Gibson received so much hate from his own fans in the first hour and a half he ended up shutting down shop. The Mirror picked out some of the nasty comments he received.
“You are an abysmal excuse for a footballer,” wrote one fan. “You’re a one trick pony – a s*** one at that. What Fergie sees in you I don’t know.”
Another added: “Nothing would make me happier than if we sold you this summer. You’re probably a nice bloke, but an awful footballer.”
Man, I know our athletes get a lot of hate, but I’m not so sure it goes that far. Then again, these are the same British football fans who sucker punch their players after matches, and this is the same culture where it’s OK to run over a referee with a car after a bad call. Nevermind, maybe nobody is as crazy as soccer fan.
