    Rant over. Re the "You Scouse.........." shouts at Murphy, it isn't because he is from Liverpool (which he isn't - he's from Chester!), it is because he used to play for them and regrettably used to score against us a lot! All former Liverpool players get the same treatment and are roundly booed whenever they get the ball (with the exception of Michael Owen of course!).

    Wazza shouldn't be so sure that his bald patch is an asset. I was in Aberdeen in the mid seventies, and went to see the locals play Rangers. At that time, their centre forward was a very bald bloke called Drew Jarvie. His heading of the ball was so laughably wild that one disillusioned fan eventually bellowed out, "Hey, Jarvie - awa' hame an' chalk yer cue".

    Possibly it was something to do with friction compensation.

    If Wazza begins suffering from similar problems before the WC, he might consider spraying his head with evo-stick and dipping it in a bucket of sawdust.

    #44 I'm with you mate, I don't see any need to make the point! I've noticed over the years though that when Liverpool fans have nothing really to cheer about they tend to focus on OUR obsession with THEM....strange how they find the time to notice really??....

    Ian Dowie when interviewed on Sky Sports about the Hull job revealed his true identity, he was asked about management and he said 'I love it when a plan comes together', so he is John 'Hannibal' Smith soldier of fortune friend to BA, Face and Murdoch.

    Hannibal, a well known master of disguise, has taken on the role of Ian Dowie a man polar opposites to the likes of Beckham (who incidently looks sligtly like Face) the perfect facade to hide his vigilante identity. No one is going to want to look at him for too long to try to work out if it's really Hannibal or not due to his appearance that puts the ug back into ugly.

    No wonder he's never in a job for too long, he must have to keep on going off to solve problems where no one else can help.

    So there we have it, the Hull side will no longer have a first team, it will be the A Team. The theme music would be a good song if they stay up, dah dah dah, dah,dah dah etc

    Ha, ha, hilarious, the idea had me in stitches.

    Reminds me a bit of Andy Lochhead, but he didn't need the evostick and sawdust treatment, just headed anything and everything in front of him, great player.
