"Just seen the Rafa and Chelski fall out stuff. Very amusing. It was a massive error for Rafa to go there and what did expect from fans who shout "murderers" during a minutes silence? Also just read Skrtel's interview where he throws his toys out of the pram foe being on the bench... Bye Martin, close the door on the way out...."

The kids will talk about that day for the rest of their lives. Well done LFC, the community & outreach stuff we do is incredible so I have to applaud the club for that.."
