For all his defensive qualities I just see / saw a cynical thuggish player , Pepe is / was worse saying all that .Of all the players you could dislike, why Ivanovic???
Yeah , perfect summary and one I expected tbh .So in summary, you support whoever is doing well at any given time, except for Utd, who you now like because of their big money players.
Strange to pick out Ivanovic. Very strange.Of all the players you could dislike, why Ivanovic???
I admitted he had great defensive qualities .
Of course it's about opinion.I admitted he had great defensive qualities .
You're saying he wasn't cynical ??
Even after the example given ( one of many ) .
It's all about opinion .
Pepe had similar qualities and great ability on the ball and I'm sure he's idolised by the Madrid fans but he's simply hated my many others.
He just stood out for me whenever I saw him play he'd always 'leave something' on his opponent in a tackle , he'd deliberately block people off , I've seen him kick so many people ( and they stayed kicked ) ....Of course it's about opinion.
My opinion is also that. Don't take everything so seriously.
We all have players both in our own team and in others that we don't like, respect, value etc..
My point being you picked a player who normally works hard, fair and keeps himself out of the limelight. That's a little surprising that's all.
Yep, we are so blinkered...
I understand that it would be inconceivable to think of a Liverpool supporter from their glory days switching to Utd when they took over, so I see why you chose Arsenal as they came back to prominence.Guess you missed the part where I just explained that I hated ManUnited for their two decades of dominance and followed Arsenal for the last 20 years where they've basically won diddly- squat ???
Same applies wanting Southampton to do well whilst Matt Le Tissier was there .... is that also glory - seeking ??
Pretty sure I also said that it was never about winning as well ..
By your reckoning I was glory seeker whilst Liverpool dominated but not a glory seeker since they stopped winning ??
Where does that leave me ??
I doubt there's a football fan alive who doesn't admire all of those players you've listed.I don't get why people call me and others simply like attractive football glory hunters !!??
Many of my idols over the years won very little ( Le Tiss for example ) .
I've listed all the players I've loved watching in the PL over the years elsewhere but they include ... Georgie Best , Peter Osgood , Charlie Cooke, Tony Currie , Stan Bowles , Mattl Le Tissier , David Ginola , Gazza , Chris Waddle and my favourite English player Glen Hoddle.
World footballers .... The names that come to my mind in no particular order include Zico , Robert Prosinecki , Rivaldo , Romario and of course the GENUINE Ronaldo
I'm sure I've missed many , many more but as I said I've got a dodgy memory ..
Current favourite player in World football Ibra and has been for some time as well ..
Favourite footballer EVER will always be Zidane ...
So Ibra plays for free now does he? Big money in his case relates to his wage that very few teams could match.Big money ... Ibra cost NOWT mate...
Ibra , Mikitarian and Pogba are all flair players , that's what I like .
I thought you were talking about everyone here?You talking for everyone now ?
You have to admit there are those on here that will not say a bad word about anything their team or players do. Such as Costas amateur dramatics the other night, most supporters would be embarrassed if that was one of their players and say as much. Other supporters conveniently glaze over that and talk about Hazards perceived rough treatment. Just one example.
Well I'm "passionate" about Barca does that not count !?I understand that it would be inconceivable to think of a Liverpool supporter from their glory days switching to Utd when they took over, so I see why you chose Arsenal as they came back to prominence.

I could claim that Kane, Eriksen and Alli as a combination have been much better to watch than the Utd trio, so why not support Spurs?
I guess it all comes down to the fact that I don't understand anyone (not you in particular) who is not passionate about 1 team. At least you like football though. Men who don't even like the sport I understand even less.
