Not really sure what happened, but I can imagine...
Truth is, I've been waiting all week for this game... and they've decided at the last minute to show... a f*cking TENNIS game instead!!!!!
I'm beyond pissed...
Ahh man, that sucks quite a large portion of penis.
I shall give you a run down:
Well, United without Rooney (after pulling a groin and essentially being ruled out for the rest of the season) were the impotent, clueless, Berba led team they have looked in every other game without Rooney.
Spurs set out to defend from the get go............and it showed.............there was not a SINGLE
shot on goal in the first 30 minutes............now, I dont mean "shot on target", I mean ON GOAL
As always, the "commentators curse" saw an end to this, with Andy Gray not even finishing his sentance about it and a weak shot from Roman Pav went into the hands of Big Ed.
After that, Berba has a great with a turn and shoot..........about 2 yards out!!! but of course, with it being him, it was blocked by King and would have been saved anyway.
After that, United started to probe more and it went into half time 0-0.
2nd half, again, not really much to speak of until the mistake that was "Assou-Ekotto at right back" was exposed with Berba making a great run down the left and eventually into the box...........a nice back heel to pick up Evra's run and then the aforementioned "defender" lunged in and clearly brought him down for the clearest penalty shout of the season.
Gigsy took it and slammed it into the bottom left corner, with Gomes getting a little piece of it but not enough to stop it.
This brought the game alive............decent chances at both ends before Spurs won a corner.
Swung in and onto the head of King for a great header into the right hand corner.............Rafael for some reason left his spot on the line, whereas if he hadnt, he would have had a simply clearing header.............also, the ref missed the fact that King had used Johhny Evans as a human spring board.........but hey ho.
Now United came alive and looked a team who wants the title!!! Mostly because Macheda came on for Rafael (typical Sir Alex, throwing caution to the wind, in order to win) and he laid a perfect little through ball for Nani on the right hand side of the box.............with an acute angle and a rushing Gomes, he chipped him beautifully with the deftest of touches.
This then gave United even more confidence and Nani picked up the ball on about the half way line, dribbled mazily through 3 players............and when he got into the box, with Palacios bearing down on him from behind, he went down and it was another pen.
This time, Gigsy goes the opposite corner, with even more power and ven though Gomes goes the right way again..........he cannot get anywhere near it as it slams into the side of the net.
Game set and match my man.
