Please shut your moronic mouth. Dunce! We have heard this pathetic and unintelligent comment for years and it pretty much shows what I have always thought about you-- a stup1d moron.

Because a man is poor and jobless does not mean that he should accept insults from outsiders. Whether our country or league is sh1tt does not mean we should be insulted by a man whose teeth was rotten until 4 years ago.

Please go and fook yourself. Moron.
How old are you dude? Must you always throw insults, offensive, derogatory adjectives? Now, I know my portion is coming
but the illiterate coach can insult an entire continent of black people? You people are really programed .... my goodness. Your beef should be with that lost immigrant in the UK calling himself coach

Cheers.
I have a track record on this forum on this forum for calling out racism and incidents where non-Africans insult or disparage Africans or African institutions.

You, on the other hand, have a track record of stupidly and banality. On the rare occasions I've found myself agreeing with your posts I will immediately take the opposite position just to distance myself from you.
The only record you have on this forum is hiding behind your facelesness to be insulting and abusive. You are an unrepentant coward. I hope that one day, you and I will meet face to face and we’ll see if you have the guts to be as verbally abusive as you are on a faceless forum❗️


Cheers.
mehn i would love to watch this fight, man go tanda for corner with one massive turkey , watching two grown men panting and throwing air punches left and right with no sense of aiming coordination :biggrin:

He's not calling AFCON a little tournament. You need to understand the context of the conversation which is about international breaks and it being a disruption. It's matter of speak of the English language. It's like saying "oh yea, and don't forget about this as well..." If you don't understand the context of the word little here, I can't help you o.

It's sarcasm. The question was whether Klopp considered it a positive there'd be no more internationals until March. Klopp reminded the reporter there's still this little tournament in Africa that the reporter had forgotten about.

Also, Klopp has spoken positively about AFCON in the past.

But if people want to cry racism and see insults at every corner that's fine for them.


Exactly. Context is everything except you have a preconceived agenda...
Form is temporary; Class is Permanent!
Liverpool, European Champions 2005.

We watched this very boring video, 500 times, of Sacchi doing defensive drills, using sticks and without the ball, with Maldini, Baresi and Albertini. We used to think before then that if the other players are better, you have to lose. After that we learned anything is possible – you can beat better teams by using tactics." Jurgen Klopp

...why 'little', why not big tournament? Is AFCON not big deal to us Africans? Is it insignificant to Africans?

The black man is truly cursed! I have never seen a race that will love another race so passionately, more than he loves himself. Tufiakwa! There is nothing Klopp would have said that would have offended this chap! Even if he insults his entire lineage, the chap will rationalize it and blame yourself :rotf: :rotf: :rotf: :rotf: :rotf: O ma se o!

Asians and hispanics do not behave like this. I dont know why the black man would rather die than go against his master. :oops:

how did he put him in his place? by stating hes not a native speaker but was comfortable enough to use 'irony' then tells the hero journalist he is in the wrong for taking him at his word.

if thats it then, he really got him

Klopp fudged up the "little" adjective and should have spoken in vernacular :mrgreen: which would have been translated to better convey his meaning.

No racism involved here. This is a complete non-issue. Oga Danfo wetin Oyinbo do you? :lol: :lol:

You explained it much better than I did above. I can't believe that someone can't understand the context of the word "little" in this instance even with a limited knowledge of the English language and it's use of irony. As for that Babatunde journalist, I'm one for protecting our own, but I have heard him many times in LFC press conferences and he asks the most ridiculous questions. I actually cringe every time he asks a question and that makes me sad to say that as a fellow Nigerian.
