Still think 'Hibs' fans in 70's had the biggest ..er!..'impact' than all the Scottish clubs visiting Anfield in my time.

Over the box sounded like it started off great - and then died down once it was clear Rangers wouldn´t be putting up much of a fight. Which is fair enough really.

As for their fans, heard them a few times but considering how Anfield died off I thought they would be heard more. Plastic flags though? Also, that drum was really fucking annoying. Same with Ajax the other day. I knew Celtic and Rangers have gone down the "Ultras" route in sections of their home stadiums, but didn´t realise they dominated the away ends as well.

Was how it was in the ground. I was pleasantly surprised at the amount joining in at the start, was great, the ones who are normally quiet around us piped up for once, funny thing how that all works really, just takes a bit of a push for the atmosphere to get going and the normally quiet ones to join in.

As you mention their fans were exactly that, disappointing, they sung more second half but I expected a lot more. Benfica fans last year didn't shut up for the full 90, was expecting similar but was tame as fuck really considering all the hype. One lonely, empty bottle got thrown towards the pitch when Salah's pen hit the back of the net, it got caught in the wind and limped onto the grass, that pretty much summed them up.

Didn't even realise they had a drum, didn't hear it all night, which is a nice bonus!

Didn't hear that either, but didn't hear much of them anyway.

Same. From the middle of the Kop I'm used to not hearing certain crowds, but in CL games you usually hear something at least.

I think most football fans are divs these days. Hearts were divs when we played them. But if we'd have played Hearts or Rangers in the 70s they'd have had 10,000 or so screaming fanatics, probably throwing bottles and that like Celtic in the 60s.

And if we played Hibs now, they'd be div's. And we'd be div's as well, cos we're all div's. Football's been turned into a product, and products create div's.

I had to laugh at their fans singing 'where's your famous atmosphere' about two minutes before half time when half the ground have gone for a piss, pie and a pint. Also saw a video of their fans on the way to the ground, one guy has the drum and another fella beats it  :lmao

I'm all for fans making stadiums more colourful and vibrant, but I find this 'Ultras' thing really contrived and tedious. Considering they go on about their passionate following, I thought Rangers were highly disappointing last night. Plastic flags are simply embarrassing. Something you expect from the likes of Chelsea and now Everton. Poor, with no individuality or thought.

The ridiculous drum and accompanying incessant drivel that in no way reacts to the game taking place in front of them is droningly tedious.

After watching the entire game late last night I think our fans were decent. Fell away after a lively start, but given how poor Rangers were it was clear it was going to be an easy night. Passions are bound to fade a little then. It was good to see 'GSTK' and 'Land of Hopeless Tories' was drowned out everytime they reared their ugly heads.

It's weird seeing fans of a club based in a country decimated by the English establishment singing the praises of those who have trodden all over them for centuries. Maybe they are call ex-pat Chelsea fans from London? Or maybe just masochists?

^ very Chelsea that. And just like Chelsea... they stopped waving their plastic flags and apart from a couple of awful 'GSTKs' (easily and quickly drowned out)... went quiet when they went a goal down.

Thanks for replying.

I just read that right through. The idiots roundly condemned by pretty much everyone on there.

It defies belief that some of them would have sung that, given their own tragic history. I suppose you just can't legislate for those devoid of a brain.

I was at that Celtic match just after Hillsborough when there was no segregation. They misinterpreted our airing of the second part of PST and started singing something about "Glory, glory, what a hell of a way to die" which I assumed was a song about Ibrox disaster. But we have a few on here who go up to Celtic (and Rangers) so I might stand corrected.

It was only a few and they were shouted down by other Celtic supporters. We all have divs. Given that the Ev sing Always the victims, when many of them have mates and family badly affected - nothing surprises me.

Yeah, that's what I meant - both sets of fans had extra reason to pause for thought during that silence. Awful tragedies all round. :'(

This is why I've never understood the claims a particular set of fans are awful/disgraceful etc etc.

The fanbase of every team is the same - The majority are absolutely fine....and then there a minority that are pond-life. The proportion might vary a bit from club to club, but not by much, yet we often tar an entire clubs fanbase from what we might see from it's idiot element.

I sit in the lower Kemlyn, towards the Anny Road. Rangers were loud and did sing the vast majority of the game so I would disagree with quite a few of the previous posters. But, the way they have blindly followed the European Ultras type of support defies their roots. Incessant drumming just makes all songs sound the same.

To my ears, it was noticeable that songs such as the Sash my Father wore and Follow, Follow were only sung by a minority of the away support. I couldn’t make out the words of what I would deem their newer songs because of the bloody drum and, of course, the Glaswegian accent but is it possible that they sing less sectarian songs than they used to??

On a couple of other points, the home support in the lower Anny should be applauded as they seemed to start more songs than the Kop. That flag in the Kop with the Liverpool and Rangers flags sown together was a throwback to a different time. Personally, I was disappointed that they weren’t asked to take it down but then, and I am arguing against myself here, we do live in a democracy. Just.

Unless you are referring to a different banner, isn´t that half-Rangers/Liverpool banner the one commemorating the two clubs respective tragedies?


It was good to see 'GSTK' and 'Land of Hopeless Tories' was drowned out everytime they reared their ugly heads.

To be fair I don´t know which one you saw so no idea what was on it - you may well have seen a different one. The one SoS posted is the one I was referring to.

But hey ho. To be honest it doesn´t matter which Old Firm team comes to visit us, it is bound to bring out the worst in some people. An unwanted reminder of this cities sectarian past which we have thankfully mostly buried unlike the Glaswegian lot! Funny how these things only come out when the two clubs with definitive sectarian affiliations come to town. Better off not getting involved with either of them really.

A lot of Rangers fans support an English club as well (often Chelsea) and as a fanbase are very culturally English/unionist, so it was just like playing Stoke or someone in the 3rd round of the League Cup (given the quality of their team) and they don't like us because we booed the national anthem. Obviously we were up for it as a big game but it quickly became apparent it was a mismatch.

Credit to them for getting to the final last season though and they'll make it difficult next week. Ibrox will be red hot for that.

Funny how these things only come out when the two clubs with definitive sectarian affiliations come to town. Better off not getting involved with either of them really.
We haven’t buried it though?
Quite clearly yesterday shown that, I’m no loyalist but some of the things said yesterday honestly baffles me. All I’m saying I know scousers who’ve served an been shot by the IRA but we have people glorifying them  :butt

It's more of a minority now but it gets passed down the generations (the sectarianism).

before the game started they got a couple renditions of GSTK, Rule Britannia and 'always the victims' to a ground that was about 10% full. truly a weird fanbase.

glad we were up for it. i think it was probably helped by an interesting lineup pointing towards a change in tactics which we've direly needed.

Think I've said it before but I genuinely feel a bit sick at myself for wanting that lot to win the league with Gerrard. :puke2

It's why I'm glad we rarely play either Rangers or Celtic. It can bring certain things to the surface that aren't normally on our usual agenda.

I stopped having a dog in that fight many years ago. I used to have a soft spot for Celtic as a kid. I didn't even know or understand the politics back then. I was brought up C of E but once I developed my own mind I was agnostic. Politically I found that I firmly believed in a United Ireland, so I believed in the cause of the IRA but not their methods. I also have a cousin who served in the British Army in Ireland. His mate was shot dead right next to him by the IRA.

I used to have a Celtic shirt, but once I really became aware of the whole sectarian aspect and understood it more I gave it away and have had no interest in either club since. The entire thing is a mess I can do without in my life. I'd hate to be part of it, and if Liverpool and Everton were in any way similar I'd have given up on the game years ago.
