Liverpool better than Man U: official

And its Web site is better too

Security for virtualized datacentres

For those poor misguided souls who don't think Liverpool football club is superior to Manchester United, the latest figures from Nielsen/Net Ratings should put you straight.

Liverpool's Web site tops the poll of visitors - 152,000 over a three-month period, compared to just 135,000 for Man U. Plus, Liverpool fans stayed on the site twice as long as Man U. And this is despite the fact that Man U has significantly more fans living outside the UK, so a Web site is an ideal way of keeping track of the team.

Complete bias aside, the figures are hardly surprising since Liverpool has put a huge amount of effort into its www.liverpoolfc.tv site and it is quite frankly outstanding. Manutd.com is also a good site, but not of the same class.

Liverpool is going to need that quality though if it is to make a goer of its subscription service - which costs £3.99 a month. If that takes off, it could be a nice little earner for the club, along with online sales of club merchandise.

[Humourous situation] Having just rambled on about how great the site is, a quick visit has revealed that the site is "down for an upgrade" and you need authorisation to get into it. Dear oh dear. Shocking timing. ®
