Superstitions / Rituals

We all know that by wearing a lucky pair of pants we'll have absolutely no impact on a bunch of men who don't know us kicking a ball around. But that doesn't stop us.

So anyone have any particularly good or ridiculous ones?

Not for about 20 years.

But I used to religiously wear my "lucky Liverpool socks" whenever we played. Maybe even into the 2000s.

This season I haven't taken part in the (relevant) prediction thread or looked at it until after the game. It's definitely working

I find that if i watch the replay (because of the time difference here) we have generally dropped points. So i watch them all live now, no matter how much it fucks up my sleep.

During the Champions League run of 2004-05, I used to head over from work to watch the matches with some friends at a local pub here in Portland, Oregon. Every time I ate the curry and chips there, we never lost. I was running a bit late the day of the final and arrived just as Maldini scored the first. The place was packed, so by the time I got my order in and finally got my plate, Milan were up by three and the Milan fans were jeering everyone in red. I had faith and tucked in to my curry and chips and the rest is history.

Not wishing to tempt fate and having a vague belief that these rituals have a single season shelf life, I retired the ritual then and there.

I had quite a long run of doing pre-match Sing Fong curry and chips and us bagging wins in the early 2000s. I'm not sure I'd have bought into it had it been an Everpool burger

Lol ... I have replaced my old bad ones like must drink beer or team will not win with Work Out, meditate and feel strong or team not win, both equally ridiculous

I am working out and meditating for 14 days straight now

I started these rituals at the beginning of the season. Mine goes like this....

A drink in each half, normally a strong beer the likes of Chimay. Not be opened before the kick off is taken in each half. Then I say "Play well and make us proud" to the team and take the first sip. Drinking periodically through each half, ensuring I always have enough drink to celebrate goals and say "play well" to each sub that comes on

I never look at the clock when the opposition have the ball. Also avert my eyes when the camera is on the opposition's manager (I have also stopped verbally abusing them, bad kharma)

Other than that. I have to have sex or failing that crack a wank on each and every match before the game kicks off

Seems like a winning combination. Simples init.

All that season I faithfully drank from my LFC mug, win, lose or draw. In the CL final, I drank from it as we shipped those 3 goals. At half time I blamed the mug and sulked as I switched to a glass and the rest is history. Quite obviously the mug was cursed, so I didn't drink out of it again, on game day, for the whole of the next season.

So to summarise, you have a wank before every game

I have to wear the current home shirt for home games and drink beer. If I have a soft drink or alcohol free beer, we draw... Only time I've missed the home game this season was the City one. Pure coincidence but I can't help but blame the ritual...

Away games is tougher as I don't buy the away shirts. Drinking or not doesn't seem to make any difference either.

I used to wear home shirt and track pants, drink IPA for every European tie in 2005 and come the final I was cursing the pants thinking I must have put a different pair on... the missus insisted they were the right ones and I kept them on. Thank fuck for that! :-)

This thread really makes me feel like I’m not pulling my weight.

I tried to use the magic 8 ball for predictions for a while, but the only game it got right was Barca away.



I watch all of our League matches via streams, but that’s technically not a superstition per se.........

Gerry and the pacemakers ..

Ferry cross the mersey
You'll never walk alone

My only one is depending on who I go the game with, certain people have to sit to my left, some to the right based on previous games/moments we've shared.
