Sports Letters: Myth and the misunderstood
Again, Foster argues that the Kop's power was always 'part mythical'. Yet this is true of the best institutions generally: the incredible track record of the Royal Navy, for instance, was partly due to the initimidating myth which enveloped it. In his final paragraph Foster misunderstands the causality: the Kop's fame was not owed to the team, they grew famous together in the Sixties. And he invites ridicule by claiming 'these (other Kops) were at least the equal of Anfield's'. Valley Parade - where?
