In 1915 one of the most shameful occasions in sporting history took place. The players of Manchester United and Liverpool conspired to arrange that United would win their game with Liverpool by 2-0, thus permitting the conspirators to cash in on bets placed on that pre-arranged score-line of odds of 7/1. As a result, United did stay up but eight players were banned for life, one lost his life, the reputations of the two clubs were permanently tainted and football's image severely impaired. This is the amazing tale of that fateful Good Friday.
