It depends if it's a principled stance or not. For example, loads of them aren't shy about working at HM's Passport Office or the Home Office in Liverpool. The city is packed with public sector jobs all operating under the 'HM' banner, because they are incapable of/unwilling to try to get private enterprise off the ground. If they hated the establishment that much then why would they happily work for the establishment?

Another thing you've got is that they've been to Wembley finals many times between the 1980s and the Klopp era and NOT booed the national anthem. It seemed to come back into fashion once they'd won the 2019 Champions League for no obvious reason other than to say "we're relevant again, how can we make ourselves the centre of attention?".

You look at crowd shots of their end and it's a diverse mix of people, most of whom probably have no connection to the city. They have fewer than 6,000 season ticket holders with a Liverpool postcode. They booed Abide With Me even though the club re-released it to mark the 33rd anniversary of Hillsborough just the other week. That's how stupid, ignorant and uninformed they are.

I could go on about respect and the ever-diminishing quality of being able to disagree with something without being a fucking wanker about it, but that'd take too long. No doubt there are many City fans who are republicans but don't boo it because they are aware that the person next to them might wish to observe it. Not everything is about me, me, me.

In my opinion therefore, booing Abide With Me and the national anthem had fuck all to do with a principled stance and everything to do with a narcissistic cult of self-centred weirdos setting out to make it all about them. Politics doesn't even begin to enter the discussion.

They have always been the same, loudmouth narcissistic shitehouses. It's all got to be about them or they whine like fuck. There is a recent video I stumbled on, that blonde haired MMA fighter who's a Liverpool fan, some scouse female fighter and Wayne Rooney. They're in a dressing room and Rooney goes in to congratulate them. The girl gives him a hug and says, "Doing it for the scousers mate"or some such tripe. They're the same wherever you go in the world. As soon as I hear that whining nasal tone I die inside and try and get myself as far away as possible from them. If trapped on a plane with them it's a living hell.

It was a porincipled stance, they believed that "Yeull vevah waulk aloan" should have been sung (by everyone in the country) instead

Every holiday I have ever been on we seem to play "avoid the scousers" you just know they will be trouble.

That my friend is a superb, succinctly written post perfectly describing their fan base to a tee.

You’ve hit the nail on the head. Whilst you get a selection of clowns like Tony Evans morphing into a professional scouse socialist ( despite spending the last 20 years taking a pay packet from whichever billionaire was willing to pay him ) - the reality is most of LFC’s support comes from fans with no connection to Merseyside. So all the faux establishment hatred is bullshit from the majority.

Spot the scouser at Wembley yesterday as it was for the semi final. All sheep following the script. I seen a group of friends I know - 30 of them - 1 scouser in the group - they have been to 2 games this season - the semi and yesterday ( and all are going to Paris ).

Enabled by the media desperate for clicks and engagement. It’s why you get bed wetters like Rob Draper tweeting ‘everybody is allowed to boo it’s free speech’ before writing the most pathetic sycophantic match report with a big dose of snide Chelsea comments.

I was In Egypt a few years back and a dipper got thrown out of his own hotel bar because they put city on instead of liverpool and he proper kicked off about it.

They're fucking animals, to a man.

Not to mention the large proportion of scousers who have been accomodated "at Her Majesty's pleasure" over the years.

I was on a plane once with a scouse woman and a teenage lad sat in front of me. The lad was fucking about all flight, jumping and banging the seat, he was sat directly in front of me. His gormless mother just let him do it. Eventually I banged the back of his seat jolting him forward. He looked back at me and I just glared at him. He curbed his behaviour a bit after that. On coming in to land the stewardess had to tell them to put on their seatbelts three times. When she finally bollocked the scrotes the woman whined, "Alright, alright!!! Don't go on" The stewardess said, "I've asked you three times now." To which the scouse scumbag screeched, " I didn't hear ya, didn't hear ya, alright!!!!" Scum.
