The climax to Saturday's non-event was no more than the "Little Pea" peeing all the red half of Liverpool off by entering the arena. He then shot in a pea off of his head and proved to all of the world that he is a master-class "Pea-shooter".
Up till this moment both teams looked like they had nothing to lose and didn't even want to lose that either. A disastrous game of kick and rush which reminded the fans and global TV spectators of the bad old days of English football when Joe Jordan and Nat Lofthouse kicked the crap out of everything around them whilst jumping for long balls and getting nowhere.
Compared to FC Barcelona; Liverpool and Man Utd looked like their sparring partners until the Little Pea entered the arena and showed a piece of clinical, world class finishing.
Well at least Liverpool can now remain red not green (enough of that colour) with envy and United will be comforted by the fact that they held the Scousers at bay with half of their reserve team.
Their main European rivals will certainly not be "peeing" in their pants if United continue to offer "split peas" instead of whole ones. And Liverpool can continue being what they always were and still are, part of Brit "kick and Rush" (sorry Ian) history.
