A contentious scando
Yeah you're probably right. They looked terrific in the second halfOnly when handicapped by shit owners. When Rafa became Everton manager - I was happy for him, because under him I know that two things will happen:
1) it will never be a dead certainty for the likes of United, City, Chelsea to win against Everton, because Rafa is managing them and he has enough talent and know how to beat those opposing managers and the talent they have.
2) it maybe a more civilized affair at the next Merseyside derby - as Rafa is unlikely to tell his players "go injure all their best players and be cunts" - no he will try and calm then down and make the cunts think. So there is less chance of any of our players getting injured ( I hope).
Now the harsh truth is - that he has enough talent under him to actually be the man that could take them to a top 4 finish. You may laugh but I never thought he was yesterday's man. His understanding of football and tactics is still very much in fashion.
