Manchester United's official website ManchesterUtd.com could face a police investigation after posting how to say sick Liverpool taunts in Spanish, specifically aimed at the new Spanish players and manager. This is seen as extremely irresponsible especially in the face of relationships between the two sets of fans being tense at the best of times, and there has often been violence after games.
 

The article appears on the club's official website under the section Fanzone and is billed as "Fanzone presents 'Spanish Scouse-Baiting' as Benitez's Hispanic Liverpool visit Old Trafford".

The article then goes on to explain the Spanish translations for some of the sickest chants directed at Liverpool supporters over the years - including "Build a bonfire, build a bonfire, put the Scousers on the top", "You find a dead rat and you think it's a treat, in your Liverpool slums" and "Feed the Scousers. Let them know it's Christmas time."

Alongside each English chant and Spanish translation is a picture of Rafael Benitez, Xabi Alonso, Luis Garcia and Josemi - implying that it is these four who should be targeted with abuse on Monday night.

Rest of article here

This just goes to show how low the Manchester United crowd will go to stir up a bit of publicity and actually encourage hatred, it is very unlikely you would see anything like this pop up on any of the other Premiership teams official sites. For singling out the Spanish players and staff this almost borders on racism, and to actually hurl abuse at the people of Liverpool shows how ignorant these people really are when you consider they now have a player from Liverpool in the form of Wayne Rooney. This is just very silly and dangerous indeed.

Yeah most chants are pretty funny (I have a dark sense of humour) but the people at their official site should know better. Plus, take into account that chant when they've got a scouser playing for them, it's retarded. lol
The ignorant fools...
