I love all this speculation about why Cole apparently looked unhappy after scoring (primarily in the photo thread). He looked a bit embarrassed. He's not the first player to look a bit sheepish when they have scored a weak, lucky goal.
If he does hate it here, he could just leave. If he is embarrassed by earning 90k or whatever it is for warming our bench, then he could take a drop in pay.
Plus he needs more support from us? Why? I have not heard the crowd boo him, generally abuse him, or do that collective groan should he have the audacity to play a ball wrong. The same cannot be said for other players, like Lucas, who have had to hear unwarranted abuse and booing personally, whose song is only just starting to reach the masses this season at Anfield.
He may get stick on here or on phone ins but if he has any sense (which I am sure he does) he won't pay any attention. At the ground he is just another player and when he comes on he gets support. Fair enough, people don't wank over him like they do other new signings, but there has been indifference shown to countless players over the years and they have just got on with it.
I remember signing Ziege in 2000 (?) and instantly he had a song you would hear week in, week out. Yet there was Carragher, 3 or 4 years in still without any real acknowledgement from the crowd, never mind a song! Look how their two careers at the club have differed. Ziege played maybe 35 games?
