    Great article on Liverpool(Bar Man Utd Reference)

    http://www.liverpoolecho.co.uk/news/...ol-fc-10409932

    A journalist was blasted after saying that Liverpool FC’s kit should feature a black armband because the club goes “through so many commemorations of disasters and deaths."

    The comments, made on an Irish radio show by Irish Independent columnist Ian O’Doherty, were branded “appalling."

    Speaking on Sunday morning’s newspaper round-up on Newstalk FM , Mr O’Doherty was taking part in a debate about the wearing of poppies in the build-up to Remembrance Day services.

    He said he believed the poppy represented the “increased mawkishness of British society, and particularly in the context of football”.

    Mr O’Doherty then said: “It seems you cannot go to a match in England now without there being a minute’s silence for the grandson of the tea lady who used to work in the stadium and now she’s feeling a bit poorly.

    “I mean the joke is on Liverpool because they seem to go through so many commemorations of disasters and deaths that they should have just had a black armband just as part of their regulation kit.”

    After the presenter interrupts to point out that Liverpool did go through an “horrendous event”, Mr O’Doherty attempted to justify his comments by saying that, as a Manchester United fan, he “is not going to pass on the opportunity to have a go at them [Liverpool]”.

    A listener told the ECHO: "As a Liverpool fan of over forty years I was angered by these comments about Liverpool’s grieving of Hillsborough.

    “I don’t think the journalist in question should simply be allowed to mock so openly the families of the 96, the club, its fans and the annual commemeration of the tragedy.

    “The comments are nothing short of appalling.”

    Mr O’Doherty has been approached for comment.

    Seems to be the only journalist about that is prepared to tell it as it is about them.

    Filthy Scouse scum
    Is there anything more tedious than a Scouser? The most obnoxious city in Europe is also the most smug, self-congratulatory and paranoid - actually, it's a bit like Cork with even more annoying accents.

    But after the recent debacle in Greece, it seems like their famous fans are finally getting their comeuppance.

    After complaining that the Greek police were heavy handed and that UEFA were picking on them, the sport's governing body have issued a dossier detailing the misbehaviour of the Liverpool fans.

    As UEFA's spokesman, William Gaillard puts it: "What other set of fans steal tickets from their fellow supporters or out of the hands of children?"

    And how have Liverpool's politicians reacted to the fact that UEFA now brands their fans as the worst in Europe?

    "UEFA is dragging Liverpool's name through the mud to deflect attention from themselves," says Scouse council leader Warren Bradley. "Big governing bodies like UEFA always look for scapegoats and never accept any blame."

    Scapegoats? Refusal to accept blame? Something Scousers know all about

    That ODoherty lad is a prick of the highest order. Fact he's a so called man United fan is irrelevant. I'd treat him with the same disdain I treat all other irish Liverpool and united fans.
    I remember united fans getting upset in Milltown in the 80's when we sang the Munich song. Then they got their arses handed to them when they got a bit rowdy.

    Scouse scum
    And this is the response he should have got for such brain fade comments.

    It would have been a great moment in Irish journalism.

    It'd be a bit silly if the Indo sacked their resident braindead polemicist for writing a braindead polemic.

    You must really like Liverpool to spend all this time posting things about them for nobody to read.
