‘Pipe down’ – Ex-Liverpool star ridicules Man Utd fans annoyed by ‘biggest club’ tweet

Posted by

David Speedie has called out Manchester United fans annoyed by his prior tweet commemorating the 30-year anniversary of his signing for Liverpool Football Club.

The 61-year-old enjoyed a brief stay in Merseyside under the management of Reds legend Kenny Dalglish, describing the Merseyside-based outfit as the ‘biggest club in British football’.

The Scotsman was the then manager’s final signing before resigning in 1991, remembered well for scoring in his debut against Manchester United before following up with a double in the Merseyside derby in his first Anfield appearance in the famous red shirt.

When discussing the ‘biggest club’ in England, it’s hard to look past us when looking at the quality of the trophies gathered.

The Red Devils’ number of Community Shields, for instance, would technically allow them to leapfrog Liverpool as the No.1 club in England – if one were so inclined as to rate it as a serious, major piece of silverware.

Having won double the number of Champions Leagues as our arch rivals alone, there’s certainly a convincing argument behind Speedie’s claim.
