Bad year to be a Gooner

Ughh - not beaten by Wigan yesterday but beaten in the tie and by some late scrawpy goal too in a game we could have score 5 but so could they.... not a good showing - mocking United isnt even helping... Not sure what Wenger has to do buthe better start with finding out who the imposter is that has replaced Campbell and selling that lazy bastard Pires. Grim season this.


  • "mocking United isn't even helping"

    Never thought I would read those words from you. Simon noticing the problems at his own club instead of being obsessed by those at United? It can't be. Next thing you know he will stop obtaining all his football knowledge from The Sun.

  • Now that I have banned the News of the World from the reading list, all I have is the Sun. They reckon Roy Keane is going to be manager of Man City when Pearce joins Allardyce as co-England manager..

    John one time offer - we will trade Reyes to you in return for Rooney.

  • Now I am sure if Cisse played for United Simon you would be all over this:

    I am sure you will find a link that suggests that Roy Keane actually broke into Cisse's house and hit his pregnant wife.

  • Boo! Ciise out! get Fowler back.

    By Blogger Rich Hughes, at 12:46 PM  

  • Holy Shit. Just saw this news now about Fowler. Hopefully he will get Gerrard hooked on coke and pork pies.

  • Cisse is just terrible - on the pitch, off the pitch and at the barbers. Sadly he is still probably Liverpool's best player. They have now signed a fat lump who left them once before - and who in his future biography will I am sure admit he was a cokehead.
    Liverpool have to off Cisse - terrible human being that you normally find at United.

  • Rich would be the best one to comment on whether Fowler's return is good for Liverpool, but I bet he'll be welcomed back by the terraces.

    Now, just picture any of the recent departures from Highbury and try to imagine any of these hoses being welcomed back as warmly -- Anelka, Wiltord, Vieira, Pennant, Upson, Wright. Only ones that sort of left on good terms are Edu and Kanu.

    Bleak indeed.

  • There are two aspects to this:

    Fowler's influence as a player

    Folwer's influence as an icon.

    Can he be the 'goal every 2 games' player we had? Not sure. He's been injured for a long time and getting less serice at other clubs. Found 4 goals in his last 2 games, but he's 30 now. Still a natural finisher - arguably something we need.

    The dressingroom, terraces and city will all be buzing. He can lift us to a new level. I've just seen his first interview - he loves this club.

  • Fowler as a player wont run so forget a goal every 2 games...
    As for everyone buzzing - odds on Crouch, Cisse and the like will not be so thrilled. Still he is injury prone, lazy and I think past it so he may make no impact to the starting line up anyway. Time will tell.

    By Blogger Simon Burke, at 3:22 PM  

  • Exactly as I would have suspected. Here on the North Bank, you could probably find someone who says "we SHOULD bring back Vieira," but I bet more than a few would not want him.

    I'm envious not necessarily of what Fowler brings as a player, but of what he means as a icon. Even Henry's genius feet are suspiciously made of clay.

  • Fowler brings coke. Thats about it. Liverpool fans all vote as a solid block and love their local lads even when they leave their club for Leeds after a couple of seasons of being crap. Liverpool fans arent necessarily that bright.

    By Blogger Simon Burke, at 3:37 PM  

  • I understand their affection towards Fowler as a local lad. Those are appreciated at United too. Even when he was scoring for City against United he was giving United fans the 5 fingers for their 5 European Cups. As a hateful person who likes to turn the screw in others, I respect that. Liverpool fans would have loved when he did that which is why I was disappointed many of them, and none of the lads here I might add, made such a big deal after Gary Neville's antics. They would soak it up if Gerrard did the same to United fans at Anfield (and he probably will some day too).

    As a move, its not a bad one I think. Nothing really to lose for Liverpool. Clever move getting him just for the end of the season. Make him hungry for a new contract. If he does even half as well as he did at Liverpool in his early days, it will be considered a masterstroke. If he is shite, release him in the summer and nothing lost.

    I suppose the only risk is that he will somehow upset the apple cart. Team spirit has been a major factor in Liverpool's improvement and I suppose there is a chance he will be a distraction and will bring back some of the Spice Boy attributes. (White Armani suits anyone?)

    I think as a 30 year old who, it has to be said, has wasted much of his career even though he is a very rich boy, he will appreciate playing for the club he loves more than maybe he did as a kid.

  • Wait a second.....I forgot that Fowler was an Everton fan growing up. Scratch the above. He is a fat, mercenary, coke-head.
