A few Manchester United fans managed to pull off the impossible at Anfield on Sunday as they unveiled a banner which read "M.U.F.C 19 times" inside the ground of bitter rivals Liverpool.

Saturday's 1-1 draw at Blackburn Rovers was enough to give United a record-breaking 19th top flight title, eclipsing Liverpool's total of 18, and the club's supporters went to great lengths to ensure those at Anfield were fully aware of that fact.

Here's the story as told to the Red Issue fanzine by one of the lads who pulled of this fantastic prank.

"We'd been planning this for years and i'm buzzin it's come off. We'd gotten 2 tickets in the Anfield upper and got the banner made on Friday. As we walked up towards the ground i had the biggest fuckin grin on me head knowing we were about to pull it off. My only worry was not getting in with it. I shouldn't have worried. A few beers on the concourse and we waited for YNWA to start as that was our signal to go. We walked down to the front of the teir and unfurled it. We had to hold it up cos there was nothing to tie it onto and it was up for for roughly 40 seconds before i got launched by the stewards. A bit of spit and that was all. It was a fuckin scouse slag that spat at me too i think

"Fair play to the Spurs fans who were buzzin and we threw it down into their end. Afterwards we walked round the ground and then had a couple of pints near Goodison with an Everton lad my mate knew and got a call saying their lads were looking for us. Not suprising really is it!

"All in all we had a result and believe me it happened and any scouser who says that picture isn't for real then they're blagging.

"MUFC 19 TIMES!"
