If you were wondering why the Liverpool fans were throwing socks onto the Goodison Park pitch last night, the guessing game is over.

The Reds that turned up at their rivals ground with the socks ready were mocking the plan for Everton to move to a new stadium in Kirby.

Residents of Kirby have been labelled ‘sock-robbers’ over the years as a technique of burglary is said to be regular there – placing socks over the hands to avoid leaving any fingerprints.

It all started out as a joke on an internet forum, but spread to a lot of those with tickets – a lot of whom were heard chanting “sock robbers!” at their rivals supporters.
