The Sandon

There seems to be a certain amount of confusion over what went on in The Sandon public house on Saturday afternoon after Liverpool played Middlesbrough. What we know is that Tom Hicks Jnr visited The Sandon, was heckled by Liverpool supporters and left before the situation spiralled out of control.

There is nothing in the known facts the SOS, Liverpool Supporters Union, has any desire to condemn. If thousands of supporters are prepared to stand en masse in the Kop and protest against the current ownership then it should go without saying some, if not most, would be prepared to make these points to its public face given a rare opportunity.

Physical violence towards individuals is something which we will not condone, yet there is no evidence this occurred here. Indeed, Mr Hicks Jnr appears to have been treated for the most part with distance and disdain, not wholly unlike the treatment of Liverpool supporters by Hicks and Gillett and all those connected with them over the last twelve months.
