I might sound rude or whatever but I’m sorry: Fletcher, Young, Nani, Evra and Jones? REALLY Giggs?? He’s making the same old mistakes all over again. Only confirming what I was saying before: Giggs is a fantastic player. Giggs got all the guys psyched after these disastrous 10 months under Moyes but he’s not ready to be the permanent manager of Manchester United. Repeat: granted he’s got the Mancunian culture, granted he learned from the best but let him be number two to our new manager and take over in 4-5 years.
No Europa League for Manchester United (MUFC) then I guess. Die-hard yet fair play as I am, I have to admit that the Black Cats had a really good back line yesterday. Even the introduction of Adnan Januzaj, Danny Welbeck and Robin van Persie wasn’t enough to penetrate it apparently!! And again, it proved that ball possession is not relevant.
I won’t comment extensively on Manchester City’s (MCFC) game against Everton yesterday since I didn’t watch the game. So after yesterday’s fixture, MCFC took a firm hold on the title race (ayo, I don’t feel like explaining why MCFC is at the top even if they have as many points as LFC… Oh and that superior goal difference is quite significant, eh!) and if they win their remaining matches, at home to Aston Villa and West Ham United, LFC is doomed!! It was fun though to see LFC’s fan desperately wishing for Everton to win See the difference again between the magnificent Manchester United and Liverpool? When we were at the top of the League, we never relied on other teams to take us to victory. We dealt with our shit “like a boss”, like some would say. So bow down to the great MUFC and pray for a win on Monday.
The match I’m looking forward to today is definitely Chelsea FC (wink at my friend Trebor) against Norwich. I’d like to see if Mourinho will ensure that there is no hangover in evidence after his exit from the UEFA Champions League on Wednesday, after a 3-1 home loss against Atletico Madrid in the second leg of their semi-final. They are, while I’m writing, 2 points behind Liverpool with two matches to play… Whatever, more on that after the game.
