On Sunday I watched Liverpool put in a disappointing performance against Spurs and in the end had to endure a 4-0 defeat.
Forget the referee and the dismissals of Adam and Skrtel, forget the fact we had already lost the game before going down to 9 men and forget that even with 11 men we were poor.
However what we cannot forget as Liverpool fans is the totally embarrassing and shameful way some so-called “fans” have reacted to the defeat. Tweeting Kenny Dalglish with vile and despicable language is unacceptable and fundamentally wrong which ever way we analyse it.
What is so wrong with the modern Liverpool fan? Is it a show of frustration or simple disrespect?, either way its wrong.
Do these “fans” really believe by abusing Dalglish it will change the outcome of the Spurs match or if they use the most unacceptable insulating word that Dalglish will answer them and explain himself? Liverpool Football Club has the best and most loyal fans in the world but its reputation is being dragged into the gutter by mindless fools and pretend fans who only know football from a game console.
So we lost against Spurs and we conceded four goals. So what! It wouldn’t matter if it was 1-0 or 10-0 we lost three points simple as that.
The answer is how we react to that and what we learn from the defeat, not how we can hurl insults and behave in a way that make the fans look like uneducated idiots by calling for the head of the manager and to single out each player for criticism.
I’ve been a Liverpool fan for forty years and have never seen or experienced utter ridiculousness from Liverpool fans as I have witnessed over the past two weeks.
This is not a football management game or FIFA 2011 this is real football when sometimes results don’t always go your way and you don’t win.
I speak for the many decent and educated Liverpool fans when I say that I have a message to all the fans who have abused and sent vile comments to Kenny Dalglish because we lost a match “we don’t want you or your support”.
