It's just been revealed that fans in Anfield's famous Kop end got involved in yet another race row as the FA cup tie against Oldham Athletic drew to a close on Friday evening.
According to St John's ambulanceman, Jimmy Clackett, Kop season ticket holder Joey McMuppet sparked the race row by claiming aloud that Red Rum won his third Grand National in 1976.
In a moment of boredom as the mighty reds cruised to a relatively easy 5-1 victory.
Dozens of loyal race loving footy fans rounded on McMuppet, claiming that he'd got it all wrong, and that Rummy actually finished in second place in 1976, and didn't claim his third record breaking Grand National victory until 1977.
McMuppet rounded on his fellow fans, claiming that he was certain that Rummy's third race victory hadn't occurred in 1977, as he remembered it well, because that was the year that those bastards from Manchester United denied Liverpool the treble by winning the FA cup at Wembley with a Jimmy Greenhoff goal, in a 2-1 victory for the Manc rabble.
Knowledgable racing fans in the Kop told McMuppet to sit down and shut up because he was talking out of his arse as usual, and assured him that Red Rum did finish second in 1975 and 1976 and secured his third classic win in 1977.
McMuppet insisted that his fellow Koppites had got it all wrong, like most other things. Like Henry Cooper knocking Muhammad Ali out in 1965 at Highbury and becoming World Heavyweight Champion, Don Revie's Leeds United winning the European Cup in 1970, and England winning the World Cup by beating Argentina 4-1 in Buenos Aries in 1978.
"Don't try to tell me about sport," an outraged McMuppet told reporters after the game. "I wrote the bloody book on it. Even though nobody would publish it. That young Oldham defender, Tom Adeyemi even told me I was wrong about Red Rum so I soon set that young sod straight. He didn't like it, but what can you do?"
McMuppet is currently helping police with their enquiries.
More as we get it.
