5. Graham Turner, former Hereford manager.

What on earth did Turner do? I know why he's in my hate list but I do have to ask.

How often, on average per week let's say, do you think Jamie Redknapp accidentally mis-pronounces his wife's name as 'Wer-leeze'? I reckon at least a dozen times.

Trying to think on, but having a block. Was Wenger the first of the foreign managers to come over and manage in the Premier League?

Probably having a mental block but wasn' the esteemed Dr. Jozef Venglos at Villa not the first.

Probably not since the divorce.

Wow, I genuinely didn't know that. Took her long enough.

Yeah, Venglos came to mind straight away but that was pre-PL. Ardiles was the first foreign manager. Gullit was just before Wenger too as player/manager at Chelsea.

It goes back to when Exeter were in the Conference and in a lot of debt (see number 3 on my list). 

We went into administration and the Conference wanted to dock us points, as happened in the league. However, it wasn't in their rules, so we contested it. 

The Conference wanted all the other clubs to stick a sum of money into a pot to pay their legal fees, which most couldn't afford. They brought in a new rule, but too late to hit us with a points deduction. 

When asked what he thought about it, Turner said 'I don't know why they're fighting against the deduction do much, they'll be out of business by the end of the season.'

And then we drew Man Utd in the Cup, wiped our debts out and a hearty middle finger to Turner. 

Here you go...

The whole Liverpool fans being entitled thing confuses me, so I assume it's something that was dog rough in the nineties when past glories were just in the rear view mirror. Because today it just seems like the sort of footballing idiom other people go on about way, way more than us. All the banners with 'kings of Europe' and shit on them is just tantamount to creating a massive atmosphere inside Anfield, and that's the real point of contention that riles people up. 

Captain Liverpool to the rescue, I know, but we've got so many better reasons to be hated.

Forgive my hubris, I'll gladly take 'your team is likable'. We've seen some dark years.
