Adios, Rafa…

And so ends the reign of the Spanish Gerrard Houllier…

Liverpool FC has confirmed that Rafa Benitez has left the club by mutual consent.  Rafa has issued the usual clap-trap statement about some of the best years of his life (Champions League trophy, UEFA Super Cup in his first year; FA Cup in his second), while the club wishes him all the best.

The club says there is no timetable to find a new owner, and there is no timetable to find a new manager. Do they plan on starting the season on time as well, or will they pick and choose the fixtures they’ll play? Liverpool fans shouldn’t expect too many trophies at Anfield for the next few years.
