Would you knowingly invoke the wrath of this man, Djibril Cisse?
You know you’re unlucky when, amidst the millions and millions of tweets that flood twitter’s stream every day, the person at whom you’re directing abuse happens to spot the derogatory comment you’ve posted about them.
And you must have broken a mirror, walked beneath a ladder and kicked a black cat up its scrawny ass if your tweet happened to be directed at and found by a Mohican-inspired Ivorian.
Especially one who looks like he wouldn’t think twice about bringing that thick strip of bright hair crashing down onto your nose if you looked at him with anything other than adulation.
But that’s precisely the position one QPR fan finds himself in after questioning the French European Cup winner’s accuracy by claiming on Twitter that Djibril Cisse
…couldn’t hit a cow’s arse with a banjo.”
On current form, whether you agree with the QPR striker’s stance on offering the tweeting fan the opportunity to bring that comment down to the training ground and explain it or not, said fan has a point.
Djibril Cisse and QPR’s plight not helped by wins for fellow strugglers
Struggling Southampton were amongst a clutch of Premier League strugglers who upset the apple cart this weekend.
Whilst they were winning 3-1 in emphatic style at QPR, the catalyst for the fan’s outburst, Reading picked up their first win of the season at home to an in-form Everton.
Not two hours following the final whistle at Loftus Road, Sunderland picked up only their second victory of the 2012/13 campaign away at Fulham in the late kick-off, replicating Southampton’s 1-3 away win scoreline at Craven Cottage.
Djibril Cisse was clearly upset by the comments. Despite the money QPR have invested over the last four or five seasons, they cannot buy a win this season, having drawn four and lost the other eight of their opening Premier League matches to date.
The London soccer team are marooned at the foot of the Premier League, already five points off safety and even then only by virtue of goal difference.
With almost a third of the season gone, the alarm bells at Loftus Road must already be ringing. It won’t be long before Mark Hughes gets his overdue ‘vote of confidence’ from the board, I’m sure.
It would be worth a reporter hanging around the Imperial College Training facility this week.
In Djibril Cisse’s tweet, which is no longer online and may well have been requested taken down by QPR staff (whether they agreed with the fan’s sentiment or not), he gave the fan his entire training schedule this week, tweeting:
When u feel like talking to me face to face just come. monday tuesday thirsday [sic] or Friday.”
Obviously, Cisse is taking Wednesday off to have that infamous strip of Mohawk re-dyed sky blue in time for QPR’s trip to Old Trafford on Saturday afternoon.
Looks like they’ll still be on four points Saturday night, then…
…if you’re a fan of the man himself – and to be fair, he’s had some great footballing moments – here’s a video of Djibril Cisse in goal-scoring action.
- Should Cisse have invited his critical fan to come to his training session?
- Or is the love affair between Cisse & the QPR faithful on its last legs?
