A little over a week ago, I wrote about it being the twenty-fifth anniversary of Newcastle United's shocking 5-0 win over Manchester United.
It had obviously been on my mind in the days before and after I wrote the post. It was even more on mind whilst watching Liverpool's game against the Red Devils over the weekend.
The game was 3-0 at half-time and as I sat there
surprised unsurprised at the scoreline, I couldn't help but think to myself 'this is going to end up 5-0 to Liverpool, isn't it?'
And so it did.
There seems to be a 'you couldn't write that' cliché among football reporters. You see, and hear, it all the time. Yet, this is an example of that really being the case.
After switching the game off, I couldn't help but think one thing.
I should have had a bet on the score.
