Pete Price is a what?

It's the football banner that could never make the headlines and yet it's the only one ever to truly unite Reds and Blues....

Published on May 25th 2007.


Pete Price is a what?

Of all the spectacular and amusing banners that have been displayed by Liverpool and AC Milan fans, one has provoked a sharp intake of breath wherever in the world it has been seen.

Everywhere except, that is, in Liverpool.

The subject of the banner is a radio personality whose existence few outside the city will be aware of.

And the word used to describe him is that four-letter one generally regarded as the most reprehensible of all.

For those of a sensitive disposition, we are not going to wave it under your nose. But if you want to see what we're going on about - and in all its offending word - click the image to reveal.

“What kind of monster must this man, this Pete Price, be?” the innocent people of Istanbul might have thought when the flag, lovingly made in Netherley and transported to Turkey, was first unfurled back in May 2005.

Some might think that the king of the airwaves would be deeply hurt by this most very public of insults. But they could not be more wrong. Indeed, Pricey took the assertion as such a compliment that he went out of his way to autograph the banner and, after his initial astonishment, when he and viewers around the world simultaneously spotted it on the BBC news, even tried to buy it.

But it is not for sale. Indeed it is only brought out on very special occasions and has spent this week basking in the Greek sunshine.

“You've got to see the funny side,” bravely remarked the taxi drivers' favourite who works at Radio City. The message is apparently the screensaver on computers in the newsroom there, Pricey told Liverpool Confidential, but he could not say if there were plans to emblazon it on the windows of the Radio City Tower.

However the banner's creators couldn't let it lie. They have added one little word and all-new, for 2007, the legendary legend now reads: Pete Price is is still a c*** .

Consider yourself told.

Posters on bluekipper.com get some riotous responses off Pricey when they phone up with their well thought out wind ups! Still I do agree with the banner even if it was made by a RS!!!

SalMay 23rd 2007.

AnonymousMay 23rd 2007.

SalMay 23rd 2007.

Do you want to join the fan club too?

paul burrowsMay 23rd 2007.

I can think of a few choice banners to make in honour of the Greek police after last night. A bad, miserable deal for everyone

AnonymousMay 23rd 2007.

ok, yes we need more Pete Price fans!

SalMay 23rd 2007.

I listen everynight to Pete.

EJ RuaneMay 23rd 2007.

Pete Price may well be a c***, but I feel it's a little harsh to single him out.I mean, every single local DJ I've ever heard...EVER, sounded like a c*** to me.PS: And all the one's on national radio too.

SalMay 23rd 2007.

oh yes when he goes off on one, ha ha

Carol TurnerMay 23rd 2007.

AnonymousMay 23rd 2007.

salMay 23rd 2007.

Carol TurnerMay 23rd 2007.

salMay 23rd 2007.

Lets start a Pete Price fan club!

SalMay 23rd 2007.

I like him too!

merseygirlMay 23rd 2007.

I wish Pete Price would LISTEN to what callers are saying. He often gets it wrong and then shouts at the poor caller. However, apart from this and annoying 'dead air' he is very entertaining and compassionate.

SalMay 23rd 2007.

I hope we do too, he is popular though.

AnonymousMay 23rd 2007.

thats 3 of us now, I hope we get some more ..

roger pMay 23rd 2007.

Glad to see this at last after hearing so much about it. Made me smile!

terry bubblesMay 23rd 2007.

SalMay 23rd 2007.
