My mind wandered during the Liverpool-Milan match and I found myself wanting Liverpool to win. (Incidentally read Dave Barry's brilliant blog reports on the match from an English pub in Miami. Last post is Final Crapcam Photo) However, I returned to my default condition of Liverpool loathing when I subsequently heard returning 'fans' being interviewed about the trouble at the match on their return from Athens. They, of course, did what scousers do best; they whined about it not being their fault. Seemingly 'fans' breaking into the ground without tickets was caused by poor Greek policing. They let them do it, see? One has to admire their original take on the concept of moral agency. Anyway, so far UEFA is unmoved and has blamed the English 'fans'. In time, however, these Johnny Foreigners will be worn down by the whining and will, as usual, apologise to the city and its people.
