      Won't hear a bad word sad about Saint Divock. Last minute winners against Everton and Newcastle were good enough, but the Barcelona double and the nail in Spurs' coffin elevated him to sainthood.

      The only possible criticism I'll hear of him is that he needs to work on his celebrations. Picking the ball up and looking mildly confused is not the way to celebrate a ridiculous last minute winner against the Bluesh*te, although in fairness he was probably just as surprised that he scored as everyone else.

      For those who saw the Origi's banner, was it racist? For me, not so much.

      I didn’t think it was seen and heard a lot worse amongst some of my black mates playing on the same stereotype.

      It's a racist trope about black men so yes I'm afraid it is racist, but I'm not quite sure how it's mocking his manhood as some papers suggested!

      Lol... racist to say black men have big dicks, survey shows men from the Congo have the largest peckers in the world with an average 7:1 inches..

      According to that highly scientific chart! you may as well say that most South Americans have big dicks but I've never heard that said once.
      It is a racist trope, similar to saying all Italians have big noses or all Scandinavians are blonde and blue eyed etc.

      Anyway the bigger point here is that its an obscene banner to create and then display, what kind of a fu**ed up stupid mind would do that??

      I think a lot of Divock's teammates and himself might be laughing their @rses off in the dressing room after that banner.

      Still don't understand why Klopp values him before Shaq. Origi is very meh. Maybe his abilities for headers? He looks meh in tight spaces where Shaq could shine and our games revolves a lot around those tight spaces since basically all our opponents play us defensively - even City.

      Whether people think it's racist or not, it has no place as a Liverpool banner.

      This I agree with , do I think it’s racist no , was it in bad taste at a sporting arena watched by millions of course it was , bit of banter with the lads is fine , on the main stage watched by kids definitely not.

      Bad taste? Yes. I’m actually struggling to understand what point the people who made it were trying to make. Big Cajones yes but this?
      I think we need to be careful however if things like this are going to be added to the list of serious cases of racism. It was interesting that Sky claimed the racist abuse of England players continued into the 2nd half because ‘Sterling was getting booed. Well if booing Sterling is deemed racist we are in trouble every time we play Citeh.
      Racism is undoubtedly a problem but labelling every incident like this as such will only serve to trivialise the issue.

      Thank you. I've been surprised that all the media talk has been about a possible racist angle - and totally ignored a basically pornographic image displayed in a stadium full of people.

      As somebody else mentioned, what is even the point of doing it? Weird.

      In Malta, we have lots of black people and have many as my friends. We really joke about their big dicks. For me, I'm not calling them names like the N.... word or Nazi salute.

      The big dick thing originates from racism though. The only way a man of colour could get in to the porn industry was to be hung like the proverbial horse and so a myth was born.

      Of course it was racist. It's a way of bringing racism back into football grounds by dressing it up as a "compliment" (although by making his dick about 3 foot long they made it a grotesque kind of compliment). Whether the idiots who spent time making up that banner were consciously doing it with racist intentions or not, deep down anybody doing that knows they are doing something racist, and obviously find it funny, and probably exciting, to be doing that.

      Don't want that kind of moronic sh*t at our club, and hopefully they get lengthy bans.

      It's not racist. It's a stereotype. Like saying black people are quicker than white people. It's just a stereotype.

      You can differ all you want mate, the fact is that stereotypes come from racist tropes, which differentiate between white and other people based on their skin colour.

      Even the fact it's a stereotype is a reason enough to f**k it off. Look how much we from this city have had to suffer from negative stereotypes, while constantly having to listen to f**king arseholes spout "it's only a joke"

      You're arguing semantics.Do you think that banner was an appropriate way to support LFC and was a good laugh? Don't care if they were good scouse lads and took it to Madrid.F**k that sh*te right off.
