Liverpool FC Fans Celebrate in Athens, May 2007

In May of 2007, Liverpool played its second Champions League Final against AC Milan. Liverpool fans visited the Acropolis and celebrated into the early morning in Syntagma Square. The following season, fans would become embroiled in a battle to oust their unscrupulous new owners, Tom Hicks and George Gillett. In Athens, Hicks’ son Tom Hicks Jr.–who would later tell a supporter to “Blow me fuck face. Go to hell”– joined the singing fans on the steps in Syntagma Square, his bodyguards watching at a discreet distance.
