      Apart from the obvious ones.

      Downing, Mignolet, Adam (seriously what the hell was Kenny thinking there?!), Aspas, Lallana.

      Ox, he’s grown on me as a player and really upped his game last season and I rate him as a player now, but on a personal level he’s always been a bit of a weapon.

      Skrtel had some good times and some shocking times at the club but I never really took to him, was glad to see him leave.

      There’s been a lot of players before Klopp came in over the last 10 years or so that I really think to myself about what the hell were we thinking. Lack of ability is one thing but half of them just couldn’t give a toss.

      David James - quite easily the easiest choice for me. Not only was he, in my opinion, the reason we didn't win the top flight in the 90s but he was one of those sh*t players who f**king loved themselves. The constant pissing about with his hair, the model contracts, just everything about him screamed "I'm sh*t but I'm gonna get all the attention I can". If we had signed any one of the other up and coming English keepers in the early 90s then I have no doubt whatsoever that Roy Evans would of won at least two League Titles as manager. (and that's with Phil Babb and Neil Ruddock at centre half - neither of whom actually make my team)

      Glen Johnson - another easy choice for me. Vastly overrated player and one we smashed our transfer record on for a defender. Is he still third on that list behind Van Dijk and Lovren? As I said in the average player thread, I've always had a soft spot for our right backs. But Johnson was f**king useless. He was supposedly part of this new breed of full back where the emphasis was on attacking. Well for me, a full back is there to defend first and foremost. And if they can't do that then at the very least they need to be f**king boss going forward. Glen Johnson was neither. He was another who loved pissing about with his hair for attention as well.

      Dominic Matteo - I really don't know what it was about Matteo but I just couldn't stand him wearing the Liverpool shirt. Maybe it was the bleached blonde hair that he and Fowler had. Robbie was, and still is, my all time favourite Liverpool player so seeing somebody else have the same sh*t hair do as him just made me hate them. Maybe. I seem to have issues with people's hair don't I? Whatever the reason, I just couldn't bare Matteo.

      Joel Matip - he's one of the modern day centre halves who can play out from the back, therefore the entire world think they're better than what they are. Matip was praised to high heavens when he first got here for that reason alone. And yet the fella is useless. I don't dislike him because he plays out from the back but more because others think he's good because he does that. He isn't. And for somebody that big, he can't win a header to save his life.

      Stewart Downing - I'm putting Downing at left back because I can find more left wingers I dislike than other left backs. Despite the left backs we've had over the years being quite poor, I've always had soft spots for them. Usually because they are so sh*t but still gave their all. But Stewart Downing who was f**king useless during his time had the audacity to tell the Liverpool fans to be quiet when he scored a goal. (I can't remember who it was against). One of those modern day players who was so f**king arrogant when he had no right to be.

      Adam Lallana - this man is everything that I hate in football. He can't do f**k all without having to flair it up somehow for the cameras to be on him. A million step overs or drag backs for no good reason. Extra touches that slow the attacks down. It's all about getting the attention. I just hate show-offs and that's what I put Lallana down as. It's made worse by the fact that he's a below average player anyway. Another who fucks about with hair as well.

      Emre Can - I lied with David James, this was the easiest choice for me. A sh*t, lazy, selfish c**t of a player. Holding the club to ransom when you're f**king useless is as bad as it gets. He would purposely hide away from responsibility in the hope of fooling people that he weren't to blame. He wouldn't chase back until he could blame someone else for not picking up his runner for him. And one more for the "care about my hair than the shirt I'm representing" category. It's still my biggest gripe with Klopp that he brought this c**t on in the European Cup final last year when we all knew the c**t was leaving.

      Joe Allen - it's nothing against Joe as a person but I just hated seeing him name on the team sheet. He infuriated me more than maybe any other Liverpool player. I still don't know what he was ever in the team to do. I always felt he believed the "Welsh Xavi" tag a bit as well.

      Joe Cole - another easy choice for me. I f**king hated him as a player before he arrived and wanted to shoot Hodgson for signing him. About as un-Liverpool as you could get. Another who thought he had to show off just to get attention. Another vastly overrated player as well. Arrogant, didn't care for the club, no respect. Just couldn't bare him.

      Craig Bellamy - another who always came across as very arrogant. And he's a million times worse as a pundit. The way he carries on, you'd think he was as good as Messi. Failed to impress during either spell here. Really couldn't take to him. Always felt it was about him rather than the team.

      El Hadji Diouf - I don't even need to explain this selection.

      James

      Johnson Matip Matteo Downing

      Lallana Can Allen Cole

      Bellamy Diouf

      Spot on actually. This is the lad that stank the place out one game and shamelessly admitted to being on his Playstation all night.

      Not a lot of You'll Never Walk Alone knocking about in this thread is there. Suppose it's fair to suspend the anthem for free speech sake.

      Borini, dunno something a bit nasty about that lad.
      Diouf, probably the most hated player ever to wear a LFC shirt.
      Larry Lloyd..half decent stopper but didn't like him.
      David James. To busy looking at himself to make a save.
      Julian Dicks.Never liked the name Julian..not to keen on Dicks either
      Balotelli...." why always me"....because your a git..that's why
      MacManaman. The club made him, local lad, ran down the clock and we got nowt for him..big head as well.
      Souness. Great player but he gets in because he put a story in the S*N...and he knew about the boycott but took their money.
      Joe Cole..left us a lot richer than when he arrived.Vastly overrated.Less than 50 goals in first team English club football.
      Albert Riera. Nuther one who fancied himself. Flattered to deceive.
      Nunez. Better players in the Bootle Jock league.
      Alan Waddle...cousin of Chris Waddle...that's enough for me..
      Luis Garcia. Annoying player, did score the odd decent goal but sometimes couldn't be bothered.
      Mark Wright. Stayed to long, average at best,never took to him
      Jermaine Pennant. No, not at any price.
      Zenden...why was he here...and Rafa played him in the 2007 Champions League final...!
      Robbie Keane. Paid I think £20m..Rafa didn't like him..I feel your pain Rafa..
      Andriy Voronin...who...Voronin. .free transfer guy..remember now..oh yeah...crap..
      Aquilani...nuff said..

      Plenty of others but most have covered them.

      David N'Gog - just an awful awful footballer. Scoring a second against Man Utd when the game was already won (and which I only remember fondly for Reina's celebration) doesn't make him less of a problem in my eyes.  Last seen cocking about up at Ross County. An absolutely ghastly buy and I cannot for the life of me understand what Rafa saw in him. A horror decision that we seriously paid for whenever Torres got injured.



      Ah yes old Eggnog, Good Lord how this team has improved since those days!
      El Hadji is top of the list for me but there are so many average quality players who have played in our shirt over the last 30 years, but I don't really dislike all of them

      Never really disliked him, I was gutted the reason you're talking about obviously but he went on to score in an FA cup final for us and always still talks about his time at Liverpool so very fondly. Plays in legends matches over arsenal for us and lives in the city

      Yeah that’s why I went for Ince as one of mine.

      Clearly a good player just couldn’t be arsed with all the “guv’nor” baggage and he always seemed to be the heart of the scum revival persona to me.

      Bizarrely he always reminded me of loads guys I grew up with who wanted to project “hard man” but really was just seen as a shouty tool. They didn’t last 5 mins.

      Yep those did for me too.

      Rushie was rough at time - I just didn’t understand why anybody at their peak would leave Liverpool. 

      All that pales compared with Feb 22 1991 (28 years next Fri) - I was 20 and working in Safeway part time.

      I cried. Had no idea it would turn out as it did though.....

      Bit surprised to see Joe Allen in lists. He might not have been a top SG-type midfielder, but he was a lot better than many we've had over the years, always tried, wasn't injury prone, and wasn't a diva.
      Am sure he didn't go round calling himself the Welsh Xavi, he didn't pick that.
      Anyway, that's my two cents for wee Joe.

      He was mine initially mate.

      Was all part of the BR media bullshit campaign for me.

      Positioned as way more than he ever was - which is a competent bits and pieces player for a bottom half Premier League team.

      Never good enough in a million years - absolutely not his fault.
