Fans View - A defence of El Hadji Diouf

Fans View - A defence of El Hadji Diouf

I have to say that i am utterly appalled at some of the comments on the internet over the past few days.

Some even coming from our own. Diouf is not a saint. he never has been and he never will not.

But he is not disgraceful but to completely disown our own player when he has done nothing wrong is.

To prove my point follow the link - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0XrEpGwIxNU and just look at the challenge.

It's clear to me what has happened, Warnock is a liar and a cheater... In the past when playing against bigger teams he has instructed his players to 'break their legs' and this has been proven before.

Mackie is charging at Givet and not the other way around, Mackie doesn't even attempt to get the ball. Diouf has every right to say what he pleases to Mackie. I'd have spat on him and Warnock (well maybe not :P). Mackie has gone full pelt at Givet, intending to hurt our player.

It's not Dioufs fault that mackie has broken his own leg. What is Givet had broken his leg? would Diouf have been wrong then?

Done nothing wrong? Ok, if you say so. Regardless of this latest in a long line of moments of tossbaggery, the guy is scum. Sooner he's out of the game the better.

if you judge him by his past, then yes. but on this occasion alone he is right.

I'm sorry, but Mackie's gone in to clear the ball. Givet takes a huge touch and Mackie thinks he's getting there first, he was wrong, but the challenge wasn't dirty in the slightest. What Diouf did, whether he's unhappy with Mackie's challenge or not, is completely and utterly wrong. Shouting obscenities at people while they lie writhing in pain on the floor is somehow acceptable? At least wait until the guy gets up to have a quiet word in his ear. What Diouf did was like shouting at someone who's 70:30 to blame in a car accident, while they're unconscious. Whether they're to blame goes out the window.

Having seen this again it is perfectly clear that Mackie goes over the ball as if he were targetting Givet's leg. It is the sort of challenge that gets footballers angry and that is what happened. If Mackie does not want to be shouted at he should clean up his act. It is ironic that Warnock should be giving out abuse about passionate and angry footballers! Pot and kettle?

Sorry, no defence justifies ridiculing another human being in pain, regardless of how it happened, or whose fault it was. Once an animal always an animal I'm afraid, please don't stoop to his level just because he plays for your club, I know you are all bigger than that.

If it was C. Ronaldo rolling around on the floor in his Man U days and Diouf had a go at him no-one would have complained because we would have known Ronaldo was play acting, which is simply the mistake Diouf has made. He thought he was faking it because his friend was looking worse off initially and the ref blew the foul up for Mackie's infringement....he goes over the ball and was just unlucky to get the double break....Diouf was just defending his mate from what he thought was a leg breaker of a tackle on Givet, ironically it was the other way round. Wish Mackie a speedy recorvery but because its Diouf its blown out of proportion on top of the Warnock (****) factor. That fat hipocrite admitted to sending his own players outto hurt the opposition in the past....

Mikey you moron! ;) and I totally agree with Frans.. Warnock is a disgrace... and he should be the one leaving football.. his QPR team are all dirty. Did you see the way they were playing? no way will they survive in the prem!! Warnock did the exact same thing to Simon Garner in his playing days.. so he is an absolute hypocrite... I can't stand Warnock.. and I fully back Diouf in this one.. fair enough in the end it turned out Mackie was worse off.. but the tackle was right in front of me at Ewood and it was right over the ball and if he hadnt had to go off injured he should have been sent off.. Diouf reacted to that.. You are only jumping on the Diouf-Hate band wagon because it is him. If it was Steven Gerrard in an England shirt against Argentina you wouldnt give a monkeys..
