Stop shouting shoot

Recommended Posts

I would generally agree but I think it was fairly light-hearted stuff with a few games lately having a soporific last 30 minutes when the job was already done.

That has been shouted tongue in cheek from the kop for years and years. It is by no means new, and as Sir Rog says, will be when there had either been quite a few goals scored or a long ranger.

I remember this shout when Hansen was playing for us.  Not new, or wool.

Yes. Next we’ll have complaints about playful booing of Liverpool passing when we’re slaughtering an opponent.

If we hadn’t shouted shoot at Fabinho bs. It’s me wouldn’t have shot. It’s been shouted at Anfield for years, sometimes with a hint of irony/sarcasm and sometimes because we want out players to shoot. Same as “attack attack, attack attack attack” and the similar clap. 
 

It’s never stopping and rightly so

It was boss during Carra's last game and is mildly amusing when we're bumming teams. Singing chants relating to the game would be ace though - Ole's at the Wheel when we were playing other teams was small-time shite.

Agree with that

I generally agree but I did think it was funny when the crowd shouted it when Van Dijk received the ball in our own half. 

 

There's the risk it encourages the players to make bad decisions. 

 

At 4-0 up it doesn't really matter though.

Awful, awful wool shouts from the Kop. 

 

Stop shouting shoot whenever a player is within 40 yards of the goal. Cringe. 

And stop singing, “Liverpool, Liverpool taking the piss” and “Ole’s at the wheel” (thankfully no longer relevant) and “The Reds have got no money” and giving Jota (love him, but come on!!!) the Kenny chant/clap. 
 

There’s funny and then there’s arrogant/small time/premature and the funny ship sailed ages ago with some of these this season.

This. Yesterday it was all the fun to be had in the last 20 minutes - especially shouting it to Alisson.

 

We don't want to make a habit of it, like.

 

(Same story with pitch invasions. It was a laugh to see those two kids after Porto, but we don't need to see it again. It was good to see that bloke being dragged off the pitch yesterday, with wanker signs flying in his direction from all sides.)

You are...

1.  Wrong. It's a boss chant. (And it's "take the piss" - an exhortation, not a commentary.)

2.  Right. Singing about other clubs, especially when you're not playing them, is the acme of small-club behaviour.

3.  Part-right.  As has been mentioned elsewhere, singing it to City, Chelsea or United is OK. Singing it to other clubs is crass. 

4.  Wrong.  As I posted elsewhere, he is looking like a worthy inheritor of the St John handclap.

Agree on the pitch invasion stuff.

 

I don't think the kids at the Porto game should be encouraged/applauded either. Next every 10 year old in the ground will think running on the pitch will get them a match ball & there will be people in the stand with those humiliating '*insert player* give me your shirt or I'll kill myself' banners.

I know Liverpool stopped players signing autographs at the training ground, but can you still write to the club or individual players and ask for autographs? When I was kid, I wrote to loads of players, enclosing something for them to sign and a self-addressed envelope. Graeme Souness and Ronald Koeman were the only players who never obliged.

I don't suppose there's anything to stop you although I suspect the response wouldn't be so great these days.

 

There's a quiet dignity in doing that as opposed to begging for a shirt on live TV.

I once asked Steve McMahon for his shirt. He told me to fuck-off!

On my second trip to Anfield(Ipswich cup replay),we went to collect the tickets one morning and the players were boarding the bus. My cousin started waiving to them, Steve Nicol waived back with one finger. I missed myself laughing at him.

Not a football thing, but I saw a picture of an autograph the other day: some teenage kid in the states had bunked off school because Bruce Springsteen was doing a book signing in the next town. The kid took his book and also a letter for his teacher saying "please may [whatever his name was] be excused from school, as he was attending my book signing" and Bruce signed that too.

You can write in but they get ignored. My little niece idolises Salah. After her ma passed away recently, my ma sent a birthday card in around the time of my niece's birthday and put in a small note explaining what had happened and asking if Salah could sign her card for her. She's sent a couple of things in with the same note and they've been ignored. My ma knows some bloke who works at a veterans charity who works with the club at times and he said that they get that much stuff sent in that they tend to ignore all but the most exceptional of cases. Bit shit, if true, but I can imagine the volume of stuff that is sent in. 

 

I once got elbowed in the head by Jan Molby when trying to get post-match autographs when the players entrance was round the main stand side, up by the little, tiny club shop in the top corner of the player's car park. It's mad how small that shop was compared to the new ones.

Liverpool, Liverpool take the piss....has been around since as long as i can remember at least as far back as the early 80's and is boss.....sadly its almost died out in recent years....at homes anyway, don't get any aways so don't know about them.

 

We actually got it going v arsenal and yesterday and it was to me anyway nice to hear a few remembered it.

 

Ole's at the wheel was utter shite and really fucking small time - just needed to be drowned out by chanting Liverpool, Liverpool, Liverpool in my view every time it started.
