Lucas Neill – not good enough for the red shirt

Lucas Neill, former ‘number one Liverpool supporter’ was today attempting to justify his decision to move to West Ham instead of Anfield.

Speaking today, probably from the bank, he said:

“People have questioned why I signed for West Ham and not Liverpool, but I don’t understand that.

“Yes, Liverpool is a great club with a fantastic history but, equally, West Ham have produced people like Bobby Moore, Geoff Hurst, Martin Peters, Trevor Brooking and Billy Bonds over the years. If West Ham was good enough for those guys, then it’s good enough for me.

“If people want to insult my decision to play for West Ham, then they are insulting some of the greatest players the game has produced, including the three men who led England to the World Cup in 1966.”  

West Ham United are believed to have offered the player £55,000 per week compared to the reds offer of £18,000 per week.

It appears that Lucas Neill is the archetypal example of a modern footballer.  One minute expressing his desire to play for his ‘boyhood club’. The next won over by the lure of gold.

However sleep tight Lucas because the fact of the matter is actually this.  You wouldn’t have been good enough for Liverpool. You wouldn’t have been first choice ahead of any of our defenders especially Steve Finnan, and you wouldn’t have been playing the likes of Barcelona anyway.  You would have been at Melwood – training with the youngsters.

West Ham fans are good football supporters, and are probably as adept at recognising a mercenary as us Liverpool fans.  I hope this one doesn’t take them down to the Championship.

Lucas Neill – not good enough for the red shirt

  1. Where is the “saviour of West Ham” when you need him?

    Can’t even last 50 minutes of a debut, and even what little “skill” he had it couldn’t prevent him from cocking up a clearance, colliding with his own keeper and setting up the other team to knock his own team out of the F.A. cup… and he got injured into the bargain – worth every penny of his transfer fee!!

    Must be wishing he’d signed for the “pathetic title pretenders!”

    It’s ludicrous to think we could actually win the Premiership and/or the Champions Leaugue this season but that’s the difference between ambition and Lucas “LOSER” Neil, he is a first rate idiot as is the fool who sent in the first message.

  2. The joke is on Neill. Next season Liverpool will be playing the likes of Real, Milan or Lyon while West Ham will be playing Ipswich Town, Derby and Wolves. Nice career move Luke. I’m sure you’ll try to bail on West Ham just like all their other players did the last time they were relegated. And by the way Neal, you can have Warnock. He was never enough or a player to play for a team like Liverpool, but his mediocrity is right up Blackburn’s alley. No wonder he’s off to such a good start!

  3. L££££ N£££… fantastic debut!
    The hero and saviour of Hest Ham? MMMM, (He rubs his chin in a quizzical fashion). Got in a big mix up with his keeper leaving Anthony McNamee to score a spectacular goal knocking the hammers out of the cup. Not a debut to remember, sloppy defence (said ala Alan Hansen) and barley survived the first half. with a twisted ankle… 2/10.

    Steve Warnock… talented left back, determined and ambitious. Good product of the Liverpool Youth Accademy, we wish him well.

  4. Lucas Neill was a good player for Blackburn and a bargain when he arrived from Millwall. After signing for West Ham maybe his agent was too busy counting his commission to advise him not to deny the obvious reason for the decision. Get real Scousers, your history counts for nothing and any of Rafa’s misfits would cross Stanley Park if it meant double wages. (see Chelsea reserves). By the way, Champions League is for champions, last time it was at Anfield, Blackburn were picking up the trophy!
    ROVERS FAN
    PS: Thanks for Warnock, he’s just had a belting debut.

  5. What a loser
    as a Liverpool supporter i hope Liverpool flog West Ham United 7=0.
    Kewell is valuable then neill.
    he went there for the money.
    he didnt come to a team where they can win trophies.
    SUCK IN LUCAS LOSER with a capital L
    you are a d****head

  6. i think neill is over rated. he would have been a good buy at around 3million. but who really cares that he went to west ham. i think agger is a class player compared to him. then theres carra and finnan. he’d be sitting on the bench until we needed him for carling cup games… i ain’t crying over it !! go and sit in the bottom half of the table and watch us in the CL.

  7. PATHETIC TITLE PRETENDERS… OH, HE MUST BE REFFERING TO WEST HAM OR HAVE THE PREMIERSHIP TABLE UPSIDE DOWN, TOSSER.
    MAKES ME LAUGH ALL THESE ILL INFORMED COCKNEYS POPPING UP ON THIS SITE TO HAVE THEIR SAY, WELL HERE’S MINE. THE LAST TIME YOU COULD HAVE WON SILVERWARE (THOSE NICE GLITTERY CUPS – CHECK OUT OUR TROPHY CABINET (SORRY, MEANT CABINETS / ROOM) YOU PLAYED US IN THE F.A. CUP FINAL – AND LOST. JUST NOT GOOD ENOUGH ESP. IN DEFFENCE BUT THEN £££££ £££££ WILL FEEL AT HOME BEING HAMMERED INTO A LOWER LEAUGE AND WATCHING ENGLANDS MOST SUCCESSFUL CLUB GO ON TO FURTHER GLORY, HE HAS NO AMBITION HENCE HIS CHOICE.

  8. This is in response to comment no.1. How will West Ham “woop our red faced asses” next season……… We wont be in the championship….

  9. Lucas Neill does not deserve to play football.

    Other players would have said that this is a great oppurtinity to play for a good club and iam not gonna miss out on it.

    All he cares about is money money money money money.

    I hate Lucas Neill and i think he doesn;t deserve to play football.

    He thinks Liverpool havent produced good players.

    Neill is insane.

    He has no love for the game but love for fame and money.

    Now that is bad for the game.

    He is the stale piece of the great game called football.

    He was no liverpool fan iam sure of that.

    Kewell is a much more dedicated australian to the team.

    Neill is the worst possible thing that ever could happen to football.

    Liverpool have produced much better players and much MORE players than West Ham.

    It is not about players its about the team. Neill needs to understand that.

    Together
    Everyone
    Achieves
    More

    That stands for team

    Lucas Neill needs to know that it is about what the team can do not individuals.

    Take Gerrard for example: fantastic midfielder, can play any position and contributes to the team.

    Whenever he scores he says it was OUR goal.

    We should try getting a player who is not obsessed with individual perfomances and money.

  10. HAHHA have a cry u cheapskate scousers if neill wanted ‘ambition’ well liverpool quite franklky werent going to win anything anyway u pathetic title pretenders now wawtch neill be the hero and saviour of west ham and watch out next year west ham gonna woop yo red faced asses
