Park wont sell QPR jerseys in Asia. There are a few Asian players in Europe who dont sell jerseys the way Park did at Man Utd. Man Utd was the thing that sold Park jerseys.

Its called a joke and we all do it. Dont take offence. A lot of Americans call my people drunk stupid small people who tell poems and have a pot of gold. What can I do but laugh.

The Americans do it with British stereotypes all the time, it is a laugh. No need to take it serious!

I love Dempsey but I am not a Liverpool fan so I am not going to purchase the jersey. I purchase the jersey for a team, not a player.

A fair few people do though. I know a few people that say they "support" Barcelona because of Messi and Manchester because of Rooney but dont know anything else.

Yeah but you could have fans who love Dempsey and Liverpool but never usually buy a jersey but will now because Dempsey is playing for their team and he hasn't even signed yet. Allen is a done deal I hear. Allen and Dempsey will be in a Liverpool shirt come the 1st September.
