Expert at trolling, thoroughly expected that you weren't able to figure out what Sir Alex wanted. The intention was not to loose. Liverpool for the taking? Why? Because they got thrashed by Spurs? A really flawed football logic, though not entirely unexpected. With United leaking goals like a faucet, solidity at the back was paramount.
A draw was a fair result, but I like the fact that you think otherwise, because it shows my reasoning is correct.
