Manchester United supporters were today left bewildered by the disappointing attempts by Liverpool's travelling fan contingent to wind up United striker Wayne Rooney.
The Scousers - revered by the media for their natural and spontaneous wit - failed dismally in their efforts to get the sometimes wayward Rooney at it.
"I expected better than that," United fan Donald Skoob, a caretaker at Salford University told us. "The word was out that they were going to rip Rooney to bits. All we got was one chorus of 'Fat Granny shagger, he's just a fat granny shagger...' and that was it. It kind of left us wanting more, but alas, it wasn't to be."
So, all in all, a bit of an anticlimax. Like this article, really.
More as we get it.
