John Henry Has Spoken - Page 2 - FF - Football Forum - The Liverpool Way Jump to content

I like his style. Both the concept of engaging with the fans like that and the way he is going about it.

 

I realize that this could be anything from him genuinely wanting to engage with the fanbase to pure flat out cynical spin to cover up a lack of progress, but I will definitely give him (and FSG) the benefit of the doubt for now.

What has been said to make anyone think any differently?

 

Some tweeted platitudes from a bloke who knows nothing about football?

 

Are we that naive?

 

"Oh, look he's chatting to some 'fans'! Hooray! All is well!"

 

I don't give a merry fuck waht he says, or thinks.

 

I just want us to buy some more top quality players like Suarez, because we STILL need a CB, a CM, a LB and a wide attacker with pace and goals in him.

 

It's a nice touch and no more than that, completely agree with what you're saying. People are easily star struck I think.

 

He doesn't have to say shit though so for that alone it's good to see.

That was my first thought. He is not doing this because he is bored on a Wednesday afternoon. Hope I am wrong.

 

We won't know for sure until one of two things happen:

 

A) The signing of a player of the level of Suarez (Aguero, Hazard, Sanchez etc.)

 

B) September 1st. If there isn't a significant net spend in this window, I think it is pretty safe to assume that we've been strung along (again).

Good, cos he's the fucking expert on what we need isn't he?

 

No short-term fixes like Gary Mac. He was shit wasn't he?

And that fucking Babbel, how old was he when he joined? 28? Useless old bastard.

 

By far and away the worst established poster on this forum.

 

Did you happen to be 'the rule' on another forum? If so it would explain a lot, if not then fuck knows why you are like that.

Personally, I just think it's great that we now have people in charge at the club who don't have you worrying about what the next embarrassing thing to come out of their mouth will be. With G&H and Roy I dreaded any bit of PR/interview/press conference/etc.

Dear silverlining,

 

Open your mouth, brace yourself, and slurp on my cock.

 

Fondly,

I think it's fair to say that if Mr Henry wasn't feeling the pressure before, he is now. I bet we sign someone foreign and young and very expensive in the very near future. He has to make a statement of intent through action after these tweets.

Or he's just easing the worries after hysterical wankers have taken over Liverpool websites after we missed out on a player from the championship? And no doubt been spamming him all day on twitter because of it.

 

I doubt he's spinning after a lack of progress, its June!!! Its pretty normal to have not done a lot at this stage unless Barcelona, Inter, Man City, Arsenal, Chelsea, Spurs etc etc are all in complete crisis aswell?

@John_W_Henry are we making progress on the new stadium plans?

 

@Jonah545711 Simon, an incredible amount of work has been underway on this issue. It would be helpful for fans to get an official update.

 

Nice the way he's addressing people by name. It's a nice touch

 

 

Hmmmm...

Silverlining is again proving that he just likes to go against the grain, no matter what his true opinion is. Total Wummery.

 

 

My true opinion is this: I don't care what John Henry's opinion is about anything related to football, because he isn't qualified to fucking have one.

Are people really expecting an overhaul of the 1st eleven though?

 

As JWH said we were VERY competitive under Dalglish, maybe a tweak here and there and add a little squad depth. But we are not going to see a totally new team next season.

A nice touch? Please, people, it's business marketing 101. Use people's name to establish empathy because it makes them feel as though you're taking an interest in them personally.

What's your qualifications for having one? He knows more about the inner workings of a club than you considering he owns one.

So what I've learned here is that if you state the obvious (Henry doesn't have a clue about Football) you'll be met with abuse. He didn't even know what it was less than a year ago, it's a completely reasonable assessment of his knowledge of the sport.

 

Absolutely nothing wrong with what Silverlining posted, just an honest opinion.
