      Never disliked the guy. Way to conduct yourself, Ryan.

      Anyone else find his Twitter pic as amusing as I do? :D

      Ahaha, I do.

      Nice to see Ryan Babel still having the affection for the club even though we sold him. I always rated him since his arrival and felt he had tons of potential but was just too engrossed in other things, IMO, which affected his football.

       Babel's tribute to the Kop
      Ryan Babel has used his official Twitter account to thank Liverpool fans for the support they gave him during his three and a half year spell at Anfield.


      After 146 appearances and 22 goals, the Dutchman bade farewell to the Reds last week by signing for German side Hoffenheim.

      However, Babel was eager to express his gratitude to Kopites and admits he feels privileged to have played for Liverpool.

      He Tweeted the following on @RyanBabel on Monday night:

      "There is no other club then Liverpool with the anthem " YNWA " !!! #Beautiful

      "But hey I'm gonna dedicate a few tweets to some lfc fans.

      "Wanna thank ALL of you fans but the ones in particular who believed in me and supported me all those years.

      "Its definitely a shame it didn't worked out for me and the club, but that's how it is sometimes.

      "I was blessed to work with one of the greatest football players and I learned a lot

      "I learn to love the lfc way, the city, the people and I made lots of friends in Liverpool

      "I wanna wish Liverpool all the luck and I hope they will end in top 4 where they belong

      "And thanks for still following me on here .. #YNWA"

      Agree with you there fella.  Seemed a decent guy who's head just seemed to be somewhere else.  Loads of potential, but sadly never realised with us.

      Good luck Ryan.  All the best!

      Could luck at Hoffenheim Ryan, hope you score some goals and get back into the Dutch squad.

      It's a shame Ryan could never get that regular start up front and was used as a make shift winger recently, not his best position but I think if he works to his strengths and keep on the team sheet he'll go far.  Whereas claims he could be the next Henry are still questionable, I think he still has a chance at another big club in the future.

      All the best Ryan, YNWA!!

      tbh i think we shud of held on to him untill the summer im not sure what formations kennys gonna go wiv when all the players r fit and well, but with 4-3-3 being touted by a few people i thaught this could of been babels time to shine (on the left hand side of the front 3) as this was the formation used at ajax where he was in his most prolific form

      Prolific?  He was never prolific, 26 goals in 175 games attests to that.

      im on about when he was at ajax where he scored 14 in 73, and what u must realise is that he was gradually broken in to the team as a sub from the age of 17 and only played for them untill he wa 19/20... so this isnt a good record for a lad of this age??????

      Prolific is a record of 1 goal in 3 games at worst, Babel has never come anywhere near that kind of figure in club football.  If he hits 1 in 4 at Hoffenheim, I'd be shocked.

      ok prolific may not have been the correct choice of words but his record is very similar to that of rooneys when he was at everton. but when we signed babel ther was alot of hype around him but he always looked out of place in liverpools team although he did hve his moments. all i was stating was if kenny is going to play 4-3-3 it would have been nice to see babel have a crack in what is his ment to be his best posistion.

      Has showed us more respect and pride to the fans than Torres has with his departure. At least Babel knew how good of a club we are and still does today.

      Former Liverpool  forward Ryan Babel has stated that Steven Gerrard told him that the club would regret the Dutchman’s departure from the club:

      “Liverpool have not made full use of my skills. It was the same under Rafa Benitez  as it was with Roy Hodgson . I think Kenny Dalglish  would have given me a fair chance. Steven Gerrard  was a great inspiration. He often said that I should not give up. When I left Steven also said to me that he was convinced of my qualities and I still can be a big player. ‘Liverpool will regret your departure’, were his last words he said to me.”

      Not exactly a glowing endorsement.

      Steven also said Project Owl was a great appointment and Joe Cole would be as good as Messi.

      Ryan was a lazy, shithouse, braindead wannabe rapper. Looked like he'd be world class when he was a youngster, showed glimmers of promise in his first season for us but just bombed. If he didn't start ten games on the bounce it was because he was dire in the other nine.

      Pick the ball up, control it five yards in front of you, run at the defender, slow down when you get to him rather than actually using your best attribute and just knocking it past him, instead do a stepover, knock the ball into his legs and then stand around wondering how you didn't come out with the ball. Rinse and repeat.
