The Blue 3/4 of Liverpool

Bit of a brave statement, especially here, but I think we should embrace the City of Liverpool Liver Bird(s), it belongs to the city and not one of its team's. It's not copyrighted to them lot, and seeing as "we" pretty much own the Liver Birds now *cough*, THEY can fook right off with the ownership moaning, and we should permanently paint them in Royal Blue! ;) I think that photo of the laser blued Liver Birds is going to be seen quite a lot if we beat them on Sunday.

The Blue 3/4 of Liverpool

From Wiki

In November 2008, Liverpool Football Club filed an application with the UK Intellectual Property Office to register the version of the liver bird shown on the club badge as its trademark. The deputy council leader, Flo Clucas, responded that "The Liver bird belongs to all the people of Liverpool and not one company or organisation."

Liverpool FC finally acquired a registration covering a trademark incorporating a liver bird in September 2010, after coming to an agreement with the city council. Liverpool FC obtained a trademark registration from the European trademark office and the council obtained its own registration from the UK IPO covering a trademark incorporating a liver bird. This was done to protect its use by companies in Liverpool, but also for the football club to protect itself against counterfeit products.

What a proper pisser ... So made up to see that. Hope we light the new stadium the same so you've got a royal blue glow over the Royal Blue Mersey...
They could always light candles in their extension?
