Two European Cup finals in three years with players like Traore, Baros, Kewell, Crouch, Pennant and Zenden is pure fantasy alright. 

Didn't he buy most of those players?

And he didnt play couch in 2007 if memory serves.

No, he didn't buy most of those. 

 

Also, not like it was a choice between Zenden on a free or signing David Villa for him was it?

Is that a sneaky Red grinning on the right of that picture?

And who’s that to the left? Robbo really does get fucking everywhere doesn’t he?

Whoever is suggesting Baros was anything less than elite level world class, wash your mouth out you ungrateful cunts. I fucking love Meeelaaan!

He's a professional jobbing manager now, who'll say whatever is necessary to survive. Can't really hold that against him.

 

I just wish he'd knock it all on the head and walk away with some dignity. Would be preferable if one of our immortalised European Cup winning managers didn't sully himself with ever more desperate jobs. He's minted, and he'd have to be a masochist to be enjoying his last couple of appointments. 

 

Just get them relegated and retire.

And wait for the statue!

Some people have built a myth around rafa that is pure fantasy.

It wasn't a myth, mate. It was a miracle and it really happened.

They surrounded the ref all night. And judging by the series of soft free-kicks they got it seems to have worked. We had twice as much of the ball but seem to have committed twice as many fouls.

How the fuck did this turn into a Rafa thread  Anyway He should have been sacked after not starting Crouch in the Champions League Final.  Typical of us at the time we replaced him with a useless fuck.

In the first 10 minutes last night there must have been 20 kids (under 10) seen on the screen giving the wanker or V sign to a player just taking a throw in or corner. I know my kids know what the middle finger means but I'd be shocked if they know the wanker signal. These lads had it down to a tee, such hatred for children so young. Tribalism aside it's shocking parenting and disgrace for the people's club. If the hate is that real just give up on the game.

Gordon was the real light skinned fella who took a dive on his first touch? That was the worst of the lot.

The beauty of that was they won the corner we scored the third from off that free kick. Karma in action.

Imagine for a second, they do go down and then in a few years when Rafa is being interviewed after retiring, when it’s time for Everton to get mentioned he gives a wry little smirk.

Can't be doing with all this disrespect for Rafa, who gave me and many people the greatest sporting moment of our lives. 

 

The club wasn't like it was now, it wasn't (relatively) well run and financed, it was a shitshow behind the scenes, and he never bought form the top table, he spotted players who went on to be some of our best ever servants.

 

And why should he retire or not take any job he chooses? He owes us nothing. He's no Mourinho, someone who just goes from Job to job looking for his next payout, he just fucking loves football, you only have to hear him talk.

For some reason, that read like a letter in viz as I was going through it. Only realised it wasn’t at the end

I don’t think most or even many wish him ill. I certainly don’t.

 

Some great times were had, some great signings, sometimes good, sometime poor signings too. He was a great ambassador and advocate for the city, with the families and for Hillsborough campaign (in what he could do)

 

At the time he was moved on I think most would agree, transfer shenanigans aside, that he was moved on too early.

 

That was a decade ago. The idea we would want him back or should want him back is fanciful.

 

He’s a cold blooded professional, he owes us nothing and is entitled to earn a living. 
 

I want him to fail at Everton and anywhere he goes, cos I can’t stand Everton and I don’t support or like any other club, there’s a few I feel less malevolent, about some even neutralish, but like he owes us nothing and visa versa.

 

It’s the fawning I can’t be arsed with. 
 

Thanks Rafa, we can reminisce about the old days and have a good old time. We all love that, but the club moves forward and he’s not the future of it.

Rafa to me is like a Houllier or a Wenger, he just loves the game. I bet if you went to his house he wouldn't shut the fuck up about it. I love that. 

 

I love Klopp but Houllier and Rafa will always be special to me because in my eyes they were the guys who, between them, started to turn it around, instilling discipline and buying quality players. Both men too, Houllier especially, came into a game that was incredibly hostile to foreign managers too. 

 

As people, they just both seem like top blokes who adopted the city and loved it. Real football men who have always had and will always have my love and respect.
