Am I the only one who thinks it's too friendly to call him "Rafa"? I think we should stick to "Benitez", "Rafael", "FSW" or "Rupert".

I dont know how English culture is, but Spanish/Brazilian are strongly based on nicknames. Once it sticks to the person, it doesnt matter where it came from or if it is supposed to be careful or cute or whatever. It is just a simpler way to call the person!

I can tell this from personal experience, there are people who hate me and call me Rapha (my name is Raphael). It doesn't mean it is friendly, but just and easier and more common way to call me...

Calling Benitez "Rafa" has become very usual, so it means absolutey nothing!

I don't know about English culture as well, but here using nicknames is usually to people you (at least) don't hate.

Depends where the nickname comes from, I know many people who dont like their nicknames because it is usually a banter or even a bullying.

Overall, it is usually only used because we are way too lazy and names like Rafael, Fernando, etc, are too big for us to say it, LOL.

Why thank you kind sir! :D

I can hardly say I was inspired; I immediately thought of that video as soon as I had finished reading 'that'.

People just can't be bothered to be so angry at someone for so long I don't think, especially when the sun's shining. I want him gone as soon as the season ends but I think he deserves a bit of credit for the way he's handled the last week. Four games in such a short period of time is tough for any team, but with our small squad it was always going to be a struggle. Three wins out of four and another trip to Wembley ain't too bad.

its not bad at all but with the talent we have here id expect most managers to have done the same. Hes basically just doing fifa manager here, its not like hes shifting formations all over the place or anything. Hes swapping players round to keep them fit for the long haul. Im no tactical or managerial expert but id think thats basic

Rafa predicts Reds return

Rafa Benitez has told Marca he will "almost certainly" manage his former club Liverpool again at some stage.

FUCK OFF!!!

Not surprised by that as I believe he said it before anyway. Don't think we bother what he does in his future just as long as he doesn't go mess up our season now!

Just 11 days until TFSW's return to Anfield. Shocking day thats gonna be. Thousands of the great unwashed heaping wholesome praise on his shoulders. Him lapping it up. I aint going to watch it, I aint going to take anything to do with that day.

His record is poor indeed. Losses to Southampton, West Ham, QPR & Newcastle is shocking. Piss poor draws against Fulham, Southampton (again), Reading, Brentford and the mind numbing semi final draw at Swansea, not to mention the 1st Leg.

Still not over it, And I still maintain we will miss out on the top 4 that Roman cherishes so much. Shit against Slumberland at the weekend, Still to play Fulham, Snivelpool, Man Ure and Villa away. The Yids, Swansea and Everton at home. I reckon we will take another seven points. The atmosphere is grim these days, every cunt just wants the season to end. In my opinion, worst season since Porterfield.

We will win in Old Trafford, no doubt about it.
