Message board rant

By Sam Higgins :  22/01/2010 :  Comments (61) :
This little beauty is doing the rounds on the net at the moment. It's a rant left on a QPR messagebaord. I know the Editor doesn't approve of putting up posts about other clubs — but this is more about football in general and many of you will be nodding your head in agreement to most of it...

Rant written by QPR fan on messageboard....

I take more pleasure in seeing Chelsea lose than I do in seeing QPR win at the moment.

I sat through so many matches when we were absolute dogshite under the likes of Ray Harford and with people like Paul Bruce, Matthew Brazier and Mark Perry in the squad and I never felt like this.

The club isn't ours anymore but moreso than that - football is just properly gash these days.

I mean really gash.

Football generally.

I hate nearly everything about it these days....

I hate the Prem and the myth that it is exciting this year. Man City breaking into the top four isn't exciting. They spent loads of money. It's no more exciting that Nameless Fuck getting to number 1 in the charts after winning the X-Factor.

I hate the myth of Arsene's kids. Buying some French kid when he's 17, playing him in the League Cup and then selling him when he's 20 after about 3 appearances in the league is NOTHING SPECIAL.

I hate hearing about Liverpool/Man Utd's debt but nothing ever happening about it. A club needs to go to the wall for the money thing to change but it doesn't happen. Why the fuck are Charlton, Leeds and Southampton still in business?

I hate Frank Lampard's stupid fucking face. I hate that Joe Cole's tongue is never in his mouth, the downsy spacker. I hate John Terry being England captain when he's CLEARLY AN OAF.

I hate young exciting wingers who have nothing but pace. Tony Scully had nothing but pace.

I hate Harry fucking Redknapp. And Jamie Redknapp. And Louise Redknapp... And the Wii.

I hate Gary Lineker and Alan Shearer.

I hate Garth Crooks.

I hate Garth Brooks a lot for that matter.

I hate Sky Sports.

I hate that when a lower league player beats 10 players and chips the keeper it doesn't matter but if Rooney scores from more than 20 yards it's amazing.

I hate that female sports journos are now mandatory.

I hate Mark Lawrenson for not coming out. 'I do like a big man at the back'. I bet you do...

I hate any advert that portrays football to be about anything other than pain and disappointment.

I hate Lee Hughes and the fact that he makes a living from the game. I hate Marlon King and any team that signs him when he gets out. I hate that it'll probably be us.

I hate Phil Brown.

I hate 'well the ball is a lot lighter now and will cause goalkeepers real problems this summer' before EVERY FUCKING TOURNAMENT!

I hate that Kieron Dyer earned more in the time I took to write this post than I'll earn this month.

I hate Adrian Durham, Ian Wright and Alan Brazil.

I hate Gazza. Either die or shut up. Stop fucking lingering.

I hate hearing about Hillsborough more than I hear about Heysel or Bradford.

I hate Leeds.

I hate Roy Keane.

I hate grown men wearing football shirts of their team whilst shopping on a Saturday when their team is playing at home.

I hate that I don't hate Roy Hodgson.

I hate Jermaine Beckford and any player who has neck tattoos.

I hate songs being inappropriately taken as club anthems and then sung in a manly way. 'I'm forever blowing bubbles....'. Gaylords.

I hate Danny Dyer and anyone he's ever interviewed.

I hate the book 'Cass' by Cass Pennant. It is honestly the stupidest thing I've ever read. Chapter 1: Millwall. 'Yeah we took 50 to Millwall. They had 1000 in their mob but we ran 'em up and down the street'. Chapter 2: Liverpool. 'Yeah we took 50 to Liverpool. They had 2000 in their mob but we ran 'em up and down the street'. Fuck me... Jade Goody's autobiography is probably better. Even her non-ghost-written one.

I hate that all good youngsters end their careers at Spurs before they start.

Haha that is brilliant... It sums up in a round about way how a lot of us feel about the game. Although I would also add 442 magazine who have really pissed me off lately.

The latest issue features an entire section on centre forwards, best of, all time greats etc... Is there one single mention of Dixie? Is there hell... And it does cover pre war players.... Pfft — football magazine, my arse.

(1) I hate wall to wall TV coverage.

(4) I hate hypocrites who hate players at the weekend but then support them in an England shirt.
(5) I hate Piers Morgan.
(6) I don’t hate Diego Maradona

Great shout on the Redknapps and the Wii.
And what is it with that Thomas Cooke advert. Dropping the T in IT is not alluring!

I’ve never seen a Danny Dyer programme but he is a tit.

The old boys club on MOTD.

I hate how a minor punch up, or an after hours drink, or a footballer swearing, or any behaviour you wouldn’t expect when you’ve got the vicar round for tea is labelled a disgrace because footballers are vomiting role models. Football is football, not moral guidance...

Oh, and that football bores me, only Everton interests me.

AND! Holding the kids’ hands as they walk out of the tunnel.

The handshake before the match just to waste time so ads can be shown around the world.

MOTD on Sunday morning showing some fucking community project with some no good footballer doing his PR bit.

Tunes played after goals being scored.

No one’s allowed to tackle!

Every fucking clown who dives, and holds his shin in agony. Refs for believing them, and pundits for their approval.


Paul Ince’s self importance.

Gerrard’s face.

BBC for having that bloke from Robot Wars doing the commentary.

And I don’t need a single camera trained on a manager for an entire match! That is taking up your licence fee!

Martin Tyler's & Andy Gray’s love-in.

Sam Allardyce’s superiority complex

John Terry’s place in the Fifa world rankings

The Tabloid press coverage pre- and post-World Cup.

Players not being able to celebrate their goals in their own way because of Fifa commercial interests

Phil Thomson’s face

Tony Gale’s existence.

Fifa’s openly corrupt system preaching to all about fairness and setting an example.

I hate that insolvent businesses dominate EPL when in any other industry they’d have disappeared

I hate the fact that EPL has uncompetitiveness hard-wired into its DNA and nobody seems to mind except the fans

I hate the fact that Roy Vernon seems to be under appreciated for the genius he was, by the club, compared to many lesser players

I hate the Prozone clones and percentage football managers like cynical Sam

I hate agents and most particularly the odious Stretford

I hate bastard arseholes like Ashley Cole

I hate WAGS and the fact that they’ve become role models to lots of young girls

I hate the tabloid journalists responsible for the above and below

I hate the fact that LFC is thought to be a great representative for our city — Texans, Spaniards and Norwegians

I hate the constant eulogising of ’Shanks’ by former players — a good man being praised by no-marks

Damn good spot on the Redknapps and Wii, jeez.

England fans branding you "unpatriotic" if you diss their playing crap.

England fans saying beating Trini 2-0 is good stuff; beating Jamaica 6-0 means we’ll win the World Cup.

Oh, England fans!

Spooney finkin he knows anything. Spooney or any other saying: You have over-achieved though, innit? And making out that is somehow bad. That is the aim, you lemon!

Liverpool fans having absolutely zero creativity in their name-calling. Bitter; yawn!

Ok, exclamation marks.

Fans screaming, Shoot!

Players shooting from their own half; or is that hoof?

Benitez's post-match interviews. Learn some new words!

Post-match interviews that start with the journo’s opinion and a request to agree with him. "You’ll feel hard done by there, won’t you?

Hearing Andy Gray got a blank cheque to stay at Sky. Why?

Players saying they haven’t gone for the money.

Players admitting they have gone for the money, but adding they have to think of their family. How many kids do they need to feed? Just admit it — you’re greedy and the chance to make such incredible amounts of money will only be around for ten years; so I wanna get earning. I’d respect that... a bit.

There’ll be more and I can’t beat the QPR man. He musta been up preparing that last night.

I hate Nicky Barmby for celebrating a shit goal against us when he played for the RS like it meant something.

I hate Vinny Jones for thinking that he is a celebrity.

I hate the fact that clubs are allowed to buy players with fucking money they don’t have.
I hate the sudden burst of talent contests that are all the fucking same.
I hate the fat waiter
I hate Steven Gerrard even more
I hate it when non-Everton fans fucking tell me that David Moyes is the greatest manager I we should be grateful for finishing 5th last season... pardon?
I hate the fact that Moyes never ever tells us who his transfer targets are (I do appreciate why this is the case)...

Finally, more than anything. I hate me getting excited about moving to a new stadium and then the whole bullshit that follows it when we don’t and my mates take the fucking piss.

How about chants such as same old scousers always cheating, usually Villa, ner, ner, ner, ner... like 7-year-old kids in the playgound
"Stand up if you love/hate whoever" chants

So-called fans who take a picture with their mobile when their team scores/wins instead of jumping around like a lunatic and hugging and kissing a complete stranger preferably on the pitch

Who wear club shirts to the pub to watch the match home or away

People who go on about the statistics when you can see it before your eyes

Fans who phone up 6O6

Alan Green gobshite kopite

TV pundits who claim the FA Cup is still as important — they doth protest too much

Who say the Premier League is as competitive as 1st division in 70s/80s — I can't see Derby or Forest winning the Premier League...

Ex-footballers doing the job of journalists

Stan Collymore... what a knob
Dave Bassett, Bobby "the boy" Gould, Alan Brazil, what a toerag

That embarrassing Evertonian Mike Parry

Pundits like Kevin Gallagher who complain of all these foreigners who dive and cheat; see Kevin Gallagher Scotland v Uruguay 1986 World Cup

Pundits who talk about "English" teams being the best in Europe

Pundits who say we need to get a result; like what a 5-0 defeat, it's a result

MotD and Lineker's attempts to be humorous

Andy fucking Gray (Scottish guy who wishes he was English) , mmm hun I think, who wanted to go back to Villa, by the way before Lineker signed, and we love our Inchy Heath

Ok, where to begin...

I hate the fact that Jamie Carragher is revered by Liverpool fans when our equivalent, Tony Hibbert, would be criticised for scoring a screamer from inside his own half because, ’He fucking hoofed it again!’

I hate the way that Jeff Stelling on Soccer Saturday has the most annoying way of speaking possible, by putting emphasis on the most random words. ’There’s BEEN a goal at the Emirates STADIUM... but WHICH way has it GONE, Charlie NICHOLAS?’

I hate the fact that the tv show on bbc 3, ’Num3ers,’ is pronounced ’Numbers’ rather than ’Num-three-ers.’ Following on from this, I also hate the movie ’Se-seven-en.’

I hate the way that business ’power speak’ has made its way into football coaching slang... I mean, isn’t it slightly pathetic to see Sam Allardyce, who must be in his mid fifties, calling managing a football club a ’project’?

I hate that former Middlesbrough defender Ugo Ehiogh has a name that sounds like someone clearing their throat, and yet I’m the only one who finds this hilarious.

And finally, I hate the way that when we were playing Wigan away last season and lost one-nil, Lee Cattermole was the dominant force in midfield. That’s a bit like being upstaged in any acting role casting by Russell Crowe. Because acting isn’t a popularity contest. It’s an acting contest.

- Football clubs being described as "projects".

- Sam Allardyce, chief of the useless fat bloke club.

- Steve Bruce, his assistant.

- All of the Redknapps.

- The way Alan Shearer sits down, legs akimbo, showing off the socks shoved in his trousers.

- Alan Shearer’s face. How he is allowed to give an opinion when the hamster’s dead I’ll never know.

- "Lawro." According to his predictions, Liverpool would win the league every year.

- The fact practically all TV pundits are ex-Kopites.

- Kopites who use the word "knowledgeable".

- Bellends who quote "inside sources".

- Steven Gerrard’s face.

Oi, MIke Dillon, I draw the line at slating Martin Tyler, the best football commentator since Peter Jones. And anyway, how can you criticise what is surely the best commentary in the history of football-related video games?

I haven’t heard the PES commentary this season but it’s been bloody awful for years, and not just because of that kopite twat, Lawrenson!

At least FIFA is mic’d by an ex-Blue who reminds the little runts playing the game of Everton’s 1980s golden era, of which they wouldn’t otherwise know thanks to Sky!

This looks like fun!

I hate that money has ripped the heart out of football. It seems that if a club offered a player £1 more a week than his boyhhod team he’d follow the money.

I hate the fact clubs can be in so much debt, but be able to afford players 10x the value we can.

I hate it that an unfashionable players makes a bad challenge he is publically castrated, yet if its Stevie G Lar or Essien he was ’just a bit late’.

I hate the fact our players didnt seem to give a toss earlier in the season.

I hate ’fans’ that slag players off because they made one mistake, yet forget the countless good things they did in the game.

Similarly I hate it when ’fans’ rave about a player because he managed to score a great goal, or made a nice turn yet forget about the countless times he gave the ball away and wasted good oportunities.

I hate lazy players. You’re payed 50k a week and you cant be assed to chase a ball 5 yards.

I hate diving and even if you did get caught, theres no need to roll around on the floor for 5 minutes you pussy. I would be embarrassed to act like that.

I hate spittnig. Why? Just why?

I hate most of the aforementioned commentators but please dont diss messrys Gray and Tyler, they are legends no matter who off point and random their commentary is becoming.

Finally I want to twist it on its head...

I love it when Everton play with the pride, passion and commitment they played with in the last two games. Long may it continue.

I love Davey Moyes even with all his short comings.

I love Fellaini but I really dont like his hair!

Finally I love Everton and the Goodison roar... It makes all the shit bits worth it

This is a great thread and I pretty much agree with everything above and have laughed out loud at a few. This thread is probably going to get ugly as the Friday night alcohol kicks in.

With a few G&T’s under my belt, here’s my contribution......

‘You’ll effinn never effiin walk a effin lone’. Maudlin dirge which has ruined many ends to parties for me. I have to leave the room and take my wife and kids with me.

80 foot flags hoisted across the Kop or the Holt End or anywhere else in the UK. You are NOT Italian or Spanish, where flags and flares are part of their culture. Gobshites are Norwegian and Villa fans are actually a total contradiction; you ARE the Brums you hate.

The artificial build up to games now which drown out spontaneity. Witness last weekend where the crowd burst into applause in memory of one of our Greats; we have to do it again cos the announcer hadn’t finished.

It’s been said above but always worth repeating....Stevie effin Gerrard.....the dirty cheatin foulin smug nasty son of a bitch....I could go on.....I will......the dirty cheatin foulin smug nasty son of a bitch.....I could go on.....I will..... dirty cheatin foulin smug nasty son of a bitch.....

The Radio City version of Alan Partridge at Goodison who’s monologue at half time drowns out any attempt to discuss the game without shouting to make yourself heard.

The Stalinesque re-wriiting of football history by Sky and the Media which has airbrushed our great Club out of the reckoning like Trotsky. An ice pick to our great tradition.





Phil ‘Durante’ Thompson

The failure of the King’s Dock

We never got our shot at the European Cup in 86/87

Martin O’Neill never looking at the interviewer or the camera (psychoanalysis please)

The way we are written off EVERY year despite a 6,5,5, finish in the league and an FA Cup Final last season. Only because we’ve no money and not looking at the inherent talent in our side.

That’s probably enough. Things I love... Z Cars, Arteta, Pienaar, Moyes telling City they have ‘No Class’, Jags penalty v Manure in the Semi, Goodison night games, the love from ex players. Hugging my son when we score.

Hate is an over used word so...

I love Everton Football Club

I love Joe Royle because when I was in hospital in March 1995 he got us to beat Man Utd and then eventually them again to lift the cup

I love Mark Lawrenson’s daft attempts at humourous puns - if he’s gay then who cares!

I love Davey Moyes because he gave us elation during a good run in the Winter of 2002, a great run in 2004/05 and countless other great memories like Kharkiv away and the semi against Man Utd.

I love William Ralph Dean (he hated being called Dixie because of the racist overtones)
because he was a proper Evertonian.

I love Daniel Amokachi because of what he did to Spurs.

I love Kevin Ratcliffe because he signed a photograph which my late Grandfather gave to me over 20 years ago.

I love Big Nev because he was Big Nev.

I love Everton Football Club because they are my team and my heritage.

All that other stuff just goes on around us and is silly but we should just shrug and get on with it. That is what we do on the pitch. Moyesy and his team watch the others make their signings and witness the hyperbole but they just go out and play their own game. We are Everton and we are better than all that nonsense.

Hate is too often used when you probably mean you are annoyed or frustrated.

and finally, the fact that Mr Simon Ross after doing the job for far too many years still doesn’t know our own teams names and the away team don’t stand a chance.

Yes Steve - and particularly as we are taxed to pay MotD staff to do what they do. Sky is no choice either, the so-called free market doesn’t work there. EvertonTV is good, but I bought my niece a subscription for her birthday and they don’t do Mac - which doesn’t appear in the publicity. Its a hard life, but hopefully a long one.

Everton’s Marketing Dept, i mean fer fucks sake if I was that shite at my job I’d last about 3 days. Why can I never buy any everton merchandise for godsons and nephews no matter where I’ve lived, UK, Holland and now Australia, for gods sake we’ve got the most recogniseable australian playing for us and can the useless fuckers get anything on the shelves over here?Evertons PR dept, watch this space...

Every fucker i meet from ireland supporting the shite regardless and generally not having a fucking clue.
The term "punching above their weight" it’s fuckin football not boxing.
Thierry Henry
Frank Lampard
Harry backhander Redknapp although I can’t wait till he destroys Spurs like all his other clubs.
Players taking their tops off to celebrate a goal knowing they’re gonna get a card, twats, and they call themselves pros what a fuckin joke.
Oh and nearly every ex player that’s now milking it on telly aswell, most of them earned more in 15 years than i’ll earn in a lifetime

Via work I’ve met quite a few footballers and managers, once they’re suitably relaxed its surprising how many of them don’t even like the game and see supporters as idiots and at best a necessary evil

I know this but still I follow football and Everton with a passion, I hate being so stupid.

Loved the responses here; favourite one so far — football clubs referred to as projects.

I guess right now im hating Everton's performance today. A case of believing their own press during the week?!!! Not happy.

I hate that Everton can make me feel like this on a Saturday night and have done on and off for 24 yrs!!!!!

I hate the fact that we were dumped out of the FA Cup by Birmingham City.
And when it comes to football commentators........................I agree with all of the responses above!

Just a few more!

Bad grammar from millionaire pundits "the boy done good" etc.

Everton players or the manager going into print after we’ve won a few, saying "We’re going to have a good cup run", or "Now we’re going to kick on", as the good run inevitably ends in the next match! Keep your mouths shut!

And most of the above, especially Stevie G !

Sorry if it’s already been covered, but I really detest Kevin fucking Nolan. Especially the fact that he could have potentially ended a reasonably promising young player's career with a cowardly challenge and hasn’t got anywhere near enough criticism for being a dirty, horrible bastard.

Also, that little bell-end Fabregas for strutting off the pitch after getting Cahill sent off a couple of years back. I’m not a violent person. However...

Has to be one of the best threads yet on TW, and it's not even about Everton!

I hate the fact that I’m more interested in what Rooney says to EvertonTV than the interviews with actual Everton players.

I hate Alan Green and anything to do with the Redshite... and I also hate the fact that I’m almost as happy when they lose, as when we win.
