THAT famous Scouse wit:

Liverpool fans showed off this most excellent banner at the 2005 Champions League final, held – you might have heard about it – in Istanbul.

Turkish fans are now synonymous with devilish hospitality, especially since the tragic tie between Leeds Utd and Galatasaray in 2000 (which spawned another classic banner). I imagine Liverpool will receive a very warm welcome when they play Trabzonspor this evening.

Can any Liverpudlians confirm or deny that?
