"Finishing second would still be an achievement" Rafa Benitez, manager of Liverpool

Gerrard Houllier used to say finishing in the top 4 was an achievement, so I was just waiting for Rafa to say something like that now.

Liverpool will not win the league but to say that it is an achievement to finish 2nd is disgraceful. Maybe Rafa should at the reasons why Liverpool are not even challenging for the league title any longer, starting with his own management style and baffling decisions.

I couldn't believe it when I say Skirtel playing at right back against Boro. Can someone explain why? What is it with Rafa playing Lucas - the guy is just dreadful. And selling Keane is clearly coming back to haunt Rafa because if Torres isn't playing, Liverpool have no one up front. No strikers means no goals, and yet Rafa keeps going on about how Liverpool have missed chances to score this season.

Rafa may have a great record in Europe but unless Liverpool are content with only doing well in Europe, then they will have to replace Rafa because otherwise, Liverpool will never win the league.

First, learn to spell the names of our players. Second, pay more attention, Rafa has already explained the above.

yeah, and keane was so fantastic at not missing blatant goalscoring chances. :rolleyes:

We also beat Chelsea at home.

Rafa makes too many odd decisions for me. He is really good in europe but in the league he has consistently made blunders
