Liverpool fans' fury forces Carlsberg u-turn

CARLSBERG today scrapped a promotion with The Sun newspaper after a furious backlash from Liverpool fans.The Danish brewer had planned to link up with the tabloid newspaper to give readers a free pint over this month’s bank holiday weekend.

But the move was met with derision from some Liverpool fans, who were angry the club’s shirt sponsor was working with a newspaper hated by many in Merseyside.Reds’ supporters still boycott The Sun because of its coverage of the 1989 Hillsborough disaster, in which 96 Liverpool fans died.


Well done to Carlsberg. The SCUM newspaper is indeed hated on Merseyside, I don't know why newsagents even bother to put it on their stands. Not only is this paper a money grabbing opportunistic comic, but recently on this site we pointed out that it sells Nazi third Reich memorabilia totally disrespecting our war heroes from the second world war. I will never buy or look at this comic for the rest of my days.

  1. It has been reported that there were 1800 people at the RWB over the weekend. I was there both days and I don't think there were more than 300 people on the Saturday and perhaps 500 on Sunday. But given most of the 300 people on Saturday were also there on Sunday as well, a more realistic figure for the total weekend attendance would be 550 to 600.

    I also saw a few people turn up for the EGM afterwards, but as I don't think they had to pay I don't think they should be counted as being at the RWB itself.

  2. Well mr anon shows what a load of rubbish you talk doesnt it. I happened to be on the set up team and I know that over 3600 people had passed through the gate by Sunday morning. So why dont you go an tell lies somewhere else, maybe in court with the rest of your reds we were arrested by the police.

  3. anon must have been in the field a mile down the road with the reds.nice meeting you folks by the way.just off to meet my old scouse mate for a few bevvies.keep up the good work merseyside
