Hi Ed2

Is it true Nunez is unhappy and looking to leave this summer?

{Ed002's Note - Darwin Nunes (S) I am not aware of plans to replace him but clearly he is making a fuss about social media. I am not aware of abuse - if there is it is terrible.}

ED002 - I couldn’t agree more. It’s unbelievable that he’s getting abused on social media if indeed it’s true.
I know he’s had a couple of seasons but the more pressure is put on him the bigger the impact playing. He’s rushing things.
Whatever happened to YNWA.

I don't understand the abuse, ok his finishing isn't great but he puts in 100% effort everytime he pulls on the Jersey. all brave keyboard warriors that wouldn't dare say a word to him face to face . cowards.

I feel for Darwin. The abuse is unacceptable, but I wouldn't advise the way he is handling it either. If he is a guy that doesn't like to be in the spotlight, drawing attention to himself is going to bring on exactly what he would prefer to avoid.

I like him as a player, and think he has a good heart, but I'm unsure if LFC is the right club for him anymore.

Not an expert, but my experience with X and Instagram is that pretty much every pro athlete receives abuse. If you could see the amount Emma Raducanu gets in her comments, that's probably just a fraction of it.

I sometimes wonder why they don't just delete their social media. But I guess that would affect their sponsorship money.

Darwin at the very least deserves a second a season under the new manager, plenty of the ingredients for an outstanding striker are there he just needs to get it to click.

It creates a lot of exposure and additional income. Most of these guys make so much money that the additional income is rather immaterial to their quality of life, but whenever I say that I get piled on for telling people how to make a living. You'll never convince me though that it is anything other than a fool's playground.

Don’t blame Nunez for taking his social media down. Sorry but I don’t but into all this “ he earns a fortune crap” abuse is abuse no matter how much you earn.

All these key board warriors call themselves fans? Sitting there from Outer Mongolia, abusing one of our players, put my house on the fact they don’t go the game……

I’ve said it before, if I was on over 10 grand a week and part of my job relied on a being high profile then I would absolutely pay someone (an agency) to manage it for me.

I would not ever look on it myself.

Ron, don't most of them do that anyway? I was under the impression that most professional athletes had their media presence managed by "handlers" for such things?

I don’t know ArAy, I don’t actually know any personally.

If they do then they won’t know of any abuse. Doesn’t make it acceptable but does make it unlikely it’s having any affect on the player or his family or on the reasons for taking LFC related pictures down.

Nunez patience/ temperament has been in question since he arrived, and whilst abuse is unacceptable it is, as others have mentioned, inevitable.
What doesn't kill you, and all that.
I wonder if what Darwin lacks can be coached, also if he'll be granted another season to improve. 30 goal involvements is not small change, but the issue is that the misses tend to be the most important chances/ games.
