What is it with unusual pitch invaders on Merseyside lately? Last week, a protestor cuffed himself to the posts at Goodison Park to register his disgust with a budget airlines, and tonight a cat found its way onto the pitch during Tottenham's bout with Liverpool at Anfield.

Brad Friedel was visibly freaked out by the impromptu appearance of the misplaced moggy — perhaps he thought Harry Redknapp had sent one of his pets in his absence from the match — and Liverpool fans responded with the inventive chant "a cat, a cat, a cat, a cat, cat." Spurs fans rebutted by directing a chorus of "You're Spurs and you know you are," at the feline intruder.

All I can say is this CATastrophe would have been purrfect if this game was in the Milk Cup. (Sorry, I'll get my coat.)
