Hating our own players

Recommended Posts

Not happening that much this season but it continues to surprise me how much our own players are hated by fans, especially those that are injured a lot (I don't think they are happy about the situation either). How do you feel when a hated player scores? Have you changed your mind on someone you hate? I can only remember ever hating one of our players; Nicky Tanner. I was pretty young and I remember hoping he'd get sent off he was such a liability.

Hate is a strong word but Diouf and Joe Cole to name too pissed me off no end.

 

if they scored I was pleased for the team but it didn’t make me feel any nicer feels towards them.

I hate them all

It would have been a mild dislike if they had beaten the Mancs away, Napoli, Athletico, Villa and Watford. But they're dead to me now

The players who I grow to dislike are the ones who stay at the club for a long time despite being mediocre. Chief example of that was Mignolet.

 

Henderson was going down that path a while ago but his level has gone up to the point where there's no way I could dislike him.

Couldn't hate Mingolet, as shit as he was he was still getting games so I can't blame him for not leaving, I blamed the management/bosses for not upgrading sooner, and once we did he left shortly after. 

 

I have more of an issue with the malingerers who refuse to leave just so they can steal a wage, it's obvious they will never be good enough but they keep living off the contract they managed to blag when we were desperate and stupid.

I've never hated any Liverpool player just for being shit. If they genuinely give their best every time they play, and aren't up to it, then fair fucks. Emile Heskey was a prime example of that, for me. He wasn't very good. But he gave a proper effort every match and played wherever he was asked to. He had one great season for us and although he was a symbol of the club losing its way under Houllier in the later years I can't really hold it against him.

 

The ones I can't fucking stand are the ones who:

- Act like a cunt on the pitch (Diouf, Suarez now he's gone)

- Make the same basic errors all the fucking time despite them being obvious and fixable (Mignolet, Moreno)

- Gob off to the press about how fucking amazing you are and how you've turned a corner, then play like a wanker in the next match (Lovren, Ruddock)

- Come in with a big reputation, clearly have some talent, and then do absolutely fuck all with it (Balotelli, Joe Cole)

- Are unable to maintain a basic level of fitness (Cole again, Ruddock again)

- Make up a shit nickname for themselves and act like they're the bigger than the club (Ince, Ruddock yet again)

 

Think that about covers it. I know we have YNWA as an important part of the club's culture but I don't think it should apply to players who clearly take the piss out of every fan who watches them play.

Hated David James. Thought he was one of the top keepers in the league yet continually fucked up basic things like catching. Would cost us in big games yet laugh his mistakes off then repeat them over and over. 

 

Hated his attitude and made shit excuses for his form. Not sure whether the Armani modelling story is true but it wouldn't surprise me. 

 

Also hated Neil Ruddock, just a fat cockney bell end. Should have been in a football factory film.

Grobelaar. James. Mignolet. Paul Stewart. Mark Walters. Dean Saunders. Stewart Downing and these are just off the top of my head.

I don't hate any of our players.Fuck I don't even hate any opposition players.

 

I would turn away Martin Atkinson from any of the Jennings' dinner parties, but I don't even hate him.

 

The only one i really hate is  @Qwikage

I don't think I've hated any players while they were here, but there have been players that I thought weren't good enough (Diouf, Leonhardsen), players I always thought weren't suited to us (Pennant, Downing, Carroll, Balotelli), and players who turned out not to improve the team in the way I thought they would (Ince).

 

If I had to pick one, it would be Ince. I believed all that "final piece of the jigsaw" nonsense about how he would bring the midfield steel the team was thought to lack. He fancied himself as a box-to-box midfielder with licence to attack, and while it did bring us a few goals, we were always ridiculously over-exposed in midfield and teams could get at our less-than-watertight defensive unit of James, Babb, Ruddock and Kvarme with ease because Ince was never anywhere near our box to help cut off the threat at source. It was a number of years later when it made sense why Ferguson got rid of the self-styled Guv'nor in the first place.

"The Guvnor". Fucking hell. Imagine being in a dressing room with some lazy, past his best bellend sat there calling himself the fucking Guvnor.

 

Can you believe he had the cheek to say he'd get into our current midfield the other day? He's a fucking joke.

Did you hate Grobelaar when he was playing or after he retired?. He always come across as a total knobhead now whenever he's interviewed. Never mind all the match fixing stuff.

    • My favourite one, some of the games, might be highlights were on in the afternoon then I'd just go straight down to the field at the bottom of the road and play footy for ages.
    • I wonder what all the horrible little gobshites attacking our players will say now that Chelsea have followed.      
    • Tuesday May 26:   Ok so you know I said yesterday that I’m over all the Istanbul stuff and it does nothing for me these days? Turns out I was wrong. LFCTV had Carra and Xabi doing a watch along of the game together so I thought “I’ll give it a little watch for 5 minutes”. 45 minutes later I’m sat there thinking “that was fucking boss”.    The thing that I didn’t really appreciate at the time but it stands out massively now is just how much better than Milan side was than ours. I mean I knew they were better, but not to the extent that I see it now. Not only did I go into that game thinking we could win it, but at half time at 3-0 down I was STILL telling people it wasn’t over and if we got an early goal etc   Now fair enough, I was shitfaced and I’m sure without the benefit of alcohol I wouldn’t have been so full of bravado, but it’s only really now when I look back that I realise we shouldn’t have had any chance. They were better than us in virtually every position and some of the all time greats of the modern era in their side. I didn’t see it that way back then because I was in the moment and had a vastly inflated opinion of just how good some of our lads were.    Classic example being Baros. He was my boy, I loved him and at that time I wouldn’t have swapped him for Shevchenko or Crespo. I look back now and just have to laugh. Gerrard is probably the only player we had that would have got into Milan’s starting eleven. Xabi was great but he was only 22 back then don’t forget. Carra and Sami were top players but Milan had Stam and Nesta.   I thought Carra summed it up perfectly when he said that apart from that six minute spell Milan played brilliantly all night and we were barely able to lay a glove on them. Those six minutes though. Fucking hell.   Meanwhile, Mbappe is praising us again. I don’t know if the financial side of it could ever be sorted (especially now), but this lad would come and play for us in a heartbeat I reckon. I think he’s part of the reason I’m so underwhelmed by Werner you know. That and the fact that any time I’ve watched Werner he’s looked like he couldn’t trap a bag of cement.   We’re being linked with my boy Adama Traore today too. Another player I’d take over Werner all day (which I'm fully aware that in time might make me look like a massive fool). He’s developed hugely over the last 12 months but is still really raw. Imagine what he could be though after Klopp worked his magic on him.   I get that there are a lot of you reading this who aren’t sold on Traore, but look at it this way. Even his critics would surely agree that there are days when Traore is completely unplayable, right? Shit, we’ve seen it against us, Robbo even spoke about it recently. Well Klopp would make those days much more frequent, like he's done with Salah and Mané. So what’s not to love about that? If we signed Adama, I wouldn't just be posting the dancing Van Damme gifs, I'd be acting them out.
      Wednesday May 27:   Liverpool and Cheltenham were among the worst hit areas when Covid descended upon us in March. Can’t think why that would be, can you? The government isn’t buying it, of course. “There are many factors that could influence the number of cases in a particular area, including population density, age, general health, and the position of an area on the pandemic curve.”   Yeah, I’m sure allowing 250k race goers to congregate together in a confined space and then go off to spread it into all the local bars, coffee shops and restaurants had nothing to do with it. Or allowing 3,000 fans from Madrid to fly in to attend a footy match, even though in their own country that was no longer allowed because of the escalating rate of infection.   I’m 99% sure I caught it at that Madrid game. I know without any question that I passed it onto to my wife and daughter but thankfully we’re all ok (although my wife still isn’t fully recovered and has had various other issues as a result of it), but for all I know though I’ve passed it on to someone else who may have died, or who spread it to someone else who did. There’s no way of knowing, so I try not to think about it too much but it is in the back of my mind.   I tell myself I probably didn’t because I work from home and don’t often come into contact with others, but maybe I’ve been in a shop and touched something and passed it on that way? I didn’t show symptoms until five days afterwards so who knows what may have happened in those five days. Thankfully I’d already decided the week previously that we were all staying away from my parents, or I would have passed it on to them too.   How many others like me got it that night and then spread it around? People died as a result of that game being played and because of the decision not to ban the away fans. There have been so many bad decisions taken by those in authority that this isn't even the worst of them, but no-one will ever be held accountable for any of it. They never are.
      Onto lighter things now, and Newcastle reportedly want Shaqiri. He’s better than that, although if he did go there he’d be a massive cult hero and they’d worship him because he’d be their best player. Maybe that would appeal to him, rather than being a little fish in a big pond? Wait, I’ve just realised something. I haven’t seen him in any of the training videos. Is he still injured?    *sends message to journo mate*    Yes, he is. This has to be the longest lay off with a calf injury since Pat Van Den Hauwe back in the day. Has Shaq been messing around with the Bennetts too?   Random rumour of the day. We’re in for PSG right back Thomas Meunier. Not having that at all. We’ve got the best right back in the world and behind him we’ve got a kid who looks like he’s got everything it takes to be a great fill in any time Trent needs a rest.  If you ignore his age and the fact he’s a kid that’s come through the Academy, and just judge Neco Williams on the performances he’s put in when he’s played in the first team, I reckon he’s not been spoken about anywhere near enough.   He’s been man of the match in at least half of those appearances, and you can make a case for it in all but one of the others too. Neco is going to be a top player, so no, we don’t need an expensive, highly paid established international to act as cover for Trent.    This is uncannily like a situation I found myself in as Portsmouth boss on Footy manager last week. I’ve got a brilliant young Danish right back (you won’t know him, he’s a regen as I’m into my 12th season now) and I had Brazil’s first choice right back rotating with him. It was a perfect set up, except I had a home grown kid coming through who was class so I reluctantly sold the Brazilian to clear a path for him.   These are the tough decisions us top managers need to make, and I’m sure Klopp is cut from the same cloth as me so Neco’s path will be clear and we won’t be signing Meunier or anyone else for that matter.   Now onto your 'weekly Chico'. Today it's not Stevie Nicol talking bollocks, it's someone talking bollocks about Stevie Nicol. Tony Evans says Nicol was better than Maldini. Fucking hell is it any wonder we get so much shit from other fans?   Maldini is widely regarded as the greatest left back of all time. Stevie Nicol was brilliant and massively under-rated by many, but just stop it, please. Now if he'd said that Andy Robbo was better than Maldini, I think that's something we could all get on board with.     This is just a teaser, click to view the full article   Please note that the Week that Was is only available to website subscribers.
