First time I've seen that Anton video.
Here ya go fella no 8 it is the soulja boy vid where they both dancing to it
The general public seem to think that all footballers are all the same - insufferable, overpaid prima donnas. However, we know better - some stand out as objectionable among the maddening crowd...
Incidentally, don't take too much notice of the numbers - we find this lot equally as irritating as each other...
10 - Kieran Richardson
Not for the nagging impression that he thinks he's much better than he is (this would be a lengthy column if that were the only criteria), not for the gobby cousin from Big Brother, not even for the general chippy demeanour. No, it's the hair. That scraggly wee rat tail that we rather hoped had disappeared with Bruce Grobelaar. It's the sort of thing teenage girls used to sport when coming back from holidays in the Canary Islands, and therefore it's impossible to take a grown human being seriously with such ridiculous grooming preferences.
9 - Gary Taylor-Fletcher
Very personal (not like that) one this. Some sleight committed years ago when he was a Huddersfield Town player. Not even sure what it was, but all I know is I get twitchy whenever he appears on screen. Most families have a couple of relatives that don't talk anymore, but have forgotten why they fell out in the first place. This is like that.
8 - Anton Ferdinand and Nigel Reo Coker
Because grown men should not spend their free hours doing this.
7 - Sol Campbell
Slightly tricky to put our finger on exactly why Mr Campbell irks so. Not being a Tottenham fan, it's not the disloyalty thing. It might be because Campbell constantly has a self-satisfied look on his face that makes him stand out even among Premier League footballers. Which is quite a feat. It might be because of his ludicrous dalliance with Notts County. It might be his hilarious excuse for looking rather well-upholstered after signing for Newcastle (it was because of his recent wedding, where they must've served lard and chip butties as hors' d'oeuvres). It's not clear. But not everything has to be rational.
6 - Charles N'Zogbia
You know who'd be good for N'Zogbia? Supernanny. Whenever he fancies a move, he displays all the tact and emotional maturity of a six-year-old who doesn't want to get ready for school. So get Jo Whateverhernameis in, and put Charles on the naughty step whenever he scweams and scweams until he's sick. That might stop him, whenever he wants a change of scenery, from casually mentioning to any passing journo, "Oooh, playing for Arsenal would be lovely, wouldn't it?"
5 - Lee Cattermole
If there is such a thing as constructive dislike, then that's the gist of our feeling towards Cattermole. Potentially, the Sunderland captain is a fine player. A good ball-winner just the right side of nasty, but with a decent range of passing too. The trouble is, he seems to lack anything approaching common sense. How else to explain his two sendings-off this season? Both second yellow cards, both for wild lunges after initial bookings. As has been mentioned any number of times, even attempting the second challenges were exercises in idiocy. We can't help but want to shake him by the shoulders, tell him to stop being such a wang and concentrate on playing football properly.
4 - Nani
Man alive is Nani a frustrating footballer. It's infuriating when a player with so much talent insists on being a cheating wazzock, because he has no need to be. A man who last season began to develop into a fine winger (not coincidentally, after a switch from left to right flank), Nani provides a genuine threat with skill, pace and tremendous crossing ability when he feels like it. But he also provides plenty of opportunity to use language that would make a pimp blush with his diving, flopping, whining, whinging and just downright cheating.
3 - Paul Robinson (The Bolton one)
His supporters would describe him as 'tough', an old-fashioned full-back who doesn't suffer any nonsense and tackles first, asks questions later. His detractors might suggest he's a lunk-headed thug, who'd sooner kick you than the ball. Our dislike came to a head when he said last year, of William Gallas's horrendous 'tackle' on Mark Davies, "It was a disgusting tackle...He's lucky he hasn't broken his leg." Tell that to Abou Diaby, Paul.
2 - Paul Robinson (The Blackburn one)
"Only now have I been able to make this decision as previously I have not been in contention or selected for the squad." That was how Paul Robinson announced his retirement from international football, after being picked for Fabio Capello's first post-World Cup friendly. Without wishing to resort to coarse language, our immediate reaction was 'bulls**t'. For a start, it's not exactly new for no-hopers to announce such a decision - see Cole, Andrew.
And in this case, how much of a horrendous shock was it that Robinson got the call, given that of England's three World Cup keepers, one is 40 and playing in the Championship, and another a gibbering wreck because of that mistake? If he really did not want to be considered, what was wrong with a quiet word to the FA, as Luke Young did, rather than embarrassing both the organisation and the manager with the timing of his announcement?
We wouldn't dream of being as cynical as to suggest that his manager might've had a hand in the timing of Robinson's announcement, but the big man is no fan of Mr Capello. Or any foreign type in the big FA chair, either. Obviously, honourable mention to Wes Brown in this category too.
1 - El-Hadji Diouf
In the film High Fidelity, John Cusack's character is asked to pick his top five favourite 'Track Ones, Side Ones', but is taken to task quite forcefully after selecting 'Smells Like Teen Spirit'. "Oh no, that's not obvious enough. Not obvious at all," says Jack Black's Barry. "What about the Beatles?...How can someone who has no interest in music own a record store?" That's roughly the equivalent of picking Diouf on this list, but balls to it.
Does anyone but his mother and Sam Allardyce think Diouf is anything other than a frightful arse? His long list of indiscretions you'll be familiar with, but he may well have 'missed out' on this list on the grounds of obviousness had he not spent the weekend barging Mark Schwarzer to the ground.
We're sure you'll have your own disliked players, so leave your suggestions below. Next week, to balance things out and assure you we're not just angry and bitter, we'll be doing ten lovely players that we like a lot.
Agree on ratboy, but surely Cattermole doesn't stay on the pitch long enough to be disliked?
I`d pay money to see the fanny that wrote that, grab Cattermole by the shoulders and tell him he`s a wang!
that anton video
Indeed... three current players, an ex-player and one we've been trying to sign is quite an impressive list.
Nearly every play is current/past Sunderland/Mag.
Quite surprised that general wankers of the highest order such as Barton, Gary Neville and Gerrard didn't make it to that list.
Oh, and lest we forget the biggest (unt of them all: John fucking Terry.
Cattermole - not really a reason to dislike him? He's not a dirty player.
What an absolute crock of shit, whoever wrote that should be lined up and shot
ha never seen that anton video before
What is it? Can't get it on the iPhone.
We signing Nani like? I know you mean Charlie
like the bit about Paul Robinson (Blackburn), that 'retirement' had Fat Sam all over it
Him dancing to that Soulja Boy song.
"Here Soulja it's your boy Anton Ferdinand"
Before reading the reasons in the list, its already null and void because Joey Barton isn't in it.
Separate names with a comma.
