His comment wasn't fine in my opinion
It was a mealy-mouthed attempt at trying to spin it
He should just be honest
He was angry they couldn't lay a glove on us and made a snide comment
Apologise as a matter of courtesy, and if anyone still has an issue after that then that's on them
If we truly were a small club then he wouldn't have taken the job to begin with
It's literally just a matter of courtesy to apologise for the remark so that he can extend the olive branch and try to create a positive relationship with the fan base
Again, it's something he should be entirely capable of
I'll certainly consider the matter closed if he does
Did you support the dream team of big Sam and Sammy Lee. Surely Sammy Lee is worse? I'm beyond caring personallyJohnson, no.
The others, yes.
Would I have supported the likes of Souness, McDermott, Case, Aldridge….? Gerrard? Absolutely not. The reason is simple and clear. Slight involvement, or cracking player, and not full on RS persona, I will give a chance and get behind. Beardsley and co earned it and deserved it, as did Morrisey in the 60s.
Benitez is, in my opinion, far closer to the Aldridge end of the scale than Kevin Sheedy!!!
After, what, 17 years. Yeah, that would DEFINITELY be him being "contrite".
Or, you know, him pandering to a fanbase that despises him.
Carragher was asked by Jim White for his opinion on our new manager and he replied with I’ll just sit back and eat popcorn and watch how it unfolds. Idiot.
I agree but I do think we’re unlikely to get an apology. Not becuase he isn’t sorry but I think he’s kind of previously addressed it in terms of saying it was lost in translation and he was referring to how we’d played on the day. I think we might get a sorry if anyone was offended by what I said. It wasn’t meant as a dig against the club and history.To me it's a simple matter of respect and a clear extension of an olive branch
Benitez apologising for the comment would be a moment of contrition that showed he was committed to trying and establish a decent relationship with the fan base
I'll say this right now, if he did apologise I would consider the matter closed and I'd tell anyone else who was still bothered by it to let it go
It's nothing more than a show of good faith and an act of courtesy on his part
He should be capable of that
