LIVERPOOL’S season looks set to continue up until Christmas, at least as they beat Manchester United 2-0.

Having booed and hissed the club’s owners, George Gillett Jr and Tom Hicks, prior to kick-off, Liverpool hit Manchester United with desire. And beach balls. Not since the heady days of the inflatable Godzilla – and Rafa Benitez’s Waiters’ XI (Majorca ’82) – have we seen the likes.

Fernando Torres and David Ngog scored the goals; and Nemanja Vidic and Javier Mascherano provided the red cards. Says Rafael Benitez:

“For me that the team is better than people think, and it shows the character and quality that we have. I was not really angry [about the speculation surrounding his future], I was just trying to be focused on my job. The only way to change things in football is to win games.”

Says Alex Ferguson:

“The referee blew a full 4.25 seconds early and that is unacceptable. It’s a ******** disgrace.”

Well, not really. Really…
