Albert Riera says that Rafa has lost the plot and acts very bossy with the players. He drops them and does not speak with them leaving them dissatisfied. The first signs of player disinterest is showing up at Liverpool. What are your views on Riera's comments? Cheers! Ram

According to me,its unfortunate that he said such things in public, even though it happens to be true. Rafa seems to be still confident & also for the 4th place. But i think Liverpool just didnt have enough key players to make up when other key players are injured. It also seems like he's never given a good budget to buy good players to consolidate the team.... i wish him goodluck

Yes, Rafa has also lamented that it has come at a bad time. But I guess that sometimes it is good for a coach to talk to his boys especially when he decides to drop them from the team. Cheers! Ram

Riera is absolutely right. Rafa has been given enough money. He has spent around 300 million pounds. I just feel that Rafa is not for Liverpool. He is good in winning certain games but can't bring the title back where it belongs - Anfield.

Yes, he was a good tactician for CL type of games, but when it comes to sustained performance in the league, he is not good enough. The first 3 years his rotation policy really killed off his chances, after that he simply could not get the team to perform on a regular basis. Cheers! Ram
