Makes me really fucking annoyed when we start acting like the Scum. I know a mate of Chris Bascombe, the football writer for the Echo who wrote a less than flattering article about Graeme Souness in the run up to the Blackburn game. In it, he accused him of being bitter toward Liverpool because of his dismissal as our manager. After the post-match press conference, Souness asked to see him privately and complained to him that this was an unfair representation of him and that he has no problem whatsoever with Liverpool, a club he still "loves greatly", in his own words. He went on to reveal that his angry disposition toward Liverpool was down to the fact that representatives of the club had been ringing Damien Duff "every day", telling him not to sign his new contract. Harumph ... we used to be above this stuff.
