I find this thread a little bit unpleasant. My take is that Armchair is as much a Liverpool fan as any of the rest of you, or me being a Chelsea fan. He has his own views which other people can disagree with, can get annoyed with sometimes, as I have. But he's entitled to his views and to express them.
For me, he's probably the most amiable contributor to this board and he puts up with a great deal of crap thrown at him (more than I get) without ever complaining or retaliating. I think a thread like this has a hint of bullying about it and doesn't sit well with the YNWA slogan you lot like to liberally adorn your posts with.
Go Armchair. Tell it like you see it.

This was a genuine question. If it offends, i apologise. I just find armchairs continual whinging, season after season a little bit hard to get along with, particularly when he persists in making massive sweeping generalisations, and statements with little or no grounds in truth. Liverpool are not what they were at the moment, everybody knows that. i personally dont think changing managers every half season, who have not had a chance to build there own team or develop playing styles to there full potential should be disgarded. for somebody who talks about 'one step forward, two steps back' i would have thought armchair might be on the same page on that. either way, happy new year, and heres hoping 2013 is a winner.

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!
