Am I not a fan?
I don’t’ even know how to begin.
Never in my life would I think I had to say this, but my god, there is a lot of shit talking going on here. Never in a million years, would I have thought that my ones, my own red family, the people I see as second sisters and brothers would say something as stupid as this.
When I started to write her on Empire Of The Kop, I was expecting to get many comments by people. Either saying that I should quit write mainly because of the reason that I am of the gender female or you know, that I obviously can’t understand the offside rule.
Hope you sense the sarcasm. But really, I was ready to face people that were going to say that the why I write is bad, that my thoughts are wrong and that I don’t know anything about Liverpool Football Club.
But the other day, I got the worst comment ever.
You call yourselves “fans”? How many of you were at anfield on Thursday? I bet the writer wasn’t.
First and foremost, this person means that everyone one of us, who was not at Anfield on Thursday or any other day, is not a real fan?
Okey, I’m shocked. Are this boy aware of that Liverpool has a quite lot more supporters, then the capacity of Anfield?
Liverpool Football club have millions of fans all around the world. How dare you insult us like that? I’ve gotten mail from people from the US, Kuwait, Austria, India, Malaysia, all of them having one thing in common. Being a red, through and through.
Do you know how hard it is, being a LFC fan abroad? Never having someone to chat to, no shoulder to cry on, no other fan to share the joy with. We can just leave the club when everything screws up, when we don’t win games, cups or trophies. We can just be those plastic fans that every other single club has and just be around whenever we feel like it.
But no, we stand there, just as everyone else does. We are not plastic fans, just because we can’t go to Anfield every gameday. Are you seriously saying that the owner of this blog is less of a fan then you? Or that I am?
I am just stunned that someone would actually offense me and others like that. and by others I mean millions around the world. It should not matter if you turn up to games or not, just as long as your heart beat for Liverpool, nothing else really matters.
At least some of you aren’t complete idiots. This is what a rational person answered;
If real fans are measured by their opportunities to get to watch their club at Anfield or otherwise, then LFC would be a club with very few real fans. I think it is very arrogant (and Chelsea-like) of you to disrespect so many Liverpool fans around the world, some of whom might have supported and followed our team longer than you, and probably before you was even a twitch in your old mans’ sack.
Oh and one more thing. To the lad that wrote that shit. You are lucky, being a Liverpool supporter. Because if you were anything else, I wouldn’t let you get away with it.
