Liverpool’s managing director Ian Ayre has offered a full written apology to a football blogger by the name of Sean Cummins, who was on the smelly end of what Ayre called the ‘inappropriate’ conduct of the club’s communications director, Jen Chang.

Cummins, the man behind the Twitter account of spoof journalist Duncan Jenkins, came to the attention of Chang after making a few educated guesses, which he dressed up as ‘inside information’ (it was all based on little more than second-hand tittle-tattle he’d picked up on internet message boards and the like) about Liverpool’s summer transfer targets that came to fruition.

    from the blog, it seems that chang was bluffing all along , i mean the things he said were a little crazy

    Out of his depth…god only knows how much he gets paid…worse value than Andy Carroll…get rid quick

    Wow, Cheng should probably be fired for this.
