Here's my take on Hearts fans last night.

Loads of maroon whoppers too full of ale who would normally never go to aways dressed like Xmas trees.
Up for a big game, but let's face it, it wasn't a big game for Liverpool.
Your going on about the shit atmosphere in the home end. How great was the atmosphere against Inverness at home the other week? How will it be against Dundee on Sunday?

Watched a bit I sky+ this morning. The guy in tears at the end of the game :-) brilliant!!

When's the draw for the group stages????

Don't read too much into the comments on an internet forum - it takes all - I listened to the entire match on Radio Scotland and the Hearts Fans were very vocal - I only heard about 10 minutes maximum of songs insulting Suarez etc - The Hearts Song was the loudest sung.

There is an element of Anfield support that seems to think just because they are from Liverpool they have some sort of special status - much of this seemed to spring up in the aftermath of the dreadful Hillsborough disaster and seems to be born like some badge of honour by fans who were toddlers at the time it was a terrible tragedy that I remember clearly but using it as an excuse to take offence like some sort of martyrs badge is really not on and IMHO is deeply disrespectful of the victims and their families.

Quite why any visiting team should be respectful of Liverpool and their ground, fans etc is beyond me - its not exactly like they respected our home ground by sitting in awed silence.


Thought the Hearts fans were very respectful, came to party, shouted loud and proud, mixed with home fans, who thinks they weren't respectful?

An imaginative and unpredictable response. Congratulations.
You're clearly a dullard mate, but the question remains, are you the exception or the rule?

So if not winning a title in two decades makes you an arsehole what does that make Hearts?? What a pathetic comment.
I think the point is why should Hearts walk into Anfield and worship Liverpool. This only goes to prove the point I have been making about Liverpool and their thick fans, apart from forever enjoying the role of the victim, they are quite clearly in denial the football power is no longer with them. I can say this quite honestly, as a sympathiser of Leeds, with a pathalogical hatred of Manchester Utd and Chelsea (I am sane, its a joke, honestly), that Liverpools attempts to grasp onto history from over 20 years back is laughable. Get over yourselves, you aren't famous anymore, you arent really a top 4 club anymore, history means nothing when you take to the pitch.

Tradition is great, both of our clubs are traditional but I wouldnt expect Alloa fans not to bate us at Tynecastle if they did well. Its banter, if you cant handle that, then dont go to football and dont enter forums. I soon as I've posted this I accept the consequences of my witterings.

Why do so many Hearts fans have this perception that they are somehow expected to 'worship' Anfield. Very perplexing.   Have to agree with the history bit, plenty of Liverpool fans are engrossed with history, you will have to be in your late 20's to remember Liverpool winning the league.  I would prefer a lot of the glory hunters to quietly dissapear.  Most Scousers prefer away trips now, like Elland Rd a couple of esaons back, ( 1-0, sorry for the banter).  Not a day tripper in sight at this one.

Partly true, and it was a big game for Hearts.   Change the maroon to red and make it Euro final for Liverpool and you will find the fans were very similar.

Seems that some of your pals felt that we should be more respectful, what a load of nonsense. Unfortunately some of the hard of thinking seem to have hijacked this thread with disgusting taunts which simply aint banter. Leeds and Blackburn have both won the English League since Liverpool have. Given the tradition I am surprised that they have never managed to get things going as a true power, no team can ever rest on its past. Singing You'll Never Walk Alone at every game and Dalglish is not the answer. Not sure about American owners, think they are somehow worse than eccentric Russians for some reason. Why has Liverpool never had the investment that either a Chelsea or Man City have. I cant help thinking it has got something to do with the culture myself, but admittedly I don't profess to be an expert

We're not though, support at Pittodrie was very weak. Pity as a real noisy Hearts away support is how I grew up with the club, now that I have family of my own and cant commit to away games like I once did (especially nights like last night) I am jealous of the younger guys. They should go to as many games as they can and make as much noise, the club is well worth it.

Have met loads of quality Liverpool fans over the last couple of days. Unfortunately there's always one and you are that one.

Complete and utter tosser.

Liverpool were once a great famous club. No more. Don't see you lot finishing in the top 6 this year. Did the stadium tour today and whilst you stay in the dark ages clinging to your Shankly traditions, you'll stay there.

All the Liverpool fans (and Evertonians) that we met yesterday were great banter and really friendly and helpful. Had a great time at concert square and at the match, our support did us proud and many Liverpool fans told us this as we were walking back to hotel.

A lot of the comments on the post-match thread on RAWK say pretty much that.

As well as we apparently only sang anti-Liverpool/Suarez songs for the whole 90 minutes (which is clearly bollocks).

From your very own fans:

Livbevs on RAWK:

Got to admit I thought the Hearts fans might of been humble and respectful about playing a big club in a World famous stadium. They were a bunch of pricks from the second I left my apartment until I just got in 15mins ago. Very small time whopperish behaviour in town and outside/inside the ground.

what a pompous arse!

Completely enjoyed my trip to Liverpool.  Good banter with the locals and a great atmosphere in the ground.

  I don't support any English teams so don't have any prejudged idea's on LFC.  They were the better team on the night and although we ran them close they were the one's who qualified.  Good luck to them. Until we meet again.

There really are some pathetic people on here, almost trying to out do each other on I hate everyone/ Im a better fan. This board really has gone to the dogs. We have fans from other teams and I actually appreciate opposing views as it sometimes helps not to see with maroon tinted specs, Andylfc states his opinion, others are whining about a Liverpool fan on a Liverpool board and then the comments about a tragedy that happened, not amusing, perhaps you think the coach accident being mentioned by other fans as a dig at us would be acceptable? Few people on this board really need to grow the .... up!

I'm ashamed to be classed along side you as a Jambo
