Rafa Benitez has my vote with brave team selection v Manchester City

6 years ago

Well if we stay up, Rafa Benitez has my vote.

He certainly isn’t a shy bairn!

Leaving out two very expensive players in Shelvey and Wijnaldum and playing Perez on the left with Andros in the hole.

Good man, for too long this season we have seen people on the pitch due only to their price tag or reputation.

How many times should Moussa Sissoko have been dropped along with our Dutch master?

I digress.

Tonight should be cracking.

The cathedral rocking and hopefully our players fired up.

Howay the lads, score for fun and defend like your wage depended on it!
