No I recon he's a Red, just maybe the PlayStation version where you can buy and sell who you want, and pesky things like balancing the books to avoid becoming the latest Leeds or Pompy is not relevant. But that mindset does seem to be similar to a certain Blue side from West London, and a lighter blue side in Manchester!
It´s said to be cruel to mock the afflicted and, in Armchair´s case, this is true! So, a word in his defence.
Far as I can see he is, like me, an aging true red LFC supporter who still basks in the memories of the great days of yore when we were winning titles and trophies for fun.
In those glory days there were of course no Sheiks or Russians around piling billions into the game. Today, the game is different as all of us have realised - but not Armchair it seems! He fails to make the connection between the Liverpool of the First Division days and the Liverpool that try to compete today on what is patently not a level playing field.
Hence his childlike belief and constant suggestions that we "should be like Chelsea and Man City" - in other words, have owners who buy success and with players on 200k a week coming out of our ears. Regards his complaints about Brendan, I think he expects him to deliver weekly miracles in the way of management which ain´t possible given the resources we currently (don´t) have!
So, give poor old Armchair credit for his support past and present, pity his frustrations and criticise his sanity if you like but not his loyalty - that´s a step too far to be fair!

I'm with you on this Miguel. At times Armchair worrys me a bit, asking 2 questions at once, answering himself and then expressing diverging opinions in the next post,he may seem a bit demented with frustration at times but his hearts in the right place, an old time Liverpool supporter through and through. Too often these days this Board seems to be populated with lippy knowall kids, smart-ar@ed Yanks and the occasional gob@hite escapee from Evertomb, Chelski or Manspew and Armchair comes across like a breath of freshair.Keep it up Armchair say what you like and dont be intimidated. And a Happy New Year to yez all.
Thanks Miguel.. Yes I am a LFC fan.. If others decide otherwise thats up to them.. However yes I do expect much from LFC and maybe yes I am expecting us to be right up there competing like we used to..
I also do question the owners we have had in recent seasons.. As the game now is ran by the money men. If you're lucky enough to be ran by a sheik or some other person who appears to have a bottomless pit of money and is able to buy in the top players.. It's rather galling as a LFc fan that we're not able to match that, and never will unless we had owners with similar resoaurces then we'd be back "on a level playing field".
