We all live in a Rafa Wonderland

Rafael Benitez refused to promise Fernando Torres a regular starting place despite seeing the Spaniard score his first Liverpool hat trick in their League Cup third round win at Reading.
Benitez sparked an angry reaction from Liverpool fans by resting Torres for Liverpool's recent goalless Premier League draws with Portsmouth and Birmingham.
But the 26 million pound striker responded by inspiring Liverpool to a 4-2 win at the Madejski Stadium on Tuesday.
"With Fernando's pace you know he will kill defenders and he had a terrific game," said Benitez.
"If he is not injured and if he keeps training well, maybe he will start the game against Wigan on Saturday. (Eat your heart out Nando)

Name me one other manager, who has won the Premiership in England by leaving one of Europe's best forwards on the bench...

I don't like Rafa and I'm sure glad he doesn't work at Arsenal. Jose to Liverpool in 12 months??? Rafa has got to win the Premier League this season, no ifs, no buts. He's had the money to spend, it's his team, he must make it work.

Not that I care like but if I was a Liverpool fan I'd be spitting blood over some of his decisions.
