Liverpool v Man United – Where Will You Be Watching?
October 17, 2016 (No Comments) by Darren Bates

Is there any game, in English Football, more anticipated than Liverpool v Man United? We at TheSharpe don’t think so. A fixture that’s produced more highlights than ‘Reeling in the Years’, football fans will no doubt be tuning in in their droves come Monday night.

Well, you may put a hold on that diet, ‘cause the fact that Liverpool v Man Utd is on Monday night can only mean one thing… Monday pints! It’s never advisable to go too mental of a Monday, but if you do decide to go out for “just the one”, here are a few places we’d recommend:

Dicey’s (Harcourt Street)

Ah Dicey’s! ‘Tis a great spot if you’re looking to get drunk for next to nothing plus they’ve loads of TVs so you’ll definitely get to see the match (some of it anyway!). However, we recommend arriving early if you’re fond of sitting, as Dicey’s attracts big crowds for big sporting events, which makes for a class atmosphere, but also means you’ll probably be crowd surfing to the bar.

Final word to the wise on Dicey’s, if you do decide to head there, much like when Liverpool play United, things can quickly get out of hand and before you know it you’re on the Copper’s dancefloor at 3am googling “how to pull the perfect sickie” (true story!).

The Square Ball (Hogan Place)

If you’re looking for a place to watch the match that’s not packed to the rafters with students skullin’ Jaegarbombs, then The Square Ball could be the place for you. The craftiest of beers and the chickeniest (of course it’s a word!) of chicken wings can both be enjoyed whilst you watch the ‘Scouse Manc Derby’ on The Square Ball’s giant projector screen, and all at reasonable enough prices.

Your House

Don’t get it twisted (as DMX would say), ‘Your House’ isn’t Dublin’s hottest new sports bar… we mean watch the match at home! If you’re not up for heading out on a school night (and let’s face it, your body will thank you come Tuesday morning), then there’s no place like home. But if you do choose to have a few beers whilst watching, the good thing is – no expensive taxi home! If you don’t have access to Sky Sports, searching “Liverpool v Man United Live Stream” in Twitter’s search bar often produces a quality stream or two.

A Few Bets for the Interest!

We at TheSharpe are by no means betting experts so we’d prefer to let the stats do the talking. The stats below should help you make up your mind when you’re deciding on who or what to have your 5 quid on (all odds provided by Paddy Power):

The Little Spaniard, Juan Mata, has had a hand in 5 goals in his last 4 appearances against Liverpool in the League, scoring 3 and assisting 2.

Mata to score anytime at 11/4.

The Brazilian Magician, Philippe Coutinho, has been pulling the strings for Liverpool this season; creating 21 chances and notching 3 goals.

Coutinho to score first at 13/2.

Liverpool v Man United matches are redder than Sir Alex’s nose, with 16 red cards shown in League games; the second highest after Liverpool v Everton.

A red card to be shown in the match at 21/10.

Man United to be shown a red at 4/1.

Liverpool to be shown a red at 11/2.

Well wherever you watch it, let’s hope it lives up to the hype, and if you do head out… stay safe!
