* One of TheThirtySixStratagems indicates that both at least one enemy and one ally will derive their strength from their position. While still useful to attempt to "lure the tiger from the mountain," it's also wise to protect the mountain on which your own tiger rests. If the enemy manages to make it there, your ally will not have to travel far to complete the kill.

*** Old Trafford, home stadium of Manchester United (arch-rivals of the above mentioned Liverpool), dubbed 'the Theatre of Dreams' by club legend Sir Bobby Charlton, was the basis for two decades of dominance of the English game. It helps that with a capacity of over 75,000, it's the largest club stadium in Britain, second largest stadium as a whole in Britain and ninth largest in Europe. The phenomenon of "Fergie time" has often been remarked upon; there was a distint tendency for even the ''referee'' to be intimidated both by the size of Old Trafford, its vocal home support, and the tendency of United's players to be vocally and intimidatingly dissnting of decisions that went against them[[note]]something their manager Sir Alex Ferguson turned a seriously blind eye to. Referees were also horribly aware that a bad match report from a manager of the biggest and most financially powerful team in the Premiership could well be held against them in their own performance reviews. Too many negative reports from team managers and a referee risked losing his status as an official in the top flight. [[/note]] quite often injury timre might stretch out for an unfeasibly long, long, time past the official ninety minutes and it was remarked upon how quickly the games then ended after United scored an equaliser or a winning goal at home. Not that the ref was being intimidated by the ground, the team, or Fergie the manager, of course!
