Have Fox Soccer totally misread the mood ahead of Liverpool v Manchester United?
- September 20, 2012
The Premier League’s biggest and potentially most emotional clash this weekend comes at Anfield on Sunday as Liverpool host Manchester United in a fixture that barely needs hyping at the best of times.
Sir Alex Ferguson has repeatedly called for calm in the build-up and we can expect further messages from players and staff connected to Liverpool and Manchester United in the coming days.
Since it is Liverpool’s first home game since he Hillsborough Independent Panel report was published an emotional pre-match is expected with a tribute to those who died in the disaster planned.
Steven Gerrard and Nemanja Vidic will release 96 red balloons in tribute to the Hillsborough victims and crowd mosaics will also be displayed on three sides of Anfield.
With all that expected, Fox Soccer channel, who will be broadcasting the match in America, have, in their infinite wisdom looked to crank up the atmosphere a little with some posters on their Facebook page today.
Poor taste or just “banter”???
