ABOUT 11 years ago during my holiday in Britain, Liverpool was to play Manchester United at Anfield. Being a fan of the most decorated soccer club in British history, I decided that I would have a punt on the game and walked into one sports-betting establishment to place a small wager on Liverpool winning the game 3 to 2.
It was a storming match which saw Liverpool claw back to level the score at 2-2. In the dying minutes of the game, Jamie Carragher had an opportunity to head in the winner but sadly he missed and the game ended in a draw. Had he scored, which would have been a minor miracle considering his goal-scoring record, a chunk of my holiday would have been paid for.
