mind you it doesn't stop me on a windy day spitting down the East Lancs road in the hope it gets carried into a Mancs face in Salford
How rude Glen lad!!
Rude?.. I changed it to spitting from something that sounded very similar!
I think when you've been through some of the games we had in the 70s and 80s there comes a time when you need to put the rivalry into perspective, I don't like Man U and in general I hope you lose every game I also had a very close friend who supported Man U and lived in Eccles and thought exactly the same about Liverpool, but not once did any argument descend into nastiness and that is how it should be not getting chased round Manchester/Liverpool by lads with Stanley knives as it was in the old days and as is also becoming the fashion again now.
I'm not proud of the fact that as a sixteen year old I stood on the Kop and with everyone else sang Munich songs its no excuse but I was young and I was a knobhead, ten years later I'm stood on the Leppings lane and now I have to watch while some Man U fans make choking gestures and sing Hillsborough songs and it destroys me every time, is it a case of what comes around goes around? I don't know but I do know now that there can be rivalry and a dislike of a club without anyone getting maimed for it.
Anyway now I have cheered every one up I would like to lay down the gauntlet Johnno and say with total optimism, look over your shoulder next year mate because you will have new challengers as the European champions are coming for your league.
Glen lad, I'm f**king glad you changed it then!!
The league needs a strong and always challenging Liverpool side - without them doing that is just unthinkable for me. But with typical Manc bravado, I'll say " bring it on"!!
I really do hope you turn Milan over later this month but to do it, you've got to get in their faces and not give 'em a moment to play. Not like we did, poncing around like we'd never seen rain before and standing off 'em admiring like. Fecking sh*te that was.
As for the sickos we both might have - I don't know how far this can go before someone sooner or later gets killed through it. In the old days, 50's and early 60's, fans stood together and good football was roundly applauded by both sets of fans. Good banter was one of the highlights of match day. Now, if you opened your mouth, someone's likely to knife you! FFS, how far down sh*t-street have we all gone lad?
I do know that the Kop elders back then kept their mouthy b***ard numpties in check - sometimes with a smack round the earhole where necessary. Similar at the Stretford End. Respect was given and tragedies would have been a total out of bounds NO-NO for any chanting. Chanting about the likes of Munich, Hillsborough (had they occurred) would have been smartly smacked down by people who loved their club for sure but who had respect for common human decency and for the great game.
