    Didnt even beat the defender ffs, shot through his legs!!!! mind you, thats how his manager scored so many. Maybe hes been coaching him? Like a lot of their youngsters, the media make you dislike em with all the premature hype.

    The plural of mouse is meeces, as in "I hate you meeces to pieces".

    "Regrettable" and "Wrong" - BBC Report on Premier League Chief`s Comments - 30 June

    Richards Masters, Premier League Chief said: "What happened that night is regrettable. It was wrong. In the end, we are not in control of individuals' actions".

    It was a large `rocket` that was fired at The Liver Building. The `bird` is a symbol of Liverpool which LFC bear on their crest. Not quite the "stray" firework that some in the press reported. Clearly an act of wanton vandalism and criminal damage. £10k of damage was caused by the resultant fire which the emergency services were required to attend.

    Later the same `small minority`, whilst celebrating, stabbed their own, then attacked the police who were trying to help those injured. Another was hospitalised with serious head injuries.

    It was reported that hundreds fought pitch battles with the police throughout the early hours of Saturday morning. 34 arrests resulted, fans were injured, 3 seriously, and public services staff were assaulted during this happy gathering during Covid.

    All this was on the Friday night after the league was clinched following the spontaneous gathering outside The Kop on Thursday. It is yet another example of an `event` being planned and preventable but still allowed to happen and go ahead. A night of serious public disorder ensued.

    Afterwards, as always, some eventually say sorry but usually when forced or the outcry is so great. Has there been a comment yet from the `Spirit of Shankly` group? At the time there was scant coverage in national news and mainstream media.

    Is this yet another case of vested interests who promote and protect the club through their privileged positions in the media?

    The Mayor of Liverpool predicted last month that Covid would not be respected. LFC immediately condemned him. The `Spirit of Shankly` demanded a public apology. Yet his prescient remarks proved to be correct.

    The club have done little, and certainly not enough, to prevent this type of regrettable behaviour for decades. They come out every time with mealy mouthed comments but are they part of the problem?

    Liverpool fans are prominent in the Merseyside Police. After the attack on the City coach no arrests were made. It was pre-meditated, planned, publicised, preventable and punishable.

    This time the police had to take action as The Mayor was publicly on their case. The perception is that the fans, the club, ex players and police have shown many times in the past that they are all in it together. This is why last Friday night happened. There are rarely any repercussions for their behaviour. The media coverage is minimised or `reasons` for what happens too often when excitement gets the better of Liverpool fans, are weaved into a new narrative of explanation.

    Everyone agrees it is `regrettable`. And, so, until the next `regrettable`.

    I am old enough to remember the years preceding Heysel when Liverpool fans (and many other English fans to be fair) rampaged across Europe. There was a feeling then that a major tragedy was imminent but the warnings were ignored. I get the same feeling now.
    A small but significant section of Liverpool fans are out of control and are being encouraged by a sycophantic media and weak police service. It has been building up for the last five years or so. There was plenty of trouble during the club's recent trips to Barcelona and Madrid but hardly any of it was reported here.
    Firing industrial rockets at a building or, as seen on social media, through a crowd which includes lots of children is as bad as it gets. Throwing burning flares underneath and onto the roof of a coach full of fuel is just as reckless. LFC seem unwilling to take responsibility for anything but I believe if they don't act now we will see fatalities in the future. The police reaction has been laughable.

    Did anyone else notice Sly commentator last night jizzing constantly over the so-called world class partnership of Pogbad and Fernandes. I'm sure he keeps having to wipe his mike every few minutes! I particularly liked the bit where Pogbad won a free kick just outside the box and he says something along the lines of "Brighton now in serious trouble with the mouthwatering prospect of Rashford and Fernandes standing over the ball" A caption then appears 27 direct free kicks. 0 Goals. Fernandes then balloons it high over the bar....then says "err 28" Priceless!
