I find those quizzes somewhat annoying because they are just collections of players from that season, for example I don't believe that we would ever have lined up with a defence of

I imagine him being Pepesque so we need to get there before Madrid or Bayern. Its a left field appointment for sure but it will be super interesting to track his progress

Anyone watch football's darkest secrets on BBC1 last night? I caught the last few minutes and they were talking to Paul Stewart, the man is absolutely broken, not having watched the rest of the program I don't know the whole story but during the bit I watched he was talking about how during his time at LFC he was doing coke daily, I really need to download it and watch the rest of it.

Its on my list to watch this week.

Paul Stewart

He was abused by youth coach Frank Roper. "He told me that you had to do this in order to make it in football," Stewart says in the film. He says Roper threatened to kill his parents and brothers if he told anyone. The experience has left him with struggles throughout his life.

listening to a pod yesterday & Pjanic was an accounting trick played out between the clubs ( he swapped with someone for 16mill?) to balance books.

Mad what happens these days in transfers

Arthur - Juve bought him for like 70m and Barca bought Pjanic for 55m - all about player amortisation to cook the books

It's nice to hear Gerrard say things like

Quote:
“Your ego gets in the way and you think he’s not liking you. Looking back, he was an absolute master of tough love.

“In terms of structure, in terms of principles: out of possession, how aggressive we want to be. There’s a lot of Rafa Benitez in Rangers performances.”
The lightbulb finally turned on

What a shame the club wasn't run the way it is now. I've no doubt that Rafa would've won at least one league if it was

Well he had a team that had Gerrard, torres, masher, alonso, carra and hyypia and he didn't manage it. He was too cautious to win a league.

Wow. I really don't agree with that. My concern with his team's was that they were so tactically coached that it could be difficult to set them up optimally twice in the same week. I think he tried to make that less necessary through the players he bought, but he ran out of money before he could complete the task.

He's seem to have grown up and matured quite a lot since he left the Liverpool bubble. To be fair to him it was must have been a pretty intense situation to handle over the years.

i'd say he is still sore about that alright. Benitez really got LFC - in much the same way Jurgen has. His valencia team were awesome and we were really pretty lucky to be able to hire Rafa. Him and Mourinho were the two top up and coming coaches back then.

I really enjoyed watching his teams and the way he improved the team in the first couple of years. Alonso was my favourite player.

Rafa really really improved players too. Obviously Gerrard went on to be a superstar for us and Alonso and Mascherano all went on be top players in their positions. But players like Carragher, Riise, Hyypia, Finnan......he made all of them better players than they were. Torres was awesome under him and never hit those heights again.

When you look at the spending we did around then, we punched about our weight a little bit.

The stories about players we missed out on were a bit of a sickener too. Missed on Dani Alves because we wouldn't pay the 12m or whatever it was back then. So we signed Pennent!!! Simao was obviously another one but there were rumours that we just fell short for the likes of David Silva from Valencia..... i think we got Albert Riera instead. Aguero aledgedly went to Atletico Madrid instead of us because we wouldn't spend 17m on a teenager from Independiente.

If we had a little bit more money back then, we would have won the league and more trophies.

You've named 6 players If only it was a 5-a-side league. Agree to disagree on the bit in bold I think
