Looking beyond rivalry, Liverpool are becoming a very detestable club.
The way they have handled the whole Suarez/Evra affair has left a bad taste in the mouth of many, and some of their fans haven’t made it any better.
When we faced them in the FA Cup they made a point of booing Patrice Evra and one fan was caught on camera making monkey gestures at him, his only crime was to complain that he had been racially abused by one of their players.
The Tom Adeyemi incident further painted their club in a bad light and this won’t do them any favours either.
This fan can be seen here with Liverpool’s third kit with the words “Mr. Negrito” printed on the back at tonight’s game against Tottenham.
Gestures like this, whilst thoughtless and perhaps an attempt at humour, are inflammatory as well as insensitive.
Of course this is by no means an attack on all Liverpool fans, there are undoubtedly some who didn’t agree with their club’s stance during the case, as well as fans in Anfield in the end of January that didn’t boo Evra.
