    A big part of the reason Kopites never took to him was he was forever banging on about playing abroad and for England rather than for Liverpool. He contributed hugely to generating that situation

    If he'd been a bit less "Chester" and even fostered a bit more of a scouse accent, he'd have been more loved than just respected, but silly as all that sounds you're dead right.

    But one of Owen's problems is that he's not even cute enough to know that, much less do it, and instead his complete and utter lack of emotional intelligence and automaton-style interviews made the average Kopite think "he's not quite right, that lad", even though as a 17 year old goalscoring prodigy who came through the schoolboy ranks and blew the league away while still looking like a kid, he should have been adored.

    He's just weird.

    You say that and I do agree to an extent but the fecker still won a good few trophies since he left us. With Chelsea, he won the FA Cup, Champions League and Europa League (he scored in the final).
    He then went on to win the Euros and World Cup with Spain. I can't remember what personal contribution he made himself to those victories but he has some medals to show for it.

    Yeah, no disputing that.

    Like I've said before, he left because he didn't think he'd win anything with us, so you can't argue with it, but it's certainly fair to say that he must still have felt a bit unfulfilled because, after us, he was never the same player and he knows we saw the best of him as a player - he was a declining, albeit successful, bitpart afterwards, with most of that success being around him, not down to him.

    It was weirdly fascinating, and actually a little sad, watching the guy during the days immediately after he signed for them. He looked like death warmed up at the signing itself, had "What the tuppenny F'CK have I done?" written all over him and looked gloomier still a few days afterwards when we went there and beat them (the first time anyone had done so there in the league since forever), then spent all his time after the final whistle talking to our players. I think he knew things would never be the same again for him the minute he put pen to paper.

    He looked like that in his last 6 months with us, too. It was understandable then, but it seemed to be his subsequent, default mindset after he left. Maybe part of it was his own reflection on how good he had it, but also recognising his declining levels. Plus Chelsea are awful, obviously.

    I have a special hatred for Neil Ruddock. He should have been a darts player, not a footballer. We had a very good team in the 90s and if we had somebody better than that prick at centre back and a better professional for young lads to look up to you that team might have achieved something. Even with that header against Man United I still hate him.....and I hate myself for reading his autobiography (I didn't buy it, can't remember how I even ended up having it but I read and it was shit).

    The thing that got me about Ruddock was that, in the rare times when he got himself fit and trained properly, he was actually a decent defender. But he usually couldn't be bothered. And just look at him now, what a joke.

    You ever hear of the £1 game 'Razor' Instigated? Something like you hold a £1 coin in your hand and pass it on to the nearest player while the match was being played. The one left holding it at the end of the match foots the bar bill........ Fucking fat twat, Corden loving cunt. Still, he owned Cantona with the collar thing. That was fucking funny.

    He was actually a very underrated passer of the ball... When he was arsed, he could ping it 40 yards on a sixpence.

    Have to say I liked/like Riise but he seems to be getting a lot of hate on here. Why is that?

    Personally I have no idea. He always seemed sound to me. Plus he scorched one into the back of the Old Trafford net. Bonus points surely?

    I hate the entire spice generation - ALL OF THEM - no exceptions, and blame them completely for our failure to win a title because of their lack of fitness and desire. I really hate watching them on TV as pundits, coz they won fuck all and even if some of those that survived in GH's cup winning days , they were in my view reluctant bit part players.

    Exactly. Such a waste, such a waster.
