      Johnson whose contract expires in the summer is reportedly interested in joining fellow former England  full-back Ashley Cole at Roma.

      Our worst player last night, he just couldn't string 2 passes together and ran blindly into the opposition.

      His time is up

      SOOOOOOOOOO glad he's leaving in the summer offers nothing now,with all his experiance you would think he would become a great defender and not get up the line as much and be able to read the game alot more whilst shouting at the defence etc; but he dont. He still tries to do them runs we all loved but his legs have gone and he then struggles to get back into position.
      he's not the best at reading a game and oftern is caught out by a pass in through the back of him. Thanks for all you've gave to LFC but also glad to see the back of him now he's done.

      I'm sure he used to be pretty good on the ball didn't he? That was his saving grace... Didn't string together a run of 2 or 3 passes without a mistake last night. Horror show. Where is Jon Flanagan!

      At one stage of his childhood, he lived in a hostel as his mother had nowhere to live. Johnson credits his mother with helping him develop a football career, he said "She had a tough time, bringing up three kids as a single parent with no help apart from the goodwill of close friends, and there were times when we had nowhere to stay.

      "At one point we were homeless and staying in a hostel, but once mum got herself on her feet after a few hard years, and passed her driving test so she could take me to football every week, that gave us a fresh start."[7]

      From Wikipedia.


      Whatever stick he has taken with his performances and one of the last big contract players , this guy has still worn the shirt of Liverpool Football Club and shouldn't leave this summer as just the forgotten man.
      He represented his country as well as his club.

      Respect.

      He's been a good servant to this Club, I know of him personally and he's a good man with a lovely family.
      I wish him nothing but the best, wherever he goes. He doesn't deserve what some are throwing at him.
      Good luck Glenn, I hope you reflect on your time here with fondness!

      Tale of two halves for Glen he gave us three good seasons and three sh*t ones.

      I won't forget the good years he gave us but I'll happily see him leave for the last three.

      Best of luck Glen wherever your playing career takes you next.

      No he didn't, he was just slightly more effective going forward. He's always been total cack at defending and given he is a defender, first and foremost he should be able to defend.

      He was never good in the first place and Rafa buying him was a mistake I'm afraid. He'll epitomise the era of Liverpool being a below CL level club because he was a below CL player...if that.

      I wish him the best wherever he goes next, he'll probably join Cole at Roma. Has been very poor for the past few years but it's not his fault he got picked I guess.

      Well the club paid him handsomely to "come out in front of those people".

      It does indeed, but the grief some fans give the players makes me sick mate, however much they're paid.  They play for Liverpool and I will support them.  I can't stand the negativity some people dish out.  Don't care how much you're paid, I don't believe thousands of people telling you you're sh*t makes you play any better.

      The double standards lately is shocking even though we should be used to it by now.

      Just to clarify Skip, and if you could answer in plain English without the use of riddles that would be great, Glen deserves repect for representing the club despite getting stick all season but the manager isn't entitled to the same respect even though he has week in week out tried to put a team out to represent the club?

      WHAT are you on FFS ?

      I will put this as simply as I can or you need it to be.


      One is a Liverpool professional footballer ... had talent .... won stuff .... and represented  his country 54 times.

        Plus   League Cup : 2011–12 and   Match of the Day Goal of the Season : 2008–09


      Other is a football manager who won a Championship Play Off Final.

      First manager who hasn't won anything in his first three years for the club.
      The manager who was on watch when we suffered our worst loss since April 1963.
      Plays a reserve side against Real Madrid .

      How long have you got?




      Not double standards . Different standards.

      One is to be respected.

      The other hasnt earnt it.








      Do change the record.

      I think Glen Johnson has carried quite a lot of injuries over the last few seasons. He was never a good defender but caused plenty of  trouble going forward.
      He never quite reached his potential for me maybe those injuries hampered him too much.
      Best of luck Glen.

      Your hatred of Brendan is well known Skip but you're talking bollocks on this one mate.

      If Glen is to be respected for 'coming out in front of those giving him stick and playing for the club' the manager is to be respected for doing likewise.

      It's irrelevant whether you think they are doing a good job or not.

      Injuries ruined it for him sadly and it's not his fault he arrived precisely at the most turbulent era in our history. Just a shame that summer we well and truly screwed up - we payed ridiculous amounts for replacing Arbeloa and Alonso with two players (Aquilani of course) who simply were nowhere near their level.

      Once again, the failings of our youth system have come to light, and arguably our transfer policy. Instead of having a youngster in reserve who could have been nurtured and slotted in their places (like the best teams do), we paid through our noses for severe risks that failed spectacularly. It's the same as last year - rather than having young hot potential behind Suarez, we spent it on Lambert and Balotelli - complete antithesis of what we were meant to be about.

      He's utter crap on the football field. Glad he's on his way out.
