I know it?s not strictly a football issue but the burglaries of Anfield players in Liverpool in recent months has gotten me thinking? Whatever about the ?fun? aspect of thinking its happening to that shower har har ? it?s not really funny. In fact I can see this issue and other violence (apart from the terrible grief which accompany such acts) as being very negative for the city in terms of attracting 1) Investment 2) Quality Footballers
We know that in the past that it?s not just factors directly linked to football which help make up a player?s mind which club to join, but also the surroundings in which he and his wife and children might be living. Fair enough maybe not too many players actually live in the city, but still I think this ?city of culture? seriously needs to tackle these issues along with the football clubs, and other sports clubs (eg. boxing).
These issues do affect our Everton and it?s players as well as the all important media presentation of a city.
City of Liverpool ? please get your act together, offer kids a chance to play games and develop in a safe environment with a future.

I think they were told in no uncertain terms that if any everton players were robbed, they would risk the wrath of the barlinnie firm!!
this of course excludes VDM who I wouldn’t really call an Everton player anyway :-)

Its not about football either, these are merely high profile rich people getting burgled.
My Gran got mugged, who gave a fuck?!

Footballers live nowhere near Liverpool these days.

Don’t believe for one minute that footballers have the nouse or the intelligence to discriminate on the ’better’ areas in the UK to live.
Ravenelli to Smogland anybody (Middlesboro), nah he’ll never go there.

In the last 4 or so years, plenty of high profile footballers have been knocked off such as C. Ronaldo (05), Lampard (05) & Veron (04 whilst at Chelsea). There have been others and yes Liverpool players have been unlucky but this is problem nationwide not just in Liverpool. The title of the post should be fucking removed if not the whole thing. More sensationalism bollocks from someone who hasnt looked into this properly.
The post from darrel was fucking funny tho’

I appreciate you can comment on football games & opinions from anywhere in world but this is a post aimed at the city & is unecessary, if youwere here you’d know that.

Allan Hobbs is just stating a fact. A fact that occured to me too. One problem though! When VDM’s house got done whatever possessed the buggers to think he was playing?
Seriously though, getting burgled is horrendous. Touch wood it’s never happened to me but it happens to little old ladies and’ poor’ people every day.... who never get over it financially or emotionally. Stevie G La won’t feel this pinprick financially and he will have the support of his club (note the small ’c’) and the 20,000 or so kopite scousers (don’t know about the ones who fly in ) The little old ladies and the ’poor’ people get the bulk of my sympathy because they get no support from anyone and have to fucking deal with it themselves.
