Lucas Neill's lucky escape after breaking Jamie Carragher's leg

By Jamie Carragher 4/09/2008

Lucas Neill

When my leg was broken in an horrific tackle by Lucas Neill in September 2003, my mates were ready to hunt him down if I gave the go-ahead.

A few weeks later I received a phone call. "You won't believe this, Jay.

We're in the Trafford Centre and Lucas Neill is walking straight towards us. What do you reckon?"

Did I really want Neill to take a crack? "There's only one problem,"

added the voice. "Little Davey Thommo is with him."

That was that. I could hardly let one of my best mates, David Thompson, now a Blackburn player, become a witness to an assault. Besides he'd have recognised the attackers. The impromptu mission was aborted and I sent a text to Thommo telling him Neill should give him a hug of thanks.

As word got back to Blackburn about the near miss, or should that be hit, their coach Terry Darracott, a Scouser, appealed to one of my friends to call the boys off. I agreed.

I'm truely lost for words ;)

What a c*nt!

Someone who can't spell? AS in TruEly instead of TRULY? Glass Houses/Stones?

No. I just find it ironic that your sub-title says "He can't spell" then you go on to prove that you're not that hot at spelling either. Hence my comment about glass houses and stones.

yeah i got the message..

i take it i failed the test then ;)

Why does every half successful footballer in England publish biographies? Particularly that early in their carreers?

I remember here they accuse Oliver Kahn as arrogant when he brought out his, but by then he had played well over 15 years on top level. For people like Rooney or Carragher publishing biographies is ridiculous.

On talksh*te last night Durham was laying into him again for stating in his book that his heart was never in it when he played for England (or words to that effect), and that England were never that high in his priorities. Just as well hardly any England manager got round to picking him, which prompted his toy-throwing retirement the other year.

Caravan on Rigobert Song:

'He strolled off to his French speaking friends and began talking to them. I could see him pointing towards me while everyone was grinning. It was clear what he was saying and the rage inside me simmered.

'Later, Song walked on to the training pitch with a smile on his face. He was limping off it with a grimace an hour later. The first chance I got, I did him. Never have I hunted down a 50-50 tackle with greater appetite

"You're not f***ing laughing now are you, you soft t**t?" I said as he hobbled away.

'Did I care he had a knock? No way. I don't remember him or anyone else in the squad for that matter trying to take the p*ss out of my ability again.'

And more from Caravan

'I've got two brothers who find it hard to work in Liverpool in this Capital of Culture year. One of the reasons is we've made it too easy for foreigners to come here and take the jobs.'

Look around the Prem you twat!!

I am honestly shocked. I know he's a horrible bloke and he is completely incoherent in interviews, but to order an assault but stop it ONLY BECAUSE YOUR FRIEND WAS THERE?! He should be prosecuted for that. If that was said by Lampard or JT in their book, would they've been prosecuted? You can bet your life they would've.

This really comes as a surprise personally. I had heard Carragher was an amiable guy off the pitch. This is shocking. He sounds like Barton's cellmate

Thank god he quit playing for England. Dont even want to imagine what he might do if pushed during an international. I think he fancies himself Roy Keane or something. Except Roy Keane was built like a tank and Jaime Carragher looks like the midget version of Crouch

Keane on taking revenge with that horror tackle:

"After Keane suffered a season-ending knee injury while trying to trip up Alf Inge Halaand in September 1997, the Irishman stewed for three years before exacting his revenge in the Manchester derby. "I'd waited long enough. I f**king hit him hard. The ball was there (I think). Take that you c**t," he recalled in his autobiography in 2002. "And don't ever stand over me again sneering about fake injuries. And tell your pal [David] Wetherall there's some for him as well. I didn't wait for Mr Elleray to show the red card. I turned and walked to the dressing room."

"Even in the dressing room afterwards, I had no remorse. My attitude was, f**k him. What goes around comes around. He got his just rewards. He f**ked me over and my attitude is an eye for an eye."

- Talking about Alf Inge Haaland tackle, Observer Sport Monthly Magazine

Keane, 31, was banned five games and fined a record £150,000 after being found guilty on two counts of misconduct that brought disrepute to the game of soccer. Not just for wrecking Halaand's knee but for bragging about it without remorse.

Looks like Carjacker will be missing for a few games, then.

On the Rigobert Song incident I actually wonder if the FA could do anything (should they actually want to) - after all it was something that happened in training and thus do they actually have any jurisdiction over that?

Also note that it states '50-50' tackle (whether it was os wasn't is another isue) whereas Keane basically admits it was a deliberate attempt to injure whilst committing a foul.

There's no real chance of the FA punishing Carjacker, although they could ban him from representing England for the next 10 years, I suppose.

But the similarities are pretty obvious, as he says: "The first chance I got, I did him." "'Did I care he had a knock? No way." As well as taunting the injured player ""You're not f***ing laughing now are you, you soft t**t?". And the player was black (I add, mischievously), so the FA could play their anti-racist card.

Seems like team spirit was fantastic at Anfield. Echoes of Joey Barton at Man Citeh. Scousers, eh?
