Those cheeky Scousers, they don’t really mean it…

March 2003: Spotted in the Liverpool end at Cardiff’s Millennium Stadium during the 2002-03 League Cup final – political banners at football matches are rare indeed. The Iraq War began less than three weeks after the final. I guess George W didn’t see this one.

Liverpool bombed Man Utd on the pitch (ahem), winning 2-0 with goals by Steven Gerrard and Michael Owen.
