Manchester United Vs. Liverpool, 2012 Premier League: Scholes Nearly Makes Things Interesting, Doesn't

Wayne Rooney tries to exert his influence on the Manchester United vs. Liverpool match, taking a pop from range against Pepe Reina's goal. It's all a bit sad though, trundling well wide of the left post before nestling comfortably against an advertising hoarding. To be honest, this game's been completely awful. When the high point of the day so far is the lack of a handshake between two people who hate each other, something's gone horribly wrong.

In the corresponding fixture last year, Dimitar Berbatov did this:

If only we had some Berbarotica to amuse us today.

With that said, United nearly go on the scoresheet, and it's all from a Ryan Giggs special. The 70-year-old winger obliterates Glen Johnson on the left and crosses to a free, equally old Paul Scholes. Scholes, however, wants no part of this scoring business, flicking a header straight at the goalkeeper. No goals for us.
