FA asks Liverpool to explain show of support for convicted criminal•


The Football Association is to write to Liverpool for an explanation into the orchestrated support shown for the jailed fan Michael Shields during Monday's 0-0 draw with West Ham United at Anfield.

Officials at Soho Square are considering whether to bring disciplinary charges after taking exception at the manner in which Liverpool have publicly backed a man who has been sentenced to 10 years in prison for the attempted murder of a Bulgarian waiter, Martin Georgiev, in May 2005.

Another Liverpool fan admitted being responsible for the crime before later retracting his confession and Shields' case will go before a high court review tomorrow. The FA, however, is alarmed that Liverpool should openly use a live televised game to try to influence the matter.

Rafael Benítez's players wore T-shirts bearing the slogan Free Michael Now during their pre-match warm-up and the actress Sue Johnston was invited on to the pitch with Shields' parents to make a speech calling for the justice secretary, Jack Straw, to "do the right thing".

A mosaic was held up in the Kop spelling out Free Michael Now and the match-day programme contained an article declaring the 22-year-old's innocence. "Liverpool fan Michael Shields should be here at Anfield for tonight's game," it began. "Instead, he will be sitting in a prison cell."

The FA's concern is linked to the recent disciplinary case against the Ipswich midfielder David Norris for supporting the former Plymouth Argyle goalkeeper Luke McCormick. Norris had been charged with improper conduct after making a handcuffs gesture in dedication to McCormick, who had been sentenced to seven years in prison for causing the death by dangerous driving of two young brothers.

The FA's disciplinary department fined Norris £5,000 and is alarmed that Liverpool should also publicly back someone convicted of a serious crime and, in the process, open themselves to allegations of playing judge and jury.

The matter became a subject of controversy on radio phone-ins yesterday and the FA will, at the very least, remind Liverpool that it does not believe it is the club's role to take on such issues. "We are not comfortable about this," one source told the Guardian.

There is also an element of concern as Liverpool, according to the FA, had not informed the authorities of their plans. In 1997, their then striker Robbie Fowler was fined 2,000 Swiss francs by Uefa for revealing a T-shirt expressing his support for the city's sacked dock workers.


In light of this I would be interested to know what the FA would think about the two minute's silence at the Deva for the murdered drug dealer!!!

To be honest, I don't think the FA should get involved in things like this at all. It has nothing to do with football.

Jesus H Christ.

And they wonder why the rest of the country despises them.

Candle lighting at EVERY opportunity.

Yet to see a REAL apology come out of Anfield for the Italians.

Oh yes,that was Chelsea,wasn't it?

SCUM.

Well said

He has been CONVICTED of Attempted Murder and yet they still show support.

Just because he SAYS he never done it, does not mean he is innocent.

Horrible club, horrible fans.

To be fair, without wanting to come across as a "Scouse sympathiser" again, going by the evidence I've read it seems pretty likely the lad is innocent. It's all very well people spouting some moral outrage because they hate a football club, or a City full of people (which in itself is quite silly), but lets not forget this is a 21 year old lad we're talking about here. It was without doubt a bit of a Kangaroo Court that convicted him. He passed a lie-detector test last year, which scientists still say are 99% accurate, and I doubt he has the brains to know how to beat one, let alone actually pull it off. Another man has since confessed to carrying out the attack. The Bulgarian President even said he wouldn't object to Shields being set free. This lad's family have been through hell and are just trying to get their son home, wouldn't you do everything within your power to free him if he were your flesh and blood?

What I don't get is why now after all this time has the club made a stand against his
conviction ? Why not sooner if they felt this way... seems strange to wait so long.

All very good Ron,but the fact is a chicken ran over in Merseyside,would be given a fortnight of vigils and a 3 mile scarf.

Absolutely agree with you, just find it hard not to have sympathy with the lad and his family. Imagine if it were one of your mates or your family it had happened to.

Were the famous lovable rogues on the Kop suggesting that Sankey should simply swap places with Shields?

You know,the same as they did with Chelsea fans in Belgium?All the scousers were at home that night m'lord.

Horrible,horrible club in a horrible,horrible place.Self pitying bastards.

Imo Sankey was brought in to the equation by Shields family/friends in the hope that they would drop the case.

He never had any intention of giving a statement.

The Shields family didn't even know Sankey apparently. Anyway these are all moot points, the thing that swayed me was the lie-detector test. Although they are not admissible, scientists still insist that very few people can beat a polygraph. It's pretty hard to argue with, and should be enough for the average person to at least be in doubt of his guilt.

That's those not swayed completely by Scouse hatred of course wink.gif
