    And, I mean, "he doesn't score enough for England" is a pretty poor justification for writing articles on whether he eats breakfast or not.
    He copped garbage because he had the temerity to demand what he was worth when Liverpool tried to cheap out on the new contract they were offering him.

    A thing that's biting at me is its all very well and good the pundits sticking up for him, but lets not forget that the stick the press are beating him with (arrogant, entitled, selfish, etc etc) are all the ones the Liverpool old boys started flinging in the first place when he wanted to leave. Rather than sell the obvious positives of staying at Liverpool (the history of nurturing young British talent than no one expected Pep to do, game time no one believed he'd get.... maybe they actually knew there were no positives....), they went for the negative cheap digs at the boys personality. The **** stuck, and the papers now cash in on it because its what Baz, 39 from Luton believes. I'd bloody love one of the pundits to admit this on TV, even better if its one of the Liverpool boys (basically only Lawro at the WC isn't it?)

Otherwise Graeme Hick and Mark Ramprakash would be viewed as two of the finest batsmen ever to draw breath.
    I think you should check in on last seasons' stats and then check in on the definition of 'fine'.

    I am proud of this post.

    They are completely different things. I will upload a 3 hour YouTube video explaining why, and I expect you to take notes so nothing is taken out of context.

    I didn’t think they had much chance after their showing against Russia and Denmark but that Croatia side looks so, so good on paper.
