Well, Pool fans must now be fuming after Pools’s loss at Sunderland; that makes it 4 losses in the season now. Only Consolation is that Chelsea lost as well. With Man Utd continuing to pick up points even when not playing anywhere near their best, the title seems to be heading back to OT at the moment.
Those idiots who stood by Rafa when he had the run-in with the American jokers who owns the club must certainly be starting to tear their hair out now. In short the club is in a mess.
Look at the starting line up today and you have to wonder whether the team have progressed under Rafa. Other than Carra, Agger, Skrtel and Reina, the rest of the team are made up of very average players at best. The squad looks thin and it is a surprise after Rafa spent over 200 million quid in his time and has failed to build a strong squad.
I am absolutely sick of this fella and his transfers have only brought the club backwards. Lucas, Pennant, Pongolle, Leto, Paletta, Insua, Ngog, Babel, Plessis, Voronin, Riera, Degan, Dosena, Kyrgiakos are all not Pool type of players. He sold Crouch who had a good record at Pool, he sold Keane after playing him out of position, he lost the trust and Alonso and eventually he left.
He reverted to 3 central defenders, something he has not done in his time and that is baffling. From the bench he had to bring on Ngog and Voronin to try win the the game and that is definitely a disgrace for a club of Pool’s profile.
No wonder Mourinho is laughing all the way from Milan.
Without Stevie G and Torres back in the team, you can only see Pool struggling again in Lyon and against Man Utd next weekend.
If Pool lose again at Anfield next weekend, I am sure the pressure will be for him to leave.
