The fact that Shogun reckons when United fans sing it, it probably is in reference to Hillsborough, tells you all you need to know about that song.
Which was basically my argument about that song before I got banned. In other words, if it can be misconstrued then don't bother singing it.
On the subject of me getting banned last year. I loved the fact that I was banned till just before the derby on the 28th Jan, but then it was extended until a week or so after the match because we twatted you's 4-0. Great game that!
Ah BWS, how I've missed you.
Frankly I couldn't give a flying fuck what utd or anyone else mean when they sing it (other than those who mock the disaster need a good hiding)...when we sing it, it's NOT in relation to hillsbrough. What your fans like to imply is that IT IS in relation to hillsbrough when sung by us, even the murderers chant is about hillsborough now according to the whoppers that follow your club.
The vast vast majority of evertonians have been supportive over the years reference hillsborough, after all it effected the whole city and red & blue families alike. So I'm sure you would understand that accusing evertonians of mocking the disaster when the song could relate to countless incidents is very hard to take. If people are interpreting it that way then that's their problem...some kopites almost appear to be desperate for it to be reference to hillsborough so they can play the victims card.
One thing I did notice at the derby was when it was sung your end just laughed it off as they've always done. No mad outrage or reactions which says to me atleast most of your match going following aren't utter beuts who twist everything around to be anti-hillsborough. Far cry from the social media, internet and pub brigade which make up the vast majority of your fanbase.
