Thanks for that. I hadn't seen that particular clip before and it serves to reinforce the poor policing of the incident. It seems to be on the corner by the Arkles and the turn is off the dual carriage way into the short stretch up to the ground which would make an ideal ambush position with everything being quite narrow and compressed. The police should have had a plan B with a diversion of some sort.
The whole thing does not reflect well on the fans or the police but more so on the media who did little to condemn the animals.
As far as I am aware we had already changed the planned route to get to the ground and the police released this information before the day.

Oh my word...
BBC coverage of the Women's England game versus Northern Ireland.

England win 6-0
1-0 White
2-0 White (assist Bronze)
3-0 Bronze (assist Jill Scott)
4-0 White
5-0 Non City player (assist Bronze)
6-0 Pen won by Kelly, scored by Man U player.

No mention of Man City during video highlights. Unbelievable, 4 goals, 3 assist and a pen award for City players

Only club mentioned after pen scored "Manchester United"

It is unbelievable.
I know I shouldn't be surprised but I didn't really appreciate that the hatred of us is universal, even in the Women's game when they represent their country...
8 of the 11 starters were City players (technically as we have loaned Scott out)

The media also said fuck all about the absolute joke of a tie we faced.

First leg

1. Liverpool first goal offside
2. Sterling penalty wrongly not given
3. Gabriel Jesus goal wrongly disallowed

Had the officiating been better in the first leg we could've been at 2-2, worst case 3-1 down with an away goal. Instead, we were 3-0 down.

Second leg

1. Leroy Sane goal wrongly disallowed
2. Sterling penalty wrongly not given

Had the officiating been better in the second leg, we could've been 3-3 or 3-2 down at half time.

Had the officiating been better across the first leg and first half of the second leg, we could've been 4-2 up with two away goals.

Instead at half time of the second leg, we were 3-1 down and our manager had been sent off. We had to go for bust and then there goal on the break killed the tie dead, with us needing to score 4 to win it, and having to go for it even more.

Non of this was mentioned by the media, not one article, not one comment.

this every time, I actually think this was one of the most bent games with a ref sent to do a job, at this point we were truely unbeatable.

It's noticeable how many blues are seeing these clips for the first time on here, an indication of how little coverage this appalling behaviour got at the time.

Even so once they saw the massed dickheads they could have changed tactics, route and speed. They just seemed unable to react.

Half those cunts were sticking photos up on their twitter and Facebook after the match as well.
Then, after pulling that stunt, they play the fucking innocent when Roma show up hunting scalps.
Teams from Italy have had it in for Liverpool after what happened at Heysel in 1985.

Game replayed probably or the tie awarded to Liverpool and us banned from Europe for 5 years

So much for that Police escort, they did jack shit about what was going on.

I can't believe blues haven't seen these images before? They were literally on here, in as you would expect a huge thread on the subject.

As for the latter point, they didn't want to or why would they have released the new route schedule so the wankers with bricks, bottles and flares could still do what they wanted.

If they wanted to arrest them they could have lifted them for climbing on the roofs (rooves?)of the police vehicles, dragged them off and throw them in the back and whisked away to the cells sharpish.

It was a disgrace and just as big a disgrace that nothing was really said about any of it.

We really should have just put the coach in reverse and fucked off, hopefully running 1000 of the jobless twats over into the bargain.
