I've just logged on to Twitter, and Ryan Babel was kind enough to let me follow his tweets (I sent a follow request to him yesterday). Looking at his profile, I've just found a series of 'tweets' where he moans about how he doesn't get any games.  Here are the tweets in full:

'Hey people, I got some disappointing news, I m not travelling 2 Stoke.. The Boss left me out the squad. No explanation..'

Two hours later...

'What happend after a first good season? Scoring 10 goals, being young talent of the year, and then second and this season don't play at all?'

Immediately afterwards...

'I can tell everybody, I have never had a argue or a fight with the manager... I always kept quiet... So for me its also a question ..'

'Where did it go wrong??? .. Well obv you have people who support me and don't support me.. That's all good.. I believe in myself..'

'And one day, you will see what I m capable off, will it be at LFC or somewhere else... I havefaith...'

'And hey, I m not scared to share this with you guys.. Cause its the truth.. And there r no secrets.. !!!'

'In a football career you have ups and downs... Every player has them..'

'So the day will come def.. When I will do well everyday... ! So don't worry.. God is good, yes he is !'

I couldn't help but think...what would the great Bill Shankly think of this?

If it were up to him Babel would never play for Liverpool again.  It will be interesting to see how Rafa deals with it.

He moans about not playing at all...but he is a complete liability on the pitch.  Yes, he has talent and the ability but he doesn't channel it properly.  If he spent less time 'tweeting' and making rap music and more time on the training ground he wouldn't have anything to complain about.

That's what I think of the situation. Thoughts?

(By the way, that is Babel's real Twitter account, it has been verified, as have all celebrities' genuine Twitter pages).
