    Rafa

    On radio 5 last night. Even those that didn't like his style of football, how can anyone not love this man. He got the club, in my life only 2 other managers have. King Kev and the Great Sir Bobby.

    Class! Plus, remember even when he first came here there was a prefect opportunity to bring him in during an international break and they dithered and gave McClown another game or two to inflict yet more damage. With those extra games, he might have even pulled off a near miracle that season.

    in fairness to Rafa, we didnt really see the style of play he would have preferred. He is a master tactician.

    He set the team up in a way to get points, he could only use the players he had, the quality was not there so it was very defensive.
    Given time and money, we would have won silverware with Rafa and the better players we brought in the better the football would have been.

    Brucey on the other hand, has no tactics, he has no clue, he could have Messi and Ronaldo in the squad and they would both be playing wingback and with strict instructions not to go beyond the half way line

    god i hate that cabbage faced twit

    I despair at how far backwards we have gone since Rafa left , can only keep faith with all involved with the Court Case and pray that the takeover goes through soon

    Aye, man...that's the only hope we've got left at the minute.
