Liverpool fans the "worst supporters in Europe"

That's not my opinion, that's what UEFA say.

Steven Gerrard defended the conduct of Liverpool fans in last month's European Cup final after UEFA had described them as "the worst supporters in Europe".

Gerrard said that Liverpool fans had been following their team around Europe for years without any trouble, conveniently forgetting to mention the Heysel stadium disaster of 1985. After a wall had been pushed over, killing 39 Juventus fans, English teams were banned from European competition for five years, throwing English football back into the dark ages. Players moved abroad to play at the highest level and other perfectly innocent teams were denied access to the world's most prestigious club competitions.

Just thought I'd mention it.
