    Liverpool Thread 2011/12

    Every manager will have their flaws whether that be tactically, man management or signing players - looking for a perfect manager is pointless. Rafa took over the team that Houllier left him and transformed it into a title challenging side whilst winning trophies along the way. Yes, he spent a chunk of money doing it (we aren't talking man city levels of spending though) but he also recouped a lot as well. Tactically he was spot on and had us punching above our weight (especially against the big teams) and we were always in the latter stages of the CL. If they want to give someone 5 years to turn things round then, what is he 51 or 52 now, so plenty of time ahead of him. Just seems an easy decision to make to me. The fact he loves the club, is probably sitting in his house in Liverpool currently doing nothing makes the decision even easier. As someone said, imagine if FSG had been in charge when he took them to second - even if they had backed him modestly but allowed him to retain the team he'd built we'd be a completely different situation now. Get him back as manager, back him with the money and time that were missing last time and we will reap the rewards.

    Watched the Kings of the Kop programme last night and that has depressed me even further. The summer signings have been a major, major disappointment and if Kenny does go then surely Comolli's position also has to be looked at (i assume he must be fairly involved in the signings)? i actually feel a bit sorry for Kenny. I like seeing him on the touchline as it reminds me of being young, he loves the club and he should never have been allowed to leave all those years ago. But its clearly not working at the moment. I think someone else said it but it would be brilliant if he were to win the FA Cup this season and then left. A fitting end perhaps.

    Joint managers never work but can we not get together some sort of Kenny/Rafa dream team?
