Neutrals want Liverpool to win
The largest, most ludicrous myth around at this moment in time is that neutrals want Liverpool to win the league. This is ridiculous. Firstly, this myth has been mooted by pundits and press men. It has come from the likes of Jamie Carragher, Alan Hansen, Mark Lawrenson, Graeme Souness and Jamie Redknapp. Brilliant unbiased view point.
The reality is, neutrals do no want Liverpool to win the league. Many have grown up with Liverpool gloating over the last 30 years. Despite having not won the league for 23 years, their gloating is intolerable, and were they to win the league, it would only get worse. Most neutral’s can not wait until that clock ticks over to 25 years, a milestone. The neutrals certainly do not want Liverpool to win the league.
Liverpool doing it the right way
The key reason why Liverpool are ‘the neutrals favourite’ (although we have already debunked this myth) is due to them doing it the right way. They are battling against the evil forces of Russian Oligarch’s and Middle Eastern Oil men.
It seems to have been forgotten by the press however that Liverpool are owned by the Fenway Group, a conglomerate of brokers, bankers, hedge fund managers and media executives. Billionaires in their own right.
In the last accounts, Liverpool lost £50 million. Chelsea lost £49.4 million. Manchester City lost £51.6 million. And lets look at expenditure over the last 5 years:
Man City: £512m
Man Utd: £230m
Whilst they might not have spent as much as Chelsea and City, they have spent more than Arsenal and Man Utd (£100m more than Arsenal). Acting as if they have got where they are based on youth and spending little is a false statement.
So Liverpool are owned by foreign businessmen (same as Man City and Chelsea), make huge losses (same as Man City and Chelsea), yet are considered as ‘doing it the right way.’

Lets stop the Gerrard love in shall we? He is the Scouse John Terry
Liverpool fans are good sportsmanship
For some reason, the press are presenting Liverpool fans as a brilliant example of sportsmanship. That they represent the English game with aplomb. What parallel universe have I slipped into?
These Liverpool fans got English football banned from Europe for 6 years after their behaviour caused the death of 39 Juventus fans at Heysel.
These Liverpool fans robbed off their own in Istanbul. Stealing tickets, travelling with fake tickets and jibbing through the barriers to see Liverpool in the 2005 Champions League final.
These Liverpool fans repeated the trick in 2007 at the Champions League Final in Athens. Selling their own fake tickets for £1,000. Travelling in their masses without tickets causing unsafe over crowding within the police cordon’s and fan zones.
Liverpool fan’s did similar at the Emirates Stadium during the Champions League Quarter Final in 2008. Every club throughout the Premier League will have their own stories of too many Liverpool fans turning up, fake tickets, and the lack of concern many Scousers have for their own fans safety. It seems to a Scouser, it is more important to see a game of football then be an honest, upstanding citizen. Their reckless behaviour is an accident waiting to happen.
And who can forget the Michael Shield’s incident. Whilst Shields has been correctly released from a jail after the murder of a Bulgarian man before a Liverpool away game, there is a murderer out there who was happy with his own mate taking the fall. Happy someone else taking a 10 year sentence for his crime. Happy for a fellow human being to be banged up abroad whilst he sits in Liverpool, probably still going to games, without a care in the world.
These incidents are not the only ones which highlight how poor the Liverpool fans are. Whilst the world mourns those who lost their lives at Hillsborough, Liverpool fans quite happily sing and gloat about the Munich disaster.
When Alan Smith broke his leg in 2006, those kind hearted Liverpool fans threw beer cans at the ambulance, blocked its progress, and attempted to turn it over. Nice men then.
Even last week, whilst Manchester City respectful remembered those who lost their life at Hillsborough, them Scouser’s attacked a coach, bricking the windows. The coach was reported to have had a ‘Justice for the 96’ flag in its window. What respect the Liverpool fans have for their fellow fans.
Liverpool fans are certainly not good sportsmen, they are the shame of English football.
Brendan Rodgers is a genius
Brendan Rodgers is a numpty. Anyone who has watched ‘Being: Liverpool’ will know he certainly is not a genius.
Liverpool have got lucky this year, Brendan Rodgers has got lucky this year. With no European football, and being knocked out of the cups early, he has been able to keep his squad fit, and at peak condition. Fewer games has restricted injuries, and meant that the likes of Sturridge and Sterling have been able to play at the top of the game for the entire season. Let’s see how they perform next year when they have to play twice a week. Just to highlight how few games Liverpool have played further:
Manchester City: 54 games
Manchester United: 50
Clearly Everton and Liverpool have both benefited massively by playing hardly any games this season.
This is the truth about Liverpool. Do not believe the myths put out by the biased press.
