This just in from the goateed mouth of El Rafa, talking ahead of Liverpool’s game against Man City a week on Sunday:
“Everything will be different if we win two or three in a row. The confidence will be high and everything will be easier.
“Maybe we can start the season right now. Winning against [Manchester] City will be a big boost for everyone and if that happens I’m sure we’ll see the best of the team.
“I am 100% sure everything will be totally different if we can win the game against City after this international break. The season can be good if we do well.”
Hmm, interesting – maybe I can erase the last decade and go back and become a fighter pilot?
Here’s one for you Rafa: how about you start the season when every other club does – you know, at the start of the season. Just a thought.
Really, Rafa needs to wake up and smell the coffee (or is it roses?) – in terms of the Premier League, I’d say Liverpool’s season is already over, so it’s ironic that their gaffer would be talking about new beginnings and new hope; I hoped that George Lucas wouldn’t fuck up the Star Wars prequels, but look what happened.
Time to fall back on a phrase Spurs fans know only too well: There’s always next season…
