Please Accept Our Apologies Mr Johnson!!

Please Accept Our Apologies Mr Johnson!!

Blackburn Rovers should be ashamed of ourselves for the way we played against Liverpool on Saturday and the "state" of our pitch. Glen Johnson is right to complain.

It's unacceptable that our pitch wasn't as "perfect" as Anfield and it was also a disgrace that we didn't roll over and allow Liverpool to beat us at Ewood Park on Saturday and I can only hope that Johnson (and his Liverpool friends) will accept my sincere apologies that I offer them on behalf of everyone connected to Blackburn Rovers Football Club.

Yeah of course I do, grow a pair Johnson and get a life you big baby!!

Liverpool weren't good enough to beat us so why is the England International trying to shift the blame onto us?? What did he expect us to do play into their hands and let them beat us?? Liverpool are such a poor side now I'm actually very disappointed that we didn't beat them as they're nothing like what they used to be. Without people like Jose Reina, Steven Gerrard and Fernando Torres they'd be nothing!! I'd recommend that the right-back (if you can call him that as he's not much of a defender is he) concentrate on what his sides shortcoming are instead of looking to blame other teams for this. The "big four" in the Premier League is going to be broken this season as Liverpool are nowhere near good enough for this, that's what you really wanted to say dude!!

(I know Mr Mikey has also written something on this but it angered me!!)

Wow, get a draw instead of getting hammered 4-0 like last time you played us, did we? You must be so, so proud.

Typical responce from a player from a so called big club when they don't get a result they think they should. everyone elses fault but their own.

Liverpool might not finish in the top four but i can promise you Blackburn Rovers will not finish in the top ten, teams like yourselves are reasons why England won't win the world cup with your long ball ugly football that gets found out at European level seeing as i can't use Blackburn as an example lets use Everton similar to Blackburn (except Everton have a better strike force) got humiliated in Portugal. So Keep Your 1 up and 9 behind the ball and see how far it gets you.

The pitch was crap, but it was crap for both teams. Not quite sure why you feel the need to try and put the verbal boot in the rest of our squad. Sounds like the typical response of a small town wooleyback who is perfectly balanced, by having a chip on both shoulders. Just because you rolled over at Anfield last season, I guess you can't blame us for expecting you to do it again.

Given that you idolise and have in captaincy a player that rolled over as if to have a calling shout for a possible oscar and a manager whos eaten 180 millions british sterling pounds and put it in the club to reach to no avail would hurt any fan but to see hardly any satisfaction in the way your team played then moan about it (an excuse to moan)and seeing that we blackburn have hardly spent a quarter of what you have and our team yes the one that lost 4-0 to a moaning half of merseyside, be able to match your team on the maybe not in play but the final score PRICELESS!!! p.s keep yours moans coming in we love em....:)

hahaha, now it's our fault england won't win a cup? theres only a couple players who play for pool with england caps and i doubt capello is going to be watching a liverpool-blackburn match for WC tactics. "i can promise you Blackburn Rovers will not finish in the top ten" - you might have to eat those words like a certain blue we had on here last week.

I humbly apologise to Johnson for yet another Liverpool failure
08/12/2009 05:24:00
Hahaha the Liverpool fans think this article is us saying we are better than them. Bless. You can't help but go all defensive and whiney when you've been held to a draw by an "average" premier league team. Maybe we won't finish in the top 10 but that's clearly not what this article about. It's about you being a whining bunch of ***** when you don't get the result you want. Rafa's certainly tought em well.
08/12/2009 08:21:00
well said fransavarese!!!! unbelieveable arrogance from Johnson and the Liverpool fans who have come on here! We had a Chelsea lad on here second guessing us last week and he was made to look like the muppet he clearly is. I thought Liverpool fans and players had more dignity and class - clearly not.
