I have heard this BS coming from some claiming that the Liverpool Supporters’ Union Spirit of Shankly (S.O.S.) is disruptive and do not help events on the field.
Well, I did some research and here are the facts based on the protest events that S.O.S. organised this season.
We have not had many victories to claim this season on the pitch but four of them happened after an S.O.S. protest event.
Oct 25th : Man Utd. game – Liverpool won 2-0
Sept 26th : Hull game – Liverpool won 6-1
Sept 22nd : Leeds (away) game – Liverpool won 1-0
Sept 19th : West Ham (away) game – Liverpool won 3-2
And this is not some voodoo fact, we all know that the 12th man helps lift our team. The protests get the supporters warmed up and then when they enter the stadium they are fired up. This was the most evident in our best two home games this season against Hull & Man Utd.
My plea to S.O.S. is Please Please Please, we want more protests.
