The club had asked on Twitter for suggestions of a three-song playlist to go out over the speaker system at Anfield just prior to kick-off in Sunday’s Barclays Premier League match there between the Merseysiders and bitter rivals Manchester United. One response read: “Come fly with me – Frank Sinatra. Always look on the bright side of life – Eric Idle. I like to move it – Reel to Real” – three songs associated with making fun of the 1958 tragedy in Munich which claimed the lives of 23 people, including eight United players. Liverpool replied with: “Have you been sneaking a look at the dressing room iPod?” An apology was subsequently issued, with a club spokesperson saying: “Liverpool Football Club responded quickly to correct the error of judgement that was made last night on its official Twitter account in responding to a distasteful and inappropriate Tweet. “The club took decisive action and the comment was deleted swiftly. “We apologise, unreservedly, for any offence that was caused by this mistake.” Press Association Liverpool have apologised for any offence caused by a message posted on their official Twitter account which appeared to mock the Munich air disaster.
