No-one should be in a hospice at 36. It's so shockingly sad. Thoughts with him and his family.
very sad to hear that horrible disease has gotten someone else so young.
I hope he pulls through but I have never heard of someone that has pancreatic cancer survive.
Christ alive - the discontent runs deep in you!
Why you had to peg back your sentiments because you weren't a fan, I have no idea.
Honestly, I don't even. It makes you wonder just how seriously people take their dislike for players like Mkhitaryan.
Not got a religious bone in my body, but I prayed for the lad last night, so sad
Yep, football is nothing in comparison to his situation etc.
Hoping he pulls through, but the odds are against him God bless.
Such sad news, 36 is no age at all to be in a hospice due to this disease, and hearing he has 3 young kids makes it all the more upsetting. Life is so cruel sometimes.
Hope he pulls through, all the best wishes to Liam and his family
Sad to hear, Hope he pulls through.
That's the "worst" type of cancer if I'm not mistaken. Hopefully he somehow pulls through, but not looking likely
I haven’t posted on here for a long time, but I just wanted to take the opportunity to pay tribute to Liam.
I went to school with Liam and played on various teams with him. He was a year ahead of us and we were quite simply in awe of him.
He could do anything, in a sporting sense. He absolutely pulled the piss with his ability on the ball but always was extremely patient with those of us who simply existed in a different world talent wise.
I remember him being absolutely incredible at GAA as well. He had zero interest and it was only just to get out of lessons that he even played but ,wow what he could do!
Hurling is a particularly skillful game and one in which practice is very important but as a 14 year old he was easily top 5 in Cork.
He once showed up for a final after being begged by a teacher to play. He borrowed my spare Hurley borrowed a helmet from a sub and scored about 2-8 from play in a game we won by a couple of points. A pure natural sportsperson.
Liam wore the United jersey with Cantona on the back day in day out. Teachers would murder him but as a compromise he’d pop the collar and wear the tie only! We reckoned he must have had a dozen United shirts! He absolutely loved the club. He’d mimic Martin Tyler in the 5 a side pitch and commentate.
“United need a goal, Cantona has it. Here it comes.” Then he’d run fecking rings around us and score.
He left school without any qualifications to go to Celtic at age 15. He broke every fitness record there. Scored 16 on the dreaded bleep test apparently. He had graft to go with talent.
His time at United didn’t work out and people say he should have stayed at Celtic for a year or two but knowing him, even at a distance it was clear he couldn’t ever turn down United.
Please bear this in mind before criticism. He was fulfilling a dream that became reality.
Anytime he was around Cork and we’d run into him he’d always stop for a chat and ask how we’re going. Remembered names and all.
To say we’re gutted and in shock is an understatement. It’s gonna take a miracle for him now I’m afraid. It looks like he only has days left.
More than anything, he is a fine man with a lovely wife and 3 kids.
Hopefully the hierarchy will put out a tweet in support, I know it would mean a lot. The United family needs to rally round now more than ever.
I’m not a religious person but my mam is, and she lit a candle for Liam this morning.
Let’s hope he pulls through.
It is one of the worst. A very close friend of mine died from it in his early forties. I'm sorry to say it isn't usually survivable, unless you somehow catch it very early, which is rare.
Lovely read, so so sad
Good read mate. Sounds like he was United through and through. Let's hope for the best.
Such sad news. Hoping against hope it all works out good luck chap.
This was a very touching story, that made him seem so familiar and close.
Thank you for sharing.
Thank you for managing to get over not rating a football player to see that cancer is a bigger deal than some men running around in shorts for 90 ffs
Thoughts are with him and his family.

What a stupid f*kin post
His career never really took off after he showed so much promise in his early days, it really is very sad to hear about such a young man being in such a bad way. Best wishes and thoughts to Liam and his family.
Sad but lovely read mate. Hope he pulls through.
Thank you for sharing a really great story.
It is saddening to hear this happen to anyone, and i hope he pulls through. Thoughts and prayers with Liam and his family.
Horrible news - wishing him and his dearest all the best.
So tragic, poor guy.
I have pancreatic cancer stage 4 (diagnosed August) and played with Liam for around 4 years. Rates are different depending the stages and procedures like the whipple. Terrible news. I got prognosis of 2.2 months in August but still here and getting chemotherapy. Will drop him a message.
Fecking hell, man! Stay strong
Damn. That's terrible, wish you all the best.
Stay strong bro..
God will be your strength.
Not sure what to say, wish you all the best^
Such a lovely tribute to the man. Keep fighting Liam because if anyone can you can
You're incredible for every day you're living. Stay strong. Much respect to you.
Lovely Post. Good Luck to him and his family.
It must be so much harder for you and those who knew him. Thank you for taking time to share this. I think it also serves the purpose of saying that there is so much more to life than the game and results etc. My thoughts are with him and his family.
Good luck Lawman
Good luck with the treatment Lawman
You’ve already defied the doctors this far. Keep up the fight boy.
The very best of luck to you.
Wish him the best, Cancer needs to go to jail, fecking serial killer!
Thoughts go out to him and his family.
Stay strong mate!
