DJ Spoony risks upsetting Manchester United fans by playing "You'll Never Walk Alone"

Published 2 Comments

It is fair to say, there is no love lost between Liverpool and Manchester United. The two clubs rarely see eye-to-eye and matches involving the northwest sides are some of the most highly anticipated games of the season.

"You'll Never Walk Alone" is a song that has come to define the Anfield club, but you would be hard pressed to hear the tune around Old Trafford - the same goes for Manchester City's "Blue Moon".

However, DJ Spoony - the former Radio One personality, and big Liverpool fan - decided to have a bit of 'banter' during the Rugby League: Super League Grand Final on Saturday evening, much to the displeasure of some Red Devils fans.

The former Radio Five Live presenter blasted out the Gerry & the Pacemakers classic before kick-off in the match between Leeds Rhinos and Wigan Warriors, and it received a mixed reception inside the stadium.

There were boos of disapproval from sections of the crowd, but the majority of Leeds fans were more than happy to sing along at the 'Theatre of Dreams'.

Following the game, Twitter erupted into its furor of anger and excitement. A number of Manchester United fans were quick to slam Spoony for his actions, but others were able to see the funny side. Liverpool fans, on the other hand, were delighted. 




Football, for the fans, should be all about having a laugh and this move from the former '606' host is the latest in an ongoing battle between the two most successful clubs in England. 

Who can forget when United fans unveiled a banner saying 'M.U.F.C 19 times' at Anfield before Liverpool's game with Tottenham Hotspur?

It's easy to understand why some fans got offended, but really, it was just a bit of fun. It wasn't even a Manchester United game.

Was DJ Spoony wrong to play "You'll Never Walk Alone" at Old Trafford or do you think it was funny? Have your say in the comments section below!
