Good lineups resulted in a competitive and highly enjoyable game. In a tribute to the Liverpool - Newcastle game later in the evening, the final score was 4-3 to the Reds. Reds would have been particularly pleased as they never led throughout the match and were always chasing the game. MOTM Cedric who let the unnamed Reds player score the winning goal claimed that his act of generosity was prompted by said Reds player having had a birthday earlier in the week. Such spontaneous acts of altruism are to be encouraged and it was heartening to see his teammates loudly praise him for his contribution to world peace.
