Liverpool’s scheduled encounter with Fulham was called off on account of heavy snow earlier today, leaving US watchers of the Fox Soccer Channel gazing at some inexplicably still-extant club tourney that no one likes. It’s just as well for Liverpool left back Paul Konchesky, however, whose mother, Carol made headlines Saturday for her Facebook status updates defending her son. From the Liverpool Echo :
In a post written on November 14 after Liverpool™s 2-0 defeat to Stoke, but which is today trending on Twitter, Mrs Konchesky told LFC to stop ˜living off the past™ and said her son™s side were: ˜sh*t™.
She drew sympathy from one friend who told her to ignore ˜dirty Scousers™ and ˜clueless morons™, while another said: ‘the Liverpool scum don’t know class when it hits them in the face’.
The Facebook account, which was open for all to see, was hastily taken down when news began to spread and fans sent in angry messages.
It wasn™t the first anti-Scouse sentiment to emerge from Dagenham-based Mrs Konchesky, who in an earlier post, said the family would not be moving to Liverpool with their son as ˜we don™t like the way they talk™.
