I think the media hyperbole grinds my gears more than anything else regarding Liverpool. Whenever they do something it has to be the best, most unique, special [...] ever.

I mean saw this headline this AM on the BBC:
"Liverpool 5-2 Roma: Win unlike any football I've seen before - Lawrenson"

I mean really? How limited is your perspective that this is the case? So sycophantic.

Over here in Canada we have the Toronto Maple leafs of the NHL. It's the same friggin thing. Every broadcaster, pundit, etc. is either an ex player or cheers for them and they gush over every little good detail. I actually don't hate the team or it's players, I hate the fact that they get talked about for the first 20 minutes of the 30 minute highlights show, and their fans think their shit doesn't smell.

Victim mode cranked up to 11 today. Yes itís bad what happened but itís not an unfamiliar occurrence in football is it.

Itís overshadowing a great victory.

Maybe theyíre attempting to get Roma fans banned from, Er, Roma.

The sad truth is, if they hadn't have been so intent on creating this "hostile atmosphere" as seen against City, chances are there wouldn't have been tooled up Roma fans turning up. And, as the above tweet shows, there would have been more Police resources to spread around.

I don't like making this point when a poor bloke is fighting for his life, but you reap what you sow.

Said that to someone earlier. The clubs have both rightly condemned the behaviour but when you pelt the away bus with bottles and smash some windows on it a couple of weeks earlier it's no surprise when something kicks off the next time your at home.

This is so true. Hate the Leafs. They are definitely the kopites of hockey. Luckily they lost tonight and are out.
