It's all square at halftime at Old Trafford, and Manchester United vs. Liverpool has been something of a disappointment so far. And when I say 'something of a disappointment' I mean 'totally bloody atrocious'. The main point of the match is, unsurprisingly, the eight-game ban Luis Suarez incurred for the racial abuse of Patrice Evra. The Uruguayan has returned to the lineup for Liverpool and kicked off yet another stir by refusing to shake the United captain's hand, and if you think we're paying too much attention to Suarez when there's football on, you haven't been watching the game.
To summarise: Glen Johnson is dangerous, Antonio Valencia is dangerous, Paul Scholes should have scored and Luis Suarez nearly went through one and one only to be dispossessed by Rio Ferdinand with a tackle for which the Uruguayan demanded a red card. He didn't get one, much to everyone's amusement. Hopefully the game gets better in the second half, because it's been abysmal so far.
