Continental Long-Ball - brief update

A perversely amusing experience this evening, with my comments on English football in mind.

I've just watched the first half of Sheffield United v. Liverpool in the Premiership. For the opening twenty minutes, one side was playing with a singular dearth of ideas, pumping long balls forward for the strikers to chase and bypassing the midfield completely. The other was adopting a more measured approach, building slowly from the back and making good use of the midfield.

Which of these was Liverpool, the wonderfully cosmopolitan side with a Spanish manager, and which was Sheffield United, the side full of journeymen from the English second tier?

Erm, the team playing the long-ball rubbish was Liverpool.
