    Just a matter of time before he tears the league apart. It's not his fault so we should not have a go at him and he's going to be world class player

    You know he got us promoted single handily

    While in the real world Carbs is a fat lazy #### who rinsed our club no better then the other #### takers

    No surprise there then.

    A bloated waistline to match his bloated ego.

    All that talent wasted.

    Always thought one day he would wake up to the fact he is running out of years to impress the big clubs he craves.
    But clearly not.

    What a complete fool.

    Fat Adel

    Is still fat and been told to slim up if he wants to play in Benfica's team. Not been selected yet. Ho dear.

    Real shame as the guy with the right attitude should be performing at highest stage

    Look at someone like James Milner 1% of Adels ability but million times a better player
    Let's not get carried away. Milner is Pony! and everything with what is wrong with English football. Works his nuts off so is deemed a good player, and a trier. We love a trier in this country. His free kick the other night summed him up ability wise. How he has got gigs at Man City and now Liverpool is beyond me.

    In fairness, Warnock said himself he had to almost upset / frustrate others to do so, he just gave Adel a free reign, massaged his ego a bit and let him strut his stuff. In the Championship it worked a treat because, ability wise, he was streets ahead of anybody.

    A team like Benfica probably can't afford to take such an approach (not that the Portuguese league is great) but they have other quite high profile players that likely won't put up with a player getting such special treatment.
    And this is precisely why Taarabt will always be remembered (if at all) as a "what if" player. Expect him to turn up on one of those "forgotten footballers" or "faded footballers" Twitter accounts in a few years.

    I'd say it's a shame but it's entirely his own fault.

    Says more about Warnock than it does Adel tbh. If I was the Benfica manager i'd be getting in contact with Neil and asking him how he did it and nobody else's approach seems to work.

    Adel only has himself to blame. With the right attitude he could have been something special but unfortunately he has it all wrong. Loved him during our promotion season and scored some blinding goals but the best thing we did was offload him, just a shame we didn't do it sooner. I can only imagine how much effort Warnock had to put into keeping Adel sweet.
    Simple...tray of Krispy Kremes delivered to chez Taarrabt every day and a rub down with cocoa butter on the old stretch marks......
