Good piece about the reasoning behind the title collapse!
Boardroom unrestContinuing backroom squabbling must of course play an effect on the successful running of a club both on and off the field. Messrs Hicks, Gillett and Parry all had a part to play in the unholy mess that on the outside portrayed a club lacking direction. Thankfully this should be eased when Rick Parry steps down in the summer but some damage to the club and its domestic season are clear for all to see.
Robbie KeaneThe transfer debacle that brought this normally prolific from Spurs and back to White Hart Lane a little over six months later was an albatross around the clubs neck for more than one reason. Depending on who you talk to Robbie was either not good enough, didn’t play well alongside Torres or wasn’t given enough time to show his ability, but I think all in all most would agree that as a signing it did more harm than good for the club’s title aspirations. I guess more importantly it was apparently a signing Rafa didn’t want and even more crucially his departure left the club even more short of options up front and that lack of support and strength to support Fernando Torres cannot be Keane’s fault and rather a lack of proven strikers at the club.

So Liverpool fans what do make of these reasons, are they fair or should Rafa take more of the blame?
