Sir Alex Ferguson, always a man with a giant heart, has offered Liverpool F.C. a lifeline, he wants them to become United's second team.
Roy Hodgson, good mate of Fergie, also thinks it's a great idea because he personally feels that Liverpool first-teamers are a bunch of over-paid wasters and becoming Man Utd II, would do them a world of good.
Sir Alex needs a good second team and some of the rubbish that Liverpool have been playing this year could actually be good enough to win the reserve team competition and as everybody knows, Sir Alex wants to win everything.
Liverpool fans are not quite of the same opinion and the recent suicidal rate of Scousers jumping into their favourite river, the Mersey, singing their favourite evergreen, "You'll never walk alone" has increased three fold.
United fans think the idea is awesome, having Stephen Gerrard play alonside his old mate and dedicated reserve, born Scouser, Michael Owen, would be a certainty for the title.
As for the younger United players, they are all being lent out to lesser clubs on loan to get some first team experience. Liverpool players don't need that because they're never going to be good enough anyway!
Scouser, Wayne Rooney, thinks the idea is also superb and hopes his terrible run of form will continue, he'll then be dropped and can join his Scouser mates in the reserve team, where he really would feel at home. Scousers and Mancs just don't mix!
