    Watched Reds V Newcastle '97 (the second 4-3) highlights today and was reminded what absolute dogshit David James was. Couldn't stand the prick and time hasn't softened my feelings.
    Dean Saunders was another one.
    Who still makes your mad years after they've retired?

    Apart from the obvious ones like Diouf and Ince, I've always thought Ray Houghton was a knobhead.

    Whelan is another that seems a bit weird and bitter, but maybe both instances are just to do with "being a pundit" (although it hasn't done Carragher any harm)

    There's hardly any I care enough about to have any strongly negative opinions really.

    I've always hated John Arne Riise.

    and Paul Ince

    And lots of players I couldn't stand when they played for Liverpool (Joe Allen, Lucas, Crouch) I actually think are quite sound, it was hardly personal.

    So it's very, very few really. I suppose Balotelli might count, but I hated him before he even signed for Liverpool.

    None just because they weren't much good.  For example Nicky Tanner was without question the worst player I've ever seen in the red shirt but it just doesn't seem worth the trouble to dislike the poor lump.  I do have my own nominations though:

    McMoneyman - led the Spice Boys, then had the almighty cheek to take offence when the club decided to sell him and used that as an excuse to shaft us over his move to Real;

    Lawrenson - constantly on our case as a pundit for whatever reason, to such an extent that he ended up getting booed when he went to games at Anfield;

    Spit the f*****g Dog - utter, utter sh!te both on the field and off it.  GH's rejection of Nico Anelka to buy this gimp was his first serious mistake, and it was a doozie.

    Dean Saunders just makes me laugh. He's either an idiot or a clever person playing an idiot. He'll quote some awful old adage and then explain it, usually badly, and then try to use it to illuminate everything from why managers get sacked to why Wales is the size it is. He's like a Celtic Garth Crooks.

    David James - ditto. I wish I could see a clip of when he went round a Lowry exhibition - this was during his 'I am an expert pencil sketcher' phase - and evaluated all of Lowry's drawings. That was priceless.

    As for ones I really hate, I'm not sure there are any. There will be, once Moreno goes.

    What on earth was I thinking? I hate several ex-reds. Diouf, of course. Voronin, of course. Joe Cole. I'll write the full list with Moreno's blood.

    Andy Carroll and Balotelli.

    Both obviously not good enough even before they signed.

    Moreno.
    I'm in denial that he's still on the roster.

    Nothing spiteful really, but it just would have been better if Michael Thomas had never been born.

    After all your focus on winning is everything, the two reds you can't stand combine 8 leagues and 4 FA Cups in addition to one big ear, while both represented the some of our finest teams ever.... Respect to that one mate.

    Hate is a strong word

    I disliked Tommy Smith as a person (I met him a few times as a little lad) and he didn't seem to become a nicer person after he retired. He was however, an immense CB for us and scored in a UEFA Cup final

    Phil Neal has done a few twatty things

    Razor Ruddock was a massive knob and still is

    Multiple people to hate rather than Carroll himself. I do acknowledge: he was as thick as pig shit. I remember one game, Boxing Day, against Blackburn, typically flat atmosphere at Anfield, people were shouting, 'You're offside!' and he'd trot onside. That happened all through the match. Bloody hell. But I was told by somebody who knew him from his youth days, he said Carroll right from the start had landed when he jumped on his heels. The Newcastle coaching staff, who in those days just sat about reading the Racing Post, looked at him and muttered, 'That'll fuck his body up,' and then carried on reading. No one corrected him. The result was he was in a god awful mess before we signed him. How the hell we failed to spot how fecked up he was is a scandal. How West Ham failed to realise it is bloody brain-burstingly bizarre. But he's one of the worst-coached players in modern history. And it's usually presented as though it's just 'one of those things'. It could have been corrected when he was a kid.
