Liverpool and Manchester United played in the annual FA Youth Cup on Sunday. United came back from two goals down to win, 3-2. The other final count at Anfield: three fans arrested for drunkenness, six ejected for what was likely more controlled drunkenness, and reports that a section of United fans chanted and sang about the Heysel and Hillsborough tragedies to antagonize the Liverpool side. There were also four red cards and a head-butt. There is competitive spirit, and then there is soccer in England.

Former Liverpool striker John Aldridge called the "abuse...absolutely sickening" and United officials have pledged to "deal harshly" with any identified fans who participated in the "disgraceful" songs.
