Subject: RE: BS: The Coronation
I watched Liverpool beating Brentford this afternoon (on Now TV I hasten to add!). The Premier League had asked clubs to play God Save the King at the start of matches. Well it was played at Anfield but you couldn't hear a single bit of it as the fans booed and chanted "Liverpool, Liverpool" all the way through, followed by a mighty rendition of You'll Never Walk Alone. Liverpool, a great city shat on from on high by Thatcher, then demonised by the right-wing (royalist) press as they fought for thirty years for justice after Hillsborough. Had I been in that crowd I would have booed and chanted as loud as anybody. Maybe it takes a football crowd to see through all the dismal bullshit we've been subjected to for the last week. Well all power to football crowds say I!
