Was looking forward to the manchester United - Crawley Town match all day...everyone loves an underdog FA Cup performance after all. Any semblence of anticipation was stymied in a moment when I saw who Crawley's sponsors were.
A fairly impressive marketing coup as far as the rest of the country were concerned but on Merseyside we instantly plunged into turmoil....Do we support United against a non-league club because of THAT logo.
The answer for me is yes. Totally irrational and pavlovian I know but there you have it. The rest of Liverpool felt the same (as far as I can tell). I checked twitter and #dontbuythesun is one of the top trending topics. Well done folks, Scousers should NEVER forget that vile rag twisting the knife out of pure spite.
Am so proud that you still are more likely to see USA Today being read on Merseyside than the country's most popular daily newspaper
