I’m home and haven’t seen MotD2 yet. Meeting after the game on other crap that I’ve now got to get involved with.
But the game – I do hope it riles us up to start the next game a bit firmer.
Ridiculous start – bizarre – one off the arse of Luiz then the 2nd beginning with plug walking out of defense with oscar backing off – 2 passes take Cole out the game and a cross gives van persie has a shot with no-one close. They deserved the 2nd just for our crap defending. Early doors or not. We are easily hit when cold.
But, apart from that I honestly thought they were not very good. I honestly didn’t. At half time at the bar I said we’d score 3 in the 2nd half. I was wrong, but I didn’t foresee the 2 sending offs (!). From where I sit I thought Brani was unlucky with the first sending off as the manc cut across him, and for the 2nd I thought Torres was fouled. I couldn’t believe he got a 2nd card. I’ve now been sent a snapshot to my phone showing he was.
I also thought Rooney should’ve been booked for a 2nd time, but was inexplicably let off. Red-nose subbed him quickly within 2 mins to save him not getting sent off at the next tackle.
I honestly think they weren’t very good. I have to say that again. To be 2 goals down to that mediocre team says some bad things about our defending, but we were going to play out of that, and nearly did. Step in some shit pro-manc reffing. I say we’d have won 4-2 had that Clattenburg 2nd half not been as it was. It was a fkn farce.
I’m looking fwd to MotD2 – so I can be proved wrong if that’s the case, but I reckon the mancs were poor, and it will show that. Red-nose’s lucky day. He will have the incompetent clattenburg in his good books now. Red nose’s tactics were to try early – and it worked. hand up to that. But after that it was all luck, and the ref. I don’t believe any manc fans think otherwise. 9-men looked like they’d have got soemthing, bar from that scramble.
Oh – and van persie has fitted in well. How quick has he become a cheating manc knt?! What a wnkr. Running to the ref with a programme that was thrown on at the little mexican knt gloating at the crowd. And why wasn’t that little knt booked?
Fkn joke. The whole thing. But what good will come out of it is everyone can see what the pro-manc refs are really like, and hopefully we’ll react accordingly.
I just hope it gets us riled up for the next PL game, and onwards. I do hope it gets us going.
Up the Chels’.
