    Making trivial off the cuff remarks about the Munich Air Disaster and Hillsborough really mark you out as an individual with all the depth of a rain puddle.
    As for your opinions about the Suarez -Evra affair you have accepted a character assassination based on an interpretation of events that’s been further soured by a hypocritical media frenzy that you have swallowed hook line and sinker.
    Whoever wins today at the least the supporters of both clubs have a bit more integrity about them than you do.

    Nomatter what vile songs are sung in the name of these two teams, I don’t think anything will shift the Old Firm from the bottom in terms of “inappropriate” songs. One side sings songs in support of terrorism while the other side sings songs in praise of genocide. Need I say more.

    Will it ever be possible to read an article on 200% about Liverpool or Man Utd without constant reference to ‘Suarez affair’ and how those who did not necessarily agree with the verdict are mentally challenge, etc?

    I have to say that this article seems to be jumping on a bandwagon here. The vast majority of Liverpool and Manchester United fans are appalled by songs about Hillsborough and Munich.

    I am a Liverpool fan and have read 200% for a few years and have never commented. I am considering whether to contnue reading in future. I feel insulted at being labelled mentally challenged for not believing a particular narrative regarding the Suarez-Evra affair that the site seems to be subscribing to. I am not mentally challenged. The assertion that I am stupid because I have reservations regarding the decision made by the FA smacks of exactly the kind of tribalism that this article is supposedly attacking.

    I don’t support either team but agree “200%” with the above.

    As I have never commented, I must say that the vast majority of the articles on here are fantastic, so keep up the (mostly) good work.
