tolerate such mediocrity.  It was painfully clear to me watching the team this year that we were stale, predictable, and uninspired.  All three of those things fall on the managers head.

Get someone in here with some fresh ideas.  Let ignite our captain again, lets get Torres fit again, and watch us rise like a phoenix.

All the best Rafa, many great memories, and you are a great manager, but your time had come.

Moores, Parry, Gillett, Hicks, Purslow and that smug rent boy twat Broughton should hang their heads in shame. The six leeches who will forever be remembered as playing a role in the death and destruction of Liverpool FC.

I hope you all rot in hell.

Broughton - you are a c*nt. The perfect fit I imagine for the 2 parasites from America.

I am not attending Anfield again until those c*nts are gone. The club is staring at the very real possibility of going the way of Leeds or Newcastle - the next few months will be pivotal if we are going to avoid such a fate, and keep our best players/get owners who want to see the club succeed.
6 may come first, but we all want 19
good luck to Rafa, where the fuck's Keane?....

Thankyou for that. :)

Allegiances aside, there aren't enough managers out there who are prepared to be a beacon for their club and who have such affinity with the fans - and the parallels between your club and mine in terms of ownership makes me so angry / upset / frustrated that we as fans can protest as much as we want and voice our opinions but we are simply being ignored.

good times Rafa, no doubt you will go on to better things while the circus at
Anfield gathers pace.
