Liverpool and Juventus of Turin were drawn to play in the quarterfinals of the European Champions League, their first competitive meeting since English fans started a riot that killed 39 at the 1985 final. Before the start of the game in Brussels, on May 29, 1985, Liverpool fans started fighting with the Italian fans, and a wall between them at Heysel Stadium collapsed. Most of the dead were Juventus supporters. English clubs were banned from European competition for five years by the Union of European Football Associations.

The clash of Catholic green and Protestant orange in Northern Ireland is not - on the face of it - an inviting subject for a black comedy. But by the time Peter Smith's No Surrender has run its savage and hilarious course, the claims of both sides lie in the kind of smoking ruins that are part of the tragic landscape of Belfast. The aim of Smith's satire is to expose the multitude of sins that can be cloaked by religious bigotry. And the happiest inspiration of Alan Bleasdale's Pinteresque screenplay is to set the action in Liverpool rather than Northern Ireland.

LONDON - Liverpool was the big casualty on the Premier League's opening day, losing by 3-0 at West Bromwich Albion on Saturday, while Arsenal began life without Robin van Persie with a frustrating, 0-0 draw against Sunderland. Goals weren't a problem for Fulham and Swansea, with both teams enjoying 5-0 routs, while former Chelsea manager Andre Villas-Boas made a miserable return to English football as Tottenham lost, 2-1, at Newcastle. But there were happier returns to the Premier League for West Ham and Reading, with both teams avoiding defeat in their first matches since gaining promotion.

Liverpool won the European Champions League final for the first time since 1984, overcoming a three-goal deficit and beating AC Milan, 3-2, on penalty kicks after a 3-3 tie last night in Istanbul for the greatest comeback in the tournament's history. No team had come back from a three-goal deficit in the final, but Liverpool rallied in a seven-minute sequence in the 50th Champions League final. It was the fifth title for the English team. During a news conference at the NFL's spring meetings to announce that Tampa, Fla., would host the 2009 Super Bowl, Tampa Bay Buccaneers owner Malcolm Glazer declined to answer questions about his takeover of Manchester United, the world's richest soccer club.

Chelsea won the FA Cup for the fourth time in six seasons, beating Liverpool, 2-1, on a second-half goal by Didier Drogba on Saturday in London's Wembley Stadium. Drogba became the first player to score in four finals and helped the Blues survive a late onslaught by Liverpool. Ramires scored in the 11th minute to put Chelsea in front, capitalizing on blunders by Liverpool. In the 52d, Drogba scored his eighth goal in eight games at Wembley, sending the ball through defender Martin Skrtel's legs and into the net after a pass from Frank Lampard.

The beleaguered Liverpool city council, facing the threat of an all-out war with its municipal unions, voted to lay off 180 employees yesterday and to contract out all of the city's trash collection, thereby making an additional 460 people jobless. The decision came after nearly three months of limited strikes by the unions, including a slowdown by trash collectors that has caused 12,000 tons of trash to pile up in parks, vacant lots and back alleys. Harry Rimmer, leader of the moderate Labor Party faction that runs the council, said that he took no joy in making either move but that both were necessary if the city was to live within its means.

Goalkeeper Brad Friedel, having cleared one hurdle in his bid to play for Liverpool in the English Premier League, now is having trouble with another. This latest, unexpected hurdle is about 18 inches high. It's called the bench. Liverpool purchased Friedel from Major League Soccer in November for $1.5 million and went through six weeks of red tape convincing the British government that it needed the American badly enough that he should be given a British work permit. It now has had him for four games without using him. In order for Friedel's work permit to be renewed, Friedel will have to play in 75 percent of Liverpool's games between the time he joined the club and the end of the season.

The tiny Port of Salem, which has brought more controversy than ships to this rural South Jersey city, is back in the news again. Actually, three Salem port stories are developing. There is talk here, some of it laced with hyperbole, that the mighty Mersey Dock & Harbour Co., the British concern that has run the Port of Liverpool since 1857, might do for Gov. Whitman here what it did for Maggie Thatcher in Liverpool - transform a money-losing public seaport into a profitable private business enterprise.

MARIO BALOTELLI, the very talented yet mercurial Liverpool striker, has been known to stir the pot, and rarely in a good way. His on- and off-field tactics have usually embarrassed his club and himself, which could explain why he's played for Manchester City, A.C. Milan and now Liverpool in consecutive seasons. Yesterday, after rival Manchester United - which just might be everybody's rival - blew a 3-1 lead in losing, 5-3, to Leicester, Balotelli tweeted, "Man Utd . . . LOL. " As a native Mancunian who has friends on both sides of the City-United civil war, I understand not only the hate the two teams have for each other, but the total dislike they have for Liverpool.

The text message to Gerald van Wilgen, the president of the Camden Youth Soccer Club, was purposely vague. The sender, a coach with the club, hinted at news and asked van Wilgen to give him a call. Van Wilgen did so and could hardly believe what he heard: Liverpool FC, one of the world's most famous teams, wanted to come to Camden. And not just come, but put on a soccer clinic. "We just have to deliver the kids," van Wilgen said this month. And van Wilgen has plenty of those.

IN ENGLAND, only two courses are older than Royal Liverpool. Or Hoylake, as it's better known for the seaside town that surrounds it. The club as founded in 1869 and 28 years later hosted the first of what this week will be a dozen Open Championships, as they simply call it everywhere outside the United States. In the modern rotation, only St. Andrews (28), Muirfield (16) and Royal Troon (14) have been the venue more often. It was taken out of the rotation after 1967 not because of the course but rather the notion that it could no longer cope with the logistical issues, such as parking and concession space.

MONEY CAN buy a lot of things, but apparently a guaranteed championship in professional sports is not one of them. The results of a survey conducted by sportsintelligence.com and ESPN The Magazine, released yesterday, showed that the soccer club Manchester City FC, of the English Premier League, is currently the highest-paying franchise in the world. While Man City's overall payroll of $202 million ranks behind the New York Yankees and Los Angeles Dodgers, the average player income of $8.1 million makes it the winner.

The mystery began, Graham Farrell said in a phone call from England, when he opened a box that contained his late father's most important possessions. Inside was a sealed envelope. And on it, scrawled in his father's elegant hand, was written: "Very dear to me. " Farrell, the sole son among six siblings, came across the box as he settled the estate of his father, Albert Edward Farrell, in 2003. But only recently could he bear to open it. In the envelope he found three pieces of paper: A tattered invitation to a 1946 wedding - in Philadelphia, of all places.
