Leeds, QPR and Liverpool in tussle to sign free agent Hubris


The January window may have slammed shut for contracted players, but Leeds, QPR and Liverpool are in a titanic struggle to lay claim to free agent Hubris. All three clubs are jockeying to be in the box seat for the highly gifted Greek, whose striking abilities are said to be awesome.

In ordinary circumstances, Liverpool would be considered clear favourites to lay claim to Hubris. They are, after all, a free spending club with a massive history and  a sense of their own importance and grievances beyond compare. With Benitez in charge, Hubris would surely be Anfield bound in a trice, but with the more modest Brendan Rodgers at the controls and Liverpool recently humbled at Oldham and struggling in the wake of hard up neighbours Everton, QPR and Leeds might just be in with a shout.

QPR are, of course, chucking money around in transfer fees and wages like there is no tomorrow. And after the capture of Remy and Samba, for a combined fee of over £20m, Hubris may well fancy joining 'Arry's bunch of mercenaries. If you listen to the QPR fans, Mittal will keep fuelling Tony's plaything until the Premiership title has been secured; and Hubris would almost certainly like a bite of that. Six points adrift of safety with just 13 games to be played after God knows how many millions have been spent? It's actually the sort of position Hubris might fancy; but then old QPR boss and reigning Big Gob Neil Warnock may have something to say about that.

Combine Warnock with the stature of Leeds and their unrivalled fans, and you surely have a tempting package for the Greek. True Leeds are in the Championship, adrift of the promotion chasing pack, don't own their own ground or training field and are owned by an Arab bank that appears to be built on sand, but the fans would welcome Hubris with open arms and make him feel like a king. Word on the ground suggests that GFH Capital kept their powder dry in January with a view to landing Hubris so don't be surprised if the Greek finally settles on Elland Road on a package that not even Liverpool and QPR were prepared to match.

One thing's for sure, Hubris would be a fitting addition to all three clubs and it will be fascinating to see who he eventually settles upon. To be honest, I have no preference, may the most deserving club win!

  18. Hubris (pron.: /ˈhjuːbrɪs/), also hybris, from ancient Greek ὕβρις, means extreme pride or arrogance. Hubris often indicates a loss of contact with reality and an overestimation of one's own competence or capabilities, especially when the person exhibiting it is in a position of power.
    The adjectival form of hubris is "hubristic".

    ReplyDelete
  19. Well according to armchair hammer the Russian prostitute he visits, a Miss Onya Bakyabitch tells him west ham are trying to solve their goal drought by signing a Bulgarian striker called Popalotin, they have a good chance of getting him too as Leeds aren't in for him.

  24. People this is clearly a joke article, Hubris is a Greek word that means you think you're better than everyone else and can do better than everyone else. He's saying that Liverpool, QPR and Leeds fans all think we're better than everyone else and we compete to be the most Hubristic. That's why you cant find a top striker called Hubris. Well done HF very clever, unfortunately too clever for most people on here it seems.

    ReplyDelete
  25. We already had Hubris. it was a two headed beast - one a widdly diddly irishman who led us up the garden path and the other a gilt edged twat who near bankrup....oh never mind. I actually heard we were trying to sign Achilles ... from Napoli. Hang on - I thing we got him already too. King of the hoofballs.

    ReplyDelete
  26. When you look at the definition of the word you will come to the conclusion that the author of this article is taking the piss out of Liverpool, QPR and Leeds as being full of themselves. Here's the definition:

    Hubris (pron.: /ˈhjuːbrɪs/), also hybris, from ancient Greek ὕβρις, means extreme pride or arrogance. Hubris often indicates a loss of contact with reality and an overestimation of one's own competence or capabilities, especially when the person exhibiting it is in a position of power.

    So I guess you won't find anything on the "player" no matter how much you look.

  27. Wow you do have a lot of spare time don't you... Hubris means arrogance in greek, this player does not exist

    ReplyDelete
  28. Are you thick? Hubris doesn't exist. He's taking the p!ss! It more or less means pride or arrogance, like in a Greek tragedy. "Overbearing pride or presumption; arrogance"
    This guy is obsessed. Why he is interested in my club, a middle of the table Championship club at that, is beyond me. Seriously the majority of Leeds fans know we are rubbish with no ambition, hence the dwindling crowds at home. How he can call that arrogant? It's despair.
    Most realistic fans are aware that we are no longer a big club. How can we be, when we have been out of the Prem now for 8 years and clubs such as Naarrwich take your best players with barely a murmur from us and we replace them (excluding Morison) with nothing?
    However, we have a massive fan base still, and have the potential to be big again. If we played players in their correct positions that is, get rid of Warnock, and the clowns running the club. Or if they are to stay on, then invest in some decent players - it's not rocket science. If we ever do get back to the Prem though, one thing is clear -we will be bigger than West Ham. Oh go on then....we still are....

    ReplyDelete
  29. Wow, people actually think Hubris is a real person. Google the meaning of hubris people...

    Westhamfan, you are a very confused young man. I note you no longer have your email address or name on the site anymore. Good to see the abuse you've got has got to you.

Yes, contary to what you say, it does take you longer than what you make out it does to maintain this quantity of posts.You take time to do your homework even though its not always right,you come up with witty ingeniuos connections/links to LUFC,and other clubs.You must spend endless time digging up pictures off of the web yo use and thinking of 'funny' headings.Don't tell me you do it quickly because that is utter bollocks! A lot of time on your own, over that goat head soup to continually produce this stuff! It takes dedication energy effort and obsession for what? To get humiliated by my fellow LUFC fans. Why???

  59. HUBRIS is a Greek word meaning "arrogant" or "thinking you're better than you are". Don't you Leeds fans realise that this "Hammers fan" is winding you all up, just as he does on a host of other clubs' sites, including QPR, Middlesbrough, Chelsea, Watford etc.

    Their fans also call him "knob, twat, wanker etc.", so we're not very creative.

    Another point. The one whose sister works at the club. Believe me, employees at LUFC are the last to know what's going on!

I mean what a monumental schoolboy error, reacting the way you did. Anyone with half a brain would've kept quiet and refused point blank to respond to Warnocks rejection of west ham,then came the petty responses yesterday after Diego Noble,Lionel jarvis and co manage a 1-0 v Mighty Swansea. You were wound up before we finished you off and the hubris thing,that's just whoopee cushion level. It smacks of someone desperately trying to catch up. The Warnock post was put up on both your sites in the hope you got some back up and i have to say that whoever did back you up shouldn't have bothered as they just dug you in deeper.
