Twitter is getting itself into a lather over rumours that Rafa Benitez has quit Liverpool. The same rumours are allegedly filling up the Liverpool online forums, but a Manc like me isn't allowed in such places.|
The rumours are fuelled by talk of Paddy Power suspending bets on Rafa's demise and SkyBet reporting a steady stream of bets today on Rafa walking. This would follow Sunday's dismal performance and Rafa's rather undignified post-match comments. It would also follow talk of a paltry £1.5m transfer kitty between now and the end of the transfer window.
Of course, it would also follow regular rumours of this nature about Rafa which turned out to be complete twaddle.
