Had the annual match, between Manchester United fans and Liverpool fans, today The Mall Complex, Longford Town, 28.12.2017. The second game, after its first inaugural game in 2016, has become an annual match, not just pool and united fans, various other fans, joined either united or pool teams. United and Pool fans, having majority fans in Longford Town. The game itself as the heading says, its a funny auld game football. United fans won 4-3, against all the odds. In the warm up, the pool fans had more than enough to start game. United started the game, and for ten mins or more, with ten men only, two united fans, who came to watch, thought, there was enough, had to go home, and get there gear to play. The game itself Pool started out very brightly, and after twenty mins opened the scoring with a cracker of a goal from Gerard Foudy. It was a case of how many after that in the first half, they missed several guilt edged chances, with both, over playing it, and just missing sitters. United down and not out, never lost there heads kept playing there game, and got an equaliser, 1 - 1 at half time. In the second half, Pool fans, moved one of there best players, up front, on the back of chances missed, and it certainly worked initially, scoring almost instantly in second half. After several misses, Mark Flynn finally broke his duct, and actually scored to his own surprise. pool 3-1 one up, you would think that was it, but, not everybody was at the races in the game. From both sides, from pictures you can see the ground they were playing on, bit frosty, the ball was skipping that bit faster, and was a let down in touches for some that normally would be very solid in first touches. The stand out player, both sides agree was Stephen Norton. Box to box, full of energy, kept the faith, and with the help Lady Luck, United Fans 'Scums' came back in it and not only that went on to win it. Even Ollie Mc Nerney will admit it wasn't his day, not only getting a yellow and giving penalty away, he made some goal scoring mistakes, the goalkeeper for Pool fan's 'Kopout's'. But United, 'they still had to be scored, the chances, and that they did the scums, to make it 2 in a row, much to pool fans dismay. The cup belongs to united for another year, and the bragging rites.
