    Needs to be sorted, like others have said, we don't want to go backwards on this issue.

    If we beat them, they will be getting angry. If we lose to them, then they'll celebrate by getting angry in your face, and by trying to goad you in to trouble.

    Their similarity to Liverpool fans is uncanny. :-)

    Must admit you don't see too much trouble from the pie lot, when they win they are too busy congratulating themselves and when they lose they have all gone home before the final whistle

    "The great fallacy is that the game is first and last about winning. It is nothing of the kind. The game is about glory, it is about doing things in style and with a flourish, about going out and beating the other lot, not waiting for them to die of boredom." Danny Blanchflower.
    Might have been written by a footballer about football - but never a truer word............

    Ive said before though, finals tend to be better policed. One thing ive never understood though and maybe im being naive, but why do Warrington seem to hate us saints that much?I mean, a section of their fans hate us more than wigan do

    Said many years ago that some Warrington fans watching the 80-0 and 72-2 massacres would mentally scar them for life.

    Jealousy and geography, not to mention the contempt we have for them and the hidings they've had on and off the pitch over the years in St Helens.

    Ah, Moral Highground FC.

    Whilst Heysel will always be a stain on Liverpool and the club and its fans must always shoulder the blame for that, if you cared to look at the whole scenario, you'd understand it's far more complex than 'Liverpool fans just decided to go feral'. Especially since before that, Liverpool fans were considered great travellers who didn't cause trouble. And we've had numerous excursions into Europe since without a hint of trouble.

    But then, in the last couple of years, we've seen Everton fans having street battles with Millwall fans last season; Everton fans throwing punches at Lyon players who had the temerity to celebrate scoring (in a thorough trouncing of your small, also-ran club); and this week an Everton fan arrested for making racist Tweets.

    Remind me again which fans should be worried about getting tarred with the same brush as the other.
    I f*cking hate wi*an.

    Yup. We've always been keen to laugh at them as our far less famous and successful neighbours, and their fans have developed a real bitterness about it.

    I know people who were at Heysel, including a Juventus fan who admits they started it and I know Everton fans have done plenty wrong over the years but we certainly don't have the same mentality as you lot, nor do we think the footballing world revolves around us and there's absolutely nothing you can say to change my mind on that.

    Great travellers? You were either not around in the early '70's or you've forgotten - Liverpool fans invented the concept of smashing up railway carriages.
