Can't blame the whole of the SOS for what happened in that vid though.
Not everyone present were members, some tickets were on sale on the doors for Liverpool fans who wanted to attend who weren't members.
As always there will be a few after a days drinking who end up singing naughty songs, still happens at boozers, coaches etc at away games. You know the mentality!
I personally, wouldn't slag the whole of the Union and what they tried to achieve over nobheads on a youtube vid.
Funny how it's taken virtually three weeks for someone to stick it up on you tube, for people to start complaining and from what I hear a shitload of e-mails from Evertonians to the Echo for them to finally do a piece about it.
As Liverpool fans we should be sticking together on this rather than getting all preachy and trying to pick holes.
It happened at an SOS event, for which they've apologised, can't that be accepted?
To be honest with you mate I've never agreed with the whole SOS idea anyway for various reasons, so maybe I'm slightly more biased to "pick holes" in their actions.
I am well aware that not everybody involved with the SOS Union would have apprciated or sang/chanted along but from the short video, I didn't see too many people trying to stop it. I didn't see the person videoing it, stop their video. So although not every member of SOS was at fault for actually chanting, I can't say too many tried to put a stop to it. Maybe some did and it wasn't shown, I know somebody on another forum said they did but it's hard to prove without the evidence.
And personally no an apology isn't enough, because words mean nothing. Actions are what I'd rather see. I'd rather see those in the SOS remove any mindless idiot who was chanting along, maybe even remove those "in power" if you like from the SOS for allowing such actions. Just saying sorry doesn't cut it on this issue or any other issue in the world in my opinion. Anybody can sorry without meaning it, so I'd much prefer to see something seriously done about it than just the typical "sorry".
From what I've read on the other forum, SOS have stated they didn't even book the fella on stage. Well for somebody they didn't book, they seemed pretty happy to let him go on stage and chant along with the few in the crowd. That's why a "sorry" isn't enough.
After what this club and it's fans have gone through, the struggles, the fights, the sh*t from so many others, the Munich disaster is one thing which should bring the two football clubs of Liverpool and Manchester United closer. Incidents like this, just push us further apart and make the struggle that little bit more difficult for our own justice. A fan from another club looking at this will now just look at it and say "you don't care about the dead so maybe the stories in the papers of 89 were right. maybe you did steal and piss on the bodies." And with incidents such as this, at a place of a so called supporters group of our club, gives fans of other clubs that ammunition to hurt us with.
Sorry isn't good enough. Banishment from Anfield and any further events involving anything to do with Liverpool Football Club is the minimum these mindless idiots should get.
