Read this paragraph in the Guardian expressing Alex Ferguson’s opinions about player power and agents.
“His latest comments were made in an interview on RTE Radio 1 in which Ferguson reflects on the Rooney dispute by emphasising that “the most important person at Manchester United is the manager”, adding that “the minute a player becomes more important than the manager our club is finished, we’ll never be the same again”.”
This made me think of two powerful voices in the LFC dressing room, two that are considered the heart beat and soul of our club and the same two who allegedly turned on our previous manager and colluded with the Purslow the weasel to undermine and then get rid of Rafa. If it is true that they conspired to get rid of Rafa and also true that they had something to do with the appointment of Hodgson and true that they are the ones supporting him in the dressing room? Is it then also true that we as a club are finished? As Fungus face says above, could it be that we will only start to move forward once the two lads who are bigger than anyone else at the club move on?
I ask the above questions only because I fear that the days where I walked proud of my club and proud of the way my club was run and all who where associated with it have gone and I am not sure they will return.
There is no doubt the knowledgeable Kop remains although it is also true that we have now a sizeable minority of vocal fans who talk drivel and will turn on their own after reading some London press or listening to talksport or watching skysports.
Also, I have now little doubt that the majority of our ex players talk garbage and are either more interested in their pay packets so they make stupid and unhelpful remarks about our club (attacking Rafa or supporting Hodgson) or are simply too dim witted to understand the difference between gross and net or actually comparing records instead of repeating what those with agendas say.
Am I the only one feeling like this? Are there other reds who feel the same and what can we do about it?
