Historic divides fuel Liverpool, Man Utd rivalry

  Guardianng   Today, 10:09 a.m.

United are three points clear of second-placed Liverpool ahead of this weekend’s showdown, making it the first time the Old Trafford outfit have been top at this stage of a season since Alex Ferguson’s title-winning farewell campaign in 2013.While both teams play in red and come from cities separated by just 31 miles, beneath the superficial similarities lies a bitter feud. But the friendly rivalry had turned nasty by the late 1970s as hooligan gangs fought bloody battles, while United were sprayed with tear gas by a Liverpool fan when they stepped off the coach before a match at Anfield in 1986.There has not been a transfer between the clubs since Phil Chisnall moved from United to Liverpool in 1964.The enmity plumbed new depths when Liverpool striker Luis Suarez was suspended for eight games after racially abusing United’s Patrice Evra in 2011. Ferguson did more than most to light the fuse, complaining that visiting managers left Anfield “choking on their own vomit” after an acrimonious 1988 clash and crowing that he had made it his aim to “knock Liverpool from their perch” when he arrived in Manchester. Arms race Liverpool enjoyed one of English football’s most dominant periods from the 1970s until 1990, a golden era in which they won 11 of their 19 league titles, lifted the FA Cup three times and won the League Cup in four successive years. Liverpool managers were just as susceptible to the passion play, with Rafael Benitez infamously embarking on a heated press conference rant in 2009 about the “facts” that showed Ferguson and United were given favourable treatment by the referees and the governing bodies. Between 1992 and 2013, United were crowned champions 13 times, surpassing Liverpool as they took the club’s overall haul to 20 English titles. But the rivalry has often turned toxic, with Liverpool fans chanting about the Munich crash and their United counterparts making sick songs about the 1989 Hillsborough disaster that killed 96 Reds supporters. When the Beatles took the charts by storm in the 1960s, Liverpudlians trumpeted Merseybeat as the country’s greatest pop export, a boast Mancunians used themselves 20 years later when their city produced touchstone bands such as the Smiths, the Stone Roses and the Happy Mondays.

“From the country’s 30-month civil war, which ended on Jan. 15, 1970, to the fight against terrorism, banditry and other emerging violent crimes, many servicemen have paid the supreme price for our safety, peace and unity,” Akpanudoedehe said.

”“The time has come for the Federal Government to stop the pretence, change strategy, seek help from our friends and confront the urgency of the internal insecurity situation in Nigeria with every weaponry at its disposal to stop the killing, free all hostages and improve the physical security of our country for all Nigerians,” Wike said. , therefore, also raises the need for all of us to be worried by the deteriorating security situation across the country and restate the call on the Federal Government to do everything necessary to bring the security threat by Boko Haram and armed bandits to a decisive end in the shortest time possible.

99% Of Buhari’s Appointments Not Based On Merit — Junaid

  Naijanews   Yesterday, 7:51 p.m.

The former lawmaker said the popular opinion that no country ever survives two civil wars is false, adding that many countries, including the United Kingdom, have witnessed more than one civil war. I have to admit that the core issue he raised about nepotism is real and of course marginalisation of some certain sections of the country is real and that nepotism is in favour of people that are close to Buhari, particularly his friends, cronies, relations and in-laws. He said, “Anybody who tells you that a nation cannot have more than one civil war is ignorant of history. If there is no justice, no matter how much you pray or no matter how much you try to convolute, the real reasons for the war will rear its ugly head and you will see yourself walking into another disaster.”  while reacting to Kukah’s statement said Buhari’s nepotism is not purely based on religion or tribe but rather on nepotism. Kukah in his message had said, “Every honest Nigerian knows that there is no way any non-Northern Muslim President could have done a fraction of what President Buhari has done by his nepotism and got away with it. ”“I know some otherwise respectable generals who say that no country has undergone civil war more than once. But going through a civil war more than once is not something to be proud of.
