Its always been thus , back in the day when Clough ran Forest when they came to Anfield it was intense. It will always be the same. Whether its United or Arsenal or Chelsea .....or lately...Citeh....it is warfare. And who would want it any other way?
Just wish that the lads would maintain the same intensity against the minnows. Every match counts. One thing that I admire about United is that they don't seem to let up or lose intensity against the lesser lights. Our Reds need to assume that same hunger.
However , Derek , I do agree with your observation of Liverpool fans. You can ( as a visiting fan ) attend a match at Anfield and not fear for your wellbeing. Perhaps we should be nastier ( I'm joking mate..lol ).
