Football fans debate about a lot of things in the current state of the game but one thing that almost all supporters universally hate are half-and-half scarves. You always see them being sold outside of the stadiums, but you’ll be hard-pressed to find a club selling them as official merchandise. Liverpool have that covered now though as it has been revealed via their official retail Twitter account that a half-and-half scarf of red and blue has been made for the club’s UEFA Super Cup showdown against Chelsea on Wednesday. Unsurprisingly, there are a lot of Liverpool fans on Twitter who are not happy with this decision by the club. It’s bad enough when someone who has no affiliation with the club is trying to flog scarves like this but when a decision is made somewhere that deems it acceptable to sell them as official merchandise, it really boggles the mind. Are clubs really that out of touch with their fans now? Hopefully this does not become common across the country.
And, its on to Istanbul for the 2019 #SuperCup ????
