I don't usually talk things non West Ham here, but there's a great reaction to the shocking scenes at Old Trafford today on the Guardian website.  I think the reason I care is that their behaviour is so detrimental to a game that has faced many challenges of late, and this above the law and beyond reproach behaviour is tarnishing a sport that had to work so hard to recover from the state it was in years ago.

No doubt Liverpool's response will be to wear more Suarez T-shirts and create a greater siege mentality, the FA will bark but not bite and thousands of kids playing football in the park will think that sportsmanship is a thing of the past.  Today really was a sad for football, and I just don't see enough soul searching coming out of Anfield to redeem it.
