Guess he's blown the United ambassador job then.
Go easy on him, if you looked like a drag queen you'd be trying to prove how hard you are all the time too.
Oh the grand Manchester education system's finest. Wonderful use of grammar and big words.
no wonder he needed a bigger contract then....... to pay for this kind of shite.
I imagine you as one of three guys.
Guy nr. 1: Quoted a few posts to some caf members. Someone noted that you did it twice. Praised you for it. You thought "holy shit they like me if I do this" and then you built yourself up a reputation for finding quotes. Now you try your hardest and it really takes an effort to constantly supply what the public demands but you have a reputation to keep
Guy nr. 2: It's no effort for you at all. You now what thread it was in so you word search or something inside threads and help out without bothering yourself.
Guy nr. 3: You're some kind of rain man. You see a post that you think might come up in the future. Add it too your bookmarks file cabinet in your browser which is endless and then when it comes up you provide the quote with one click.
Personally I think it's closest to nr. 2 though I want it to be number 3. Either way well done
I pick number 1
Thanks, though it was just 3 pages back: http://www.redcafe.net/f7/ravel-morrison-sold-west-ham-342399/index106.html I remembered it being discussed in this thread a few weeks back.
Got no idea how I started to get this reputation. I'm certainly no rain man that's for sure. I don't do it to be liked (and some don't like me purely because of it) so I'd say it's closest to number 2, though some things take a bit more effort, nearly everything I've found on this site has been easily accessible.
'Crack head' by Ravel Morrison [edited by Waltraute]
He'd fit in at Liverpool
He will be on the football scrapheap by 26
Some stuff about Ravel's transfer, from West Ham Co-Chairman David Sullivan:
In Conversation With David Sullivan - Dale & Co.
More likely Redknapp was smart enough to pick up the phone to Sir Alex rather than Ravel Morrison's agent.
David Sullivan is a muppet isn't he, I doubt Ravel even knows the names of all the Glazer's in fact I don't Ravel knows who the feck David Sullivan is.
Interesting that he openly admits how big a gamble Morrison is for them as a signing - I highly doubt him leaving United would have been remotely influenced by him not meeting the Glazers though.
Too many "Man U"s for my liking.
Ravel went for the money by the sound of things. "Could be our best or worst signing" is a dreadful statement to make on a troubleheaded youth who ultimately left because the best manager in the world couldn't manage him. Signs.
So we've got a couple of mill for him? Good price given his age and how long he had left on his contract. If he had left for free and we got compensation on him it would have been less, and Newcastle were offering around a quarter of that.
Not a good move to say he could be the best signing or worst signing though. Sure, think that privately like many of us do, but don't say it publicly...
How's he been doing on the pitch since the move?
Hasn't been in the squad till yet. Played in two or three closed door friendlies, so nobody knows.
I get the feeling that the signing was more Sullivan's than Allardyce's.
I've heard they call him "Charlie Sheen" at WHU's training ground.
This pleases me greatly
These "feelings" and stuff you've "heard".
What you actually mean is "I read on Twitter", right?
Twitter...it will always tell you what you want to hear. If you say everything, someone has to be right.
It shouldnt really. A waste of talent should never be celebrated.
Let it goman, its much better for your mental health....
I've read interviews with Sullivan and Allardyce about Morrison in the last weeks therefore i've this "feeling".
A friend of mine is a West Ham fan and his sister-in-law works at Chadwell Heath therefore i've "heard" it.
Why would he be called Charlie Sheen?
a) Promising Actor?
b) Mentally Unstable Egotist?
c) Hookers and Blow?
d) Demanded a payrise and got his contract terminated?
He's got two and a half personalities?
I know, but I'm bitter how this guy treated us as a club after all the shit he's put us through. Obviously we were too lenient with the player, as he seemed to think he could behave however he wanted and get away with it. Good riddance in the end, but I hope he'll realise his mistake now that he's not even getting into the WHU squad.
On the bench today.
Probably thinks he's the guy who wrote Only Fools and Horses.
I don't even think he knows what Only Fools and Horses is.
Well David Sullivan is a bit of a Del Boy isn't he?
Twitter says he was in the squad today, but also that he missed training 3 times this week and was fined 2 weeks wages.
Does this boy never learn. He has such talent and is throwing it away. If he drops out of football he will either end up in jail or dead. I am being serious about this.
It's got to that stage where you just have to laugh at the idiocy.
I know where you are coming from, but it makes you mad when you an lots of others would love to be a professional footballer. He was at the best club and blew it. Now he is at a club that is great at nuturing kids and still he self-destructs. What a ungrateful idiot.
Just a twitter rumour by two or three people. If he was missing training sessions, surely he wouldn't have been on bench for West Ham.
I don't know maybe Sam fast tracked him in as motivation i.e. you're not too far off, keep working hard etc.. Definitely not in the managers handbook but that said Mancini still played Balotelli last week after he went to a strip club in the early hours of the morning.
To be honest if that story about missing training is true then it actually makes me a bit glad. Just reaffirms the fact he doesn't have the right mentality for a top club and that we were right to let him go.
I know we've all known that to be his temperament for a while, but if he truly has been behaving like that after only signing recently then it leaves little doubt that he is the problem and not disillusionment with the club or concerns about how we handle our youth contracts or anything.
Fergie supposedly transferred him to get him away from the bad influences. Maybe he just took them with him or has found some more.
