What with all the admonishment from the trainers, the captains and all the what-nots today is definitely the day the Teddy Bears have their picnic.
Manchester United not only meeting Liverpool at Anfield in a Cup game, but it shadowed awe by the pale cast of the Suarez-Evra affair. Anything can happen, but we can but hope that the discipline of the English fans as well as the threats hanging over the teams will produce a scintillating game in the spirit of Rugby.
One suspects that all the hype and build up with a world of fans and otherwise watching will end up not with a bang but a wimper.
