Darwin has removed liverpool content from his instagram rumour he wants out any truth?

06 May 2024 01:06:43
Still has all his LFC content up on Twitter / X, so who knows?

06 May 2024 01:27:29
After the hit pieces sanctioned by the club (perhaps Edwards? ) through Bascombe and Joyce Im not surprised by the vitriol hate that's been aimed at him online. Leaking that he was a klopp signing and basically putting him on the market for the summer. Despicable way to go about it especially when the lad needs an arm around the shoulder and support.

06 May 2024 06:19:44
@Warya: Well said mate.

06 May 2024 07:13:47
Deleted them apparently because of the abuse him and his family was receiving.

Some of our “fans” wouldn’t understand you’ll never walk alone if it was tattooed on their forehead.

06 May 2024 07:15:21
Arm around the shoulder and support? he's a grown man who earns more money in a week than you'll probably earn in ten years, get a grip he plays football but a brain surgeon, he needs to knuckle down and get on with it. That's what is wrong with this world people like you feeling sorry for footballers who have no concept of the real world, wish somebody would feel sorry for me when I'm in work and can't be arsed but still have to fit in a Full shift and do my job properly.

06 May 2024 07:28:30
I mean I kind of agree with a lot on this thread but Darwin needs composure he’s got everything else but composure.
We’ve seen him score nearly every type of goal so he’s got it all in their he just needs to slow things down fractionally and I still believe we have a 25-30 goal a season player in him . Be interesting to see if he plays a big part or bit part under slot.

06 May 2024 08:31:29
There’s lots of variation of a so called football fan in this day and age.

It’s now a world wide market and Liverpool apparently have a global following of 207 million.

If you’re only contribution is to be sat behind your keyboard giving personal abuse to players and staff not just at your club but any club. Then let’s be honest you’re not really a fan are you.

I think people need to remember football isn’t a tv show of their favourite characters. It’s there to be enjoyed. And the more you watch it in the flesh including grass roots level the more you will enjoy it.

06 May 2024 08:31:55
Bit harsh on Nunez. One thing you can say about him is that he does put in a shift. Yes he gets paid a lot but the days are long gone of it being acceptable for us to get the same abuse as he does for doing his job. Desk warriors should get behind him rather than piling in. And if the club did sanction hit pieces on him then that's a dog act. Wonder how many players will walk away rather than sign for a club that treats its staff like that?

06 May 2024 08:35:00
Darwin Nunez Y. N. W. A.

06 May 2024 08:39:32
Some people have bags and bags of self confidence, others don’t. It’s not a ‘football thing’ it is a ‘person thing’. It’s about mental health and some people don’t get it.

06 May 2024 08:51:02
Arm around him for what? 2 years is enough time to prove your worth. If its true he was a Klopp signing then he made a mistake.

06 May 2024 10:28:41
Speaking from experience, I bet most posters on here would crumble if they had to stand up and speak in front of a room of 50. Meanwhile happy to criticise fellow human beings when they play in front of tens of thousands each week and are judged by hundreds of thousands, if not millions, of people every week knowing the expectations and amounts of money involved. Talent aside, all professional footballers deserve credit for mental fortitude of dealing with that pressure, in their teenage years and 20's no less. If it's so easy, then you lot go do it.

06 May 2024 10:35:34
You would be surprised how abusive trolls online can still have an effect on even the toughest strong minded people regardless of how much money or how accomplished they are. Bully’s are bully’s. And it’s become a lot easier to be anngry since we anll got locked in for a couple years. Wasn’t it only a few months ago that he was the toast of the town? I still love the lad. Love the chaos he brings. Just a shame quite a lot of players lost form at that point.

06 May 2024 10:37:32
@Real_Life_Red, I’m not Nunez’s biggest fan but the fact is he has scored 18 goals and contributed 13 goal assists this season, so reaching for the pitchforks may not be warranted. Again, I’d say, like @Jimthered, that you have probably never been in a position of managing people and trying to get the best performance from them on a regular basis. The idea that people with low self esteem / confidence need to ‘buck up’ might earn you a fortune if you put it in a book.

06 May 2024 10:40:21
Eds - there was the article of Nunez being a Klopp signing, probably leaked by the club, and now this. Is there any suggestions of his agent doing the rounds to find a new club or the club telling his agent to look elsewhere? Do you know of any interest? Seems a bit of a weird one given there could be the departure of other forwards namely Salah, also selling the second top scorer.

{Ed002's Note - The club don't "leak" such things.}

06 May 2024 10:45:20
Would any of you swap Nunez for Joao Felix? I can just imagine Nunez in a Simeone team and Felix could be the Firmino replacement we never got. Could be a pragmatic deal that suits all parties.

{Ed002's Note - There is no interest in either player from the clubs.}

06 May 2024 10:53:41
The various hit pieces by local journos lately have been nothing short of disgusting. We don’t do that kind of thing.

06 May 2024 11:01:10
I’ve criticised his game - it’s largely fault on my part for being so emotionally invested in the team and so frustrated. I’ve drawn a line under it a few weeks ago.

Directing abuse at him or his family is just disgusting behaviour. He actually seems like a good lad, a good professional who puts all his effort into this amazing chance he’s been given.

He gets an obscene wage but he doesn’t set the market and he doesn’t shirk at all.

06 May 2024 11:03:42
Yeah but no one cares about you jimtheread.
Not in a rude way…. but you don’t get every second of your day scrutinized and opened up to the world for your job.

Pretending that money cures that is just asinine.

06 May 2024 11:20:56
"Meanwhile happy to criticise fellow human beings when they play in front of tens of thousands each week and are judged by hundreds of thousands, if not millions, of people every week knowing the expectations and amounts of money involved. "

They get paid obscene amounts of money to do that. Nuñez could retire today and never have to work a day in his life again. He CHOOSES to play in front of so many people.

06 May 2024 11:27:45
Would Nunez settle for a place in the second 11/ play Vs the weaker sides, whilst he develops his game? He is in the top 5 players, in the top 5 leagues for goals/ assists this season-which is not a walk in the park.
Perhaps he may never develop the psychological/ temperament side of his game, but he is still an asset.
I imagine that if we were to bring in a number 9, to directly challenge his place in the side, it may help push him on.

06 May 2024 11:30:10
"That's what is wrong with this world people like you feeling sorry for footballers who have no concept of the real world" - that's a hot take.

06 May 2024 11:45:15
The lad is a workhorse and always puts in 100% (as all players should wearing a Mighty Red shirt) and I genuinely like him! BUT we paid £85mill for the bloke to score a hatful of goals to win a PL title plus plus. The truth is his lack of composure means he’s missed easily over 10 absolute sitters which has cost us points and hence more silverware. He’s had plenty of time to acclimatise to the physicality and pace of the PL so how long do you give him?! ??.

06 May 2024 11:47:41
It's the social media age of clickbait, of compilation videos of worst misses and the public having access to your profile. Why footballers engage in social media is beyond me. I think its awful if so called fans have abused Darwin or any other player. this is a problem with society. you're right wdw3 that you can't tell people to buck up. However, to be an elite level sportsperson you need to be incredibly resillient. So your comparison to the average person who can't speak in front of 50 people is not really relevant. To get to the top of the game these thing need to be motivational and wood for the fire. I hope Slot is able to get Nunez to that place. However if he can't get confidence and build resilience and continues to miss chances and be offside then the top level of football is not the place for him.

06 May 2024 12:22:42
I’ll be honest I’m finding this a little far fetched.

We always say the media is click bait but now we believe them that this is Liverpool fans abusing his family on their say so.

Just looking at reality sometimes I’ll open my messenger groups in a day and there’s like over 100 messages in there. Do I read them all. Do I heck. I’ve not got time.

So now we need to believe players like Nunez who probably have thousands and thousands of messages every day, sit/ there and read through every single one and then go onto each posters account to get a background check on them to ensure who they support before telling the media.

By deleting the LFC stuff and not the actual account tells me the message is aimed at LFC and not fans. Because fans still have the exact same access to his account whoever is running it.

I imagine Klopp saying Darwin why are you late again.

Sorry gaffer i was reading my 65 thousand instagram messages ?.

06 May 2024 12:54:04
People saying that there’s keyboard warriors abusing him…. in all honesty, making the abuse personal is wrong but if you can’t handle the heat, stay out the kitchen…. in other words, don’t post anything on social media using your person accounts to post them.

06 May 2024 13:17:13
He should not be subject to abuse full stop.

But I’m not against him being sold, yesterday summed him up yet another 1 on 1 he fluffed. Nowhere near clinical enough for a title chasing side. That’s the real issue.

06 May 2024 14:40:30
No excuse for him storming down the tunnel blanking the fans. Nothing between the ears with that lad and you can't coach brains. I'll be glad to see the back of him although I wish him well in his future endeavours he's just isn't good enough. If heskey was called donkey Nunez should be called rocking horse.

06 May 2024 15:32:31
Nunez is called Captain Chaos. His name his chanted by the fans in the stadium. Possibly he has a song as well. But truth be told, has he really done enough to warrant all these?

Ours arms have long been around his shoulders but I really don't know how much longer those arms need to be there for him to start being the number 9 we all hoped we were getting when we bought him.

Nunez has not worked out so far and if he was sold this summer I wouldn't be sad even though I like him and want him to succeed here.

With all these said, he or his family should NEVER BE SUBJECT TO ABUSE no matter how much he is being paid or how many clear cut chances he misses.

06 May 2024 16:15:20
Have you ever seen anyone try so hard for the fans? He runs his socks off, gets stuck in the trolls are out cos we never won the quad, always looking for scapegoats. Its been klopp, jones szob konate matip mo Robbo the Greek Trent gakpo endo grav even read get rid of Alison . I’m sure Darwin will feel at home in that group.

06 May 2024 16:29:47
S. Dundee tried 100% and worked as hard as Nunez but that doesn’t mean he was anywhere near good enough. Nunez just doesn’t have the necessary composure or intelligence to be the top level striker we need. Even Jackson has more PL. goals this season.

06 May 2024 17:52:08
Love Nunez and thought he would turn into a legendary player for us given his work rate but we can’t risk another season of him misfiring and costing us points so unfortunately I’d sell him now. I love Konate, a beast of a player, but he can’t play more than 3-4 games without pulling something which again costs us points so I’d sell him now. Jones, I love Jota, gives his all and so direct towards goal. His goal against Chelsea was scored because he ran with all his energy at the goal and got the lucky ricochets he deserves. But again, he is constantly injured so he should be sold. Jones, the same, starts playing well for 3-4 games, gets injured and that pushes him back to being average again so I’d sell him. Matip and Thiago gone. Prob Salah. Endo faded in last few games. Mr Slot, we need a core of first team quality CB, CM and a forward please. Should be interesting next season then.

06 May 2024 20:27:27
So Nuñez is pants and needs to go according to some 'fans' even though he's scored 18 and setup 13 this season? That's not a bad return no matter how you slice it. His problem is coaching IMO. Once coached right he'll turn into the machine i know he can be.

06 May 2024 20:57:24
If a reasonable offer comes for Nunez this summer then we should sell. Get someone more reliable. We can't keep relying on Salah as our main source of goals. He is aging. In fact, he should also be sold if a reasonable offer comes for him as well.

If Nunez is not sold, I will keep supporting him and hopes he succeeds.

06 May 2024 22:19:48
Ok Nigerred spose we sold him name a player who is better that we can get?

07 May 2024 00:24:23
I hope he isn't sold and continues to do well. That's right, continues to do well, because he has been and is. Some very short memories on here. 31 goal involvements this season so far, clearly room for improvement and people want rid. Absolute madness.

07 May 2024 02:25:31
I just don’t think you win anything against the big clubs if you squander chances.
That’s where you see the difference, you won’t get 25 chances against the big clubs, so when it counts you need to be clinical.

07 May 2024 02:33:15
i am surprised that some people here are arguing that they have a right to abuse somebody.

07 May 2024 04:14:44
As ever, get rid and then have a go at the club for not having a replacement.

Can I ask what’s so bad about Nunez being a ‘Klopp signing’ if, indeed, it is the case? Is it really a surprise to people that a manager should want a particular plater? Or are we saying it is ok but when the manager leaves the plaer (s) he wanted should leave with him? Saying the manager wanted him like it’s an accusation is quite a strange thing to do.

07 May 2024 08:21:54
He's got less prem goals than Jackson, his stats are padded by the Europa league bulk.

07 May 2024 09:03:59
People who are affected by social media need to learn there is an off button. There are some terrible trolls out there but you can stop it straight away with one finger.
No matter what anyone earns some people Need an arm around them to get the best from them. Its what Klopp does the hugs and the smiles are all about man management. But Nunez gets his name chanted by everyone in the stadium which should always be a boost to anyone's ego. he gives it his all every game so get behind hime while he has a red shirt on YNWA.

07 May 2024 22:12:14
Is there evidence it’s our supporters posting the abuse? I just ask cause I read here it’s a given but I wonder if it’s trollls pretending? Either way it’s shocking and disgusting and doesn’t sound like the fans I know especially the ones here. Just made me think it doesn’t feel possible. I actually rate Darwin. Agree he misses a lot but he’s in the position to miss which in itself shows a level of game intelligence. I appreciate his work rate and hope to see him under Slot.

07 May 2024 22:52:34
Why do you lot think he misses chances? Honestly I sometimes think people walk around with no empathy, in their own little worlds without giving a thought to how their actions affect others.

He misses chances because he is so desperate to do well for us but every time he misses a chance he knows he’ll be getting vitriolic abuse online from his own fans! How is he supposed to then perform with composure?! The pressure he is feeling must be suffocating!

He’s still a young man with only 4 years experience of playing football at a high level. His rise was meteoric so he’s not mentally prepared for the swathes of abuse he gets. You compare that to Haaland who’s been brought up by a footballer and so has been in the spotlight probably since he kicked his first football and you might start to understand.

Give the lad a break and support him. He has all the attributes to be a special player but I fear he will be forced out of the club before he gets the chance to show it.

07 May 2024 23:01:18
Exactly right Kloppiche.

I was at the match on Sunday and Richarlison was getting dogs abuse from our fans. So it’s ok to abuse opponents?
Abuse is abuse.

If you’re in this profession you’ll have supporters and you’ll have opponents. There’s no suggestion that only Liverpool fans can messsge Darwin on SM.

07 May 2024 23:35:34
I would suggest it’s easier to accept and expect abuse from other team’s fans Ron but when your own turn on you it would be much harder to brush off.

It’s like, I don’t care what most people say about me but if a friend or a member of my family criticises me it hurts so much more.

We should be protecting him from the rival fans abuse not wading in two footed to help them beat him down!

08 May 2024 07:44:44
How do we protect him from rival fans on SM?

It doesn’t make sense I’m afraid. The only way to protect him is for him to do it himself and block trolls or simply log off.

There is no way to verify which team you support on SM.

08 May 2024 13:49:40
It’s not Nunez’s fault we’re so porous in midfield and defence. It’s not his fault we seem to always give opponents a one goal head start and have an unerringly ability to give up a lead in a game cheaply, I’d suggest that if we were more capable at that end of the pitch it would take a lot of pressure off the attackers and maybe they wouldn’t snatch at chances in desperation.

08 May 2024 14:30:44
Not 100% true VV, Nunez has given goals away in his own half too - thinking FA cup.

08 May 2024 22:26:55
Ron it makes perfect sense it’s just that you don’t want to see it.

You can take criticism from rival fans, after all they are rival fans and aren’t supposed to like you but you’re own fans should be sticking up for you and giving you encouragement.

It’s very hard to ignore the criticism when it’s not only the rival fans giving it but your own fans too!

You’re right though it is difficult to verify who someone supports on social media. You for example cannot be a Liverpool fan with some of the rubbish you spout about Liverpool players.

You’re exactly the type of fan the players should be ignoring.
