Liverpool Fans The Worst

A damning Uefa report branding Liverpool fans the worst in Europe is to be presented to sports minister Richard Caborn.
European football's governing body says there have been more incidents involving Reds supporters than any others.
The report is based on the findings of undercover police agents over the last four years.
It paints a damning picture of Liverpool fans' behaviour at last month's Champions League final in Athens, which Milan won 2-1.
There were violent scenes outside the stadium and inside after many fans gained access with forged tickets - and in some cases no tickets at all.
Uefa spokesman William Gaillard said: "The incidents involving Liverpool fans have been well known to us before the trouble at the Champions League final.
"That was just the latest example. What other set of fans steal tickets from their fellow supporters or out of the hands of children?
"We know what happened in Athens, and Liverpool fans were the cause of most of the trouble there."
He went on: "There have been 25 incidents involving Liverpool fans away from home since 2003 and these are in the report - most teams' supporters do not cause any trouble at all."
Gaillard added: "You must ask yourself why at the same match, with the same conditions, there was no trouble with the Milan fans - only the Liverpool fans."
Liverpool have sent their own report to UEFA complaining about lax security measures at the final.
The city's Lord Mayor Paul Clark has also hit back in the Liverpool Daily Post.
He said: "UEFA appear to be trying to avoid the blame for the disorganisation of the final.
"To make matters worse, instead of looking at their own faults UEFA are blaming the people of Liverpool."
I hate bloody Scourers too!
