the reason rafa needed a high turnover of players is that he couldn't keep players happy, especially creative attacking minded players. he stifled them, he had bellamy at the club when craig was at his peak,bellamy was useless and wasted here cause rafa's mindset was to always be in defensive covering positions. thats just the way he was,nothing to do with not getting his first choices or whatever , only 1 or 2 managers in the world get their first choice. Rafa would rather start a game with a fullback on the wing rather than a bellamy type player ,thats just who he was and its demoralising for a club in the long term..kenny is moving the team and club forward together, and i think it matters a whole hell of a lot if the players believe and want to win for each other and the manager
If you are going to criticise RB for playing players out of position then why no mention of KD doing it all the time and actually losing games? I'm confident that when Rafa did it we won more often than not.
The only thing that matters is league positions: Rafa had us in the top 3 most of the time which progressed to runners up, before H&G got heavy handed hence our drop to 7th. We were destined for premier league glory under RB but it was snatched away from him. Bring him back ASAP!!!
