The Liverpool fan base is unlike any other in England. Kopites are more fierce, more creative and more of a family than any other group of supporters in the land. Despite constant accusations of being ‘unbearables’ (now a badge of honour for Reds), Liverpool fans have consistently brought the brand of support to England that other teams’ followers pine for when they see videos of Borussia Dortmund, Boca Juniors and the like. One of the best examples of the Reds’ unique support is Boss Night, a regular event for Kopites to come together and sing our songs, hosted by local musicians. The group recently held a kids Boss Night and the video has been doing the rounds on Twitter, proving how special it is to be a Liverpool fan.

The kids are alright indeed. The video shows a bunch of young reds bouncing away and singing along to the Divock Origi song; a chant which pays homage to his key goals against Everton and Barcelona last season.
There’s no other club in the country with such a committed and united fan base right now. The Kids Boss Night was just the latest example of the fervour with which Kopites support their team. This isn’t a weekend thing for us, this is an every minute of every day thing. To be a Liverpool supporter isn’t to watch the games it’s a way of life, even to the extent that kids are spending their spare time meeting up to sing about their favourite players. It is fanatical.
With the Reds flying high at the top of the table, the atmosphere around the ground is deafening. You need only look back at the second leg of the Champions League semi final against Barcelona to see how special the Liverpool support is. Kopites make a difference, they’re a 12th man. The old adage says that Anfield is our Church, if this is true then Boss Nights are our choir practice.
