Poor Robbie.

We were born just days apart and he's felt like an imaginary brother. I feel protective towards him.

Reminds me of that classic story (possibly apocryphal) about McAteer when the players went out for a pizza, and the waitress asked McAteer if he'd like his pizza cutting into 4 or 8 slices, and he said "4 please, I don't think I could manage 8"

jesus, we must have had some right numpties!

my dad sat behind mcateer on a plane back in the day and told me that he was being very loud and generally acting like a gobshite . i was probably about 12 at the time and was gutted to hear it! he seems okay now though.

On the subject of former players who aren't the brightest, I'd have to say that Emre Can is right up there. Was watching a Dortmund clip with him and Julian Brandt the other day and he comes across really slow. It's in German too, so you can't even make the language excuse. NB: Not worth wasting 20 minutes watching - it's quite dull (like Can).

I like McAteer. Comes across quite well, even if not the sharpest. Could definitely believe the pizza story.

Never could bring myself to watch the depression programme though, even though I had planned to.

There was an email going round years ago detailing a load of the McAteer-isms......

Ruddock used to go on about thick McAteer was. And if Ruddock is saying that about you!??!?!?

Few examples:

- Shouting out "ONE HUNDRED ANDDDD EIGGHTTY" when he bumped into Jimmy White
- Filling out a travel visa form and in "Position" putting "Right wing back" instead of "professional footballer"
- When he locked his keys into his car, his friend asked him to get a coat hanger and they'd try to break in. Jason comes back out with a wooden hanger.

On the subject has anyone read Robbie's autobiography? No surprise that the running gag of that team was pissing in each others pints. Something about Steve Harkness shitting in Collymore's toiletry bag too if I recall correctly.

You can look his company up on companies house.

They have had the receivers in since last summer. What a nightmare though, looking through the items, that is a nice little careers worth of trophies he had there.

Article on it here too. Shocking

Tom Brewitt: Ex-Liverpool youth player admits injuring team-mate on purpose in bid for first team - https://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/football/54565938

Quote:
Tom Brewitt Ex-Liverpool youth player admits injuring team-mate on purpose in bid for first team


Former Liverpool youth team player Tom Brewitt has admitted he once injured a team-mate on purpose in a bid to win a first-team place.

During the 2015-16 season - Jurgen Klopp's first at Anfield - several of Liverpool's centre-backs were injured before an FA Cup tie against Exeter.

Brewitt believed it was "written in the stars" for him to make his debut but faced competition from Daniel Cleary.

"Whatever it took to do it, I was going to do it," said Brewitt, 23.

Speaking to the Football Journeys Podcast, the Liverpool academy product - who was released by Morecambe in the summer - added: "If that meant hurting someone or ruining a relationship I had, I was going to do it.

"I was just desperate to play for Liverpool and that's all I wanted to do."

Brewitt, who captained the Reds in the FA Youth Cup, said he got on well with Cleary, who now plays for Dundalk, but thinks he "ended the relationship".

He said he did not know Klopp was planning to play Jose Enrique at centre-back and recall Tiago Illori from his loan at Aston Villa for the January tie.

"I took the decision, it was me or him, so I went after him in training," Brewitt said. "Before Christmas and the time between Christmas and New Year, I put myself next to him in possession games, I put myself next to him in games, and I just kicked him.

"I wasn't trying to hurt him badly but I was trying to hurt him enough so he was out the way and I would play.

"It was about a week before the Exeter game and I took a bit of a heavy touch in a seven-a-side and he's come in to tackle me.

"I waited a split second too long and absolutely topped him, went over the ball, it was a bad tackle - I knew it was a bad tackle, I did it on purpose and I'm not incredibly proud of it.

"I'm not ashamed of it, either, because in my head it was me or him and I was choosing me."

He added: "There was a bit of a scuffle after it and I think he got sent in for his reaction, rightly so as his reaction was probably bang on, and I finished off the session.

"He was on crutches for the next two weeks, so it was sort of like, not mission accomplished because I think that's a bit harsh as I didn't want to hurt him, I just needed him out the way for this game."

Brewitt never made it to the Exeter game, suffering a concussion after banging his eye against a team-mate's back while going up for a header four days before.

In response to the podcast, Cleary tweeted: "Blowing out someone else's candle doesn't make yours shine any brighter comes to mind.

"Lucky to walk away from that tackle with my leg in one piece."

Ah, the poor guy...must be hundreds of players like him in that position.

If he's back in Liverpool...Should ask for trials at clubs in the area like Tranmere or Wigan
