I always told my dad he should've moved to EFC when they offered. Damn his loyalty! nt
...but hope some of the history maybe wasn't quite how it appeared. I think it generally takes more than a 1st team manager to bring about that kind of upheaval at a club, but you and your dad would obviously know more.
As we saw with the Roy Evans-Gerard Houllier joint-managership debacle, their £70 tickets and the move to furlough staff, the RS board sometimes make some of our own club's ham-fisted efforts look professional and compassionate, so I live in hope it wasn't all the work of RB.
Hope things worked out for the old man in time. All the best!
I agree with you about the personal abuse of players.
On this however, it's 100% personal, following my dad's work on the technical staff at Melwood for over a decade and his (and a dozen others) subsequent removal by Rafa on receiving a new contract. Following many, many unnecessary micro-aggressions.
Including getting rid of the HR lady a few days after she'd had to get rid of everyone else.
I'm all for people having their own teams, in fact I think it's vital, but there's ways and means.
Separate to that, I think he's yesterday's man and shouldn't have been allowed near the club as an ex-Liverpool manager, but let's hope for the best. It's started better than I expected.
Well, I hope you have genuine grounds for your hatred. There are too many people spouting bile about people they don't know, and I've never liked the abuse that certain players get.
Obviously, everything is heightened in this era of social media, and it must be awful for players like Tom Davies, or Bernard, who bit back cryptically in his goodbye message, to read the horrendous comments after every appearance.
I don't think anyone plays badly on purpose, and I'd also like to think Senor Benitez hasn't abused a position of authority, which seems to be what you're getting at.
I didn't want him at the club, but now he's here, with a point to prove, he gets my backing if not unreserved enthusiasm. I hope your opinion turns out to be unfounded in time. And I hope the rest of us are in for a pleasant surprise.
Why would you post something like that, even if you have reasons to dislike him, based (apparently) on the opinions of a dozen other people?
….name Carragher 12x and hope it gets back to Rafa?
Go on then
He's a ####.
…he said that he’s a kind man, but very shy, and hates public engagement.
Said he is very good to the staff and helped him a lot too.
Even when he was at the TinMine he didn’t get involved.
A mate who has met him a few times via the school gate said he hates the fan engagement part of the job.
Probably for the best until he delivers 20 straight wins to be honest, but even then I’m not sure he’d change.
If he got abuse it would have been the story so why take the chance and risk overshadowing good news
I think he's content to keep a low profile if it will help the team win. It's where his stubborn single mindedness becomes a plus.
1. Moise Kean was not bothered at all to be there. Broadhead gave much more. I really liked the look of him and Gray, who brings incredible pace.
2. Impressed with Anderson at leftback and Gordon. Didn't seem fazed. Jonjoe seemed chippier too. Gomes and Gbamin a nice partnership.
3. All distribution from the centre backs was poor, especially holgate and gibson.
4. Benitez did not even come over to the fans for a wave - all the players did. Sums him up. And if that is the attitude at GP this autumn, it will be very, very difficult place to be.
5. James is truly a superstar and the Colombians adored him, but he looked well off the pace.
Pre-season means nothing in the grand scheme, but it was a good weekend on the whole.
...Broadhead and Gordon looked lively in the 2nd half.
Not sure I can cope with Gbamin being fouled in any way whatsoever! Heart was in my mouth ha ha ha
A good little run out, and great to see Bobby Chariot still in work as their manager...
How's ya diddlin'?!?
Well bloody sod yer then!
