Liverpool fans burn the American flag

From the Telegraph:

Liverpool supporters turned their ire on the club’s managing director Christian Purslow on Thursday night as more than 500 demonstrated at Anfield, calling for his dismissal and burning American flags, a direct message to his employers Tom Hicks and George Gillett.

Stay classy Liverpool fans.  Stay classy.

  1. This was the last straw for me. Today, I cancelled my memberships, and drove all my shirts to the ebay store after work.

    Heysel, Athens, home robberies, xenophobia… it is just too much. If the club is about the fans, then I no longer can be a part of this club.

    What these “supporters” have never figured out is that their behavior is the reason Liverpool FC can’t attract world-class, non-British talent. They have been relegated to paying over-the-odds for good players with up-side, and the vast majority of those signings have gone bust.

    This is especially devastating for LIverpool, since the club was always going to have three strikes against it from jump-street (horrible weather, below average looking women, and a 60% tax rate).

    I hope these hooligans get the club. It will be hilarious when they drop down the League Championship.
