Is El-Hadji Diouf actually any good?

Diouf gets arrested for not being very nice (not really)


Following his delightful “F*** you and f*** your leg” rant at  Jamie Mackie after the QPR player had BROKEN HIS LEG, the debate is still raging as to whether El-Hadji Diouf is worse than Hitler or just a slightly more unpleasant Chairman Mao. However, there is a more pressing question The Spoiler wants answered…

Is El-Hadji Diouf actually any good at football?

It’s almost universally agreed that Diouf is one of the more dislikeable characters in a footballing world hardly brimming with bloody lovely chaps. But amidst all the spitting and swearing, Diouf does actually kick footballs and stuff – for Blackburn Rovers no less.

He came to England as a striker for Liverpool before scoring six goals in two seasons for the Reds. He’s since plied his trade with Bolton and Sunderland, before moving to Rovers in 2009. He’s now a winger-type player who spends his time doing (it seems) not very much – sort of a poor man’s Dirk Kuyt.

Or is that just us? Is he any good? Help The Spoiler make up its mind with a little comment below…

    Let’s put it this way. He gets very well paid and gets to kick a ball about on a saturday.
    How does your job compare?

    I have to admit that I am an absolute ****!

    MARCUS you miss the point.

    No one denies he is grossly overpaid along with every other and so lucky to be the vile little man.

    Is he any good?

    FAT ARSE, you are entitled to your opinion. However, it appears that it is you that is missing my point.
    He has been employed as a Premiership footballer by professionally qualified football Managers. This would seem to indicate that, in their PROFESSIONAL opinions, he must be good at football? Your unqualified and unprofessional opinion of his abilities count for f#*k all in the greater scheme of things!

    he is a cunt

  • marcus aurelius // January 11, 2011 at 5:15 pm

    I think you will find that is not an accurate assessment of his footballing abilities?

    Marcus Aurelius seems like a bigger c*nt than Diouf

    He’s not any good but there are always people with more money than brains in football.

    Besides, its not like anybody in the world cares… especiallly anyone playing at Sunderland, Bolton and Blackburn.

    Football fans who like skilled football, techniques and tactics would rather eat their own foot than have to watch that garbage.
    Since Diouf is both a garbage player and person, it makes sense he played there.

    I see a future for him at Stoke next.

    Diouf is a big cunt and i hope he suffers a bad injury in the near future.And all them pricks who keep speaking up for him are tossers.

    Well at least he does more with is money for deprived children than any other footballer .. the DIOUFY FOUNDATION is proof that he is a better human being than those who jump on the media circus think.. Yes he does like Barton Bower Rooney have anger issues .. is he good as a footballer well PELE rates him as one of the best 125 alive and I would think his oppinion is better than those who have only seen Adel of QPR..

  • marcus aurelius // January 11, 2011 at 9:11 pm

    Aha! At last. Someone who has done a little research into the subject in question before spewing forth the very same vindictive rants that their object of hatred has been charged with? Think about it!

  • BlackburnBloke // January 11, 2011 at 10:34 pm

    Adel Taarabt has more skill & footballing ability in his little finger, than E.H.Diouf…

    I’m afraid, that is a FACT!

    Diouf = average
    Taarabt = class

    I hate Mr El-Hadji Diouf, he’ s killer.

  • OZTHEMAN // January 12, 2011 at 10:24 am

    Diouf did not break Makie’s leg.. Makie went for Givets leg as the ball was left of Givet .. he must have thought that running into someone standing the standing player should come worse off..Unfortunately the perpetrator Makie came off worse and all his manager was trying to attempt is to diversify the attention that the victim was really the villain.. and he played into the reputation game..

    I’ve got to admit, it was an extremely dangerous tackle on the Blackburn player and some might say that it was this that caused EHJ’s reaction. It in no way condones his reaction but MAY help to explain it?
    Whether EHJ is ‘any good at football’ appears to be somewhat secondary to this thread now tho’?

    what I have to say is:

    Don’t you wish you played in the Premierleague? Guess what.
