I hate losing to Manchester United. I don’t care if it’s at Anfield or at Old Trafford. I would rather beat Manchester United than beat Everton any day of the week. Maybe it’s because I’m not a Scouser or because I’m not from Liverpool, but it’s always the Manchester United games that get my blood pumping.
In light of last Sunday’s “glorious failure,” I thought that I would remind myself of some of my favorite Liverpool – Manchester United games from the last few years to ease the pain of the past few days (and a season where we have yet to record a league win). Nothing beats watching a replay of Liverpool thrashing Manchester United, except for watching it live of course.
The Hillsborough Independent Panel Report was released today. We have the document in its entirity here on the site for you to read and sift through at your own pace. It’s long (305 pages), comprehensive and revealing.
I’ll be frank: we need something to lighten the mood. The last few weeks haven’t exactly been hunky dory. They’ve been whatever the opposite of hunky dory is. (Dunky hory? That sounds dirty.) We, the Liverpool family, are in dire need of a large dose of smile, stat. As we all know, there is one thing in the world that unequivocally makes people happy: a good head of hair.
So forget the last three Premier League matches happened and reminisce on legends of old, look back at so-so players of not so long ago, and analyze a current fledgling who all have some seriously entertaining hair.
The willing savior plays scapegoat and we should all be thankful.

As the build up to the tomorrow’s FA Cup Final against Chelsea continues, here is a look back at Liverpool’s previous seven victories in the world’s oldest sporting cup competition.
The FA Cup was first held in 1871–72. Entry to the cup is open to all teams who compete in the Premier League, the Football League and in steps one to five of the FA National League System, as well as selected teams in step six. This provides the magic of the FA cup as the largest clubs in England and Wales can be drawn against amateur village teams. The tournament has become known for the possibility for “minnows” (underdogs) from the lower divisions to become “giant-killers” by eliminating top clubs from the tournament and even theoretically winning the Cup, although lower division teams rarely progress beyond the early stages.
