"There's lots of different cultures at Liverpool these days and not everyone finds the things Jamie does funny." Revealed Michael Owen. "His flatulence, for instance. A few of us laugh but a few of the foreign players will just....well, growl."

A club insider agreed saying: "The Jamie thing shows the divide in the club perfectly. Whenever Jamie lets off the British lads have a laugh about it -but not the people from France and Africa. They think it is crude and childish. Having Jamie let rip all the time did not help team spirit."
