PODCAST: Red or Dead?

Recommended Posts

With no games this weekend due to the international break and with a re-union with Luis Suarez on the horizon, now seemed like a perfect time to discuss the legacy of the controversial but brilliant Uruguayan, as well as other former players who left under a cloud. Are they still Red, or are they simply dead to you?

 

Chris Smith is joined by TLW Editor Dave Usher and Julian Richards for a lively back and forth on how Suarez, Phil Coutinho, Raheem Sterling, Fernando Torres, Javier Mascherano, Michael Owen, Steve McManaman and Xabi Alonso should be viewed; while also asking; Red or Dead?

Collymore - Blert (But boss for a short while) 

 

 

Did anyone get called a blert Dave? 

 

No.

 

One player was called "El Hadji Diouf only better" though.

He's gone. Get over it.

 

It's a shame I wasn't invited on to offer that type of in-depth analysis.

 

Jules was there to do that.

I called someone a crab and compared him to Gary Glitter, which on reflection feels a little harsh.

Harsh on Xabi that

Sterling tarnished it with the little bitch fight he had with Gomez on England duty, but his departure is more complicated than the other ones. He had a dirtbag agent he's no longer with and we kind of jerked him around with his contract when he was our best player and should have been locked down.

 

He's since then clearly dug his heels in when it comes to us because the fans hate him, which is human nature. Besides the Gomez thing, I have no problem with Sterling and I think he's blamed too much.

Owen played for Man United and he's a fucking weirdo.

 

Michael Owen scored 158 Liverpool goals, won the Ballon d'Or while at Liverpool, won the FA Cup pretty much by himself in 2001 and contributed more than anyone to our treble cup season in 2001. He's the best young player I've ever seen and, if not for weird circumstances, would have come back to Liverpool long before he was forced to choose between Man United and Stoke. 

 

Michael Owen scores the goals Halle-lu-uh-yah.
