Season Highlight: Rafa’s Rants

image
“There are so many to chose from: the ref who sent off the whole team in Argentina, the debacles at Newcastle and Tottenham, Lamps tearing a radio host a new one…

But my favourite one has to be the constant stream of propaganda coming out of Anfield: Rafa Benitez tapped into the ABU-sentiments of English football perfectly, and in the process has made more excuses for Liverpool’s inability to win anything this season than Ashley has made to Cheryl for being an ass.“

Ed note: Ahem. Well, that’s going to go down well with the many Liverpool supporters here. Let’s see what Chris from Studs Up has as his best season crazy…

“Rafa’s rant(s) can’t be beat. The media had a lot to do with it because I’m sure they goaded him, took quotes out of context or simply made things up. But as Mulder said, “I want to believe.“

Let’s move on, shall we? Or, you can tell the boys what you really think in the comments. We recommend shin kicks and hair pulling as fast and effective comebacks.

    My thoughts exactly… "Rafa Benitez tapped into the ABU-sentiments of English football perfectly, and in the process has made more excuses for Liverpool’s inability to win anything this season than Ashley has made to Cheryl for being an ass." LOL, classic.

    Yes Fourth, it was one of the best virals around, one of many though LOL

  7. Boston Red says:

    I think Ahmed's right on. The man's a loon. Listen to Rafa speak – the media didn't take anything out of context.

    Well… it was definitely taken by the media and overblown, but as a Pool supporter I can definitely say that eventually I’m beginning to see the humor in it. That said, I do think he had a few good points in all that FACTing.

    *snorts* "Has made more excuses… that Ashley has made to Cheryl for being an ass." Now THAT is a good metaphor.

  11. nicki says:

    HAHAHA Malin. While not a Liverpool supporter I found this post hilarious. Its also good to know now that if a joking post is up about a team that means there is free license to say whatever you want about that team and the fans of that team are sad for responding and defending the team they love in a good nature way. Definitely good to know.

  12. Wazza's Freckle says:

    My apologies for ruffling any Liverbird feathers, girls. I made the rookie mistake of supposing this is a place for opinions and discussion. My bad. Carry on! :) I'll try harder to follow your examples in the future.

  13. boo says:

    finally! someone said/wrote it. weird, no? like a sheep in wolf clothes? maybe he has to say something for himself since the best games liverpool had were when rafa was in hospital

    I think the whole thing should have been shut up. The media overblew it. It was like the Ballack – Jogi argument. If the media hadn't gotten into it, it would have been over in like five minutes.

  16. Merel says:

    Probably never heard Louis van Gaal rant to the media? NOW that is entertainment.

  17. Merel says:

    The king of ranting? That must be Louis van Gaal. Now that is entertainment!

  18. The Fourth Official says:

    Freckles, I'm sorry that you felt the need to censor yourself. You are entitled to express an opinion and you weren't rude about it. Too bad if it's not what other people want to hear. But don't try too hard to emulate the majority around here – we need MORE intelligent posters, not fewer.
