Liverpool fans are up in arms and justifiably so. Convicted drink-driver and occasional pundit Trevor Sinclair has exposed his true colours with a despicable tweet aimed at Merseyside. The former Manchester City winger tweeted saying “bin dippers we’re coming for you” after the Citizens beat Burnley. Well done! Burnley! Congratulations. The Trevor Sinclair tweet has come in for a pelting from Kopites the world over.
The offensive message is a dig at poverty in Liverpool. ‘Bin dippers’ implying that Scousers have to rummage around in the rubbish for food. Throughout the UK food banks are ubiquitous and child poverty is at a modern record high. Trevor Sinclair didn’t just insult Scousers with his tweet, he showed a disgraceful contempt for the disadvantaged everywhere.
Scousers are a proud people, he was never going to be able to get away with this one. There have been calls for him to be sacked by talkSPORT. It’s safe to say that he won’t be welcome on Merseyside any time soon.
Local hero Mike Kearney asked whether or not we’d pulled out one of our best hits when it comes to dealing with the ignorant.
Anyone found Trevor Sinclair‘s address and sent him a shitload of nappy’s yet? Absolute helmet him

This Kopite pointed out that the ‘pundit’ has a track record for not being the best bloke, he recently lost a job due to other tasteless behaviours.

Trevor Sinclair is a prick.
It was only last year that he lost his job with the BBC because he’d been drunk driving as well as racially abusing someone.
Shove your insincere apology up you’re arse you piece of shit. https://t.co/d6ewBaZRrr

One Red put the issue succinctly.
Trevor Sinclair likes laughing at impoverished families. https://t.co/e7H0hyk4ib

Another Liverpool fan made the point that this is not an issue that just exists Liverpool and the pundit should bare in mind that his own supporters are also suffering.
The bin dippers comment from Mancunians is odd. I have worked in Manchester for yrs. I literally walk past 10 homeless people in the 200m walk between the station and office.
Trevor Sinclair should know better and I’d expect talksport to take appropriate action.

Kopites will not accept his pathetic apology.
Not one Liverpool fan is buying that pathetic and insincere “apology” from Trevor Sinclair. He meant what he said. We all know it. No amount of backtracking will change things. He’s a piece of shit.

And this Red explained perfectly why we won’t be accepting it.
I don’t accept Trevor Sinclair’s apology, when you know the only reason he’s apologising is because it’s going to impact on his own career/private life. He’s certainly not apologising because a young kid might not have any food, or anywhere to sleep tonight. Selfish gobshite.
