Rafa was very good manager for us at times. LITN highlighted his strengths very well. I will only say that domestically, Liverpool played down to its opponent a lot. Not necessarily a problem limited to Rafa as Liverpool manager. He tinkered line-ups quite a bit. I really just take issue with his transfer window record. He hit some out of the park and took some huge whiffs. Unfortunately, H&G went down during tail end of his tenure. Part of me will never get past forcing Alonso out (who, to his credit, he also brought in) and bringing in an injured Aquilani as replacement. We had arguably, the best midfield in the world and it was needlessly dismantled, in my opinion.
EDIT: You don't dismantle a side that finished 2nd in the league and with the 2nd most points in the league in 16 years. You don't do that. You add. Don't subtract.
