I like football, if I haven't already mentioned it.

Being a fan of Liverpool FC is not a fun pastime recently.

Why, you ask? Well, rotation aside (a theme covered so much in the media that there is no point me covering it) because Rafa has begun to choose his transfers with all the wisdom and patience of an NHS manager.


Last year, Rafa wanted to buy a striker called Darren Bent. He wasn't able to, so he went out and panic bought Peter Crouch. Who is a poor replacement.

Similarly, he wanted to buy Daniel Alves. Unable to do so, he bough Jermaine Pennant, a Championship (i.e. a league below the Premiership) player. Who is rubbish.

He, quite foolishly, tried to buy a Manchester United player at the start of this season. For the uninformed, there is a great deal of animosity between Man U and Liverpool fans and the clubs themselves. Be was, suffice to say, unable to and our defence has suffered ever since.

The moral of the story? Don't put all your eggs in one basket. Or you end up with egg all over your face.
