Brave/daft Manchester United fans unveil ’19 times’ banner at Anfield

Banner wars

Manchester United supporters infiltrated Anfield before Liverpool’s match against Spurs on Sunday to unveil a banner celebrating overtaking their rivals’ record number of league titles.

As the Anfield faithful launched into their pre-match chorus of You’ll Never Walk Alone, the undercover Red Devils hung a banner reading “MUFC 19 TIMES” in the Anfield Road End.

The pranksters, from the Red Issue fanzine, had a getaway driver waiting and exited the ground sharpish. United fans had also taken up positions in other parts of Anfield to capture photographic evidence of their efforts.

It’s not clear how long the banner was allowed to stay in position before being spotted by Reds fans.

The banner has now been praised by Sir Alex Ferguson.

    Hah, yeah good man there John. 12 titles in 18 years isn’t quick enough for you? You’re record is gone. Consigned to the rubbish bin of history. But who knows, maybe you won’t have to wait another 21 years to win a title. United will probably have another 12 by that stage anyway 😀
