All Fooked Up!
Abso-fooking-lutley unbeliveable. We had just beaten Arsenal to a place in the last four of the European Cup in a breathless, fooking-heart-stopping, balls-in-yer-larynx game. We have tightened our grip on fourth place with a comfy win over Blackburn. The latter game also saw Stevie G & El Nino take their personal tallies to 20 & 30 respectively; first time in what seems like an eternity where we had two players striking decent goal tallies.
And what is the major news to come out of Anfield?
1) DIC has said the purchase of our club cannot happen in the current climate.
2) Hicks asks that CEO Parry resign in a very public/leaked letter.
3) Benitez is angered by to find out that Parry was present at meeting with Klinsy.
4) Hicks is apparently consulting with Klinsy on Benitez'z summer targets.
5) Both Hicks & Gillette now want sole control of our club.
What the fook? Fooking mind-boggling or what? Now, many of you will know me have reservations about Rafa's managerial skills but me will say this - no one should be made to work under these circumstances.
Hence, me feels that Rafa will definitely be gone in the summer either to Barca or Real (who knows, even his old stomping ground Valencia would be better than this shite). Me however remains unconvinced of his tactical nous & our fourth placing is testament to that. The mitigating factor fer him is that he has had to work under such fooking chaotic circumstances that he will be forgiven fer all the shortcomings of his team this season.
As fer the sacking of Rick Fooking Parry. He should have gone a loooong time ago. In this case, Hicks does actually have a point. Our revenues are far behind all the other big clubs. Amazingly, our club shop was closed the day after Istanbul!!! As some of you would have experienced (Les & Ezilan), yer online orders fer merchandise after the 2005 victory was nothing short of a farce. So LFC are still crap as a business enterprise. Parry's slo-motion movement in the transfer markets have seen us lose out on a number of occasions, most recently Malouda to CSKA London (much to Rafa's annoyance). Parry still runs LFC like a fooking cornershop & has absolutely no vision fer the future.
Ronnie Whelan mentioned recently on ESPN (& is backed by other former players) that LFC's current hierarchy are still unsure how to approach the Asian market!!?! Fooking hell!?! Almost two decades of Premiership branding & still in the dark. WTF!?! As Whelan commented, "LFC should be the biggest club in the world." So why isn't it, Rick?
So as fer as me is concerned, Parry should fook off. Fer the Klinsy affair, fer his shit transfer market skills, fer his outdated & outmoded way of marketing LFC, fer being an "arrogant" twat with no rapport with the fans & most importantly, fer getting us into this fooking mess in the first place . . .
ps: Please click on MyRawk link or the UK newspaper links on side fer more ugly details.
pps: Arsenal fans may be a disappointed lot today but they aren't having to face this kind of shite & at least they challenged fer the title whilst playing some fooking incredible footie.
ppps: As always, look forward to reading yer response on this ever-worsening crisis engulfing Anfield.
