The scenes that followed United`s winner, whereby Rio Ferdinand was struck by a missile from the crowd, provided an unsavoury ending to a classic fixture.
With blood streaming from a cut just above his eye, Rio can, in some ways, be thankful that the idiot who threw the missile didn`t aim half an inch lower.
Here at Vital Manchester United, we sincerely hope that the cowardly person who threw the missile is apprehended by the law and given the punishment he deserves.
