Imagine just how horrendous tomorrow would have been if Liverpool had won the title last season. Had Steven Gerrard not miscontrolled that pass against Chelsea and fallen over, Liverpool would be coming to Old Trafford tomorrow as the champions of England. Whatever the scoreline, nothing would stop them lauding last season’s success over us. It would have been unbearable.

As it is, they finished the season trophyless like us, and now are six places behind us in the table. Time to dig out a chant from over a decade ago to celebrate the occasion?

2001, what a laugh, three cups were won, you could buy in a caff. We’ll sing em a song, that’ll end in tears, cos they’ve not won the league for 24 years… 24 years F**K ALL, 24 years F**K ALL, 24 years F**K ALL, 24 years F**K ALL.
