    Why do so many people hate him so?

    People often confuse hate with thinking a player is overrated or simply not worth the fees.

    He never was a 100M+ player and has made minimal impact in a team that sleepwalks to victory in 60% of their games a season.

    In reality a good player in the right system, not the kind of player that grabs games by the scruff of the neck, nor truly top level.

    Because he’s not very good, watch his highlight reel and you’ll see plenty of long range screamers but not the 400 shots between each that went miles high or wide. He turns the ball over pretty much every time he gets it.

    I know he wasn't very good at Barca or Liverpool, but how was he under Poch at Espanyol?

    To be honest, I only remember him at Inter, I was surprised the dippers were so excited by him based on his numbers there. I was amazed that Barca paid so much for him, I’m horrified that we are considering him.

    If it’s true of course.

    TalkSPORT reporting that there will be no deal as Coutinho has said he doesn’t want to go to us; he wants to stay and fight for his place at Barca.

    There appears to be a number of stories on line suggesting he is signing for the Goons

    Loan to buy? For our protection if Eriksen wants to see out his final year or if Barcelona have done to him what Liverpool did to Robbie Keane

    Well, if you thought he wasn’t very good at Liverpool he was a disaster under mopo.

    42 goals in 151 games and 35 assists is pretty good

    I meant their excitement when they signed him based on his numbers at Inter

    Yeah all 16 games that he played, really how can scoring 5 goals in 16 games be anything other than a disaster.

    Yeah, he put up decent stats at Liverpool. To be honest 21 goals in 75 games in Barca teams with Messi and Suarez isn't too shabby either. I'm guessing bindipper bias clouded their view of him.
