Team in the Top 3 vs. Team in the Bottom 3, yet only 1 goal difference.

I expected more.

KingPin1377d ago

what i read was
"Team in the Top 3 vs. Team in the Bottom 3, yet only 1 goal difference."

what i understood is
"team that spent 250 million vs team that only worth 50 million, yet only 1 goal difference."

and can someone please explain to me what happened for there to be 6 mins of extra time? was someone injured? a fight? or is it only when united that get 5+ mins when they 0-0 that people notice.

PaPa-Slam1377d ago

That's another correct way to look at it.

Good foul for the goal anyway.

Reading held out well and even threatened to take it near the end. The game was that stretched by then. City's strikers misfiring again.

City will be pleased with the result but not really the performance when the game should have been won long before it was. Fair few boos at half time.

Reading will be disappointed but they can take some heart with their performance, they have conceded a lot of goals of late so this is a better looking scoreline, although 0-0 would have been prettier.....

Southampton denied penalties, charity penalties against Villa, Nolan's goal ruled out, Young's goal ruled out, Tevez's kick out at Phil Jones excused, Reading robbed................. and yeah the referees favour United.

City struggled for 90m against the team that is bottom of the league and needed to climb all over a defender to score. Not looking too great in the blue quarter of Manchester

How many times have united gone behide this season again.

You act like united never struggle against weaker opposition.

You were lucky against chelsea,villa,southampton,live rpool and u just about beat
reading 4 3 concealing 3 times to a poor team.

Winning while playing poorly is a sign of Champions.

Man City drew with Chelsea and were lucky not to lose, they lost to Aston Villa, Southampton were denied clear cut penalty. You need a cheap goal just to draw against Liverpool and Reading deserved a penalty for handball and there should have been a free kick against Barry for the goal that was scored.

Lets see how you get on when Yaya goes to Africa.

United have been just as lucky this season and what happens when rvp gets injured hes due a spell on the sidelines.

KingPin1376d ago

we have chicharito, wellback and rooney as backup.
mind you when RVP gets injured, our midfielders will be back fit so it will be business as usual.

you shocked that united will be fine without spending what most clubs make in a year?
