VIDEO : Appeal to Rafa to play Ryan Babel Posted by Antoine Zammit January 19, 2010 Follow @azammit I received this video from Justin Block, while I disagree with him I do have to give him credit for the quality of the video. The video is very professionally done, kudos Justin. Share this: Share Twitter 15 responses to “VIDEO : Appeal to Rafa to play Ryan Babel” rafa is too retarded to get that. Velimir, shame on you. You call yourself a Liverpool fan and say things like that, even if you disagree with Rafa you should show some respect. YOU DONT KNOW WHAT YOUR TALKING ABOUT MATE, HE MAY HAVE SCORED A FEW GOALS, BUT RAFA SEE,S HIM EVERY DAY, I THINK YOU SHOULD STICK TO WATCHING BASEBALL AND LEAVE THE FOOTBALL TO THE PROFESSIONALS, YOU DONT EVEN PRONOUNCE THE TEAMS AND PLAYERS NAMES CORRECTLY. Babel is a joke. He has quality, but his head is in his arse. Obviously, Rafa wasnt seeing enough in training to pick him, prior to his embarressing rant. We can’t have this type of personality in our club in a time when everything needs to be kept in house and the players and the fans need to stick together. I liked Babel don’t get me wrong. But his perfomances when he has played haven’t been good enough for the last two years. You can’t blame Rafa for a bad signing either. Babel showed kwality in his first season, but he faded. I’ve lost all respect for Babel. Moaning when he isnt getting played, and then wanting to get off the pitch when he is injured. As for the ‘retarded comment’, totally disgraceful. This is the man who stayed here for less money, turned down Real Madrid, and stayed for the club and the fans. Now the fans are calling him retarded! If he left, there’s no one we can get in. The only change would be a change in tactics. But the tactics used are largely unchanged from last season. The fans criticising Rafa seem to be the ones who don’t know a whole lot, or they are the fans of other clubs moaning about our manager! I have lots of respect for Rafa but he needs to change the lineup 1 striker works when Torres is on the pitch when he’s not change it to a 4-4-2 what’s the big deal Rafa “In order to see change one must accept his or her mistakes” Rafa spotlights on you to led us out of this dark period YNWA! Why some fans think Babel is the answer to everything god only knows. Yes he has potential, but it’s just that – potential. The guy quite clearly has the building blocks (ability) but unfortunately no cement (attitude) to put them together. I think fans views are skewed because of the reputation he came with. Velimir, you’re a disgrace to our great club and should, at the very least, show an ounce of respect to a Manager who guided our club to its 5th European Title! justin you should show babels 2 efforts after the goal against lyon. then you’ll see how frustrating he is. he has done nothing to deserve a place in the first team. to wear the liverpool shirt you must give 100% effort. babel never does. he played all the 2nd half and extra time against reading and did what? nothing. We have better players playing in the team such as Ngog and Kuyt who cant control the ball or pass 5 yards without giving it away,and a left back playing left mid.Unfortunately Babel is finished with LFC, I often wonder how good he would be now if he was at Arsenal under Wenger. N’gog’s scored more goals than Babel, he’s much better going forward. Babel lack attitude, composure and a footballing mind. He simply isn’t good enough and anyone who thinks he can make it at Liverpool is fooling themselves. Very poor video. He certainly has an eye for goal – he just can’t hit the target! I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again – any player who warms up as a sub with this team mates whilst wearing trainers during a match should not be considered for the first team. What an A-hole. Quick note: Its pronounced ‘Red-ing.’ Thanks ;) This guy is beyond amateur. Nicely done video. Like a lot of other people here, I don’t really agree with you on Babel (or Kuyt’s striking ability for that matter). The video is quality though. Babel is a talent..no doubt..but he doesn’t really want to evolve as someone we all fans would love to see..at least not here at liverpool fc..as i keep saying i don’t yet know why the heck do we not have deal settled with him fast..Sell him or swap him RAFA if u have no faith in him..but to wait when again he will train well is not justified..You are a Good Manager..please do something fast..there were news of swapping him plus cash for ARDA TURAN or Luis Suarez..Please do any of them Fast…As it is we are doing catch up..TOP 4 is a priority RAFA..( you know it better)..even IF LIVERPOOL FC HAS TO REMAIN A DREAM DESTINATION FOR PLAYERS LIKE SUAREZ & ARDA TURAN..YNWA..We have FAITH you’ll see us through.. GET A HAIR CUT, AND BABLE GET ANOTHER CLUB!!
