    "Scousers from Stradbally, Reds from Rathgormack and Cappoquin Koppites"

    Excellent, hilarious article on We Play On Fridays on Liverpools friendly appearance against Waterford.

    http://weplayonfridays.com/liverpool...-match-report/

    A banner outside the RSC proclaimed the fans creed ‘Don’t Buy The Sun’ – a reference not to former Manchester City full back Sun Jihai, but a direction advising fans to boycott Rupert Murdoch’s Sun newspaper and instead use their money to subscribe to Rupert Murdoch’s Sky Sports with every HD, 3D and pay-per-view add-on.
    THE SEI.

    Very well written and funny. I love Pat's as much as any fan but the holier-than-thou inverted snobbery of some LOI supporters gets my goat

    Couldnt agree more RVP. Its as narrow minded as saying all LOI is shite, without having watched a game. Leave them at it.

    Fuck them. Anyone who says they won't go to a game because of an article on the Internet is either a) someone who had no intention of going to a game or b) a total fucking arsehole

    They should be allowed hang whatever they want once its not offensive. You shouldn't be reading that rag anyway, regardless of what football team you support.

    Why? Because they pay money to go watch the team they support? Barstoolers are cunts for watching from the boozer and lads who actually go the match are cunts for going? The fucking snobbery in the LOI puts alot of people off going to watch it, articles like this one do no good.

    Your about to hate me.

    The sun ran an article about liverpool fans who stole peoples wallets whilst they lay dying or dead, bad taste at the time yes but wrong ? no. BBC confirmed dead peoples wallets were missing and relatives swore they left with them making it hard to identify bodies.

    I wouldnt buy the sun anyway but to not buy it because some cunt from liverpool had the balls to steal from the dead then whinge about it, get the fuck.

    Simply untrue. The rag themselves have acknowledged it was lies, but have never said they were wrong for printing it nor have they apologised.

    Where's the cop who was beaten up giving the kiss of life? Or the ones who were pissed on? Surely they'd have spoken or left some trace that it wasn't all made up?

    I googled 'Hillsborough Stolen Wallets' and the only source I could find sharing your opinion was..... YOU!

    Shocker.

    You're wrong.

    umm who is arguing? Liverpool fans murdered their own and stole their wallets then blamed the sun and the police on everything.

    They did apologise albeit feebly when Wayne Rooney was getting flak for selling excerpts from his life (at 21) story, don't see the point of the don't buy the sun campaign as Kelvin Mackenzie was the only one at the paper who wanted the story printed and was always public enemy no.1

    The campaign started straight after the story appeared. It demanded an apology from the paper, which in spite of the attempt you mentioned, it never has. In time McKenzie has left but I suppose it'd be harder to shift it and say 'lets boycott McKenzie'.

    To alot of people the S*n is a symbol of the wrongs of that day and I imagine the boycott will continue long into the future
