Poor Display But Reds Win First of Manchester FA Cup Double Header

Avid Liverpool fan and FA chief executive Brian Barwick, seen biting his nails during the final 15 minutes, has just presented the much coveted FA Youth Cup trophy to Liverpool in Manchester City's City of Manchester Stadium. Despite losing by two goals to nil, Miki Roque's third at Anfield and very sound Hamann-esque defensive display in the second half finally sealed the game. Next up is Liverpool vs Chelsea for a spot in the real FA Cup Final, playing tomorrow evening just across Manchester at Old Trafford (better than going all the way to Birmingham). I've already said I'm confident Liverpool will triumph and then go on to lift the trophy, a la the Champions' League last year.
