There's no irony in that post whatsoever, Geoff. You should perhaps look up what that means. I haven't ONCE, in this thread or any other on Carroll, dismissed anyone's opinion on him. Personally I think people having an opinion actually makes the forum, and they don't actually deserve to have everything they say pounced upon over and over again just because they have a differing view.
Your post above is the first time for quite a while that you've even bothered to discuss Andy Carroll's pros and cons. Every single other post in here is to insult someone for having a different opinion to your own. Go ahead and look back through the last 5-6 pages if you don't want to take my word for it, you've done nothing but insult people for their opinion, and I just don't get what that adds to any discussion.
If anyone pulls you up on it then you go in to full on insult mode instead of arguing your case. You say that I should just ignore you, and I'm happy to do so most of the time, but in a thread like this you are quoted anyway, so I'll see it in the conversation. Interestingly, you've told the forum that you've blocked ME in your profile a few weeks back, but you still keep responding, so you can't really suggest that I ignore you if you're not doing the same, can you?
I'm just sick to death of people trying to force a divide between fans of the same club. Criticising their support, suggesting people aren't true fans if they have something to say on a certain player, making arguments where there doesn't need to be one. Every time I've replied to you I've been courteous, apart from a few pages ago where you reacted to a genuine question like a child. I haven't questioned your support of the club, I haven't chucked a snide dig in every other line, so I don't get why you constantly do this. There are a few people on here who really do cause arguments all the time and can't let things go, and that to me is not what makes a fanbase, it's what divides one.
