What a game and what a save by De Gea! Will be save of the season. We deserved to win that game but I will happily take a draw. That is just our luck at Stamford bridge. The players will be well boosted by this comeback and this result will do for the title run in.
Yes De Gea is definitely worth £20mil now that he has made one save...not really, seen Dracula react better to crosses than him.
@BuddyMagoo Manuel Neuer cost the same amount as De Gea and he is the best keeper in the world.
Rooney really is an awful striker, hasnt scored a non pen for aslong as I can remember and I hope Mou doesnt buy him. He is way to inconsistent.
So what if he is only 20? Joe Hart got into the PL toty when he was 20? De Gea on the other hand cant even take in a ball from a simple cross and makes 1 good save every blue moon.
Kane aka Zizou That was one of the best saves I've seen in my life not worth 20m but I'm sure he'll pull some more off in his long career. After all he is only 20. Well worth the money (18m by the way) Kane aka Zizou If you knew your football you would know Neuer had just as torrid start for Bayern. Yet you don't remember that! In order to grow you must be stretched. He will hopefully learn from his troubling times and become stronger for it. As a suppose Madrid fan (really, Liverpool) you must also recall how Casillas struggled early in his career.
So the ref was MU's January signing. Can't expect Web to do it all
Man it is nonsense when United play really well against another class side then its never their own perseverance its the ref...Please give it up.
United should have had 2 pens as a MINIMUM, even AVB admitted the Ashley Young incident in the first half was probably a penalty. Not given. Then the Welbeck foul, which could have been given, Cahill could easily have been sent off straight red for being last man and Chelsea should have faced most of the game with 10 men. Cahill admits today, he was lucky to escape that!! Nothing given.
Then the second clear penalty with 20 minutes left to play- Ivanovic escapes a second yellow and could easily have been off as well. The ref obviously wanted to try and keep the contest so- No yellow.
Anyone that thinks the ref actually HELPED United get back into that game is delusional. United managed it despite him.
If it's not we shouldn't have won that, it's the ref that's on our team. If it is not the ref that's on our team, it's the opposing team bending over for us. If it is not the opposing team bending over for us, it is the manager that's colluding with Fergie. If it is not the manager that's colluding with Fergie, it is the former united reserve/youth players playing that helped us. If it is not our former players helping, it's the pie man that poisoned the players. One thing is for sure, no matter what, to opposing fans we never win anything fairly. Yet we sit here the most successful club in England. Don't you think we deserve a little respect.
The truth is in Europe where MU don't have special influence the performance in over 20 years was crap other than 1999( the only truly great MU team under Ferg) . And the other cup winning side was just ok. In that time teams like Juventus, RM, Barc, Milan had much more success in very little time.

This is amusing because the 3 foreigner rule that was deemed illegal and abolished after the Bosman case restricted english clubs badly in europe for the first ten years of Ferguson's tenure, especially with the home nations being considered as separate nations it hurt English clubs more so than from any other nation with major clubs.
Even players like Roy Keane, Ryan Giggs, Denis Irwin, Mark Hughes and Brian Mcclair were considered 'foreign' and fell foul of restrictions. Despite several of them being 'British'.
3 years after this rule ended for 1996, Manchester United were Champions of europe. 9 years later they won it again.
In fact since that ruling ended only 4 clubs have won multiple European cups Real Madrid, Milan, Barcelona and.....Manchester United.
Manchester United have reached 4 finals out of the last 15 since the ruling- only Juventus equal that and their last final was 9 years ago this year. Eat those stats up.
United's team of the early 90s was class, and had Ferguson been able to field his first team i am pretty sure they would have taken more honours in Europe. Just look at what happened in 1991 European cup winners cup and then the super cup...United flattened BOTH acclaimed Belgrade and Barcelona teams.
The year after, the foreigner rule was enforced. We'll never know for sure if United could have won more, but United would have been challengers at the very least.
LOL Keep drinking that cool aid, what MU needed 20 years to do those other teams did in 4 years. MU is just a hot air balloon buffed by the English press, don't remember any class player leaving Italy or Spain to go to them because they know it will be a steep down.
i dunno how we was 3-0 down at any stage.. AVB taking of sturridge helped our cause in the second half he was their most dangerous player.. good to see we kept goin till the end i thought we mite have nicked a victory but a point is better than none
Premier league strikes again with another big thriller. Top class entertainment.
I couldn't quite believe what i was seeing when United were 3 down after 50 minutes because they had been the better side the first half. They looked very comfortable and not really troubled by Chelsea but three chances and they were all taken with a sprinkling of luck Chelsea had a big lead. United seemed to get very little in the first half, with decisions that could have easily gone their way but didn't. Welbeck could have had a pen in the first, and Ivanovic could ever so easily have been off after the second penalty in the second half.
But then United stepped it up big time and righted the wrongs because it was never a fair scoreline. They dominated most of the second half and fully deserved at least a point for sure.
Chelsea have a top record against United at Stamford Bridge in no small part to a raft of luck. It was a good game and both teams will probably be reasonably happy to take a point each, although Chelsea must surely wonder how they didn't win being 3 up with 40 minutes to play.
United fight on and although it wasn't a win it may feel a little bit like one, a footballing victory, and they can get even better from here with players coming back from injury.
If nothing else it is a warning to City this will be taken to the wire and United will not quit. If United keep it cranked then the pressure cooker fixture at the Etihad will decide the title and City will have to prove they are worthy.
but I hope somebody please boo him for his terrible defense! and Evans...he's like a ticking bomb in United defense! the absence of Vidic is really kicking United in the crotch!
I've never been so happy about a draw, and wtf was all that booing to Ferdinand about?
that boo-ing sound you heard is when a chelsea fan is cheering his team with his head far up his ass.
absolutely appalling behavior.
boo-ing the brother of the victim of a race row.
they need to grow up. today chelsea fans made liverpool fans look awesome!!
I know how weird.... I don't get it, why would he get booed for that?? Those booing are either disgraceful human beings or just have absolutely nothing between their ears, I think for the majority it's probably the latter.
some game that was as a Liverpool fan happy with a draw :) This will go down to the wire between city and United the gap won't be bigger than 3 points
I'm thinking I should put Howard Webb in my fantasy team, gets points for United everytime!
you're an idiot
is torres not getting you enough fantasy points there?
best match of the season.
hands down most exciting. de gea for me still isnt convincing. yes he made a couple good saves but some of his decisions puts the defence under pressure for no reason.
chelsea must be gutted though, at 3-nil they wouldve thought they home and dry.
ofcoz you would, liverpool isnt winning much so cant brag there.
and you forgot the 8-2 thrashing we gave arsenal. that was exciting too. but yeah, still harping on a match long forgotten by many.
Best match of the season? I preferred the Man U 1-6 Man city.
Liverpool isnt winning? Why would I care? :/
Fergie on lack of first half pens: "I dont blame Howard Webb I blame the linesman..." ...jeez, he really is back in the good books!
Al Habsi has had more clean sheets than £20MIL DE GEA.
if your a madrid fan why would you prefer the 6-1 match?... this was far more exciting and the chelse 3 arsenal 5 was better aswell.
Top, top, top save by De Gea - especially impressive when you take into account the fact that he is completely shite.
Actually cant believe we didnt keep Mata at Madrid and let him go for basically nothing :(
Howard Webb really is an awful ref, seen better refereeing in the Real Madrid castilla game the other day.
Nice assist from De Gea for the 1st goal.
I cant wait till United are back in the CL next season, we will demolish them, 20-0 Ronaldo with 5, Higuain with 5, Benzema with 5 and Ozil with 5.
Definitely the worst United team and by far the worst defense I have seen in all my 29 years on this planet
I am actually shocked that United are 2nd in the league, the prem must be really awful.
Howard Webb the royal referee my ass.
I actually felt sorry for Chelsea, it was 11 vs 12 after all.
Wow it really is you Kane, what happened to your old account? If you watched the full game, you would have seen United got plenty of decisions against their way, and stop pretending you're in Madrid, you sound like an embarassing bitterful retard.
i take it he ran out of bubbles.
cant troll with one bubble now can he.
edit - LMFAO funny how he launched his hyped up liverpool to support Real Madrid. it was only a matter of time before he jumped ship. again showing that anything he says is only meant to be taken with a grain of salt. his just here to troll united articles. he doesnt support any team, he just supports the winners. he knows nothing about football.
Kane - Do we really need members like this on here? It's depressing and prevents any real discussion
Completely agreed it used to be diffrent on here.. there was little trolling and stupid comments
that the reason I haven't been on here for almost a week or more I think lol
Your a bit of a rambler but... "especially impressive when you take into account the fact that he is completely shite"... I laughed out loud!
Great game! Shame we didn't get the 3 points but I'm very happy with the draw seeing as at one point it didn't look like we'd be getting any! Great save by De Gea.
Can't wait for Liverpool and United playing will be another cracker of a game. We need to beat Spurs first though
great game, couldnt believe we were 3-0 down. totally deserved a draw if not a win at the least. say what you want about howard webb and the penalties, it would have been a digrace if we got nothing out of that game. rooney was everywhere, please play like this until the end of the season.
The most descriptive comment ever lol
Great game and I think the draw was fair. I think Welbeck played for his peno but it made up for Youngs peno shout in the first half. Torres still seems to be in a rut, I wonder if he will ever snap out of it. Just take the shot man!!
Considering we ere missing 5-6 players most of whom are usually starters I'll take the draw I guess. I just wish these games could go by without one side or the other having to complain about referee decisions.
we both had a few player missing but at 3-0 up you gotta see out the game.. dunno wh avb took off sturridge he realy needs to play sturridge up top instead of forcing him out wide... mata's strike was pure class tho, great tekkers.. i'm not sure what there is to complain about in terms of the ref
Yeah, I don't mean to sound like I'm complaining. Being up 3-0 means there aren't any excuses to not win the game. I still think that second penalty was soft. The way our form has been though I wouldn't have been surprised if we'd been blown away. We've seemed to have picked ourselves up for most of the big games though. I'll do a Kane and say we're undefeated in 2012 haha.
Mozilla Come on! We were also missing big players like Vidic, Nani, Jones, Fletcher, Smalling, Anderson, Cleverley, Lindegaard. Second penalty probably was soft but Wellbeck wasn't looking for it. It was just a 50/50 legs getting caught. Cahil could have been sent off for being the last man in the first half. Even he admitted so. It was a fair contest in the end in my opinion and a fair result. Even though I would have liked the 3 points.
decided to watch pokemon the first movie over this.... I figured that man u you win like 1-0, 2-0.... didn't see this coming. Time to bash my Chelsea friend.
There's a difference between sticking up for your team/players and being LEGENDARY @$$HOLES. The Chelsea fans that booed Rio Ferdinand today deserve to be garotted. *EDIT* Ok, maybe that was a bit harsh, but why the hell are they booing him? Good game by the way.
What a comeback by Manchester United! Both teams played really well. David De Gea made some incredible saves!
That was a really good game and yet again united showing the never die attitude. I was shouting at the tv for united to start playing the ball up the pitch but no they did not panic even at 3 0 down. The squad has taken alot of stick over the last few years over the signing of some players but games like this show what they can do and show what saf is like as a manager. I think this game could be the turning point in our season. The squad is well mixed with. Youth and experience SAF is starting to build a squad to take on europe again. This is a message to city as well as i dont recall city in any game this season not scoreing 1st and coming back to win.
when i saw 3-1 i had a feeling UTD would bring it back, sad. I noticed Fergie made it very clear he didnt blame webb....funny that, He singed out the linesman like webb was nowhere to be seen.. He missed a couple in utds favour to be fair but I still feel hes their 12th man. Villas B made the same mistake Wenger did and that was to bring take off the livewire. We saw glimpses of what ox c will bring to the epl and sturidge has been dangerous all season. You cant sit back on a utd side....theyll keep coming. GG Did anybody see that deybut goal by the newcastle guy....not a bad shot for his chocolate leg aey
WIN WIN situation for fans, well depending on how chelsea fan took it. What a brilliant game, Although I have to say why did AVB take of sturridge? LOL
What an amazing game and comeback from united. 1st penalty was clear for all except chelsea fans but the 2nd was a soft penalty but i would say a penalty since if you look at some replays it does show him taking a foot out from under him although it wasnt a dive either just one of those decisions where it will be split on who thinks it was a penalty and who doesnt. to say there are so many injuries to united 2 points behind at this point in the season is truly outstanding and shows even with all the money city have and the quality they might have brought they havnt been able to truly buy the champion attitude that teams like united have.
I can understand why Americans hate this sport, what a joke of diving and penalty calling. I just always know there is going to be shady calls in these big games, this sport is in bad shape. I have no interest in either team BTW, but this place is flooded with United fanboys, you should be ashamed to take that draw. Evra's dive was a joke, he should be suspended and so should the ref. Welbeck ran into Ivanovic's leg. This sport needs help, badly.
Not going to complain that much since I am happy with the result, but Howard Webb is so biased for Utd its unbelievable how he is still considered the best ref. Soft penalty decisions
