Rule 1 for the BBC (and for everybody else). NEVER say anything bad about Liverpool (and especially LFC “fans”)


David Davis

Very sorry, but it has to be fisked. Even the Booby-See has had to eat humble pie, in the face of this onslaught. Whatever it is that’s bad that happens to Liverpool, or its people, or the fans and supporters of LFC, it’s NOt their fault, OK, geddit?

Field Marshall Viscount Montgomery of Alamein said the following:-

  • “The U.S. has broken the second rule of war. That is, don’t go fighting with your land army on the mainland of Asia. Rule One is don’t march on Moscow. I developed these two rules myself.”
(spoken of the US approach to the Vietnam War) Quoted in Chalfont’s Montgomery of Alamein.[38]

He ought also to have said:-

“Never say anything bad or deleterious about the City of Liverpool, its people, or its foot ball supporters; they are functionally incapable of evil-doing, even when in Sheffield, and even if the harm was to each other. I also developed this rule.”

  1. Saying something bad about Liverpool in that city will call forth one’s certain demise – usually within a matter of a moment or two.

  2. I know, but the balloon has to be pierced at some point, eventually.

    Here is only 20-odd miles up the road so they know where to come.

    Monty? Sorry, not…. He may well have not been an hysterical secret old woman like la Patton of course, that much is to his credit anyway. But I’ll take Auchinleck everytime, the real victor at Alamein.

    What did the Auk say about Liverpoodles, eh?

    (I’m way over here in Squawbunion County, nanner-nanner!)
