It’s five and a half weeks since Liverpool became Champions of Europe for the sixth time by beating Tottenham in Madrid but the jubilation of Reds fans shows no sign of letting up.

And why should it? Jurgen Klopp‘s men produced one of the club’s greatest ever seasons by responding to the disappointment of somehow not ending the 29-year wait for the holy grail of a league title despite racking up a record tally of 97 points by lifting the most prestigious prize in club football, the European Cup.

Amongst some in the game, there is an acceptance the Reds’ consistent excellence in 2018/19 deserved some silverware, indeed in the aftermath of the triumph in Madrid even BT sport commentator and former Everton striker Gary Lineker described the win as a “meritorious award for an outstanding season”, while fellow pundit and former Manchester United skipper Rio Ferdinand, when asked if he was ‘pleased’ for Liverpool, said simply: “They deserve it”.

Other observers, including those with no particular affection for Liverpool as a club or a city, spoke as the season wore on of how the approach and dynamism Klopp’s side showed found them admiring and enjoying the Reds’ contribution to the season, almost in spite of themselves. But not everyone felt the same way..

In the final few months of the season, some fans of other clubs – notably on social media – whined about how “unbearable” Liverpool supporters would be if they won a trophy.

Football fans celebrating their team achieving success? The very idea! Fans of any other club would of course would keep it very quiet and never mention it…

So in the spirit of giving people what they want, ever since Madrid some Liverpool fans have been taking great delight in being “unbearable” and reminding all and sundry their team is now six-times Champions of Europe.

There have been flags and tweets from all over the world using the hashtag #OperationUnbearable – which we round up at the foot of this article – but this latest effort is perhaps the best yet as it takes it right up into the skies.

Anfield season ticket holder Ste Evans, an advertising executive with Reach plc, decided to suprise his dad David for his 60th birthday with a tandem skydive – and couldn’t resist giving a cheeky six finger salute from 15,000 feet above the earth!



Six times salute from Ste Evans at 15,000 feet!

Ste said: “He’s previously done bungee jumps, scuba diving and racing sports cars so skydiving was the last one to tick off the list.

“I’ve always been a bit scared of heights to be honest so regretted agreeing to jump until the day but I went through with it and absolutely loved it.



“It was an incredible experience, the instructors were great and it was an amazing day, so much fun and I just couldn’t resist giving it the ‘6 times’ – Operation Unbearable reaches 15,000 feet!”
