Which makes Benitez the perfect choice. Continuity and all thatAgreed.
I mean, a Bob Paisley or a Klopp or a late 80s era Dalglish would at least bring the prospect of progressive or high energy football on the pitch.
My recollection of Rafael is dour, functional football of the type Ancellotti, Sam and even Moyes served up.
I have had enough of that crap.
So my objection is not so much that he is an RS legend or that he once called us a “small club”.
It is the fact his approach to the game is not what I want to see on the Goodison turf.
Again, having an opinion on a manager is different to telling someone they are right or wrong for expressing that view. I know you don't do nuance, but there is a difference.Says you.. he was spot on in the end the bloke was a past it dinosaur.
Yet the same fans slamming him for saying that are burning their season tickets over Benitez being a past it dinosaur.
I just find hypocritical - you either back every manager from the start or you dont but if you dont you cant go around slating other Blues when they do it to a manager you personally like.
Because I'm a Blue and couldn't care less about RS fans. But their club isn't imposing Moyes so it's academic anyway. I think you are confusing your allegiances.Can't understand how you can openly say that "the people's club" is derogatory to Liverpool fans and then assume upset because Benitez labelled us a "small team"
I certainly wouldn't try to change anyone's mind, I just think, as a non match going fan (due to age and distance) that I will support the club and the new manager. I understand that for a lot of match going supporters that this would be unacceptable, but it's my opinion.I have no issues with appointing Ancelotti. He was clearly the best person available when we had a vacancy. It ended very badly but I'm not going to blame the board for taking a chance on one of the most successful managers of all time.
People can support this appointment if they think it's good but people do not have to support it if they think it is going to go very badly wrong. No one is a better supporter for telling everyone they must get behind Benitez. I will support the team but I will never support this appointment because it has brought a lot of division to the club. He will get a chance to show whether he can do a good job regardless of what people say, but people are very much entitled to think that there are others who could do a much better job under a much more pleasant and enjoyable atmosphere.
Basically, I'm just fed up with others telling me how I should feel about this appointment. I think it's going to be a disaster and I don't like it - call me a crap fan if that's what you think, but I'm not going to change my mind.
