    Foreign overload is KILLING our club.

     

    First up muppets i have changed my ID to paisley_shanks_legend from now on! Two reasons for this. Firstly to show ultimate respect to our two greatest leaders and secondly to acknowledge the prowess and superior footballing knowledge i have displayed on this board. You know it makes sense :)

    NOW down to business. I think all true LFC fans will agree that the latest debacle over work permits for TORRES and BABEL proves that the whole foreign overload that is destroying the integrity of our club is getting ridiculous. Here's the deal as i see it...

    I believe at LEAST 70 per cent of any first team in the EPL should be from the BRITISH ISLES (including Rep of Ireland). I believe FIFA need to bring this rule into being as it is KILLING our country and more importantly our club. Just look at the amount of foreign garbage coming and going with RAFA in charge it's beyond a joke. Now, before the haters start whining i will state i am not racist and i am happy to accept the ODD FOREIGN player into a team as long as they are PROVEN to be of exceptional quality and can speak ENGLISH! If you are a ronaldo, henry or van nistlerroy for example then you are welcome.

    All of the SHITE that is cluttering up our great club is a disgrace and enough is enough. Our whole history of superb players is ALL HOMEGROWN and the fact tha we haven't had a worldclass striker since MICHAEL OWEN tells you all you need to know.

    You have to give the Mancs credit here. SAF whole core is made up of great BRITISH talent while ours is being pi**ed away and it's unacceptable! Any LFC supporter who cannot see this is a traitor to his club and needs to explain himself and suffer the consequences...

    • So would you happily sacrifice our standing in any european competition as if we were to use mainly homegrown 'talent' we would be eliminated in Europe just as the national side cannot compete seriously internationally, Liverpool would be unable to, a player should be selected for his skills and not his nationality, else football cannot truly claim to fight racism and please stop your exaggeration our club is far from dead or dying, and just as this countries economy relies on outside help so does the EPL

    • Obviously that sniff sniff is you at the glue again.

    • A passport is basically a piece of paper! I'm talking football. There is NO British football team, so why even talk about a boundary? Why exclude good players from other places? Just another of his many comments that don't make any sense!

    • Sean,

      There is NO British football team - plain and simple!

      So, if he wants to exclude people, he should exclude all except English footballers. The level of play in England is far superior to the rest of the British Isles, so why want poor players from poor leagues just because they are part of the same island land-mass??? If you are English you are also British, but you are also a citizen of the European Union. You can't exclude European players any more! Being Scottish doesn't make you English - ask a Scot!

      It's like his rants about football only beginning in 1993. Selective use of the past. It should be the entire past, or just the present. We have 18 titles, all in the past. The Mancs have 16, and 15 are in the past! Next month all 16 will be in the past!

      PiSstaker's arrogance and ignorance are only outdone by his constant xenophobia, and he can't even get that right - his swastika flag is upside down and he salutes with the wrong hand :-)

    • Fergie, and he won it this year....was that a trick question or something?

    • P-S the wanker says 'Now, before the haters start whining i will state i am not racist and i am happy to accept the ODD FOREIGN player into a team as long as they are PROVEN to be of exceptional quality and can speak ENGLISH! If you are a ronaldo, henry or van nistlerroy for example then you are welcome'..... Kenny dalglish could hardly speak english, Peter Beardsley was english and could hardly speak it and John Barnes was about as English as Greg Rusedski!!!!!! Paisley, you talk complete and utter bollocks!

    • How is it "killing" the Club exactly ?? Last time I looked, the Reds were doing fine thank you very much !

      As far as the foreign signings are concerned....either get with the times, or get left behind. I think recent World Cups bare witness to the fact that the home nations seem to be there to make up the numbers as they are just not good enough ! Besides, Liverpool have Finnan, Gerrard and Carragher starting almost every game, with Pennant and Crouch right up there on the starting roster. Look at the teams that are made up mostly of players that hail from the British Isles...yup, all at the bottom of the Premiership(fighting relegation every season) and in the championship !

    • i think this is a premiership problem rather than just a liverpool one but yuo are right it is a worry whats happenning at the academy is anyone coming through?

    • This from a guy who in a previous post said that we need to be looking to Holland and Germany for our new players. Make your mind up dickhead!

        Well said! Another day, but the same old xenophobic song! I doubt Henry or Ronaldo spoke much English when they first arrived. I'm surprised he didn't demand British managers! But he keeps forgetting that we play in England, so he should demand only English players!

        We have 7 British players (if you include Finnan and Kewell who has played in England his entire career). Add in the Northern Europeans that the PiSstaker wanted not so long ago, and we're up to 11.

        Personally, I don't care where a player comes from so long as he gives us 100%. I'd love a team full of Scousers, but the game has moved on since the '60s and '70s.

    • thas rich coming from a club that is bending over backwards to spend 30 million on teves! I agree that we have too many foreign players at the moment. It's hard to keep a track of who is who and who is coming and going. rafa has definitely showed this summer he has no interest in signing any british lads! Would've loved to see leighton baines, shorey of mica richards in our defence for starters.
