A lot has been made, especially on social media, of some of the songs a section of the Newcastle support were singing at Anfield on Saturday. In short, for those of you that don’t know, although I’m sure you do, the songs are based on poverty in Liverpool.

I for one don’t sing those songs but I’m not outraged by them, I just don’t think they are either clever or original, not particularly funny and most importantly it isn’t really related to supporting your own team. I generally leave it to other people to sing songs aimed purely at opposing fans.

It is important to note as well, that the majority of those singing the songs are just kids, or at the very least, young adults. Groups of lads who have been on the train or the bus all day drinking, generally having a laugh. When I was 16, I think I did sing those songs too.

Whenever a group of lads are having a laugh, it is always a case of asking “who is it at the expense of?” – in some cases chants are obviously unacceptable and shouldn’t be tolerated, including racist songs, sexist songs towards females in attendance, those that are directly offensive to individuals, or a controversial political statement.

Of course, Newcastle supporters would be better off singing songs about our own team for sure and really there isn’t much of a need for them to sing the songs they did. In an ideal world they wouldn’t be singing that – but when did it become so taboo for football fans to engage in (what they see as) banter? What is the world coming to?

What is also funny is that I know many Liverpool fans who have been quick to make jokes about James McCarthy’s recent broken leg at Everton… is that not allowed? It’s just banter between opposing fans, it has existed in football for god knows how many years.

I even read on twitter a few Liverpool fans complaining that we came up with the Steven Gerrard “slipped on his arse” song… I mean, so what if we did? Where do I start? Again, putting aside the obvious inexcusable racism or sexism chants, the minute we start controlling the songs that some football fans sing, we might as well just give up.

If there is anything to complain about regarding songs at Anfield yesterday, it would be the complaint that I usually have at Anfield… the fact that there aren’t any songs!

As far as atmosphere goes, Anfield is one of the worst in the Premier League and it has been since I started following Newcastle (granted that only includes the PL All-Seater stadium era). One of the biggest myths in the PL era is that the atmosphere at Anfield is good.

For the record too, Newcastle fans have done so much for charity, especially in terms of the amazing work that goes on by NUFC FoodBank, and the fundraising, via Gallowgate Flags, that goes to the beneficiaries. On top of this, it’s not as if we play our home games down Kensington High Street is it?

We also come from an area of the country that struggles with poverty and unemployment, equally feeling the full force of Thatcher’s economic policies, so not difficult to appreciate that it is tongue in cheek and a wind-up, not as though we come from a well-off region. It also needs noting the support our fans have provided to the JFT96 movement.

At the end of the day, it is just football fans having a ‘laugh’ at….well, nobody’s expense?

This probably sounds more like a rant, rather than an opinion piece, but including those young lads who sang those songs yesterday, I think everyone else kicking up a fuss just needs to gain a little more perspective.

  • paul mclaughlan

    As much as I like Scousers they came up with the most offensive chant of all time about the Munich air disaster.

    • Jay Johnson

      you love mancs in newcastle hey?

      • Leazes.

        no

      • Jezza

        No we just think celebrating loss of life to be in bad taste.

      • paul mclaughlan

        I’m not really a fan of mancs full stop. Every time I’ve come across them home or abroad they tend to be very unfriendly compared to people in other parts of the country. I can only speak as I find. And I’ve always found Scousers really friendly funny people.

    • Slick

      What like screaming murderers for the last 20 years even during minute silences like those classy dorset living, united supporting fans? Stay classy San Diago.

      • Dont stop bobbi fleckman

        Liverpool fans are just as bad as Man Yoo for the daytripping glory hunter type

      • paul mclaughlan

        I’m just pointing out a fact that all (I’m sure a small section) supporters are guilty of inappropriate chants. Some worse than others. I remember a small section of Toon fans were singing “a town full of P**is” at a Coventry match a few years back. I prefer humour to bad taste.

    • pete

      Interesting given the comments re censorship my post was deleted by this site presumably because I used the c word. Not in an offensive way but in reporting fact. Liverpool have banned 2 season ticket holders for a season for calling Harry Kane a “ horrible cheating c” so it’s unlikely any reference to Munich would be tolerated nowadays. I also referenced some of the gas chamber noises made by Arsenal fans at Spurs and the obscene songs and t shirts directed at Wenger by Chelsea and Spurs fans. There have always been elements of supporters who cross a line into the totally unacceptable- thankfully in the main we’re moving away from that I hope.

  • Jay Johnson

    Always had respect for Newcastle fans, always turn up support the team that never wins anything and from working class backgrounds , however for people similar to scousers to slag fellow working class is a shame,

    • Benmagpie

      Agreed brother. I personally would not condone such chants.

    • Lofty

      Nice little dig there Jay, turn up to support the team that never wins anything…we have however won the Premier League as many times as Liverpool 😉 I have the greatest respect for Liverpool (and Everton) as a club and a City, and you’re right, we have more in common than most. Here’s hoping the general good will built between our support can remain.

  • Leazes.

    Let’s get this straight ‘feed the scousers, do they know it’s christmastime’ is not funny!

    • Dont stop bobbi fleckman

      Lighten up

  • ghostrider

    Looks like stuff is going to get blown out of all proportion.
    This seems to be the world we live in now.
    Soon you’ll be offensive if you cough in the street or let out a stray fart.

  • jack

    Ask an Evertonian , they’ll tell you how big of chip Liverpool supporters have on their shoulders , and how much they whinge if they don’t get their own way , they can dish it alright but don’t like it back

    • pete

      Which is why they’re called the bitters?

      • jack

        Bang on . Well named

        • pete

          You do know which Team are referred to as the bitters?

          • jack

            Yeah EVERTON . BUT I THINK ITS DEBATEABLE

          • pete

            Not in Liverpool. It’s very clear.

    • Slick

      Says the bitter blue nose.

      • jack

        I’ve supported Newcastle for nearly sixty years , some blue nose ! , I’ve heard both sides , blue and red having lived in the area with work

  • JJ

    Liverpool fans don’t sing offensive songs towards Newcastle fans so don’t know why you were constantly doing it towards us yesterday. Yes our home support don’t sing much but our away support is equal to anything around and apart from when we play the mancs we keep our songs respectful.

    • Leazes.

      pay no attention to them.

    • Lofty

      I would understand the sign on chant being offensive and quite dumb given the unemployment in the North East, but most of the offence seems to have been caused by the Gerrard chant? Like no LFC supporter has ever sang ‘ We saw you cry on the telly’ from 1996?

    • Old codger

      Sadly those who did it will be about 20.
      Brought up on sky,social media and no idea what the 70s and 80s were about
      And why would they ?
      Politics is simply something that old codgers Bleat On About ,while They Catch Up On TOWIE and wax their chest

  • Rudi Boy

    The atmosphere at Anfield is not very good I will agree with that, nowadays it seems to be saved for the games against the big teams or the derby or the big European nights! im afraid games against Newcastle are in the same bracket as playing Watford or West Ham etc.

    • Jezza

      I think it’s the same everywhere. All seater stadiums, Sky Sports, the Premiership and overerall gentrification of footbal have long since conspired to kill the traditional match day atmosophere.

  • Alan Parkins

    Got no issue with the songs myself, just normal football banter.
    .
    That said, we expect those songs from our bitter rivals the Manc’s, Everton, Chelsea and from toss-pot minnows in the FA Cup – so it was disappointing for them to come from one of the few group of fans who we enjoy a friendly affinity with and have done ever since the 1974 FA Cup final – and we all love Rafa.
    .
    We also applauded your protest against Ashley as we understand your situation, we had exactly the same issue with Hicks & Gillette so a bit of slap around the chops I guess.

    • Leazes.

      that’s the spirit

    • anyobrien

      Excellent post

    • GeordieZebra

      I’m a geordie who sat in the centenary stand keeping my head down. The whole stadium applauding the ‘get out of our club’ showed the like minded fan base on what is ‘right’. The silly chants that the dim witted minority make isn’t reflective of the majority.

  • pete

    “As far as atmosphere goes, Anfield is one of the worst in the Premier League and it has been since I started following Newcastle (granted that only includes the PL All-Seater stadium era). One of the biggest myths in the PL era is that the atmosphere at Anfield is good.“
    As you follow Newcastle home and away you visit Anfield once a year, last won in 1994 but feel qualified to make such a strong definitive statement? What do you base this on? Just the Newcastle games at Anfield? Match of the day? Radio five live commentary? The need to make a groundless unsubstantiated claim to get clicks ?

    • Jezza

      I would say anybody who has only been to football matches in the Premiership all seater era has never experienced a real football match atmosphere. The atmosphere at St James’s Park these days is a pale shadow of what it was in the old days of uncovered terraces.

      • pete

        Totally agree. Used to stand on the Kop as a kid in the 70s, best ever game was 1977 against St Etienne. You can’t recreate that sort of atmosphere in any ground without standing. Also you get so many more people in.

    • Albert Stubbins

      No mate. It’s what everybody in football says. You know I know it everyone knows it. Only on European nights do you bovver your collective ar***. Get over it.

      • pete

        Yet again an inane generalisation and assumption based on what? “It’s what everyone in football says” really? “You know I know it everyone knows it” Assume you mean “you know it” well I’ve been going to Anfield since 1968 and I can tell you the atmosphere is not one of the worst in the Premier league. But Newcastle will probably have one of the best in the Championship. More banter there by the way.

        • Albert Stubbins

          Still not bovvered then?

          • pete

            No Really not

            Get Outlook for iOS

      • pete

        Nb I really have nothing to get over. We hammered one of the worst Newcastle sides in living memory in spite of the undeserving loyalty of a legendary manager, and the away fans – or some of them – resorted to unimaginative regurgitation of puerile aged insults which ironically probably apply more to themselves than their intended targets. Banter used to be witty, clever and creative. Clearly a vociferous minority of your away contingent don’t subscribe to that notion. I think that for a club like Newcastle that’s sad. Irrespective of the atmosphere at Anfield, which like all PL grounds is a pale shadow of what it was in the 70s and 80s we’re playing the most exciting attractive football in the PL along with Man City. So really nothing for me to “get over”

        • Albert Stubbins

          Clearly not bovvered then? :)

  • Harry’s Bar

    Newcastle fans can sing what they want. Yes unemployment is worse in Newcastle than Liverpool so it’s a rather hollow sentiment and indicates that the crowd is rather dim. Still it’s the result that counts no matter what emanates from the stereotypical fan. Thanks for the three points and I hope Rafa keeps you up before finding a club that can better reflect his talent.

  • Monkseaton Magpies

    First of all the police and stewards yesterday were a disgrace at least a hundred of our fans were denied entry or thrown out for no reason. This was a step back to the hostile days of the seventies and eighties in short the police and stewards have no place in society or football a total disgrace. I witnessed one father and son denied entry normal people kicked out and arrested this must stop and has no place in football. The only songs I do not like are the anti Ashley sons which do nothing for the cause. Remember seeing a Munich fifty eight banner at one match from the Liverpool fans these supporters are sick in the head. Had my honeymoon in Belgium just after the Heysel disaster where fans were killed by Liverpool fans where is the justice for those poor fans no one has been held to account.

    • Joe

      Don’t throw stones and bricks at the away fans and expect no response you uneducated Bell end…..Maybe them fans would still be alive??? If I threw a brick at you would you just stand there???? #JUSTSAYING

  • King Kenny

    What poor…I was going to say journalism, but this scribble was dreadful.
    The silly little boy even thinks us scousers cared about Newcastle coming to Anfield.
    Getting down to the point , let’s investigate.
    Liverpool’s home support has always varied over the years according to the opposition. Naturally, as with all clubs, in the last few years support has changed, obviously based on demographics and ticket availablity for locals. The atmosphere has generally suffered but when we’re up for it, no-one is up for it like scousers.
    One thing that we’ve universally left out is dwelling on poverty. Poor classless show that was from your supporters yesterday.. Geordies may like to think of themselves in a similar way to us scousers, but you simply come across as nasty INGERLAND Tory merchant bankers with the IQs of whippets.
    Drape-Comyn has obviously not been to Anfield when things are going on. Nowhere in football, apart from maybe Celtic park or the Bombonera compares.

    Newcastle, sadly, sunshine, doesn’t come anywhere near it. Anfield has an ability to pick and choose the games when the volume goes up and down, and it’s thanks to our history fella. Our place is a time capsule which has drunk in the atmosphere over the decades. Fathers pass it on to sons and grandsons. Just like our tradition with flags. We’ve been taking them for the last 50 years, not the last twelve months.
    Do some research and read about Inter Milan, St Etienne, Chelsea, etc. The genie pops out of the bottle if and when our supporters feel arsed. We don’t need your lot to wake us up.
    And contrary to what peoople say, it’s not just the European nights that are special. It can even be an insignificant opposition like Newcastle. Yesterday, admittedly wasn’t up there.
    Geordies live in a bubble of over-hype. You’re a one city team with a catchment area that stretches for 100s of miles and the only competition is from the Makkems and Hartlepool. Little wonder you get full houses. It would surprising if you didn’t.
    All this nonsense about Geordie passion is total bollocks. We’ve been there enough over the years to realise that it’s all in the mind . They even put the away supporters up in the Gods at St James’ to avoid any competition and their inability at producing their own song material is ‘kin legendary! A rival to the Highbury library if there ever was one.
    And yesterday, after a few classless “sign on “ and “ social deprevation songs, followed by the classy “your support …blah”, they give us scousers our own “Rafa Benitez classic song”. What does one do? Laugh or cry? At least write your own material !!
    I hope you go down and do a disappearing act à la Forest or Leeds United. British football is best without your lot of self-congratulatory illusionists. And for atmosphere, give yourselves a treat and visit Anfield when we play one of the big clubs.

    • Benmagpie

      its ‘mackem’ not makkem……and what’s with Mane’s high hairline ? Embrace baldness and shave it off instead of that daft half on half off look. At least if we do go down we won’t have to put up with this bullox any more.

    • Jonathan Drape-Comyn

      I always read the comments on most of the articles on The Mag, rarely do I comment but its nice to take in what everyone is thinking.

      There is a lot of stuff i agree with, and maybe more i disagree with on the comments section. Love different opinions, especially from fellow Newcastle fans.

      However, it pains me to say it, but that post above is probably the funniest, most delusional, load of walter milty nonsense I have ever had the misfortune to read.

      My only hope is that you are actually a fellow geordie who made that comment as some sort of parody.

      Oh, and as a Celtic/Irish man, i don’t half know what a good European atmosphere is like, and bhoy, it isn’t Anfield.

      • Dave Hopkins

        As a scouse Englishman i can tell u that proper European nights cant be beat anywere. Mind u .its not as if celtic get past group games.and most of the time the ground is half empty with the idiots in the standjng section bouncing up and down with backs to the action
        God bless Drummer Rigby u spud pickers

    I hate that song especially and the way younger fans/come latelys lower the tone.
    but King Kenny has just justified the article with that rant.
    displaying many of the negative generalizations people have of Liverpool fans; arrogant whingers, left wing loonies, sanctimonious (LFC fans would never dream of such conduct)
    anywhere can have a good atmosphere for a big game ffs, even the mackems fill their ground for us, they’re the exceptions not the rule.
    imagine what the atmosphere and attendance would be like their if they had our record.

  • King Kenny

    Hahaha! They even remove your comments ‘cos you beg to differ with them! Like you do at the match. Stick the away supporters in the Gods so they can’t be seen!

      You’ve noticed that United’s fansite is run by a bunch of idiot tories then…. well spotted! I don’t disagree with anything you’ve said. I’ve been to Anfield when it was rocking and it was truly an experience along with the unique pay as you go parking schemes administered by youths with bricks. We’ve all moved on….well most of us.

    • Coble’s Return

      This is all a bit unnecessary, isn’t it. Here’s the thing – there a true, loyal, travel 200 miles there and back on a cold, wet Tuesday night fans and there are those who turn up for the big games only. There are those who back their own team and sing themselves hoarse in the hope of inspiring a better performance, and there are others who seem to concern themselves solely with goading a response from the opposition and who embarrass themselves and their fellow supporters with thoughtless and offensive songs and chants. There are also those who just want to sit quietly and take in the game. We have all kinds, as does LFC and every other club. The poverty chants are petty, crass and embarrassing, but not everyone sings them. The Hillsborough / Munich songs heard when the Scousers play the Mancs are on another level and are absolutely disgusting. Those who sing them represent themselves only though and it is a bit small minded to tar everyone else with the same brush.

      The other point that I would make is that almost any club of any size can generate a great atmosphere. Morecombe, Accrington, Stevenage away in the cup competitions maybe lack the scale, but their fans can kick out a tune as well as anyone on the big occasion. “No-one is up for it like the Scousers”? Open your mind mate.

    • Lofty

      Just a reply to some of your points King Kenny. You defend your own clubs history and advise us to look in the history books but have you? If by history, you mean further back than the mid sixties I think you’ll find our clubs place in the food chain were very much reversed. Up until Mr Shankly transformed your club Newcastle United had 4 League Titles and 6 FA Cup wins. In that same period, Liverpool had 4 League Titles and not a solitary FA Cup success. Our clubs have gone in completely different directions since, but you can’t use history as a stick against Newcastle United my friend. As for Anfield being a ‘time capsule’ every club has that. My Uncle took me, I took my son and he’ll take his children. No club has the rights on tradition, whether that be Liverpool or Luton Town. As for the classless chants, please do me a favour. Singing about people dying on runways as opposed to being unemployed? Leaving the stupidity out of someone living in an area with the highest unemployment in the country taunting others with ‘sign on’ chants aside, I’ll let you take the moral high ground with that one. The truth is every club has knackers who are blind to anything but there own team, and you have every right to defend your own club and city, but please if you’re going to unleash a tirade take your own advice and read the history books.

      • Coble’s Return

        In fairness, the Anfield Road End is a time capsule true enough. You walk in there and you are right back in 1975.

    • Albert Stubbins

  • Lhc

    coming from scousers eh when there’s videos all over the shop of then signing Munich who’s that dieing on the runway etc at Man Utd away, I mean I don’t like Man Utd but that’s below the belt. I used to like Liverpool fans but tbh now got no time for them, the mo salah song kicking about at the minute some of there fans sing makes my skin crawl, total insult to certain events that have happened in this country, I class Liverpool along the lines of Celtic fans (gobshit#s)

  • ataturk5

    I was going the match from 73,in the kop,20+thou in there,and standing,of course the atmosphere was better then,it was in every stadium,not having a dig at Newcastle here,but it’s certain games where the atmosphere is better,the Mancs,top 6 teams,the derby,i wouldn’t think most grounds were much different?Newcastle v S/land would be better atmosphere than Newcastle v B/mouth,it’s all relative isn’t it.

    Regarding the Heysel comment,i was there,and i’ve never forgotten it,and nor should i,i was in the section next to the Juve fans,which was the ‘neutral’ section if i recall correctly,but we were outnumbered 2 to 1 that night,it was Thatchers 80’s,a lot out of work/unable to afford it,so the neutral section was Juve,and Juve throwing a lot of missiles our way,which isn’t an excuse,i’m just giving background info.

    The seeds for Heysel were sown the year before,when we had to play Roma in their own stadium in the European cup final,the Lpool fans were attacked non stop,before during and especially after the match,while the Italian police stood and watched,men women+kids were attacked,google it,i’m not lying.
    So as soon as the missiles started flying,thoughts went back to Rome,our fans climbed fencing+ripped it down,and charged,the Juve fans climbed a wall to get away,sadly the wall collapsed and killed them,it was a shameful night that i’ve never forgotten,but if it wasn’t for that crumbling stadium,they wouldn’t have died,that scenario of fans charging each other and climbing walls to get away happened often in the 70’s and 80’s,i know,because i had to do it myself when times were a bit more violent,it was a tragedy that shouldn’t and wouldn’t have happened if it wasn’t for that crumbling pit of a stadium.
    Re ‘no one’ being charged,14 were eventually convicted of involuntary manslaughter,they spent a year behind bars,maybe not long enough for some,but people ‘were’ convicted.

    Re the ‘offensive’ chants from Newcastle fans,i wasn’t ‘offended’,i’ve had plenty of stereotypical Scouse ‘jokes’ thrown at me while working away in the UK on the building,especially London,they just get it back times ten,i just thought the ‘sign on’ song was a bit ‘daft’ for want of a better word.
    As some fans have pointed out in a defensive way,yes,Newcastle has suffered similar problems with unemployment,so ‘to me’ it’s all the more reason ‘not’ to mock over unemployment,personally i’d never mock anywhere over people suffering hardship,but then i’m one of those Scouse ‘Loony lefties’,IE a socialist,and i’d be going against my principles if i celebrated Thatchers Tory policies laying waste to whole regions(for instance).
    I just sat there and smiled at the irony of people from a city that gave us the principled and proud Jarrow marchers mocking unemployment,so no,not offended,it’s just daft lads,and very unoriginal,leave all that to the cockney clubs eh.
    Right,i’ve had my say,not here to point score,or slag Newcastle fans off,i’ve had mostly decent conversations on here in the lead up to the match,so fair do’s.
    To the Celtic fan,a club that have done so much for the justice campaign btw,and thank you for that,i’ve got 2 mates down here from Castlemilk,still go the game up there,and they’ve bemoaned the atmosphere after some games too mate,especially before the rail seating went in,so it’s not just the PL that has suffered during the sanitisation of football,anyway,that’s me done,carry on :)

    • Leazes.

      Nice one!

      • ataturk5

        Thanks,it’s been all good on here as far as i’m concerned,good luck

  • Scottie Chugger Dearden

    I sing the sign on chant sometimes, I know I’m not trying to offend anyone, I predominantly sing it to Celtic fans on their glorious European nights and they don’t seem to be bothered by it (some of their chants are really offensive) nor am I offended by the Aston Villa bed sheets!

    I remember Chelsea fans singing in your Newcastle Slums once at SJP and laughed it off. My presumption is Liverpool fans will be the same.

  • Rich Lawson

    A lot worse goes on in cricket as ”sledging” between the players,if it’s funny it’s funny,if it’s cruel or racist that’s another thing. It’s part of the game,you can’t stop it.

  • Martin

    I wish we would stop singing ‘Your support is fuc*in’ sh*te’ at the away fans. Particularly stupid this week as whoever is there from Southampton will have had to travel a round trip of 650 miles to attend the match. Pathetic behaviour.

      yes considering the away support is much more vocal.
