      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.

      To be honest if he concentrated on his football as much as he does his twitter account he'd be a world beater!!

      If he learned to play with his head up, he'd be a world beater.  The sporadic moments I've seen him play without him staring at his feet, he was immense, almost unplayable.  He just doesn't seem to be able to that consistently, whether it's too ingrained in him as his style or something he just can't learn/realize is a different story.  No one can deny his potential, but he certainly seems to deny it to himself.

      Sometimes it's just so easy to talk sh*t about someone. I believe this to be totally unfair, he surely was not half as good as some guys thought he was, but certainly not half as bad as you're trying to make him look.

      "Lazy, shithouse, braindead wannabe rapper" ? What the f**k? Show some f**king respect to the guy, he himself has shown a lot of respect to the club and I think he did his best to make it work, which sadly wasn't enough. But still, - f**k me - this kind of comments is way unnecesary.

      Don't see what you can disagree about, jabv. He was lazy, he did concentrate on his rapping too much and he is shithouse. His goal above showed exactly why he never made it here. Ran in to a dead end, try and cut back in predictably on to his right and just swing his right peg. That's Ryan Babel to a tee and we saw it all too often to know if he didn't change this style he would never make it here.

      We did the right thing to cut loose. He obviously has affection for the club and for that i say kudos to him for having respect to the club who gave him a shot but he was never and never will be good enough because he was a "lazy, shithouse, braindead wanna rapper."

      Oh behave will you, I've seen a lot of games where Ryan has played and I can probably count on one hand where he has had good games for us.

      Look at his goal against Lyon away last season, he had a further two chances to win the game and fluffed them, one shot from fairly central nearly hit the corner flag on the right hand side.

      Sorry I don't choose to arselick every player that plays for our club, especially those whose hearts aren't really in it!

      I think the fact that you confuse respecting with arselicking is not good for this conversation :D

      I'm just gonna say this: it's fair to say he was not a player up to LFC standards, and he certainly had some very, very bad games. I'm not trying to go against the fact that he had plenty of horrible displays, nor about him hitting cornerflags and killing grandmas in the stands. Even so, I stick to thinking that calling him a "lazy, shithouse, braindead, wannabe rapper" is over the top and unnecesary. If you consider that arselicking then I guess we ain't got much to keep discussing.


      Also, sorry for the amount of 'fucks' in my last post, just re-read it and I guess i was in a bad mood or something.

      Babel is not and never was Liverpool material, anyone who argues the point is deluded.

      Got to disagree, he had the potential to be, he just, disappointingly, never realized it. For me, that's largely the lad's own fault.

      Unrealised potential or not mate his performances were not to an LFC standard by a considerable margin, he was given plenty of grace but could not come up with the goods.
