Keeper of the Seven Jersey



Steve McManaman, Vladimir Smicer, Harry Fooking Kewell . . . these are just some of the luminaries to have won the fabled no7 shirt @ Anfield in recent years & failed to live up to the legacy of their majesties Keegan & Dalglish.

So me is hoping that new 20m quid signing Robbie Keane ain't gonna disappoint coz its a helluva a lot of dough to cough up fer a 28-year old. Am pretty unsure why Rafa deemed it necessary to fork out such a large sum when Owen is available fer a cut-price 5million. And if he is going to deploy two strikers Crouchinho was more than useful at holding the ball but was never given the chance. As fer trickery & imaginative footie, what about Benayoun?

Me thinks Rafa will once again shove Gerrard out wide to accommodate Keane. Besides, Pennant is being off loaded & no impending transfer news regarding a quality right winger, so there.

Anyways, since we're on the subject of LFC & the coming season, here are a few of me worries. Rafa is buying loadsa young players with supposed "bags of potential" but never get to see any first team action. Remember Houllier & his stars of the future policy? Remember Gregory Vignal, Florent Sinima Pongolle, Anthony Le Tallac & many others?

Only one player who was bought as a teenager by Houllier emerged with any semblance of regular first XI football . . . Djimi Fooking Traore!!!

Wonder which of these so-called superstars of the future - Nabil El-Zhar, David Ngog, Damien Plesis - will turn out to be the new Djimi. Suffice to say me is bracing meself fer another season of disappointment as it has been fer almost two decades now give or take a pot or two along the way.

ps: Fer all those who are gonna hammer me fer being the eternal pessimist, please ask yerselves if this team look like they gonna deny the scum from equalling our league titles this coming season . . .

pps: While me welcomes all genuine footie fans opinions on the coming season, me leaves you with a vid of the last great No7 to grace the turf at anfield (also the last manager to win the league fer us . . . sigh . . .)

ahh, finally he's no longer a scum....

hehhhehehehe....

sorry mozz.

I think we shd give Keane the benefit of the doubt. I have a feeling this signing is good. Proven goalscorer, British etc.
When we signed Torres last year, it was a gamble too wasn't it? Look what happened with Morientes!

Kerp : who is no longer a scum? Don get u.

akuani said...

*enjoyed the video* agree Keegan and Dalglish (sp) were awesome to watch.

It would seem that good footie now apparently comes with hefty price tags - is it only the fans that love the game, and players and FC love the kaching kaching in their bank accounts?

All fair on the footie pitch ... so here's to LFC having a good season. In the mean time ... got me own concerns this season *sigh*

j or ji said...

the scum will be champions again and again..the kop can go on talking about history.

yeah! :)

anfield devotee said...

j or ji: You see why yer lot are not well liked. People who call their stadium 'Theatre of Dreams' dare even accuse US of talking about history. Go fook yerself. Bet you don't even know why its called that do you?

In spite of yer 20-year domination, might me humbly remind yer goodself that yer still behind us in league/europe tally. Shame innit . . .
ps: History? Siapa yang nak tiru nak ado lagu special semua? "Fergie wants anthem similar to LFC's" . . . cis . . .

akuani: go hold hands with yer brethean above!

mohan: yer most welcome!

LLT: FYI, Kerp refers to spurs as scum . . .

Kerp: Alonso? Berapa you offer?

Bernard said...

LLT : Who is meant by "scum" is relative to who's saying it. For us Liverpool fans, it would be MU & Everton. In Porno Kerp's case, it would be Spurs. I don't know where J or Ji's allegiance stands. He could well be a Southampton fan like Nanda, so for them, scum would be Portsmouth. Up the Pompey???

Bernard said...

AD : Looks like you beat me to the explanations...

J or Ji & akuani : Please take a good look at me avatar pix & COUNT 'EM STARS. That is if you could count.

anfield devotee said...

Bernard: TQ kind sir fer saying yer five stars worth . . .

akuani said...

AD/Bernard: Ok so I love the team you hate. Don't see me saying nasty things to you do you?

And I was from the heart saying Keegan and Dalglish were awesome to watch. Next thing I know, I get told to go fook myself? WTF??!!!

WHATEVER! Pretty uncalled for if you ask me but if it rocks your boat then so be it. Unimpressed totally by Kopite fans ... LFC the team, I respect their game!

Jon-C said...

Owen = a has been :0P No thanks!

Like wise not impress by most of the "sandwich brigade." ;0)

anfield devotee said...

akuani: Eh? Aunty just ask you to go hold his hand la . . . like the Beatles? Hee hee !

JonC: Yes, agreed that Owen has lost a lot of his lustre but at 5million quid, worth a gamble. Plus he's playing fer a place in S.Africa 2010. So plenty of incentive fer him to step it up.

Kopite78 said...

I knew I got the smell of scum when I came to AD's blog. Manure scum talk about history need to check in with themselves and note something. It has been 18 years since we won the league, but we still have the most league titles?

Hmmmm...what does that say about your beloved Manure???

Tinesh said...

ONE league title short. This season is the season for us to equal it..As for the Euro's, two more cups and we equal it as well..Dont forget, 86-90, no english team was allowed to play in europe thanks to you people. 5 years, definitely we could have done something.

And you gotta admit, MU has a better shot at winning titles compared to ya'll

*braces attacks*

Mohan said...

dear j or ji, dear .ani, dear tinesh: Go fuck yourselves!!(in a nice polite way of course).

Yeah keep dreaming...achieving our record! We'll see what happens next season!

You're such a perfect team that you got your crybaby star player wanting to bolt even after accidently winning the champions league by diving and sir alex telling the refs to protect my cryBaby cause he's a fragile fuckin' baby you know!!...and we're getting him ready for Madrid!! AM wondering why them corporate fuck of your audience at Old Trafford are boring and upper class crapheads..tak ada passion lah scummers!!, and someone like auntie .ani wanting to be on our reserve team..speaks loads of your idea of passion huh!!
Repentlah Scummers!!!
M.

akuani said...

auntie .ani is happy as is - ain't being no reserve on your team PG-18 M ....

stop dragging me into this testosterone juvenile insult exchanging ok - bigger picture boys!

I enjoy watching a good game and I enjoy it a little more when it's my team ...

boys!!!! sheez ...

nobody explains it better than how bernard did.

boss,

who needs alonso when we got cesc? i'm not gloating la but we already have a few lads good enough for the first team.

mr Muru's apa cerita brader?

Life's Like That said...

Tinesh, j or ji : Like M said, go sort out your own mess b4 commenting on others! If yr crybaby leaves, u ain't gonna get nothing this season! Dream on! last year was a fluke!

Ani : y they so mean to u? So kesian. I guess they'll be even more cruel when we beat the daylights out of u next season!

Tinesh said...

Our mess is our problem. It should be settled when the season starts..

Upperclass? I defs aint upperclass bro..And we know alotta people support MU just cause of a few players. We never said we were perfect. We're just damned good :D

anfield devotee said...

Tinesh: "86-90 - banned fer five years thanx to you people, we could have done something".

Young Man, (in the most patronising & condescending tone me can muster), back then only the LEAGUE CHAMPIONS qualified fer European Cup.

Hmmmmmm . . . did you win the league between 86 & 90? Noooooooo. Coz you FOOKS waitied . . . how many? . . . 23 years in between titles (& you dare laugh at OUR drought?) . . .

Not perfect? Fer sure. Ignorant? Bloody hell . . .

Akuani: Aunty, can you please go hold Tinesh's hand as well . . .

akuani said...

Anba: I agree - peace to all! Fans remain fans no matter what happens at least I think so.

Gavin: Ahem been there too many countless times - remember our dry years (refer AD) - you fellas sticking to your boys, we did too ... altho CR is making me want to kick his butt big time - I so hate prima dons! within a team...

AD: Hello do I look like I go around holding boys hands or what???? I'm an old auntie but men drought or not (ahahahah) I'll skip the hand holding especially if they've taken your "fook yourself" seriously! EEEewwwweeeeeeeee!!! Sanitizer please!
