    I don't want to say too much but the relationship I have with the person who told me, coupled with their job and security clearance, is how I know. I was genuinely gutted finding out to be honest.

    The amount of stuff that has been kept quite about him is genuinely Savillesque.

    Star Trek - The Shit, or Just Shit?

    I love the Ferengis in DS9. Blunt is outstanding in the limited appearances he makes - Combs killing it again.

    I'm not ashamed to admit I'm seeing Toyah in a new light here. Whether this is great or awful though I'm still unsure.

    Kicking off in Northern Ireland again?

    This is the GF Rick, can we leave the talk of Everton to the FF please.

    I may well have uncovered this when researching something else (without sounding more of a nob head than I usually do, I've a PhD in sports and so research a few different areas), I genuinely can't remember. I do know I was told this but can't remember if it was via Tony Mason, Richard Holt etc., or I read it. I know it was a while ago but was convinced of its legitimacy at that time (that it wasn't just urban legend or an unsubstantiated anecdote). It's exactly why the idea of "us" doing the coffin thing in the first place came about I'm imagining - as a retort to what had happened before. If it was just us doing it of our own bat and they'd never done anything I still wouldn't be arsed, so it's not me seeking to explain, rationalise or defend the coffin idea if any bitters are reading.

    These cheeky cunts actually did that - not planned, did - when we went down... If they knew their history.

    Football came relatively late to Liverpool - certainly later than to other industrial cities and areas. We didn't tend to have the same type of people who traditionally set up clubs as elsewhere in the country due to the more mercantile class in the city. In truth, it was always a little different here. As I've said before on the site there was no religious allegiance to either club and that comes straight from Tony Mason who would know better than anyone, and certainly some know-nothing, hate-spewing, bitter, woolyback cunt. Indeed, it was football here that helped erode sectarianism to a degree. I'm going to have a look at the article above but without havuing done so already, I'm guessing it's from a PhD at Liverpool uni that looked at sectarianism in the city as there was a chapter on football and the two clubs in that. Edit. Not from the same PhD author.

    They'd have described him as being deceased or having been shot at the scene most likely..
